Create a Safe Sleep Environment with the HALO Bassinest Swivel

Halo Bassinest

*Sponsored Content*All Opinions are 100% My Own and Not influenced in any way* Are you a mama curious about co-sleeping? Did you co-sleep with you last little one? I have to admit it would be so easy to fall asleep with baby in bed with me but I've been paranoid of her falling off the bed or of hubby rolling over not knowing she was there so we've refrained from doing so. I really wanted a co-sleeper with Annie but we already had a bassinet, and … [Read more...]

Philips AVENT Gives Mama Rest; Allows Dad to Take Over Night Time Feedings

Night Time Feedings with AVENT

Things have been pretty crazy busy since Annie was born. I can tell you it's been amazing, but I can also tell you adjusting to three little ones has been more than I thought it would be. I've always heard adjusting from 1-2 was harder than 2-3 but for me...this transition has been the roughest. Don't get me wrong, I understand that I am truly blessed and wouldn't change my life for the world, but it's just been hard! With the help of one of my … [Read more...]

The Perfect Bag for Baby is OiOi from Pish Posh Baby

Pish Posh Logo

There are a few reasons it's always difficult for me to find the perfect bag for baby. First, I have two toddlers and any day now we'll be adding a newborn into the mix. Second, we use cloth diapers much of the time so our needed items for on the go often take up more space since cloth diapers are bigger and I also need to take a wet bag for the cloth diapers. I was thrilled when Pish Posh Baby decided to take part in the Winter Wonderland of … [Read more...]

Joovy’s Caboose Too – A Dream for Parents of Twins or Two Close In Age!

Caboose Too

When LA was born in 2010 my husband and I knew we wanted more kids and soon. We are both getting "older" when it comes to having kids so we wanted to have our little ones close together. Plus, our oldest one was like an only child and he always wanted siblings growing up so we wanted to make sure LA had siblings close to his age. LA and Addy are 19 months apart and Addy will be 24 months older than baby when she arrives. We definitely need a … [Read more...]

Taggies Sweet as a Bug Bedding and Soft ‘n Snug Bouncer Brighten the Nursery

Taggies Logo

When we were expecting LA it was like we were first time parents again. Our oldest, at that time, was 13 and we had long gotten rid of all his baby things. We had a complete nursery to decorate and since we planned on having more after LA we decorated the nursery as gender neutral as possible. Since the moment we found out Addy was a girl I have been telling my husband that I wanted to make the nursery a bit more "girly" for her. I wanted to add … [Read more...]

I Just Tried Rite Aid’s Tugaboos Diapers, Have You Tried Them?

Rite Aid diapers

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid. I've mentioned before that our family only uses cloth diapers part time. Because of our work schedules and daycare, it just works out better for us to not use cloth on days that I work outside of the home. There's typically one brand of disposable diapers that we use but I was recently challenged to make a change and try Rite Aid's Tugaboos diapers. I had never tried Rite Aid's … [Read more...]

Five Reasons You’ll Want to Try Earth’s Best Baby Wipes

EarthsBestWipes

I've tried cloth wipes. I really have. I just haven't been able to successfully get them into our routine.

Earth's Best is a brand we've been using for some time and we feel comfortable using them on our … [Read more...]
