Don't forget burp cloths for those inevitable messes. My fave burp cloths linked here- https://amzn.to/47NXsLX Bottles here- https://amzn.to/41cNzFn

  A reliable stroller is a game-changer for parents on the go. Look for one that fits your lifestyle, whether it's a lightweight umbrella stroller for easy maneuvering or a robust travel system that includes a car seat.

3. **Car Seat:**

  Safety is paramount when it comes to transporting your baby. Select a car seat that complies with safety regulations and can be easily installed in your vehicle. Many modern car seats can also be part of a travel system, seamlessly transitioning from car to stroller. Fave is here- https://amzn.to/4abzHiF
