4 Month Favorites

Britax B-Agile Stroller. I'm obsessed with this stroller. It's high quality, but light weight and so easy to fold and unfold. Britax prides itself on the "one-handed" folding/unfolding feature. Not to mention Mira's car seat snaps right into it. Walks are so easy with this stroller!

Aden and Anais swaddle blankets. We now just use these as light weight blankets on hot days. So perfect to throw on Mira in her carseat or when she's napping in her crib.

Pump In Style Advanced by Medela. I've used this ever since Mira was just a couple weeks old, and I still use it a lot. Anyone who plans on breastfeeding should get this. Even if you are a SAHM. You will end up using it at some point to boost your supply. I love that it comes with a battery pack so you can use it on the go (i.e. all the four hour roadtrips we've taken this summer) BUT I got sick of changing the batteries and bought the Vehicle Lighter adapter for Medela Pump-in-Style. Life saving. With that being said, I love having cleaning wipes in the Medela tote bag at all times for when I'm not near soap and water. I used to have the Medela brand, but I decided I didn't need to spend the money on those when I could by "pacifier wipes" which are essentially the same thing, but cheaper. The Medela Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags, 5 Count are also a necessity for sanitizing pump parts. I use it literally every day. Sure beats having to run the dishwasher all the time.

Baby nail clippers. Mira's nails grow constantly. If I don't clip her nails at least every other day, she will scratch herself, and me, and everything.

Boon lawn drying rack. I love having a separate drying rack for baby supplies. It is constantly full of bottles, breast-pump parts, and pacifiers that have been washed or sanitized.
Teething toys. Mira has begun teething so I've got some toys that I can throw in the fridge for her to have a cool sensation to chew on.

Bounce-a-Round Activity Center (similar). Mira really likes it for 5 minutes, but for some reason she whines to get out after that. I don't know why she gets bored in it so fast. But at least she's really excited for that first 5 minutes.

Burp cloths. Mira's been spitting up a lot lately and I'm not sure why, but flannel burp cloths are my favorite. They're big, so there won't be any spit up anywhere but the cloth and since they are flannel, it soaks everything right up.

Baby sunglasses. These are pretty much just for that cliche summer photo op of your babe.

You! Lingerie nursing bra. This is the exact bra I have and it is so amazing; it's high quality, comfortable, and really pretty. I would definitely place this above Victoria's Secret bras. I'll probably wear it even after I'm done nursing. I highly recommend this for all breastfeeding mamas!
