Nighttime Necessities for a New Baby

When we think about putting a nursery together many of us think about the obvious things, crib, changing table, dresser, blankets, paint. The things we forget about are lesser noticed items but still just as important to make sure you have handy.

The big thing that I had to make a midnight run to the store for with my first was a humidifier. It was something I hadn't even considered when buying baby items but now I'm not sure how I missed that detail. I keep a Crane Cool Mist Humidifier in each of our bedrooms because we never know when we're going to need them, oh and they are adorable! Humidifiers are very important, especially here in this Idaho desert. They help my kids by preventing bloody noses, lessening asthma attacks, and having great "smoke" for them to practice blowing during therapy to make their lungs stronger.

The other item that I'm not sure how I lived without is our KinderGlo nightlight. Again, we have tried a few various nightlights but this one is my favorite. The number one reason is because my potty training kids can pick it up and take it with them to the bathroom, thus eliminating the need for lights the whole way down the hall. The KinderGlo is special because it is cool to the touch, rechargeable, and of course, super cute.

What is your nighttime must have? Did you know from the beginning or were you like me and had to figure it out the hard way? Let us know in a comment.


  1. I rock my baby, and she sleeps with her Mr. Bunny

  2. We rock our son to sleep and he loves his Angry birds blanket that he got from his grandmother at Easter. A must is his pacifier! lol

  3. My baby will not sleep without being swaddled, so I have to have plenty on hand.

  4. I loved having the Mozart music to sooth my baby to sleep.
