Little Man is really starting to play with things and they all go straight to his mouth! Teething has definitely began!! Colton still uses alot of the other months essentials but we introduced a few things this month that he loved and have been great for us as well!! Here are my 4 Month Essentials!
Boogie Wipes Great Grape Gentle Saline – These things are great!! Sometime the little ball sucker doesn’t get the nose completely clear and these just pull out the boogies! Total must have for us; I have a pack in his diaper bag, his changing table in his room and at his changing table downstairs at our house. I like the grape better, the regular ones just smelled funny.
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes – Colton loves this thing! He watches all the colors as it plays the music. He is very into anything that plays music right now. This really distracts him when he starts to get fussy or wants out of his carseat if we are at dinner. It ’s also great because he can hold onto and put in his mouth.
Evenflo ExerSaucer Triple Fun – OH man has this thing been a lifesaver!! It keeps Colton entertained for at least 30 minutes and allows me to get some stuff done around the house. It plays music, talks, and has tons of stuff to look at. It also has three different stages for growth!! We didn’t really use the first stage but the second stage has been great! Once he is standing we will use that stage too! I don’t think they make this exact one anymore but I have linked it to the new one which is pretty much identical but it looks like it has a different hanging toy.
So’Pure Sophie Giraffe Teething Ring – This in one of Colton’s favorite things! He can grip both handles and put it in his mouth. It is soft but still hard enough for hs sore gums. It is a tad expensive for a teether but he loves his regular Sophie so I thought I would give it a try and he loves it! Worth every penny.
Fisher-Price Waterfall Rainforest Soother – This thing is GREAT!! I can set Colton in his crib and turn this on and he is set to go until it turns off. I can get some stuff done in his room while he enjoys the music, sounds and peek-a-boo monkey!! They only thing I wish it did was play longer, it ony plays for like 5 minutes. It says it plays 18 minutes of soothing lullabies but I haven’t figured out how to get 18 minutes! HA
Aden + Anais Sleeping Bag – These have been great for nighttime!! We were using their swaddle blankets but Colton started taking the blankets and putting them over hs face. So I switched him out to these and they have been great! Colton sleeps really well in them and they are just enough coverage to keep him warm.
Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier – With all the allergies going on at our house, this has been so helpful with Colton. It helps keep him less stuffy. I remember the humidifier when I was a kid and they were so loud! This is quiet, you don’t even know it is on and it lasts all night on full blast without having to refill the water.
Board Books – Colton Really likes when you read to him!! He loves to look at the pictures and he grabs at the books and loves to listen to read. These are a few of his favorites: Goodnight Moon, Little Blue Truck, and The Very Hungry Catapillar.
Innobaby EZ Grip Massaging Teether - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!! We received it in our Citrus Lane box and Colton is obsessed with it!! As soon as he sees it he smiles and grabs for it. It is perfect for teething and it has a little rattle as well. The whole thing is a teether and it is super easy to clean. Total must have for us!
Fisher-Price Go Baby 1-2-3 Crawl Along Snail – This is a great toy!! It lights up, sings and plays music! It also has a mirror for Colton to look at himself. It has two different modes; one where it can stay stationary and one where it crawls along when bumped. We have it on the stationary setting. It has really helped getting Colton rolling side to side. He hasn’t shown too much interest in rolling so I am trying to encourage it.
Those are our 4 month must haves and they have been essential for us!! I hope you give them a try and that they work for you little one!!
Until next time!
