Baby Gear Checklist: Soothe, Play & Travel with Baby

Your precious bundle of joy will soon be here! Follow our baby gear essentials checklist to ensure you have everything you and baby will need before their arrival. These items are perfect for adding to your registry, too!

  • Baby Swings: The gentle motion of baby swings, rockers or soothing chairs helps to soothe baby to sleep. They also allow you to keep baby close by while you attend to other tasks.
  • Bouncers & Jumpers: Keep your curious little one entertained, active and within sight with portable baby bouncer or jumper that lights up and plays music as baby kicks and jumps.
  • Playpens & Play Yards: For practical moms, a playpen is a versatile place for baby to play or nap. As you move from room to room throughout the day, it's easy to roll this baby essential along with you, so your little one is never out of sight.
  • Baby Carriers - It's difficult to say who will love your baby carrier more: you or baby. Strollers and cars seats provide mobility, but nothing matches the soothing warmth of a baby carrier. It lets you cuddle baby while keeping both hands free to perform tasks at home, or navigate through crowded stores.

Other items you’ll want to consider are high chairs & boosterspacifiers, and gyms & play mats.

Preparing ahead of time will ensure that you’re focused on making your newborn comfortable rather than worrying about whether or not you have all the fabulous baby gear essentials.
