I would like to put together an Easter basket for my son. Does anyone have any ideas on what to put in a basket - for a 9 month old?

Last year I really wanted to start an easter tradition and I thought hard about what might be good. I decided in addition to the standard easter fare (plastic eggs, chocolate) we would do a spring theme book and a musical toy. Ive had a lot of fun this year looking for a good 2 year old toy (went with harmonica), and last year it was a big wooden slide whistle.

As you can see by some of the posts if this is your first kid its nice to establish some sort of tradition. We chose one based around our religion and our interests!

Anything Easter like - Baby Rattles, balls, toys (or things) that YOUR 9 month old will enjoy and not be eaten or taken by someone else in the family :) Maybe buy a "special dessert" that you normally don't feed your baby. Maybe if they sell baby chocolate pudding in the states, that would be fun. At 9 months they don't really understand the holidays too much, it is more for the parents to enjoy it with the family.

Here what I'm putting in my 9 month old Lucy's basket... a new sippy cup, some new bath toys, her favorite snacks (Gerber puffs) and a touch & feel book. She will probably dump everything out and play with the basket anyway! Good Luck & Happy Easter!

Gerber puffs are great for infants! We also got Paigie some textured books from Target, an outfit, and a Baby Einsteins video! I have in the past at Target gotten some Holiday binkies which I have put into the baskets of our other daughters (Paige doesnt use them).

just a thought... Why not fill an easter basket with infant treats from gerber foods. wagon wheels yogurt bites and the like.

Last year when mine was 11 months I put in a stuffed bunny rabbit, a few small toys that were already hers, a few plastic eggs to play with, a book and a sippy cup. It was fun to see her little eyes.

Check out HotPakHuggies.com. I purchased my son a small gray bunny from there. I'm also putting in two books: Pat the Bunny and a baby animal touch and feel book, a 3 pack of Munchkin Shakey Eggs and a Sand-toy bucket w/ the shovels, etc. for playing this summer. That's all so far. Someone suggested putting Gerber puffs in the plastic easter eggs as well so I may do that.

At Walmart they have super cute rubber duckies that are easter themed, I am also putting a couple toys, an Easter book, some puffs, and maybe a Peep.

I have 5 kids and Easter is always one of our favorite holidays! This year for our 9mo olds 1st Easter we will put a stuffed toy, Some sort of baby toys, maybe an outfit, and of course PEEPS!!!
I have the cutest pics of all of our kids eating their first Peeps!

I am going to put a toy, a couple of plastic eggs with things inside because my daughter loves toys that rattle, Gerber snacks, and a bunny board book. I wouldn't do too much just because our little ones are so young...but it is their first Easter basket :) I am going to try to decorate her basket myself because I enjoy doing things like that. I would just put a couple things in it that your son enjoys (toys, food, etc.)

Easter books (with textures), bunny straw cups, beach ball, bath toys, bunny bib....I have seen a lot of good stuff like this at Target. Bubble maker and big sidewalk chalk might work too.

my mother in law and sister in law are making up baskets for my daughter and neice (theyre 9 days apart) and they bought each of them an outfit, a swimsuit, some toys, and some baby cookies. i dont know if theyre going to put any chocolate in them, but if they do i'll probably end up being the one to eat it lol

this one is our 4th, so there will be all practical things, gerber puffs, some baby food, and of course one chocolate bunny, we have the best pics of each one eating the bunny, I think the first chocolate for each of them, (they were all around 9 mths) sooooo cute and pretty funny messy too, but a tradition now!

This year, i will only be giving my daughter 1 or 2 eggs, which will most likely be eaten mostly by someone else. I am only giving them to her because I want her to "have her first egg". I will also be putting in some decoupage easter eggs and some painted ones just for effect. She will get a "my first easter" bunny, some clothes and a new pair of shoes. I didn't really go overboard as I don't want her to have chocolate, and it's really just for tradition, she doesn't really understand yet.

But over the 2 weeks leading up to easter, I have some activities like finger painting easter baskets, painting eggs, "writing" letters to easter bunny for us to do :)
