I love baby gear and products. Let’s face it, Andrew has a lot of hand-me-down stuff, but sometimes he just has to have NEW since he IS my baby and all. Plus, so many of our hand-me-downs have gotten REALLY good use and have seen better days. It’s really nice when Andrew gets something NEW of his own.
Not only is Andrew loving these great new products, but so is his mama.
Every single one of these products makes Baby Andrew happy, and that’s what matters the most; especially now that he’s teething something fierce.
1. We can’t get enough of these amazing new toys from Fat Brain. They are called Little PipSquigz and they are SO fun and awesome to play with. These things are tough and have super suction (we’ve all experienced the toys with super weak suction) and can stick to baby’s highchair or to each other to make really cool shapes for baby to play with. They are made from super soft silicone and they also act as rattles that can be stuck to just about anything! Use them at feeding time, in the bath, in the car, in the stroller, or just about anywhere! Your baby will LOVE them! PipSquigz are a super high-quality toy!
Andrew is teething big time. The poor little guy seems to be getting four bottom teeth all at once. The Chewbeads necklaces, made from silicone, come in all sorts of shapes and colors to soothe baby’s gums all while mama looks stylish. I went for the more versatile stormy grey color so I could wear them with just about anything. Andrew is always comforting himself with these and he seems to really like the way they feel on his gums. Would you believe they are even dishwasher safe? SCORE!
The HALO® SleepSack® new muslin collection is all Andrew needs for a good night’s sleep during the warm summer months. Chris swears by this thing at bedtime, “Anne, don’t forget to put his skirt blanket on to keep his legs all tucked in!” Skirt blanket? Yup, that’s what we call this thing now. It’s made from 100% cotton and is soft and light to the touch, making it super “breathable.” We love the inverted zipper for easy diaper changes that won’t catch on baby’s chin – they’ve really thought of everything. You can give HALO some love over on Facebook , Pinterest and Twitter.
We JUST got the Lil’ Frog 2-in-1 Walker by Delta Children. This is Andrew’s new favorite entertainment spot that lights up and makes sounds for fun, stimuating play. We have a lot of room for Andrew to roam around in this thing, but we often transform it from a walker to a stationery activity center too. He loves it and he’s super cute as he practices his walking skills when he’s playing with his big brothers and sister around the house. This was a major score from BabyPalooza at Blogger Bash NYC! We’re loving it.
Ok, ok, we’re throwing in #5. Remember I said Andrew is teething? Ya, there’s that. We NEVER used these (why, I don’t know) before on any of the #stowkids, but Andrew really finds relief from Orajel’s Natural Teething Tablets. They are homeopathic and safe to give to baby and must taste really good because Andrew makes this lovely little coo of approval every time we give him some. They dissolve in seconds and really make his gums feel better. Not sure what took us so long to get going with these things!
There you have it – that’s what Andrew and Annie and loving this summer in the baby product department. I know my top five won’t always align with your top five, so what are you and baby loving this summer? Please tell us in the comments! We’d love to hear your top baby products for summer 2014!
