It’s amazing how much stuff babies seem to have. OK so they probably don’t need it all but sometimes I can’t help myself. I thought going forward I would share the products we are loving each month. Some have been sent to us and others we have bought ourselves ( bloggers do actually buy things).
So here is what we are loving this month:
Little Miss is being baby led weaned which is so much easier than the purees we did with BG. One of the upsides is you need very little to actually do it. However there are a few items that make life a little easier.
Bibs! BLW is very, very messy. As the weather is warm I often strip her down but there are times a bib comes in handy. My favourite are the wipe down bibs, cloth bibs just get stained. We were sent a Jake Giraffe Bibsili £6.99 from www.piccolobambino.co.uk to try out.
Little Miss has a fascination with Giraffes so it was a big hit with her straight away. There are several features I like about this:
- It’s easy to clean. It even goes in the dishwasher
- The crumb catcher. Little has already worked out how to get food out if it.
- The adjustable neck, there are three different notches on it
These bibs are must when weaning. They come in different designs.
Another must is the MAM Dipper Set. It’s a spoon and fork set which has a little shield on it to stop them sticking it too far down their throats. This means Little Miss can feed herself yogurt and porridge. She mastered using it very quickly and gets very excited when she sees it coming out of the draw.
MAM also sent me a feeding bowl which is spilt in two sections and comes with a lid handy for at home and for taking food about. We also received some teething products which came just in time.
The Bite and Relax Phase Two is great for gnashing on, it has 4 different surfaces and just right for little hands. It comes with its own transportation box which can be used for sterilising.
The Mini Coolers are also a great product, just pop them in the fridge and then let your baby go at them. I love that it comes with a little strap and clip perfect for on the go.
Teething powders are a must in this house. I mainly used Aston and Parsons when BG was teething but they are very hard to get hold of now so I use Nelson Teetha powders and they work really well. I find they calm Little Miss down and she is a happier baby. I have also been using them with BG who is having problems with her teeth and had an abscess recently and they helped her as well. I buy mine at Boots but they are available in most chemist and supermarkets.
Solar Eclipse Sunshade from Diono £13.99 . I must for any trip in the car that pesky sun gets in Little Miss’s eyes. It has two layers one is a total blackout for extra sunny days and then you can just have to bottom layer which lets a little light through.
I was sent some Baby Eye Care wipes from TLC to try out. Little Miss gets a little bit of hay fever when the grass is cut and I found these wipes really gentle and helped soothed her eyes when we were out and about. I have also been using them as I have had really sore and watering eyes this year and they have been a life saver when out. The wipes sooth but stop my eyes drying out and getting sore which happens when I keep wiping them.
I like that they come individually wrapped you can pop a few in your bag.
The biggest hit at the moment is Little Miss’s Fisher Price Jumperoo. BG was bought a trampoline so I decided Little Miss needed something, so a few months ago I bought one from Sainsbury’s. She liked being in there but wasn’t overly excited but in the last month it’s been the source of a lot of giggles. She loves jumping around and worked out how to spin it and loves to play with the different toys. I am really glad we invested in it. It can be adjusted to three heights and she is on the lowest at the moment so she has room to grow.
