Well, I’m back for another round of baby favorites! I’ve been doing these posts every six weeks and they have become my favorite posts to write. Not only do I love highlighting the products we’re using and love (and hopefully helping other moms and babies along the way), but it’s so crazy how the the type of products have changed as she’s gotten older and that after 4 1/2 months, I still have five new, awesome products to share each time! If you need to catch up on my past baby favorites, you can find part one here and part two here.
Dreft Laundry Stain Remover Spray – Oh baby, do I love love love the smell of Dreft products. Before Cecilia was born I used another unscented brand to wash all her clothes and they had a very strong chemical smell that made me ill. Bleh. I started using Dreft after she was born and I seriously sometimes open her dresser drawers to get a whiff of Dreft. Ahhhh. So, not only do I love the detergent, but I love this spray. It’s seriously gotten rid of every type of stain I’ve tried it on. My husband and I even use it on our own clothes! I also have the travel version in the diaper bag and it has come in so handy for those 0n-the-go messes. LOVE.
Original Moby Wrap – When we took our baby care class my husband was the real life class model for baby wearing. Actually, I volunteered him to be the class model when the teacher asked for one 🙂 Either way, he quickly took a liking to the Moby so we made sure to get ours before Cecilia arrived. When we got home from the hospital, he was the only one he used to calm Cecilia down when nothing else would work. It seriously was like magic. She loved being cuddled up close to him and I know he loved being able to bond with her like I had for the nine months prior. I started using the Moby when Cecilia was about two months old and, again, she loved it. At first, it resulted in an instant nap for her. Now at 4 1/2 months she doesn’t nap in it as often, but loves that she is close to me and has the ability to move her head around and check out her surroundings. I love using it for walks around the neighborhood and when I’m out and can’t push her in the stroller and have a shopping cart.
Sophie the Giraffe – Sophie is not just hype. She’s for real. I don’t know what it is about her, but Cecilia LOVES her. She’ll eat her ears, her neck and her legs. Seriously, Sophie drowns in drool every time we use her. I love that she’s easy to clean and also squeaks to get Cecilia’s attention during the all-important tummy time. I was skeptical about Sophie because she’s so pricey for a teether, but Cecilia plays with her all day and we never go on a car trip without her.
Amazon Mom Diaper Delivery – Diapers delivered directly to your doorstep AND a 20% discount? NO BRAINER! It’s so convenient to not have to head out to the store every time you’re low on diapers and since you go through diapers like crazy, the discount is a huge incentive. We added Amazon Mom for free onto our Amazon Prime account and it was one of the best decisions. We’ve timed the delivery perfectly that now it comes right when we’re down to our last few.
Motorola MBP18 Monitor – Now that Cecilia is starting to sleep in her crib, this monitor has come in very handy. At first, I thought we’d just need an audio-only monitor since our condo is so tiny, but now that we have a video monitor I can’t imagine having any other type. I’m actually watching baby girl nap as I type this post 🙂 A lot of monitors were two or three times the amount of this one, so I loved that this one has everything I need at a fraction of the price. The picture is clear and the monitor is the right size for me. I also love the zoom feature (for my one million checks to make sure she’s breathing) and assembly and installation were a breeze.
There you have it! Another installment of my five favorite baby items!
See you back here in six weeks for more!
