Tubby Todd Winter Bundle

This stuff is the best. You know I’m a huge fan of the All Over Ointment – it’s not too greasy and it heals all that ails wee ones. (You can see my review here.)

Unique Gift for a Baby: Handmade Tooth Keeper Box

This nifty box also has a spot for the umbilical cord stump and a lock of hair from baby’s first haircut (hey, if we’re keeping stuff may as well go all in). You can also use the lines next to each tooth to record either the day the first appeared or the day they fell out.  You can find it on Amazon.
