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. ¬†ūüôā ¬†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. ūüôā ¬†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. ūüôā ¬†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! ūüôā

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.

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.

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.

Must have items for a newborn part 1

Must have items for a newborn part 1

I am a mom to a sweet 9 month old baby girl.  I always want the best for her and I want her to always be as comfortable as possible.  Our babies will not be able to let us know if something is bothering them for a while, which is why we as moms have to make sure that we are always watching over them and doing what we think is best for them.

In this post I will list and link the items that I found were a must for me, I still use all of these items 9 months into motherhood.  I will place a description of each item and I will then post a picture of the item where you can click and it will take you directly to the Amazon website were you can purchase.  As a mom shopping on Amazon is a must.

  1.  Chemical free diapers perfect for newborn skin.  These diapers are the best in my opinion, you get so many for such a good price and the quality is amazing.  They are very soft as they are made out of cotton.  Click on the image below to purchase.  Below the diaper picture is a link to the wipes that I use as well.

2.  Burp cloths are a must to clean up any spit up or any mess that you might need to clean up.  When you have a newborn these are your best friend, I still use them to clean her up after she eats her puree foods.  Click on the image below, I love these because they are durable and very absorbent.

3. My daughter started sleeping through the night at 2 months old and I thank the Dock a tot Deluxe. ¬†I know it was this for sure because there has been nights that we don’t use it and she wakes up a few times throughout the night. ¬†Click on the image below. ¬†Below the first image is the Dock a tot Grand which is for 9 months and up. ¬†Trust me moms it is worth the money.

4.  If you ever want to get some time to yourself and have someone else feed your baby you will need baby bottles.  I love these because they are small and easy to wash.  The nipple and lid are all in one, no need to have more than 2 pieces per bottle while washing.  Also, they have fun quotes on the bottom of the bottle.  Click on the image below.

5. A Bottle warmer to warm up the babies milk.  Below is the one that I use, it is perfect because it has a setting specifically to warm up breast milk, it helps preserve the nutrients.  Click on the image below.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my post.  Soon I will post a part 2 for the newborn must haves.  Always remember it is a beautiful day to have a beautiful day.
