Hello! So it's been a few months since I wrote a mommy blog post with the last post being the 5 things I had used the least months into motherhood.  This post will share the few items I have found myself using so much this first year of motherhood and this is just my opinion and not sponsored.  I should just start by saying Ella is now walking all over the place haha, saying some words like dada, thank you, oh oh, this, good girl (because I say it a lot) and it's so amazing to watch the milestones.  Here are some of the items:

1) Sterilizer: here

2) Drying Rackhere, here

Munchkin High Capacity Drying Rack, White
3) Bath Tub: We used this fisher price one here, here and I had liked it because it transitions from new born baby as they get months older.  When they are newborn, it has a net sling piece that you lay the baby in it but as they grow older, it has a sitting piece and then can be removed for just the bath.

4) Dock a tot sleeper: We got it from here and I'd thought this would just be a trendy item but Ella loves it and used it for months.  It is good to use when just spending time with them and they lay there even when in the bed because it gives a barrier.  Follow the recommendations by the dock a tot company though and always follow the recommendations of your child's doctor/provider.

5) 8 oz bottles: For bottles, I have found that the Dr Browns bottles here, here, here worked great for us.  It has a middle fully vented piece in the middle which reduces air bubbles and reduces gassiness and fussiness in my opinion.  I would recommend to get the 8 oz bottles even when they are at 2 ounces because they can grow with the bottle with 3 ounces, 6 ounces etc.  Also it has a nice kit which can be purchased and includes bottles, nipples, a pacifier which Ella loves, a travel case for formula and other goodies. Dr. Brown's Original Bottle, 8 ounce, 4-Pack

6) Baby Monitors/Camera System: We have 2 different types including this here, here but some options are here, here, here and I feel these give you some slight peace of mind when baby is in another room sleeping and you are getting any other work done.  I do say it should never replace actually going to check up on your baby physically often but in moments when you aren't doing that, I have used these a lot.  Camera systems have become so advanced now that you can leave the house with someone while they are there and can watch through your phone app.
