What to Buy & When!


When do I need a car seat? 

Should I wait until they’re born to get bigger sized clothes?

What do I need to bottle feed or pump?

It can be hard to navigate what you need to purchase BEFORE baby is born, and what can wait until they’re a few months old! It’s the worst when you buy a ton of things that you end up not even using, or when you wait to get something you end up really needing during a middle-of-the-night feed!

Download the checklist below – we’re breaking it down for you so you know what you need to purchase – before baby and then by month after they’re born!

Hi there!

I’m Dr. Mona, I’m a Board Certified Pediatrician and a mom.

When new moms come to see me in my medical practice, they tend to have the same questions.

And the same worries.

How do I help my baby sleep at night? Do I have to help them?

I don’t know if I should breast or bottle feed? Or both?

Is my baby gaining enough weight/sleeping enough/hitting the milestones?

When I became a mom to my son Ryaan in 2019, I experienced first-hand all the things us new moms worry about.

And it changed me as a doctor. 

Now I know that the real question all new moms have is:

How do I know if I’m making the right decisions for my baby?


That’s why it’s my mission to share balanced, well-researched parenting advice –

to lessen those big worries and help moms find more joy in motherhood.
