Mommy Favorites: 3-6 Months

Lucy is rounding the corner on 8 months now! It's so bittersweet. I've found a lot of different favorites in the last 3 or 4 months and I thought I'd share them with my fellow mamas. Here they are:


Britax B Agile Stroller // This is the new 2015 version--I have the 2014, so I guess there could be minor differences, but as for my 2014 one, I absolutely love it! It's a breeze to pack up and put away, it fits easily into my car or SUV and it's one of the smoothest and easiest to steer that I've ever tried! Super lightweight, even with the carseat on top, so this one wins over and over in my book.

Munchkin White Hot Safety Baby Spoons // I don't always heat up Lucy's baby food--in fact, I try not to so that she doesn't become spoiled. If we're on the go I can't always heat it up, and I would hate for her to become picky! But when I do reheat, these spoons are wonderful because they turn white when the food is too hot. Definitely good to have on hand.

Gerber Puffs // Lucy is starting to eat more and more table foods (she especially loves vanilla wafers and french fries. We try to limit those..), so I like to have little snacks on hand for her to practice her chewing skills. While we don't have a working dishwasher, I'll often stick her in the high chair with a tray full of Cheerio's or Puffs while I hand wash at the sink. I prefer Puffs over cereal because I don't have to worry so much about her choking while I'm too busy to notice; the Puffs dissolve quickly and are a good, small size. They also come in lots of different flavors which are fun for her to try.

Chicco Polly High Chair // Again, I have an older version of this (the chevron one, passed down from my youngest sister), but I think they're pretty similar. It's not too much different than your average high chair but it has one feature I really love: a plastic tray on top of the tray. Basically a lid for the tray that can easily be removed for quick clean-up and popped right back on in time for dinner. It makes cleaning up messes a breeze and can even fit in the dishwasher if you have a real disaster!

Crinkle Tag Toy // We have a couple of these crinkle toys. They're basically just little fabric loveys with a layer of plastic in the center that creates the sound of a plastic grocery bag when scrunched. Lucy loves them and they are great church toys since the crinkle isn't so loud that it disturbs the entire congregation. I especially like the kind with the tags on the sides for hanging on activity mats and car seats.

Honest Company Baby 2-in-1 Shampoo & Body Wash // I love everything from the Honest Company, and even though this is a little pricey for baby shampoo, it's done wonders for Lucy's skin. We started with Johnson's but were struggling to get rid of her newborn cradle cap even after several months. Then a pediatrician told us that Johnson's is terrible for their skin and super drying! We tried out the Honest kind and her cradle cap was gone in one wash! It was amazing! We've been using it ever since and plan to continue. It lathers really well, so you really get your money's worth and it smells like an orange creamsicle! Delicious!

Munchkin Teether Toys // We love our teether toys! Lucy still hasn't really started teething (she'll be 8 months on September 12th...I'm hoping I don't have too much longer to wait), but she really likes to chew and bite. She usually prefers a finger or a knuckle but also love these hand and foot shaped teethers. They're easy for her to grip and firm enough for her to really bite down. When she starts teething for real I can pop them in the fridge before playtime to help comfort her gums.
