It pretty much goes without saying: new baby = new stuff. Lots of stuff. Well, here you go, pregnant and new Mamas... We're happy to share with you just a few of our recent favorite products. The following must-haves have been provided to us for review, and all deserve a big fat Mama Seal of Approval!
We love Bumbleride! Flite is a light & compact version of their other awesome models, with all the style. This stroller is amazing. Think of Flite as the ultimate umbrella-style stroller: lightweight, a cinch to open & close, and totally portable. No more struggling to lug something in and out of the trunk! Both the backrest and footrest are multi-adjustable, and it's compatible with many popular carseats. Flite is super sleek, has lovely color combinations, and I love how you can still just snap the carseat in and go.
Then you have a third travel option for Flite. Possibly my favorite feature, the Bumbleride Carrycot combines the luxury of a bassinet with the ease of a baby carrier. It snaps right in to the stroller, rear facing, for an old-fashioned buggy feel. I love that baby can lay down flat, great for naps and making diaper changing on-the-go a breeze. The zip-on Footmuff and Seat Liner provide extra coziness and security, plus storage pockets!
Strollin' just does not get much better with Bumbleride, who- on top of fabulous products- provide excellent customer service.
The Baby K'tan carrier is a 100% natural cotton or organic cotton, ergonomically designed, soft sling-style baby carrier. Safe and stylish, this sling is awesome! It is very comfortable to wear, offers nine unique wearing positions, and is easily washable. Best of all, it is super cozy for baby! In the standard cradle position, my little guy just falls into the deepest sleep, as the snug fit must really resemble the feel of the womb. And running errands with four kids? The Baby K'tan truly becomes priceless.
When it comes to baby bathing, the options can be overwhelming. We look for chemical-free products, which is why we really dig Lafe's. Lafe's Natural and Organic baby products are free of BPA and phthalates, the most commonly-known endocrine disruptors. Lafe's addresses what's in the packaging as well as what's in the product, providing parents with a worry-free choice for their babies. The foaming shampoo & wash is my favorite. With only five ingredients [all but the water being certified organic], you just know you're making the best choice. The foam is very convenient, it doesn't dry out baby's skin whatsoever, and the natural scent is so clean (no fragrance for my baby, thankyouverymuch!). Bathtime being a huge part of our bedtime routine, I feel completely confident with Lafe's.
Belly 9 high quality maternity wear combines comfort with fun to spice up your preggo wardrobe. Ribbed Maternity Tanks are a soft & stretchy, breathable cotton thermal, cut long to cover your belly all 9 months and beyond. A true maternity staple. With several affordable, clever choices, PUSH IT REAL GOOD is my fave.
We tried the versatile ingrid & isabel everywear pant. You can wear the waistband all the way up for full belly coverage, fold it to the waist or hips for some extra support under the belly, or pull it all the way down around your hips for a skirt-over-pant look. The fabric is super stretchy and we love that it can be dressed up or dressed down. I'm a fan of anything I can roll out of bed in, and yet not embarrass my kids during school drop-off!
A great accompaniment to the everywear pant, the Shade Ruched Long Sleeve Top is extra long in front for full coverage and ruched down the sides. A cotton/spandex blend, this top is extremely comfy, as well as cute & stylish.
