Projector and Sound Machine: We started using this around 5 weeks. I don’t think he really noticed it until around 2 or 3 months. That’s when we started putting the little projector on so he could watch the pictures on the ceiling. He would watch it until he fell asleep at night. There are different sound options. Turner likes the rain. But during the day we’ll put on Mozart or Lullabies and he likes that for naps sometimes. I love this little machine!
Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier: We originally had the cool mist humidifier which actually broke. I think I got water in the bottom. Anyway, we decided to get the warm mist since the cool actually made him cold! This is amazing. We put it on every night. There’s a place for an inhalant on the top. We fill it with eucalyptus oil and it smells amazing and keeps his little nose clear!
Playtex VentAire Bottles: We don’t use bottles too often. We give him his night time bottle (otherwise he’ll fall asleep) and I will send a bottle to the nursery with him when I’m at the gym or when I have to go into the office. We started with different bottles, but he would suck them down and cry when he was done. I don’t think he realized he was full since he drank so fast! These are slow flow, so it takes him longer to finish his bottle. That made giving him a bottle MUCH easier!
Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym: He absolutely LOVES this thing. He lays there forever entertaining himself hitting all the hanging animals. He also does tummy time on there and likes to look at the different patterns.
Sophie the Giraffe Teether: He’s not quite at the stage where he’s putting EVERYTHING in his mouth. He pretty much sucks on his hands and blankie non stop! But he does love Sophie. He likes looking at her and biting on her. He thinks she’s funny. Ahhh, simple pleasures!
California Baby Shampoo & Body Wash: I am in love with this stuff. It smells like lavender and it’s nice and gentle with no harsh chemicals! He gets a bath every night (since he was 5 weeks). He absolutely loves sitting in his tub. We only use this on his body every couple days. We pretty much wash his hair every night. He smells so good after his bath, I just want to eat him up!
