Need some ideas for that tiny stocking on your mantle this year? And need them quick?! Stuffing a baby’s stocking can be fun and practical–especially since the only thing they’re interested in is tearing all that tissue paper! Here are a few suggestions that can be ordered quickly and won’t be a waste of money from Green River Storage!
BabyBum Diaper Cream Brush
Hear us out–this is the newest baby item that you never knew you needed! Yes, for decades mothers have sacrificially used their fingers to spread diaper cream on their baby’s red bums, but after you use this silicone applicator, you’ll never go back! It’s small, suctions to the changing table or drawer, is easy to wipe after use, and keeps your fingers clean while applying diaper cream! Give it a try!
Tweezerman Baby Nail Scissors
If you’ve ever had a baby, you know two things–they have incredibly sharp nails, and those nails are very hard to clip. All it takes is one bout with accidentally-clipped skin for you to search for another way to take care of those nails. The Tweezerman baby nail scissors are the best for baby and kid nails–and don’t make the mistake of going for a cheaper, maybe well-reviewed brand of nail scissors. The ones mentioned are the definite best on the market (learn from my mistakes), and can be used all the way into childhood.
oogiebear Ear and Nose Cleaner
If you’re not a parent yet, we probably lost you at the first item on this list, but for those who are in the trenches, this is another bodily-function-related baby item that you’ll learn you can’t live without. Sticking things into ears can be dangerous, especially tiny baby ears, so the oogiebear helps you safely and gently grab pesky ear wax and boogers.
Bearington Baby Silky Soft Small Security Blanket
Babies love snuggling soft blankets, and Bearington makes some of the softest on the market. It’s not always practical to drag a little one’s favorite blanket around outside of the house, but with a security blanket, you can easily carry this in a bag or purse for whenever your little one needs a little piece of home.
Goodnight, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann
A favorite of many children (including my four girls!), this book is sweetly illustrated with simple words and a fun plot that babies grow to love from an early age. The colorful animals and the repetitive objects that can be found on each set of pages (a balloon, a banana, and a helpful little mouse) make this a family classic.
Baby Banana Bendable Training Toothbrush
It’s never too early to introduce good hygiene, and this silicone toothbrush functions as a fun, easy-to-hold teether for your chewing babies. It’s easy to sanitize, isn’t a choking hazard, and can easily be attached to the stroller or car seat.

And if the extra stuff cluttering up your house and your guest room is causing stress, we have your back.
