TREASURED: Baby’s first six months


Miracle Blanket | Even though I never truly figured out how John slept best, these swaddles proved to be the best. And I tried them all!

Gerber long sleeve side snap shirts | These little shirts are the easiest things for the baby to sleep in. I can assure you that it is much easier to quickly feed and change a baby if all you have to do is unswaddle them and then have the diaper right there. No buttons. No fuss. I also never worried about him being chilly because he was swaddled so tightly.

Aiden and Anias bamboo swaddles | These are the softest blankets ever. Even though I have never used these to actually swaddle my baby, they are perfect for so many reasons. Carseat covers. Nursing Covers. Lose blankets for warm or cool weather. The feather print is just my all time favorite thing ever.

Evenflo glass bottles with Dr. Browns nipples | I am a big advocate for glass bottles and these are the simplest, most affordable, no fuss ones you can find. The nipples that come standard are a bit hard in my opinion so I used the Dr. Browns nipples. These are also wonderful because they fit right onto the Medela pump so you can pump and store them right in the refrigerator with ease.

Gerber Soothe Drops, previously were the Bio Gia drops | One of my dearest friends brought me these right after John was born and I definitely noticed a difference in his demeanor when we ran out. They are pricey and only last a month, but for a fussy baby, they helped a lot.

Zany Zoo wooden activity cube | This was a gift for William but John has loved it for a long time. Once he started sitting up, I would place him in front of it and he loved playing with it. Now he pulls up on it and loves to stand. It is also very heavy so you do not worry about it toppling over or moving when the baby puts their weight on it.

Kickee Pants footie pajamas | Best. jammies. ever. And sometimes they turn into day clothes because they are just so soft. Perfect for every age.

Marina White Noise device | John responded best to loud, true white noise and this machine is the best one. The Dohm is great but was not loud enough for our finicky babe.

Aiden and Anis bibs/burp cloth | I loved these because you can either drape them over your shoulder or snap them around the baby’s neck like a bib. John was a horrible spitter-upper and this proved to cover all areas no matter which way he was facing when he spit up.

10 Elephant hamper | Perfect hamper for any nursery.

11 Honest Company diapers | I am a big Honest Company lover! I get the all white diapers, even though they do have the cutest prints, because I did not like when I could see the designs through the clothing. I do love these diapers, however, for the first month or so I feel that they are too “stiff.” I use the Pampers Newborn Swaddlers when they are tiny and then beginning using the Honest ones when they are about 6 weeks old.


Not pictured | Having a 2 year old to chase after meant that baby John spent a lot of time in the Baby Bjorn Carrier. It was my lifesaver. I have every single baby carrier on the market [when you have colicky babies you literally will do/try/buy anything to try to find what works best]. This carrier has been our favorite mainly because he loves to face out! Also, when I transistioned John into the crib I found that his sheets were so cold [it was winter time] so I bought some soft chenille crib sheets and they are amazing.
