So I’m a little freaked out that time is passing so quickly. I haven’t had time to gather my favorite products for a post for the past couple months, so I’m going blog hopping and finding some for us. I love seeing what has been tried & tested by other mamas and what the coming months may have in store for us.
First off, our March Bluum box arrived today, and I can’t wait to try some of the new products. Here’s a peek at our box. It was catered to Lila’s age, which is a new feature for March.
We got a book, homeopathic teething medicine, a rattle/teether, some skin cream, diaper rash cream, tooth wipes, and some coupons. I think I’ve gotten at least 4 different diaper rash creams in all my Bluum boxes, but Lila has never gotten a diaper rash, so I haven’t tried any of them. Can I substitute a toy or book for next month’s diaper cream?!?!?! If you want to check out Bluum, go here.
At Little Baby Garvin, blogger mommy Jessica (can we be Bloggies? or Moggies? jk) is really funny, down to earth and obsessed with holidays. You might be familiar with her chalkboard baby bump pics that spread through Pinterest like wildfire. If not, check this out. She has great ideas and makes being a work-at-home mommy look so easy! Here are her favorites for month 5 & 6.
I think I might have to pick up the Aden and Anais lovies. I introduced Lila to a lovey last Friday and she keeps covering her face, which makes us nervous. She had been trying to cuddle her bumper pad, so I gave her a lovey and she instantly was cuddling it. She even spit her pacifier out she was so content. (Good advice, mom!) I agree about the fabric books, Lila loves smacking them on the floor or her lap, chewing on them and covering her face with them. I also hear the Easter bunny is bringing some fruit and veggie mesh feeders….
The next blog we are swinging by is Dream Book Design, where Adri has gathered some products for 6-8 months. I do need a shopping cart cover and can’t wait until Lila is sitting in the cart and not in her carrier (in the cart). That will be a momentous day- and I think it is quickly approaching…
Tiny Sneakers Blog features the Ergo, which I love and got for Christmas, but Lila wasn’t a big fan of it. She much preferred the Balboa Baby sling. Here we are with the sling. I honestly haven’t tried it but a couple times. I think she wanted to see out, but maybe couldn’t? I should try it again and see if she will like it. Otherwise I’ll MAKE her like it. Just kidding. or not. I also have great ideas for our new downstairs Family Cave that involve the puzzle foam floor. Love that. We will definitely be getting that. And #3 & 4, to learn how to climb and cruise holding on to something.
