Let's Talk Accessories- Babies

When I was pregnant, I researched and researched and researched. I bought one kind of bottle, then bought another kind.  I stored Baby A's food in BPA-free containers and did even more research when looking for sippy cups.  It's a lot of work.

I have been tucking some links away for baby #2 (which will be wayyyy down the road), and I thought I'd share them with you!

  1. Wean Green Glass Cubes-  Forget the ice cube tray and tupperwear----these are glass containers!  The tops lock on and are BPA, PVC, Phthalates, and Plasticizer free. The glass is 100% recyclable and sustainable and is made to handle extreme heat and cold. Even better- each cup includes measuring lines so you can easily tell how much baby has eaten. Cool right?
    2. Evenflow Cozy Glass Bottle- We went with plastic (BPA-free) bottles, but now I wish we used glass bottles, and I plan to for the next baby.  They come with nice colorful cozies so they are protected if (and when) they fall!

      3. Speaking of bottles, we used The First Years Breastflow bottles and really liked them. They use a double nipple system that requires baby to compress as well as suck to mimic breastfeeding. Pretty cool, huh?

        4. Pura Stainless Bottles- Speaking of neat bottles, I have no experience with these at all, but take a look!

        5. Raz-berry Teether- Our favorite by far was the Raz-berry Teether. Pop it in the fridge and it's ready to go just a short while later. Baby A still enjoys these when cutting new teeth, and also if she's fallen and bumped her lip.

        6. Chan Pie Gnon Teether- Bizarre name, yes, but my four-month-old nephew LOVES his.  My sister-in-law got it as an alternative to the ever popular teether Sophie the Giraffe.

        7. The Magic Bullet- This was a wedding gift to us (the hubby HAD to register for it), and I found it really helpful in pureeing small amounts of baby food. I would take whatever we were eating and blend it to a good consistency for Baby A. Easy.

        8. Feeding Baby Green- Lastly, the most important tool I have found was this book. I truly believe my daughter eats everything and anything thanks to the information in this book.  It makes the case for making your own food so your child grows up eating actual bananas, not some pureed, sugared version of bananas.  There were no texture issues with Ava because she already knew what bananas felt like when we stopped mashing them.  I did not follow the checklist in the back to  a "T", mainly because I was still learning about vegetables myself, but it really did help us!

        What are you favorites?
