Baby Products

  • Munchkin Teether/Feeder: When babies are that age where they want to chew on everything (especially real food), but you’re afraid they’re going to choke, this thing is a lifesaver. You put whatever food they want in the mesh part, close the top and let them go at it. They end up sucking a lot of the food out of the tiny holes, and everyone is happy. I even used this with ice or frozen berries as a teether – worked great!
  • Wubba Nub pacifer: I love this paci because it’s not as hard to lose and I especially love it when they’re a few months old and you can put the stuffed animal’s arms under the car seat straps and the paci stays propped up for the baby to find.  ?
  • Swaddle Me: These swaddle blankets were a lifesaver for getting our girls to sleep through the night. I used this one when they were newborns.
  • HALO SleepSack: I used this swaddle when they got a little older and stronger and could Houdini their way out of the swaddle.   It gave me great peace of mind that they were warm without a blanket in bed. Once the babies started rolling over, I did take their arms out of the swaddle.
  • Valco Baby Stroller: Double stroller with joey seat.  Not many moms will need this, but if you have 3 littles who all need a seat, this is the best stroller!  I used it almost every day.  If I lost it, I’d buy another despite the price.
  • Portable Sound Machine: My first baby hated her car seat and so I needed to find something to soothe her (and me). Enter this amazing sound machine that hook to the car seat. It is definitely a go-to baby gift for anyone I know now!
  • Aden+Anais Blankets These blankets are light and airy- perfect for swaddling, stuffing in a diaper bag, taking to those first Doctor’s Appointments, having something lightweight in the Summer, and the list could go on and on.  My youngest loves to bring a blankey EVERYWHERE and this is an easy way to bring her comfort with her, without hauling around a huge blanket everywhere we go.  Since the blankets come in a 4-pack you have plenty of extras when you’re needing to wash them or if heaven forbid one gets left behind someplace.  
  • Sound Machine: We swear by sound machines to help our girls sleep. I never found one I absolutely loved but my sister-in-law found this one and wished she would have bought this one from the get-go. To get and keep kids to sleep = priceless.
  • Soothe and Glow Sea Horse: When my girls were babies they loved these sea horses because the music and light were so soothing to them. And we brought them with us when we were traveling because they transported well.

For the New Mama:

  • Lansinoh Soothies Gel Pads: This is my go-to baby gift for new mamas who are breastfeeding. They were the only thing that brought me relief in the first week of breastfeeding.
