Mama Gets Style, too with Vera Bradley Baby

Vera Bradley Bag

I'm a bag addict. There, I've admitted it. Is that my first step to recovery? Lord, I hope not because I enjoy being a bag addict! ;) Vera Bradley has quickly become my favorite designer of bags and when I heard they were coming out with a baby line never in a million years did I think it would include items for ME (and other mamas!). BUT, baby diaper bags are for mamas, too and leave it to Vera Bradley to design some perfect bags for … [Read more...]

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


I've tried cloth wipes. I really have. I just haven't been able to successfully get them into our routine. Being that we use cloth only part time, for our family disposable wipes have been the answer. We are aware that many brands have unsafe ingredients in their wipes, which is why I want to give you five reasons why we love Earth's Best wipes. Earth's Best is a brand we've been using for some time and we feel comfortable using them on our … [Read more...]

Chlorine Free Diapers from Earth’s Best

Earth's Best Chlorine Free Diapers

We received a surprise delivery the other day! Earth's Best sent us boxes of their training pants for LA, diapers for Addy and wipes for both kiddos! As an ambassador I typically receive products each month, however, I was surprised at the amount they sent (and VERY thankful!) this month. The little ones were rather excited, too! Take a look at the fun they had with the packages and the help from Addy when Daddy was putting them away! I … [Read more...]

Just What Baby Has Been Missing, Style from Vera Bradley!

Vera Bradley Dress and Bloomers

Do you sometimes look all around you and see tons and tons of baby clothes and think that there is just something more you wish you had for baby? I've done that a few times. We have a ton of clothes for Addy! I typically watch sales and buy seasons in advance and for some reason there seems to be so many more girls clothes than boys on clearance. Even so, I've often felt like there was something missing until I received this new dress from Very … [Read more...]

Springtime Steps and Outdoor Play with pediped

Springtime pediped shoes

pediped® has become a favorite brand for our little ones.

Safe and Cozy Nights with Halo SleepSack (Giveaway)

Halo Logo

Halo SleepSacks are a must-have item for babies, in my opinion. I've trusted them with both LA and Addy and don't think I would have had the peace of mind I had when they were sleeping without Halo. It is common knowledge that blankets in the bassinet or crib are not safe. Halo SleepSacks are the answer to keeping baby warm in the safest possible way...by wrapping him/her in a Halo SleepSack. Safe Sleeping with Halo The reassuring thing … [Read more...]

Keep Your Little Ones Safe from RSV #RSVProtection

RSV Awareness

RSV. I'm sure you've heard of it. Colds and viruses this time of year are so common but can be so scary, as well. My two little ones are in daycare part time and keeping them germ free is impossible. We had many problems with LA getting sick the past two years, but this year it seems to have gotten better. Poor Addy is the one that seems to get all of the viruses this year. I worry about her constantly. With my husband being a teacher and being … [Read more...]

If you've been a follower for a while, you know that although I've developed a love for most type of cloth diapers, I hold a special place in my heart for hook and loop all-in-one diapers.

InGenuity Logo

When baby Addy started eating, she really wanted to eat. In fact, she was so adamant about wanting "real people" food that I was worried because I thought it was way too soon. I wanted my BABY to eat BABY FOOD!  I have a feeling it was because she saw her big brother eating everything but baby food so she wanted to also. She was six months when I started trying baby foods and she ate them for a few months but she soon decided it was time to eat … [Read more...]

Real Nappies #ClothDiaper Review

Real Nappies is from New Zealand where they have become the leading reusable cloth diaper! In New Zealand the word nappies refers to what we here in the US refer to as diapers.

We were sent a nappy intro pack, which includes the crawler size of a … [Read more...]
