Hatch Rest Sound Machine Hatch Rest 2nd generation – Night Light, Sound Machine, and Time-to-Rise

The Hatch Rest Sound Machine is a must-have to any nursery, and it is my go-to purchase for baby showers! This is my #1 sleep item. I never would have thought a sound machine would make such a difference in my life, but it did and still does 4 years later! Once I turned this bad boy on when my daughter would not sleep, it was an instant game changer! It’s a versatile device that provides a range of sounds, including white noise and other soothing sounds, a time-to-rise clock, 2-way monitor system. You can control this device through their mobile app, making it so easy to customize the sound and volume. The Hatch Rest Sound Machine also comes with a night light that emits a soft glow for those nighttime feedings and diaper changes.

Copper Pearl Swaddle Blankets and Crib Sheets

Copper Pearl swaddle blankets and crib sheets are made of high-quality, soft, and breathable fabric. The swaddle blankets are perfect for wrapping up your baby, keeping them snug and secure without making them feel like they are in a strait jacket! I prefer to use these blankets over Velcro swaddles. Their crib sheets are designed to fit standard crib mattresses, and they come in a variety of beautiful patterns and colors. Not only do these items look great in your nursery, but they’re also functional and easy to wash.

Burt’s Bees Footie Pajamas and Sleep Sack Organic Baby Pajamas

Burt’s Bees Footie Pajamas are made of 100% organic cotton, making them gentle on your baby’s delicate skin. The fabric is soft and breathable, which is essential for keeping your baby comfortable throughout the night. These pajamas come in a variety of styles, including footed and non-footed options. The patterns are so cute and if you have more than one kiddo – you can match! Who doesn’t love a matchy, matchy sibling moment! I want one of everything! Their sleep sacks are another great option that allows your baby to feel cozy and secure without the need for loose blankets. They are not thick, so one-layer underneath is perfect for nighttime sleep.

Portable Blackout Shades

These portable blackout shades are perfect for traveling or for use in rooms with inadequate light control and they don’t break the bank! These shades are made of high-quality, durable fabric that blocks out light, making it easier for your baby to fall asleep and stay asleep. The shades are easy to install and can be adjusted to fit any window size. Black out blinds are a must for baby and toddler sleep spaces, especially in these spring and summer months when it gets dark way after bedtime.

Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier

The Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is an excellent way to add moisture to the air in your baby’s room. This can help alleviate dry skin, congestion, and coughs, making it easier for your baby to breathe while they sleep. There is nothing worse than your little one with a stuffy nose and that wet cough during those dry, winter months. The Crane Humidifier is easy to use and can run for up to 24 hours on a single tank of water. You do have to clean this on the regular, but it is the best humidifier that I have come across!

Graco Pack ‘n Play Graco® Pack ‘n Play® Portable Playard

The Graco Pack ‘n Play is a versatile sleep solution for babies and toddlers. This portable play yard can be used as a safe place for your baby to sleep while traveling or visiting friends and family. It’s also a great option, that doesn’t break the bank, for napping during the day and providing a safe and comfortable place for your baby to rest.

Halo Bassinet HALO® Bassinest® Premiere Series Swivel Sleeper in Pebble

The Halo Bassinet is a popular choice for parents of newborns. This bassinet swivels 360 degrees, making it easy to reach your baby from any angle. This is a great bassinet for C-Section mamas since the bedside wall can be lowered from bed and returns automatically. It also has a built-in nightlight, soothing sounds, and vibration settings to help your baby sleep. Additionally, the mesh walls provide plenty of ventilation, ensuring that your baby stays comfortable throughout the night.

Slumberpod SlumberPod

The Slumberpod is a wildly awesome sleep solution that helps create a dark and quiet environment for your baby to sleep in. It’s a portable, privacy pod that fits over most standard playardsand travel cribs. It provides a cozy and private sleeping space for your little one, whether you’re at home or on the go. There are special pockets inside where you can put your baby monitor camera and a fan. If you’re anything like me – you think your kid is always hot, so the option to have a fan was gold! The Slumberpod also helps block out distractions, ensuring that your little one gets a restful and peaceful sleep while room sharing.

Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle Cream Organic Cotton Swaddle

The Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle is a popular choice for parents who want to swaddle their baby securely without using traditional blankets. It’s designed to wrap around your baby’s arms and chest, preventing the startle reflex that can disrupt sleep. The sleep sack also has a bottom zipper, making diaper changes quick and easy! Anything that makes middle of the night diaper changes a little easier on us mamas, is an A+ in my book. Additionally, it’s made from breathable fabric, ensuring that your baby stays comfortable throughout the night. I will also note that on the Halo website it states that this design is recognized by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute as promoting healthy hip development.

Cloud Island Sleep ‘n Play Pajamas

These pjs can be found at Target and they are the only pjs that my youngest wore for his first year of life – daytime and nighttime! Not only are the patterns so cute, but they are so comfy! These pjs also come with a zipper that you can unzip from the foot up making for easy, breezy diaper changes through out the day and night. How cool is that? These pajamas are made with soft and breathable materials that are gentle on baby skin, allowing for a comfortable and restful sleep. They also feature a secure and snug fit, which helps prevent any potential hazards such as loose fabric or suffocation.

Infant Optics Baby Monitor

The Infant Optics Baby Monitor is a reliable and easy-to-use baby monitor that offers a range of features to ensure your baby’s safety and comfort. This is the monitor that I chose to register for with my first baby. It has a 3.5-inch color screen that displays clear, real-time video of your baby. It also has two-way audio, allowing you to talk to your baby or soothe them with your voice. The monitor also has an adjustable camera, night vision, and temperature sensor, making it a great option for monitoring your baby’s sleep. This monitor is also able to add up to 2 additional cameras, 3 total. I can watch both my daughter and son using the same monitor, which is a plus! This monitor does not have a WI-FI option for you to watch baby from outside of the house. I prefer this because it would just amply my anxiety being able to watch the monitor the whole time I was at work or out of the house. So that is something to consider if you are like me.

Nanit Baby Monitor Nanit Pro Baby Camera

The Nanit Baby Monitor is a high-tech solution that uses a camera and computer vision technology to track your baby’s sleep patterns. This monitor is used with an app on your phone, so you are able to see baby while you are out of the house. It provides a bird’s eye view of your baby’s crib, allowing you to monitor their movements and sleep behavior. The Nanit also provides sleep analytics, including tips on how to improve your baby’s sleep habits. Additionally, it has two-way audio, so you can talk to your baby or sing them to sleep. I know a lot of families that love this monitor and have nothing but great things to say about it, but like I said in the Optic Infant section, my anxiety wouldn’t be able to handle all of the sleep analytics and being able to constantly have the baby monitor at my fingertips.
