As a new mom still in the thick of newborn-ness, Jaime King has strong opinions about which baby items are really worth having.

And she’s more than willing to share her recommendations with others.

“I wish there had been a site like Cricket’s Circle when I was pregnant! I’m a minimalist, we don’t like to have a lot of stuff or junk or waste,” she said.

“Doesn’t matter what it costs, but does it work for you, your life and your child. I went through so many things out there and this is what I realize really works.

Recently, King revealed her favorites with the cool online mommy resource and we’re sharing a few with you. Check them out below.

Babyhome So-Ro Wooden Cradle GiveawaySpantman Photography

Designed by a reputed occupational therapist, Babyhome‘s sleek and modern wooden cradle from so-ro rocks front-to-back (just like in the womb) instead of side-to-side providing a more soothing motion for babies.

Available in single ($400) and double ($600) versions, the head of the cradle features three levels of elevation to help maintain a clear, unobstructed and relaxing environment for your little one. It also promotes healthy breathing, especially for infants with colds or nasal congestion.

Made with plywood Baltic birch (in either walnut brown or white), the well-crafted sleeping space (it also comes with a mattress and sheet) has won many design awards.

With all that in mind, it’s easy to understand why it has so many celeb mom fans including Ali Landry (left).

We Tried It: Svan Baby-to-Booster Bentwood High Chair

Who tried it: Rennie Dyball, Senior Editor

Why she did it: Feeding her baby in a Bumbo seat wasn’t cutting it anymore and it was time to graduate to a real high chair.

Pros: This attractive high chair with an easy on/off tray and a fold for storage comes in three different color combinations, including a nice neutral espresso/almond combo that doesn’t scream “baby gear in the kitchen!” (The natural/lime and white/tangerine are still attractive, but more eye-catching.)
