9 Winter Baby Essentials You Need This Month

If you're a new mom, you probably know that life with a newborn can be unpredictable. And part of what plays into that is the weather! Having a newborn during the winter, in particular, can be tough. Dealing with multiple layers, sidewalk snowbanks, and sub-zero temperatures add a whole new challenge to motherhood. And without the right baby essentials you may be struggling to get by. We feel your frustration, mamas! But we've got some great news...we've done all the research for you! We've put together all our favorite baby essentials—everything from sleepers and blankets to our very own four-in-one nursing cover up.

If you're living with a newborn this winter, we've got the best baby products for the first three months (and beyond). Do you have anything to add? And don't forget to check out our post with the best tips for keeping baby warm and toasty when the temperatures drop!

winter baby essentials and nursing covers for new moms

1. The Blueberry Hill Marley Bunny Mohair Knit Bonnet 

This bunny hat has the softest floppy ears—it's beyond adorable and perfect for cold temperatures! Made from delicate mohair yarn that is known for its high-sheen and silk-like feel, it's the baby essential you need this winter.

2. Tubby Todd Extra Tubby Bundle 

These products (and in particular the lotion) are some of our favorite winter baby essentials for ALL of the following reasons:

  • they're 100% natural + organic 
  • they're gluten-free
  • they're dairy free
  • they're certified animal-cruelty free
  • they're 100% natural, and use plant-based fragrances
  • they're made in the u.s.a.
  • they're safe for sensitive skin of all ages
  • they're free of toxins, parabens, sulfates, artificial colors and preservatives, and bpa

3. Saranoni Blanket Eucalyptus Lush Blanket 

This blanket is the perfect combination of soft and subtle, and the perfect weight for keeping babe warm in cozy in her stroller. Even better, it comes in a variety of different sizes, so it's perfect for babies (and children!) of all ages. 

4. Aiden & Anais Classic Swaddle Set 4-Pack

These simple swaddles are a favorite among new parents. Created by a mom, they're made from pre-washed muslin that stays super soft. BONUS: You won't be able to resist the range of pretty patterns. 

5. Loved Baby Velour Footed Sleeper 

This sleeper is so sweet, so soft, and best of all it's made of 100% organic cotton velour, dyes and trims. And you can feel good about your purchase—it's ethically made in India

6. Halo® SleepSack® Easy Transition

These Halo® SleepSack® Easy Transition is perfect for babies who have outgrown swaddling, but still need some security around their arms. This is a great alternative to loose blankets, and perfect over baby's sleeper.  

7. Covered Goods® Nursing Cover, Shopping Cart Cover, Car Seat Cover Cover, and Infinity Scarf

Our very own ORIGINAL 4-in-1 cover was created for moms by a mom—and is one of the best winter baby essentials. Our covers are SO much more than just a breastfeeding cover up—every Covered Goods® can be used as a nursing cover, stretchy car seat cover, shopping cart cover (to keep those icky cold and flu germs at bay), or scarf! You can shop our multi-use nursing cover here...we've got so many fun prints and colors that will take you all the way through winter—whether you're using it as a breastfeeding cover or in some other way!

8. B&Me Fleece Baby Carrier 

This soft coat can be worn three ways: as a regular coat; as a maternity coat; or as a coat to wear over your child in a separate baby carrier. It can be worn in the fall or spring, on warmer winter days or even the coldest winter days with layering.

9. Lou Lou and Company: The Essential Newborn Bundle 

This is the perfect bundle filled with all the essentials you need to welcome your winter baby. It includes a swaddle blanket, newborn mittens, and a newborn to 3 month top hat.
