6-9 Month Favorites | Merloe's Must Haves

Tuesday, August 10, 2021



Halfway through her first year of life! Merloe has reach many milestones during her 6-9 months including crawling, sitting up, pulling up on furniture and standing. She's a great sleeper, due to many of these items and loves to drink water from her cup. Here are a few of Merloe's must haves...


Happy Baby Teether Crackers - Her bottom two teeth popped through and ever since she's been chewing on everything! She loves these crackers and they dissolve quickly which makes this nervous mama more comfortable. 

Munchkin Straw Cup - She loves to drink from her straw cup. I've done some research and I believe the earlier you start on the straw cup and skip the sippy cup -- the better! She took to this right away after we got the approval from her pediatrician to introduce water and she loves it! 

Mushie Silicone Bib - Very easy to clean. You can toss it in the dishwasher or hand wash it. I had some fabric ones, but these are just too easy to use I always grab these first.

ezpz Tiny Cup - Another option for introducing a cup. I took the Feeding Littles course and they recommended this cup. Merloe loves drinking from her cup - with mommy & daddy's assistance! 

ezpz Utensils - Same brand as above, very easy to use! Short and wide handle so it's easy for baby to grab.


Kyte Baby 1.0 Sleep Bag - Kyte is made from bamboo, making it SO soft and stretchy. We love all of our Kyte brand products. We sized up to the 6-18 month in 1.0 tog (based on the temperature of your home). I really think Merloe sleeps much better in this sleep bag. They are very spacious so I know it'll last a long time. Just be sure to check the sizing on your babe so it doesn't cover their mouth while sleeping.

Hatch Sound Machine - Again, one of our favorite most used products. Add this to your baby registry!!

VAVA Baby Monitor - I wanted a monitor with NO wi-fi and this one came highly recommended. And it does not disappoint. I actually had an issue with the charging cord and their Customer Service sent me a new one right away with no hassle.

Cleaning & Care

Munchkin Baby Bath Tub - Merloe eventually outgrew her other bath tub so we moved to this one. We currently don't have a bathtub so this makes it easy for us to give her a sink bath. It has a small drain at the bottom which allows it to quickly air dry. 

Grab Green Laundry Detergent Pods (Rosewood Scent) - These smell beautiful! A mixture of rosewood essential oils, these natural pods make it easy to clean her laundry and removes stains. 

Water Wipes - During our beach trip, Merloe got her first really bad diaper rash. Probably from the traveling, moisture in the air and teething (mom's you know what this means) she started to bleed a little. So we quickly ran to Target and picked these up. She never seemed to cry when we use these!

Toys & Such
Five Minute Stories - Seth and I both read to her every night, but we were quickly repeating books so I found this online and it supplied us with multiple 5 minute stories! Just enough time for her nighttime baba. 

Playpen - Now that she's more active we had to get an official playpen. This one is HUGE! So double check your measurements. But it allows her to move around on her own and I know she's safe inside.  

Bibs Pacifier - She's a binky baby. These are her favorite and have been from the beginning. We just went up to Size 2 so I was worried she would notice a difference in nipple size, but nope! They're still her favorite.

Skip Hop Crawl Toy - I really think this helped her learn how to crawl. She loved trying to catch this toy and scoot on her tummy before getting the courage to fully crawl.


Did I miss any of your favorites? What toys or gadgets did your babe like?
