I have spent the last 4+ years completely consumed in baby/toddler land. I have been pregnant or nursing for over 4 years straight, and I have barely poked my head out of the all-consuming baby fog.
Needless to say, I am quite versed in baby product quality and necessity these days and I thought I would share some of my all-time favorite needs & wants with you!
In no particular order:
ErgoBaby Carrier – this thing is a lifesaver x1000! Extra arms, in fact. And incredibly easy on your back, compared to many other carriers and slings!
Crocs – I know this may seem silly, but I think Crocs are one of the best inventions for little “I can do it mySELF”-ers! Easy on and off and so many cute styles. WAY cuter on the little kids (especially boys!) than on the rest of us!
Robeez – On that same note, these adorable little shoes are genius for the littlest tinies! Cute, warm, and they keep those darn socks on!
LeapPad – my boys are absolutely in love with this! In fact we had to put Bjørn’s away because they fought over it so much. Now we just got Haakon one for his birthday and they will both sit and play happily! Bonus: There are some great educational apps and my kids are learning a ton!
Wheely Bug – ok. this one may be more cute for me to look at, but seriously… isn’t it adorable? And great quality. This is one of those toys you will be saving to pass on to your grandkids!
Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart – Hours and hours of fun. Shopping, racing, pretending… So much fun!
Retro Wooden Kitchen – Another piece that I absolutely love and so do my kids. So, so cute too!
Aden + Anaiis Bamboo Dream Blanket – Oh. My. Word. This thing is heavenly! It’s kind of like… wrapping yourself (ahem, your baby) up in warm satin. Beautiful!
Amber Teething Necklaces – Absolutely essential for teething baby happiness (in my opinion!). And pretty darn cute too!
Despicable Me – We have watched this movie about a dozen times in the last 3 days. And you know what? Andrew and I love it as much as the kids do! Definitely at the top of our favorite kids movies ever!
If you are looking for Christmas ideas for the kids in your life, I hope this helped!
