Making Life Easier-Newborn Products

When you are trying to be prepared for your baby to be born, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out what you need.

When I was in my first trimester of pregnancy, my husband and I entered a giant baby store, and I walked out of there not buying a thing, and feeling so overwhelmed. I probably even cried. There were so many products and I just kept thinking that it was going to be so expensive to buy everything I needed.

Well, it turns out there are a lot of things you really don't need, and some that will make your life easier. I'm sharing my top items that I absolutely love for my baby boy. They have helped me tremendously.

This was one of the first gifts I received while I was pregnant with Benjamin. The Complete Illustrated Children's Bible, by Harvest House. I was so excited when I opened it up and saw all the gorgeous photos on each page. It covers the Old and New Testament, and has 606 pages. I had been wanting a book that I could read with him for his morning devotions, and when I received this one, I knew God had heard my heart.

We usually read this in the morning times for devotional time, or sometimes in the evening if the morning got too busy. Afterwards I will sing a couple Bible songs with him that hopefully go along with the stories we read that morning. For example when we read the chapters on David, I sang the song "Only a boy named David..." and so on.

It has been such precious time that we get to spend together and with God. As soon as I lay him on the bed and pull out the book he either gets real quiet and listens intently the entire time, or he will "talk" non-stop as I'm reading it.

This is by far my favorite item I have for him. If you click the picture it will take you to a link on Amazon where you can purchase it, and I hope you do.

Fisher-Price My Little Snugapuppy Cradle 'n Swing

This swing was given to us as a gift from my husband's brother and family. There are a lot of baby swings out there, but I really enjoyed this one, and so did baby Benjamin. We keep this in our living room so I always have a place to set him when I need to do things in the kitchen/living room area.

It sings, swings, and has a shiny mirror, on the mobile, at the top that he loves to look at. He used to take his naps in this when he was newborn, and he would sleep for a couple hours at a time. It was wonderful.

Breastfeeding cover, and so much more. I love to use this around his carseat when we are going into a store or restaurant, especially if he is sleeping. It's great because it keeps the light off of hi
