It’s truly amazing how quickly babies grow out of things and I constantly feel like I need to be buying something new to keep up! Amazon is a god-send for parents because we can quickly and easily order what we need, right when we think of it, and have it delivered right to our door. I pretty much get everything I need that’s baby related on Amazon, so I wanted to share some of our latest favorites for the 5-8 month range! Find the full list below + shopping links for what JW is loving right now!
Ryan + Rose Paci: Not only do I love the simple look of these pacis but JW also loves them too! We especially love that they double as teethers too!
Rocking Horse Swing: I love the simple + minimal look of this swing for outside and it’s great for children up to 44 lbs. so he can use it many months to come (hopefully!)
Paci Clip: My favorite neutral + simple paci clip that I use with the Ryan + Rose pacis above! This is a lifesaver when we’re in the car or on the go, so I can easily find and grab his paci when needed!
Wooden Toy: I was skeptical when I first saw this, but JW LOVES this toy. He is mesmerized by all the little nooks and crannies and also loves chewing on it. It’s stretchy, bendable, and can entertain him for quite a while!
Non-Slip Socks: Baby socks are just completely impossible to keep up with! I feel like there are already a million lost all throughout my house. These are great basic socks though that you can buy in a big pack and they have non-skid grip on the bottom so he can play, bounce, and not slip on our hardwood floors!
Skip Hop Activity Center: This is the cutest little baby activity center I could find (not totally ugly and obnoxious colors) and JW loves playing in it! It’s also adjustable as he gets older and can turn into a play table!
Highchair: I wanted a highchair that was super easy to wipe down everywhere and also something with simple and clean lines that I didn’t mind leaving out in my kitchen- and this one is both! All the parts are super easy to wipe down, the straps are padded and comfortable, and the tray is easy to slide in and out.
Bamboo Bowl + Spoon Set: We love these simple little bamboo bowl + spoon sets as we’re trying new solid foods! They are cute, easy to clean, and have suction on the bottom so JW can’t knock it off the table/highchair!
Marpac Dohm Sound Machine: So I’m kind of obsessed with sound machines and keep buying new ones, but it’s helpful to have multiple- especially for traveling and having throughout different rooms in the house. I had heard great reviews about this one and I do love it! It has the soothing sound of a fan without any of the cold air. Although it doesn’t crazy loud like some sound machines, it’s simple, easy to use, and plenty loud for most environments.
Marpac Hush Portable Sound Machine: Another sound machine and another favorite item. This is such a necessity if you’re constantly on-the-go like me and need your baby to sleep often in the car or stroller. This is rechargeable and has great battery life, different sounds to choose from, and gets plenty loud as well.
Organic Sunscreen: Now that pool season is here, sunscreen is a must! We love this organic mineral sunscreen that is safe and gentle for baby.
Noodle + Boo Wash: JW LOVES bathtime and this is our favorite body wash / shampoo combo that smells SO amazing but is also super gentle.
Woombie Swaddle: The Woombie is still our tried and true favorite for sleeping, so we got several more in larger sizes! What I love is that this swaddle is convertible to arms out, which is how we are using it now that JW can flip over. It keeps him feeling secure but also gives him plenty of mobility when needed.
Mesh Feeders: JW is not a huge fan of solid foods right now and these mesh feeders are just about the only thing we can get him to eat a lot out of. He loves being able to feed himself with these and it really reduces the risk of choking. These are pretty easy to clean as well and are dishwasher safe too.
Sophie Teether: We love all our Sophie things but this teether is one of our latest favorites. Just the right size for baby to easily grip and perfect for teething on safely.
Jolly Jumper: This is another fun toy/activity for baby to get some exercise! I love that this can easily fold up to store and you can also set it up anywhere- indoors or out! JW started using this super young but enjoys it even more now that he can really get the jumping going.
Bandana Bibs: Teething means ALL the drool, so it’s necessary to have some cute bibs handy. These are cute enough to wear with regular outfits and they’ll look like an accessory instead of an ugly bib!
OXO Tot Bib: While the bandana bibs are my favorite for everyday wear, this one is a must for when baby is beginning to eat! SO easy to clean and catches everything and anything baby might drop or spit out. I love the simple look as well.
