Hi Friends! it’s been a while since I have done a baby must-haves post! Well, 3 months actually ha! I have done 2 so far, my newborn essentials & my 3-6 month essentials. I missed 6-9 eek! It was a very busy time in our lives so I’m going to include some must-haves from those months in this post!
Baby’s First Year Baby Book: I LOVE this baby book! I received it as a gift from my best friend Mackenzie. It does a lot of the work for you in that it’s super interactive and the illustrations are super cute. I love it!
Baby Touch and Feel First Words Book: Charlee got this book from her Aunt Ashlea and I am telling you it is her FAVORITE book. She absolutely loves it and I always have it in my diaper bag to help keep her entertained. She loves to touch all the animals and items in the book and even learned to say “tickle tickle” from a page in the book!
NUK sippy Cup: At 12 weeks, our doctor told us to not only transition Charlee from formula to whole milk, but to also get her off the bottle and start drinking milk out of a sippy cup. We started by transitioning her to milk and it was surprisingly easy! We mixed 1/2 formula and 1/2 whole milk for a few days and slowly decreased the amount of formula. After a full week she had transitioned! Then the next week we tried the sippy cup and she took to it right away! The Nuk sippy cup worked really well for her.
Oxo-tot Sippy cup: This is another sippy cup that Charlee likes. It is a great way to introduce a straw to your baby!
Native Shoes: These shoes are AWESOME! They are waterproof and made of a rubber material making them super durable. I put these on her when we are heading to the beach or the splash pad or pool! Charlee is currently in a size 4 for reference.
Hair Bows: These are my go-to hair bows for Charlee. They stay put and aren’t too big :). PLUS they are inexpensive!
Kids Ipad cover: I have to be honest and say that Charlee does have some screen time. This only happens if we are traveling or out to dinner and she gets antsy. I do my best to limit screen time but let’s be real, I’m human and sometimes I need some help! We had an iPad that we weren’t using so we bought this
Travel Noise Maker: This is not only the best travel noise maker, but also the best noise maker in general! It gets super loud and drowns out all the noise. It is super small and lasts for HOURS after it’s charged. I highly recommend this!
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! I am so excited because this weekend I am heading down to NC to celebrate my baby sister and throw her a baby shower with my mom! Make sure to follow along on my Instagram stories to see what we planned!
