This Is Us actress Alexandra Breckenridge just might be most relatable celebrity mom ever. “I just don’t wash my hair anymore. I do it about every 10 days,” the 35-year-old recently admitted to Us Weekly. “My colorist said that I’ve trained my scalp to not get greasy because I never wash it.”

But Breckenridge, who plays Kevin Pearson’s (Justin Hartley) love interest Sophie on the hit NBC drama, isn’t complaining: It means she has more time with her son Jack, 15 months. “When you have children. It just changes what’s important to you,” she told Us. “Trying to find time to keep up with my hair or my nails, they take me away from Jack. So I tend to put those things off.”

Soon The Walking Dead alum will have even less time for herself: She and guitarist husband Casey Hooper are due to welcome a baby girl in four weeks. But here are three products that make the pregnant star’s life easier.

Baby Brezza Formula Pro

($179.99, buybuybaby.com)

“This is basically like a Keurig machine for formula,” Breckenridge explained. “The water is at the exact temperature you need it to be when you make a bottle. Best thing that’s ever happened”

Doona Car Seat Burgundy

Doona Car Seat Stroller

With a press of a button, this car seat transforms into a stroller. Another perk: The cutting-edge travel system that Breckenridge calls “amazing” meets FAA standards, so you can bring it on a plane and place it in the overhead compartment.

Breckenridge looks forward to monthly delivers form this non-toxic, green beauty subscription box. The mom’s favorite product so far: Aloha Youth Serum, a blend of Hawaiian botanicals that keeps her skin soft and hydrated.
