January Must (or Lust) Baby Items

Baby Registry Must Haves for January at Moming About

So, I can't believe I'm already six and a half months pregnant. Ever since we found out we were having a girl, I feel like time is flying! We still have the boys room and a nursery to do! Yikes!

Anyway, this is my list of must haves (okay and maybe a little lust) for January!

ERGObaby Baby Carrier

Thanks to Ashley over at My Craftily Ever After for giving me some advice on baby wearing and choosing a baby carrier/sling. After hearing from her, I'm definitely putting this baby carrier on my registry! Ashley backs it and it seems like almost every Amazon reviewer does as well! The carrier can even be used with babies 7 to 12lbs with an infant insert.

The Honest Co Diapers

Admittedly, I considered cloth diapering at least partially because it's so much cuter than regular disposables! However, I realized a while ago that cloth diapering wasn't happening in this family. Then all hope was restored when I discovered The Honest Co. Believe it or not, this company is co-founded by Jessica Alba (not that, that really matters when you're cleaning up baby poop, I suppose).
We both wanted an ideal: not only effective, but unquestionably safe, eco-friendly, beautiful, convenient, and affordable – everyone should have it. We believed every baby deserved the best we can create for them. We are dreamers.The Honest Company Founders Jessica & Christopher
Okay. Well, I can honestly say that I was drawn to them because of how stinkin' adorable their printed diapers are! Shocker! I'm so shallow, I guess. Anyway, they're jumbo packs contain a similar amount of diapers as other companies for just under $14. However, they also offer bundle packs, if you can afford to go that route. If nothing else, these gorgeous, eco-friendly diapers have me on the look out for adorable, printed, disposable diapers (which I can't seem to find from anyone else, anyway).

Kiinde Breastfeeding System

I first saw this system in a magazine, in my doctor's office waiting room. I had to come home and learn more. To be honest, I'm seriously impressed with the Kiinde system! The system appears to simplify the process of pumping, storing, and feeding baby; and is essentially a closed system. The Kiinde system has 4.6/5 stars on Amazon, with a few reviewers pointing out possible flaws (or unusual flukes) in the system. Overall, this system seems like an amazing idea for working moms or (someone like me) those who plan to exclusively pump breast milk.

Well, there you have it. There's three items that I think are a good addition to any baby registry. What are your baby musts or lusts?


  1. I think your must-haves are going to vary a lot by baby. I never needed a carrier or exersaucer with my first, but use both ALL the time with my second. I have a travel-sized Boba (the Boba Air maybe?) and I LOVE it.

    Why don't you want to cloth diaper? Just curious. I didn't with my first, but I am loving it with my second. Is there a reason you are exclusively pumping? Not trying to be mean or start Internet drama at all--just wondering!

    1. I particularly enjoy exclusively pumping and find that, for me, it was the best of both worlds. I am not offended at all by your questions. I do not like breastfeeding, but I find that I possess the discipline it takes to maintain milk supply on my own. I was getting up in the middle of the night long after my son was sleeping through it, because it does wonders for milk supply to pump in the middle of the night.

      I was on the fence about cloth diapering before finally deciding to stick with what I know. It's a mixture of a lot of things. I would kind of like to do both and am still considering that possibility. However, there tends to be a lack of support at child care centers (not that I have any need for one at the moment) and I feel that families are typically (unintentionally) unsupportive of it. It's unfamiliar and the initial investment is also a little scary. I don't want to go cheap and then have a bad experience and be scared away from it anyway before of it, either. To be honest, I'm not really sure what pushed me to decide against it, in the end. It was a decision I made months ago.

      Must haves do vary by child and parent. Some of these are more "lusty" than "must-y". :)

    2. Okay, I was just curious. Because pumping is a LOT more work than just feeding straight from the tap. And I know that a lot of women have trouble with a diminishing milk supply, especially those who pump. But if its not right for you, then that's great that you are willing to go to all that effort of pumping. .

      I had a serious lack of support when I decided to do cloth diapers, too, but I'm glad I did! Everyone got used to it. And I see nothing wrong with half and half--its worth a try, right? (If you want more info on cloth diapering, I am working on a guest post on this very subject. I can get you the link when its live.)

      Anyways, not trying to push my agendas, just chatting :)

    3. Ironically, I find pumping less work. :)
