Month 4 and 5 favorites!
1.) Our Baby Einstein Jumparoo! Ledoux is currently in this right now- and she LOVES using her legs to jump! It keeps her occupied for a good 30 minutes, which allows mama to get SOOO much done! It is ahhmazing what I can acomplish these days in 30 minutes...
2.) Boogie wipes! I LOVE THESE! This kid has boogers all the time- sometimes I wonder how on earth so many boogies can come out of such a little body! Regardless, these are great for their sensitive little baby noses. The ones I like smell like menthol and have saline in them- perfect for her first little colds when she is all stuffed up.
3.) Overnight dipeys: now that doodle sleeps 12 hours straight, she needs a strong dipey so she wakes up with a dry bum. These do the trick for us!
4.) Little muchkin mesh feeders: these are SO GREAT! GET THESE! Ledoux isn't ready to eat anything we eat (far from it actually...) but with these, I can steam up some veggies, or put some fresh fruit in the mesh and she can teeth on it and suck the juices out. She likes frozen strawberries/blue berries or fresh melon- so fun!
5.) Nuby teether: its bendable, soft, and is a great little toy for her to play with and teeth on. She loves it!
6.) Lamaze Parrot: Ledoux has been in love with this toy since the beginning, and it is still our fave! She recently discovered it has a mirror on one of the wings, and she loves to look at herself. I hang it from her jumperoo to play with.
7.) Beeba spoons: I love these! Some people think a spoon is a spoon, but not with little babes! These are super soft, and feel good on their little toothless gums.
8.) JJ Cole Bundle me: we might live in Tucson, but it has been FREEZING cold in this desert lately! Ledoux was bundled in clothes, jacket, coat, hat, mittens... you get the picture. Then I discovered this! Its a car seat insert that fits pretty much any seat, and keeps the baby nice and toasty! Its great! And I don't have to put a million layers on her!!
9.) Cupcake red velvet wine: don't judge honey pie! I am a better mom thanks to a glass of wine! This wine seriously feels like butter-- so smooth. and one glass does the trick (most nights!) :)
10.) Bright Starts swing: we got this when Ledoux was a newborn and she hated it. seriously, hated. Now, it is our magic sleep machine. It is the ONLY way I can get her to nap during the day- I start her into this baby and like magic- Poof! Sleeping baby.
