Hi, beautiful ladies! I hope you’re already having a wonderful 2019. I’m settling in well to my first New Year as a mommy!
Speaking of mommy-hood, today I wanted to share with you some of my favorite products that I use for Monty. These are tried and true products! I hope all you moms out there find this list useful — and for any of you looking for the perfect baby shower gift, this should serve as a helpful reference guide as well!
First up is Dr. Brown’s: I love these bottles! I used another brand after Monty was born, and he immediately had colic problems. I switched to my Dr. Brown’s bottles, and we’ve never had a problem since. They are the best!!!! By the way, you can never have enough bottles. I’ve learned that! =)
Nested Bean: I knew there was a reason I would always see their ads on my social media accounts. . . . When I was waking up 2-4 times a night throughout 2 months of Monty’s life, I knew I had to try something different!
I AM SO GLAD I DID.
I ordered the Nested Bean gown, and within 2-3 nights Monty was sleeping through the night. Not only does the gown comfort your baby with the weight on the front, but it’s also a blanket. So you don’t have to worry about your baby getting smothered at night with blankets =) This has been the best investment! The Nested Bean gown will definitely be my go-to baby shower gift.
Tote Savvy: I shopped for a long time to find a cute diaper bag, and I just could not find one I loved! Plus they’re all so spendy.
Tote Savvy changed everything for me! These are the BEST organizers for your purses — even if you don’t have a baby! I’ve been able to use one of my favorite leather Kate Spade totes with a Tote Savvy organizer for Monty’s diaper bag. It’s worked so nice! I can organize everything and know where it’s all at. This is perfect for those moments when I need to find something and don’t want to make a lot of noise digging through a bag, such as in church! Tote Savvy has been a game-changer for me.
Eliza James Kids
Eliza James Kids: I love the classic look of a monogram. Eliza James is a great store (a part of a family of stores) to purchase quality boutique-style monogram kids clothing. They are so adorable and very traditional. They’re my go-to!

Earth Mama Organics
Earth Mama Organics: I used their products before working with them recently. They have the best post-partum care products! I was so happy to try out their baby products.
Monty had very sensitive skin and would break out in bumps easily with drug store brands, so I was very picky about what I used on him. Earth Mama’s baby wash and lotion smell heavenly! Also, I love their diaper rash cream. It’s reassuring to know the products you are putting on your baby’s skin is organic.

Boppy: The Boppy pillow was a lifesaver when Monty was first born! We could lay him in it and talk to him (though they don’t recommend this!). But Monty was so long and skinny, he
I also love Boppy’s portable high chair! I don’t like the bulkiness of most traditional high chairs. This one connects to any seat you have, and it’s portable!! So we just leave it on one of our bar chairs. Also, I knew that I had to have a shopping cart cover for my baby. The handles at the store are so terrible. I love my Boppy cart cover because it has toys to keep Monty happy as well as compartments for bottles, etc.
Yay for easy
Amazon Cell Phone Holder
Cell Phone Holder: Last but not least is this cell phone holder from Amazon. I just had to include it because it’s come in SO handy for Facetiming long-distance family! Sometimes it really is the little things that make all the difference. =)
So now for the good part: Let me know what your favorite baby products (or baby shower gifts!) are! I’d love to hear about them in the comments.
Until next time,
