3 Baby Products I Said I Would Never Buy (& Now I Can't Live Without Them!)

Monday, June 4, 2018

When I started our baby registry I remember seeing certain items and just thinking, "Who NEEDS this stuff?!" After 10 months of being a mom I can definitely say that my attitude has done a complete 180. I've broken down and bought a few things I deemed ridiculous or swore I would NEVER use on my child. Today I'm sharing all of the items I said I would never buy and now I can't live without them! This post is a long one, so all you moms out there grab that cup of cold coffee and dive right in...

For a while after McKenna was born she was congested and just full of mucus and it was not fun. Of course I used the standard bulb syringe aspirator we got while in the hospital, but that didn't work as well as I hoped. All it took was a really bad cold she had a few months ago, but I finally caved and got a NoseFrida by Fridababy and IT IS THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD! The first time I used it I was amazed at how easy it made the whole mucus removing process. I swear by this thing, so if you're on the fence about adding it to your baby registry or getting one for yourself: JUST DO IT!

This next item is one I caved and used the day after McKenna was born: the pacifier. The only thing that would kind of soothe her and help her pass the car seat test so we could leave the hospital was a pacifier and me holding her hands. To this day these Super Soothie pacifiers are the only ones I've ever used. They really are super at soothing (sorry for the terrible mom joke)! They do disappear a lot (seriously, where do they go?!), so I keep a couple stashed around the house just in case.

After doing my own research I was against using walkers and jumpers for extended periods of time. I stumbled across this Baby Einstein activity jumper while out shopping and it seemed perfect for keeping her busy when we need to get stuff done. I use it almost every morning while I make the two of us breakfast and I love hearing her squeal with happiness as she plays and bounces.

Are there any baby or toddler items you said you would never buy, but now you can't live without them? Let me know in the comments below! I'm always interested to know what products/items other moms stand by!!


  1. Oh, girl. I've long since lost track of everything I swore I'd never own. Lol! I think that goes hand-in-hand with, "Oh, I'll never do (insert disciplinary action here)!". Haha! Great post. If you get around to figuring out where the pacifiers go, hit me up. We seem to have hit a binky wormhole.

  2. We used all three of those too (except different pacifiers). I think I had a lot more products I thought I’d use but didn’t. I definitely didn’t plan to use supply cups for as long as I am. I was all about kids learning to drink from open cup right away. Which they did. But it’s just so messy, so soppy cups it is.

  3. I was the same way with the Nose Frida! Now we have one. hahaha

  4. You have a great blog! I really enjoyed reading this! All of these products are great products!

  5. My son loved his jumper when he was little! It kept him entertain and strengthened his legs so much he was a very early Walker

  6. I just purchased a sit-up chair for my son! I am super curious to see how it goes...

  7. I don’t think I could stomach doing the NoseFrida but I guess you do whatever you need to to make that baby happy. Good job mama

  8. I was anti pacifier, until I became a mom of two. Those things really came in handy when both children wanted to be held at the same time lol.

  9. We had the activity jumper. These all sound like great products.
