Modern Mom Favorites. One of the first things every pregnant woman does is ask her girlfriends for advice and tips on what she needs to buy for her baby. I’ve asked a number of modern moms to share their must have items with all of you, and to tell you ‘why’ they love these products and services so much.

Things for Mothers
Why do we need so many things as moms? As soon as I found out I was pregnant my house started to fill up with all sorts of random things that the mothers I knew insisted that I needed. With your first child it is easy to get carried away – I am certainly guilty of that! In the end, the only thing a mother needs is an open heart to love her baby (and yes, some diapers too!).
