Babies shouldn’t eat solids until 6 months as their digestive systems are too delicate. I learned from experience that experimenting earlier (like 4-5 months) can lead to weird reactions (hives)! And whether you practice baby-led weaning or go with pureed foods, here are some great feeding accessories…

Bumkins Waterproof SuperBib
Bibs

I was told to get lots of bibs of all types. But in retrospect, I would go with mostly plastic. They’re easy to clean and quick to dry.

Bornfree Nipple Wide Neck Silicone
2-Nipple sets for 3-6 months old

You’ll want this faster flow nipple as the baby grows. Don’t start too early though, as the baby might start rejecting the breast because it’s too slow.

Lifefactory 4-Ounce Glass Baby Bottle

I. love. these. bottles. Even though they are made of glass, they seem to be indestructible. Glass is the safest material for liquids. These smaller bottles are best for newborns since they only eat 2-3 ounces at a time.

P.S. Wondering where to register for your baby shower?

This is the big question. Do you register for your baby at Target? Walmart? Local boutiques?

I'm kind of an Amazon junkie. (Once you experience traditional store visits with a toddler, you'll see why :) ) And Amazon has a great baby registry service. They even let you add products from other websites. You can check out Amazon's baby registry right here.

The best reason to register with Amazon is that most people already have an account, which makes it easy on your friends and family.

And no matter where you register, I wish you a fantastic pregnancy, a really fun baby shower, and a smooth, natural, healthy delivery!
