Newborn Items We Still Use at 15 Months

There is so much STUFF out there for babies. It can be a bit overwhelming when you're pregnant to know what to buy and what not to buy. What do you need? What is a luxury? Here is what we purchased in the beginning that we still use at almost 15 months.

Summer Infant 4-sided Changing pad. This changing pad has been great. I never mounted it to anywhere so that I could move it around the house as needed. I also didn't purchase a cover for it. Since we cloth diaper I have plenty of prefolds and flat diapers around that I lay on the pad. It's easier for me to swap those out when they get dirty.

Bottle drying apparatuses. I have both the Munchkin Deluxe Drying Rack and a Boon Lawn Counter-top Drying Rack. I use both. The Boon Lawn drying rack is always on the counter, while I pull out the Munchkin for back-up if it's been a long time since I've washed her dishes and I have a lot to dry. These have taken us through drying breast pump parts and bottles, to just bottles, and now to her various cups, bowls and spoons. 

Pack 'n Play. I actually just purchased a second Pack n' Play to keep in Connecticut for when I visit my family there. She slept in the Pack n' Play before we transitioned her to her crib. She sleeps in a Pack n' Play whenever we travel and she also plays in one when I take her to work with me.

Wipes dispenser. Buying wipes in bulk is the way to go. When you buy individual containers you're paying extra for plastic and creating more waste. I purchase wipes in bulk from Amazon and I have this OXO wipes dispenser.

Let me also share things that are nice to have, but I don't think are worth purchasing.

Bottle warmer. I'm not saying this isn't worth having, but I used mine so few times that I'm glad I received one second hand from a friend for free. I'd say I only used it for about a month, then I realized BabyCakes was totally fine with cold or room temperature milk.
Shopping cart cover. This came in handy during my new mom germaphobe can't let my baby touch anything phase, but I'm glad I received it as a gift because I think we used it all of three times. 
Which baby products could you not live without?

  1. Omg! Bottle warmer is so not useful. I am on baby #3 so I have a much longer list of things not needed.

    I agree. We actually bought one plastic wipe container and refill that. Or the refill packages go straight into the bag because it takes up less space and I need much more space in my bag.

    Also, a bookbag and not a diaper bag. Easier to throw on your back and just go!

    1. Absolutely agree on bookbag vs. diaper bag. SO much better and easier to handle while baby-wearing.

  3. The least useful thing I ever received was the wipe warmer. I never used it. My parents used the bottle warmer quite a bit. They still used it with my youngest nephew years later. They are convinced that cold or room temperature milk gives babies a bellyache.

    1. Yea, there is definitely a belief in older generations that cold milk gives bellyaches lol.

  4. I am so with you on the bottle warmers being a waste. I cant remember how many times I used it.

    1. Yea, if you really want, you can use a warm cup of water for the same effect.

  5. Great list! I loved my bottle drying rack. We didn't have one at first and when I finally got one I don't know how I did it without it.

  6. My Baby Bullet! I bought it once my youngest little one started solids. He's three now and we still use it to make smoothies!
