The Fab Mom's Guide on the Items You Need for a New Baby

OK, so I know its been a loooong time since I've blogged, but I have a good excuse:

The Fab Mom's Guide on the Items You Need for a New Baby

The #FabFam has grown by one. My little angel, Grayson August, was born on December 11th at 12:31 pm (10 days early!) at 7 pounds, 2 ounces, and 20 inches in length. He is the most incredible thing, and is growing and developing a little personality so quickly.

Needless to say, he has kept me pretty busy. I am lucky to squeeze out time for a shower or to check email, let alone blog this past month. However, I wanted to take some time to do a Friday Faves post this week to not only announce the little guy's arrival, but also highlight a few of my favorite items for these newborn days that I have experienced over the past month. These are the things that I have found to be the most useful for this first month of my son's life, absolute must-have items for a newborn. Whether you are a first-time mom or going for your second, third, or fourth baby, consider this your guide of tried-and-true essential products for a new baby.

As my mother said, this thing is worth it's weight in gold. The baby naps in it, gets changed in it, we can move it around the house so that he is near us when resting and we are doing things, and it even plays music and sounds to soothe a new baby.
