Are you looking for a unique list of ideas full of items that moms actually found useful when raising their little ones? Keep reading for a list of the most helpful baby products that we actually wanted to use with our daughter.
Some of these items are ones that I didn’t originally think to put on our baby registry, so I wanted to share them to make sure you don’t repeat my mistake.
Unique and Useful Baby Products
I found that we liked to baby wear a lot with our daughter. She also had to be upright a lot due to her reflux. So, baby wearing was quite convenient for her.
It allowed us to be hands free and allowed her to feel safe and secure. We tried quite a few baby carriers. With each carrier, I found different things that I liked, but I noticed that that they all had one thing in common.
You got what you paid for. If you paid a little extra then you would get a little extra nicer quality carrier. Personally, my two favorite carriers were the Ergobaby Omni360 and the LilleBaby 6in1 Complete Carriers.
They both had wonderful back support and shoulder pads which you will really appreciate when you child gets a little older and a little heavier.
We love taking our jogging stroller everywhere. The only thing about strollers are the lack of storage space. Enter the fix! Giant carabiner hooks for the strollers. I have two and I recommend you do the same.
I put one on each side of the arms of the stroller and can connect bags on either hook with ease. I have also been known to baby wear my daughter in my Lillebaby carrier when shopping and have been found using the stroller as a shopping cart at the same time.
These awesome carabiner hooks free up room under the stroller. Just be careful and make sure to keep the baby in the stroller seat or keep the stroller balanced if you have quite a few bags on the hooks.
Shopping Cart Hammock
We have the same problem when we got to the grocery store. When you have little ones in infant car seats, they will take up 75% of the shopping cart, leaving you no room for your groceries.
For weeks, I battled this problem and didn’t really know what to do. Wearing her was an option sometimes, but, I didn’t always want to take her out of her carseat when she was sleeping to wake her up to put her in to the shopping cart.
So, I was excited to find the Binxy Baby Shopping Hammock. You can safely put the infant car seat in the hammock on the top of the shopping cart and have the ENTIRE shopping cart back for ALL of your groceries.
Win for the baby and win for your groceries.

The Dockatot travel bed has been a lifesaver for us. We take it to my parents house for my daughter to sleep in when she watches her.
My daughter lounges in it at home. It’s her comfort place. We have taken it on vacations with us. It travels with us as her bed. She is comfortable with it, knows it is her safe spot and makes traveling a breeze.
Car Seat Saver Liner
A car seat saver liner has saved our physical car seats. It sits under the child car seat to preserve the physical seat from any disasters such as spit up, vomit, explosive diapers, bottles, juices, snacks etc.
This preserves the life of the physical car seats of your car while your child lives their life in their car seats. These liners are easy to remove and even easier to clean.
You can wipe them down with disinfecting wipes. I’ve even sprayed mine down with a hose when they’ve gotten really gross! Easy breezy clean up for the win!
Need a safe space to lay baby down that’s actually comfortable? Check out this Boppy Lounger, a product made by the popular brand, Boppy. It’s similar to the Boppy Nursing Pillow but is made more for your little one’s comfort and safety.
For the mama’s who plan to breastfeed, it is important to have a comfortable nursing bra. I know during my short nursing stents, I wanted to have a sleep bra in the first couple weeks as I adjusted.
But, as my body got used to my new motherly role, I was ready for a bra with a little more support and structure, like the one from ThirdLove.
Feeling like a normal person after starting my motherhood journey was definitely a booster.
Originally, this post had a Rock N Play in it as we absolutely LOVED ours. However, this item has been recalled for safety issues as parents weren’t using the item as it was intended.
These are a few of the lifesaving products that we didn’t realize we needed when we became parents. Looking back, I wish we would’ve had these on our registry and wanted to share these with you mama to be’s so you can make sure to add these items to your registries. Good luck!
