Baby Easter basket stuffers
Easter Books for Babies
Books make great Easter basket stuffers for babies!
It’s never too early to start reading to your baby. They will enjoy looking at the colorful pictures and snuggling with you even if they don’t 100% know what you’re saying– yet.
According to this Fisher-Price article, studies show that consistently reading to children helps them “develop improved language skills” and an “increased interest in reading.”
I can say from experience that school now for our little ones is so much different than it was when WE were in school. The more familiar your child is with books and all things reading, the better.
Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt
Gotta love Peppa! Join Peppa Pig and her friends for an Easter egg hunt in Peppa’s Easter Egg Hunt. *snort*
The Itsy Bitsy Bunny
The Itsy Bitsy Bunny board book puts fun spin on the classic “Itsy Bitsy Spider” Nursery Rhyme. I can’t promise that you won’t be singing this one in your sleep, but it’s so cute and perfect for Easter!
Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny!
Duck & Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny is a New York Times bestseller. In the book, Duck and Goose must figure out how to find the Easter Bunny.
Happy Easter, Mouse!
Llama Llama Easter Egg
Llama Llama Easter egg is perfect for baby’s first rhyming book. Not only does it have lots of colorful pictures, but who doesn’t love llamas?!
Baby Touch and Feel: Bunny
Your baby will love this book. According to the reviews, one parent pointed out how she loves that there is something to touch on each page rather than just a few.
Perfect for introducing new textures, which you can start introducing at 3-6 months.
Teethers & Rattles
Teething toys and rattles make perfect Easter basket stuffers for babies. Since you’ll most likely be buying these anyways, why not make it count?
Textured Carrot Teether
This little teether is made of BPA-free silicone and features easy-to-hold handles and two textured sides. Perfect for soothing sore gums and Easter baskets!
Chomp Champ Bunny Teether
This bunny teether is small enough for tiny hands and also has crinkly ears to provide more sensory stimulation, making is the perfect Easter basket stuffer.
It’s also easy to clean and contains no BPA, PVC, or phthalates.
Star Teething Blanket
This teething blanket may look small, but it’s actually about a foot wide. If your baby loves trying to chew on his burp cloths or bibs like mine did, he will love this! It has different textures and is lightweight and easy to grip.
Comotomo Silicone Baby Teether
If your baby has started the finger-chewing, he will love this teether. It’s easy to clean and BPA, PVC, and pathalate-free. I love that it has several different points of grabbing/holding. (Also comes in blue!)
Nuby Silicone Teethe-eez Teether with Bristles
The Nuby Teethe-eez Teether has multiple surfaces and will help soothe and clean tender gums. It may have a somewhat simple design, but babies love it. (This one also comes in blue!)
Bitty Bite Bug Rattle
Not only does the Bitty Bite Bug rattle (well, jingle), it makes baby’s favorite crinkle noise too. The best part, according to the reviews, is that it’s not overly annoying and loud.
NogginStik Light-Up Rattle
The NogginStik Light-Up Rattle isn’t your typical baby rattle.
This multi-activity toy changes colors (from red to blue to green) at the flick of the rattle and also has a mirror on the bottom so that baby can see her reflection.
My First Easter Outfits
And of course, you can’t forget the cute Easter onesies and other Easter attire! For the pics you’ll show their future dates ya know. 😉
Although Amazon has lots of these to choose from, here are our personal favorites:
My First Easter Outfits for Girls
My First Easter Outfits for Boys
Bunny Rabbit Beanie
Looking for an idea that’s a little more minimalist than a complete outfit?
Try a bunny ears beanie! How stinking adorable and you can choose between pink or blue.
