Month 3 & 4 Favorites

I am very excited to discuss some of our favorite items from the past two months. While we have been using a few of them from the beginning, their value really paid off this past month.

Trumpette Socks
Our little guy is gearing up to be on the move. His feet are constantly moving and kicking. Luckily, I had found a few pair of Trumpet Socks when I went to my first consignment sale, before P was even born. I didn’t know anything about them but thought they looked cute. I recently attended the same consignment sale and found a few more bags of them. They stay on P’s feet, look adorable and are even affordable at full price. They just came out with a Peanuts Collection (including Snoopy, Lucy and Charlie Brown) that I almost can’t not get 😉

This wasn’t something we had registered for but we got it from an experienced Grandma at my shower. While I am sure a normal wash cloth would do, this is hands down worth it! The feet of the frog cover P’s arms and legs perfectly and keeps his little body warm in the bath. 
I have talked about Sophie in a previous favorites post but we are now in full fledged obsession. I don’t know how it happened, but we now have five Sophie products (+ one more at Bam & Chief’s house)! These are amazing, organic and healthy products for P. While most are considered theethers, they all have a slightly different purpose which makes it great. 

2. Vulli Sophie the Giraffe – So’Pure Vanilla Teether

Snugli Carrier

Originally we had purchased the Becco Butterfly to carry P around in. We tried it a few times and he just wasn’t feeling it. On a whim, I picked up a Snugli at a consignment sale to see if P liked that better. It is amazing what a difference there was. He loves being in this thing. I tried to find it online and it looks like the one I found is a VERY old model. I still want to try the Becco because I have heard such amazing things about it but in the meantime, we plan to continue to use this. We are still wearing him in although twice now we have worn him out because he wanted to look around. 

Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat & Caddy
I know I am always saying that this has been our favorite item, but this car seat and frame stroller really HAS been a top favorite. The car seat base is simple to install and makes getting the carrier in and out easy. Having the infant insert made it very comfortable for P since the beginning. The caddy is AMAZING. It is small so using it in the store or mall is perfect. There is a ton of storage in the bottom (enough for my diaper bag, purse and a few bags) and two drink holders up top. The wheels make it easy to change direction of the caddy with ease so opening my own doors is possible and not so awkward. The caddy also folds up nicely and fits into the back of my car perfectly.

Here are a some of our past favorites that are still used frequently!

    I love the Sophie, it’s just so cute! I totally pointed out the “crack mat” to my mom when we were shopping yesterday haha.

    We have the Bath Luv for AJ. We first got it for our niece when she was just born (she HATED bath time) and this worked wonders for her. I purchased it for my godson Derrick and it worked for him. So, by my excellent powers of deduction 😉 we registered for Baby M. We also LOVE Chicco. I like that it’s so versatile and I just really like the durability. Plus, it was ranked high in the Baby Bargains book. Couldn’t get AJ into Sophie, no matter how hard I tried. Oh well, maybe for #2!
