1. Munchkin or Gogo Wipe Warmers – Amazon Items For Kids
First on my list of Amazon Items for Kids, a Wipe Warmer! I feel like wipe warmers are always “give or take” items amongst women in mommy groups and internet forums. Some of us love them while others think they’re a waste of money. In our household, we love them! We have one alongside every changing table, as well as in the kitchen. My husband often jokes about getting two more for the bathrooms. That’s right, we take our butts very seriously around here! I feel like it’s the same principle you’d apply to washing dishes. You wouldn’t wash dishes with cold water, so why wipe butts with cold wipes? Okay, maybe it’s not exactly the same, but these warmers are great! In the event a poo slips under our nose radars and becomes adhered, the warmth makes it easier to clean off tiny tushes.
They’re also great in the kitchen to wipe mouths and hands after meals. Sometimes, we even use them on surfaces. During mid-night diaper changes, the warm wipes are much less of a shock. Our baby rarely ever fully awakens. Perhaps my kids have been spoiled with warm wipes for too long because they definitely notice and comment (whine rather) when we have to use cold wipes. In our house, we have two Munchkin brand wipe warmers and one Gogo brand. The Gogo brand has an LED light for nighttime diaper changes and two different heat settings. The Munchkin brand is pretty utilitarian but keeps the wipes really warm. All in all, they’re both great products.
2. First Years Bottle Warmer – Amazon Items For Kids
Next on my list of Amazon Items for Kids, The First Years Bottle Warmer! This bottle warmer has been great. As an exclusive pumper, it’s perfect for warming pumped bottles of milk from the fridge. It comes with a small beaker for measuring the desired amount of water and minutes for each bottle to steam. For bigger bottles, you can remove the inner ring to expand the space. I’ve yet to find a bottle that doesn’t fit. I’ve even used this warmer a time or two to thaw homemade, ice cube-sized frozen baby food. I’ll put the frozen cubes in a small glass cup or saucer, put it right on top of the warmer, and set it to steam for 5 minutes. How’s that for a cool mom hack? It works like a charm! For cleaning, I simply unplug it, fill the bottom with a little white vinegar and water, let it sit for a few minutes, and wipe it out with a paper towel. Voila! It’s that easy.
3. Superyard – Amazon Items For Kids
The Superyard fence/gate is awesome and has been a game-changer when it comes to herding our children! It comes with 8 panels and a carrying strap for easy transport. If you need more panels, you can buy extension sets in packs of two depending on the space. They also sell a door panel pack with a childproof lock if you don’t want to have to climb over it every time. It’s great for when the kids go over to the grandparents, or out in the yard during spring and summer. The individual panels bend to wrap around furniture or to simply create an enclosed dedicated space for play. We like to drape blankets over them to create the perfect fort. Our toddler loves it! These are easy to clean, extremely durable, and can transform as your child becomes more mobile. It comes in plain white or multi-colored depending on your preference. Get it here!
4. Leap Frog Letter Band Phonics Jam – Amazon Items For Kids
We purchased the Leap Frog Letter Band Phonics Jam from Amazon for our son Jameson’s 1st birthday. He was immediately drawn to it and couldn’t put it down. Oh, who am I kidding, he was obsessed! By the time he was 20 months, he could identify every letter and sing the entire alphabet. He would point out letters on random signs and buildings everywhere we went. People would always comment on how smart he was, which of course, made us look like great parents. We’ve purchased this toy for a couple of our friends who have young kids too, and they are constantly telling us how great it is. Our almost one-year-old has recently discovered it and is quickly becoming just as fond of it. We LOVE this toy and recommend it for any kid learning the alphabet. Check it out here!
5. Delta Children Chair Desk – Amazon Items For Kids
We got this chair desk for Jameson to have his own dedicated sitting space in our living room. This is in the classic style of old school desks with the arm and writing surface that extend across the body. It has a storage bin underneath and comes in a variety of styles for both girls and boys. We got Jameson the Mickey version and he loved it so much we got the Minnie version for our niece. Just as we suspected, she loved it too! Jameson uses it to eat all of his meals, and after, we just wipe it with a damp washcloth. My niece uses hers as an art table. The pictures on the chair are vivid, colorful and eye-catching. We love this product! Get it here!
6. Big Red Rooster Sleep Training Alarm Clock – Amazon Items For Kids
We got this “okay to wake” clock for our 2-year-old because he was waking up in the morning before it was reasonably acceptable. This particular clock is in the form of a dog, but there are a variety of styles to choose from. I chose this one because it was the best price and I thought it was the most kid-friendly. You can set the alarm for whatever time you want, and when that time comes, the ball changes from red to green. You can use the clock like a traditional alarm clock with a buzzer, but our goal was to keep him quiet and in his bed, not wake him up. It also has a nap timer. It did take a week or so using positive reinforcement for our son to understand what we were asking of him, but now that he gets it, he stays quiet and in his bed until the light turns green! Now, he won’t go to sleep unless we turn “Finnegan” on, who he’s cleverly named after our real dog. Check it out here!
7. Amazon Brand Mama Bear Diapers – Amazon Items For Kids
If you prefer to use traditional disposable diapers that are comparable to Huggies or Pampers brands, etc., then Amazon Brand Mama Bear Diapers are a great alternative, for a fraction of the price. If you use the “Subscribe and Save” option through Amazon, you can save even more. A 160 count pack of diapers from Amazon costs around 38$, while other leading brands charge an upwards of 10$ or more for the same amount or less! We have tried a few different brands of diapers in the past, and wish we had known about these sooner! They come straight to our door the next day with Amazon Prime Free One-Day Shipping. Try them today!
8. Nuk Sesame Street Hard Spout Cup – Amazon Items For Kids
Last but certainly not least on my list of Amazon Items for Kids is the Nuk Brand sippy cup. We have gone through a few different sippy cups in the past, all claiming to be “spill-proof”. I don’t know if our son is a sippy cup wizard or what, but he’s managed to find ways to spill or unscrew all of them. We finally came across the Nuk brand and thus far, have lived up to the claims. They have a cool little plug on the inside of the spout that blocks the flow of water unless sucked. Not only are these cups spill-proof but they’re easy to wash and are dishwasher safe. Another great thing about them is that the lids screw on really tight, making it virtually impossible for little hands to loosen them. Our son throws them, tips them, shakes them and sleeps with them, and we’ve had zero spills!
