1. Best Nest Wellness® Vitamin D 3 drops (400IU per drop)
Vitamin D3 is vital for the breastfed baby. It helps develop healthy bones, healthy muscles, and to strengthen the function of your babies immune system. I believe this particular brand is the best vitamin D3 drop because it is 100 percent natural. It contains NO ADDED sugar, colors, flavors, preservatives, gluten, GMO’s, dairy, Soy or yeast.
2. Water Wipes®
Purchased at Target
In hospitals, wipes are not used to clean babies bottoms. Instead, gauze and warm water are used. That being said, why would you start using anything different once you are at home? Water wipes are just that, 99.9 percent water and 0.1 percent fruit extract. Baby skin is very delicate and should be cleaned with the most gentle and purest wipe.
3. Milk snob® Nursing Cover
I cannot go a day without one of these. I own about seven, not because I need seven but because the designs are just too cute. I keep one in each of my cars, in the diaper bag, and at my mother's house. These multi-use covers allow me to nurse in public which is a big plus. They also allow me to peak at my baby without having to take the whole blanket off while he is in his car seat. Amazing!
4. Little Martin’s Drawer® Baby Nail File
Even though I am a skilled pediatric nurse; nothing scares me more than cutting my babies nails. Needless to say, this electronic nail file is heaven sent. It is extremely safe and efficient. It has different heads for different ages. I am still using 0-3 months for my four-month-old, and it works great. It cuts and shapes the nails so perfectly AND DOES NOT HARM the babies skin, cuticles or nail beds. If you have a moving baby, you will not cut or break any skin while using this product. I, however, do recommend cutting a babies nails 10 minutes after the baby has fallen asleep for the best results.
5. Burt’s Bees® 100% NATURAL Diaper Rash Ointment
$8.99 for 3oz
My son had sensitive skin as a newborn, and the ONLY cream that I found compelling was the Burt's n Bees diaper rash ointment. Rash cleared up in just hours. It is 100% natural and contains Shea butter, lavender oil, and jojoba seed oil. This cream is formulated with no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, SLS and is not tested on animals.
