Best Products and Tips New And Wonderful From the Mother of Her Third Child, Our Youngest Grandchild

baby brezaThis Grandma forgot the overwhelming joy a baby can bring to a family. After all, our youngest baby boy grandchild has brothers seven and eleven years older. I wonder if all third babies are as easy as our younger daughter’s third. I do know that some of the best contraptions and products did not exist for the other two and do make life easier with this baby.

I love the Baby Brezza. It is definitely a must have, even if it is very expensive. Need 2 ounces of formula only? Need 4 ounces only? Want 6 or 8 ounces? It is like a Keurig for baby formula. Fill up the water tank. Fill up the spot for a load of dry formula. Put a bottle under the spout. Press the button for the exact amount and out pours the perfect amount of perfectly mixed formula at the perfect temperature. No more mess. No more lumps to shake out. No more trying to heat the bottle to the right temperature. No extra time or fuss.  Buy at Amazon.

Speaking of bottle warmers, Dr Browns is the best bottle warmer. Very tall as compared to others, according to the mother of three boys. Buy at Amazon.

New to this third baby, Comotomo bottles were recommended to her. They are very cool looking, like a large breast with a nipple.  But she said you can’t  put them in the dishwasher like Dr Browns, and they get stains on them. Dr Browns seem to still be the best, according to the mother of a third baby.  Buy at Amazon.

I love the Baby bum diaper cream brush as much as my daughter. What a brilliant idea. It stands on its own. You use it to dip into the tub of diaper cream, which is cheaper than the tubes to use. Then the flat plastic end is used to wipe the cream on the baby’s bum. No more hands and fingernails full of diaper cream which is impossible to remove. No mess. No fuss.  You can get it in blue at Amazon.You can get it in pink.

By the way, my daughter forgot that Desitin is better than triple paste. When the baby got diaper rash, she bought triple paste. It did nothing. Desitin cleared the diaper rash up right away.  She likes the Desitin in the purple packaging rather than the blue packaging.  Buy at Amazon.

I love the blow up bathtub my grandma friend told me about and I bought for this third baby in the family. When the baby outgrows the infant tub, the baby is still too,little for the big tub. I used to use the kitchen sink. Now, at a very inexpensive price, you can buy and blow up a plastic mini tub to go inside the big bathtub. It is just like the plastic mini pools we used to buy for toddlers to play in, but smaller. Put baby oil in the bathtub and you don’t have to worry as much about lotion. Especially when they are very little. That’s from Yvonne, the baby nurse.  See, Mommy’s Helper Inflatable Bath Tub Froggie Collection, White/Green, 6-24 Months at Amazon.

I love the organic food pouches instead of baby food jars, as much as my daughter.  When out of the house and in a hurry, the baby can just suck the food out of the tube.  My daughter likes the Happy Baby brand.  So that you can see some of the combinations, my baby grandson’s favorites include:

Happy Baby Pears, Pumpkin, Peaches and Granola

Happy Baby Black Beans, Beets, and Bananas

Happy Baby Apples, Guava, and Beets

Happy Baby Carrots, Strawberries and Chickpeas

Happy Baby Bananas, Pineapple, Avocado and Granola

Happy Baby Green Beans, Spinach and Pears

He also loves the Gerber Mixed Berries Yogurt Melts and Gerber’s Vanilla Maple Little Crunchers he can pick up with his fingers.

Finally, Honest Diapers and wipes are in.  Organic is in.  We cannot ask for anything more than healthy food, and products that make a baby’s parents’ life easier.

Now when you need a baby gift, or a suggestion to make life easier, you have some tips to turn to, especially valid from a mother of a third baby.
