Let’s face it, there are so many infant products on the market. Sometimes the over abundance of gadgets, toys, and infant care can make it nearly impossible to figure out what products are worth buying. After going through the infant and baby stage twice, I’m excited to share five of my go-to baby products that I seriously love!
If you’re trying to find the perfect Christmas or Baby Shower gift for a new mom, you’ve come to the right place. Below are my favourite gift items that are truly useful, practical, and well…some are simply beautiful, too.

Doc A Tot ‘Lounger’
The DockATot is a multi-functional lounger/co-sleeper. They are so fantastic because they are very similar to a bassinet, except you can ‘doc your tot’ anywhere – on a plane, in your bed, on the floor, on the roof of the car (just kidding!) – they are amazing!
DocATots come in two sizes, deluxe for under 8 months old, and grande for toddlers. Mila absolutely loves her grande – it makes her feel cozy and safe – similar to the way she felt in her crib and she loves to use it for lounging, playing, and snuggling up. I think it’ll be extremely helpful when we use it to help Brielle transition to a ‘big girl bed’, too.
DocATot’s were made to essentially ‘mimic’ the womb. The shape of it allows your baby to feel cozy, secure, and comforted but is 100% breathable. And the patterns and colours are absolutely beautiful. Our Grande Doc a Tot is the ‘Lighter Shade of Pale’ pattern and our Deluxe is the ‘La Vie En Rose’. I’m obsessed with the floral prints!

Dr.Brown’s Glass Anti-Colic Bottles
We started using these bottles with Brielle, and we absolutely love them! I’ve always been a little bit concerned about heating up plastic baby bottles, even if they are BPA free. I’m so happy we made the switch and began using these.
Dr.Brown’s glass bottles are super easy to clean (they don’t stain or have that old milky smell after continued use). They are also anti-colic which decreases the amount of air bubbles from forming in the milk. Brielle was almost exclusively breastfed, and she never had an issue taking these bottles.
Baby K’Tan Carrier
Brielle lived in this carrier for the first six months of her life, and we absolutely loved it. This wrap is known for the simplicity of getting it on and off, and it offers five carrier positions. Brielle always wanted to be on my chest, so this allowed me the ability to get shopping or cleaning done while keeping her close and comfortable.
DotDot Baby Custom Sensory Blankets and Baby Girl Headbands
I absolutely love this shop! DotDot Baby makes custom crib blankets, sensory blankets, and adorable baby girl headbands. The owner, Jess has amazing design taste – she has gorgeous patterns and colours to choose from, whether you’re looking for something gender neutral, rustic or feminine. The quality of her items are top notch, and her blankets are so soft.
She makes the most gorgeous head wraps – Mila just loves wearing them! And these floral blankets….swoon.
Fridababy NoseFrida Nasal Aspirator
This is one of those necessary baby items (in my opinion). I mean, who wants to suck snot out of your little ones nose? It’s not the most appealing job, that’s for sure. With that said, I have tried other nose suction contraptions, and this one is the absolute best.
When you babe has a cold and is completely full, this releaves the discomfort drastically.
Hatch Baby Rest Night Light, Sound Machine, and Time to Rise
This all in one baby rest machine is truly amazing. It’s completely customizable to you and your child’s needs, and will grow with them as they get older and their sleep requirements and patterns change. The night light colour is customizable, as is the sleep machine sound, volume level, and brightness. In addition, if you have a toddler or older child, you can set the machine to help with morning wake-ups in a peaceful and ‘natural’ way.
There are specific sleep specialist settings on the machine that assists you with choosing the right settings for an ideal sleep. And bonus – you can program it all from your phone! A good sleep machine has been a life saver for my girls, and in my opinion, this one is the best!
So there you have it, my go-to baby items. Share yours below!
