  • When mine were babies, I bought them clothes and baby toys for Christmas. They were 4 months and 6 months on their first Christmas.

  • I'm not sure what to get my baby either. He will be 5 months also. I am thinking one outfit and one toy... I'm sure everyone else will spoil him with toys and stuff.

  • get toys that say 6 months and 9 months that way he can play with them after he grows out of the other toys.

  • also you child is at the age that you can take him with you to go shopping. take him to walmart and show him all the toys and what they do see whathe likes and let him pick out his own stuff he will never know that he will not get it when he gets home they forget so easy at that age.

  • My little guy was 3 months old last Christmas and his "big" present was naming a star after him. He enjoyed the stuffed animal that came with the star certificate, but the actual star, I'll tell him about later. His other presents were new bottles, new pacifiers, socks, teething rings. I got him all useful stuff and I was surprised at how much interest he showed in the lights and paper. This year will be similar with sippy cups and little forks, but maybe a couple toys since he will have more interest. I just don't see the point in going crazy for something they don't remember.
