These are a few of my favorite things….

“When the dog bites, when the bees stings, when I’m feeling sad. I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so baaaaaad.” Okay, I’ll stop singing, I’m sure your ears are bleeding.

I haven’t been a mom for long but I have already found some great baby things I couldn’t live without.

First, are Smartwool socks for kids (they have sizes 0-3 months and up) Why these socks you ask? They are the only socks I have found to stay on Pear’s feet and the only socks that actually keep her feet warm in the cold Colorado winter (well, technically it’s still fall). They make cute warm hats too. Love the smartwool.

Second, are bibs made by Mimi the Sardine. These bibs are so awesome! I was tired of Pear’s shirt getting completely soaked by the time we finished a meal. She’s a really messy eater as I imagine most new eaters are. These bibs are made in San Francisco, are water and soil resistant (but you can machine wash them), the fabrics are produced in accordance with strict environmental laws and are Oeko-Tex certified, plus they are super cute, fit around Pear’s (slightly chubby) neck and keep her entire shirt clean. They are a little pricey for bibs (about $15/bib) but will last forever! They have other products too like aprons and lunch bags. Love the mimi.

Third, the the Tripp Trap High Chair made by Stokke. I like the concept behind the design of this chair. It made so much sense to me. Plus, it actually looks nice in your house and Pear will be able to use it throughout her childhood and I am envisioning her using it as a desk chair when she is in school.

Lastly, are these breathable bumpers from Breathable Baby. I found them at Target. Pear stuffs her face against the side of the crib when she sleeps and being the paranoid mother I am (well, at least about sleeping/SIDS) I was so afraid she would suffocate. So found these and have not worried since.

One more, this is for the mommies. I have to give a shout out to the exercise class I attend a few times a week. This class has helped me keep my sanity while being a stay at home mom. The lady who started the class used to train movie stars in LA and NY. She created an exercise class that meets in the local park and you bring your stroller (and the kid(s). What a great concept. You get a wonderful workout (it kicks my a** every time) and your kid gets to spend time outside. It does the both of you good.

Well, like I said I’m a new mom so this is the list for now. I’ll probably add more as Pear grows and I find more great “must haves”

  1. Great, now you have that song stuck in my head. 🙂

    I’m going to check out those bibs. Just wait as Pear gets older. It gets worse. They need to make bibs for heads. 🙂

    We have the Svan high chairs, which are very similar to the Stokke. Love them. And about bibs – whole body bibs, for mama and baby! Just wait…
