Living in the city (on the 3rd floor of a 3rd story walk up, yeah…) has taught me to depend on products that can help make being a mom easier. Up until I was well into my pregnancy, I had no idea that Nordstrom’s baby department was filled with all of the brands that I was researching for Charlie’s arrival. Here is a list of our favorites…

Nuna PIPA Car Seat: We love this car seat because it is under 8 pounds, has sun shields and is super easy to install into the car. It is the perfect size to carry down 3 flights of stairs (ugh) and down the block to our car, keeps Charlie feeling safe and warm and comes in a variety of colors.

NUNA IVVI Stroller: We LOVE this stroller! It is compatible with our car seat, has all-terrain tires, a seat that can recline to a bassinet and sit forward or backwards and a ton of storage below. Dave and I love to take Webster on the trails that line the lakefront and these tires make it easy to go from gravel to cement to grass to sand, etc. I love that it is sleek and stylish, too. We also use this Skip Hop Stroller Organizer.

Petunia Pickle Bottom Diaper Bag: My favorite part of this diaper bag is that it has a compartment that folds out into a portable changing pad, making it easy to change your little one anywhere. It has a ton of pockets for all of your stuff and it can also be a backpack!

Motorola Digital Baby Monitor: I love that I am able to see Charlie all night long but there is also an option to turn off the video and just have the sound, or turn off the sound completely. Basically everything you want and need in a baby monitor! Plus, there is an app that syncs with your phone so when you’re away you can spy on your husband watching your baby (just kidding, I don’t do that…). You can also speak through the monitor, which I’ll use to tell Charlie to go to sleep when he is a little older.

ERGO Baby Carrier: When the weather was warmer and when we are on vacation, we use this a ton! I also use it when I have to get work done but Charlie wants to be held – it’s a great way to do both! I’ve tried other carriers that tend to give me a lot of back pain but this style is comfortable and gives me a ton of support.

4moms Infant Tub: Charlie loves this bathtub because it is comfortable but we love it because it measures the water temperature and beeps if it is too hot or too cold for baby.

aden + anis Easy Swaddle: We used this before we transitioned to the sleep suit but I loved these swaddles. They are breathable, snug and stay in place with the snaps.

Little Giraffe Blanket: Charlie has a plethora of cozy blankets but this one is by far his favorites. When I wrap him in it before his naps he rubs his face all over the soft fibers and falls asleep in seconds – I’m already envisioning this being a favorite of his for a long time.

Mustela Facial Cleansing Cloths: I know it seems silly but these are amazing. Charlie tends to smell like spit up – a lot – and the scent of these is out of this world.

Skip Hop Activity Gym: This activity gym has been a huge help with the dreaded tummy time. Charlie is not a fan but this mat is so colorful and comes with a little pillow that makes it easy to prop him on his stomach so he can stare at all of the colors.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could do your baby registry at Nordstrom? A girl can dream!
