7 months already? Where has the time gone? At 7 months old, Blaire is just ready to go, go, go. Some of the milestones we’ve hit now at 7 months are teething, eating, and playing! Naturally, our must-haves will cover those three major areas.
Blaire’s first tooth popped through almost two weeks ago, and the teething tablets have been a life saver! On really rough days, I’ve caved and given her a dose of Tylenol. Up next… Now that Blaire is eating real food, the spoons are a definite must-have! The little mesh feeder is nice, because you can put food in it without having to worry about your baby choking. The puffs are especially perfect on the go. (Since we’ve just started with these, I am still breaking them in half before she eats them.) The shopping cart/high chair cover is amazing! You never know what germs are on shopping carts, or even worse, public high chairs. I can’t believe the disgusting leftover food I’ve seen on them. Ew. Blaire hasn’t been swaddled while she sleeps since she was about two months old. But she’s had some rough nights since that tooth popped through and this has been the best! It helps her fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer. She has this crazy habit of rubbing her eyes while she’s trying to fall asleep and while she’s sleeping – so it always ends up waking her up. Swaddling keeps those little restless hands in check!
There you have it… the things I couldn’t live without this month (in addition to her teething favorites, of course!). What are (or were) your 7-month-old’s favorite things? xo
