Favorite Things

6 Jan

I have been meaning to sit down and write this for awhile but of course just haven’t had a minute to do it. The days just fly by with the babies! Some days I am lucky if I get to finish my morning coffee or eat! I have to get better about making the time to do eat though.

Now that’s it’s been two months, I wanted to share some of the things that we love. I would roll my eyes when my mom’s friends would laugh at my long-ass registry and now I can see why. There were so many things that I thought would be a necessity and wound up never even using. I am learning that less is definitely the way to go.

  1. Amazon Mom/Subscribe & Save – Hands down the best thing ever. It’s such a huge relief to just have diapers, wipes and formula shipped home. 30% off and 2 Day-Free Shipping, can’t beat it.
  2. Dr. Brown’s Formula Mixing Pitcher – I have 4 of these pitchers and it’s such a time-saver. Having bottles and formula ready to go at all times makes my life easier. If only they could make the pitchers a little bigger to reduce the spilling.
  3. The First Years Babypro Quick Serve Bottle Warmer – At first I didn’t think we needed a bottle warmer, I just kept warming them up in a bowl of hot water. I had the Tommee Tippee warmer and hated it. We had to switch Olivia’s formula and it was so thick it wasn’t warming up as fast. This is quick, cheap and I love the handy water dropper.
  4. Boon Grass Countertop Drying Rack – I have 2 of these on my counter and love them. They don’t take up too much space, look nice and I can pile it up with bottles and their million pieces. \
  5. Fisher-Price Deluxe Infant-to-Toddler Comfort Rocker, Alpha Fun – Originally we had the Bright Starts Comfort Bouncer but the mobile never snapped in and as they got older I knew that 1) they would pull on the mobile and 2) would get bored. This one goes up to a higher weight and they love all the colors.
  6. Seventh Generation Diapers & Wipes – We switched to these pretty quickly after Olivia developed a burn from the Dry Max diapers. They have been great, no more diaper rash issues.
  7. Munchkin – seriously everything I have purchased I love.

I have a few more things to add when I have time.
