Our Favorites // Three Months

I want to share some of the items that we’ve been loving and using since Crosby has arrived.
Here are our favorites for the first three months.

Baby 411

This book is seriously amazing! We received it as a gift with Kenley and have purchased it for a good number of our friends since then.
I was surprised how much we had forgotten in the last two years, so having this around has been so helpful.
We’ve both gone back and read up on several topics since Crosby has been here. I guarantee it won’t be the last time either.

Motorola Wireless Video Baby Monitor

This was another one of our stellar Craigslist finds back when Kenley was about six or seven months old.
It was brand new and too good of deal to pass up. I’ll be the first to admit this is a total luxury item, but we have absolutely loved it ever since we got it.
Ours came with two cameras, so we didn’t have to worry about getting another monitor when Crosby arrived.
We have it set on scan so it goes from room to room throughout the night.
At this point, I’m not sure how we ever lived without it. (Most of the time) it’s fun watching what they are doing in there!

Aden By aden + anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets

I know I have mentioned before how much I love these blankets, but I seriously love them.
Once we were done using them as swaddle blankets, we started using them for everything else.
We use them in the car seat, in the stroller, for shade, as a nursing cover up, as a burp cloth, you name it.
Kenley still uses hers at school to cover up during nap time.

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes

Crosby loves this thing. It’s the only way we keep him distracted during tummy time.
He has no idea how hard he’s working when he’s staring at the flashing lights & listening to the jams.
It will be fun when he learns to hit the button himself.

Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play

We love the rock ‘n play. I’ll say it again how much I wish we had this with Kenley.
Even though Crosby isn’t sleeping in it anymore, we still use it everyday.
It moves from room to room with us and he mostly sits in it while we’re cooking and eating dinner.
We also have taken it to Grammy’s house for him to sleep in, which was much better than taking the pack ‘n play.

Boppy Pillow, etc.

I am a huge fan of the Boppy pillow. I loved having it with Kenley and used it every single day for almost a year. I ended up getting another one secondhand so I could keep one in our bedroom for the time I was on maternity leave… you may call this lazy, but it worked for me. I know the Boppy is really hit or miss. If you’re in the market, I know a lot of mommies who love the Breast Friend pillows, so take a look at those too.
While we’re on the subject, here are some other items that have made my life a little easier the first three months:
Bamboobies
Lanolin Cream
Medela Quick Clean Wipes
Medela Pump & Save BagsΒ – I haven’t had good luck with the Lansinoh brand, but I’m planning to try the Target brand.

These are just a few of the many items out there that have made the first three months a little bit easier.
What are your favorite baby items?

  1. I haven’t tried the quick clean wipes, but the quick clean steam bags that you can use 20 times are awesome! Just pop them in the microwave and then let them dry on your racking “lawn” πŸ™‚

  2. the rock n play was life-changing! it didn’t last for a terrible long time, but it sure made our first month or two SO nice. (i also didn’t have one for round one)
