When I was pregnant with my first baby, I remember walking into the store to start a baby registry and remember feeling so overwhelmed. I was going to be a new mom, yet I knew nothing about babies. Aside from the essentials like a car seat and stroller, I really didn’t know what all my baby and I would need. Fast forward three babies later I’ve come to realize that there are true essential items that you NEED with the rest of the items are just extra. After three babies, I’ve compiled a list of the only 10 things new moms NEED.
I’m partnering with Dreft for this post because baby laundry detergent is definitely an essential! Dreft is the #1 pediatrician recommended baby detergent – and the #1 dermatologist recommended for baby clothes. Dreft is offering a new, limited-edition customizable offering that you can gift to the new mama in your life.
I love the concept behind Dreft by You! You can create a customized bottle with of one of Dreft’s trusted formulas via their website. You choose the design, colors, and create a personalized message to print on the bottle. The package is completed with a matching one piece to welcome the newest little one in their world. It is the perfect gift to deliver yourself or to have delivered to your new mama. I chose the elephant design because I LOVE elephants! I mean look at this onesie – precious!
We’ve been using Dreft ever since my son was born. He was born with very bad eczema and to this day we have to be careful with what touches his skin. Keep reading below for details on Dreft by You.

After three babies I’ve broken down this list to just the essentials. Sure there are other things any mama would love to use to make their lives easier, one thing that comes to mind is a baby rocker, it’s how I was able to take showers most days. haha, but when it comes down to it these are really the only 10 items you need.
