3 Baby Products That Are Growing With Us

We have made it a point this summer to get out & about with our toddler, especially since the weather is perfect & she is very active.

With busy days & a growing girl, it amazes me how fast 22 months goes by.

Just last summer, she was drinking bottles on the regular, crawling like a seal & fitting into 9 month clothes. Now, you can barely keep up with her, she has a million things to say & she cannot get enough of “outside” time.

Scarlett on the Go 3 Products Growing With Us Tickled Scarlett

As I cross things off of our summer activity list, its crazy to think off all the things we use to use or have to bring with us when Scarlett was little. As our little ones grow, their needs change & many things, from clothing to toys, are outgrown fast.

Our diaper bag has become less & less bulky over the months since she doesn’t have to have as many items as before & packing for day trips are much easier.

We do not plan on having another little so we have practically given away all our baby gear. As first time parents, you try a lot of new things & learn very quickly that not everything works.

Luckily, it is incredibly easy these days to research & find items that are of good quality & that will grow with you & your family.

I can think of a dozen or so baby products we have been using with Scarlett since she was a baby. There are many items out there & I am excited to hear about your favorite products that have grown with you!

These are the three products that are growing with us & that we continue to fall in love with everyday.

Here are our three baby products that are growing with us!

LILLEbaby Carriers -Airflow & All Seasons

I had heard of babywearing while I was pregnant and decided to do some research on wraps & soft-structured carriers. There are many options out there to choose from, so I wanted to be educated on what was available.

Safety, finding something with longevity & something that both Matt & I could use where the most important factors to us.

Through social media and old friendships, Matt connected me with a local mom who at the time, had a baby boutique out of her home (I now work for her at her boutique). She was kind enough to invite me over to allow me to try a Happy Wrap & the beautiful LILLEbaby carrier.

I was 7 months pregnant so trying on was a bit tough, but I was sold on both of them. Once we had Scarlett, we were carrying her from day one.

I had no idea how much babywearing would change me.

The closeness & the bond created has been like no other & being hands-free has allowed me my freedom to do everyday tasks as well, while enjoying them with her.

I was incredibly lucky to be able to have someone show me how to use it & to show me options that could work for us. I wrote a blog post 3 Things to Know About Baby Carriers: Babywearing Essentials. In the post, I share the importance of finding the best carrier for you & your family & ways to do so.

By far, my soft structured carrier has been my favorite. The LILLEbaby carry allows you to carry your little one safely, without an insert, starting at 7 pounds & goes all the way to 45 pounds. My first carrier, and still my favorite, is the Complete Airflow.

With the all mesh panel, it is extremely breathable & you both stay cool in warmer months. Even during the winter, I rarely ever have had to layer us, as we both usually have a coat or sweater on anyways.

This is were the All Seasons carrier comes into play.

My husband gifted me a LILLEbaby All Seasons carrier for Christmas the year Scarlett was born. I am still in love with it, especially the color.

It has the exact same structure as the Airflow, except it has an all over canvas panel with a zip down element right on the front. This exposes a panel of mesh so you have some breathability similar to the Airflow.

I still use my carrier with Scarlett at 22 months & will continue to use one long into her toddler years. It is about time to upgrade to one of their many CarryOn options, which is a larger carrier for toddlers.

We had borrowed one to try on a recent hike & what a difference it makes! I tried it with my nephew as well & he loved it.

Diaper Bag- Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F

I do have to admit, we had a different, very sad diaper bag for the first two months after Scarlett was born. It stained, ripped & the structure was just not what we were looking for. Just like a baby carrier, finding a good diaper bag for you is important.

I did my research a bit late, but I found out that there were a few quality & reputable diaper bag companies out there. This is when I stumbled upon Ju-Ju-Be.

JuJuBe BFF Bag Tickled Scarlett Blog

Ju-Ju-Be offers a variety of bags & on-the-go accessories for any family looking for style, quality & versatility. They have something for everyone from tote style bags to small purse sets. There is something for everyone.

I wanted a bag that wasn’t too big that offered a bit of everything & I found that in the Ju-Ju-Be B.F.F.

There are a lot of details that attracted me to this bag. You could tell a lot of attention went into detailing the bag, from the backpack & over the shoulder styling to the storage pockets.

No matter what you pack in this bag, you can always find it.

I love wearing the bag backpack style as it really allows you to get around. We keep the extra strap in the car just in case my husband wants to use the bag.

They are also machine washable so if you needed to, it can be tossed right in. They come out looking brand new. Plus, extra bonus, they have a lifetime warranty.

Feel free to check out some of their cute prints & styles on my boutique website. We have them available at our shop to see in person!

Amber Teething Necklace- Momma Goose

We had received this Momma Goose necklace as a Christmas Gift the year Scarlett was born. This was one of the gifts as we had asked for and really wanted for her since I had heard such great things about them.

Amber Teething Necklaces are a natural form of pain relief for little ones during teething. The amber beads are a tree resin that has analgesic properties & when worn close to the area of pain, our bodies heat the resin and it provides the anti-inflammatory properties to the wearer.

7 Months Amber Teething Necklace Tickled Scarlett Blog

Thank goodness we got one because not even a month later, right around when she turned four months old, teething came on full force. It first started with slobbering constantly, chewing on everything & then her two teeth came in at 6 months. She wore her necklace everyday up until her 1st birthday. By then, she had 8 teeth!

Every child is different and it is important to try these on your little so that it is the correct. Working at the boutique, we have someone lookig for one daily & asking how/if they work. I personally know three littles that have used them on the regular.

It makes a huge difference in their overall pain during teething, as well as during the tough molar stages once they hit toddler years.

This is where we are at now. We haven’t had her wearing the necklace much since no new teeth were coming in, but there seemed to be something going on.

Scarlett just turned 22 months old & we noticed her temperament & mood had changed the last month. Sure enough, two huge molars were popping half way threw in the back of her jaw. OW! Wish us luck.

  • I agree and I wish I had invested in a quality diaper bag. After a year nine is showing much wear and tear and I’m thoroughly disappointed. I also need to dig out my amber necklace in hopes it could help with some toddler teething.

    • Oh bummer I am so sorry your bag didn’t last! Yes…the amber necklace has been super helpful! Thank you for reading πŸ™‚

  • PrettyMummaSays

    What a great post. I also have my daughter’s diaper bag intact and her stroller too. We buy so many things for our first born. My second one plays with the same toys we bought for our first born. Both the kids have great love for each other’s things.

    • Love great sturdy items. I love hand me downs. I had a few girlfriends that gave us a TON of clothes in numerous sizes. I have rarely had to buy her anything in that department.

  • So much agree with you ..I got a customized diaper and clothing baby bag for me when my kid took birth and it just went very well..it was a constant companion for nearly 2years!

    • It sounds like a beautiful bag! Love when something lasts a long time 😊

  • These are all great. I wear my kids amber necklace as a bracelet sometimes. Great investments

    • That is a great idea! I have been interested in trying out an adult one too πŸ’™ they are very durable!

  • I love all of these! I have heard such great things about the teething necklace from SO many people! I definitely need to get my son one.

    • The necklaces make such a difference with the little ones. I would be happy to help you find one…my boutique carries them 😍❀

  • I love ALL 3 of these! I have all 3 lol! Definitely products you get your moneys worth from!

    • That’s so neat to hear! I love meeting other Mamas that use Ju-Ju-Be & LILLEbaby like me 😍

  • Shell

    I love that cute diaper bag!

    • Thank you so much! Great quality and lots of prints ❀❀❀

    • Thank you so much! Great quality bag and lots of prints ❀❀❀

  • These are great items and definitely thoughtful! I love that bag – I wish I had one now actually! And the LILLEbaby carrier is perfect.

    • They have the cutest bags and they came out with wallets & accessories a handful of months ago! We may need to upgrade to a toddler carrier soon ❀❀❀

  • With both kids I was never a fan of diaper bags. Hated the idea of carrying one more thing around. I did love the baby carriers though. My second was 10lbs when he was born and didn’t last as long as I would have liked him to in his carrier. Those things were the best!

    • Yes those carriers come in handy! She asked tonight to be carried to the park so I had to say yes!!! Have to get those snuggles in when we can ❀❀❀

  • je55iemullin5

    I need a better carrier with our next baby! We bought an Infantino because it was all we could afford, but it definitely did not grow with us.

    • It is good to find a carrier that is comfortable always. I would be happy to help you find one or some cities have baby carrier libraries you can try them out at!

  • the diaper bag looks awesome! its so hard to find a truely functional one that grows with your needs

    • Yes it has done us well and look forward to using it for another year or so & then passing it along 😍

  • Ai

    What an awesome post! Definitely (still) love baby-wearing! It has made going out and about so much easier!

    • It makes everything so much easier and I can’t get enough snuggles, especially since she is getting so big! Thanks for reading!!!

  • alytyghter

    I wish I had invested in a quality diaper bag with my first as I ended up having 2 more after and my diaper bag just didn’t cut it. I’m still thinking about investing in a new one even though my kids are 4, 2 and 8 months.

    I’m obsessed with my baby carrier. I bought a Tula and baby wear all the time!

    The one thing I haven’t tried with any of my kids is an amber teething necklace but I’ve been wanting to since I had my second. I think it’s time to try one out with my last little guy especially because teeth are right around the corner.

    • Thank you for taking a moment to read my post!

      A good diaper bag is WELL worth the investment, next to a carrier I think. I love Tula carriers! I don’t own one, but have borrowed one and it was lovely.

      I love our amber necklace. We sell them at the boutique I manage and would be happy to help you find one 😍

  • We use all of these products too! I absolutely love my Lillebaby…such a lifesaver at times (especially with two kids).

    • Aren’t the LILLEbaby carriers so amazing?! I wish I could gift one to all my Mama friends! I wore my little one & my nephew together once…it was a blast!

  • makeamomsmile

    I love the name Scarlett, so pretty! All these products are great that they can grow with you as baby grows. Especially love the carrier! My kids are way past baby days but great ideas to keep in mind for gifts!

    • Thank you for reading and the sweet comment. My Grandma called me Scarlett growing up, so we thought it was fitting. Yes, carriers are a WONDERFUL gift idea. SO helpful!

  • I loved loved loved our amber teething bracelet (I found a bracelet since they wouldn’t allow a necklace at daycare and I was just a little paranoid about safety) Soooo good though! I wish I’d known about them when my first born was teething. Total life saver for my 2nd baby

    • Oh how neat! I want to get a bracelet one too. I am also interested in trying the adult necklace for car sickness!

  • Babywearing has helped me a lot too. Love that cute bag too.

    • Thank you! Isn’t babywearing amazing?! It has been so nice being able to have little one close & creating that special bond from day one.

  • Yes to babywearing! I own an emeibaby and I love it!

    • It is one of our favorite things to do…the carrier as she calls it πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

  • Babywearing is great and the bag looks great πŸ™‚ The pictures are so cute by the way! X

  • I totally agree to invest in a nice multi use diaper bag. I’ve got two so far, one that you can carry on your shoulder or across your chest and the other is a book bag. It would have been smarter for me to get one that does all those things!

    • That’s all right, as both styles will come in handy! Durability is a big reason I chose Jujube for our bag 😍

  • I love that diaper bag…. way more functional than the one I had! I’ll keep it in mind for future baby showers!

  • I loved baby wearing too! I had a different brand of carrier but I loved it just the same! And that is a really cool diaper bag.

  • This is a great idea it is better to invest in nicer more expensive things. Than to get 4 cheap things that breaks you end up spending more in the cheaper items. I do not have kids. But when I do I will look into these items

    • Thank you so much for reading Kristal. It is so worth splurging on the things that will last and that you will use forever. This diaper may line does make accessories like wallets and makeup bags 😍 dangerous lol!

  • I love the different colors, they are so beautiful. I never could carry my babies in front like that they always squirmed

    • Thank you for reading Elizabeth. They can get quite squirmy can’t they? Especially once she could forward face, that was all she wanted to do!

  • I am so with you on the baby wearing! My little guy (15 months) wants to be outside CONSTANTLY, and the Ergo I use helps keep him safe and snuggled while we walk to the park or chase after his big sister. And I have still thrown my four year old in it on occasion, so they definitely maintain their usefulness for many, many years. Thanks for the great read!

    • That is amazing and so nice you can carry both littles in in! That is for sure a growing product. Thank you for reading πŸ“šπŸ˜Š

  • Great post! My little one is two and a half and I found there were some products we just stopped using in the past few months, including her soft structured carrier. I agree, a functional diaper bag is a must!

    • Same here…we have many toys that need go be retired, especially since 2 is right around the corner!

  • Yes to all 3! I love that my diaper bag is now being used for baby 2 & can be used as a reg tote. We love the Ergo carrier for walks

    • Isn’t so nice to have items that last?! We are wearing our necklace as we speak!

  • Diaper Bag looks cool. I must say you described each item so beautifully. I loved reading the post.

    • Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to read my blog post 😊

  • We love our Lille’s! I always wanted a JUJUbe bag but never ended up getting one. Yours is so cute!

    • Aren’t the LILLEbaby’s amazing? They are quite the life-saver & I can’t get enough of the snuggles. Thank you for the compliment on the bag! They make some super cute tote bags and accessories now πŸ™‚ they are too cute & super durable too.

    This is a great topic! I like that diaper bag a lot. We had a nice Petunia Picklebottom, as soon as my first daughter was old enough to carry a small backpack, she carried her own stuff! Ha! And with the second, most of the time I just grabbed a diaper and ran out the door lol.

    I also lament that my girls didn’t like babywearing more. I had a ring sling, but by the time my first was big enough to go in it, she was not interested in being wrapped up (she was a preemie and didn’t hit 8lb til 3 months).

    • Thank you Kellie for commenting and reading my post! I am also in LOVE with Petunia Pickle Bottom bags. They are well made & super cute. Every little one is different when it comes to their needs & that is what I LOVE about children πŸ™‚

  • My sister and I were just talking about getting her little guy a bag and he is only 17 months old πŸ™‚ I love PPB bags too, super durable and cute.
