I’m a momma who loves snuggling a baby in jammies. And new jammies? Oh, they’re so cuddly!
Is your baby a drooler? Pick up some of these adorable bandana bibs while you can!

Can a girl ever have to many headbands and bows to accessorize with?
From the super popular Sophie Giraffe to my favorite berry pacifiers – your little one is bound to need one (or two!) of these.
Did you know a rattle is still likely to be one of the first toys your baby can figure out and play with? Grab a cute one and stick it in baby’s Easter basket!

Okay, this Easter idea for baby may be more for you than your baby. But man – does it work wonders!

A soft, cozy swaddle all wrapped up is the perfect gift to throw in the back of baby’s Easter basket.
Depending on your baby’s age, he or she may be ready for a lovey – find a cute one and add it to the fun!
- Peek A Boo Elephant
I’ve had my eye on this sweet elephant for a while now. Just watch the video and I dare you to tell me it’s not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen. My toddler LOVES that it plays peek a boo and he can’t stop smiling around it.
- Stuffed Animal
Can you have too many stuffed animals? Yes. Yes you can. BUT – if your little one hasn’t acquired a big collection yet, one more doesn’t hurt, right?
- Yogurt Bites
Name brand or generic – these were one of our baby’s favorite treats.
Puffs are a great option for babies just starting to eat solids.
- Sippy Cup
A fun sippy cup for your toddler can help encourage water drinking, while being stylish at the same time. We opt for the straw ones, like this, to help develop those motor skills!
- Suction Cup Bowls
Tired of your baby’s bowl tipping over – these suction cup bowls and plates might just be a lifesaver.
- Board Bible
It’s Easter and time to celebrate – I love this board book Bible – it even has lift the flaps!
- Easter Board Books
They make some super cute Easter books – and when they’re interactive? I love them even more for my little one!
- Board Books
Did you know that the more books you have in your house, the more likely your child is to be a better reader? That’s without even reading the books. So bring on the books!
Easter is a sign of spring and bubbles are perfect for that!
If your baby uses a pacifier, this can be a great time to restock your stash.
