As a newly minted mom of two, Jaime King knows all about stocking up on early-stage essentials for her growing family.

And now the actress — and mom to sons Leo Thames, 4 weeks, and James Knight, 22 months — is making shopping for baby a bit easier for other parents (and parents-to-be!). King has teamed up with Gilt to share her mommy must-haves from the company’s collaborative sale with aden + anais.

“What I love best about this collection is that you know that every piece is made with love and care and — most important — functionality,” says King, 36.

From cozy blankets and bibs to sleep sacks and changing pads, the limited edition aden + anais for Little Gilt line — which features an assortment of eight prints exclusive to Gilt — includes everyday items a new mama might need in her nursery.

Among King’s favorites? The sweet snap bibs and fun swaddle packs, both crafted from aden + anais’s signature muslin fabric.

“I’m a huge believer in swaddling as a way to calm and sooth your child and to mimic the womb, and I really love the assortment of designs that are very playful and uniquely different,” King says of the whimsical patterns, including robots, spaceships, butterflies and shooting stars.

King also calls the sleeping bags a “game changer” for parents struggling to catch even a few hours of shuteye.

“They promote safety while sleeping, and the aden + anais muslin material is breathable and works for all temperatures,” she explains.
