Expecting a baby naturally comes with all sorts of exciting sweetness as you envision holding your little love for the first time & preparing your world to revolve around such a tiny human. Thank heavens they are as cute as they are, because let's be honest, if you've had a baby or two, or three or even more (not only are you brave but you are my hero, I mean, She-ro), then you know what to expect!
Yes, every pregnancy, delivery & newborn are so beautifully unique, but you are well aware of the long nights, or sometimes all-nighters. And can we talk about the crazy hormones that can follow delivery where tears can fall at the drop of a hat because their SO stinking cute & because you're so stinking tired? If you are a first time Momma, you are going to do incredible & just know that when you don't always know what to do, you are not alone. You are enough & you will make it. Deep breath in, deep breath out, you got this. You will learn your baby's cries, sounds & the crazy, insanely cute heart eyes they have for their Mama is enough to fill your love tank every single time you look at them!
To say how fun and exciting it is to be welcoming a beautiful baby in the world & to carry the title of "Mommy" is a privilege & a badge of honor (even on the hard days). I wanted to share with y'all some of my favorite baby items. Those items that are practical & just incredibly cute!!! Be prepared for me to overuse the words "sweet, cute & darling"... I just can't help myself! Don't miss the quick link reference guide at the bottom and snag some amazing discounts-yes please!
There is nothing sweeter that a bare baby bum & to have bum butter that is wonderful for rashes, eczema for baby's sensitive skin & even helps with stretch marks!! Hallelujah!! I'm pretty sure we can all agree that this Charlotte's Bum Butter is a must have baby product! I am SO excited to have such a darling little bonnet like this one from Little Outfitters my newborn will be sporting for her newborn photo shoot. It's just too cute & I can't wait to see her in it!
Teething bracelets, necklaces & teething attachments for the car seat are truly life savors for the car, church, dinner or wherever really. When they are teething, you need something literally at all times for them to gnaw on. Thank you to Muki Kids for creating this adorable necklace & Benjamin's Buttons and Beads for the sweet bisquit teething clip, bracelet and wood ring.
Who knew since my last little one, now there is a scarf like this one from Jasemet that transforms into a nursing cover for easy access & on the spot feeding for my girl? This invention is genius & I can't leave out that it also becomes a car seat cover and high chair or shopping cart down the road(insert both hands in the air emoji)!
Oh personalized blankie, you get me every time & the best part is, everyone will know her name. I love this one of a kind blankie by Audrey's Bear. It's so stretchy so I can get my girl all swaddled & cozy. I must include the fact that for every blanket purchased, they donate one to a NICU baby or pediatric cancer center through their Swaddle 4 Swaddle Program.
Fearless, exuberent, confident, beautiful, breathtaking & powerful are some of the amazng words on this soft black and white Ooby Dooby Baby Blanket. I love it, because after all, all those things she will be. Can we also talk about these cutesie bibs they make as well? It's one thing to have bibs, but it's anothing thing to have bibs that actually absorb all the drool, breast milk or formula during burping time. Love the trendiness of the black & white pattern and I <3 milk bibs. Best thing is the come in a set of four and a free paci strap.
Yes, you read that right, Girlie Glue. It's an all natural accessory glue for those no hair babes or those that aren't headband fans. It's made with Agave Nectar and washes away easily with water. I mean this is genius! You can use the dainty little bows all on their own or use the same glue to mix it up and place upon the cute felt flowers first.
Its obviously quite essential to have a paci strap like this one from Ooby Dooby Baby. That way when you or your wee one drops it 184,372 times a day, it doesn't fall on the floor, but it falls on their lap. Not to mention how cute the polka dots are.
Oh sweet Kinsley, I cannot wait to keep your sweet little ears warm in this a-dor-a-ble beanie! Sweet bow-check! Her name in script-check! I am in love with this hat by After Sunset Creations and will definitely include in my hospital bag.
So there you have it! Some of my favorite goodies for my sweet gal on the way! I hope you've oooed and ahhhed as much as I have. If you've got a little on the way or know someone who does, make sure to take advantage of the discounts below graciously given to us from these lovely shops.
