Six Baby Products Nannies Can’t Live Without

Some of the baby products I cannot live without are diapers, baby wipes, baby bottles, teethers, bouncer, and muslin burp cloths.

Here are my favorite:

1. Diapers
I like senstive disposible diapers, especially  Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive Diapers. But many parents and nannies prefer cloth diapers. I love GroVia Cloth Diapers.

2. Wet Wipes
Not only are baby wipes great for cleaning baby tushies, but for wiping up messes, even for school-aged children. They are so useful for cleaning hands, wiping up spills, and cleaning messy faces after eating for children of all ages. I love sensitive Pampers Sensitive Wipes I also like WaterWipes Unscented Baby Wipes.

3. Baby Bottles
Even when mothers breastfeed they need to have baby bottles so their caregivers can help feed their infants. Click here to see what nannies say are their favorite baby bottles.

4. Burp Cloths
Infants spit up. Nannies and au pairs not only need extra baby clothes on hand, they should carry an extra clean shirt for themselves as well. After using dozens of brands of baby burp cloths my favorite by far are Aden + Anais 100% Cotton Muslin Burp Cloths. They are made of lightweight muslin that is super absorbant and dry quickly. I also love that they are much bigger than other burp cloths I’ve tried over the years.

5. Bouncer or Side Swing
Having baby bouncers are essential for nannies that have to accomplish tasks around the house. Some baby bouncers have a gentle vibration you can choose to turn on that calms babies down. I highly recommend Graco Simple Sway Swing.

6. Pacifiers and Teethers
Newborns have a sucking reflex. Pacifiers calm fussy babies who need to suck. Babies also constantly put things in their mouth. I recommend buying at least two since you will need to be washing one all the time. I really like Silicone Teething Toys, The Original Teething Egg, and Sophie the Giraffe.
