My Favorite Things: Months 2 & 3


Burp Cloths:  I searched for the perfect burp cloth for quite some time.  I tried many different types/brands and finally settled on the perfect one!  These diaper burp cloths really are the best!  They are much thicker & more absorbent than the standard burp cloth (worthless in my opinion), but not as bulky as an actual cloth diaper.  My sister-in-law recommended these to me, and I'm so glad she did; now, my burp cloth woes are over!  I currently have one set, but I think I might be getting another pack as Liam really gets into his teething phase.

Lambie:  I grew up with a lambie, so I was excited to get Liam one too!  I'm sure there are plenty of naysayers out there to tell me that nothing should be in an infant's crib, but I did my research and felt comfortable with my choice!  I decided to get a shorn lambskin, but it's really a personal choice.  I wanted to make sure it was something that I could wash and not have to dry clean, so some of the cheaper options (like the one from IKEA) weren't for me.  Liam's lambie fits perfectly into his pack 'n play when we are on the go and makes it that much cozier.  I love how it helps to regulate his body temperature, because Liam tends to want his hands free at night and they get cold!  I've also had many parents tell them that a lambie is a must because you can bring it with you wherever you go and your child will still sleep great because they are used to it!

Multi-Use Pads:  I was a little bit skeptical about these when my mom first suggested them, but now I use them daily!  The pads are very absorbent but also thin, so they are super easy to tote around.  I keep one on my changing table to catch those mid-change wees; this way, I don't have to wash the changing pad cover nearly as much.  I also keep one in our bedroom for when I need to change Liam downstairs.  And the third one goes in the diaper bag.  Then, if there happens to be a big mess, it's on the pad instead of my diaper bag!  They are washable and dry fast; I can't say enough good things!

Teethers:  Liam recently started teething (crazy early I know!), but most teethers are still too big or heavy for his little hands & mouth.  I love these rings from Lifefactory!  They are made of silicone, have different textures, and are made in the USA.  I really just love all Lifefactory products in general!  I keep one in the diaper bag & one at home.

Humidifier:  The one pictured isn't the one I have (I have an ugly Walgreens one), but the one I would like to have!  I think it looks sleek, which is something I appreciate if it's going to be in Liam's nursery all the time.  A humidifier has really helped Liam sleep longer and make sure his little nose doesn't get too dry.  The white noise it makes is perfect for when Conor & I are still awake watching a movie or have company over and might be making a little extra noise!  The first night we used it in Liam's nursery he slept 9 1/2 hours straight; we've used it every night since!

Hooded Onesies:  These are the cutest things ever!  Aside from the fashion aspect, I love that these keep my little guy extra warm as the colder months are approaching.  They are have been hard to find, so I only have this one.  It comes as set... but even if you aren't a fan of the pants & other shirt, it's still worth it for the cuteness that is this light blue hooded onesie
