Kathie Lee & Hoda: Must-Have Products For Moms
If you are expecting a new bundle of joy, then a lot of the fun is getting all the new baby gear from strollers to diaper bags and binkies. With hundreds of products in the stores, there are just some products that you will never need. Kathie Lee and Hoda were joined by Jessica Hartshorn, Senior Editor for American Baby Magazine, with the must-have products for Moms, including Chicco Cortina Stroller, Dr. Brown’s Bottles and The Boppy Nursing Pillow reviews.
Jessica Hartshorn: Baby Gear You Don’t Need
Jessica said you don’t need crib bumpers, walkers, wipes warmer, doorway jumper and changing table. She said the crib bumpers are banned in certain areas. The walkers don’t give your baby an incentive to walk when they can just roll up to the table and pull everything down. She said the changing table is great to have, but if you are on a budget you can change your baby anywhere and it saves you a couple hundred dollars.
Must-Have Baby Products: Graco SnugRide Car Seat Review
Jessica suggested Graco SnugRide Car Seat for $160-170 from Graco Baby. She said you must have a car seat when leaving the hospital and they did a poll and this is the one Moms love the most.
Must-Have Baby Products: Chicco Cortina Stroller Review
Jessica suggested Chicco Cortina Stroller for $180 from Chicco. She said it is easy to fold and you don’t need some big, expensive stroller. You just need one that works.
Jessica Hartshorn: Summer Infant Review
Jessica suggested Summer Infant SwaddleMe Swaddlers for $13 from Summer Infant. She said this is great and your baby’s feet can go in there and it velcros shut and they don’t startle themselves awake when they are sleeping.
Must-Have Baby Products: Johnson’s Bath Wash Review
Jessica suggested Johnson’s Bath Wash for $4.40. She said your parents probably used this on you. Kathie Lee said it has stood the test of time because it is a great product.
Jessica Hartshorn: Dr. Brown’s Bottles Review
Jessica suggested Dr. Brown’s Bottles for $6 and up from Target. She said it has the edge because it calms the baby down and they don’t get as much air from the bottle.
Must-Have Baby Products: Medela Breast Pump Review
Jessica suggested Medela Breast Pump for $273 from Medela Breast Feeding. She said if you are breastfeeding, don’t skimp on the breast pump. She said it is expensive, but if you are pumping like three times a day for a year, pay the money.
Jessica Hartshorn: The Boppy Nursing Pillow Reviews
Jessica suggested The Boppy Nursing Pillow for $30 from Boppy. She said people don’t even know what it is and then they get it and they live with this thing around the baby’s waist all the time.
Jessica Hartshorn: Skip Hop Diaper Bags Reviews
Jessica suggested Skip Hop Diaper Bags for $58 and up from Skip Hop. She said get a cute one and really sweet and they have changing pads.
