Favorite Newborn & Baby Items of 2024


A few weeks ago I put out a question on Instagram asking moms what their favorite baby items were. I have my own favorites, but my youngest, CeCe, is now two years ago, so I wasn’t sure if I was up-to-date on the latest and greatest baby things!

I had a lot of responses, and although there was quite a variety (every baby is different, after all!), there were a few items that were repeated the most. Those items are listed below, along with all the benefits of why people love them!

Uppababy Vista Stroller

The Uppababy stroller is simply amazing! I have and still use the Uppababy with my THREE children (ages 2-6). Not only is the Uppababy sleek and aesthetically-pleasing for a stroller (which matters, people!), it is incredibly functional, has ample storage space, and grows as your children grow. We upgraded to the Uppababy stroller when we had my second child, and we haven’t looked back. The Mesa carseat fits in the Uppababy, and we mainly used that when my youngest was a newborn, but there is also the beautiful bassinet option.

I can throw multiple bags underneath the stroller, and as moms, storage is huge! I don’t need to try to squeeze anything down there, which, believe it or not, does make a difference with ease.

The stroller is incredibly adaptable. As I mentioned, I still use it now with my three kids. When we had my third, we got the Piggyback ride-along board, so now my two older kids will hop on there while my youngest still sits in the seat. You can have two toddler seats and the ride-along board, but my kids like the versatility of hopping on and off, so we just keep the one seat on the stroller now.

Baby Bjorn Bouncer

The Baby Bjorn Bouncer was mentioned by a lot of moms, and I also loved using the Baby Bjorn! Again, I love how aesthetically-pleasing it is! But looks aside, babies love this bouncer, and it doesn’t take up a lot of space. The Baby Bjorn Bouncer is super lightweight, so it’s easy to move around. You can also fold it up and store it easily.

Tubby Todd Products (all!)

So many moms love Tubby Todd! Tubby Todd makes baby products for practically everything – they have shampoo, body wash, diaper rash ointment, and body lotion. Made up of plant-based ingredients, Tubby Todd products are hypoallergenic and free of parabens, dairy, and gluten. The lavender rosemary lotion also smells great!

Lovevery Play Gym Mat

The Lovevery Play Gym has 5 Montessori-inspired development zones and has removable toys such as an organic ball and teether, sustainable wood batting toy, and 4 interchangeable learning card sets. Lovevery uses organic materials that are made ethically and is perfect for tummy time, baby laying on back, on their side, or even sitting up! The Lovevery mat is also easy to store, a HUGE bonus for playmats.

Artipoppe Carrier

I have been swooning over the Artipoppe carrier since I had my second. They are so gorgeous, offering a variety of colors and patterns (the swan one is my favorite!). I have heard they are extremely comfortable and worth the price (they start at $370). I almost got one for CeCe, but if I ever had a fourth, I would splurge on an Artipoppe.
