Christmas Gift List For Babies

Baby's first Christmas is a big deal for parents. Hours are spent shopping for the hottest toy of the season only to find out that babies are more interested in the bright wrapping paper gifts come in. So since Christmas Eve is only one week away and I want you to have a stress-free Christmas, here's a list of 5 traditional toys and the corresponding household items babies prefer*. Yup, that's right, items that are just lying around where you live. So I'm actually saving you money too! Just don't make the mistake of putting them in gift bags or else that's all your baby's going to play with.

Moo, Baa, La La La!, by Sandra Boynton

moo baa lalala book review

My mom read to me a lot when I was a kid. I guess it was the shared reading time with her that made me enjoy and love reading. A love for reading is also something I want to pass on to my twin babies, Audrey and Antonino. And so, I read aloud to them even when they were still in my tummy. Then, when we brought them home from the hospital, Joey and I included reading as part of their bedtime routine. There were even nights when we would read the same book to them 5 times straight because they would end up crying when we were done and the only way to calm them down was to read the book over and over. Reading has become a great bonding activity for our family and I can see that the twins have become very interested in books which is why I am always on the lookout for books that will cultivate this interest.

More On Baby Laundry

human nature baby detergent review
Baby laundry is a big part of every new parent's life. A few weeks ago, I shared some tips on tackling baby laundry as well as my preferred laundry detergent. We normally buy 3 bottles of it at a time which would last us a little over 3 months. When we opened our last bottle of detergent, I went to the the Human Nature online store to reorder. This was when I found out that they launched a new detergent especially made for babies. Talk about late to the party. So I quickly placed an order to be able to try it.

Twin Tips: Things We Buy In Bulk For The Twins

twin tips bulk buy for twins

Two babies in one go - efficient, right? Having twins has taught us to do things efficiently which is what made us decide to by some things in bulk. For us, buying in bulk means not having to worry about running out of supplies, less trips to the store, and saving money. Being Ilocanos (known for being frugal), Joey and I always compute the price per piece or gram of stuff we buy and buying in bulk always makes that figure go down. This is very important since having twins means double the expenses most of the time.
