Hunter McGrady Shares Her Baby Essentials

The SI Swimsuit model is an open book when it comes to motherhood.

Since giving birth to her son Hudson in June, Hunter McGrady has been sharing her motherhood journey. She's opened up about the challenges she's faced and has shared the adorable highlights, too. And while fans love hearing about it all, new and expecting moms have been clamoring to know what products the SI Swimsuit model was using with her little one. Here are McGradys newborn essentials.

For Sleeping

Sleep can be a rarity for new parents, but it's always important to have the right gear to help the little one get some quality zzzs. To do that, the 28-year-old influencer uses the Baby Delight Beside Me Wink Bassinet & Bedside Sleeper to have easy access to Hudson at night. And to make swaddling a cinch, she relies on the Love To Dream Swaddle while the Hatch Rest+ Baby Sound Machine ensures there's no outside noises disrupting the baby's sleep cycle. Finally, McGrady depends on the Owlet, a baby monitor with a sock that monitors the baby's heart rate and oxygen levels for mom's peace of mind.

If you scroll through McGrady's Instagram, you'll quickly notice that her baby is one of the best-dressed tots around. Where does she get these adorable duds? Some of the podcast host's favorites are basics from eco-friendly line Bamboo Little, cute printed onesies from Baby Gap, zip-up footies from Posh Peanut, two-piece sets from Modern Mini Boutique, sweaters from Zara Kids, and various small-batch drop items from Junie Grey Bébé.

For Soothing and Playing

Although there are plenty of new baby products on the market, the classics still work for soothing a cranky baby. Take a pacifier, for example. McGrady uses BIBS Baby Pacifier for Hudson and loves that its BPA-Free with natural rubber. And to keep up with developmental milestones, she loves Montessori Newborn Kit by Monti Kid. "In addition to the kit, parents receive access to six weeks of parenting tips along with developmental activities," she raved in an Instagram post.

For Feeding

A full baby is a happy baby. So McGrady turns to the Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced Formula Dispenser Machine that automatically mixes and warms formula bottles instantly. As far as bottles, she loves Dr. Brown's Options+ Slow Flow Bottle Set. Plus, breastfeeding is easier now, thanks to the Willow Pump Wearable Breast Pump. Now McGrady can pump while on the go.

So, if you’re pregnant or just had a baby, McGrady has you covered with everything you need to know. And best of all, you know her advice is authentic as she’s been extremely open throughout her postpartum process.
