Advice is everywhere (especially for moms right)? Is your baby sleeping properly, is the carseat installed correctly, is their outfit too flammable?... These are all valid concerns but I'm definitely not going to talk about them today. I'm here to chat about the fun stuff! The stuff that you won't necessarily get crap about on Instagram if you photograph them the wrong way;)
I've compiled a short list of my basics that I believe every mom should invest in. These are all products I actually own, have used, and LOVE!
1. Owlet Baby Monitor (Click HERE to buy it at my exclusive discount)!
This is a new monitor that will alert you if your child stops breathing! If you should buy only one thing for your baby I feel like this is the one. How can you say no to the possibility of saving your childs life?
Not only is it an amazing product, it's run by a team of really great people. I love supporting small businesses and I can't wait to see this one take off!
2. Fawn Design Diaper Bag ( Click HERE to shop more colors)!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Fawn Design bag. I guarantee I'll use it forever, or until I buy every single other color! Its the perfect bag with backpack straps or a normal cross body strap. I love using it as a backpack when we're at the Childrens museum, and using it the other way for running into the grocery store. It has the perfect amount of pockets and can easily wipe clean if your kid barfs on it (trust me on that one....)
After going through quite a few diaper bags I wish I would have just invested in this one from the start. It's definitely worth it!
Fun Fact: I was lucky enough to share a bunk bed with Jenny (the owner of FD) and chat until the wee hours of the night.. she's rad!
3. Covered Goods Cover (Shop More prints HERE)
No one likes their post baby back fat hanging out while trying to nurse in public (If you do, I'm so sorry if that offends you). These covers also double as carseat covers which I used every time we went anywhere! I also love supporting the original idea and if you see any others like it out there, just know that Jamie from Covered Goods created these!! (She's also the sweetest human being i've ever met).
4. Little Wife Power House Boppy Cover (or "Nippy" cover as my autocorrect always wants me to say)
You take so many photos of your baby on or around your boppy, that I made it my mission to find a cute one! Jen from Little Wife Power House has the CUTEST prints and best quality. Shop them HERE! I'm also lucky enough to know her on a real human level and she's the best! I also own her swaddles and crib sheets and I am here to report they rule!
5. Rad Revolution Goodies of Course!! (Shop the tabs above)!
Teething necklaces and joggers are my staple. You NEEEEED them. Okay fine you don't actually need them, but you will LOOOOOOVE them!
Nursing my youngest was a battle and I definitely looked like I had been in a cat fight when I was done because his favorite thing was scratching at my neck. Teething necklace to the rescue! It gave him something textured to hold and kept him better focused on the deed.
Joggers also make the perfect baby gift and everyone wears pants so make them cute!
