I wanted to share an update to my Newborn & Expectant Mother Must-Haves Post because although we still use most of those items, there are a few things we’ve added since Little Man exited the newborn stage. I thought I’d share them today in case any of you have kiddos in the same age range or are looking for a gift for a baby in this age range.
Heads up, you can also see most of these items in my Amazon storefront as well!
Supergoop Sunscreen Stick
This mineral stick sunscreen smells like vanilla and is perfect to quickly get sunscreen on his face and neck without too much fuss!
Blue Lizard Sunscreen
I use this Blue Lizard sunscreen on his legs and arms before our morning walk! This brand was recommended by our pediatrician and our dermatologist. 6 Months Plus ONLY
SkyGenius Battery Operated Clip-On Fan
Obviously, this fan could be used to clip on the stroller for any age to help keep your little one cool during walks. We started using it a couple of months ago when it was 80+ at 630 AM. We’ve really loved having it so I had to include it here!
Swim Ways Baby Float Activity Center
This float is great for Little Man in the pool! It comes with a few baby toys that we use a lot when playing in the pool!
This baby swimsuit is more like a wetsuit, but Little Man doesn’t seem to mind and it’s great to protect him from the sun!
Alvababy Reusable Swim Diapers
I started to get annoyed with disposable diapers the baby uses for 30 minutes or less and doesn’t even go to the bathroom in them. So I bought these Alvababy Reusable Swim Diapers and so far I’m really happy with them! Now, I’ve only tried them since Little Man started solids and has more solid diapers AND he has not pooped in them yet so I can’t speak to that. So far I just like having them and they will grow with him because they have adjustable snap locations.
Happy Baby Teethers
These Happy Baby teethers were great for the little man before he could do the puffs (see below.)
Happy Baby Puffs
Little man loves these Happy Baby Puffs! I was the only way we could motivate him to crawl, ha ha! We only started giving them to him in the last month though.
Munchkin Stay Put Bowl
These Munchkin Stay Put Bowls are great! Dishwasher friendly and they actually stay put pretty darn well! Little man loves to grab huge handfuls of food out of them.
Nuk Learner Sippy Cup
I tried a couple of different cup options, but this Nuk Learner Sippy Cup was the one Little Man liked the best. It’s so cute to see him pick it up and drink out of it himself!
Grapple Suction High Chair Toy
I bought several high chair toys, and this ended up being the best one. The Grapple Suction High Chair Toy holds all his teethers and other toys to the high chair with ease.
Apparently, Wubbanubs aren’t recommended over 6 months or once the baby gets teeth. I know a ton of people use them with no problem, but the manufacturer states that they can become warn and come apart. So, we replaced them with Nookums which I honestly love so much better. You can separate the binky from the animal so then you can sanitize the binky and wash the animals. Little man had no problem switching from the soothie pacifier to the nookums.
Infantino Balls, Bricks, and Buddies Toy Set
This Infantino Balls, bricks, and Buddies Toy Set has been a huge hit with Little Man! He loves to knock down the blocks, crawl after the balls, and bite the little buddies!
Vtech Sit to Stand Learning Walker
This Vtech Sit to Stand Learning Walker is really versatile, the faceplate comes off and moved around which is a nice feature. Little man would stand and play with it while holding on to the couch. Recently he’s been able to use the walker and walk a couple of feet with it, although I make sure I hold him in case he slips forward.
Croc N Frog 2 In 1 Cart Cover
I use this cart cover every time we go to the store. It has a few placed to attach toys, a water bottle holder, and a plastic cell phone cover section. My cell phone doesn’t fit into it, but his favorite light-up toy does, so that’s good!
Let me know in the comments if I missed something that you love for this age range!
