favorites...

Last weekend Cullen and i went to BuyBuyBaby.
That place was like heaven for Momma and Baby C!
dreamy...
Yeah, i took a pic ;)  I was so excited when I found out MN had one of these stores!
We found lots of fun stuff! 

I have seen some other Momma's sharing what their favorite things are for themselves/their babies so I thought I would do it as well.
 I like reading what other Mom's/Baby's like, gives me ideas on stuff that we might need ;)

I would say Cullen's favorite thing to do right now is take a bath!
He LOVES bath time!
This chair makes bath time so much fun for him!
I would recommend it to anyone.

We got these new organic toy cars for bath time at BBB.
soft, colorful and chewable ;)

When it comes to eating Cullen is a disaster area!
I found these bibs at BBB.
No idea why I waited SO long to get water proof bibs!!  
They are awesome and they catch all the food that misses C's mouth.  They don't need to go through the laundry, just a quick wash them in the sink.

We have found these cups to be C's favorite!
For the longest time we only had the orange cup but I found another one at BBB so he had to have it.  Cullen drinks water out of them throughout the day.

Some of Culley's favorite snacks...
The organic puffs from Babies R Us are on sale a lot of the time 3/$5!  Such a good deal! The Earth's Best Pop Snax are like mini rice cakes for babies.  I break them up a little and Cullen really likes those as well.

My bloggy bestie recommended this product...
Definitely a must have and new favorite item. 

Love these 3 items and I use them countless times a day...
I wash my hands, then use the disinfectant and then the lotion.  

Not exactly a favorite thing but it works like a charm and I still use it 3 times a day!  
Ladies i'm not sure if you know this but if you need to buy a pump check with your insurance company first and see if they will cover some of the cost.  My insurance company covered 80% of my pump! I only had to pay $50 for it!

All my twitter friends recommended this car seat...
we got ours in all black
Cullen outgrew his baby carry cradle (weight wise) when he was 6 months old and this car seat has worked perfect for us.  I would also recommend it!  It does take rocket science to get it all put together and installed in a car though ;)

Cullen's new walker/activity station from his Grandparents...

So much fun and much safer than a walker, our doctor told us no walkers.


I've filled Cullen's with bananas, peaches, frozen peas, frozen carrots.  
The bags flip inside out for easy emptying and washing.

Those are just some of our favorite things that we use on a daily basis!  I'm sure there are many things I left out ;)

p.s. don't forget to SHOP CULLEN'S CLOSET 
thanks to the ladies who already made purchases!!
p.p.s. i have a GIVEAWAY coming up on friday!

Cohen has the same carseat and we love it, too!

We have been using the waterproof bibs since he started solid foods and they make cleaning so much easier, don't they?!

We don't have a BBB here but my sis in law loves hers and talks about it a lot!

i LOVE that walker/activity station! That is awesome! Also, I think I might have to get EG one of those bath chairs! She loves the bath and sits up well, but she scares me to death because she moves around so much and now that she stands she is always wanting to pull up in the tub! That would make my life SO much easier! And huge props to you for still pumping that much! I despise pumping! I will only pump when I'm at work! Love this post!

We have the same activity table and Liam just loves it! We also have the same sippy cup and bibs! Great minds must think alike, haha :) And I really want to get that bath seat! The link is to Sears - is that where you bought yours? If so, I'm going to have to find one near us because I've looked at BRU, Target, and BBB and none of them carry those seats!

Love these! And Amen for BabyGanics products! They always do BOGO Free at Babies R Us, so I always stock up!!! They rock and I don't feel bad having the boys lick things like the fridge hahahaa!!!

I'm so jealous of people that have Buy Buy Baby. You found some great stuff!

Annie said...

We dont have that store...boo!!

Plastic bibs are a MUST for us at mealtime...they make life WAY easier!!

Cully is the CUTEST!!

Kate said...

Love Buy Buy Baby! We have one just a few minutes from us! And AMEN about the Britax car seat! Hardest thing EVER to install! My husband just took ours to a car seat check to have them do it.

Lana said...

Oh we love Buy Buy Baby!! Man, I did not know insurance might pay for a breast pump! I have that exact same one and paid quite a pretty penny for it!

Jen said...

Hi Annie! I wanted to reach out to you; I'm going to be starting a new feature on my blog with lots of tips and advice from other Mom's. Please LMK if you'd be interested in sharing any ideas on the topics I have going. Shoot me an email if so and I'll send you some possible topics. Doesn't have to be anything super formal; even a bulleted list is fine. LMK! :)

I have never been to a BBB. BUT, I will be ordering one of those sippy cups from amazon right now :) I have tried SOOO many cups with ANika and she WONT take any. The girl will walk where ever she wants to go but cant seem to figure out a darn sippy cup! haha.
LOVE the little munchkin food holders too.

We have a BuyBuyBaby about 45 minutes from here, but I have yet to venture in since ya know...I don't have a baby.
