    Hi everyone, I'm Conz and I'm a first time mom. I'm not gonna lie and say I was totally clueless about what babies need, so I did a TON of research and thought I had the perfect registry with everything that we were ever going to need. I was wrong, so here are some things I ~actually~ really needed and loved.

    1. The SNOO, a bassinet developed by a pediatrician to help your newborn sleep better and for longer stretches.

    2. A Boppy Lounger that will allow you to safely plop your baby next to you so you can stare at them for hours.

    3. A hand pump that allowed me to be on-the-go and not worry about my boobs.

    4. Speaking of feeding babies, the Haakaa milk collector helped me start a freezer stash.

    5. A Tula carrier to keep your little one comfy and snuggled against you.

    6. A baby monitor with a camera and night vision.

    7. A week's worth of Thinx, the period underwear that can handle postpartum bleeding.

    8. A baby pool floatie that is equal parts cute and helpful.

    9. The Magic Merlin Sleepsuit will make nap times magical for those babies that hate being swaddled.

    10. A baby shusher for when you are on the go and baby needs to nap.

    11. A DockATot for safe sleeping... ANYWHERE!

    12. This Fisher Price dome that will keep your baby safe and happy anywhere you go.

    13. Links, all the links, get as many links as you can handle.

    14. High contrast books are awesome to keep newborns entertained.

    15. This Lovevery playmat that is not only entertaining for babies but also super stylish.

    16. This book that taught me everything I know about baby's sleep.

    17. The Pockit stroller was made for traveling parents.
