A Comprehensive List of My Favourite Baby Items

I get so many questions on what my favourite baby items are, from strollers to car seats, to breast pumps, etc. So, I decided rather than answering everything one at a time that I would lay it ALL out in one comprehensive list!

These are the basic baby items that I’ve grown to love over the last two years. They are items that we have used and currently have in our home. I would buy any of these items for a friend because I love them all so much!

Actually, while we are on the topic of strollers … before Annie was born we ended up grabbing the Bugaboo DONKEY2 which is amazing for two kids as it doubles as a side by side stroller for both your baby AND your toddler!! This is particularly handy when I want to get outside for some fresh air with the kids … and our third child, Nacho. LOL!

Alright, without further adieu, here is a list of my favourite tried, tested and true baby items!

    I just wondered if you ever used a sound machine for Leo or now with Annie. They are extremely handy when napping your baby at someone else’s house (portable ones) and having one in both Leo and Annie’s room (plug in type). Many sleep consultants says they are a must. Just windering

  2. Jillian

    October 19th, 2018 at 12:44 pm

    Yes!!! We use a noise machine 🙂 XO

    October 18th, 2018 at 10:57 am

    Ah, I’ve been thinking lately that I wish I had a list of the baby stuff you use/post about. I’m 16 weeks pregnant and just starting to think of what I will need. This will be so helpful! Thank you thank you!!

  4. Hillary

    October 18th, 2018 at 10:59 am

    Not a Mama yet, but this list was fun to read. We often give OVer Co. products for baby gifts. We love to support local parents who founded the company due to the need of protecting their baby after spending time in the NICU. They have come such a long way. Now to save this blog post for when we have babies.

    I’ve never used it but if we get pregnant again, I’m totally purchasing a bbhugme pregnancy pillow and nursing pillow!!! They look so comfortable and pretty.

    I love the moses basket and stand that you have, could you let us (me) know what brand that is? Thanks so much! I just moved to the Okanagan and have used a lot of your recommendations–thanks for making so many local ones and being a great ambassador for the area!

  7. Jillian

    October 19th, 2018 at 12:43 pm

    I ordered it online. The brand is Design Dua. XOXO

    Hi Jillian,

    I just wanted to say thank you! I had my second baby the day before you had Annie. I have a 4 1/2 year old (Allie) and our newest baby girl (Ada). I look forward to your insta stories daily. Listening to your tips and tricks have been almost therapeutic for me, and some of the products you’ve shared I’ve purchased and love! So, thank you for sharing! Ashley 🙂

    I heard about the hipp organic baby formula and I was wondering what you thought about it. Reviews of this product looks really good. Here you say you use earth’s best, so I was wondering if you’ve tried the hipp brand also?

  10. Claire

    October 18th, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    I looked at the stroller and I can only find one colour while yours is 2 colours which I love ❤️ ?

  11. Kelsey

    October 18th, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    Hi Jillian, just wondering what the black and white shapes pack is called. It folds out and has a mirror? Thanks!

  12. L

    October 18th, 2018 at 5:27 pm

    You also mentioned the Haakaa breast pump in an earlier Instastory. Is it a replacement for the Avent? I hated the massage two pump with the plugs and bag. It was horrible.

  13. Jillian

    October 19th, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    I just tried the Haakaa yesterdau for the first time and am LOVING it!!!

  14. Kelly

    October 23rd, 2018 at 8:18 am

    Are all Haaka’s created equal…i have seen a few different ones and curious which one you use? Thanks!

  15. Chelsea

    October 18th, 2018 at 6:09 pm

    Love the ergo 360 carrier!!

  16. Jennifer

    October 18th, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    Do you use a white noise machine?

  17. Jillian

    October 19th, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    Yes I do!

  18. Laura

    October 18th, 2018 at 6:33 pm

    Do you use any bands or bloomers for post partum support? I’d be interested in a post on how you take care of YOU in those first few weeks!

  19. Jillian

    October 19th, 2018 at 12:41 pm

    I haven’t tried those but will do my best to pull something together! I did a similar blog here

  20. Sonia

    October 18th, 2018 at 9:15 pm

    What’s the little pillow you have Annie laying in on the coffee table in one of your posts?

  21. Jillian

  25. Jane

    October 19th, 2018 at 5:31 pm

    Great post. We are huge fans of the Mimos Pillow for preventing baby flat head syndrome. Also LOVE weleda baby calendula cream.

    I love Au fait mama nursing t shirts and tanks…they are made in Vancouver! And the Fisher Price rock and play basinet….only thing my little guy would nap in and the Fisher Price snug a bunny swing!!…only thing my daughter would nap in and handy when you need to make dinner and babe is fussy!

  28. Amanda

    October 22nd, 2018 at 8:29 am

    Can you please suggest which lactation tea you find works best? I’m a first time momma with a 3 month old boy, and struggling to keep my milk supply up!
    Thank you!

  29. Sherry

    October 22nd, 2018 at 9:05 am

    You mentioned a pump you use when you are feeding to catch the letdown. Can you share what that is?? Your babies are adorable and you seem to be adjusting to two with such a relaxed vibe (at least that how it comes across on insta). I’m expecting baby #2 and they will be 20 months apart so I’m aspire to a more relaxed feel with the second one than I did with the first!! ??

  30. Jillian Harris

    October 23rd, 2018 at 11:11 am

    It’s the Haaka!!! XOXO

  31. Susie

    October 23rd, 2018 at 1:46 am

    Love this post! We are preparing for a 2nd baby at the end of November and we are stuck between getting a Bugaboo Donkey2 or an UPPAbaby Vista. I’m leaning towards the Donkey2 but our biggest concern is will it be too wide for everyday use? What’s your experience with it? I love how they are side by side! Would love to hear your thoughts.

  32. Sharon Buchanan

    October 25th, 2018 at 10:52 am

    im wondering where U bought those sweet little boots U had on Annie in one of your posts

  33. Becca

    October 25th, 2018 at 11:04 am

    I am wondering what that new baby subscription box was that you mentioned a while back. It may have come with that black&white shapes kit for Annie.

    Ps. For your haakaa and hot wheels car issue… you should try one of those flower plugs for the haaka 🙂

  34. Angelika

    October 25th, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Love these suggestions!! I’ve been searching the blog/your insta for the brand of soother you’re using with Annie! I know you mentioned it in a story but I never wrote it down! TY Xo

  35. Keara Boisjolie

    October 26th, 2018 at 8:56 am

    I love watching all your stories as I am a new mom! My baby girl, Gianna, was born on 9-19! I am desperately searching for the black and white stimulation cards/mat that Annie has! I can’t seem to find anything online which is shocking to me! Where is yours from?

  36. Kristina

    October 27th, 2018 at 2:36 pm

    I’m curious to know the oval pillow you lay Annie in your Instagram Posts. I’ve been searching online and can’t seem to find it. If you can recommend that would be amazing ?

  37. Jillian Harris

    October 29th, 2018 at 9:30 am

    It’s Doc-a-Tot!!! XOXO

  38. Lena

    November 1st, 2018 at 9:03 pm

    Love this list!
    What Canadian made brands would you recommend that use bamboo for baby clothes, specifically pants and onesies?

  39. Haley-Rae

    November 3rd, 2018 at 3:28 pm

    Hi Jillian! Just wondering which car seat you like best for Leo? My daughter will outgrow her infant car seat soon so I have started looking into into the next step!

  40. Cassie

    November 5th, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    I know you like the manual breat pump but on a recent Instagram post you talked about other type that you liked and I think it start with an H? What was this brand?

  41. Jillian Harris

    November 6th, 2018 at 8:39 am

  45. Diana

    November 17th, 2018 at 6:57 am

    Thank you for sharing this list! I was curious as to which convertible car seat you use for Leo? Our baby girl is outgrowing her car seat and looking to make the switch! Thank you!

  46. Kay

    November 20th, 2018 at 7:20 am

    Thanks for this!
    Wondering what was the name of the baby journal you were sent to document the first year of the baby’s life? It was a beautiful book

  49. Amanda

    December 16th, 2018 at 6:55 am

    In your insta stories you have a amazing activity mat for Annie. Has lots of colors and shapes. Just wondering what brand it is?

  50. Rebecca

    December 21st, 2018 at 7:10 pm

    I’m trying to find which pacifier you use for Annie! I see them in your posts all the time but can’t seems to find the brand!

  55. Tori

    January 23rd, 2019 at 1:25 pm

    Where is this pink tunic/dress from that you are wearing in the photos with Annie and I think you were wearing it in your video of Annie’s birth

  56. Jillian

  57. Andrea Zinck

    February 5th, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    Hi Jillian

    Are you still using the Nest Cam as your baby monitor? I’ve noticed in the last 2 weeks it looses the video feed after about 30mins, and I need to launch the app again on my iPhone. Not the most ideal situation at night once I go to sleep. Just curious if you’re experiencing the same thing. It never used to to this and I’ve been using mine for 2 years as a baby monitor. If you are maybe you can reach out to Nest?


  58. Jillian Harris

    February 12th, 2019 at 9:10 am

    Hi Andrea!! No, I haven’t had the same issue!! Mine seems to be working great!! xo

  59. Crissy

    March 19th, 2019 at 7:09 am

    I believe you had the MamaRoo with Leo and now have the Nuna Leaf Curve with Annie, would you recommend the Nuna Leaf? Trying to decide between the two… thanks!

  60. Jillian Harris

    March 20th, 2019 at 8:15 am

    I LOVE the Nuna leaf!!!! xoxo

    Hi! Was just wondering, where is the black and white visual stimulation baby mat from that Justin loves and swears by? I thought it would be listed here but I didn’t see it.

  62. Jolene Ejmont

    June 23rd, 2019 at 7:15 am

    I love baby stuff 🙂 Isn’t it so much fun that so many companies make such beautiful and such incredibly helpful products! I know they usually cost an arm and a leg, but grateful none the less. Love the items you picked, but mostly loving your gorgeous photos!
