A Few of my Favorite Things

Monday, August 4, 2014

Must have Monday!

As a new mom, there are plenty of products I can't live without, and a few that I am just happy to have found! Here are some of our favorites!

For Hallie:
Kate Quinn Organics Receiving Blanket
Hallie is a big fan of being swaddled, but many of the blankets we have found are either too short and she busts out of the swaddle with her long legs too quickly. Or long, but too thin and she gets cold too easily.  This receiving blanket by Kate Quinn Organics has been the only blanket that I have found that is an exception to these two rules.  It is super soft and Hallie LOVES it, can you tell?!

Nylon Headbands
I am sure every other girl mom can relate to this: but without fail anytime Hallie and I are out and about without a bow or headband on her cute little head, someone will stop and ask me if she is a boy or a girl?! Never mind she is wearing pink! These headbands have become my favorite because they are nice and simple and come in a variety of colors. There are a ton of Etsy shops that carry them, but this one had a nice variety pack! 

For Mommy: 
Gillian & O'Malley Nursing Bras
I am exclusively pumping for Hallie and these nursing bras have been terrific! Especially for my (now only 1!) middle of the night pumps.  They easily unhook and drop in the front so you can nurse or pump without having to completely undress in the front!

Child's Name Necklace:

This is by far my favorite product right now! I love having Hallie's name around my neck! Especially when I go somewhere without her, it makes me still feel close to her! This little gem I found on Etsy and it arrived just in time for me to wear to the hospital the next day for Hallie to make her arrival.  (If you haven't heard Hallie's birth story, you can do so Here)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and a terrific week! If you have any products you love, feel free to share them with me! :)

  1. What beautiful items.... I love those headbands but my kids never seemed too... those seem more comfortable than the ones I had though. Also, I found sporting bras were great while nursing.... I had to sleep in bras as well and the sports bras to me were most comfortable!

  2. Thank you! Yes, I was told if I wanted her to keep bows and headbands on, to start early! I've heard people call it bow training!


Don't be shy, I'd love to hear what you think! Don't forget to follow us!
