Our Current Favorite Things for Ralph

Now that we are 3 months in with baby Ralph (you can read a 3 month Baby Ralph update here), I felt like it would be a good time to share what things/products/etc we love using with him! From the beginning I decided that ‘less is more’ was the way that we were going to go. I didn’t want to have too many baby things just laying around the house, especially when we didn’t know what he would like or dislike. Plus, things like a high chair are completely unnecessary at this point, so why purchase before his arrival and just let it collect dust! Also, services like Amazon make it super easy to have things we might have ‘forgotten’ with just the tap of a button! See below for my favorite things that we use ALL the time.

Ralph’s Favorites

Okay, I think this is everything for now. I will do an update in a couple of months with new things we are ‘adding’ along the way! I will be doing a post on baby Ralph’s schedule soon but in the mean time let me know if you have any questions, I am more than happy to answer!

    OBSESSED with this post! I’m pregnant with our first currently and you just saved me a million hours reading all the reviews online. Thank you thank you!! I could not agree more about the less is more! Baby Ralph is so sweet…I’m praying for an easy adjustment too! And hey, don’t let the internet trolls get to you…if it works for y’all then you’re doing it right!!! Xoxo

    The dock-a-tot was our most useful baby item! I enjoyed your list but man are some of those things mad expensive. Like the beautiful Tom Ford tote 😉

    I am struggling with the diaper bag thing as well, I don’t like any of them and would rather spend money on something I do like and can use as a diaper bag. How do you keep things organized in a large tote? You said you use a large makeup bag, but what all goes into that makeup bag?

    • Totally agree! Plus, the baby isn’t always with you, so why not treat yourself to something that you can use with or without the baby!

      I’ll do a post on what exactly I use — but normally we are not gone for more than a few hours, so all i have in my ‘baby make up bag’ is diapers (probably 3), wipes (in a ziplock baggie bc you really don’t need that many), diaper rash cream (travel size), formula powder (rationed in those things I linked above), an extra onesie, a burp cloth and a bottle with water in it!

      They really don’t need that much, so there is nooooo reason to carry around a bunch of extra stuff you don’t need!

    Love those footie pajamas! That’s the only thing my seven week old wears except our are carter’s brand. I don’t like to put stuff over his head. I prefer the snap buttons to the zipper cause I get nervous I will zip him. Buttons to me make it easier to check the diaper too. My favorite splurge item is a bib I got as a baby gift from three Martha’s. I went and bought two more cause they save me in laundry!

    This post is so helpful! I’m pregnant with our first and pretty overwhelmed by all the “stuff” you need for baby. I really love that you mix higher end items with essential and practical everyday items.

    Hi! I know this is an older post but I wanted to see if your crib alarm gave many false positive alerts? I have a 12 week old boy who I swore would sleep in his own crib by now but I still find myself staring at him and checking on him in his bassinet multiple times a night. I am too afraid to have him in his own room. I am also worried that if the crib alarm goes off a lot that I might continue to check on him regardless…can you tell I am an over paranoid, first time mom? Lol!Trying to decide if the crib alarm is worth the investment. Thank you for your post and insight!

    • I was the SAME way!!! We only had 1 false alarm and that was probably when he was 9 months old…really it just meant that he was too big for the alarm because he moved so much while he slept! Crib alarm is worth it; it gave us such peace of mind!
