A Mommy's Favorite Things

I wanted to put together a list of some of my favorite things for baby for a few reasons.
1) I have so many pregnant friends and also new mommy friends
2) May help someone in need of a baby shower gift, and
3) I want to document what was/is important so far in Brody's life.

These are just things that have worked for me, so take it for what you want. I hope it is helpful to someone!

Here are just a few of my mommy favorite things...in no particular order...



Food Maker: Beaba Babycook from Williams Sonoma
I have been enjoying making all of Brody's food. (Except for the cereal and oatmeal). It has been super easy with the help of this contraption. A highly recommended item.



A Lifesaver Invention: Pacifier Wipes
We have gone through so many packages! Brody constantly drops his paci, so these have definitely come in handy.



Our Favorite Pacifier Brand: MAM
Not sure why, but he loves this brand of paci. We have tried others, and this is the one he wants.



Night time soothing helper: the Seahorse


Our Favorite Blanket to Swaddle with: Swaddle Designs
We still use this blanket, just not for swaddling anymore.




Favorite Bottles: Dr. Brown's
My pediatrician even recommended this brand.



To help with hiccups: Gripe Water

To help with gas: Mylicon Drops



Brody's Current Favorite Toy:

This thing is amazing! It's fun to play with and encourages walking. He goes all over the house with this thing.



Favorite Diaper Brand: Costco's Kirkland Supreme Diapers
Love, love, love these diapers! Have not had one problem with these. And they are a little cheaper too. Pampers is a very close runner-up.

MaKenna sleeps with her seahorse sleeper! She loves it! I might have to buy that little walking toy for MaKenna for Christmas!

Good idea. I need to try Cosco diapers.

Lindsey,

Thanks for the Dr. Brown's mention. Glad to hear they worked well for you and were recommended by your doctor.

We appreciate the support. My best to you and your family.

Costco diapers are definitely our favorites, too. Even better that they're cheaper! :)

Those are Jacob's favorite paci's too. We also love all the designs and sayings they have on them!

Not sure if you know me or not but we went to high school together. I was blog-stalking and saw yours. Haha! I have a 6 month old and those are also her favorite pacis and toy. She's not walking with it yet but she loves to sit on the floor and play with it.
