I still remember standing in Babies ‘R Us with my husband when I was pregnant with my first baby, holding a scanner and feeling completely overwhelmed by the sheer amount of baby products lining the aisles while randomly adding the cutest looking ones to our baby registry.

Fast forward five years, and one of the nicest things about having my third baby as opposed to my first is knowing what I really need, and what random crap is just not worth my money or storage space. I went a bit Marie Kondo and purged a bunch of things from my collection this time around (sayonara, mini jetted baby tub!) and thought for sure I wouldn’t have to buy anything else but noticed a few gaps in my baby arsenal. Here are a few new products I discovered this time around:

 Baby K’Tan Active Wrap 

I love the idea of a wrap for teeny babies since a structured carrier just doesn’t seem to hold them as snugly. When I was pregnant with my daughter someone gave me a popular brand of wrap and the first thing I thought when I saw all the yards of sweatshirt-like fabric was “ain’t nobody got time for that” and the second was “this thing is going to be HOT.” Sure enough, even after watching a ton of YouTube tutorials it still took me about ten minutes to get my daughter into the thing, and after wearing her for less than an hour we were both sweaty messes despite the chilly November temps. That wrap was one of the first things to go into my discard pile. 

Luckily this Baby K’Tan carrier solved both of my issues. It’s essentially a “wrap without the wrapping”, since the two connected fabric loops make putting it on a cinch, and their Active model is made of breathable, lightweight material that makes wearing my baby a comfortable experience even during the hottest months of the year. This thing has been an absolute lifesaver as I’ve chased my two older kids around parks, splash pads, and pools this summer.

 Go Joonie Carseat Cover  

After dealing with fabric carseat covers that didn’t seem to actually cover my carseat so much as create needless bulk and attract dirt and stains, I was intrigued when I saw a photo of the joonie on Instagram. This cover is essentially a sleek camping tent for your carseat. It’s made of lightweight (wipeable!) fabric that fits tightly all around the edge of your carseat, with breathable vents on both sides so you can peek in on your little one without disturbing their carseat slumber. Genius! The Joonie’s design shields your baby from rain or wind, and keeps prying hands away from your little one. It’s ideal for moms that find themselves on the go a lot. 

 

 

Fridet MomWasher by Fridababy 

If you’ve had a vaginal birth, you’re probably pretty familiar with this thing:

Ah, the hospital-issued perineal rinse bottle. Pretty standard, right? Well, in much the same way that they gave the ubiquitous bulb syringe a makeover with the nosefrida, the folks at Fridababy have now made life easier for us recovering moms by replacing this bottle with their new fridet mom washer.

fridet works with gravity, making it so that you don’t have to get your hand anywhere near the rim of the toilet bowl (eww) when using it, and you get a more, ahem, thorough cleansing experience in a fraction of the time. Just trust me on this one and include this bottle in your hospital bag. Your lady parts will thank you later. 

 

 

 

I wanted to share some of my favorite baby products that I find myself loving & using daily! It's been 10 years since my first baby so it's fun to see all the new things that come out each baby I have.
 
 
 
#1. Brazil's best kept secret- Natura Mamãe e Bebê perfume. You can get it on Amazon and it smells like a dreeeeam! I have used this with all my babies cheirosos!
 
#2. The Woombie- this zippy swaddler is made of a stretchy jersey knit so baby can wiggle his arms up if he wants to but keeps him nice and snug. I have loved this for nighttime with a newborn.
 
#3. The Joonie- My own sister invented this! So you may think I'm biased (of course I am!) but it really is the car seat cover of my dreams! It keeps the wind and rain and little hands out and I constantly find myself thinking how much I love it! Thanks sista! Check it out @gojoonie
 
#4 White noise app- we use this at night with Lily on an ocean sound and it cuts out the noise from what's going on in our little house. Also, Max loves the rain sound and it calms him down and keeps him calm & sleeping at night. I love how it's on my phone so it's always close.
 
#5. Nose Frida- I was a bit skeptical about sucking my kid's snot out through a tube but my friend gave me this and it is seriously the best! Way better suction than the blue bulb and I use it for my toddler too!
 
#6. Undercover Mama nursing top- this has become a favorite part of my wardrobe because every 3 hours no matter where I am I need to be able to nurse! This top hooks to my nursing bra so everything stays in place when I lift up the top layer of the shirt. Lol. Thank goodness for nursing friendly clothes! @undercover_mama 

Let's face it, sometimes you don't want to haul around your big stroller.  Or maybe you don't have room in your trunk for you regular stroller.  Or maybe your baby is turning into a toddler and you don't need the travel system anymore.  No matter the reason, sometimes you need a really great umbrella stroller.  Here are our 4 favorites for 2017:

 

This has one of the coolest features I've ever seen in an umbrella stroller.  Baby can face you or face the world!   Plus it has a six-position recline which means it can definitely be a napping stroller.  The canopy is quite large which helps protect baby from the sun.  It handles smoothly and is one of the best umbrella style strollers out there that can also accommodate an infant.
 

This is a great lightweight stroller with a one-handed fold.  What makes this one awesome is that it also accepts graco carseats!  GENIUS!  It can also accommodate a child up to 50 pounds so you can still get a lot of use out of it.  
 

This is the most cost conscious our favorites, but it's still pretty great.   It has a 4-position recline with a 5 point safety harness, anti-shock front wheels and lockable rear wheels, and an adjustable and removable canopy with flip out sun visor
 

This umbrella stroller is amazing!  It's only 7.5 pounds!  It has ergonomic, anti-microbial handles, a large-ish sunshade, a peekaboo window, a linked braking system, a large basket, a rain cover and four-wheel suspension.  It's a little pricey, but I've been a fan of the Maclaren umbrella strollers for a long time and this one doesn't disappoint.

There are a million diaper bag choices out there, but it seems that every year they get better and better.  Here's our top three favorites:
 

We are loving this new bag from PPB.  The outside is glazed cotton canvas which makes it super easy to clean.  It has coordinating packing pods called pixels and dividers called caddys that can help keep you super organized.  It is one of the most customizable bags we've seen!  And we love the fact that it can be a tote or a backpack.
 

This is a beautiful bag.  You can definitely carry this one even when you're out of the diaper bag stage.  It comes in a variety of stunning colors and has 10 pockets!  One of the best features is the fact that it opens super wide so you can easily spot anything you're looking for.  It can also be carried as a tote of backpack.
 

This is our favorite cost conscious bag!  It's a great mid-sized bag with lots of compartments and it's easy to clean which are our 2 most important features.  And it comes with complimentary stroller straps and a matching folding changing pad.  

Have you read our first post on Binge Worthy Shows to Watch While Breastfeeding?  The way we see it, new babies nurse around 8 times in a 24 hour period at 20-40 minutes per time which definitely gives you some time to binge watch.   Here's a a few more of our favorites:
 

1- The Mindy Project

Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) is a 30-something OB/GYN, working and living in New York City. In season four, Mindy finds herself struggling to balance life as a working mom.  It's a funny, lighthearted, it's okay if you don't totally pay attention kind of show.

 

2- Jane the Virgin
After being accidentally artificially inseminated with her boss’s specimen, this show takes some crazy, sometimes violent, awkward and hilarious turns.  
 

3- Call The Midwife
This might seem a little too close to home after having just given birth, but there’s something to be said for being it being relatable.  Plus, you'll be grateful for some of the more modern conveniences and medical advances.  And I love a good period drama.
 

4- House Hunters International
Tell me I'm not the only one who has been sucked into an HGTV marathon.  These episodes are like 22 minutes so if your baby nurses extra long like mine did, you can get in a few episodes each time.  I mean, look at all you can accomplish while nursing!
 
 

5- Freaks and Geeks
You guys, this is an all-star cast including baby Seth Rogan, baby Jason Segal, baby James Franco, and baby Busy Phillips.  Tragically it's only one season but it's a good story line and definitely worth the binge. 
 
 

Hi Undercover Mamas! We are delighted to be here with you lovely ladies. Mom's Stuff is a small company run by a mother (Lee Bennion) and daughter (that's me! Zina) and we love providing an all natural product to help meet the needs of moms, dads, babies, kids and animals alike! Lee began making her original product, All Purpose Piñon Salve, over 20 years ago to meet the needs of our family. She is a painter and avid horsewoman and loves the outdoors. Her husband is a potter and river guide and they both suffered from cracked hands and feet and rough skin. Lee was purchasing a salve at a local health food store, but it didn't quite do everything she wanted it to. She started to experiment with making her own salve and over five years, through lots of research and testing, came up with the perfect formula. The result was a product that moisturizes, nourishes, and protects skin from dry climate, water and sun exposure, and more.

Slowly, friends and family started pressuring her to sell the salve and a business was born. As she started selling the salve, customers began writing in about all the different ways they used the salve and how it helped.

People reported it helped soothe eczema, psoriasis, mystery rashes, bug bites and more.

The salve is made from a unique blend of all-natural ingredients each chosen for specific purposes. Several of the ingredients are antibacterial, anti-fungal and antimicrobial. There are no filler ingredients (like water, cheap oils or stabilizers) meaning it has 100% active ingredients (most products, even natural ones, are 2-6% active ingredients). This makes for a concentrated formula that packs a powerful punch. Just a little goes a long way, and as the oils penetrate the skin the beeswax makes a breathable barrier so it stays put doing you skin good all day long.

Over the years we have had lots and lots of mamas report that they use our salve in all kinds of ways on their kids from newborn to grown such as: diaper rash, eczema, cradle cap, cuts and scrapes, bumps and rashes, and more. It also helps protect your hard working mom hands!

Whether you are an exclusive pumper or just ocassionally use your breast pump, we can all agree that pumping is a PAIN. BeauGen is a company created to help moms have a more positive, more comfortable breast-pumping experience.

They've created a soft and stretchy nipple cushion that adds significantly more comfort to each pumping session by creating a soft barrier between your skin and the hard plastic breast shield. The cushions will move and stretch with the nipple during pumping.
