Top 5 Tuesday- June {Baby Edition}

Happy Top 5 Tuesday, friends! It is officially that time again when I share my Top 5 Favorites of the month! Last month I shared all about my top 5 favorite moments in May. It was so neat to think back on special or funny moments in the month and reflect on some beautiful memories that were made!

This month I am sharing 5 of my favorite baby products I have found this month for my 10 month old! I am amazed by all the amazing products that continue to be created to make baby life easier and convenient! I have fallen in love with these 5 products for our littlest little and I’m excited to share them with you!

1/ Playtex Baby Non-Slip Bath Mat- 

My daughter is 10 months old now and is definitely at the point of sitting by herself in the big bathtub. Even though I sit there next to the tub at all times, it still makes me nervous that she could slip easily and I may not be quick enough to catch her. I found this slip free bath mat by Playtex and I absolutely love it! It has suction cups all along the bottom of it and it grips perfectly to the bathtub for a slip free bath time!

When I first bought it I was wondering where I would put it when it wasn’t being used. Come to find out this nifty bath mat has a hook on it! So you can either hook it to a command strip hook or it hooks great just to one of our hooks for our shower curtain! Otherwise the suction cups grip right to the wall of our shower and it stays there until it is needed again!

I definitely recommend this for all little ones! I found it at my local grocery store (Meijer), but you can also find it online at Target by clicking on the photo above!

2/ KidCo Go Pod-

The KidCo Go Pod has been a recent purchase of ours! I have had my eye on them for a while now and ended up finding a used one on the Facebook Marketplace! The KidCo Go Pod is a foldable baby chair that you can bring along anywhere with you! It folds up like a camping chair and stores easily into a bag!The seat is similar to a jumperoo type seat, it has plenty of space around it to put toys on and it has a couple of cup holders in it as well! This has been fantastic for pool days, beach days and even just hanging outside at home! We are not a camping family, but this would also be a great addition to your camping gear!

You can find the Go Pod on Amazon for about $50 depending on the color you choose, but I always suggest checking out any Facebook garage sale sites or Facebook marketplace to see if you can get a bargain on one! I found mine for $15!! So it is definitely worth taking the time to find a good deal! Otherwise get it new on Amazon HERE or by clicking on the photo above!

3/ SmarTrike 4-in-1- 

Listen up, my friends! This is a game changer! This is another product I had my eye on for a while and it is pretty expensive brand new so I hoped to find a used option at some point!I finally found one the other day on Facebook Marketplace and I am so happy with my purchase! The SmarTrike 4-in-1 is a tricycle that grows with your little one! Stage 1 is for 10+ months old where you can push your baby in the tricycle, there is a cushioned high back seat and a harness plus a safety bar around them. Stage 2 is 18+ months old where the high back seat becomes a normal tricycle seat, but the safety bar can remain around it. Stage 3 is for 24+ months old where you can remove the safety bar and it becomes a normal tricycle set up, but still with the option to push the tricycle yourself. The final stage, stage 4, is for 30-36 months old and it is just a normal tricycle for your little one to ride all on their own!

 

The SmarTrike can fold up for easy storage, which is a total bonus so we can bring it over to grandparents house easily! It truly is an amazing product and my daughter absolutely loves it! This specific SmarTrike 4-in-1 version that we have is an exclusive one sold by Walmart. It looks like they are not in stock anymore, but you can get a SmarTrike 4-in-1 on Amazon for $99 with prime shipping OR you can keep your eye out for a used one and get a killer deal! I got our SmarTrike for $30 and it is in fantastic used condition! You can find a new one on Amazon HERE or by clicking on the photo above!

4/ SwimWay Baby Swim Float-

It’s that time of year where we are spending most of our days in pools to escape the heat of summer! It can be hard having a baby under the age of 1 during the summer because they are eager to be part of the fun, but they aren’t at the age where they can roam free in a puddle jumper or life jacket! I have always purchased that cheap yellow baby swim float for like $4.99 for my kids. We constantly were replacing it because it would get holes in it constantly, which is kind of scary because we are supposed to trust our baby in it!I found this baby swim float at Target and I absolutely love it! The inflatable parts are easy to blow up and the seat is made of mesh material which makes it extra comfortable for baby. It comes with this adorable removable awning that protects your little one with its UPF 50+ sun protection! The best part is, It folds right up and fits into a small travel bag for easy transportation!

I found this at Target for $17.99! It is definitely not the cheap price of the yellow swim float, but it is much more durable and will last us for a while! We have tried a few other kinds of swim floats for baby and this is definitely our favorite so far! You can also find it on Amazon, but it is more expensive on there! Check it out at Target in store or online by clicking on the photo above!

5/ Cloud Baby Monitor App-

Raise your hand if you have spent a stupid amount of money on a video baby monitor to have it only work part of the time? *raises hands high in the sky* We have purchased a few different brands in the past and even spent close to $200 on one of them! It would only work part of the time and the times it would work were when a baby wasn’t sleeping. I decided to take matters into my own hands and I found an IOS app called Cloud Baby Monitor! This App is absolutely incredible! I could not believe how well it worked!

I downloaded the App on my iPhone and then downloaded the App on another IOS device. We personally use an old iPod touch and it is specifically used for the other side of the monitor only! The App works great with Wifi, but can also be used with your data if need be! The picture quality on the video is fantastic and you can even hit a button that will have your face appear on baby’s side so you can talk to them! This is a view of my sleepy girl through my side of the monitor.

We have baby’s side set up on a phone mount and clipped on to the lamp in her room so it stays in one place at all times and is always plugged in to keep it charged! The mount we use has worked great for us and keeps everything super secure! You can find it on Amazon for only $6.99 HERE! 

The best part about this App is that it only costs $3.99!!! In our case, we already had an iPod touch, but you could still buy one and still be saving money in the end for a great quality monitor!

Here are some other great features the App has:

  • Live Video anywhere You can watch a live full screen video of your baby with no distance limitation! So you can be out on a date night and check in on baby sleeping if you want!
  • Noise and Motion alerts You can set a specific setting to notify you when there is any movement or noise coming from your child.
  • White noise, lullabies or playlists you can play white noise, pre selected lullabies or you can create your own playlist that plays right through the App for your baby.
  • Night Light There is a night-light button on the parent side of the monitor and you can turn it on to check on your baby in the dark.
  • Apple watch This works with an Apple Watch as well!
  • Multi-Parent and Multi-Child features- You can monitor more than one child through your App and you can have more than 1 parent on the baby’s monitor.

I highly recommend this App! You will not be sorry with this decision! We not only saved a lot of money, but we also can sleep confidently knowing the monitor will continue working through the night and we can stay connected to baby!

To find this App on your IOS device you can click HERE or on the images and it will take you right to the App to download!

Well, folks, that has been another successful Top 5 Tuesday! I hope you learned something new about a baby friendly product today!

I just love all these new and fun options for our little ones and I hope if you give them a try you will fall in love with them like I have!

Have a beautiful day and squeeze your little ones extra tight today!
