These are the items that we haven’t been able to live without this past month. Of course, we still use the bouncer, baby wash, and the blankets that we used during the first three months, but things are a little different now. The bouncer is almost too small for our growing baby boy and the blankets are used for chewing rather than warmth. Baby wash is still baby wash, and we’ve completely moved away from pacifiers.
Baby Einstein™ Musical Motion Activity Jumper™ We can’t live without this! It has a barrel that makes noise, it has buttons that light up and say colors and shapes in English, Spanish, and French, it’s has adjustable height levels, it’s sturdy, and it’s colorful. The only bad thing is that you have to buy the toys that attach to the arms. Oh, and when it says “collapsable for flat storage” it really means “disassemble for flat storage”. Grandma Recer got this for us and our boy has used it every day since.
Lamaze Play & Grow Flutterbug It crinkles, it rattles, and it vibrates when you pull the flower away from the bee. The only thing it doesn’t do is light up. It’s soft and plush, the rings are textured and are helping with our son’s teething, and the under side is high contrast black and white. This is the toy we take with us when we leave the house. It’s guaranteed to entertain.
Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat … because our 4 month old is the size of a toddler. Our son has mostly outgrown his Bumbo, so we got the booster seat. It’s helping him balance, plus it’s very similar to the table he sits in at school. The blue tray is for play and has a lip that holds in toys, the white tray is for food, and the green “tray” is actually a locking lid for the white tray. We can pack up the whole seat and take it with us anywhere we go. The white tray and lid can store food and fits in our diaper bag easily. When we start on solid food, I’m sure this will come in handy
HALO® SleepSack® Wearable Blanket Cotton Blue This one is just like the micro-fleece one, only one size bigger and in cotton. We have one that has owls on it, too. Our son has started to associate the sleep sacks with bed time, and we’re okay with that. We put him in the sleep sack right before his last bottle of the day. It seems to soothe him and encourage him to wind down for a good night’s sleep.
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn™ Singin’ Soccer Ball Entertaining during tummy time. The voice is fairly high pitched, so it keeps our son’s attention. It’s colorful and high contrast at the same time. It has music and melodies, as well as speaks numbers.
