Mommies Favorite Tools

My little guy is 14 weeks old now and I can't believe how quickly time has gone so far. He is full of smiles, giggles, and his fists are his favorite things to put in his mouth. Over these past 14 weeks I've come to love several items that have helped me with taking care of my little guy a little easier and smoother.
Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in Baby Scent

This stuff is amazing. It keeps your little ones behind safe from diaper rash and creates a barrier between their cute little bottom and whatever they leave in the diaper. He has not had a diaper rash or any signs ever. I've used this since day one and will continue to use it as long as he is in a diaper. This is the only thing I use. No powder or anything else and I make sure to put it on him every diaper change.  

Summer Infant Cotton SwaddleMe 

My little guy loves to be wrapped up tight at night and this blanket has put me at ease. Before, I would wrap him in a blanket but would find myself getting up to check on him to make sure the blanket hadn't come undone or over his face. The SwaddleMe wraps him tight and is secured by velcro so it won't come undone when your little one moves. I of course got it in the monkey pattern because we have everything monkey for him and his nursery is monkey themed as well. The blanket is light weight and breathable so if your baby gets hot easily or when the weather starts to get warmer, you can still use it without overheating your baby. 

Sassy MOD Pop Bouncer

I love this bouncer and so does my little guy. It has a mild vibration that you can  adjust the intensity of and several songs to choose from. The monkey mobile pops off easily so you can place your baby in the seat without knocking their head. He loves to kick at the monkeys and this has come in handy when the hubby has been away and I've had to use the bathroom or want to take a shower! 

Philips AVENT BPA Free Microwave Steam Sterilizer

This handy tool has made sterilizing the bottles a snap. All it takes is two minutes, a microwave, some water, and you are done. You place your cleaned bottles in the container, add the designated amount of water, click the lid, and place in the microwave for  2 minutes. Your bottles come out sterilized and ready to go for the next feeding. I use this daily and I don't know what I'd do without it for sterilizing. 

These are just a few tidbits of the many tools and items that I love using as a mommy. What have you found that works best for you?
