What a difference another six weeks makes!
I feel like once Cecilia hit two months, she was a whole different baby and went from really being a newborn to an infant. I know that doesn’t sound like much of a change, but it totally was! I feel like after the two month mark, everyday she wakes up she does something new or something better than she did the day before. While I’m still loving all the baby items I wrote about in part one of my favorite baby items, now that Cecilia is six weeks older, I have a whole other list of favorites to talk about now that we’ve moved into infant-hood!
Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags - The double zipper on these bags is what makes them better than others I’ve tried. I tried the Medela ones, and each bag leaked. Boo! These have been fantastic and no leaks so far! One thing I have found is that the measurements on the bags is a bit different than what my bottles measure, so I make sure to measure in my bottles then write that measurement on the bag versus what the bag says.
The Boppy Pillow - So I wasn’t a fan of the Boppy in my first round of favorites, but I love it now. I still don’t use it for feeding, but now that she’s older, I use it to prop up Cecilia while she’s lounging on the couch and for tummy time. My husband even likes to use the Boppy as a cushion for his back when it baby isn’t using it and said we should just keep it for ourselves once she doesn’t use it anymore
Tiny Love Gymini Super Deluxe Play Mat – This mat is where Cecilia does all of her floor time playing (you can see a picture of her on it here). It plays music, lights up, has a squeaky toy built in, a bunch of hanging toys and a mirror. When we put her on the mat and turn on the music (Mozart and nursery rhymes are the two options we have to choose from), she starts smiling, cooing and kicking her feet. We’ve named all of the animals (I call them her friends) and have fun playing and talking with them multiple times each day. This mat is also great for tummy time because she loves to look at herself in the mirror so having one on the mat encourages her to lift her head/neck higher.
Dapple Dish Soap (fragrance free) - LOVE this soap! When I first started washing bottles and pump parts, I used my regular dish soap. After just a few days, I noticed the bottles started to smell like the dish soap. Ick! There was also a thin layer of milk residue lining all of my bottles even though I washed them multiple times to try and get it all off. I found Dapple on Amazon, bought it and loved it! It got rid of the build up with just one wash and within a couple of washes, the dish soap smell was no more. An added bonus is I found out they sell this at Target, so I can pick it up an extra bottle whenever I’m there!
Pottery Barn Kids Chamois Stroller Blanket – Holy soft blanket, Batman! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blanket. I tell my husband at least once a week that I wish they sold one in my size. I’m tempted to buy four of them and sew them together so I can have one for me to use when I curl up on the couch. This blanket is so soft and is actually really easy to get stains out of – even on the white side of the blanket – which is a bonus for anything for babies. It’s available in a ton of different colors to match any nursery and can even be personalized.
There you have it – another round of baby item favorites! Stay tuned for the next edition in a few weeks!
