Baby must haves: The first 2 months #ForBetterBeginnings

Thank you so much to PlaytexBaby ™ for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.


I can’t believe Leighton will be 2 months old next week! Having a newborn in addition to two other children can be difficult.  I am so thankful to have some amazing products to make being a mom easier! 


The first product that has been very helpful these last 2 months is the Playtex Diaper Genie! #Playtexmoms can all agree that this product is a must have in your baby’s nursery!


I can’t believe I did not have a Diaper Genie®  before. I love that it’s super simple to use, it doesn’t leave an odor in the room, and it holds up to 50 newborn diapers in it! I feel like I change 50 a week sometimes!


 The Diaper Genie® opens easily with the use of one hand so you’re able to hold your baby with the other! It also doesn’t take up a ton of space and the colorful Expressions sleeves can match with your nursery’s decor!
 We have L’s next to the dresser where I change her. You can purchase yours at Walmart Amazon, or Target!

With the sleeve

There is a really convenient cutter inside of the genie that cuts the bags for you! You then tie a knot and voila you’re ready to use the next bag. The refills provide barrier technology that lock in germs and protect the area for odors!





I love that there are different sleeve options!

In addition to the amazing diaper genie I had to include these products!


  1. Swaddleme swaddles
  2. Playtex Nurser bottles
  3. Noodle and Boo baby wash
  4. Fisher Price Rock’n Play
  5. LILLEbaby carrier
  6. 4moms bounceRoo
  7. Uppa Vista stroller ( Henry)
  8. Nose Frida
  9. Blooming Bath
  10. Modern Burlap swaddle blankets
  11. Aden + Anais Burp cloths
  12. Boppy


Moms: #ForBetterBeginnings you too can use these products to make your life easier!

    I am a huge fan of diaper genies. I actually have 3. One on my main level and one in each kid’s room. They are great for keeping things fresh and not stinky. 😉

    Umm didn’t know the diaper genie had sleeves to make them less of an eye sore! So cute! This list was spot on!

    Oh that Diaper Genie sleeve is so pretty! I used a similar pail, but it surely didn’t have that cute cover!
