Must-Have Products for Baby

August 13, 2018 No Comments

With Dumpling on the way, I’ve been checking out all of these different products. I love researching and finding out what’s new, since things change so quickly. Products that were a must have with Birdie don’t even exist anymore! Things change pretty quickly. Here is a round up of some products that I just had to have.

DockATot Deluxe+ Dock click to get $10 off!

I want Dumpling to hang out in our room for the first six months or so. I wanted something that would be perfect for him or her to hang out on our bed. After speaking to a few friends, some research and just social media surfing, I found out about the DockATot Deluxe+. It seems like a great product. It’s like a lounger and I can have Dumpling just lounging about.

The DockATot comes in two sizes – deluxe for 0-8 months and grand for 9-36 months. It just seems so convenient. I think that it would be great to transition into a toddler bed later on. You can use it for multiple reasons, including diaper changes and even tummy time. It’s 100% cotton and OEKO-TEX Certified. It’s handmade in Europe. I got Carrara Marble. I’m loving the gray marble. It’s working with our monochrome theme since we have no idea what Dumpling is!

Binxy Baby Shopping Cart Hammockclick to get 10% off!

Grocery shopping is my thing. I go once a week and I love it. It’s my time out and I love shopping around for fresh produce and getting good deals on meat. So every since finding out about Dumpling, I’ve been trying to figure out how I was going to make this work. I have Birdie walking, I don’t trust Tot to walk – he’ll take off. So he’s been sitting in the cart, sometimes I babywear. And now with Dumpling? This will be perfect! A hammock! They can hang over the items in the shopping cart. I don’t have to put an infant car seat in there and have it take up all the room.

The Binxy Baby fits most shopping carts and it holds up to 50 lb. (or until they sit up) – which is perfect since my babies turn into little Butterballs. I got Indigo Dream! I love this color.

The Ollie World Swaddle – click to get 10% off!

I’ve used receiving blankets to swaddle Birdie and Tot, so I was excited to check out The Ollie Swaddle. It’s made of moisture wicking material so Dumpling won’t overheat. I love that it has easy access to the bottom, for quick middle of the night diaper changes. I received one in the color Stone. Plus, isn’t this packaging the cutest?!

What do you recommend for a new baby?

Disclosure: Items were sent to me for this post, but I chose all items and all opinions are my own. Thank you to all the brands!

  • We pulled out our @appleblossomwovens Black Agate Tencel wrap for this chilly weather. It’s been cold and rainy, so the extra coziness of Tencel has been great. ⁣

Black Agate has been one of our favorite monochrome wraps ever. 🖤 It truly speaks to me. I can’t wait for Reflection to be released which is another monochrome wrap, with a kaleidoscope weave. Both white and black weft are speaking to me. M

  • Who is always at the ready to take somebody’s head off during the holidays? 🙋🏽‍♀️ Just look at me wrong or finish my favorite dish and it’s over. ⁣
⁣
The social anxiety is real and @socialcbd has really helped during this past holiday week and the upcoming festivities. Thank you #SocialCBD for helping this mama out during the holidays. ⁣

  • Obsessing over @squeezamals this holiday season! The picnic pack was the cutest addition to our Squeezamals collection. Everything came for a perfect picnic lunch. ⁣
⁣
Dumpling loves the texture of the squish of the Squeezamals. She is always found with one in her hands. ⁣
⁣
If you’re interested in grabbing some for your littles, check out your local @walmart!

  • I volunteered in my daughter’s classroom for Thanksgiving. I helped on the food line so I had to tie Dumpling to my back and make turkey sandwiches. We do teach the kids that we don’t actually celebrate Thanksgiving, and the teachers discussed the truth with the kids. I’m glad I didn’t have to step in like previous years 🤦🏽‍♀️⁣
⁣
My tote bag from @shopkindredtogether is my favorite though. I’m able to fit everything in there. A quick link to the shop is in my profile & you can use code APRILOCT to save 💰 ⁣

  • We were so lucky to be able to check out the Flip & Spin for the Win bundle - thanks to @PowerYourFun. The bundle included Laser Launchers (which I can’t pry out of Tot’s hands), the Mini Cyclone Stunt Car, and Turbo Tops Gyro Cars - which you see pictured here. These are our favorite part of the bundle, the kiddos are constantly try to do tricks with them. ⁣

Thank you Kaliber Global Toys for this awesome gift! #sponsored #PowerYourFun #TurboTops @apexdropofficial
  • Yesterday was my birthday! I’m thirty-something (the something is silent 🤪) and it was a good day. A made it back from a 10 day trip just in time to celebrate. The kids were so excited to make mom’s day fun. ⁣⁣

My sister always grabs a red velvet bundt cake for me and I love it. It’s my favorite. My grandmother used to bake me a red velvet cake every year when I was younger and it’s important to me to have it. ⁣

Here’s to another revolution around the sun ☀️
  • I posted about the awesome @pjmasks PJ Masks Seeker about a month ago. I grabbed it at @target and kept it hidden until it was Tot’s birthday. He had already completely forgotten about it & it was a wonderful surprise to open on his day 🎂 He’s been playing with it nonstop and his sisters keep trying to get a turn. ⁣
⁣
Thank you to MomSelect for gifting us this toy. It’s the perfect toy for this @pjmasks obsessed family. #ad⁣

  • My middle child. My wild child. He’s officially 5 years old and 1 day. I tried to make sure he had a fun filled day yesterday and now I’m exhausted. This year he decided he didn’t like cake and asked for donuts instead 🍩 ⁣

Happy birthday Tot 💕
  • We saved this Star Wars coding kit for Tot’s birthday and it was a hit! He was totally interested in putting it together and making things work. He’s my little tinker. ⁣
