Whether looking for the essential or the unexpected, there are baby items made especially for every activity. Make yourself (or a friend) the most prepared parent, with something special for every hour of the day.
Mealtime is made easy with the right items for baby food preparation. A bottle steamer gives a good clean before use. Utilize a formula maker before filling it up. Make sure it stays the right temperature with the aid of a bottle warmer and the check of a thermometer. Older children can skip the bottle but stay spill free with sippy cups. Use a baby food maker for the main course, keeping the final product easily stored and ready to be eaten in food containers. Lay down children’s plates and baby flatware before serving up a delicious dish. Later in the day, a snack cup can hold a yummy treat, like something made with love from a yogurt maker. Find useful aids for cleanup, like bottle drying racks.
If mealtime was messy, bath time will be appreciated. Pick up a faucet cover and bath toy organizer to liven up tub time. After toys are put away, pull out a hairbrush and comb, or prepare for a less aquatic form of play. Keep tiny tots entertained on an activity mat or with a soft book. When they get tuckered out, storage units are ready to house toys while baby items are waiting to take kids off to sweet dreams. Fill naptime with cozy warmth, employing baby blankets to keep little tykes cozy. Animals can surround the room—with plush in the crib, a nightlight on the wall, a humidifier in the corner, and music box or snow globe nearby to serenade infants off to sleep. Even when away from home, keep kids in comfort with a portable crib, but getting there means an array of baby items for the trip. Whether the venture is long or short, a car seat is a must for any road trip. A carrier works best when the trip is by foot, but a stroller is perfect to roll along at a walking pace. Tote along a diaper bag to cover daily needs, but rely on baby items to cover necessities far into the future.
For the day when teething begins, a toy can help. When a baby gets old enough to ask about childhood, a picture says a thousand words. Display every first in a milestone photo frame and keep the bulkier goodies—from birth certificates to precious ringlets—in keepsake boxes. Even begin preparation for college by offering a coin bank started with savings. Pick up everything for baby at Macy's.
