You’ve made it half way through your first year as a parent! HOORAY! Now what do you do once you’re past the newborn stage? After 6 months the baby becomes less of a potato and a little more fun to be around.

Sunscreen, after 6 months of age you can use sunscreen for your adventures! A large Picnic blanket will keep your play area clean. Baby Makes Three, because the hardest part of being a parent is being a partner. Mama, and the Dada book are great and easy reads for baby. The zigzag car toy teaches cause and effect.

Space Adventure Pound Bench is verstile fun to experience music and cause & effect. Mushroom Teether (or all the teethers really) will be needed. Toothpaste and a finger brush to start teaching those good habits. Motrin and Tylenol if you choose to help with post-shots soreness and teething, and the fevers that come home from daycare.

Aveeno lotion is awesome. MAM pacifiers, don’t forget to size up after 6 months! Stroller fans are perfect for summer. Halo vibrating bedtime soother will help sooth fussy babies, help breakup congestion, and is portable. Vech walker, this is the perfect age to get a push-type walker toy.

Reuseable Swim diapers go over the disposable ones to splash pad play dayte and swim lessons. Nested Bean Sleep sack is amazing. I love this brand. Munchkin 360 cups help transition from bottles to cups. They don’t spill but do take some babies a while to get the hang of them.

Graco playard was used as a spare for when baby sleeps at Oma’s house. Graco convertible car seat is perfect for extended rear-facing. Our chunky baby grew out of her infant seat at 7 months. Dr Browns options bottles were perfect for our baby, and we had to buy extras for daycare. Haba wood beads are huge, and perfect for small hands. Ribbon toy because babies are really cats.

Crayola My First Tablet is perfect for travel and restaurants. Oball cars are always fun and easy for toddlers and babies. B. Toys stacking stones are beautiful. My First Quiet Book fatures a bunny that rattles and still tells a story. Manhattan Toys Click Ball helps develop fine motor skills. I like playing with it too!
