So far, in my first few days of being a mother, I have found my first "couldn't live without" product. The AlwaysClean Pacifier by BebeSounds. The pacifier will automatically close if the baby drops it our of his or her mouth, or if momma accidentally drops it. This protects the pacifier nipple from getting dirty and unsanitary for baby which helps save mommy some time.
This pacifier also locks shut for easy travel. The handle comes down and snaps onto the sides of the closed pacifier. It is SO easy to just throw it in your purse or diaper bag and it is ready to use when arriving at your destination, no cleaning necessary.
I found it for $3.99 at Motherhood Maternity.
