My sweet baby girl is four months old and I can’t believe how fast time has flown by. She has turned into quite the young lady who is full of energy, smiles, and squeals. We have been working on her tummy time and getting her into a daily routine.

Today I wanted to share some of her current favorites and products we have been using on the regular so let’s get started…

Now that Elle is older, she is all about books. We usually read 3 to 4 before bedtime and we especially love the board books. They are durable and Elle loves touching and pointing at the pictures. She also helps me turn the pages. Elle gets so excited when it’s story time that she starts flapping her arms, kicking her legs, and her eyes get really big. It is honestly the cutest thing ever. Some of her favorite titles include: Goodnight Moon, Bedtime Peekaboo, Bathtime Peekaboo, That’s Not My Puppy, Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See?, Pajama Time, Peek-A Who? and Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada.

This playmat is the best. There are a variety of trend-setting patterns to choose from and it beautifully complements our home decor. It is cushioned and colorful, making it the perfect play space and great for tummy time. We currently have these placed in our living room and it easily helped us create an Elle friendly area to play on.

Elle is absolutely obsessed with this thing. It’s like a pacifier and stuffed animal all in one. It’s super soft, cozy, and prevents her pacifier from getting lost, dropped, or misplaced. We also like the fact that it helps Elle with her hand and eye coordination, since she is able to hold it on her own and put it back in if it falls out. It is also easy to clean and extremely durable. She loves the red dog best since red is her favorite color, but it also comes in a wide variety of other colors and animals.

We currently have this attached to Elle’s crib and she has so much fun with it. I usually turn it on during nap time and it helps drift her off to sleep. It plays music, has soft lighting, and fun underwater creatures. It has a drift off feature so that the light and music gradually softens every ten minutes, helping your baby fall fast asleep. There are four different soothing modes and it includes a convenient remote control. We like to call it Elle’s TV and it is so cute watching her eyes light up when we turn it on.

These are the perfect accessory to any nursery or playroom. We use them to hold Elle’s toys, books, and blankets. They have entertaining animal-themed pictures on the  front and are all sturdy enough to sit upright on their own. Elle loves animals so she is such a fan of the fun designs and it’s a bonus that they are extremely functional too. We currently have the sheep, unicorn, rabbit, elephant, and hippo. See how we styled them in Elle’s nursery post here.

Some other brands we are currently loving include:

    I’ve bookmarked this page because I know I’ll definitely be coming back in a few short months, haha; I can’t believe I’m 7mths! Anyway, I’ve been planning on sticking with board books because like you’ve mentioned, they’re more durable and I don’t have to worry about the pages tearing when Baby A grabs them. Plus, I feel it’s better and easier for them to get used to working with their fine motor skills. Also, thank you for mentioning with shampoo/conditioner, as well as detergent you’ve been using. The later is even more confusing and can be SO expensive and you don’t even know if it’s the best option to validate the price. Thanks again, girlie, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
