Our Baby Led Weaning Gear gets used every day and is honestly some of the more used baby gear we own. Bean is my second babe to BLW (baby led wean) and as such we have developed a few preferences. I thought I might save you the time and hassle of trying every suction plate on the market (hot tip…none of them REALLY suction perfectly) and share our Baby Led Weaning gear guide with you!
I wanted to share with you all our updated daily routine of a stay at home mom, a three-year-old, and a seven-month-old. Naptimes and Snacktimes. Bandaids and Potty Breaks. And Plenty of snuggles and love. That’s what makes up our daily routine.
Your sweet tiny nugget is no longer a newborn and suddenly they want real entertainment. What do you do?! 3 – 6 month old playtime is all about building muscle and growing teeth. You’ll spend a lot of time finding new things to chew on and new ways to encourage prolonged tummy time or sitting distractions while they build those muscles.
I know it seems crazy to consider playing with your newborn. All they do sleep, eat, poop, and repeat right? As they get just a little bit their wake windows widen and there is finally time for newborn playtime!
Newborn playtime is really rather simple, it’s mostly about introducing your baby to new sensory experiences. New sights, textures, sounds, and movements.
If your looking more for newborn care must haves I have a blog post all about what our essential supplies were!
When it comes time for playtime with your newborn consider some DIY Montessori Inspired Mobiles! I have two simple variations on some traditional Montessori mobiles that you can make at home with a few simple supplies!
I hope everyone is doing alright. And if not, I hope that a 0-3 month baby bean update full of adorable baby pictures helps! As of writing this, we will have been Sheltering at Home for 2 months and honestly, it’s not like we went anywhere much of her first month so really we just haven’t been much of anywhere for her whole life…lol
