Favorite Baby Items - Sophie the Giraffe and Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddle Wraps

With a few of my friends being pregnant, I have been shopping for baby items.

Here are a two items that I adore (and have myself) and make amazing baby shower gifts

Lifesaver when Masha was teething.  Don't let the price defer you from buying.  This is the best item I bought for her, she used it every time her little teeth were coming through.  The toy is made out of 100% rubber and uses food grade paint (super safe!)  The French know what they are doing.  And the packaging is adorable.  These actually remind me of the rubber toys I use to have as a child back in the Ukraine.  Very sturdy rubber that lasts a long time.  Can definitely be passed down from one baby to the next.  Great gift for a mommy to be. 


I am the biggest fan of these! Best swaddling wraps out there.  Made out of a breathable fabric that keeps your baby warm when its chilly and cool when its hot.  Love the size as well, 47 x 47.  There is no way Masha was able to squirm out of this one.   I still use these with Masha especially during the spring/summer.  The fabric gets softer with every wash and the prints are gorgeous.  I bought myself two sets of these and let me tell you, I don't ever look back. The boutique version is a tad bit pricier however, its made out of bamboo which makes it even softer.  I remember when I first purchased these, my mom was excited because she mentioned back when I was a baby, she used muslin wraps too.  She didn't know they were still around.  Great baby shower gift, they will thank you later :)

What are some of you favorite baby items that you absolutely cannot live without?  Please share below.
