I truly can’t believe our Lola Rose will be 8 months old next week. This journey through motherhood has been quite the adventure and although we still have so much to learn and experience together, I’ve loved every minute of it.
I think one of my favorite parts of this journey has been sharing it with you guys. You’re truly the best “virtual” aunties and it seems like we all have bonded over our chats about all things baby products which is why I’m so excited to share the latest round of products we love.
Baby Magic – Creamy Baby Oil
We’ve dealt with our fair share of skin issues with our little bear over the past few months and although we know it’s pretty much normal baby sensitivity, it still doesn’t put this first time mama at much ease. What has been helpful is knowing there are products out there that can help soothe, moisturize and keep our girl’s skin baby soft. The Baby Magic Creamy Baby Oil is one of the products we’ve been incorporating into Lola’s self care routine. Not only does it lock in hydration after bath time but it keep Lola’s skin feeling nourished throughout the day.
I love that the Baby Magic Creamy Baby Oil is hypoallergenic, vegan, vitamin-enhanced and full of good-for-you ingredients like Camellia Oil and Marshmallow Root to calm skin and Aloe to replenish moisture. The best Part? It comes in at an affordable price point (you can find it at select Walmart stores and on Walmart.com).
Disney Lullaby Playlist
Truly one of my favorite parts of our day is Lola’s bedtime routine. Around 6:30, we head into Lola’s nursery, turn on her nightlight and turn off the light to signal it’s time to wind down. We turn on the Disney Lullaby Playlist to set a calming & soothing environment as we head into bedtime. It’s seriously the best playlist for bedtime, car rides, plane rides – we love it. It’s perfectly curated to help baby drift off to sleep and includes instrumentals and renditions of all of your Disney favorites. You can find the Disney Lullaby Playlist on all streaming platforms.
Fat Brain Toys
Brandon and I have both bene pretty intentional about the toys we give to Lola. We love how great she is at independent play and want to make sure we’re also giving her toys that support her development. We got in a few new Fat Brain Toys and Lola has been loving them. Not only is the company family run but it all started from the imagination of an amazing 10 year boy who struggled to find his favorite toys online. He suggested to his dad to start their own online store so they could sell his favorite toy themselves…and the rest was history!
Two of the toys we’ve be keeping in rotation lately: InnyBin and Dimpl Billow & Bright. InnyBin is this really cool innovative shape-sorting box created to help Lola learn her shapes in a frustration free way while also encouraging fine motor skills and experimentation. BPA free and safe so it’s a win win. The Dimpl Billow & Bright is another favorite containing two sensory toys with silicone bubbles, bright colors and a mirror. Encouraging sensory exploration, fine motor skills and cause & effect learning, this is one we definitely plan to use over the next several months.
Stonz Baby Shoes
I can’t believe one of these days we’ll have a little walker – so wild to think about. In the meantime, you better believe my girl still gets to wear cute shoes to complete her favorite outfits – I can’t help myself okay! One of our favorite comfy brands is Stonz. I just love their baby shoes so much. We recently got in a pair of the Linden shoes and they are just so stinking cute. The moccasin style slippers go on easy, and stay on. The Linden Shoe features an elastic cuff that opens extra-wide and will stay in place through all the crawling which is KEEY because Lola is starting to scoot and wiggle and rock. So cute.
First Fresh Foods Blender & Steamer
Can’t believe we have a baby that’s eating actual food. Like she was just a BABBBBBYYY baby. Still a baby but you know what I mean. We’ve been doing Baby Led Weaning for about 2 months now and it’s been quite the journey – anything to make it a little easier is always welcome and you guys know I try to share as much as I can. We’ve bene loving the First Fresh Foods Blender & Steamer to make our own foods for Lola. The Multi-Function Baby Food Maker steams and blends foods or choose the Steam Only option to soften larger pieces for easier eating. We personally use both – sometimes I like making her more of. puree and sometimes I like giving her bigger solid pieces to work on motor skills and textures. It’s so easy to use and easy to clean so it make the entire process of the whole feeding journey that much more fun and hassle free.
NURSH Silicone Pouch Bottle
We’re loving our solids journey but my girl is still getting most of her nutrients from formula which means we still need great bottle (especially now that she’s starting to try and feed herself/hold the bottle on her own). I absolutely love the NURSH Silicone Pouch Bottles. The innovative silicone pouch collapses as she drinks, cutting down on the ingestion of air to decrease painful gas, reflux, colic and burps – all things we want to limit as much as possible. The silicone is made without BPA or PVC. I also love that the the bottle can be used as a snack cup when a NURSH lid is used.
BOON ARC Modular Drying Rack
I mean have you seen a more chic drying rack? So sleek and you can use it to dry everything from baby bottles to wine glasses – in this house, we have lots 🙂 The 7 Prong Rack provides plenty of space to keep all the things steady as they dry. The quick drain cup is great for cutlery, straws and pacifiers while the cup’s drainage holes get rid of excess water. It’s modular and dishwasher safe which is key for keeping things simple. Just so many reasons to love this drying rack – and I honestly still can’t get over how #aesthetic it is.
