Now that Christmas is over, it's time for the more practical items! Here are some of my favorite toddler buys!
1. Stroller – Jogging strollers are the way to go in my book (I am NOT a jogger but they are so much easier to maneuver than conventional ones!) and with accessories like cup holders, adjustable seats and aux ports, it makes any outdoor activity so much more tolerable with little kids. Our double stroller is no longer available but the one shown above has most of the same features!
2. Lollacup – most newer cups claim to be leak-proof and while I don’t think these 100% are, they come pretty close, have a weighted straw to get every last drop and come in a bunch of different colors so each kid can have their own cup! They come with a handle, which is great for younger kids, but the handle can also be taken off so the cups fits in my standard sized cup holders. All of our kids have them and love them.
3. Stretchable sippy tops – I’ve gotten two different brands of these but am so much happier with the guarantee on this brand. If you don't like them or one gets a hole in it in the first year, they will replace/refund the lid! What makes the product great though is that these fit on almost any size cup!
4. Tula Baby Carrier – I actually recommend this for infancy, too but the Tula carrier has been a savior for me. In our standard Tula I can carry M on the front or E on my back and they are comfy and safe. They can be pricey so I actually got mine on a Tula BST Facebook group for $100 and it’s some of the best money I’ve ever spent. They are also on Amazon for the same price!
5. Frog potty – A potty training must. In their room at night-time and in the living room during the day. It’s a simple design with no bells and whistles but is a great price and an invaluable tool during the dreaded potty training days.
6. Huggies slip ons – Sticking with the potty training theme. I need to talk about the Huggies Slip-On diapers. After having so many kids we are strictly a Luvs family after size 1, except for potty training. Unlike pull ups, these diapers can be resealed if it turns out your kid didn’t pee in them like you thought or if while running around one of the sides rips. On Amazon they are only a few cents more per diaper and in my opinion, they are totally worth it.
Hi, I'm Rebecca
I’m a wife, mom to 5 kids, former choir teacher, Christian and advice giver? I can honestly say I never expected to be the one giving advice when I so frequently ask for it, but the advice I’ve received is so valuable and must be shared! Here are some of the things I’ve learned so far!
