Do you need a baby tub? After a lot of babies and a lot of experience, we can honestly say we have found our favorite!
"The Puj Tub makes bathing your baby so fast, easy and convenient. After using a conventional tub for our first baby and dealing with the hassle of filling it up, cleaning it out, and storing it, I knew we wanted to go a different route for our second. The puj has made it so our baby actually gets bathed on a regular basis! Definitely one of our favorite baby purchases!"
Here are our favorite features:
- Cradles and comforts baby
- Hangs flat for easy and convenient storage
- Mold and mildew resistant
- Fits in standard-sized bathroom sinks
- Works with pedestal and countertop bathroom sinks
And here's the best part: We have teamed up with Puj to give our favorite baby tub away!
Every mama needs a good stroller and a fabulous diaper bag and we have found two fabulous finds! The Guzzie and Guss G+G101 works like a full-size stroller, but is compact enough to fit in the smallest spaces and weighs only 16lbs! It will hold any infant car seat and the fabric is a heavy gauge nylon which is highly resistant to normal wear, tear and fading, while the footrest and bumper bar are wrapped in a dirt-resistant material that makes it simple to clean.
Here's what we love about the G+G101 Stroller:
Ultra compact fold and Lightweight
Flip out Visor 5-point harness
Linked rear Brake
Lockable front wheels
Removable front bar
Car seat compatible
And what a better match to the red stroller than a diaper bag from The Bumble Collection. One of our favorite bags is the Rachel Roundabout in Royal Ruby Montage.
Here's why we love it:
Water & Stain Resistant
Comfort Handle Straps
Built-in Stroller Straps
Top Zipper Closure for added security
Soil-Proof Changing Pad
But here's the best part, we are giving away the G+G101 Stroller, the Rachel Roundabout Diaper Bag and an Undercover Mama!
Chasing a busy toddler or picking up after kids all day? Back pain while pregnant? The good news is, your baby is growing.

If you find yourself with a lot of back pain, especially in the last stages of pregnancy, have we got the tool for you: The Grip 'n Grab Picker Upper. This is mostly applicable to baby #2 and onward but we promise it is so worth it!
Save your back, the price is your pride... and $17.99 to have it shipped to your door!

Sometimes us moms need a little help boosting our supply. Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the leaves, stems, seeds, bark, roots, and flowers of plants and have a wide range of physical and emotional uses including supporting a breastfeeding mother. DōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils work great! Our friend Melissa is a dōTERRA consultant and has shared some of these incredible tips with us about Oils That Assist Lactation:
-Fennel and Clary Sage help promote initial milk production
-Basil and Geranium promote milk production
-Peppermint promotes a possible decrease in milk production
These CPTG oils can be used topically or taken internally.
TOPICALLY: place 2 TBSP of a carrier oil, like dōTERRA's Fractionated Coconut Oil, in a glass bowl or container and add 10 - 15 drops of your chosen oil(s). Apply a small amount of the mixture on your breasts, avoiding the nipples.
INTERNALLY: place 1 - 2 drops in a capsule, in a small amount of water or under your tongue. Start off using them once a day and increase or decrease as needed.
Note: If you become pregnant, or have any concerns about using essential oils while breastfeeding, please consult your physician.
Melissa is a stay at home mom of two amazing little boys - a 17 month old nursling and a 3 year old toddler. dōTERRA essential oils have been a blessing for her and her family, and she truly enjoys sharing what she has learned with others, so that they too can experience the amazing benefits of these essential oils.

When I'm out and about and I walk by a mom breastfeeding her baby, I'm overwhelmed with emotions. I'm a little envious while at the same time glad that part of my life is behind me. I feel an instant connection to her. "I'VE BEEN THERE!" I want to shout. (creepy) I want to go up to her and give her a big hug(awkward). So I usually just walk by and give her a smile and maybe a thumbs up on brave days.
That was before. Now, I casually take a little card out of my purse. I walk over and with as little interruption as possible hand her the card. It felt strange at first, but now that I've seen the smiles and laughs these cards have generated, I get excited to give them out.
To celebrate Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we are giving away our NIP cards for free, while supplies last. So when you see a mom breastfeeding, give her a smile and hand her a card. I bet it will make her day!
