As many of you may know, I had my second baby boy (Mason Nicolas) almost 10 weeks ago. He is such a sweet baby, so calm + happy. His big brother Liam (who will be turning two next month) loves him to pieces! They are the loves of my life! ♥
Since having Mason, I’ve racked-up some more favorites >> some items listed above are for me also, to make my life just a liiiiittle bit easier. Most of the products I use on a daily basis. If you’re expecting or have a friend or family member having a baby, pass this information along. I hope you/they will find these products as useful as I have!
1| Nuk manual breast pump: I have an expensive electric breast pump as well (since having my first baby). But I wanted to try a manual too because I just get so sick + tired of all the tubes, hooking up to everything, the noise, feeling like a cow being milked…just all the crappiness that comes along with electric pumping! Well, this manual pump is actually more of a pleasant experience. I use it for those in-between times when I just need to store some milk or empty my breast because I feel too full. It’s comfortable, quick + easy to use. I mostly use it while I’m watching TV + I can usually get around 3 oz. in 10-15 min. Since buying this pump, I have not used my electric. It’s got rave reviews online. I can see why!
2| Baby foam shampoo: I love Mustela products. I received this one as a gift + I’m so glad I did! This foam shampoo works especially great if your baby has cradle cap (dry, flaky skin – similar to dandruff). Mason had a mild form of it + after just 3 uses, it was gone. I LOVE the clean, fresh baby smell + how silky soft his hair is afterwards (Mason was born with a full head of hair + still has it!). I still use it although he doesn’t have cradle cap, it’s still a good everyday shampoo.
3| The best rocker ever invented!: One word: Hallelujah! Yes, it’s that good. The rockaRoo by 4moms is the best! Mason loves it. When I need my hands-free for cooking + getting things done (like this post), I put Mason in the rocker + he’s entertained for a good while or he ends up falling asleep. 4moms also makes the mamaRoo, which I hear nothing but great things about that version too. A MUST to add to your registry!
4| The Quint Carryall: A great organizer for almost any handbag. I use this when I don’t want/need to carry my larger diaper bag » (find my diaper bag here). I pop this carryall in my TB tote (find my Tory Burch here) and I’m on my way!
5| Honestly good face + body lotion: My whole house is filled with chemical-free products. I’m a huge believer in keeping my environment + my kids as natural as possible. That’s why I LOVE The Honest Company! I get products for my house + the babies sent right to my door every month (which means 55 less trips a week to Target for me- haha!). I use everything from the diapers to bath products to laundry detergent from The Honest Co. I’m a fan of this lotion because of the crappy chemicals that it doesn’t have in it, how it absorbs into my babies’ skin, the fresh scent + how hydrating it is. » (sign up for a free trial OR subscribe to a monthly bundle here).
6| This cute traveling play pad: These play pads from blablakids are so cute, so cuddly-cushy (100% cotton) + great for taking to a family members’ house or to the park. It obviously travels well, but I use it in my home all the time too.
7| Room spray: Diaper pails tend to get a little stinky sometimes! This room spray is my favorite. It has a great fresh, pure baby scent. It’s worth it + a big bottle like this last forever!
8| Baby Cottons sleepwear: Ever since Liam was born I have been a loyal Baby Cottons client! He + Mason have tons of footies, rompers + sets from BC. I love them so much because (although pricey), their items are soooo soft » all made from 100% pima cotton, they wash incredible + last forever! Mason uses some from when Liam was an infant. They’ve been washed/used 1000 times over + his clothes are still perfect! Nothing compares.
9| This nursing tank: When I’m at home, I’m mostly in loungewear. And this cami is perfect to wear around the house. It’s comfortable, stretchy + easy to use while nursing» I own 4.
10| Dry Shampoo: Another time saver + hair saver! No Drought, absorbs the excess oils in my thick hair perfectly- allowing my blow dry to last a few days longer. It has a nice citrus fresh scent + adds a little volume also. For busy moms – it’s a MUST!
11| My favorite multi-tasking makeup product: This ‘Full Coverage SPF 50 CC+ Cream’ by IT Cosmetics is EVERYTHING! It’s my full-coverage foundation cream, anti-aging serum + SPF. One product and I’m out the door! It’s formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients + it’s just so easy to use. It helps correct my skin tone + imperfections, infuses my skin with peptides + vitamins (+more), + leaves my skin looking dewy! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE♥ (FYI a little goes a LONG way). The best value is found on QVC.
So tell me moms, what are your FAVES?
