3-6 Month Must Haves

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

I'm so excited about the must-haves for this age range, because so many fun things get added to baby's day as they start playing, learning to sit, and adding in solids. Here are a few of my favorite things I used all the time during the last 3 months with Natalie:

1. Ergo Carrier: By far, this is the best carrier I have ever used. It is so comfortable to wear, and she never cries while she's in it. She loves to face out while we are walking around places like Disneyland, and then I turn her to face me for snuggly naps. The game changer for me has been the attached sun shade and the detachable pouch that it comes with. Super useful to have! This carrier is worth every dime, people!

2. Bumbo: I know this product has had mixed reviews over the years, but Baylee, my two nieces, and now Natalie have all used it starting around 3 months, and they were all early sitters! I never let Natalie sit in it too long, and always supervised. She loved seeing her world from a different angle, and it functioned as a seat for her when we introduced solids. She started sitting up independently at just under 5 months old, and I know the Bumbo helped! 

3. Baby Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit: I now have two girls to show proof that this sleepsuit is a life saver! Both my girls used it to transition out of the swaddle, and they both did amazing with it. Natalie did significantly better than Baylee, but she's been a better sleeper since day one, so I'm not surprised. As soon as I put this thing on Nat she knows its bed time and starts closing her eyes. It helped to keep her from startling awake, and other than the 4 month sleep regression, she has been sleeping anywhere from 9-12 hours straight with it on! As of right now she hasn't starting rolling over in it, but I will be really sad when she does. We have started practicing with a sleep sack for naps, but its just not the same!

4. Logan & Alice Teethers: These teethers are the cutest, and Natalie absolutely loves hers! They come in a pineapple, fox, bear, and teepee in all kinds of colors. Super adorable!

5. Baby Einstein Jumper: Love, love, love this thing, and I wish I had had one for Baylee. Natalie loves to bounce around and play with her toys; it keeps her so entertained! We added our own links to ours and change out the toys every so often to make it fun for her. She loves making the music go off on the little piano, and sometimes I let her bounce before bed to get her super tired. :)

6. Mesh Feeder: These are so fun for beginning eaters and teething! We like to put frozen blueberries, apple chunks, and pears in ours and she goes to town on them. You can also put in a cube of ice or breast milk for relief from sore gums. I throw mine in the dishwasher after use to make clean up super easy!

What are your favorite products for this age range
I would love to try some new ideas or add some to the list!

Until next time! XoXoXo
