My favorite baby items for the new mom

A Listmania! list by michelle k
The list author says: "My baby is almost six weeks old, and this is a list of some items I've found to be very useful/indispensable so far.

Update: baby is almost 5 months old, and I still use most of these items (just not the breast pumps as much because I've become too lazy to pump and store)."
BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Original, Gray/White, Mesh
1.  BABYBJORN Baby Carrier Original, Gray/White, Mesh by BabyBjörn
The list author says:
  "Very easy to put on/take off, keeps baby cool, and has built in head support for baby."
$66.99   Used & New from: $61.45
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (914 customer reviews)

Born Free Sterilizer
2.  Born Free Sterilizer by BornFree
$29.31   Used & New from: $15.00
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

My Brest Friend Pillow, Sunburst
3.  My Brest Friend Pillow, Sunburst by My Brest Friend
The list author says:
  "The Boppy pillow is very popular (and I have that too), but this pillow does a much better job supporting baby while breastfeeding.  It also wraps around your body, which is great, because it can be tricky juggling a newborn with no control over his body and a pillow."
$34.99   Used & New from: $26.85
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (412 customer reviews)

BABYBJORN BabySitter Balance - Black/Silver
5.  BABYBJORN BabySitter Balance - Black/Silver by BabyBjörn
The list author says:
  "I like this sitter because you can use it right from birth, as baby can "sit" in it without needing to be able to support his head."

Aden By aden + anais Muslin Swaddle Blanket 4 Pack, Oh Boy!
6.  Aden By aden + anais Muslin Swaddle Blanket 4 Pack, Oh Boy! by aden + anais
The list author says:
  "Great blankets! They keep baby warm, but are light and breathable so baby doesn't get too hot."
$34.95   Used & New from: $25.00

Philips AVENT Isis iQ Duo Twin Electronic Breast Pump
7.  Philips AVENT Isis iQ Duo Twin Electronic Breast Pump by Philips Avent
The list author says:
  "I haven't tried the Medela electric pumps, but I do have a Medela manual pump and I like the breast shields on the Philips Avent better.  I think the Philips Avent breast pump works quickly and relatively quietly.  The main con here is the number of pieces that need to be disassembled and washed.  It's manageable, but not super desirable."

Medela Harmony Manual Breast Pump
8.  Medela Harmony Manual Breast Pump by Medela
The list author says:
  "This is good to have just because there are very few parts to assemble/disassemble, and is easily portable."
$26.50   Used & New from: $20.00
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (897 customer reviews)

The New Contented Little Baby Book: The Secret to Calm and Confident Parenting
9.  The New Contented Little Baby Book: The Secret to Calm and Confident Parenting by Gina Ford
The list author says:
  "Not everyone loves this book, but if you like predictability and structure, this is a great book to have.  The author gives detailed routines to follow, based on the age of your baby.  What's important to know is that these are not just arbitrary schedules, but that they're based on normal sleeping/feeding patterns in babies."
Used & New from: $0.01

Gerber Brand 6 Pack Prefold Birdseye Organic Diaper, White
11.  Gerber Brand 6 Pack Prefold Birdseye Organic Diaper, White by Gerber
The list author says:
  "These are great for use as burp cloths.  Not as great as the Aden & Anais ones, but much cheaper.  I have 12 of these and still feel like I could use more (there is no way I was going to buy 12 Aden & Anais burp cloths!)."
