I've already talked about a few of Luca's early favorites, and because I love posts like this I'll continue with a few of the smaller (but just as loved) toys and accessories we use a lot. We do still use some of them, but they were really useful in the first few months.
Black and White by Tana Hoban
This link on BabyCenter talks about baby's developing eyesight month by month, and it gives great suggestions on how to stimulate each stage of vision development. This book does a great job of keeping baby's attention, even when they may not love tummy time (like a certain baby I know).
Sassy Crib and Floor Mirror
(obviously not Luca, but here's the tub)
Nosefrida snot sucker
When I was looking for the link for the nosefrida, I came across the only other product made by Fridababy- it's called the Windi, and I'm sort of speechless... (and no, this is not one of our favorites!)
Here's the basic description: The Windi is a single-use catheter that helps babies get rid of excess gas. It's too bad Luca isn't a gassy baby- The cover makes me seriously laugh, and part of me wants to try it because of that:) But if you have a gassy baby, this might be worth a shot!
And the award for totally unnecessary item, but something we love goes to the Prince Lionheart Wipe warmer. I really have no practical reason to love this other than I like the way it looks in our nursery and it keeps the wipes warm and moist (which I find funny because the reviews online sometimes say it dries out wipes- definitely not our experience). It also provides a little light, and is now the only night light in Luca's nursery. It's definitely not a must-have, but if you are gifted it and you don't love the look of a wipe container in your nursery, this will do the trick.
So that's it for the 0-3 month favorites (if you missed part one, click here). I actually have a bunch more, but it's time to move onto the next stage..
Any 6+ month favorites you would like to suggest? Did I mention I can't believe my baby is 6 months old today?!
