Fave Picks for Pregnancy, Baby & Toddler
Expectant moms will love Baby Bump, it’s a birth (or yoga) ball with built in peg legs for stability. You’ll use it for exercise, comfortable sitting during late pregnancy, and maybe even during labor. Then, Baby Bump will keep up being a perfect tool for bouncing and soothing your newborn baby. Then use it to help you get back into shape and lose those post-baby pounds. Baby Bump is available in 8 great colors to choose from including darling pastels and chic neutral to match your baby’s nursery or your home’s decor.
When I first became a mom, I instantly became excited to start buying toys for my little baby. There’s nothing quite like finding the perfect toy to help your baby learn, grow, and develop. Perfect for the small dog lover in your life, BRIO‘s Large Dachshund is the perfect toy to help your toddler develop early walking and coordination skills. As your little one pulls the Large Dachshund along, they will enjoy seeing its ears, head, and tail sway. Not only that, but it’s constructed of durable wood – perfect for rough toddler play. BRIO also offers a wide variety of other fun toys such as their Light and Sound Fire Truck and My First Take Along Set. Playtime has never been more fun thanks to BRIO.
Spring and summer bring lots of travel to our household. Taking your kids along for the ride can be so much fun, but proper planning and gear are key! Our road trips this year will be easy as pie with a little help from BubbleBum. Hours in the car means lots of rest and relaxation. The Sneck is the perfect travel pillow for your little. It attaches to the headrest above their seat and allows them to snooze comfortably and even has a pocket for their Mp3 player or mobile device. We are also reducing arguing and whining by making all of their travel gear easily accessible with the Junkie. With trays for snacking, a tech mount, cup holders, and even an insulated bag to hold their snacks. Let BubbleBum make your travel plans a breeze this year too!
When it comes to my kids, I am always on the lookout for high quality, comfortable and versatile clothing items. These are the clothes they will be brought home in, the ones they will take their first steps in, the ones they will see the world in. Finn + Emma is one of my favorite brands to stock my baby’s closets. They have the best prints and fabrics with none of the toxic chemicals. There is something extra snuggly about a kiddo freshly bathed and ready for bed in their pjs, and Finn + Emma’s pjs are simply the best. My little girl loves to pick a pair from her drawer each night. I love supporting a company whose products are produced in fair trade settings that focus on social and economic independence for local people, women especially, working to provide for their families in a safe and fair environment.
Every parent needs a reliable thermometer on hand for the unexpected sick days that will inevitably arise. Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner can take an accurate temperature reading in just two seconds by capturing the heat naturally emitted from your little one’s skin. Just glide the TemporalScanner over the temporal artery on their forehead and rest assured that you’ll have quick, easy, accurate temperature reading that will help you make the best decisions for your child. The Soft Glow features a soft backlit display so you can easily read their temperature, even at night. Turn it into silent mode to let them continue sleeping without being disturbed.
My girls are obsessed with cute shoes, just like their mama. Mini Melissa continues to be one of my favorite choices for their tiny feet. With an amazing selection of both dressy and everyday shoes and sandals, making a final selection might be the hardest part of shopping! I love that I can get shoes for both of my girls, as they are currently loving having matching outfits. This Easter they both wore these Mini Melissa Jean + Jason Wu collaboration, we got so many compliments on them. They love how cute they are and I love how easily they can be put on, taken off, and cleaned. Even better is that the entire collection is 100% eco-friendly and recyclable.Widely known and loved for their unique jelly style and collaborations with top fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu, Mini Melissa is one of my favorite brands to snag for my girls.
Girls and hair accessories go hand in hand. When I found out I was pregnant with a little girl I immediately started stocking up on bows and headbands. That little girl is four now and she is always on the lookout for a new and exciting accessories. Buntoppers caught her eye immediately, I just knew she would love them. Inspired by real girls, each Buntopper is the perfect addition to your daughter’s hair. These cute embellished hairpins are darling and so well made. My daughter’s current favorite is a toss up between Violet and Alex, but she can’t wait to collect all eight! Which girl is your favorite?
I’ve been hunting all over for some natural baby products that don’t cost a fortune. Then I found Just Hatched! They have an entire line of baby care items that are natural-based, mild and gentle, with their “no yucky stuff inside” policy, that are actually affordable! My favorite product is their Happy Baby Body Wash (it smells amazing!), but I’ve loved everything I’ve tried. Just Hatched has a baby line and ALSO has a mama-care line which I just discovered, including a nursing balm and Stretch Marks & Scar gel. I wish I had known about this line when I was still nursing. Their products are even gentle enough to use on a newborn. I am loving that I finally found Just Hatched for my babies.
I love shopping as much as the next lady, but sometimes you just need someone else to do it for you! I have loved shopping services for myself for sometime now, but having Wee Blessing take care of my kids clothing is a no brainer! You fill out a style profile for your child (birth to age 14), then a package comes with 4 outfits based on the questions you answered. You decide on what you love and send the rest back. Hopefully, your stylist will provide you with 4 outfits that you just cannot live without and if that is the case, well you get to enjoy 10% off your entire order! You can even make special requests, like a dressy outfit for the holidays or more pants than tops. I was so pleased with what came in our Wee Blessing, great brands and all a hit with my little girl and the prices are wallet friendly! Send a blessing to a kid you love today!
