Actress Blake Lively is no novice when it comes to navigating life with a newborn.

Lively and her Hollywood husband, Ryan Reynolds, reportedly welcomed their third child around two months ago - and already have two young girls together, James, four, and Ines, three.

Anyone who's been through the first-time expectant parent experience will tell you just how difficult it is wading through the vast array of baby items that are on offer. Which ones do we really need? Which brand? Help! 

While the celebrity couple are notoriously private about their young family, fortunately, 32-year-old Lively has just revealed her must-have, tried-and-true baby items on Amazon - along with some honest new mama insight and advice.

"I understand how overwhelming it is to be a new parent," she muses on the product guide. "What they don't tell you is it never gets less overwhelming, but with each kid I do learn more."

"Before I had my first, I was lucky enough to have the parents in my life who I trusted most share their 'must haves' with me. I hope to do the same for you with my baby registry picks. Good luck! You're gonna' need it."

Blake also highlighted the importance of self-care for new mums. 

"It's easier to take care of everyone else instead of ourselves," she writes. "But it all starts with us mamas."

Lively's list includes everything from nursery must-haves, sustainable on-the-go essentials and items for mum.

"I always hope to find items that are good for my babies and are also kind to the environment." she told People. Here are a few of our top picks:

  • HALO Swivel Sleeper Bassinet 
  • Phillips Starry Night Monitor and Projector
  • Baby Jogger City Mini Double Stroller
  • Britax Back Seat Mirror
  • Boon Bundle Feeding Set 
  • My Breast Friend Deluxe Nursing Pillow
