Baby accessories, clothes and general stuff you growing baby needs

They grow oh-so-fast from this point on. From home to the playground, it's time to re-evaluate your baby-care equipment and add a few extra basics.

Baby sling. Carrying your little one around in one of these pouches frees up your hands and also soothes your baby since she's held close to your body.

Pants with elastic waists. Since she's growing at an incredible rate, think about getting pants with stretchy waists that she can wear a little longer. They also slip on and off easily during diaper changes.

Mini blankie. A thin, soft piece of fabric may be just the thing for soothing and comforting your little one. As your baby gets older, this blanket may end up being her official blankie or transitional object provides emotional support when you're away from home, on the road, or during naptime and bedtime.

Soft small toys. Soft toys are ideal for babies at this age. They are easy to grasp and squeeze. They are especially helpful during the teething stage when kids want to explore everything with their mouths.

As long as you focus on the essentials, there's less risk of you stocking up on things you'll probably never use. Here's to happy, clutter-free parenting!
