How does a busy mom like Jen Schefft keep it together?
Turns out, with a carefully curated supply of gear. After introducing her daughter Mae, born on November 13, in the new issue of Us Weekly (out now), the new mother shared her list of must-have items with UsMagazine.com.
Although she has an arsenal of everything from bottles to cradles, her most favorite part of motherhood is Mae herself.
"I knew I would love her this much but I didn't really know how that felt until she actually got here," Schefft told Us.
Here, Schefft reveals her "can't live without" items:
-- Schefft feeds Mae Enfamil Premium Newborn Formula, which provides 400 IU of vitamin D in 27 fl oz to help build bones, support the immune system and maintain healthy blood levels.
-- Mae enjoys some down time in her Fisher Price My Little Lamb Cradle-n-Swing, which plays music, moves in a variety of motions, and has a built-in mobile.
-- She may be less than a year old, but that doesn't mean Mae is too young to hit the gym -- the Baby Einstein Play Gym, that is. The mat and canopy features toys and music to keep the tot entertained.
-- The Boppy Cradle doesn't just hold baby Mae, it grows with her, too. The reclined seat is perfect for newborns, then, as she grows, the chair is moved into the inclined bouncing position.
-- To stay organized and stylish, Schefft depends on the Baby Kaed diaper bags. (They even make bags for dads, too!)
-- Mae cruises around town in her Walkabye Urban Buggy. The strollers have adjustable handles, durable wheels and interchangeable bassinets.
-- The innovative Dr. Brown's baby bottles feature a unique internal vent system that helps maintain vitamin levels in the formula and reduces colic, spit-up and burping.
-- Schefft keeps Mae under wraps with the hypo-allergenic Pampers Sensitive Swaddlers Diapers.
