Thank you Babbleboxx for sponsoring today’s post about baby must haves for the first year.
Having a baby is a joyous occasion. It changes you life forever. With all the change that come so does the abundance of advice and information. Everyone has an opinion – some good and some bad.
Whether or not you are a first time mom or second, baby gift ideas change quickly. I know that a lot has changed from having my first baby four years ago.
Babbleboxx sent me the Baby on Board box which is perfect for new moms or veteran moms like myself. Inside the box I found six baby must haves both mom and baby can take advantage of during the first year.
Baby Must Haves for the First Year
bloom BABY: Wipes
These soft to the touch durable baby wipes are a must. Not only do we use them to change dirty diapers, we use them to wipe dirty messes around the house. You can never have enough bloom BABY: Wipes. They also make wipes formulated for sensitive skin.
Vichy: Mineral 89 & Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream
The first year of a baby’s life can be tough on mom’s skin. The lack of sleep can leave a mom feeling frumpy and skin looking dull. Believe me – my baby is 7 months old and still not sleeping through the night. After using Vichy: Mineral 89 and Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream my skin feels soft, smooth and looks fresh.
Mineral 89 boosts hydration, plumps and fortifies. It also pairs well with Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream for 48 hours of deep hydration. It’s 100% transparent and paraben-free.
Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is a rich moisturizing cream with Vichy Mineralizing Thermal water and hyaluronic acid. It fortifies sensitive skin while boosting hydration and comfort.

My sweet baby is now curious about everything. He is no longer content with sitting in a chair staring at the world. He desires to play and explore.
I love that the Oball: Rattle can provide entertainment for him anywhere we go. It’s great to take when we are on-the-go and I need help keeping him content. I like to bring it when we take sister to gymnastics and we are in the waiting room for an hour.
The Oball: Rattle is easy to clean- simply wipe with a damp cloth and mild soap. I love that it’s easy for my son to grab, shake and bring along. This sensory toy also makes a great add on gift for anyone’s registry.
Beech-Nut: Stage 1 Oatmeal Cereal
What I love about this organic baby food option is that it’s a great first food for starting solids. It ha s an easy-to-pour sprout and curved grip to prevent spilling baby cereal on your table. But if you do spill don’t forget about the baby wipes I mentioned above.
It has a built-in measuring cup so no more wasting time hunting down one! How cool is that?
The Beech-Nut Organic Multigrain baby cereal is very portable so I can bring it with me when we decide to get out for the day.
Mustela Hydra Bebe
I can’t say enough great things about the Mustela Hydra Bebe lotion. We were first introduced to this product when my daughter was born years ago . This daily moisturizing lotion is formulated with an elixir of plant-based ingredients including Jojoba Oil, Sunflower Oil, Vitamins E and F, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter, and Avocado Perseose, I love how it goes on my baby’s skin smoothly.
I hope these baby products will bring you as much joy as your baby has or soon will (if you are expecting).
