Happy real mom Wednesday! Wednesday’s are one of our favorite days around here and I am so thrilled to have Heather here sharing her favorite products for her sweet as can be little guy, Mills. Heather has some great picks – lots of which make our list like the Evenflo Exersaucer. I know you’ll enjoy her list and if you are would to share your favorites – email me!
I am a first time mom to a sweet and active 6 month old boy, Mills. We live in a suburban community in a single family home. The first 6 months have been a joy, but we have had lots of trial and error to find the things that work for us. These are the items that we can not live without and will definitely use with future babies.
1 – ERGObaby Baby Carrier: This has been essential. Mills loves being close to me as I do things around the house and in the yard. He loves looking at all the new things in his environment from a safe place.
2 – Sophie the Giraffe: Mills got his first tooth at 4 months and Sophie has been a great help in the teething process. I do not know what it is about this sweet giraffe, but Mills loves to gnaw on her and make her squeak.
3 – Evenflo Exersaucer: When he is not exploring in the Ergo, he loves his exersaucer. This has been a great place for him to sit and play while I get things done. All of the fun toys keep him entertained for up to 30 minutes.
4 – OXO Tot Mini Dishwasher Basket: This is great for the small items that I want to put in the dishwasher. It is BPA free and it expands for any odd shaped items.
5 – Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water: This has helped with teething, tummy pain, and really any fussiness. He loves this stuff! I love this brand because it does not have to be refrigerated so I can keep near his bed or in the diaper bag for quick relief.
6 – aden + anais bibs: Because Mills began teething so soon, he has had constant drool for the last 4 months. These bibs have been great to keep his clothes dry and they are cute too!
7 – BabyGanics Say Aahhh! Flouride Free Toothpaste: Mills has a sensitivity to dairy and we were surprised to find that that lots of baby toothpastes have milk in them. BabyGanics Say Aahhh! does not have dairy in it and Mills loves the taste.
