I know we are well past the six month mark with Crosby, but I wanted to make sure I shared some of our favorite products for this time frame. We were still using almost everything on our three month favorites list, as well.
Both Kenley and Crosby loved this table. It’s great because the legs come off of the table, so we used it when they both were just able to sit up. Once Crosby started pulling himself up, we put the legs on it and he was able to stand and play. This model is a couple years old and it looks like there is a new one out too, the Fisher-Price Learning Table.
After we found our stroller on Craigslist, I started looking at the accessories that we may need. I saw the car seat adapter but kept thinking that we wouldn’t need it, not to mention I didn’t want to spend the money on it. I had this big plan to wear baby #2 as often as possible, which is good in theory, until you have a sleeping baby in the car seat. During Crosby’s first week, we made a trip to Buy Buy Baby and I picked up the adapter which turned out to be a very good decision. We got tons of use out of it since he could ride in the stroller with the infant car seat, and as an added bonus, Kenley could also ride in her seat in the stroller too.
Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack & Roll Cups
These cups are awesome! They stack, nest, and snap together to make a balls that can roll around. These get used on a daily basis in our household. They are great for a wide range of ages as well.
Sophie the Giraffe and Rhino Toys Oball Rattle
We love chew toys in our house and these are two of our favorites. Crosby got a new Sophie the Giraffe, but he loves both equally the same. The Oball is also a new toy for us and it’s great for chewing, grabbing, and shaking.
Nosefrida (The Snotsucker) Nasal Aspirator
Before you skip over this one because you think it’s not for you… hear me out. We love the snotsucker. It sounds weird, I know. When we were thinking about buying this, we hadn’t heard anything about it, nor knew anyone who used it. Regardless, we decided to try it, so I am here to tell you how great it is. It’s a lot easier than using the bulb aspirators, and most importantly, its’ easy to clean! The bulb aspirator can get very moldy on the inside while the snotsucker cannot. Don’t worry, no snot even comes close to your mouth. It acts more like a vacuum and we use it all the time. If you ask Crosby, he may not be as enthusiastic about it as I am, but that’s ok because it helps him breathe. He’ll thank us later.
