Easter is coming right up, so it’s time to get cracking (egg pun intended) if you’re thinking about doing Baby’s First Easter Basket.
The only things your little lamb probably needs are a bulk box of wipes, a bunny ears headband from the dollar store and some plastic eggs filled with Puffs, but you can bet Grandma’s already hopping off to fill baby a basket. Before Grandpa starts sneaking Junior Cadbury Cream Eggs in the shadow of a Toyota-sized rabbit, why not send the family on an Easter gift hunt for items baby (and you) will really love?
Baby’s First Easter Basket Ideas:
Each egg makes a different sound. You can find them on the HABA site.
ezpz developed a whole line of high quality, food-grade silicone feeding products with help of a Pediatric Feeding Specialist. The Tiny Spoons have sensory bumps on the spoon bowl that activate sensory awareness to decrease gagging and choking. The Tiny Cup can be used from 4+ months and has a weighted base and tactile bumps that provide topple resistance. If you're shopping for an older child, check out the Mini Cup + Straw. (Beware, it often sells out so if you see the color you want, snap it up.) You can find them all on the ezpz site.
Some of these are specific to Easter and some just have bunnies and ducks, but ALL of them are good.
