When you are preparing for a baby and have a baby/child, baby gear is a BIG TOPIC! There are so many different products and brands on the market. It is hard to navigate them all and know which ones to try. Recently, Babble Boxx sent some great samples for me to try out and share with all of you. I had already heard of and tried each baby brand, and was very excited to try the mom brand! Yes, once you are a mom, you still need things to pamper you too! Lets dive in to some great products!
We were first introduced to the OBall brand before Brooke was born. Kevin and I were walking around Target and saw this fun OBall Rattle in pink. We bought it for Brooke and it turned out to be such a great purchase. It was one of the first toys she played with because it was easy to grasp with her little hands. I loved it because it was easy to clean too! Baby’s are constantly spitting up and putting things in their moth and the OBall Rattle can easily be wiped clean. Expecting mom friends, this is a great registry item!
We put this on our registry for Baby Kevin and he has loved it so much too. We keep it on our diaper bag the most because its so easy to play with on the go. OBall has such great sensory items for your baby and I highly recommend them!
Beech-Nut Stage 1 Oatmeal Cereal
I know there is great discussion in the baby world about Baby Cereal, so I wanted to share our experience. Both of my kids pediatricians recommended we start oatmeal cereal around 4 months old. Beech-Nut Stage 1 Oatmeal Cereal is a great first food for starting solids. For moms, it has an easy-pour spout to prevent spilling, built-in measuring cap and it is ultra-portable to fit in your bag easily!
Both of our kids loved the taste and it provided a great base for starting other solids as well. Using a cereal that was easily portable was key for us, because we are constantly on the go. I need brands that are easy and convenient, yet of course, great tasting. You can find out more about the Beech-Nut on their website and here is a coupon to save $1.50 on any 2 Beech-Nut cereal canisters.
bloom BABY Wipes
Mamas, you want these on hand! As a mom who has two babies with sensitive skin (one with highly senstive skin) I can honestly say that having a baby wipe on hand that is water based, gentle on eczema, soothing to a rash and all natural is so important. bloom BABY wipes are highly natural, jumbo-sized, uber-soft and are made with clear energy and glacial water. They are soft to the touch and gentle for your baby.
I still remember the distinct cry from Brooke when she had her first terrible diaper rash. I was a new, first time mom and had no idea that products like this existed yet. All I had was normal wipes with chemicals that burned her bottom, so I was wetting down rags and doing my best. It was far from ideal. Thankfully, we found these soon after and didn’t have to deal with that again. Learn from our mistake and check out these great bloom BABY wipes.
Vichy: Mineral 89 & Auqualia Thermal Rich Cream
In every great diaper bag, there is something for mama. One of the best lessons I learned early on was that it is easy to get so caught up in your babies that you forget to take care of yourself. This might be snacks for you, or a fun, much needed product from Vichy. Vichy Mineral 89 boots hydration and pairs well with Aqualia Thermal for 48-hr deep hydration. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is a moisturizing cream that fortifies sensitive skin while boosting hydration and comfort.
A great face moisturizer was something I really needed after having my babies. My skin was very dehydrated for the first nine months after having my kids, so this was essential. I really like the combination of these products. I feel like they work really well together and your skin just feels so awesome after using them. I would highly recommend these!
