When I first became a mom, I didn’t know which products or equipment to buy. The tons of advice and many options completely overwhelmed me.
But then our friends came for dinner one evening with their 10 month old baby. And in a few seconds they set up their portable high chair.
“WHERE did you get that?” I asked.
“IKEA,” my friend said. “They have so many great baby products.”
A quick trip to IKEA later, and I could confirm that, yes. IKEA has a lot of stuff for babies and best if all: it’s simple, affordable and the kids love it.
In this post, I’ve listed some of my favorite IKEA baby products. You’d be amazed at what you can find!
