In this post I'd like to share with you five items that I found essential while tackling day to day life with an infant/toddler, I hope you find them useful!
1 - Baby Video Monitor
This item is on top of my list because it helped me so much as a mom. Having a baby video monitor will save you from being worried about your child's safety day and night when you are away from him/her like being in another room doing stuff around the house or during night time. I personally found it very useful when I put my baby to sleep in his room while I am spending time on the balcony or another place in the house. The video monitor helps you keep an eye on your baby at all times.
2 - Baby Food Blender
Owning a baby food blender will save you so much time and hassle when your baby starts eating solid foods. With the blender you can blend your baby healthy food recipes and prep for a couple of days. It also ensures your baby to have healthy fresh meals instead of store bought jarred food that uses preservatives that increase shelf life!
3 - Baby Swing/Rock and Play
Having a baby swing or a Rock and Play is something that basically saved me as a mom who spends long hours alone with her child. It will help your baby stay engaged, comfortable and safe while you are doing stuff around the house that require you to use both hands! It also helps your baby settle for a nap while being rocked. But it's important to note that it is not recommended to have your baby sleep in the swing for long hours; so as soon as your baby falls asleep, transfer him/her to his/her crib or bassinet for safe sleep to reduce the risk of SIDS. The product shown below (Graco DuetSoothe Swing and Rocker) is a baby swing with a detachable rocking chair that you can move around the house; very very very useful!
4 - A PlayPen
Having a safe and secure area for your child to play and chill in is very important; thus I found that having a playpen really helped having my child engaged and happy while I am doing other stuff around the house. If you want to leave your baby playing the in the playpen while you are away from him/her, make sure you leave safe toys that won't cause your child any harm in terms of size and texture.
5 - Baby Bowls with Lids
Making sure that your baby is well fed and happy at all times and places is a priority. Personally, as a mom who tends to be on the go with my baby frequently, having to-go well sized baby food containers/bowls is very important. These baby food bowls are a favorite of mine because they give you a good amount of size (7 ounces) to carry your baby's food (Munchkin bowls with lids).
