Family Friday: SoftSip Food Pouch Top

If you don’t have any use for these, then your child has way better dexterity/self-control than mine! The minute I would hand my son a pouch, he would promptly squeeze the entire thing all over his face or shirt. I like these for several reasons — your child can’t squeeze the puree out without biting or sucking from the top, they keep their teeth and gums from scraping on the plastic, and they are easy to clean. With one of them, I cut the piece off that serves to cap the top — my son was distracted by it while eating, so off it went. Not holding the pouch while my son is eating them freed up many minutes from my day. They are $7.99 for two at Amazon. ChooMee Food Pouch Top

Organizing Thursday: Baby Briefcase Paperwork Organizer

There’s a lot of paperwork that comes with having a baby: hospital discharge forms, insurance documentation, baby registry details, etc. In my post-birth haze, I was very happy that I received this Baby Briefcase as a gift. There was no way I would have been able to keep track of all of the loose paperwork related to my son if I didn’t have an easy place to stash it. Inside, there are several folders with pre-made tabs in every type of category you can think of. Now that my husband and I are out of the weeds, we don’t have to use it that frequently, but when we need to locate any important document, we know just where to look. The organizer is $28 at Amazon. Baby Briefcase Paperwork Organizer

Family Friday: Wool Runners

I’ve been seeing these shoes pop up on my social media feeds for a while, but I didn’t pull the trigger right away. I don’t have great luck with ordering shoes online due to having tough feet to fit (narrow, narrow heel, and flat arches — ugh). What finally convinced me was a rave review from a friend. They have quickly become the only sneakers I wear on the weekend. They’re lightweight, breathable, and stylish, and the company, Allbirds, has a generous return policy. Now that the weather is turning warmer, I’m considering purchasing a pair from their Tree line, which is made from a lighter material. According to their website, they have two “concept stores,” one in SF and one in NYC — and their shoes are also available at Nordstrom. They make men’s shoes, too, and last year they launched a kids’ line called Smallbirds that starts at size 5T and is ridiculously cute. The pictured shoes are $95 at Nordstrom. Wool Runners

Family Friday: Booster Pads Diaper Doublers

Since I discovered this product, my baby has not slept without one of these in his diaper — and I don’t want to find out what happens when he doesn’t. I would describe these as big maxi-pad-looking things that you put inside the diaper to absorb more liquid overnight. Previously, I had to wash crib sheets every morning after my baby soaked through his diaper and pajamas while he slept. This product has completely stopped that from happening, and saves me from having to buy two types of diapers: his regular daytime diapers AND a nighttime diaper. Another plus is that we used them on a recent flight to avoid having to change him either at our seats or inside a cramped airplane bathroom. These are my (not so secret) mom weapon! These are $10.99 at Amazon (for 30 pads). Sposie Booster Pads Diaper Doublers

Family Friday: GrandPro Tennis Sneaker

These men’s sneakers were getting rave reviews in the comment section over at Corporette for looking great and being comfortable. For more casual offices, these say “I am dressed casually, but also am professional,” and for the weekends they say “I am dressed down but still care about my appearance.” Are they the most stylish sneakers in the world? No, but if I bought them for my husband he’d shrug and then wear them into the ground, which is all the excitement I can get from him when it comes to shoes. Cole Haan GrandPro Tennis Sneaker

Family Friday: Soft Booster Seat

When your kid gets too old for a high chair or a booster seat with straps (we liked this one from Graco), this booster seat from Prince Lionheart is a great option. We like it so much that we’re on our second one — we got the first when our son was 6, and now that he’s almost 8, we’ve bought a replacement. (The first seat got a crack on it, but I think that two years isn’t too bad, considering that he uses it two to three times a day, every day.) My son is about 4 feet tall, so he’s not really too short to sit on a chair without anything on top — and yes, he’s 8 years old — but the extra height helps, and he likes the slightly squishy seat more than the wooden chairs we have at the table. The booster is pretty easy to clean and comes in brown, dark gray, pink, blue, orange, and green. (Not all colors are available at Amazon right now.) It’s $24–$35 and Prime eligible, and it offers free returns on everything but the brown. Prince Lionheart Soft Booster Seat
