I'm pregnant with my first baby and I'm regestering for my baby shower. There's just so much stuff! What are some must haves (besides the obvious necessities) for new moms?

  • If you are breastfeeding, a pump is good to have. You will also need nursing pads, lanolin cream & nursing bras. If you are going to use a pump, register for breast milk storage bags so you can freeze your milk.

  • if you are breast feeding, get a HOOTER HIDER. I also found that my HOT SLING comes in very handy.

  • A washable cover for high chairs and grocery carts. I know you won't use it right away but this was a favorite gift. It came it so handy during those teething months when me child tried to put her mouth on everything.
