Four Useful Items for Ages 3 to 6 Months

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I wanted to share 5 items that I found very useful from the ages of 3 to 6 months. The following items were very beneficial to Paulie!

Silicone Teether

At 5 months, we decided to start introducing solids to Paul. I found this amazing silicone feeder that is perfect for introducing solids and that works perfectly for a teething child. We put frozen fruits in this feeder and Paul’s face lights up whenever we give him this to him.

Ringly Teething Ring

Both Paul and I LOVE Ringly Teething Rings. The fabric is made from organic cotton terrycloth and the ring is made from maple wood. These teething rings are perfect for sensory play because each teething ring has many different textures. Paul loves his Elephant Teething Ring, and with this model, the maple wood is detachable. Since maple wood cannot be washed, this makes the fabric easy to clean. He also has the Knotted Teething Ring.

Prince Lionheart Pod

At 3 months old, every time I put Paul on his back or on a slant, he would crunch to try to sit up. I definitely recommend the Prince Lionheart Booster Pod. He used this pod until he was 4 1/2 months old and then we started putting him in the high chair.

Sling

Paulie loves to be held, and I found this sling to be perfect! It’s soft, it fits my body, it’s made of organic cotton, and Paulie loves it!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a very happy Tuesday =D

 

5 Items I Found to be Helpful from Birth to 3 months

Good morning and happy Friday! Over the course of the last few months, I found that certain items really benefited both Paulie and I during the first three months. Here is my list:

  1. Boppy Pillow

The boppy pillow has four uses depending on the child’s age, but from 1 to 3 months, it is used for breastfeeding. I found that this pillow really helped to make breastfeeding more comfortable for me. For the first month, Paul had a tongue and lip tie; making latching difficult. This pillow allowed both of my hands to be free to focus on getting a good latch rather than holding Paul in position. The boppy worked for two positions: the cradle hold and the football hold.

2. Newborn Boppy Lounger

This lounger was awesome. It was comfortable for Paul and it allowed him to lounge any where with us.

3. Rock and Play

My poor baby was colic, and spit up all the time. He was sleeping in the bassinet for the first month, but then he started choking on his spit up. I can’t express how much the Rock and play helped Paulie’s colic and sleep. He rarely spit up when sleeping in it, and he slept between 5 and 7 hours a night. This is a must have for colic babies!

4. Swaddle me

These were great when trying to sooth Paul to sleep. We didn’t have to worry about them unwrapping and they helped him sleep through the night.

5. Mittens

In many of the early pictures of Paul, you will notice scratches on his face. These mittens really helped with preventing him from scratching himself.
