We used a lot of the same things from month seven but Aiden is getting more mobile and active every day. Here is a round-up of the most used baby items from month eight.

We are still using the Zipadeezip, DockATot (save $10 with this referral link) and Wubbanub for bed time.

Bath and Body

We still use Burt’s Bees wash/shampoo and diaper rash ointment. This month we used Honest Company diapers and tried Babyganics diapers. I like both, but still think Pampers Swaddlers work just as well for less money.

Play Time

We have lots of new play time items this month. We got Aiden this Chicco Walker. He hasn’t quite figured out how to walk in it yet, but he loves to be rolled around. We have a sit to stand walker similar to this VTech one. He still loves his Kick and Play, but now we are using it in a sitting position. He still plays with the exersaucer and Beatbo.

Out and About

Baby carriers are definitely on the list for most used baby items from month eight! I used my Kindred Wrap Ring Sling a bunch this month. I love how easy it is to put on if we are going somewhere and I don’t want to take the stroller. We also used our Ergo carrier a lot for walks and hikes. With all the heat, we got this gel cooling liner for the stroller. It works pretty well, but I’m not sure there is anything that can help with this recent heat! It did work better when we put it in the refrigerator before using it.


We finally found a sippy cup!! Well, it’s not really a sippy cup, it’s the Camelbak Eddy water bottle. He can actually drink from it (with a little help, it’s a bit big for him to hold himself) and it’s truly leak free.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
