Medela Calma

This breastmilk feeding set comes with an all-stage nipple, two bottles, one cap and two lids. It's designed to help transition a baby from breast to bottle.

They worked amazingly for my 3-month-old-son, Tristan. He adapted to the nipple well. I liked that I could use the nipple on the 8 oz and 4 oz Medela bottles I had. It is a little tricky at first to get it put back together after cleaning the nipple. I would recommend this to any parent who has an infant that is dealing with reflux or gas issues. I noticed a significant improvement in my sons demeanor after drinking from this bottle. He is mostly breastfed, but when he needs to drink from a bottle, I make sure this is the first one he uses."

These Thermal-Aid animals are fantastic. Perfect for those bumps, bruises and other minor moments of sadness that kids experience. Not too cold, but still soothing enough for temporary relief. Although I would not recommend them for serious injuries or pain, I definitely recommend both the regular sized and mini Thermal-Aid animals for all families with young kids.

WaterWipes

These wipes don't contain any chemicals - simply water and grapefruit seed extract. 

Water Wipes

 

Pack of 60 wipes/$5, waterwipes.com/us

 

Although I no longer have an infant, my youngest guy has sensitive skin, so I'm always looking for chemical-free products. These wipes cleaned a dirty bottom just as well as any of the more mainstream options.
