5.  Arm's Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet - Natural by Arm's Reach
The list author says:
  "We got this second hand at the last minute because her crib was not able to go in our room for the first few weeks.  It was great to have her right by our side and still get some sleep without the fear of rolling on her.   However, I have read from others to buy the regular size and it doubles as a pack n play too."

6.  aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddle Blanket 2 Pack, Princess Posie by aden + anais
The list author says:
  "We have one of these swaddle blankets and plan on buying another one or two.  Make sure you have the 47x47 (not the 44x44). I will definately give these out as shower gifts.  Not only are they good for a sleep or calming swaddle,they are fantastic to use for a travel blanket for carseat cover."

Medela Contact Nipple Shield - Standard Size (24mm)
7.  Medela Contact Nipple Shield - Standard Size (24mm) by Medela
The list author says:
  "Saved my breast feeding experience!  After we got home from the hospital and many tears later, I remembered the nipple shield.  My husband flew frantically to get it out of the drawer and my life was changed in an instant.  Yes, they were still sore but not the bone wrenching pain shooting through my body.  I think it made her gassy but it got us through the rough patch."

Medela Freestyle Breast Pump
10.  Medela Freestyle Breast Pump by Medela
The list author says:
  "Got this as a gift (yes, I was lucky!).  However, I read that you can use your nursing bra and rig up a "hands free" type thing.  I have done this around the house because it is easier.  When I return to work, I will use the hands free kit in it.  Definately worth the extra bucks for hands free because you can get on the computer, do dishes, talk on the phone, pay bills,etc."

Mustela Foam Shampoo for Newborns - 5.07 oz.
13.  Mustela Foam Shampoo for Newborns - 5.07 oz. by Mustela
The list author says:
  "We actually got the set for a shower gift and like it all.  As a must-have out of this set, I would say the newborn foam shampoo because it seems to help the most with dry scalp.  We have used Aveeno, J&J, etc and this helped the most.  The rest is great but is more expensive than other products."
