NESTING 6-12 Months
In honor of my daughter's first birthday we are taking a look at some of the things that made her first year a little easier. Today I am sharing my list of favorite items for 6-12 month old little ones. (Check out my Newborn and 0-6 Month Old lists for more recommendations.)
FEEDING Magic Bullet and Booster. As you and baby start to explore the world of solid foods, a magic bullet is a great way to make homemade purees to freeze. A booster seat is a good space saving option over a full high chair.
CLOTHING Robeez. My baby hates socks. The best way I've found to keep her feet covered in the winter is to put on a pair of Robeez. They are also great for new walkers as they don't confine baby's feet.
SAFETY Baby Gate and Outlet Covers. I've found that you actually need fewer baby proofing gadgets then you think, but two of the most useful are a good baby gate and some outlet covers. A little piece of mind goes a long way.
BOOKS Board books are great for little hands to explore. A few of our favorites are Swing, The Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear, Brown Bear.
SIGNING Baby Signing Time This short video can help teach you and baby some signs to cut down on baby's frustration.
POTTY Baby Bjorn Potty Chair This little potty chair is easy to clean and great for even the smallest babies (if you are doing Elimination Communication.)
SIPPY CUPS Lifefactory Sippy Cups/Bottles Babies can learn how to drink out of regular cups rather quickly, but if you need sippy cup this glass one has been great. We just switched out the bottle nipples for a sippy lid.
