My kids are now 9, 7 and 4, so technically yes I am offically out of the baby and toddler stage...but don't you think that I haven't forgotten it!

Sleepless nights {heck, sometimes that still happens}, tantrums {again, sometimes still happens} and making sure they say please, thank you while keeping foreign items out of their ears and nose...it's hard to forget these stages.  It's also a stage of life where everywhere you step you're often stepping on a toy.

During the holidays I always try to give relatives ideas for my kid's gifts - ones that don't get stuck underfoot, are often educational and many times can fold up and be put away.  Junk toys aren't fun!

Here are my Top 10 hand-picked holiday gifts for babies and toddlers.  I hope you can find a few for your kids, your nieces and nephews or even your grandkids!

White noise is a MUST when you have a baby.  Heck, we still have a box fan in our hallway between all the bedrooms just to make sure all little noises {doors shutting, loud footsteps, etc.} are muffled.  Babies can sleep through quite a bit, but having some extra noise options to help soothe your baby to sleep is always a good idea.

This SoundBub, White Noise Machine and Bluetooth Speaker is portable and rechargeable with 12 different white noise sounds.
