Thoughts, experiences, and helpful tips on baby gear.
Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing
Baby J has slept in the Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing since he was a newborn. I try not to rely too much on the swing, but its been a really good tool for getting him to sleep sometimes. We started out putting him in the bassinet, but it resulted in lots of spitting up. This cradle swing puts him at a little incline to combat the reflux that many babies often have. Plus it has nice music and white noise and a cute mobile.

Johnson's No More Tears Baby Shampoo
I love the good ol' fashion Johnson's No More Tears baby shampoo. I was using the Johnson's Head-to-Toe baby wash for Bel, which seemed to work well. But as her hair started coming in, Daddy noticed that it looked frizzy and unkempt. I decided to try the Johnson's shampoo because I had a sample bottle. And I was amazed at the results. Her hair was beautiful and shiny!

I actually started using it myself because I was taking showers with her. And lo and behold, it did the same for my hair. Better yet, I started noticing new hairs growing, which continued. Could be coincedence that my hair was going through its growth phase at the time. But needless to say, I am continuing to use this shampoo. I have also used the Johnson's lavender baby shampoo, and that seems to work just as well, but I prefer the scent of the original shampoo.

Water Wow Doodle Book

At 21 months, Bel has been getting bored with her toys. She has taken interest in playing with other children, rather than by herself. She's even given up coloring with crayons, and even markers. So I found this Water Wow Color With Water book, and it's been one of the best $6 I ever spent. It has several pages that you can color with this "pen" that you fill with water. They squeeze the pen as they scribble, and the paper turns color! It's amusing to Bel because it's something different, and fun to watch the colors appear as she scribbles. You can even reuse it over and over again. We got the princess Water Wow book because it's all they had at the store, but there are many other ones online. I might just have to order a few more. It would be great to take to restaurants, too!

Toddler's First Band Set

She got this Toddler's First Band Set as a birthday gift for her first birthday. I come from a musical family and thought it would be great for her to have some instruments, too. As with the majority of her toys, she likes for me to play with them with her.

So for these instruments, which are all types of shakers or rattlers, I turn on a fun song and dance while shaking them. And she just has a blast dancing and shaking the instruments along with me. She has her favorite song, which for now is "Rhythm of Love". She'll go and grab a shaker and then point to the iHome and ask us to play that song and dance with her.

Weebles Tree House Playset

We just got this Weebles Tree House for Baby Bel today. She loves it so far. But for now, she likes me to play with it with her. It's for 18 months and older, and she is almost 18 months, so I thought it would be perfect for her. She loves the slide and hiding the weebles behind the door. She is still learning how to crank the escalator.

The set came with two weebles. But we had another set of weebles that we had bought a while back. It was fun to load the escalator with all 4 weebles. I gave them the names of some of her friends so she could do some role playing.
