What’s the One Baby Product You Could Not Live Without?
Some of the baby products I could not live without are diapers, baby wipes, baby bottles, teethers, bouncer, and muslin burp cloths.
Here are my favorite:
I like senstive disposible diapers, especially Pampers Sensitive Pampers Swaddlers Sensitive Diapers.
But many parents and nannies prefer cloth diapers. I love GroVia Newborn All in One 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
3. Baby Bottles
Even when mothers breastfeed they need to have baby bottles so their caregivers can help feed their infants. Click here for our list of BPA Free 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 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.
Babies constantly put things in their mouth. The most popular teether on the market is Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether Set of 2 I recommend buying two since you will need to be washing one all the time.
