Products We Use & Recommend for Baby

  • BumGenius 4.0 One Size pocket diapers (Seriously, they’re SO easy! So similar to disposable, and save $$$ in the long run!)
  • Cotton Babies (buy BumGenius wholesale)
  • Rockin’ Green detergent for washing cloth diapers
  • Carter’s and Osh Kosh clothes — most accurate sizes IMO
  • Crocheted Beaded Jewelry for Nursing & Teething (Functional jewelry!)
  • Maya Wrap Ring Sling
  • Mei Tai Baby Carrier (We use a Freehand Mei Tai but they don’t appear to be in business anymore.)
  • My Brest Friend nursing pillow (Oh how I loved this wraparound pillow those first few months, before he started gym-nurse-tics! And before I discovered the laid-back breastfeeding method was best for us.)
  • CJ’s BUTTer (especially the Spritz for ease of use)
  • Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Shampoo & Wash
  • California Baby Shampoo & Wash
  • Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Nourishing Lotion
  • Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Nourishing Baby Oil
  • Dr. Smith’s Diaper Cream
  • Corona Ointment (for diaper rash)
  • Corn starch (for little bum!)
  • Coconut Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • MAM bottles (We didn’t use bottles often, but this was our preferred brand.)
  • NUK pacifiers (We wanted to like a few other brands, but the shape of these is like how a nipple looks in an infant’s mouth, and he preferred this kind, the few times we used them. Our boy didn’t care for pacifiers, and that’s fine with us! He found one recently in his toys and used it as a chew-toy.)

Breastfeeding was a challenge for me and baby at first, but we overcame! I love breastfeeding and wanted to share resources I found to be helpful in my breastfeeding journey.
