Baby Summer Essentials

Baby Summer Essentials

Happy Friday!  I hope that everyone is having an amazing day.  Naila and I have been trying to enjoy the summer as much as possible.  We go on many adventures and I have made a list of the items that are a must for her while out and about.  I love sharing this type of information with you guys.  Hope you Enjoy! 🙂

Discount code and info for Flower headband will be at the end

1st 2 items are the Babyganics Sunscreen spray and Insect Repellent spray, these 2 have been life savers.  Here in Texas bugs and mosquitos are always making an appearance and the sun burns your skin if you stay out for too long.  The sunscreen has an SPF of 50 and both are all natural products.

2nd item is the Ju-Ju-Be Tokidoki Fuel Cell  which is lined with 3M Thinsulate to keep hot stuff hot, cool stuff cool and it has a quick grab handle with swivel clip to hook onto your diaper bag or stroller.  Keeps Naila’s water or milk cool for hours.

3rd item is the Contigo straw kids cup, I love this cup because the straw stays in place and best of all it’s spill proof.  Naila loves throwing anything that she gets a hold of and she enjoys drinking out of straws now.  You can put any type of drink in it, water, juice…

4th item is Swim diapers, for water parks and swimming pools. 🙂

5th item is Baby sunglasses, Naila doesn’t like to keep sunglasses on her face so these would be a good choice to go with since it has the head strap.

6th item is a Sun hat, you don’t want your baby to be exposed to the sun without any facial protection.

This concludes our Baby Summer Essentials!

Headband that Naila is wearing in the picture is from ItsyBitsyRoses on Etsy and you can use code NAILA15 for a friends and family discount. 🙂

What’s in my diaper bag?

What’s in my diaper bag?

Happy Monday amazing people, welcome to my blog!

Today I will be sharing what I have in Naila’s diaper bag.  🙂  I am excited to share this with you because I love seeing what other moms have in their diaper bags.

The diaper bag is from Fawn Design, you can find a similar one here.  The storage wristlets that you see in the pictures are from here and here.

The most important items for Naila are snacks and food. 🙂  My baby loves food.

1. Food pouches  are a must, she loves the veggie and fruit ones.  For her not to make a mess with these we use the ChooMee SoftSip food pouch tops .

2. Plum Fruit Snacks are her new favorite snack.

3. Teething crackers help with her teething.  Her 2 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth are all coming in at the same time, my baby is a true baby trooper.

4. Disposable bibs and table toppers  are my favorite that way I don’t have to worry about carrying a dirty bib in my diaper bag after she eats or worry about her eating off of a public table.

5. OXO Tot zippy cup for water and her NUK bottle for her milk.  She is a milk lover!

6. Baby spoons are always needed.

Can’t leave the house without our diapering essentials.

1. Our diaper of choice is the Pampers Swaddlers .  Follow the link to purchase a 1 month supply for a great price. 🙂  Since it is summer time  I carry at least 1 Pampers Splashers swim diaper in case she goes in the water.

2. Wipes are extremely useful, you can use them to clean up any mess.

3. Boudreaux’s Butt Paste has been our favorite since day one for any kind of rash.

4. The changing pad is from Tote Savvy.

5. If I ever change Naila and there is nowhere to dispose of the dirty diaper I always have the Munchkin Arm & Hammer Diaper Bag Dispenser with bags handy.

6. An item that is always important is an extra change of clothes for your little one in case of an accident.  In this Texas heat we have been loving rompers, this specific one is from Carter’s.

Health and Sanitation is very important to us.

1. Babies are always either getting vaccinations or they are teething.  I always carry Infant Tylenol for that reason.

2. If your baby ever has a runny nose Boogie Wipes NoseFrida the Snotsucker and saline spray are all life savers.

3. If you are always worried about germs like me you definitely need the Babyganics hand sanitizing wipes that can be used to sanitize anything not just hands and the MAM pacifier wipes to keep Naila’s pacifier clean.

Now the items that I carry for myself! 🙂

1. Car keys, gym pass and house keys.

2. My wallet from Ju Ju Be from the Tokipops collection that you can purchase here.

3. This one is tmi but I didn’t want to leave anything out because then it wouldn’t be an authentic what’s in my diaper bag, I use the U by Kotex ultra thin pads.

4. My favorite liquid lipstick and lip liner are from  Kylie Cosmetics in the shade Posie K.

5. Goody Ouchless hair ties are a must for me.

This concludes what’s in my diaper bag.

Love to Dream Swaddle Up

Love to Dream Swaddle Up

Happy Tuesday amazing readers!!

Today I will be talking about another of my baby must have items, the amazing Love to Dream swaddles.  This swaddle allowed my baby to self-soothe anytime that she was taking a nap or sleeping at night.  Medical research suggests that babies sleep better, and for longer, if they are able to self-soothe.

Below are pictures of my daughter wearing them when she was about a month old.  She loved the Love to Dream Swaddles.

Other swaddles keep your baby’s hands away from their faces, which can be very uncomfortable for a baby especially because in the womb their hands are naturally placed by their face while they sleep or when they are hungry.

The Love to Dream Swaddles don’t keep your baby from being able to move his/her hands up to their face and the best part is that their hands are fully covered, which means that they won’t end up with scratches all over their cute little faces.  It also features a two-way zipper for those rough late night diaper changes.

You can purchase the swaddle here!  They offer different colors and sizes, below are examples of some of the different options.

Above is a picture of my baby girl when she was 1 day old.  If you haven’t yet read my previous blog for newborn must haves part 1 please check it out.

6. The Fisher Price Rock ‘n Play is perfect for a newborn to take naps in and it is still perfect for my 9 month old while I shower, she can be in it and be happy because it rocks her and plays music.  Click on either of the 3 images to check them out.

    

7. You will definitely need gripe water for Gas, Colic and Hiccups.  I have used both of these and they both work perfectly.  Click on either of the images below.

   

8. Diaper rash ointment is a must to prevent or treat any kind of rash. Click on either of the images below.

9. Alcohol free hand sanitizer for when you are changing their diaper, preparing their bottle, or even holding them.  They have very sensitive skin so alcohol free hand sanitizer is a must. Click on the image below.

10. Laundry detergent for your newborn’s clothes.  Click on any of the images below they both work great.

 

11.  Puj Tub, a foldable and compact tub that can fit in a sink so that you are close to your newborn while bathing him or her and your baby will definitely feel secure.  Click on the image below.

12. Baby soap for their bath, I have used both below and they are both amazing.  Click on either of the images below.

13. Baby lotion to keep their skin moisturized after every bath.  Click on either of the images below.

14. Baby bottle soap and pacifier soap is a necessity.  Click on the image below.

15. Nose Frida the snot sucker to clean out your baby’s nose.  You will use this all of the time for sure.  It is also very easy to clean.  Click on the image below to purchase it also comes with extra filters so you don’t have to buy those seperately.

16.  Along with the Nose Frida you will need some kind of saline spray to loosen their snot before you aspirate it out.  Click on either of the pictures below.

These are the items that I found to be an absolute necessity besides clothes ofcourse.  Check out my Baby Must Haves Part 1.  My daughter is now 9 months old and I still use all of these items so they are definitely a great investment.

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to read my blog post.  Stay tuned for more coming soon.
