Essential items for parents and babies:

The amount of baby products on the  market these days can be overwhelming to new parents. Lifestyle Expert Michelle Molison is helping you sift through the mass amount of baby products by highlighting a few essential items for parents and newborns:

Dressed to Deliver - This is the one fashion item every expectant woman needs in her wardrobe! Dressed to Deliver are 3-in-1 gowns that can be worn as a maternity dress, labor and delivery gown, and after the birth of your baby as a nursing gown. Dressed to Deliver offers women more features and uses than uncomfortable, ugly hospital gowns. Sold in a variety of colors in sizes small-3XL. Dressed to Deliver also makes black nursing wraps that go perfectly with the gowns or any outfit.

"Me-Cute" collection - An innovative line that makes parents lives easier! The Wipe Me Cute diaper clutch is the perfect accessory! The front panel holds your preferred brand of baby wipes, along with 2-3 diapers and includes a “parent pocket” to hold keys, cash, and a cell phone. The smooth material wipes clean with a damp cloth! Me-Cute also makes burp cloths and bibs.

Lili's Bebe Pad - This diaper pad will eliminate your little one slipping and sliding all around during changes. Material on the bottom of each pad provides resistance to movement when pressure is applied.  Slip resistant backing, soft comfy changing surface, generously sized to accommodate babies of all sizes. Machine washable and dryer friendly. 

Baby Comfy Nose - Little noses get stuffed up, that's why BabyComfyNose is a great tool for your medicine cabinet. The nasal aspirator is simple to use: insert facial tissue into the body of the aspirator, and slide the soft medical grade tip into the baby’s nose. Then, the caregiver breathes in and it helps release baby’s mucus in seconds. To clean, just put BabyComfyNose into its mesh storage pouch and place in the dishwasher. BabyComfyNose is BPA and Phthalate-free. Sold for about $12 at Walgreens and other locations. BabyComfyNose was recently endorsed by Dr. Sears from the hit TV Show, “The Doctors."
