A work in progress…
Zutano Booties: I didn’t put socks on Bodhi till he was walking with shoes. These things stay on and they’re cozy and cute!
Dock a tot: We had this with Zane and he slept through the night since he was born. He’s a better sleeper than Bodhi in general but I really think this helped. If you’re planning on co-sleeping, it’s great because you can put it in the bed and it gives them their own little space, but they’re still right there next to you.
Water Wipes: Our favorite wipes when they’re little. We did cloth wipes with Bodhi but we used these with Zane. Definitely the next best thing if cloth is too much to handle.
Braun Ear Thermometer: I LOVE this thermometer! It doesn’t work till about 6 months but once you can use it, you’ll never go back. It’s so quick and no more trying to hold a thermometer under a squirmy baby arm
Sophie the Giraffe: Everyone has it and there’s a reason. It’s the perfect teether.
Nose Frida: A necessity for the first baby cold. (aka snot sucker)
Little Remedies Saline Nose Spray: This goes with the NoseFrida above. Breastmilk works as well but this is great to have on hand.
Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor with Interchangeable Optical Lens: Best baby monitor we’ve found.
Solly Wrap: This is so soft and cozy for the first 2-3 months. When the babe gets a little bigger, I’d recommend a different carrier, but there are so many and they fit everyone so differently. Try them on! (or message me if you want some recommendations)
Dohm Sound Machine: This makes natural white noise. We have had constant white noise in both Bodhi and Zane’s rooms now since they were born. It helps!
