I’ve been waiting and waiting for Baby C to be able to fit into Agoo Tushie Huggers forever, she’s not a petite baby, just simply not quite ready for this next fashion experience. However when I tried them on this morning much to my surprise they, errr, sort of fit…see the rest of the post for a cute picture. Needless to say at 5 months she still has a lot of growing to do!
I love Tushie Huggers, not only do they take the guesswork out of getting baby dressed, (you already have two bottom pieces matched,) but they’re great for when you want your child to be cute but dressed for the cooler weather. Read More
When it comes to nursing wear there are a lot of options out there and these days you don’t have to settle for something that doesn’t flatter your body or looks like something designed just for nursing moms.
Phoebe Nursingwear provides nursing moms with the option to wear stylish clothing that won’t hinder their ability to nurse. As soon as I saw Phoebe Nursingwear I fell in love with so many of their different choices.
You know the saying, “Save the Drama for yo Momma?” Well, in this case you can save the Drama for your Momma, your sister, your daughter, son, anyone you can think of, this is Royal Drama!
Royal Drama’s shirts come in several different styles from t-shirts, to hoodies and even cute little dresses, (can you tell I’m the mom to two girls?) I love all of the sassy sayings on the Royal Drama clothing line and found it hard to pick from them.
The first time I became a mom everything was new to me, even from the moments after recovering from my c-section. This time around, with Baby C, I decided that a lot of things would be different. From what I packed in my hospital bag to the way I nursed and even the way I put Baby C down for naps and sleep.
A few other decisions I had made were regarding choices that were hopefully going to make my stay in the hospital and even being at home easier. With Little Miss A I wore the hospital gown the entire time I was in the hospital, which was fine, but this time I thought wearing something different during my stay would make me feel more fresh and prettier, so I opted for Japanese Weekend Maternity wear. Let me tell you I am so glad that I found Japanese Weekend Maternity!
With Father’s Day just around the corner, I’ve been looking for some gift alternatives to the usual suspects…you know, the tie, cuff links, macaroni anything. Past years we’ve gotten Daddy B, a trip to a theme park, (in case you don’t know he’s a roller coaster superstar see thecoastercritic.com), a hand-painted shirt with Miss A’s handprints, handmade cards, and sort of a Wii 😉
Nonetheless, we try to make each year special with at least one homemade element, and this year will not be any different. I did however find these amazing shirts that I just fell in love with. They’re like a Father’s Day card for years that daddy can wear all around to show his fatherly pride.
Sometimes it’s hard to be trendy when you’re a mom, well at least for us “real” moms, it takes work. I know for me I didn’t roll out of the hospital maternity ward in the latest fashions, in fact I was happy just to be able to wear my pregnancy clothes while my new mom body took shape.
With this second pregnancy I felt like I was a little more well versed in being a mom who had it more together. I found that a lot of times non-maternity clothes looked best on me. For some reason maternity manufacturers think making your baby bump look bigger is the ultimate goal, well, if you’re like me I didn’t need or want to accentuate the bump, I just wanted to look like a cute mommy with a little bit of fashion sense.
Baby C has completed her first review 🙂 Hooray!!
Like most babies, little Baby C is not a huge fan of baths (yet). She’s not a huge fan of being naked and cold and wet, until it comes to hair washing time, and then she’s in heaven. We are currently giving her sponge baths on the kitchen counter, but that’s going to change soon since she has her very own “big girl” belly button. Hooray for her first milestone! So of course we have the baby wash, washcloths, and water, but we also have the Bebe Au Lait Hooded Infant Bath Towel.
Since this is our second child we’ve accumulated about 10 cute hooded towels, but this Bebe Au Lait towel is my favorite by far. In fact, I’m sad when we have to wash it because then I can’t use it. When I gave Baby C her bath using this towel was the first time she didn’t cry during bath, it could have been the fact that mommy is faster at bathing than Daddy B, but I really think it was the comfort and warmth of this towel.

I love seeing newborn babies in the hospital, not only are they an amazing blessing but they also look like cute little burritos swaddled in their blankets. I don’t think I ever got the hang of wrapping Little Miss A up quite like they did at the hospital though. I think I’d compare it to when you go get your hair done at a salon and try to recreate it yourself the next day with no help. But nonetheless I swaddled her, people unwrapped her to see her hands and feet, (I guess to make sure they were still there,) and I re-swaddled her again.
Being that I’m a short mommy I’m sure she was scrunched pretty tightly in my womb so I wanted her to feel like she was at home. So I did my best to wrap her tightly, but being a first time mom I didn’t know there was a much easier way than folding, using my knees, mouth, elbows and any extra body parts I had available to perform the perfect baby swaddle. Fortunately for my resourcefulness and great word of mouth from other moms, I found Halo. Read More
