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.

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!)

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.
Rainbow Glow Rattle
Does your baby take an interest in lights? The Rainbow Glow Rattle changes colors (from blue to red to green) at the flick of the rattle. Parents also pointed out that it’s the perfect budget-friendly alternative to the Noggin Stik.
