I can’t believe I’m already writing a post on our most used baby items months 6-12! I’ve been keeping a running list of new things that we get for Bennett as he reaches new milestones. It’s crazy to think about how much he’s already grown since the newborn to 6 months post + there are so many more “essentials” than when he was smaller. Our new normal is now so much more than just boppy pillows and sleepsuits. But, it’s SO FUN to see all his different skills start to develop using all of the items in today’s post.

[The things we still use from the list in Most Used Baby Items Newborn – 6 Months:]
- We still refer to Moms on Call religiously – we used the MOC 6-15 months book, and we just got in the MOC toddler book. Incredibly helpful for starting finger foods, transitioning to milk, and changing nap schedules.
- We also use a lot of the same products from my feeding essentials post. Although we’ve since dropped all bottles and just use sippy cups for milk.
- Still using and loving our Doona convertible car seat/stroller – I will cry when he is too big to use it!
I’ve divided the list up into different sections, but all babies will be different. These are just the things that work for us and Bennett right now! And if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me at anytime to ask!!
Silicon plates: I like these that stick to the tray so he can’t knock it around.
Silicon Utensils: He likes to mimic scooping but can’t quite eat with them yet.
Small Food Processor: I use a small one to chop up food we eat that he isn’t able to chew yet.
Portable Booster Seat + Tray: Great for travel and doesn’t scoot around on surfaces
Convertible High Chair: We got this one and like that it has a double tray for messes.
Bathtime + Bedtime
Whale Bath Tub Mat: So that he doesn’t slip and slide around the tub
Whale faucet cover: To prevent any head bumps
Bath Tub Basketball Goal: He loves dunking with ducks and basketballs
Toothbrush: Just to get him familiar with it
Humidifier: We turn this on when he’s sniffly or stopped up.
Zarbees Chest Rub: Love the smell of it, and it’s become a nighttime ritual.
Diaper Doublers: We add one to his nighttime diaper bc he is a heavy overnight wetter.
Panda Crate subscription: Use code KRYSTAL for 30% off
Fruit Teethers: Random Amazon find that he is obsessed with
Play Table and Chairs: He loves to stand up at the table right now.
Jumper: Used until about 10 months
Zebra walker: Used from 9 months – current

I’ll continue to add to this list if I think of anything I missed. And now that we are ONE, I’ll start on the next list!
