One word (that looks like two): NoseFrida

Those snot balls are disgusting. You never empty it!

u/doctaj5 · 26 pointsr/Parenting

Second this. Best thing since sliced bread.

Baby Nasal Aspirator NoseFrida the Snotsucker by Frida Baby

u/brandyt77 · 25 pointsr/BabyBumps

I have this applicator and it is amazing! Reusable and super soft. Thanks for the tip too! We had a similar problem with my 2 year old when she ate too many blueberries 😬

u/DoctorVanHelsing · 23 pointsr/tilwtf

Not exactly mouth to nose, but this device is specifically for sucking snot out of babies' noses. Super popular too.

u/PandoraWraith · 21 pointsr/TalesFromRetail

There is a set of teething keys that have gel in them. On the package it says do not freeze, sanitize (boil), or put them in the dishwasher. There are several Amazon reviews bitching about how they exploded after being put in the freezer.

Edit: Amazon link, sort by 1 star. The stupid is real.

u/SugarandSass · 15 pointsr/BabyBumps

Ha! Here's my favorite dad review. It's about the nose frida snot sucker, and it's glorious.

u/Kahne_Fan · 15 pointsr/Unexpected

Exactly! If you're going to suck his nose, at least use protection.

u/SgtP2844 · 14 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Nose Frida

snot sucker

u/binderclips · 13 pointsr/beyondthebump

Get an electric nail filer and if you have difficulty seeing little nails, a head magnifier (I had one for crafting purposes but it works really well for baby nails).

u/StrangledMind · 12 pointsr/childfree

And that's about the same price as the Hippy Mombie version!

u/silkrobe · 12 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

I actually know people who swear by this for dealing with baby snot problems. :D

Baby Bum Brush, Original Diaper Rash Cream Applicator, Soft Flexible Silicone, Unique Gift, [Blue]

Makes it quick and easy, no finger painting the bum and bits. Just swoop, swoop, done.

u/cilucia · 10 pointsr/BabyBumps

So I had planned to finish this setup and post pictures during my two weeks off before my due date.. but then I went into labor on my second day off and here we are 8 weeks later!

We live in a 2BR/2BA apartment, but the other bedroom is for guests (in laws are here ATM) and my work from home office, and we definitely wanted to cosleep. The bedrooms are irritating small - 10x10 feet, but we managed to squeeze the essentials in.

I know a few people have commented about wishing they had space for a dedicated nursery, so I hope this gives you some ideas to show how it can work in a tight space!


The Ikea Hemnes dresser holds our clothes with the exception of one of the small drawers which has LO's current clothes that fit. All the other sizes are in a storage box in the closet.

On the dresser top we have:

  • Taylor Salter 914-WHLKR Baby Toddler Scale : only accurate to the 0.5oz, but worth the $45 to me in the early weeks to check his weight once a week. I'll use it for eBay packages afterwards (the top part can come off)
  • hiccapop wipe warmer: LO cries hysterically during diaper changes, but half as much since we got this wipe warmer. Spoiled little guy! It's not perfect though. The Costco Kirkland wipes don't fit until you use up 15 wipes or so even after you take off the green dispenser part, and sometimes the wipes don't always dispense and you have to open the top to get them going again. We don't use the nightlight function
  • Keekeroo peanut changer ("Vanilla", but seriously just tan really): I got this for $90 instead of $130 from a sale I stumbled upon (I posted about it here when I got it). Easy to wipe up.

    Behind the door, I got an organizer from the Container Store: I store our Muslin swaddling blankets and burp rags in the top four compartments, and the hamper for just LO's laundry. Has an odour out of the box, but it's fading.

    We have the ubbi diaper pail in grey. We originally thought we could go without a dedicated diaper pail, because our kitchen garbage is literally three feet on the other side of the door in the kitchen, but after a few days we realized it was much easier to have the diaper receptacle closer to the changing area (esp with LO screaming bloody murder during his changes). We went with Ubbi because you can use regular garbage bags and its steel instead of plastic (so will not retain odours). It's not completely airtight, but it hasn't been a problem with breastfed baby poops (they don't smell bad even when we forget to close the latch).

    Over by our queen bed, we have the Halo Bassinest and Dockatot. Yes, we put the Dockatot in the Halo (I added a picture that shows how closely it fits, since I was curious about it before I bought them), but lately, we've been bedsharing directly with the dockatot between me and DH in the bed. We don't have the Halo set up to swing over the bed though (you can't see LO from that height if you use the dockatot inside), we just have it set up to move closer and farther from the bed.

    In front of my Ikea Hemnes nightstand, is a plastic tote bin and a basket with my Medela PISA breast pump and stuff. That area of the floor was not really accessible because of how we arranged the Halo, so it seemed like a good place to stash my pump. I pull up the basket onto the bed when I want to pump (just 1-2 times a week after a morning feed, if I feel like it).

    The nightlight is from Mr Maria Designs (collaboration with LINE) - the small size. I was torn between this and the Miffy lamp. Definitely a splurge purchase, but it brings me joy (holla Konmari!) and I didn't care for any of the lamps on Amazon or the one from Ikea. I ordered it from Albee Baby and the 20% off code worked on it. The dimmer is stepless, and I keep it on the dimmest setting overnight so I can see baby for nursing in bed and changing diapers over at the Keekeroo.
u/vonMars · 9 pointsr/Parenting

Use a Nosefrida

It's awesome, and I highly recommend it.

u/charlotte095 · 9 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Three raves this week. Usually with the warmer weather, my dry skin tends to retain its moisture better. Not this spring! Decided to try some new moisturizers and I've been so happy with them. I also ordered a new sunscreen as a celebration for finishing my first year of grad school.


Rave: Cosrx Balancium Comfort Ceramide Cream. Love! I've been eyeing this for a while now and I'm so happy with this purchase. The cream is more like a balm but sinks in to my skin and is so calming. There is a fragrance but to be honest, I've really enjoyed it as nearly everything else in my routine is fragrance- free.


Rave: Cerave Baby Moisturizing Cream. I've never been a huge fan of Cerave in the tub but I was dedicated to finishing the tub before buying something else. That said, I absolutely love this cream. Its heavier so I only use it at night but its so soothing and moisturizing. It also is overall a more elegant moisturizer than cerave in the tub. Will definitely repurchase.


Rave: Supergoop Skin Soothing Mineral Sunscreen. I've heard some iffy reviews about supergoop but this sounded too good to be true: soothing, mineral-based, no white cast, etc. I've been so impressed with this sunscreen- goes on great with no greasy residue which is a huge plus for a mineral sunscreen. It's also very cosmetically elegant and sits well under my makeup. I wouldn't use this for a full day in the sun but its great for an every day sunscreen.

u/thaen · 8 pointsr/NewParents

Don't worry. He'll survive. I know he's your whole world right now and perspective is impossible, but he will be OK. He'll be uncomfortable but in two weeks you'll be worrying about something different.

If you already have a prescription cream, this might not help, but it helped us:

Are you cloth diapering?

u/Mickaloni · 8 pointsr/Mommit

Yes, yes, yes to the Nose Frida Snot Sucker. I had such issues with my kids and congestion and those bulb syringes never worked. But a warning, it does a good job and feels weird. Don't be surprised if your kid does NOT like it but their easy breathing is your reward.

This is what worked for us:

  • Using Nose Frida along with saline drops

  • Elevate head of bassinet/crib slightly (fold up a baby blanket or place a book under the mattress)
  • Use a cool mist humidifier
u/happychallahday · 8 pointsr/BabyBumps

I did just spend almost $250, but snagged a ton of "really want to have this, but not at this price" items using and the honey chrome extension, with Target, Buy Buy Baby, and Kohls opened to cross reference the prices.

A couple notable purchases:

The Kiinde system is having some serious sales on Amazon, depending on what you want, these starter packs are more than half off.

For those of you who are (like me) terrified of finger nail cutting, this is more than half off:

This is apparently awesome for catching milk in the shower or when breastfeeding with the other side:

A friend of mine swears by this nursing gown for the hospital and when recovering (especially if you have a c-section). A couple sizes and colors are on serious sale:

The tiny love gyms are on okay sale (but still better than the 15% off we get with the completion discount. It was around 18% of the "best price" on camelx3)

Lastly, these wireless/noise cancelling headphones will apparently be life savers, and the black ones are about half off:

u/saf621 · 7 pointsr/beyondthebump

The Winkle toy was my son’s absolute favorite thing to play with starting around 12 weeks old.

u/Black_Delphinium · 7 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

Get the Nose Frida. Those little nose cleaning bulbs do crap all. This was much more effective.

u/TookieDeLaCreme · 7 pointsr/AskReddit

Was it a snotsucker or did he just do it skin to skin? Either way, that's true love right there.

u/dcoughlin · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

We have five kids, so things here have lasted at least that long:

Baby Bjourn Babysitter which goes by a new name now.
NoseFrida Snotsucker is the grossest name, but very handy and BIFL
Bumbo floor seat is a plastic seat kids sit on, on the floor
Boppy is a big U-shaped pillow for floor sitting or nursing
Wood stacking toys - either Ikea or Melissa & Doug
Saddleback leather/Love41 bucket bag for a diaper bag

u/BurlRed · 7 pointsr/predaddit

You don't need a wipe warmer.

You don't need pee-pee-tee-pees.

You don't need baby shoes. Shoes are for people who walk.

You don't need 12 bottles. I recommend between 2 and 4 bottles. If you have more bottles you'll just end up having to wash more bottles. We do very little formula though so if you're going right for formula then I don't know.


PJs with zippers. Snaps are fine but take forever when he's crying.

Diaper Cream paddle. It seems silly and people who don't have them give us shit for using one of these but seriously. The cream goes on fast and even and you don't have goop on your finger that you have to wipe off before doing up the onesie. We're near the end of a tub of cream and I can barley get my finger down there but the paddle reaches easily.

A bath with a hammock. This one has been great. We used it next to the sink when he was a newborn. He laid in the water supported by the sling. Once he was a little bigger but not quite sitting up it adjusts to give a more upright position. Then you just get rid of the sling when he can sit up.

Nose Frida. Bulb aspirators don't work very well and are hard to clean and you're supposed to replace them incredibly frequently. The Nose Frida works better and is less disposable. He'll still hate it though.

Nail Grinder. You'll need clippers too but this nail grinder is great. If you use it regularly you can skip the clippers almost entirely. That's nice because clipping baby nails is terrifying. This has the added benefit of rounding the edges which makes those razors attached to the end of your baby's fingers a little less sharp.


I'm sure there's more for both lists. I'll edit if I think of them. You could also share your current registry and get comments based on that. I don't think that violates forum rules, but I haven't checked.

u/littledinos · 6 pointsr/beyondthebump

I don't have a ton of toys, but my baby loves this thing:

He also really digs his exersaucer/jumperoo (similar to this, but you can pick one up at a yard sale for like $15 or less:, which has different toys all around the rim and allows him to jump up and down endlessly. He hated his swing, is meh on the bouncer seat, but has a ball in this.

u/Babble_Gum · 6 pointsr/tifu

Well, I have no experience with children, but we have things like this and this to remove snot from baby nose, so I imagine that if you don't have access to one of those you do what you gotta do.

u/Gatorgirl007 · 6 pointsr/legaladvice

Sophie the giraffe is always a popular choice, but expensive. My LO has liked these keys.

She really seems to prefer chewing on fabric though. Wet washclothes are a favorite.

u/Soulbrandt-Regis · 6 pointsr/ffxiv

Here you go, buddy.

u/yt1300 · 6 pointsr/daddit

If you wear that shirt you are going to need one of these.

u/upbeatish · 6 pointsr/NewParents

Random thoughts:

  • If you’re nursing, are you avoiding caffeine?
  • When you put him down, have you tried both “scooped” (like a snug-a-puppy) and flat (like a bassinet) surfaces?
  • Have you tried Happiest Baby on the Block soundtrack? (Hair dryer one sometimes works for our second. Always worked for our first.)
  • Pacifiers? (If you’re not opposed to them and his latch is pretty established)
  • Have you tried rockers with vibrating motors built in?
  • Do you have a mobile? (We have a cheap one. The really tinny sound works sometimes, even when top-quality versions of the same songs fail to help when played over our high-end speakers)
  • Have you checked his temperature? (I’d recommend using a skin thermometer, such as: Braun Forehead Thermometer
  • If he has a low fever, check with his pediatrician to see whether you should give him baby Tylenol.
  • Does he sleep when you take him for a drive?
  • When you swaddle, do you make it tight enough that he can’t wriggle at all? (I recommend SwaddleMe, the straight jacket of swaddles)

    Hopefully something in here helps? Good luck!

u/rosstein33 · 6 pointsr/Parenting

It gets easier, but there are regressions which will catch you off guard. Sleep will get better then get worse. It's the cycle as they grow and become more aware of their world and their senses. Behavior will get seemingly better and then get worse. But if you add another child to the mix the ENTIRE dynamic changes!

One thought directly related to the cold... Are you using a Nose Frida?

Baby Nasal Aspirator NoseFrida the Snotsucker with 20 Extra Hygiene Filters by Frida Baby

If you're not using the Nose Frida to keep nightime coughs and stuffy noses at bay, then you're doing it wrong!! I have 3 kids, of which #1 did not have the Nose Frida used on her. She had bad nights when she was sick... Would get bad post nasal drip which would cause coughing spats and sleepless nights. #2 and #3 have had the Nose Frida used on them and (knock on wood), we have not had a fully sleepless night due to sickness.

My wife and I are in the throes of parenthood right now. 10F, 4M, 2M. It's insanity at our house. But we do our best, support each other and try our best to cling to the good moments and try and let the bad/annoying/frustrating stuff go (but that's not easy!).

So it gets better, no doubt. Just have to try your best and hold on for the ride as there are many aspects of them growing up you'll never really be able to change or control.

u/ms_sanders · 5 pointsr/Eyebleach

The Amazon customer images for this scale are a goldmine

u/sewmanybees · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

My son is 7 months old, I stay at home with him and heres what we like: Books, These stacking cups , this annoying cube , this tactile ball , we've had this one for longer but he still loves to chew on it and shake it around , he also likes to chew on and cuddle with any fabric so maybe more muslin swaddle blankets (if you don't already have enough!), plus they can double as burp cloths! Also, when it get closer you could ask for seasonal clothes in the right size (my son has been in 9 month outfits since 5 months so you might want to wait to be sure of sizing).

u/cornfrontation · 5 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This sounds gross, but it's the best baby tool out there. I give it to everyone now.

The bumbo is actually really bad for their development unfortunately. If you’re looking for a bath specific item I highly suggest this, I used it with my son until he was able to sit unassisted and he never slipped off

u/ArtisticKittens · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

The baby bum brush

This thing is the weirdest looking thing, but I have 3. One on the changing table in his room, one in our living room for downstairs diaper changes and one in the diaper bag. Diaper cream is absolutely gross and I hate getting under my nails and on my hands because it doesn't wash away easily. I wipe it down with a baby wipe after each use and at the end of the night I wash it in the sink. While it isn't a something important item, I swear by it!

u/baileyfaze · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump


Chux pads, hands down, were the best purchase we made. Those saved us so much laundry and so many diapers. The link is hit or miss - one box we got was great and quilted, the second box was not quilted and they fall apart more easily. Which really sucks because we're not going through several a day anymore, so it has time to really fall apart before it gets soiled. Even the shitty ones are incredibly helpful.

A Haakaa breast milk catcher. Best money I've ever spent. I stopped using it every day at 11 months PP. 11 months of daily use.

An electronic nail file. I cut too close once, and decided I don't ever want to do that again. It's quiet, it has a little light on it, two speeds, and a bunch of different nail heads.

Stacking cups. Don't know why we even have other toys. Did you know you can throw them and chase after them and then throw them again, mom? You can put them inside each other! You can put them in the toy basket and then take them out and then put them back in again! You can knock them down when mom & dad foolishly stack them up! You can clack them together! You can bang them against EVERYTHING!!

This inflatable tub. It has a little shoehorn for the crotch so you can use it before baby can totally sit up by themselves. We're still using it because my child is dead set on committing suicide in the bathtub.

Sleeved bibs. Or as we like to call them, eatin' ponchos. We got some "art smock" cheaper ones to alternate with, but the Bumkins one is 👌👌👌 so much better. The art smocks are fabric-y on the body, so they stain.

A ring sling. No link because I actually borrowed from my local babywearing community. But I checked out a ring sling back to back to back. My chonker outgrew the Moby wrap I had (which was super hot and a PITA to get on and off) by 3 months when I finally discovered ring slings. Ring slings are like the cool, breezy older sister.

A yoga ball. We spent hours bouncing our child.


This Graco Swing. Well, any swing, but this is the one we had. Of the several swings at daycare, my baby tolerated one kind...for a few minutes. Obviously this is a my baby thing.

A walker. We got one used from a garage sale before we realized they're not really recommended for babies anymore.

Any chew-toy specific type teether.

u/sneaky_dragon · 4 pointsr/Rabbits

Pick up a baby scale. I have a few of these:

Check Craigslist - I picked mine up for $30-40.

u/WaterBearDontMind · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

There is no rush to buy toys as others have said. Tummy time should begin at birth and you could try to get toys that will hold LO’s attention in that position before they learn to reach for things:

  • B&W books like this one
  • A mirror that can be propped vertically at infant eye level
  • A tummytime pillow in the same shape as Boppy but smaller, goes under newborn armpits

    Next up would be a playard (the Kick n Play Piano one was super popular in our Bumper group) to hang things overhead that they’ll eventually bat at or kick. The Manhattan Toys with lots of strings or loops are great first toys to grasp. You might also like some plastic chain links, which can be toys/teethers on their own at first and graduate to tools for tethering toys in the stroller/car seat.
u/etrnloptimist · 4 pointsr/Parenting

Triple Paste. That stuff is crazy good. We've had nothing but excellent results with it, when other diaper creams did nothing.

u/TheHatOnTheCat · 4 pointsr/beyondthebump

My baby is almost 5 months.

Toys: she loves all mobiles/activity gym hanging toys. She actually is starting to enjoy some other toys that she manipulates with her hands but only when she is sitting up, which she can't do alone yet. So in her carseat/stroller, sitting between my legs, propped up in back with a pile of blanket, or most of all in her high chair. Her high chair makes her so much more interested in using her hands to explore things (I do see that it's a better position, the tray holds it up and she can't always do that herself so she can move ti around).

We have the ANTILOP high chair from Ikea which was only $20 and is awesome! Another $6 for the PYTTIG high chair support pillow which is comfy, easy to clean, and helps her be in the right position to use the tray. Her favorite baby toy to hold is the Skwish Classic Rattle and Teether Grasping Activity Toy. She got a bunch of different baby toys at Christmas and loves this. It is one of the few wooden toys she can mange to hold and manipulate yet. She likes to chew it too. She can also manage to grab Oball products and hold the lighter Oballs. She likes the rattle ball. She also just really likes to chew on cloth, this includes cloth and crinkle cloth books.

I read books to her. Yes, some board books but those are super short and pretty boring. I learned you can get up to 50 books at a time from our local library! So just a pile of kids of books and I read her a few. I like to do this facing a mirror so I can watch her face and read to her with her in my lap.

She loves walks int he stroller and being baby worn in her Boba baby carrier when she gets fussy in the stroller. I can also use the Boba to carry her while doing something else or to get her to fall asleep during the day not on my lap. (Yeah, I need to figure this out.) Outside is always a treat to her and going even boring places like the grocery store makes her alert and somewhat excited.

Curious to see what other people post.

u/xxlilstepsxx · 4 pointsr/beyondthebump

Pretty much all you can do is continue everything in your power to make her comfortable. Suction out her nose as much as possible to make it easier for her to breathe, and make sure her throat / mouth don't get dried out because she'll be doing a lot of mouth breathing.

My son has had pretty much non-stop upper respiratory infections since he was 3 months old. We do :

  • Humidifier
  • Vicks on his feet under his socks (dunno why, but this seems to help on occasion)
  • We use a nosefrida coupled with saline drops to suction out his nose (Put the saline in her nose and let it sit for a couple of seconds to loosen up the snot, then use the nosefrida to get all that nastiness out)
  • When he gets really bad, our guest bathroom is tiny, so we get him in there, turn the shower on hot, close the door, turn off the fan, and let the steam go to work. This really helps a lot: there have been times where we've done this and the poor little guy has had snot all the way from his nose to his diaper.

    I'm sorry your LO is sick! I hope she gets to feeling better soon!!
u/mdhurt2 · 4 pointsr/WTF

They actually can breed mold.

I never used one on my baby. I used this instead, which works like a charm.

u/HelloBeautifulChild · 4 pointsr/BabyBumps

Hi! We ran off of advice given to us and some lists online. (Lucie's list is really good.) What is unique to where you live? When are you due?

For example, I'm due Nov 7 and in Colorado. So we registered for warmer baby beanies as well as cold weather clothes like long sleeve footies and such. I also made sure to register for car window shades because the sun in Colorado is no joke. I added in a set of wetbags because I've heard they're insanely useful. There's also a rocking chair because my mom had one with me and my sister and swears by it.

We didn't register for any of the health kit things because they have a lot of stuff we've been told not to use (nail clippers) and other stuff we know we won't use (the bulb nose clearers are great I'm sure but the nurse at the infant class told us to just get the Nose Frida. We just put in a baby thermometer you can use under the baby's arm, nail files, comb and brush kit, and Boudreaux's Butt Paste because my mom was adamant we don't need to bother with anything else. I know we'll need to get baby Tylenol but I didn't bother to register for it. (Maybe I'll go ahead and add that now...) OH! Also teething stuff but you already got that. If I mentioned something you already have sorry, I got a bit carried away.

Anyway. It might help to go to Buy Buy Baby or Target or some place to register in person, just put everything cute on the list. You can shorten the list later but this will give you a broad scope if you're worried you're forgetting something.

u/CaptnAiryca · 4 pointsr/beyondthebump

CeraVe baby cream is the best! Our whole family uses it for dry skin, excema, etc. It's unscented and has ceramides which is important for the moisture barrier in your skin.

u/BigBlackHawks · 3 pointsr/beyondthebump

Ideally you don’t want baby in the car seat for more than 2 hours at a time without taking a break.

For toys... get some new toys to introduce on the drive. Some ideas off the top of my head from that age are things that shake a make noise (you can put some dry rice in a sealed container and it makes a cheap shaker), touchy feely books like jellycat books like this or this, large silicone straws, multi textured balls, winkle toy

u/slmller3 · 3 pointsr/JulyBumpers2017

I worked at a daycare and saw lots of diaper rash. Have you started cleaning him with warm wet paper towels instead of wipes? Then giving his bum a little time to air dry, using another diaper to fan his butt? The alcohol in wipes sucks for baby bottoms. Also, cornstarch beats baby powder if you need something to keep moisture out. :)

Also, TRIPLE PASTE is the bomb dot com.... only this kind:

No other diaper rash cream works like Triple Paste. It's expensive but you can get it at major drugstores and Target and Walmart I believe. It will stick to the bottom and not the diaper! :D Good luck!

u/babydekuscrub · 3 pointsr/BabyBumps

Both of these look great! I would totally sleep on the canoe pillow. And I pumped at work for a year, being hands free and able to continue typing at my desk saved me many many hours of productive work time.

Before my first baby I would've said the most ridiculous product was the bendy straw thing that you can use to suck boogers out of your baby's nose. But the sucker bulbs are hopeless and it's awful not being able to help a sick, congested baby - I absolutely intend on getting one of these this time!

u/aleii1 · 3 pointsr/Parenting

Nosefrida - gross but works much better than a bulb syringe. When your baby can't breathe well because of a clogged nostril, saline spray + Nosefrida is awesome.

Kimono style clothes
- newborns have no neck strength and their floppy heads make it hard to dress them in regular clothes that pull over their head. Kimono style is amazing. You just lay it on the ground, lay baby on top of it, and then button it up. Once I figured this out, I had my baby in nothing else.

Get some sort of swing, stroller + carseat connector (convenient), a wearable baby carrier (nice to help you get things done when baby doesn't want to be put down, and helpful in places like the supermarket), and pack n play

u/davdev · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

OP, get this:

Works the same as actually sucking, only no snot goes in your mouth

u/ttc_in_nyc · 3 pointsr/pregnant

This is the one I got, it looks like there are a few different versions, but they all do the same thing and it's specifically made for putting diaper cream on baby butts. No idea if that makes the material special, but here's hoping it works well enough!

u/KeepHerRefrigerated · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Ah found it. This one. Thank you!

u/closetdork · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

So here's the one that we have - it's digital and can be used until the baby's a toddler (you just take the tray away and it becomes a normal scale that your bub can step on!) ;)

u/virtuesplea · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I figured the 27 ounces was coming from some sort of calculation based on weight or age. My point is that because he's not spitting up as much, he might be keeping more down, even if the total volume you're giving him is less.

You can also try offering the bottle if he seems fussy. If he's not hungry, he probably won't eat much, if at all.

As far as increasing - if he's handling 2 oz at a time, try 2.5 or 2.25. You can premake formula, so have some on hand and if he finishes a bottle and is keeping it down, offer a little bit more, in 1/4 or 1/2 oz increments. See what his current threshold is. And expect that it will change based on what's currently in his stomach and other variables you might not know.

Reflux meds can help - my daughter was on prilosec. Although that was a nightmare to get into her once she was off the feeding tube. You'd need your pediatrician to prescribe it though. A feeding log showing how much you're giving him and how much he's throwing up (try dumping a pre-measured amount of formula onto a towel or something so you have an idea of what, for instance, an oz looks like).

The other thing we did was add a thickener to her formula. I can't remember the exact brand we used, but you might ask your pediatrician about that also. That really helped.

Try to remember that if he was breastfed, you wouldn't be able to monitor how much he was eating. And treat the formula feeding the same instead of obsessing about the amount he's eating. With breastfed babies, you check that they're producing enough wet diapers and gaining weight. Short term (daily), if he has enough wet diapers for his age (4-5 really wet), he's not dehydrated. Longer term (weekly), weigh him.

You haven't mentioned if he's lost weight or fallen in the percentiles. Since you are concerned with his intake amount, weigh him regularly (at the pediatrician's or on a scale at home that measures to half an oz) to make sure he's not losing weight.

You mention wanting someone to watch you feed him. Honestly, it doesn't sound like you are doing anything wrong except getting stressed. And that's not wrong, just not helpful. Many babies have reflux and throw up a lot and still gain weight just fine.

BTW, this is the scale we used to weigh our reflux baby. Don't compare to the pediatrician's scale - just take one weight as soon as you have the scale, then one a week later, etc. It's the change that's important.

It's only recommended that babies use jumpers for max 15 minutes a day, so I wouldn't buy something that I could only use for that short amount of time. My baby is 5 months old and in the last month I bought the foam puzzle mat pieces that I can arrange on the floor and let her roll around. I propped up a cheap door mirror sideways on the wall so she can look at herself while rolling on the mat, and she loves to stare at herself and laugh. I also have a few different small toys for her. The favorite for the past few weeks has been this one:

He loves any of the Lamaze stuffed animals since they have bright colors and different textures. We have the monkey, cat, turtle and firefly (favorite is the firefly). He also loves this thing because he can grab it easily and stick it in his mouth.

Pregnancy: Liked Old Navy Maternity I loved wearing foldover waist things like capri pants, skirts, and pants. Though for work I was able to keep wearing my pre-pregnancy pants as my fat redistributed and they are elastic waist anyway. And the Old Navy Maternity tank tops are amazing, I still wear them after giving birth. I also wore Poise pads to catch my pee leaks, they worked great.

Did not like Ginger gum, that shit's gross.

Postpartum: Liked Kotex pads. The squirt bottle they gave me at the hospital. Colace.

Did not like Always pads (fucking cheese grater). Those witch hazel pads didn't do much for me, neither did the numbing cream.

Baby Like Pampers Baby Dry diapers, Fisher Price Rock and Play, Nosefrida snotsucker, Fisher Price plug in swing, Chicco Keyfit 30, Chicco NextFit, Harmony Odyssey stroller, Infantino pouch feeding products, Vtech baby monitor, Cuisinart food processor, lightweight car seat toys, Ubbi diaper pail, IKEA high chair (I probably have more, but these are some of the things I love on a daily basis or have saved my sanity).

Did not like Swaddle blankets (specifically swaddling), moby wrap, boppy pillow, Graco battery operated swing, huggies diapers, and MAM bottles.

Bonus Mom Supplies Pump wipes (my pump room at work has no sink and these are perfect to use after pumping), leisure bra (I cut holes where my nipples are and I can double pump hands-free, so helpful!), and JuJuBe diaper bag (it's small and cute and I know where everything is now!)

I think baby cries due to 4 reasons: hunger, uncomfortable/too cold/too hot/wet diaper, sick, mucus (we didn't know about this one). Probably a tons more reasons, but let's not get started. Address those 4 issues as a starting point.

nosefredia for when baby has a stuffy nose and then the windi for when baby has gas. Now I know that both products seem.... gross but trust me they work.

u/bucki_fan · 2 pointsr/predaddit

Just go now:

Sleeper - Agree with OP, this thing is fantastic. Daughter never slept in her "real" crib until nearly 9 months old. Really pissed that they added the auto-rocker and now I'm tempted to spend $90 to replace our perfectly good one.

Swing - Get one that plugs-in. Also, the one that rocks like a ship (4mom?) and is like $300 - wife's cousin bought one because expensive = best and kid was getting sea sick.

Nosefrida or Baby Comfy Nose - this may save your sanity and the life of you, your spouse, or your child because otherwise sleepless nights are in your future.

Boppy - amazingly useful.

Extra car seat base

Don't bother:

  • Baby wipe warmer
  • Bumbo
  • Diaper Genie - they barely work and you get a compressed plastic log of unholy smell instead of a plastic bag that you can get rid of after one diaper if warranted.

    Kid Dependent:

    Bottles - we got lucky on our first try and she did great with the Tommy bottles. Don't buy a ton or at least don't open them all and be unable to exchange.

    Formula - not judging and sometimes its necessary or just a simple convenience. But some kids prefer one brand over another and/or will react differently to different brands. Also, Costco = Gerber; Target = Similac and WalMart/Sam's = Enfamil.

    Pacifier - some love them, some hate them. Most love, but ours hated the straight kind and was insisting on the flat ones within a few months.

    Humidifier - get a real one that uses heat and be smart enough to put it far enough away from the kid so they don't get burned. Ultrasonic doesn't do shit for stuffy noses or coughs.

    Good Idea, but can wait:

    Video monitor - We went with a normal Foscam and put the tinyCam app on our phones for a few bucks.

    Small food processor - as said elsewhere, don't get the baby one; or just get the cheaper Bella one from Kohl's. Making baby food isn't that hard and it's a ton cheaper. If you've got a Nutribullet or similar, you're also good to go.
u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Parenting

What we do is take the baby for a long medium-hot shower (which our baby absolutely loves), and let the snot loosen up a little, then we have one of these which we use to get out as many of the boogers as we can.

Usually, the combination of the relaxation of the shower, and the improvement in the congestion, will make the next attempt at sleep more successful.

As far as taking the baby in the shower, the parent who's giving the shower typically aims the shower as far down as it can, and sits Indian style just at the edge of the water (so that only one leg is really getting any of the spray) and puts the baby in our lap Indian-style in the direction that his feet are on the water side. Then we'll put a rag over the baby's torso, and keep the water on that rag warm by occasionally dripping water with a sponge. So, it's really the steam of the shower that's helps with the congestion, and the noise/warmth that helps the child settle down.

u/mahsitti · 2 pointsr/Mommit

The bulbs can be tricky and it is possible to injure your kid if used improperly. The nosefrida really is much better.

u/kaydubbleu · 2 pointsr/daddit

We've been putting Vicks in a bowl or 2 with hot water in the room with my daughter when shes sleeping overnight etc.. We've also noticed her nose gets blocked and crusty when a tooth is coming in so maybe its just that and not a cold with your boy as well. We got one of these Nosefrida things and it works well when its really blocked.

u/Chriss1241 · 2 pointsr/daddit

Same thing happened here. 1 week into daycare got a cold, which then turned into an ear infection.

Anyway, we got the Nosefrida which is 100% better then a bulb syringe (and 100% more disgusting, but it pulls out so much more snot). Just put some saline drops in before to loosen everything up.

Also, as per a recommendation of a friend, we rubbed Vicks BabyRub on her feet before bed, put some socks on, and the coughing definitely decreased at night. We asked our ped. before we did, and though she never heard of doing it, she didn't see a problem with it. Just make sure it is the Vicks BABYRUB, it is safe for 3 months+ in age.

u/DarlingDestruction · 2 pointsr/BabyBumps

I was/am in the exact same boat - first kid, limited funds, starting from scratch, going through reviews and prices drove me insane. It took me probably three months to get my registry together, and, even then, I am still switching things up, lol. was invaluable while picking everything out. I highly recommend you check it out.

What we have bought ourselves that fit our tight budget:

Graco Comfy Cruiser Travel System. We had already decided to go with that car seat, given that it seems to be the top-rated budget option, and the stroller ended up being a much-needed bonus. We go on walks a lot, so it works for us. If you don't need the stroller, the seat itself is, I think, only ~$100.

The Pack N Play, which I've heard from literally everyone and their mother is almost a necessity.

Because we don't have an IKEA near us to get our hands on a swanky $99 crib, we bought this DaVinci crib. We still only ended up paying $100 for it, as we found it on sale, however, we would have paid the $200 for it, given that the reviews are good, and, when compared to some other cribs that cost $400 and up, the price isn't bad at all.

As for the rest of the registry, we have on there a Moby wrap (affordable baby wearing, yay!), nail clippers, outlet plugs, nursing pads, a wipes case, a baby tub, baby wash, assorted crib sheets, waterproof crib sheets, Pack N Play mattress, and sheets to go with, crib mattress (we actually bought this one when we found it on sale for $20, and it's just fine), receiving blankets, dirty diaper bags (because we aren't getting a diaper pail, just a small can with a seal-able lid), changing pad, and a cover to go with, pacifiers, Dr. Brown's Gia Nursing Pillow, a bottle brush, bottle warmer, thermometer, booger sucker, camera to monitor the baby, and a few other assorted things that I couldn't really find a definitive "best in class" for, so pick at your own discretion: diaper bag, swaddles (although I've read good things about the Summer Infant brand), bottles (we're going with Phillips Avent), a bouncer (we got this one), and a swing.

I agonized over this stuff for what felt like forever, lol, so I hope it helps you and saves you some hair-pulling. It's all so overwhelming!

u/Deuce232 · 2 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

The Blooming Bath flower that serves as a padding/hammock for a sink might be good for you. I haven't used it but have seen some Bumpers say good things about it. I saw it in the store and it was bigger than what I thought but is still smaller than a tub to store.

Blooming Bath - Baby Bath (Canary Yellow)

u/aka_____ · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

When we’re both home we just shower with her. Usually FH showers her now because she’s over 25 lbs and I couldn’t do it anymore without my arm cramping up by the end. I’ve gotten muscle spasms before and I’m worried I’d get one while holding her and drop her.

If I’m alone I also shower with her, but I put her in her bath seat on the floor on the far end from the shower head. I spray her with water every so often cuz she loves it. And every couple minutes hand her a different bath toy from the collection to keep her interested in staying still.

One thing that helps her from sliding off the seat (this one by angelcare), is that I added one of (these big flat sponges) to give her some more “grippiness” it works really well. It’s kinda annoying to have to set it up somewhere to dry thoroughly but it’s well worth the annoyance.

We have this teether, the little nubs are baby-finger-sized, my daughter likes to get two of them in her mouth at once, lol.

u/who__whatwhat · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

I had success with the Comotomo silicone teether. It's easy to hold and my LO was able to chew on the angled fingers without having to hold the teether just right, which was a struggle with other teethers. Worked the first time I put it in LO's hand!! I was so happy and relieved that LO could finally chew on something and that it was easy to maneuver no matter how it was held.

At that age, the best toys seemed to be the ones he could get his fingers into to help him grip them. The Oball rattle was his favorite, and he liked the Comotomo teether too.

u/VALiving2018 · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips

Have a couple of friends with kids. I always get a butt spatula for applying diaper cream ( and Boudreaux's Natural Butt Paste.

Have been told they make life so much easier!

u/MINOLATX · 2 pointsr/pregnant

This list is awesome! I was not nearly that organized for my registry! Just a few comments from the other side (my baby is 3 months currently).

Baby nails are sharp and scary, some friends bought us this Electric Nail File and it is absolutely amazing, not painful for baby at all and much more efficient than the little files.

This butt spatula thing has been great for when we apply diaper cream! Saves us from getting it on our hands.

For me personally, I found the Boppy rather ineffective for nursing at first while we were trying to figure out nursing. Baby would kind of slide down between the Boppy and my stomach. Now at 3 months old, the Boppy is super useful for propping baby and sometimes as a nursing pillow if I decide to use one. My first few weeks of nursing I'd use the Brest Friend Nursing Pillow it was great when Baby really needed a little extra support for getting into the best position for nursing.

Breastfeeding was very painful for me the first few weeks. Our LO ended up having a bad latch due to tongue and lip ties we had to get lasered (anterior tongue tie had been clipped by Pediatrician in the hospital, she still had a posterior tie that was diagnosed later by a lactation consultant - just something to keep in mind), by the time we had the procedure done the damage was done to my nipples. These nipple shields are one of the things that really helped my nipples heal in between feedings to keep my bra/clothes off of them. I hope you don't have to use them, but something you may want to make a note of in case you have a similar experience. If you do end up having nipple pain, ask your OB (or Google how to make it yourself) for a script for "Newman's Nipple Cream", that stuff helped save our breastfeeding relationship!

Good luck, looks like you're off to a great start!

Amazon has a checklist feature that really helped me build my registry as a FTM. There's also a "Good, Better, Best" checklist that has honest, unbiased reviews of products in each category to highlight the "covers all of the bases, minimal bells and whistles, low cost" to the "all of the crazy shit you will never need but costs a million dollars!"

Here are a couple of things that I selected based on those lists and reviews here:

Breastfeeding pillow

Booger sucker

Wipe warmer (I also picked out a stand for it to protect the dresser I'll be using as a changing station)

Washable organic nipple pads... to answer your question they absorb leaking milk so your shirts don't look like they're crying all the time. disposables exist, too, but I figure why spend more money throwing them away when you can just toss them in the wash. This pack had enough pairs that it's not like you'll run out in between laundry loads, especially with baby making messes!

We bought a baby scale a year or so ago for our cats (one was really underweight, one was really overweight, so we had to monitor them closely). I suspect it will be handy when we have our baby as well! It's a bit more expensive, but we got this Salter scale which also converts to a toddler scale (the "tray" is removeable).

u/bostonbumper · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We bought this one back when LO was having some trouble gaining weight: Taylor Salter 914-WHLKR Baby Toddler Scale

It was great for making sure she took in enough milk during feedings and stayed on track with her growth. We didn't get obsessive about it and found it very useful. Plus, it's cool to see when those cluster feeds translate to growth spurts! Anyway, we've been happy with this scale and as a bonus it works as a toddler scale too.

u/tvandfash · 1 pointr/breastfeeding

Exactly. I used to wait to go to see my LC every week but then I just bought my own scale for $60 on amazon. Now I weigh her whenever I want.

u/TotoroTomato · 1 pointr/breastfeeding

Baby is 11 weeks old now. She got way stronger around and better start nursing around 9 weeks.

I use this scale, but it only measures in 10g or 1/2 oz increments so it probably won't work for you yet.

Will insurance pay for your scale rental? That is super expensive!

u/Lireth · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We got this one a couple months in when we were worried about our daughter gaining weight:

It worked great, and I’m happy to have it again for my new LO coming in January! Don’t use it obsessively, but weighing them every few days or week can really ease your mind about your baby gaining enough weight (or tip you off as to potential weight gain problems!).

u/dahjahjah · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My LO didn't get back to his birth weight until nearly a month. He gained 2 oz in 2 days so the ped thought he was fine, but mother's intuition made me bring him in for a weight check two weeks later. He'd only gained another 3 oz. I was not about to let that happen again so I bought a scale for my piece of mind. He's gaining great at 5 mo. now so I only use it when I'm curious what he weighs - maybe every other week. I don't obsess over it, but I'm glad I have it.

I bought this one:

I haven't checked it's accuracy to the scale at the doctor's office, but it does the job.

u/amuhlou · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We introduced a couple toys and the play gym at that age. I attached extra toys to the play gym to keep things interesting. You will be surprised how fast the grasping happens!

Tummy time is something we did not do (LO had terrible reflux) that I wish we had. If you prop a mirror in front of baby they will probably like it a lot.

u/wannabezen · 1 pointr/Parenting

Both of my kids started playing with a baby gym at 6 weeks - they loved it. Of course, they'd only play for a few minutes before getting tired at first.

I have loved the toys on this list for my infants, though we never had a tool toy

I also really recommend the winkel - - it was the first toy both of my kids picked up. We also have a variety of rattles and stacking cups.

u/BearDown1983 · 1 pointr/daddit

I got this for my daughter after our very first daddy-daughter errand day. (She was good - didn't cry and just chilled in the Baby Bjorn while I went shopping, so this was a "reward" - read: it was an excuse for me to buy her a toy.)

She was 2 months old then, 4 months old now... It's consistently been her favorite toy. It has a soft rattle, is easy for her to grip, and apparently tastes pretty good as well.

u/SrslyYouToo · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I have a 6 month old right now... We have a ton of toys but here are a few examples of the only stuff he plays with right now.


Monkey teether



He loves anything that crinkles, we have a crinkle book that came with his baby gym, that he doesn't like being under.... But he loves that book.

This can also wait too, but I highly recommend one of these, we started putting him in this thing at 4 months with a box under him so he could reach, he loves this thing and could bounce in it for hours.

u/JoslynMSU · 1 pointr/AskParents

So is the 6 month old starting to crawl yet or showing an interest? Some of my son's former favorites:

learn and play zoo This one was great because it was the only way for him to do tummy time

Manhattan toy company sensory thing It was just great for him to learn grasping and made a rattle. Wonderful in the car

Mortimer the moose Just a simple toy that makes noises (bell in one hoof, squeeker in the body, etc.

play tower May be a little advanced but he will just love watching it and start to understand where to put the balls once he get s a bit older

play cube This one he could sit and play with for a while. It's light so he can pick it up and move it

my personal favorite-spinning tower toy This is a favorite for all ages. A little young at 6 months but he will probably watch it in amazement. My son is now 14 months and understands the concepts well, but before he just loved watching the disks spin. It's been a toy given at many a 1st birthday parties

I hope that gives you a decent start. Good luck!

u/puppersandmeow · 1 pointr/February2018Bumpers

We have this rattle and she loves it. Easy to grab, chewable, and was a staple for most babies when I worked in childcare

u/shadeofmyheart · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

I recommend this one:

My 4 month old loves it because she doesn't have the dexterity to put something in her mouth directly yet (except her hands.. She LOVES to shove those in there). This one is great because she can just pull it towards her and something chewy will land in her mouth.

u/Penguin123 · 1 pointr/Parenting

Whenever our kids have gotten bad diaper rash, we've used Triple Paste Medicated Ointment for Diaper Rash. It's not cheap, but it really works like magic.

u/Neutrino_Blaster · 1 pointr/Parenting

Change the diaper as soon as possible after it is soiled.

Use sensitive wipes.

Apply a thick coating of Triple Paste diaper cream.This stuff is the best for extreme diaper rash. Desitin and A&D don't come close. Replace your A&D with triple paste right away. It's a little pricey, but once he gets back to normal, you won't need it anymore and you can go back to your routine. If you don't take the rest of my advice or you do something else, at least get the Triple Paste cream.

Did I say put it on thick? I mean THICK. Seriously, paint it on like you are frosting a cake. Next, sprinkle some unmedicated baby powder on top of the diaper cream. This helps the cream stay on that little butt a little longer so it can do its job. It works so well that he'll pee and it won't wash away the cream: the moisture will not touch his skin. Wipe as little as you need to at each changing and reapply. The protective spackle you have applied will give his delicate skin respite from the constant deluge of poop and pee, giving it time to heal.

It works. Good luck.

u/BobLoblaw_ · 1 pointr/Parenting

A Sqwish! is great because the baby can grasp it very easily. I have a 20 month old and I'm getting one for my 1 month old niece.

u/Logic_85 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

As a 4x parent, I am no expert, but more of a skilled advisor.

A "nose frida" is helpful for when a child gets congested and wont let you use "the bulb" on their nose.

Bumbos are nice for when they are a few months old - plop them in that bad boy and it helps them if they are tired of laying on their back:

Blankets & burp cloths galore - you can never have enough!

If you are a worrier, a SIDS monitor is helpful, but they are spendy: (and currently out of stock, but its a starting point!)

Maybe add some "days off work" to your list?

Also don't forget things for YOU - make sure you have food, clothes, nursing bras, nursing pads (to stop leakage), lanolin (to stop cracking) tissues, and netflix/hulus to last you a couple weeks (it will fly by and you wont' feel like dragging the kids to the store for just one or two things).

Otherwise--I say don't worry too much about it. As long as the kids have food to eat and diapers to poop in, you don't NEED a whole lot else (want is different!). Good luck!

u/EfficientUterus · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

A NoseFrida or similar nasal aspirator would be good to help clear congestion. We use the HydraSense brand aspirator with a baby saline spray and it's SO effective.

I still think it is gross, but at least use this product if you really feel the need to suck out your kid's snot.

u/briand92 · 1 pointr/NewParents

Reddit is definitely a great resource. However, make sure she knows about That is a great resource for new parents (mom & dad). Having a brand new baby at home can be a very stressful time. However, between all the screaming you and your wife will have some of the most precious and memorable experiences of your lives. Treasure those moments and the stressful times will feel worth the effort. Definitely pick up the Nose Frieda. It definitely helps having the right tool for the job. Also, pickup a copy of Be Prepared. It's a great (and funny) book for new dads.

u/Mediocre_Investment · 1 pointr/childfree

Yeah picking boogers out with their hands is gross, but somehow I find this (admittedly more hygienic) thing to be even nastier.

u/bookchaser · 1 pointr/RandomKindness

Add to your wish list a Nosefrida nasal aspirator, aka a snot snucker.

American stores only sell ball aspirators which do a poor job, aren't transparent so you can't see how poor a job they're doing, and are difficult to properly clean.

In virtually every other developed nation, parents use some variation of an aspirator like the Nosefrida (in one country they actually use an aspirator that hooks up to a vacuum hose!). It looks disgusting, but every parent I've given one to thanks me a year or two later and tells me they're still using it. IMHO, it's the best baby shower gift, and you never have to worry that someone else will give the same gift.

And skip any battery-powered nasal aspirators. They're less effective and exist only because manufacturers/distributors are convinced Americans will never accept a real snot sucker.

How it works: insert the aspirator into the opening of the baby's nostril. The aspirator (which is really just a big tube with a tapered tip) is attached to a long thinner tube and a filter. Suck on the other end of the tube, literally sucking the snot out of your sick baby's nose. Apply as much or as little force as is needed.

It's oodles better than multiple repeated, half-effective attempts using a ball aspirator. Both products make your baby cry, but one actually frees up the baby's breathing, and quickly at that.

u/ExoticCommunication · 1 pointr/UpliftingNews

Ah, if you stay home you may not need to, but if the insurance company provides you a pump for free, why not? Plus, if you need to take a trip without the kiddo (it happens!) or you get a plugged duct while baby is sleeping (it happens!) you may want the pump to help out.

We did a bassinet for the first, err... 3 months, 4 months? Eventually though they'll get too big for even a bigger bassinet. I think ours outgrew hers at around 6 months. The pack and plays are okay, but oh boy are they low to the floor (being... on the floor and all...) Maybe look at the convertible bed-crib things? 2 things in one go!

And yeah, wait for Target baby stuff sales. Worst case is you get a gift card that you then spend on diapers.

Oh a few items you didn't know you wanted (but you probably want!)

  1. Butt paste wand. Trust me. Get this. Diaper cream is a great thing, but it gets stuck EVERYWHERE.
  2. Baby changing caddy. Can you live without it? Yes. But is it nice when you're changing a kiddo at 2am and need everything in one place? Yep.
  3. Nose Frida. Seems gross, but oh man is it more effective than the bulbs in a lot of cases. When the baby gets its first cold, you'll need at least this, a bulb, maybe a Dyson with an attachment, an industrial vacuum tube... Maybe my kid was just a snot factory...

    That's about it. Maybe 1000 swaddles...
u/kaceface · 1 pointr/CautiousBB

Yay for your results! My son was born at 34 weeks, 4.5 pounds. It seems super small for people who aren't used to preemies, but as a NICU nurse, I can tell you those little ones are very feisty. Try not to worry too much about your cousin's baby :D

I'm not sure there's really any "cool" baby stuff, but here are some of my favorite random items:

  • Nosefrida. Seriously, just buy this. You need it.
  • Vick's rectal thermometer. Helpful for parents who aren't used to taking rectal temps. As you can see, you physically can't stick this in too far, so it seems less daunting. My only complaint is that it reads so quickly that occasionally it would read lower than I knew his temperature was. I would just repeat it and get the real result the second time around.
  • Safety 1st nail clippers. Has a light and everything so you can see what you're doing. My friend would actually make me cut her daughter's nails with my clippers when she came to visit, lol.

    I also think everyone should have some sort of baby carrying device. If you get something with buckles (like an Ergo), make sure the seat of the carrier is wide enough to support your baby from knee to knee. Think an Ergo, not a Baby Bjorn.

    Hmm, that's all for now. I'll try to think of something cool ;)

I've thrown everything on there that I know we will need/want. This way, whatever is left, we can still get a discount on. I have both pricey and not so pricey items. And I too am registered with Amazon. Here are a few of the cheaper items I have on my list if you want to check them out:
Skip Hop Spout Cover- Whale

Sasy Baby Disposable Diaper Baggies


Lamaze Freddie the Firefly

Green sprouts 10 Pack Waterproof Absorbent Terry Bibs (someone on here told me these rocked so added them lol)

u/xixoxixa · 1 pointr/Mommit

I am not a doctor, this is not medical advice, everything here can be found on google.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends palivizumab monoclonal antibody for high-risk infants and children with RSV - I don't know your risks, but worth knowing about it. Position here.

Gentle clapping over the chest (front and back) with cupped hands (like this) will help mobilize secretions in the chest.

If there's a bunch of junk in the nose, an aspirator like this can help. Also, a sinus rinse like this in conjunction with suction may help.

Upright as much as possible. warm humid air will help moisten the secretions in the chest, which will help them clear out.

If coughing continues for an extended period, then cold dry air (like driving around with the windows cracked open) will help reduce the inflammation in the airways. Sometimes popsicles will help too, as they indirectly cool all the air being breathed in, and what kid doesn't love popsicles, especially when they don't feel good.

Good luck.

I've heard this thingy is really good for baby congestion.

The other thing we do for Adalyn's congestion is take Vicks babyrub and put it on her chest and the bottom of her feet, then put socks on. I don't know why the feet thing works but it did for us. Hope she feels better soon :(

u/CrackaAssCracka · 1 pointr/daddit

There is actually a device that is effectively that. Let me find a link.

So there's this thing that looks like a baster:

And then there's this thing where you use your own suction:

I've used both on my kiddo. The second works surprisingly well

u/unwiredmatt · 1 pointr/Parenting

I agree with the advice to go to a doctor. Do you have a Nose Frida? The Frida works way better than the bulb aspirators.

u/ThePaleMare2 · 1 pointr/NewParents

This post really warmed my heart! I have an almost 6 month old right now, so we are in similar stages.


A lot of people already covered sleeping and eating. Right now our boy is teething too and he loves the Nuby brand teethers. We have a couple that look like keys and one that is like this:

He loves to rub them over his gums (or we did it for him before he got the coordination to do so himself). He really likes it when we put them in the fridge so that they get chilled (but never the freezer since that can cause burns).

u/ernieball · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

At that age my son was a fan of the munch mitt.

Lots of people recommend the banana.

Also some kind of frozen teether might help.

We tried frozen washcloths but my son wasn't a fan. I don't remember when we started giving Infant Motrin but... my son got his first tooth at 9 months and it was around then.

In a few months, once baby is eating solids, you might try handing her a frozen waffle. I know it doesn't help for now but put the idea in your back pocket. Now that we're working on molars it's the only thing that reaches the back of my son's mouth. And he loves food so he's more inclined to actually use/eat it.

u/snowboo · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

These. We leave them in the freezer till we need them.

u/SuzieQ4624 · 1 pointr/Parenting

Give him something cold to chew on, a little Tylenol or orajel for the pain and take a breather.

Like these teething toys u put in the freezer

Or this baby teething gel to numb the pain

u/shannonbananon2 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I really like the name Patrick, but I'm also biased because it's my brother's name haha

If they made an adult sized version of this, I'd wear it.

This is a super generic idea, but I think using chalkboard type labels on off white cardstock for food or something would be a really minimalistic and unique way of presenting things.

We were using Soothie brand, which has a round tip. Someone told me that the flatter style or the "dental" style stay in the mouth better, so we bought some Mam ones to use at night. It helped.

u/timeforstars · 1 pointr/beyondthebump
  • Spa Baby tub - My baby LOVES this. We could only start using it at around 4 weeks (and she's a pretty strong/big baby so you might have to wait if you have a smaller baby) but it's soooo worth it. No matter what fussing, I just plop her in it and she takes right to it. There's enough support that I don't need to be holding her all the time and she's free to move, and it's awesome for exercise/development as she learns to splash and use her legs to push herself up and down in the water. Honestly can't recommend this one enough.

    Playmat - Little girl loves her playmat. Ours has a light that hangs in the centre and flashes different colours, she can't take her eyes off of it.

    Avent Soothie pacifier - She took to these best, has had no nipple confusion and it's a lifesaver if your baby loves to comfort suck like she does.

    Also, I got a tonnnnnne of baby washcloths and I use them as wipes (theres a million websites with recipes for wipes solution, super easy) since she has a sensitive bum.
u/ADKitten · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

Don't know that I'll be adding anything new, but here's what helps with our son (almost 6 months):


This sound machine, specifically the ocean waves sound. The projection also helps sometimes.

Singing his lullaby Goodnight, Demon Slayer

These pacifiers

Holding him up in a burping position and walking around.

Rubbing his belly in a clockwise or downward motion.

Hope it helps and good luck!

Have any of you tried the sink "bloom" things? are these any good?

(like this: )

(twins coming in a few months; terrified)

u/EspressoBeans · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We tried the baby bathtub but he kept slipping down in it so a few times I just sat in our tub with a thin swaddle blanket on my lap to prevent him from slipping and bathed him while I held him. He really enjoyed it but I wanted an easier solution since it was tricky getting out without my husband there who would hold our son as i climbed out and dried off.

Now we use this foam flower in our kitchen sink and our son loves it! He doesn't slip and just relaxes. I think the foam also traps more of the heat and keeps him warm.

Blooming Bath - Baby Bath (Canary Yellow)

u/icallthebigspoon · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

We used ours in our shower for a bit when our bathtub was being repaired. We didn’t have much of an issue- just dump it slowly. I also read your update about your 6 month old not sitting up confidently yet. Have you looked into something like this? It would give some additional support either in a laundry basket, the ikea tub, or in a large sink (if you have one).

u/themehboat · 1 pointr/pregnant

I used the Angelcare bath support rather than a mini tub.

Angelcare Baby Bath Support, Aqua

You just put it in the shower or regular tub, and it keeps the baby from slipping. It makes it much easier to bathe the baby on your own. And the blue one is only $13.29 right now!

Comotomo Teether




u/Comfyjamjams · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

It is hard to know what each individual baby will like at different phases, but having a variety at your disposal is very helpful.

This is one of the first things my daughter liked

She also liked this one early on

As time went by, she wound up liking munchkin frozen gel ones (used with a pacifier leash)

And the comotomo one with the “fingers”

We had baby banana for a first toothbrush and it doubled as a well loved teether

Eta - also soft books, especially the ones with dangly silicone shapes for teething were huge in those early months. Have plenty!

Oh wow! Congrats! My cousin just has a baby and she had dozens and dozens of diapers on hand. Never enough. Also some first aid supplies, for a thermometer I'd suggest one of the forehead ones because it can be hard for the baby to hold it in their mouth long enough to get a good reading. Here's one I found on amazon, but you can always get it at a drug store :)

u/illnessaxnietyman · 1 pointr/Anxiety

Where do I start? I'm 19, a premedical student at SUNY, University at Buffalo.

Over the summer my brother was diagnosed and passed away from an extremely rare form of stomach cancer at the age of 37. The doctors told us that in their 30+ years they haven't seen this kind of cancer in someone under the age of 70.

During that time I developed similar symptoms, nausea, extreme weight loss, GERD, etc. My doctor ran the whole shabang, CT w/ contrast, Barium Swallow, Blood Tests, Upper GI Endoscope. I just had some stomach inflammation, probably from the stress, and IBS from the stress. That since has gone away. But those tests came over the course of weeks. I was fantasizing about the worst everyday.

Fast forward into the semester, I'm doing fine, until I hear about this ebola thing on the news. For the first couple weeks I joke about it and how the media exaggerates it like its in the water system. Until I get a bit sick (probably a cold, around a 99.5ish temp) two weeks ago. I obsessed about symptoms and checked my temperature every ten minutes, all in the 99.0 - 99.3 range for the last 12ish days. I don't even know how accurate my thermometer is, since its a forehead one.(

I finally started getting over the ebola panic until I stumbled upon this article,(, then I realized that I used one of the squinter bottle variations to clean my sinuses Nov. 5 - 7. I didn't use tap water, but I may have used filtered water from my own water filter thing that my dad installed. I think I boiled that water too, but I don't remember, but I'm 90% sure I did. I spent around 5 hours last night researching my water filter and the bacteria the causes the infection. I finally calmed down when I realized I probably would have been dead by now and that I don't even think this bacteria lives in upstate NY, since it's too cold...but I'm still counting the days...

Jeeez, I could go on forever, but ya, it sucks. I used to have a little hypochondriacal attitude, but never this bad. My stomach problems are coming back, probably the irritable bowel syndrome. But damn, ever since I read about that bacteria it kicked in my hypochondria hardcore mode.

I take 0.5 mg of Clonazepam as needed. Normally every couple of days before bed.

I also have a bunch of stuff on my registry that is inexpensive ($10-$25) for friends and if my coworkers decide to do a shower here which they have done for other new moms in the past. Here are some of the things I have on mine
Sleeping gowns so you don't have to unsnap the onesie for midnight changes

A baby tub

Tub Thermometer

Baby thermometer

Nose Frieda which others have mentioned

preferred bath/care products

Cloth diaps which make fantastic burp cloths/cleanup

Nursing pillow also good for tummy time

Plus some other odds and ends. People will also buy stuff that they like, so you'll probably get stuff that was not on your list and that is ok. You can also request to have a "diapers n wipes" shower which a friend did since she was on her 4th child, and she probably got 2 months worth of diapers and wipes out of it if not more. Also, make sure you get multiple covers for your changing pad, it'll be nice to have more than 1 when it needs washing! Congratulations!

u/vtlatria · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

My most unexpected useful item was this butt spatula for diaper cream. I thought it was dumb and bought it as a joke, but man does it keep things speedy and clean!

u/SonicEuthanasia · 1 pointr/predaddit

I thought of another couple of smallish things that are really parent quality of life things:

  • Stock up on some hand sanitizer bottles and strategically place them around the house. We have one right by the front door so that guests get the idea to wash their hands immediately. I also have one on the changing table and hit it before I handle the diapers.

  • Make sure all the hand soap in your house is moisturizing soap, because you're going to be washing your hands a lot. My wife had some Bath and Body Works scented soaps in the bathrooms that absolutely destroyed my hands after a few days.

  • Grab some Bag Balm while you're at it. This helps with a lot of things for both parents and babies. We were told to put a little bit on their circumcision sites and such to help keep it hydrated. It's also what I used to repair the skin on my hands from the hand soap.

  • We have a little diaper cream brush and some Aquafor near the changing table to spread on their little butts after changing. This helps the merconium and poo avoid sticking to their skin, which makes it less painful to change diapers and easier to clean up.
u/Arewethereyet10 · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

It's actually a silicone spatula looking thing.

u/mycoldfeet · 1 pointr/clothdiaps

We used coconut oil (applied with the BabyBum Brush for every change at that stage. It washes out of cloth no problem. Using cloth wipes helps with irritation (we use a diluted solution of Dr. Bronner's, coconut oil, and aloe gel).

For disposable wipes, now we use Amazon wipes. Checked Environmental Work Group's site for each of the ingredients, no high scores there and no irritation on our kiddo.

Edit: When he started teething/ eating solids and diaper rash got REAL, we started using Babyganics Non-Petroleum Soothing Protective Ointment. We get it with coupons @ Target, Babies R Us, or BuyBuyBaby. It runs about $10/jar.

u/lacrimaeveneris · 1 pointr/beyondthebump

It's the Baby Bum Diaper Cream Brush formally... I call it the butt spatula because that's what it looks like. It's totally a luxury item at the price, but I love mine hard. I don't get diaper cream under my nails (yuck), and I find the cream goes on thicker and more evenly with said spatula. And it gets into those chubby crotch rolls my kiddo has.

I swear I'm not a schill, I just love this silly little bit of plastic. The theory is that the suction cup keeps it attached... I find that it sort of works. I just clean it off with a wipe at the end of a change and we're good to go.

u/avathedot · 1 pointr/Nanny

If your skin hasn't responded to antibiotics, it's possible you're dealing with Malassezia Folliculitis (fungal "acne"). This guide helped me clear my skin in about two months after spending five years dealing with pimples that wouldn't respond to typical acne treatments.

Of course, YMMV, but my current routine is nothing in the AM, PM shower using Head and Shoulders on hair/body (, Pantene on hair (, and sulfur soap on my face ( Right after shower, I slap on some aloe vera gel ( followed by MSM gel ( and then Cerave Baby Cream ( Twice a week I put Nizoral ( on my face and let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then wash it off. I've run this full routine by a licensed dermatologist who told me the sulfur and Nizoral would do the heavy lifting to keep the Malassezia at bay, and as far as I can tell those two items are the keystones of this routine. Everything else I use because the sulfur and Nizoral can be very drying. All of those products I pulled from that skincare blog, so I would read through it and see if the skin condition addressed there matches what you're experiencing.

Good luck. This is the routine that made my skin do a complete 180 in February after I saw no improvement from derm prescribed antibiotics and benzoyl peroxide.

u/CarolineH10 · 1 pointr/BabyBumps

I thought this may help my fellow new parenters out there. If you're anything like me, you scoured the internet checking off every "must-have" baby items list before your LO was born, but I still ended up having Amazon deliver things about every other day for the first couple months.

As a disclaimer, I'm not saying these are MUST HAVE items. I just went through my Amazon purchases and I'm writing down some things that I purchased in those 3 AM wee hour Amazon shopping sprees.

Here's a compilation of everything that I felt I missed in my preparation for my baby girl:

  • An electric nail file. I was terrified to cut her nails myself. This is a safe and easy alternative.
  • A Swaddle UP. This allows her hands to be by her face, which she preferred her first month or two.
  • Friedababy MediFrida. My baby had a rough go of reflux and was diagnosed with Ranitidine pretty quickly. This helped us give her doses with no fuss!

  • Comfy shorts for me. I was unprepared for my post C-Section body and clothing options.

  • Gripe Water / Colic Drops. My reflux baby had some rouuuuugh nights. These helped? Maybe? Witching hour SUCKS.
  • A bigger swaddle that ZIPS. Screw trying to unvelcro my child out of her swaddle quietly at 2 AM.
  • A mirror to help with tummy time. She still hates tummy time. But she does like looking at herself for a while. So I count that as a win.
  • MORE. BOOKS. you don't have enough. I promise. After the 15th time of reading "The Rainbow Fish" you'll appreciate a change of pace. I personally recommend, "The Wonky Donkey."
  • Trial and error pacis. Your kid will have a preference and you'll just have to figure out which. Once you figure it out, buy extras.

  • Bibs / ABSORBENT Burp Cloths. Again... You don't have enough. And the little tiny rags that Gerber tries to sell at Target will not do the trick. Get some THICK in your burp cloth regimen.


    I hope this helps! Let me know if there's anything you would add to the list.

Honestly, I thought Sophie the giraffe was over-rated, but I caved and bought it anyway. I was right. My son has absolutely no interest in it at all. His favorite teether has always been this - - which is a lot easier for tiny baby hands to grasp. It was the first thing that he could hold.
