Why You’ll Want It: Having a bassinet by your bed is the safest way for you and baby to be close during sleeping hours. The AAP recommends keeping your baby in your room, on their own sleeping surface — not in your bed — for the first year.

\"Dream SHOP Dream On Me Bassinet

Investment: SHOP Dream On Me Bassinet // $374.99

Crib with Optional Conversion Set

Why You’ll Want It: While you may not be thinking past those first few months right now, your tiny baby will be transitioning into a toddler bed in no time. Choose a crib that will stand the test of time like a 3-in-1 crib that can transition into a toddler bed.

Our Picks:
Budget: Delta Children Heartland Crib // $149.99

\"Baby SHOP Delta Children Heartland Crib

Investment: Babyletto 3 in 1 Crib // $499

Firm Crib Mattresses

Why You’ll Want It: When choosing your child’s crib mattress, you want to make sure it is quite firm — more firm than you would want for an adult mattress. Don’t go hand-me-down on this necessity; safety is paramount so look for a certified sleep product.

Our Picks:
Budget: Dream On Me Crib Mattress // $50.52

\"Crib SHOP Dream On Me Mattress

Investment: Naturepedic Breathable Organic Crib Mattress // $379

\"Naturpedic SHOP Naturpedic Mattress

Crib Mattress Protectors

Why You’ll Want It: Investing in a crib mattress protector will help with longevity of your mattress because, as we know, babies are always leaking something. A mattress protector is also a nice way to make the crib a little cozier for your baby without adding unsafe blankets or cushions.

Our Picks:
Budget: Bamboo Protector Pad // $19.99

\"MattressProtector\" SHOP Mattress Protector

Investment: Wool, Washable Mattress Protector // $76.50

\"Wool SHOP Wool Mattress Protector

Crib Sheets

Why You’ll Want It: A tight-fitting sheet that secures to your crib mattress is a must; so make sure you find the right fit if you have a custom size crib. There’s endless choices when it comes to fashion and fabric, but we prefer something soft and breathable for a good night’s sleep.

Our Picks:

Budget: Jersey Organic Cotton Crib Sheet // $26.95

\"Jersey SHOP Jersey Crib Fitted Sheets

Investment: Organic Cotton Fitted Crib Sheets  // $36.99

\"Organic SHOPT Organic Cotton Fitted Sheets

Swaddle Blankets

Why You Want It: For the first 8 weeks (or until they start to roll), your baby will enjoy being swaddled tightly during sleep. This helps them feel secure and safe and mimics the warm snuggly feeling of being in the womb.

Our Picks:

Budget: Muslin Swaddle 4-pack // $22.99

\"Muslin SHOP Muslin Blankets Pack

Investment: Organic Muslin 3-pack // $34.90

\"Organic SHOP Muslin Blanket Pack

Sleep Sacks

Why You’ll Want It: Transition your baby from a swaddle to a sleep sack when they show signs of rolling. Blankets in the crib are a no-no when it comes to baby safety, since they increase the risk of suffocation. Sleep sacks, which are basically wearable blankets with arm holes, are a great substitute and not just in the colder months; many babies identify their sleep sack as a signal that it’s time to go to sleep..

Our Picks:
Budget: Muslin Sleep Sack // $16.72

\"Sleep SHOP Muslin Sleep Sack

Investment: Woolino 4-Season Sleep Sack // $99.99

\"Woolino SHOP Woolino Sleep Sack


Why You’ll Want It: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a pacifier as a SIDS preventative, because it keeps your child’s airway open. While there’s no such thing as “bad habits” during those first few newborn months, you may want to pull the pacifier if you find your baby is associating it with sleep (and waking you constantly to find it).

Our Picks:
Budget: Avent Soothie Pacifier 2-pack // $3.69

\"Baby SHOP Avent Pacifier

Investment: FRIGG Silicone Baby Pacifier // $14.99

\"Silicone SHOP Silicone Pacifier


Why You’ll Want It: To help keep your baby in the “sleep zone” while facilitating overnight feeds or diaper changes, we recommend using a dim nightlight, in a red or orange hue. Stay away from blue or white light which is more disruptive to sleep.

Our Picks:
Budget: JollyWell Night Light // $21.99

\"JollyWell SHOP JollyWell Night Light

Investment: Hatch Restore // $89.00

\"Hatch SHOP Hatch Restore

Video Baby Monitor

Why You’ll Want It: Functions on baby monitors run the gamut from those that simply show a digital image to more intricate versions that promise to monitor your baby’s breathing. You can go either way, but we do suggest a video monitor for safety and peace of mind.

Our Picks:

Budget: Motorola Digital Video Monitor // $36.50

\"Motorola SHOP Motorola Video Monitor

Investment: The Nanit Plus Smart Baby Monitor // $379.99

\"The SHOT The Nanit Smart Baby Monitor

Overnight Diapers

\"Luv SHOP Luv Diapers

Investment: Honest Overnight Diapers // $25.99 per 60
