I feel like I just wrote our two month post last week. How is our little lady already three months old? This month Eloise is much more interested in her surroundings and “grown up” things and much less interested in things like her Infant Seat. Maybe she is just a simple girl at heart but she has still yet to like her swing and seems to be totally over her Infant Seat – anyone else experience this? For the most part we are still loving everything from months one and two. Although she doesn’t seem to sleep as well in the Rock ‘N Play Sleeper as she once did. Maybe she thinks she is too grown up for “baby products”?!? Please share your thoughts and experience here! We’re starting off our three months product list with two things you can’t buy but your little one already has…
Do you think I will regret teaching her this trick?!? Eloise loves to stick her tounge out and loves even more when Tyler and I do it first. It is so fun to see her grow and learn even if it is funny things like sticking her tongue out. It is definitely the highlight of our day to play this little game with her and I can’t wait to teach her more (useful) things!
Even in utero, Eloise has always been very active with her arms but just recently she has discovered those little hands. She is determined to get her entire fist in her mouth. So much so that she almost chokes herself. Obviously, we are trying to put a stop to this but if Eloise was writing this post she would tell you she gets serious enjoyment out of sticking those little fists in her mouth.
I had almost given up on liking the Boppy… it didn’t work well for me and nursing but I love, love it as a place to sit with Eloise! My favorite is setting it on my legs, propping them up on the coffee table and placing Eloise right in my line of sight. We talk about a lot of important things (like future spa days, the latest fall fashions and what we are going to have for dinner) and Eloise thinks I am quite funny. It has also been great for tummy time. The Boppy is probably my favorite product right now!
As we’ve been using bottles more and more I have been very happy with our Dr. Brown’s bottles. Since day one Eloise has been a gassy baby so using these bottles with their proven ability to reduce gassiness, was a must for us. As any parent with a gassy baby would agree – we would do anything that helps provide even an ounce of relief. I’d like to think these bottles help prevent her gas from getting worse. Some people complain they are a pain to clean but I don’t really think so. Then again I have never cleaned a more “normal” bottle with less pieces!
Eloise loves her Ghenky Blankey! This beautiful brightly colored blanket was developed by three very wise moms to serve as more than just a typical “blankey”. The bright colors and various textures actually help with sensory and tactile development. Eloise is truly mesmerized by the blanket and has now started putting it in her mouth (that is how I know she really likes it!). We look forward to featuring a full review and maybe even a giveaway of the Ghenkey Blankey.
We’ve placed this in Eloise’s stroller and she seems to love it. It gives me peace of mind that she is not always laying flat since I am paranoid about flat head. It also elevates her slightly so she doesn’t think it is nap time every time we head outside. Our is from Pottery Barn Kids and I love the super soft micro fleece.
We featured a review and giveaway of the Well Baby Tummy Time Mat and over the last month have gotten some very good use out of it. I refer to it as Eloise’s “yoga mat”. She definitely enjoys tummy time on this mat and I love that is easily cleaned and easy to store when we are not using it.
So that is where we stand at three months. Did anyone else’s little one start boycotting infant seats and/or swings at this age? I am tempted to pack them up and put them in storage but not sure if she is going to decide she likes them again next month? Let me know your thoughts!
