What are Your New Baby Must Haves (for mom too)?

photoBaby #4 will be here in just a few weeks, and although my youngest is only 2, I feel like I have baby amnesia when it comes to the stuff I need. I'm taking a basic approach this time around, pretty much just onesies and diapers (how cute are these new cherry print ones from the Honest Company at Target?!). I have a bunch of Levy's old baby clothes and Jack's baby gear so I think we are good to go for the most part, but I wanted to know, what are your must haves when it comes to getting ready for a new baby? I'm talking about those lesser known essentials, maybe it was a favorite nursing tea or a sweet swaddle blanket. What about some essentials for mom too? Was there anything special that helped you get into the new motherhood groove? Below are a few of my favorites for new mommyhood, I LOVE the Natural Calm powder, it really helped me smooth out any of the slightly more jagged edges of hormonal change craziness paired with sleep deprivation (find it at Healthy Living Market and Cafe, they also have little sample packets for under a buck so you can try it before you buy a big container of it). A cute nursing bra also helps boost your new mom spirits, and this one by Boob (great name, right?) is so comfortable and also so cute. Finally, a little bronzer can go a long way when you're feeling more zombie milkmaid and less bright eyed and bushy tailed. This Shimmer Brick by Bobbi Brown is sort of miraculous.

***the photo at the top is of our family's little Petit Bateau onesie, a gift from my mother, that all three kids have come home from the hospital in so far, and I can't wait to bring #4 home in it too! It has a sweet little cloud print and says "Head in the clouds" in French across the front...***
