Today we have a wise first time mama sharing her favorite products for her oh-so-handsome little guy. Elizabeth has a few “new” favorites on the list today – like the Carter’s onesies. It makes me think, oh yeah, I love those too but use them so much it is almost like I forget they are my favorites. While Elizabeth provides great insight on her choices my favorite part of this post is her smiling little guy, Mason – could he be any cuter? A big thanks to Elizabeth for sharing her picks and if you would like to share yours – email me!
I am a first time mom to a 9 month old little boy named Mason. I live in the suburbs in Southern California in a 950 square foot apartment.
1. Sophie the Giraffe
Mason absolutely LOVES his Sophie the giraffe! So much so that we are on Sophie #2 already and he’s only 9 months old (Sophie #1 lost her squeak so we had to get a new one). It’s great for teething – he puts her mouth, ear, foot, you name it in his mouth all the time – and is great for getting his attention or getting him to smile while trying to take his picture.
2. SwaddleMe Swaddle blanket
We loved these swaddle blankets when Mason was first born until about 3-4 months. They were great for keeping his arms and legs tucked in so we could fall asleep easily. We tried to put him down for a nap without a swaddle and he just woke himself up every couple of minutes because his arms or legs would move. These are highly recommended!
3. Puj Tub
This tub is the best! It came highly recommended by my sister-in-law and now I know why. Our bathroom sink was a little small so we use it in the kitchen sink and it works perfectly! It keeps Mason sitting upright while he gets a bath and is soft for him to sit in. We still use it now sometimes (even though he is way too big for it) because it is so convenient and fast to give him a quick bath. It also folds flat for easy storage!
4. Carter’s onesies
For us, these onesies are the BEST! Mason is long and skinny and we found that most other onesies are too wide and are swimming on him. Carter’s fits him great and come is super cute styles! I want to buy them all!
5. Summer Infant Monitor
There are what feels like a million baby monitors out there. We chose this one and absolutely love it. We debated getting that huge tv monitor one but realized we probably didn’t need that. This one is perfect, small, super clear picture, has the option for multiple channels (for more than one kid), and has good battery life. We even bring it on vacation with us for when Mason is in a separate room from us.
This stuff is perfect for diaper rash and when your baby is teething and drooling and gets a little rash on his face from all the moisture. A little goes a long way and really, really helps!
7. Peg Perego
We love this stroller! The main seating snaps on and off so when your baby is in an infant seat, the infant seat can snap straight to the frame and becomes more like a travel system stroller. Super convenient as you can just take the infant seat from the car to the stroller and back. When your baby is old enough to sit in the stroller on their own, you snap the main seating back on and off you go! Mason is so comfortable in the stroller that he puts his feet up now as we cruise around.
Again, another BIG thanks to sweet Elizabeth and her cute little man. I’d love to feature your favorites too, email me for details!
