Happy Friday! I get a lot of questions regarding certain products I feature in my Intsagram photos so I am going to try to put together a monthly roundup of popular items with links.
This month I put together a list of the baby/kids gear we have been loving and getting the most use out of. Click on any of the photos below or the product description to shop the items.
This Stroller seat/board has been my most asked about item recently. I purchased this at random from Amazon because we hadn't yet decided on a double stroller and wanted to try other options. Lilly LOVES this! Se calls it her bike and will stay seated during the majority of most outings. It fits most strollers (we have a Britax be Agile), is easy to attach and the seat can be removed if you want to use it as a standing board only. (Lilly will alternate between sitting and standing even with the seat attached). Some reviews complain of it taking up too much space making it hard for the person pushing the stroller to walk. This can happen but I have found that it is easy enough to push the board to the side while walking and it will stay there, allowing me to walk comfortably. We now have a double stroller that we use on occasion but Lilly prefers this seat when she has the option. It is a great alternative to a double and it is under $120.
I was on the search for a paci holder and this guy won for a few reasons- I always go for organic options if I can. A few dollars more for a healthier product is never a question for me. This animal is also easily washable and has a pouch that houses a natural cornmeal bean bag that can be heated for soothing effects. I removed the bean bag and tuck away the 2nd clip (used to clip the holder to clothing etc) when its not in use. This holder comes with a pacifier but we don't use it so I can't attest to quality, etc.
I have only recently been introduced to natural rubber pacifiers through the many Mama friends I see using them on Instagram. I really liked the fact that they were natural and figured I would give it a try. At $9 a paci they are definitely on the pricier side but again, a healthier option was worth it for me. I also like the soft texture of the natural rubber. If Cole roles his face on it in the middle of the night its not hard or uncomfortable.
I underestimated the importance of teething jewelry until I had a teething baby. These cute pieces are a stylish solution for teething but also keeping babes busy while carrying and nursing too. There are even mini versions for your teething littles to wear. Cole and I use my necklace daily!
When we put Lilly into her big girl bed I knew safety bumpers/rails were a must but I didn't like the look of the standard rail type options. Through some searching I found HiccaPop bed bumpers. They have worked great! They fit under the fitted sheet and we haven't had any issues since Lilly started using them a few months ago. They are also PHTHALATE & BPA Free Polyurethane Foam with no flame retardants, waterproof and washable.
Lilly is going through a puree phase, meaning the only way I get fruits and veggies into her is via fruit and veggie packs or smoothies. This is my fault, I know, because those packs are just so convenient and we used them often and now its all she wants. Now that cole has started solids I have started making my own purees again (although not as much as I would like to) and using reusable packs helps keep it all cost effective. I tried these packs at random and they have been good; durable, easy to clean BPA free and large. I have also found that most caps from standard throw away packs fit these as well, so if you lose a cap there are usually plenty of replacements.
I love the adorable stuffed animals in the Jellycat line, Lilly and Cole each have at least one. I added these to the list because we recently got them "bashful bunnies" for Easter and they became fast favorites. These stuffed animals are great gifts!
These wipes are the only item on the list that are sponsored, meaning I received the wipes in return for trying them and providing an honest review. I am including them because we have been using the wipes for a couple of weeks and really like them! Cole and Lilly both have very sensitive skin and Cole was recently diagnosed with mild eczema so I am very careful what products I use on their skin. I don't know how to parent without wipes, so we have been through many brands. Natural, plant based are our favorites as they are usually the most gentle. These wipes are great because they are 99% natural, very effective and smell amazing! I don't use them exclusively as they are a little more expensive than standard wipes, but I love keeping a pack in my baby bag to wipe hands and faces on the go. The brand is also cruelty free and the wipe material is biodegradable.
I hope these links are helpful and if you see any items on my social feeds that you like or have questions about feel free to message me for info! Happy Weekend!
