At 6-12 months, you’ve grown past all of the registry must-haves for newborns, so what do you need to have on hand now? Here are a few of my favorite baby products I used the most with my own 3 kids!
Our five most used feeding items from 6-12 months were:
- Sippy cups – There are so many options and you will probably have to try a few to figure out which works best. Here are all of our favorites. This is the sippy cup that worked the best consistently with my 3 kids.
- Highchair – I wanted a highchair that was as easy on the eyes as it was functional.
- We found that this clip-on highchair worked best with our kitchen’s configuration. It does not take up any floor space, is easy to wash and allows our youngest to eat at the counter with her two older brothers.
- We also keep this one on hand for when we are eating outside.
- Our youngest uses this one at our nanny share and if a clip-on highchair didn’t work in our space, this is what I would pick as our primary highchair.
- Bibs – Yes, I know they will end up with stuff all over them, but bibs should still be cute! We found that the silicone bibs irritated their necks and these are a cinch to wash. Plus, they have long-sleeved options for more protection!
- Spoons –
Sit to Stand Walker
There’s a lot going on with this toy, but it’s something that will entertain and grow with your baby! My kids loved the music and different buttons to push once they were able to sit up and face the toy. As they grew, they learned to pull themselves up on it and use it as support to stand. The wheels lock so it doesn’t roll away until they’re ready. And then once they’re ready to start taking some steps, you can adjust the speed of the wheels to slow them down or speed them up. We got this sit to stand walker 6 years ago with our first baby and our third baby is still using it today!
Who doesn’t love bubbles?! So simple, but so entertaining. Plus they help with baby’s fine motor skills when they try to grab and touch the bubbles. Bubbles are also a fun way for an older sibling to play with baby! We love these bubble guns and bubble machine.
We were gifted a subscription to Lovevery’s Play Kits and I have been blown away with the quality of the toys and, most importantly, that my youngest actually plays with them! The toys in each Play Kit have been spot on for her age and stage. I also love that the toys are built to last and made with sustainably harvested wood, organic cotton, nontoxic paint, and baby-safe plastics.
We’ve gone through a lot of sound machines and this is hands down, without a doubt, the best sound machine on the market. The sound is perfect, it gets loud and it’s built to last. We have replaced all of the sound machines in our house with this one.

Having a dual-firmness crib mattress was important to us! This simply means that the crib mattress has the extra-firm support that infants need on one-side and less firmness on the other side to provide the comfort that toddlers prefer. Other features we looked for were a waterproof cover and eco-friendliness. This mattress is made by one of the leading industry crib mattress manufacturers and checks all of our boxes (and then some)!
