Sun/Mooon jars are a great alternative to the boring nightlight and they will work even when the power goes out. They are solar powered! You place them in sunlight for a few hours and they charge up. There is no power switch on these cool jars - they automatically switch on when the light sensor notices that it is dark or that you have turned out the lights. They are even sealed so tight that they can be left outside in any weather. How cute would these be to decorate your patio at night? Now I want one....maybe my son will share with me. He isn't going to part with it anytime soon though. He thinks it is his magic light. I'm not sure what it is about kids and flashlights but this tops the chart in things that shine in the dark!
My almost 4 month old is just now learning that his hands can be used for more things than just sucking on his fingers. He is beginning to hold and grasp items. When I was looking for Christmas Ideas for him that he would actually use because he is so young - the options were small. I love the Winkel Teether and Grasp Toy. This cool toy is super light and all of the brightly colored loops make it easy for baby to hold. It even makes a rattling sound when your child shakes it! You can also place this in the freezer for a few minutes and give it baby to soothe their gums. I like a toy that has more than one use. I can also vouch for it because my little guy loves it. It is one of the few toys he has no trouble manipulating and getting into his mouth (because that is baby's goal with anything....how can I fit this in my mouth?).
