There are SO many different options for baby gear and baby items out there. I love compiling all of our favorites by age to make it easy for you to see what other babies love before deciding what to buy for your own babies. Below I have rounded up my “must haves for 3 month old baby”.
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12
1 | Como Tomo Bottles: These were the first bottles we bought for Ben and we bought new ones for Sloane. Both have LOVED them and had no problem switching between bottle and breast.
2 | Activity Mat c/o Dorel: We have been using this mat since Sloane was a newborn, at first it was just for tummy time. Now she loves reaching out and trying to grab (and chew on!) the little toys.
3 | Weighted Swaddle c/o Nested Bean: We started using this swaddle right before Sloane turned 3 months old. She is still being swaddled with arms in. We have used four different swaddles and have kept going back to this one because she typically sleeps so well in it.
4 | Boppy Newborn Lounger c/o Boppy: We used this with Ben and we’re still using it with Sloane. They both love to sit on it when we’re on the floor. Whether I’m doing laundry or playing with one of the other kids, they like being able to see what we’re doing.
5 | Solly Wrap c/o Solly: This is a favorite from newborn up until my kids reach 20 lbs! I love our Solly wraps SO much.
6 | Bandana Bibs c/o Copper Pearl: These bandana bibs are super cute! They also have some without the little ribbon around the edges. They’re thick so they’re perfect for super drooly babies.
7 & 8| Tubby Todd Wash & Tubby Todd Lotion c/o Tubby Todd: Tubby Todd is our favorite bath brand for the kids. We have tried so many and usually they’re either good for sensitive skin OR they smell good. I love that we can have both with Tubby Todd. You can use code GOODCLEANFUN10 to save 10% on your order!
9 | Bibs Pacifiers 0-6 months: We FINALLY found a pacifier Sloane likes and will use.
10 | Taggies Patches the Pig Lovey: We ordered this as Sloane’s Valentine’s Day gift and she LOVES it! To be fair, she was 4 months old, but around 3 months was just starting to grab things to chew on them, so I think it’s good for a 3 month old, too. She doesn’t sleep with it, we use it as a toy for when she is awake and for something to occupy her when we are in the car.
11 | Silicone Pacifier Clip c/o Lou Lou Lollipop: We have quite a few of these and at first they were just great for me because they made it harder for me to lose pacifiers. Now Sloane is able to grab them herself and chew on them.
12 | Teether Rattle: This little rattle is so cute! Not all teething toys are designed for such small hands or mouths, so finding one that works for babies at this age can be hard.
