My Go-To Baby Products

It’s no secret that we’re expecting our third and tomorrow we might be able to find out the sex of our child.

Although we’re the least bit concerned about the sex, it does help to plan for potential items we might need. One of the perks of having boys first is that we have a variety of items that could work for a little girl. All we would need to add is a dress or two. In this post, I share a handful of items that make everyday life with our little ones run a lot smoother.

Bath Time Essentials 
Our boys love bathing, they could do without showers. Oftentimes I let them soak in a bubble bath for longer than usual so they can calm down before bedtime. If we’re running late, we opt for a shower.

Although we have two bathtubs for our boys, we use one. It’s called the Stokke Flexibath and it makes tidying up a breeze. You can see our little one in action in this video:

 

Aside from finding the right bathtub for your little one, I highly recommend trying a variety of body washes to see which one meets your baby’s needs. Personally, I like the Aveeno Lightly Scented Body Wash. 

It meets our needs in both price range and their skin sensitivities. A bonus: it’s perfect for bubble baths!

Feeding Your Baby
Most parents would agree that feeding time is one of the best times to bond with your little ones. And not to mention the messiest! We like to use products that allow for an easy clean, like choosing the silicone or plastic bibs over the cloth ones. You can find these just about anywhere, even at your local Target.


Caring For Your Little One
Feeling under the weather isn’t fun, can you imagine what it’s like to care for a child who isn’t feeling well. This means lots of cuddles and fluids.

We love cuddling up with fleece blankets during sick days. They really do make everything better, no matter how sick you feel.

Another favorite is the Braun ThermoScan No Touch + Forehead thermometer. This thermometer has helped us keep track of fevers while our boys slept. No one likes to be disturbed when they’re sleeping — more so when they’re sick — and this thermometer is non-invasive.

Do you have any baby must-haves you’d like to add?

    Great go-to baby products. I’ve seen the silicone or plastic bibs before, and I think they’re a great idea, from a clean up standpoint.

    That folding tub is nice. I think it will be very easy to store. I love silicone bibs too. So easy to just wipe off and you can always have one handy.

    How cool is that folding bath tub? Perfect for travelling or families who dont have a bathtub!

    Aveeno was a lifesaver with my (not-so-little) son. He use to get eczema bad and it was the only thing that helped at the time. And I wish I had those bibs when he was little, or if they did, I didn’t know about it. It would have been perfect!

    It is always exciting to find out what you are having. I would have love the Stokke Flexibath when my Son was little. It would be a great baby shower gift.

    Great round-up and review of baby/kid products. I have used some of these in the past. That Stokes Flexi Bath is a great idea!

    THe bib with the drip tray is great when they start eating on their own. My little often eats directly out of it once he’s cleared his plate.

    I have never seen a folding bathtub before! We have a new baby coming into the family. This would be a great gift.

    Aveeno is such a great brand. I love that they have a line for the smaller kids.

    A swaddler! I didn’t use one with my first two, but I did with Elizabeth. She slept so much better at night those first couple months. I recommend having a couple swaddlers.

    i have just discovered Aveeno and I am loving it for my kids. I am planning to look for more Aveeno products because it suits our family’s skin type.
