Our baby girl is officially 6 months old, and my mama heart can’t handle it! Wasn’t she just born like a couple weeks ago?! I think time goes 2 times faster when a baby is born. Do ya’ll ever feel like that? Between working full time and having a preschooler, too, I kinda feel like I’m missing out on her baby-ness a little bit and it makes me want to try to be more present and soak in every moment of her still being a baby! But, without further ado, I would love to share with ya’ll things that 3-6 month old babies love!

Must Have Baby Products for your 3-6 Month Old
- The Ergo Baby Omni 360 Baby Carrier is definitely a must-have! Babies grow and change so much from months 3 to 6 and this carrier is the best for transitioning with your growing babe! Throughout my 4 years of being a mama, we have tried pretty much every type of baby carrier there is and the Ergo Baby Omni 360 is my favorite by far! I love it’s versatility and that I can use it for my baby from 7 lb. newborn to 45 lb. toddler. It really is the only carrier you need! Another feature that I love is that it is super easy to adjust and to switch from baby facing inward to baby facing outward. I love no-fuss carriers. I need to be able to put on a carrier quickly and be comfortable wearing my baby. This carrier is perfect!
- Abby and Finn Diaper Subscription – During the first few months of life, babies can transition through one or two diaper sizes, that’s why we LOVE Abby and Finn diapers! Abby and Finn is a diaper subscription service that has premium, chemical free diapers that you can actually afford! It’s perfect for growing babies, too, since you can adjust your subscription as your baby grows and even include 2 different sizes in your monthly box. Best of all, the company donates diapers to people in need for every purchase you make! If you want to try Abby & Finn for your baby, you can use code DARLING10 for 10% off your first box!
- Nuby and Bella Tunno Teethers! – I think Lucia has pretty much every teether Nuby makes and she loves all of them and prefers them over any other teether except for her Bella Tunno! Bella Tunno makes the cutest teethers that are easy for babies to hold on to. Between 3-6 months, babies usually start wanting to put everything in their mouths, so teethers are a must! You can’t go wrong with either of these brands!
- Manhattan Toy Play and Pat Activity Mat – This activity mat was one of the best purchases I’ve made for Lucia by far! She loves loves loves this thing! It is so versatile, which I love! One side is black and white, which is perfect for newborns and when babies are developing their eyesight and the other side has colors. It has taggies, squeakers, and crinkly noises to keep your baby interested. You can tie it up in the car for the baby to look at, you can make it into a triangle to stand up on a play mat during tummy time, or let your baby hold onto it and explore all the activities in their carseat or the Rock n Play.
Whether you have a baby of your own or are shopping for a baby shower, I hope this list of things my children (and many of my friends kids) have loved is helpful for you! All babies are different, but this list of things 3-6 month old babies love is tried and true and I’m positive any baby will love them just as much as mine have!
