Favorite Swim Suit
Holipick 2 Piece Bathing Suit – It has ruffles that flatter my less-than-flat tummy and boy shorts that are modest while also a bit sexy. Plus, it comes in 11 different colors and patterns. The best part is that the swim suit is available on Amazon Prime for less than $30!
Supplies for Scalding Breast Milk
My Favorite Breastfeeding Products
Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pad – These are thin and great for going out in public. I felt like they were the least noticeable.
Sports Clip Down Nursing Bra from Motherhood – This is a nursing sports bra and I liked it because it offered a lot of support. I never did anything athletic in it because I prefer to sit on the couch and eat Oreos, but it offered plenty of support for that. 🙂
Original Nursing Bra from Bravado – This bra was super comfy for sleeping.
Wireless Jacquard Nursing Bra from Motherhood – This was my go-to bra for when I was leaving the house. It offered enough support for me, I liked that is was lightly padded enough to hide the nursing pads, and it was prettier than my other nursing bras. One thing I didn’t like was that it came up kind of high and sometimes it would peek out of the top of some of my lower cut shirts.
Gilligan & O’Malley Nursing Tank from Target – This is a cheaper tank top with a simple shelf bra. They cost about $20. I own 5.
Essential Nursing Tank from Bravado – This is the Cadillac of nursing tanks. It costs about $50, but the bra support is much better than the Target tanks. I own one and used to save it to wear when I was going out in public.
Bath & Beauty Products for Baby & Family
Babyganics Foaming Body Wash & Shampoo – I’ve tried a couple different soap options for my kids and so far this one is my favorite.
Tom’s of Maine Toothpaste for Kids – This comes in a fluoride or fluoride free option.
Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soap – This super concentrated soap can be used on your body or in homemade cleaning products. It comes in a variety of scents. Make sure you don’t use the peppermint scent on sensitive body parts (like baby’s bottom) because it can tingle. You shouldn’t experience that with the other scents.
Organic Coconut Oil – You can use coconut oil in the kitchen or the bathroom. I use it on a regular basis as a moisturizer or to keep frizz under control. It can also be used as a diaper rash cream.
Favorite Baby Toys
My Barnyard Friends – This adorable barn comes with 4 little animals inside and they each make noise when you squeeze them.
What Does Baby See? by Begin Smart Books – Books with black, white, and red images are great for the littlest of babies. Babies have limited vision at birth and those images pop out the most to them. Both of my children looked at black and white books as newborns.
What is that? by Tana Hoban – Another of our favorite black and white books.
Sophie the Giraffe Teether – This teether is made from natural rubber and truly is safe for your little one to gnaw on. It makes a fun squeak sound.
Rainbow Stacker by Melissa & Doug – I have many, many items in this list from Melissa & Doug. They make wooden toys with nontoxic ingredients that I trust.
Peek-a-Boo Barn by Melissa & Doug – This toy is so simple, but is perfect for little ones learning to use their hands. The doors open to reveal animals. Noah especially loved this this barn.
Stacking Cars – These cute cars can be played with individually or they can stack on top of each other.
First Vehicle Set – We gave this set to Noah for his first Christmas. I loved that it included a variety of vehicles.
Shape Sorting Cube by Melissa & Doug – A classic shape sorter, but made out of safe wood and paint.
Favorite Puzzles by Melissa & Doug
First Shapes House – Melissa & Doug have several different jumbo peg puzzles that are good for little hands. This is a great “first” puzzle.
Pets in a Box Jigsaw Puzzles – Now that Grace is older, she has advanced to these simple jigsaw puzzles. There are 4 different puzzles in the box and you put the puzzle together on the lid.
Vehicles – A cute and classic peg puzzle.
Magnetic Fishing Game – This puzzle is unique because it comes with a magnet fishing rod. Use it to “fish” for all the pieces before you put the puzzle back together.
Safari – I love the chunky puzzles. The pieces can stand up by themselves on a table top and be used for creative play.
Numbers – This is a big chunky puzzle. Every number has a corresponding illustration. (six cats for number six, seven pigs for number seven, and so on)
Alphabet Nesting & Stacking Blocks by Melissa & Doug – These are made out of a sturdy cardboard, which is nice since they stack up so high. If they fall on someone’s head it won’t hurt much.
Wooden ABC Blocks by Uncle Goose – We gave these blocks to Grace for her first birthday. I did a ton of research. I wanted a safe, nontoxic block. I also wanted it to be a decent size. Melissa & Doug sell some smaller ABC blocks, but I didn’t like the smaller size. These blocks have letters on 4 sides, numbers on 1 side, and animals on 1 side. I love these blocks!
36 Wooden Blocks by Melissa & Doug – I really like these blocks for more creative structures. However, if you have more than one child or if your little one is really into big creations, I would go with the 100 Piece Wooden Blocks Set.
Favorite Kitchen & Play Food
White Vintage Kitchen by Kidcraft – This is another toy that I did a lot of research on before I bought it. I was debating between this one and one by Melissa & Doug. I decided to go with Kidcraft for several reasons. It is made out of wood. It has a lot of doors to open and close. Also, it looks nice enough to be in our dining room. I am really glad we went with this one instead of a cheaper plastic kitchen. Even at 18 months old this was Noah’s favorite toy.
Felt Food Sandwich Set – This cute set comes with a lot of options. Pita bread, regular bread, pickles, lettuce, onion, peanut butter, jelly, cheese, bacon, and more.
Ice Cream Scoop Set – Adorable! It comes with 2 ice cream cones, 4 different scoops of ice cream, a box, and an ice cream scoop. The piece are magnetic so the ice cream sticks to the top of the cones.
Deluxe Wooden Kitchen Accessory Set – Every play kitchen needs a pots and pans set!
Favorite Board Books
Grace loves books. She LOVES them. They are seriously her favorite toy. We have literally read thousands of books together in the past 5 years. These are some of our tried and true favorites.
