There are so many must have baby products that I have used almost every day over the past couple of months. Today I want to share them with you! I love reading these sorts of posts because I discover most of my favourite baby products through the recommendations of other Mama’s.
I have previously shared my favourite baby products from zero to three months and three to six months if you are currently pregnant, or have a younger baby! Or if you are looking for more toy recommendations, check out my nine favourite baby toys for nine months.
Lion Stacking Rings (£16, John Lewis) | Freddie’s Granny bought this for him for Christmas and at first he loved playing with the different rings and watching us stack them. I was surprised by how quickly he figured out how to add them on to the stick! This toy has been amazing for developing his pincer grip and co-ordination.
Hide & Squeak Eggs (£7.49, Amazon) | These eggs are so well reviewed and I can see why! Freddie loves taking them out and putting them back in, opening and closing the lid and carrying them around. It is also another great learning toy in terms of putting the tops of the eggs on and eventually, learning colours and shapes.
Emergency Vehicles Toy Cars (£10, John Lewis) | We have had these cars since Freddie was around nine months old but in the last couple of months they have become his absolute favourite, They are little enough for small hands to hold and they light up and make noise too. It is so cute watching Freddie push them along the floor or tables!
Mum2Mum Wonder bib (2 pack £16.95, Amazon but they are cheaper in Waitrose!) | My lovely sister picked one of these up for Freddie and they are the nicest bibs I have ever tried. They have a really thick towelling front with a waterproof back and the neck fastening is really secure and fits well around Freddie’s neck. We have the navy and the teal and I love that they are simple colours without a garish pattern!
Vital Baby Soft Tip and Grip Spoons (£2.49, Amazon) | I haven’t found the perfect spoons for Freddie to self feed yet. However, we have been using these and they have been great for helping Freddie learn to feed himself.
Pure Cotton 1.6 Tog Sleeping Bag (£35 for two, M&S) | I have tried a few different sleeping bags for Freddie but the Marks & Spencer ones are the best I have found. They are super soft and wash beautifully.
Ergo Baby 360 Baby Carrier (£115, Amazon) | I have mentioned the Ergo carrier many times on this blog but I thought it was useful to add that Freddie is nearly a year old and we still use it! My husband wears Freddie a lot at the weekends and I wear him when I walk the dogs. He still fits in it really well and as we have used it since he was three months, that’s pretty impressive!
Baby Suede Booties (£12, Marks & Spencer) | I wanted to include these because we use them when Freddie is in the Ergo. They keep his feet super warm and they look lovely too.
Zipped Sherpa-lined Hoodie (£16, Marks & Spencer) | I have unintentionally included lots of good old M&S items in this post! Anyway, we have had this hoodie in two sizes and two colours now and I love it. It keeps Freddie really warm and is great to throw on if we are going between the car and indoors.
Anbesol Liquid (Lloyds, £5.03) | Anbesol has been really helpful when Freddie has been teething and it is definitely worth a try if your little one is struggling!
Where’s Mr Lion? Felt flap book (£4.99, Amazon) | Freddie loves this book and it is the perfect way to introduce your baby to lift the flap books. I love that the felt is sturdier than card so when Freddie was learning the concept it ensured he didn’t accidentally tear them!
The Lion Inside Boardbook (£5.49, Amazon) | We have had this book for a little while now and it is my favourite. It has a great moral message and the imagery is beautiful as well. I bought the boardbook version because it is far more robust!
I really hope this post is useful and that you may discover a new must have baby product! If there is anything you love that you think I would too, then please let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading and see you on Friday,
