We’re only 6 weeks in but I’ve already discovered a number of baby items (and momma items) that we can’t live without. Most of these are items I received as gifts or suggestions from moms-in-the-know and all of them are fantasticly helpful, so I thought I’d pass on the information. In no particular order:
Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets: Lilly lives in these…literally! Its SO hot in Florida that most days we don’t even bother dressing Lilly in actual clothes. Instead we keep her in her diaper and wrap her loosely in one of these blankets. Plus we use them to swaddle Lilly for bed each night. They are really large compared to other blankets and so lightweight…made of muslin…they’re unlike any other blankets we’ve received. We have five of these blankets already and we go through them so quickly I’m seriously considering buying a few more. If you’re having a baby (especially in warmer months) or know someone having a baby these blankets are a must-have.
Best Bottom Cloth Diapers: Yeah, if you’ve read this blog before you probably know I’ve had a mild obsession with cloth diapering. I’m happy to report that we love the diapers we chose. They are easy to change, easy to wash every other day, they dry quickly in the sun on our back deck and they look absolutely adorable on Lilly. They also seem to have cured Lilly of diaper rash. Even better, we’re not shelling out $20 to $30 a week for disposables. I did a ton of research before choosing this particular diaper and I truly think all the research paid off. Even JiT loves the diapers and doesn’t mind the extra steps to clean them at all. And did I mention how cute they are?
