This is a page I was super excited to craft. Guns are great but so are our kids! And after having two of them, I feel pretty well equipped to make recommendations for moms and their babies and young children.
These are the things I’m most thankful for, or things that I wished I had with my first. Trying to include things you might not think of, rather than imitating all of the other registries and mom groups out there.

These are some things that nobody told me about my first time around, that I’d really wished I had. Making recovery easier on yourself is the best thing you can do when trying to handle a new baby and the trauma of the delivery process. Do yourself a favor, get all the weird things, you will use them, and you will thank me.
Probably the area I needed the most help in, product-wise. Breastfeeding is HARD! It hurts, it can be complicated depending on the baby, and there is a lot of stuff that you can get that will make things easier for everybody involved. Here are my life-saving items, including things I purchased along my breastfeeding journeys that ended up making a world of difference. My biggest piece of advice – be prepared with all of it before you encounter a problem! You’ll wish you had what you need, when you need it.
For baby boys who are circumcised, it’s super helpful to have tons of gauze and vaseline. You will use this at every diaper change for the first month at least.
