Gifts for Baby

We have recently welcomed two new babies into the family.  So exciting!  

With Christmas fast approaching I thought it would be suitable to post a few of my favourite baby products, for those new Mom's out there, and for those of you looking to buy baby gifts (Just click on the title, or picture to link directly to the website).

The Beaba Baby cook is an all-in-one steamer, blender, warmer and defroster used for making baby food. 

Small, practical and easy to use.  As the steamer doubles as a blender, so there is very little clean-up afterwards.  I honestly love this little gadget so much!!

Available at Williams-Sonoma (Williams-Sonoma has a video to demonstrate how the babycook works).

#2 Baby Cubes  
After pureeing food, I stored them in these baby cubes.  They are available in 3 different sizes (I only purchased the 70ml containers, but I feel like the 30ml would be so, super- cute).  
These storage containers are fantastic for so many things, so even if you aren't making your own baby food they are still great little containers:
*Snacks (Cheerios, raisins, cherry tomatoes)
*Salad dressings 
*individually portioned powder baby cereal
*Pacifier case -I know they make pacifier cases, but I lose everything..  One pack of baby cubes provides me with 8 pacifier cases :)
*Piping tips
*Hair pins

I'll be honest.  This chair is a little pricey, {but in my opinion} worth every penny.  Especially if you plan on having more than one child.  My only regret with this high chair is not buying it sooner.  
These utensils are great. They bend, making it easier for baby to get food into their tiny little mouths.
This bowl is so fun.  Not only is it spill proof, it will keep your children entertained.
I love that this sippy cup doesn't leak!  Easy to clean, and best of all, it's stainless steal.
We had a lot of teething pain in our household, so the following were our favourite teething products:

There is a reason this little guy has been around for so long... babies love him!
Another Vulli product that my kids Loved was this Sophie teething ring.  I loved it too because it was so compact and easy to pack.  

Multi-textured and made entirely of silicone.  Another popular teether in our house!
Children's mittens with long stretch cuffs that keep them from falling off.  Need I say more?
A small snuggle blanket for baby made of minky.  So soft and cuddly.
When my daughter was born she had the absolute worst diaper rash. We tried (what seemed like) every diaper rash cream available in Canada, including a Doctor prescribed cream, and nothing worked. 

We finally discovered Triple Paste, and in my opinion it is the BEST diaper cream there is. 

Unfortunately, it is not available in Canada, but you can have it shipped (which is what we did).
For those planning on formula feeding, these are really handy.  Just pack your baby bottles filled with water (I usually heated the water bottles before leaving the house and placed them in a travel bag).  When needed, add your powder formula to the bottle.  So much easier than packing pre-made formula bottles and having to worry about keeping them cold and then heating them up.  A lot less waste as well.
A couple of years ago, my Sister-in-Law and I went to the One of a Kind show in Toronto.  This is where I first discovered P i ' l o and I fell in love with everything. 

I didn't know what to buy because everything was so beautiful, and I left the show without a single thing.

There is nothing worse that Non-buyers Remorse.  That's what I call it when you wish you bought something and didn't.  At least with buyers remorse you can return the item if you later discover you didn't really like it.

On Christmas morning, my Sister-in-Law surprised me with this adorable Tooth Fairy pillow from pi'lo which she purchased after I left the show (isn't she the sweetest?!)...

This adorable little pillow has a small pocket where you can store the tiny little tooth and keep it safe for the tooth fairy.
I have a few other favourites, but now it's your turn.  what are your favourite baby products?

Happy Holiday Shopping and thanks for stopping by!
