Recently I've been a bit overwhelmed with all the things I need for our Little One who will be here in just a few months. The products out there are a bit daunting and it seems as soon as I I've decided on something, someone tells me to look at something else and then I get all confused. It puts this indecisive gal in a tailspin. I asked Lauren, one of my January sponsors, to share her "mama must haves" for today's Favorite Things Friday. Enjoy!
Hi there! I'm Lauren from Traded Dreams and I'm here today to share some of my favorite baby items. I have two little ones -- Mareto is my sweet two year old son, and Arsema is bouncy eight month old daughter. I'm so excited to share with you some of my absolute favorite products as a mama.
We absolutely love our aden+anais swaddle blankets. We have about four of their blankets for each of the kids. They're made of a light weight muslin so baby doesn't get too hot and they are big enough to swaddle even the chunkiest baby (like our Mareto was!)
I also adore my Gussy products! Her tote bags are a perfect alternative to the traditional diaper bag. My Gussy market tote is shown here and I love it for when I'm just going out with Mareto. As a toddler he doesn't need quite as much - just a diaper, cup, and a snack. When I go out with both the kids I love using my larger Gussy tote - it holds absolutely everything the kids and I need. She has some super cute new designs out too!
I found Wee and Me on Etsy just before bringing Arsema home from Ethiopia. I couldn't wait to try out her paci clips on my girl and they do not disappoint! Each one is made from soft felt with a sturdy ribbon attached. There are so many cute options so I ordered four of them! The Blueberry Cupcake clip is shown here.
We can't live without our HoMedics sounds machines. We have one for each of the kids' rooms and they are sleep savers! There are a few different settings to choose from but we keep ours on "white noise." It drowns out sounds from around the house and outside -- keeping them asleep and therefore keeping mama happy! :) Here's the one we have.
Both of my babies have very sensitive skin and they both are prone to eczema. After trying a few different things we discovered Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash. No more breakouts and no more dry skin! It's easy on the eyes of course and makes bath time fun again.
So there you have it, my five favorite things for my babies! What about you? What are your favorite products for little ones?
Lauren, thanks so much for sharing these sweet faces and your mom "treasures" with us. SO helpful!
