Anneliese is mobile! She started butt scooting across the floor a couple months ago and is unstoppable. She loves checking out the living room, and seeing what she can get into (current favorite is the dog’s water dish or the bathroom trash can).
I partnered with Babbleboxx recently and was able to check out some awesome products to make mom and baby’s life easier and fun.
While Anneliese loves exploring all the solid food we offer, she still enjoys a bottle as a way to wind down before bed. The Philips Avent Anti-Colic bottle with AirFree Vent is perfect for a variety of babies. The AirFree Vent can be included or removed, so one less piece to wash for babies who don’t need the vent!
We have a variety of pacifiers around the house since we weren’t sure what type (or if) Anneliese would like. The Philips Avent pacifier has been a hit, so the Soothie Snuggle is a favorite toy when Anneliese needs a bit of comfort. I appreciate that the pacifier and toy separate for ease of cleaning.
Years ago, my dermatologist recommended that I use CeraVe on my sensitive skin, so it is a natural fit to use with Anneliese. The baby line of products are dermatologist developed to include three essential ceramides. The CeraVe Baby Wash & Shampoo is extra gentle on her skin and leaves it feeling extra smooth after each bath. CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion is our favorite way to end each bath and lock-in moisture before bed.
I don’t know how I got this far through life without knowing all the awesome ways that Witch Hazel can be used. T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel is great for irritated skin, and is dermatologist tested to ensure that it is gentle enough for daily use.
T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Hemorrhoidal Pads with Aloe work to cool and soothe irritated skin. This makes them perfect for post-partem care, and throughout parenthood.
I learned that in addition to toning skin, T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel 100% Natural Astringent can also be used for cleaning my granite counter tops or removing body oils off my jewelry!
Emmett will play outside in any weather. Last year we started thinking about how to make our backyard more year-round friendly so this past summer we added some more roofing to our deck. This roof allows for us to have a dry spot during all seasons.
Stonz offers Baby & Kids footwear that can be used in all seasons! The Stonz Toddler Booties are perfect for the colder months. They feature two adjustable toggles to keep them tight around the ankle and legs, ensuring the cold weather stays out. They have also been designed with children’s foot health in mind and are certified by the Canadian Podiatric Medical Association.
I love the fit of the Stonz Cruiser shoes. The wide opening makes it easy to put on wiggly kids, and the velcro closure makes it easy to adjust to wide or narrow feet.
We have worked to create a good bedtime routine that is predictable so our kids get a chance to wind down before their head hits the crib. Scent has such a strong tie to memory, that is great to add into a bedtime ritual. Oilogic Slumber & Sleep Linen Mist includes Lavender Oil & Chamomile Oil to create a relaxing scent for baby before bed.
Stuffy noses are pretty much guaranteed with young kids. When their little noses start dripping, I look for ways to make them comfortable which generally means lots of baths. Oilogic Stuffy Nose & Cough Essential Oil Vapor Bath is formulated for these times, and creates a soothing bath to help with all their cold symptoms.
Anneliese loves engaging toys, and Lamaze toys fit the bill! She is constantly hugging the Soothing Heart Panda, which gives a gentle vibration while it plays a gentle melody.
The Puffaboo Elephant provides a variety of sensory input from crinkly ears to a puff of air from it’s trunk.
Wacky Giraffe provides lots of entertainment through whacky sounds when it is swung or bashed.
Big brother Emmett loves the Soothing Heart Panda as well and will often hug it when Anneliese isn’t playing with it.
I love discovering new products for Anneliese and myself to enjoy!
