If you’re celebrating a First Christmas this year with a baby under one and Christmas stocking are a tradition in your home, you’re probably wondering what to put in a baby’s stocking that might actually get used.
We’ve done five “First Christmases” and stocking stuffers for babies are always the hardest to figure out. So let my sleepless nights save your some time, because I’ve come up with a list of completely useful stocking stuffers for infants and babies!
Whether you’re going all out for for your first baby’s first Christmas, or looking to fill a stocking for your youngest because siblings will expect it, this list contains some tried and true options.
When you’re narrowing down you choices, I’ve found it’s best to choose things your baby will use in the next three months. I know I’m guilty of buying something way ahead of time and then not being able to figure out where I put it when I actually need it. By keeping stocking stuffers for infants to items that will be used in the next three months or so, you’ll be less likely to misplace them and you’ll spend less time storing them!
Baby Banana has branched out from their classic Banana shaped brush to offer these adorable and fun infant toothbrushes! The magical unicorn and mystical dragon brushes are made of food grade silicone for babies ages 3-24 months. The brush massages gums and teeth and is freezer and dishwasher safe!
