So I know that Kennedy will not remember her first Easter but I still wanted to put together a cute little Easter basket for her filled with cute but useful things. A lot of you emailed or DM’d me asking what I put in her basket from my Instagram post so I figured I would just share here….
I decided to get a Easter basket that we could continue to use again and again after Easter so I used these adorable baskets from Plum + Sparrow. I use the larger one for trips to the farmers market or keep it in the living room for a place to stash her downstairs toys. I got Kennedy a smaller one that she can carry around as she gets older, after Easter I will probably use it to store all of her bows. They also have beautiful moses baskets that I am completely in love with.
So heres what I added to her basket…
Sriracha Sippy Cup – Kennedy is still a little too young for this cup but I thought it was adorable and couldn’t pass it up. For of a novelty item but cute nonetheless.
Amber Teething Necklace – People swear by these necklaces so I bought Kennedy a darker colored one a few weeks ago and honestly didn’t notice a chance in her as far as it helping. But then a friend said it’s actually the lighter colored ones that are the best so I decided to give them another try. I got this one and this one (comes with and anklet) and I have noticed her drooling has decreased a lot which has been nice. She’s majorly teething right now though so we have been trying a bunch of things to help with that so I cant say if the necklace has solely been helping but they are cute!
Teething Toys – My mom got Kennedy a broccoli teething toy and its been her absolute favorite! I looked into it and found out its from a company called Little Toader and they make so many more food related teethers. I wanted to get her some more as back ups so I got the carrots, bacon, and s’mores. All of their products are BPA free, lead free, PVC free, and phthalate free which is a great. Another favorite teether is this adorable llama one, its a rattle too so it keeps Kennedy occupied for a bit. And Sophie the Giraffe is a good go to…I ended up buying two just in case she loses one. Shes going through a phase of throwing all of her toys overboard on her stroller rides.
Bunny Booties – I am so in love with these. Seriously the cutest and she can continue to wear them after Easter. They are hand crocheted by women in the USA using ethically sourced yarn.
Another thing you could add to your basket is popsicle molds if your babe is teething. I recently made breast milk popsicles and Kennedy LOVED them. We tried a few different popsicle molds and I found that these ones from Nuby worked the best. I got these mesh ones too for frozen fruit but we are waiting a bit longer until we give Kennedy solids so I haven’t had a chance to try them yet.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!
