Double Stroller Fun with Evenflo

Thank you to Evenflo for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.

I was so excited to partner with Evenflo on their Minno Twin Double Stroller. Remi hates her car seat, so I was on the hunt for a functional double stroller. What I liked about this Evenflo stroller, is that the girls could be side by side, so Saylor could help Remi, and Remi could see her. I was also looking for something that would be lightweight and easy to fold up. Ain’t nobody got time to lug a big, chunky stroller around with 2 kids.

Olive Green Goodness

Happy Thursday, everyone! This week has been so long and very eventful, I am glad it is almost over. We decided to buy a new couch, sell our old one and a couple of chairs, have a backsplash put up & a new light fixture in our dining room…all spur of the moment decisions, and all while Remi has been not sleeping and fussy. I’m starting to wonder if she is a little colicky, but that is a post for another day.

The weather has been SO hot and humid here lately, so honestly I haven’t been going out much! It doesn’t help that Remi hates her carseat, and I don’t shower 50% of the time…haha #momlife. When it isn’t too hot, we like to go on a little walk around the neighborhood. I actually think Remi enjoys the warm weather and that it relaxes her.

Safe Sleep with Halo

Does anyone else’s kid love to be swaddled? Remi will not sleep without being all wrapped up tight. Otherwise her arms always flail around and she’ll wake herself up, it is pretty funny. ┬áSaylor never liked being swaddled, so I have been on the hunt for the perfect swaddle that keeps Remi tight and that she can’t escape out of!

What I love about this Halo Sleepsack Swaddle is that you can swaddle them 3 different ways. As your baby grows, so does this swaddle. It is a soft, breathable material and comes in super cute patterns. I also love that it zips from the bottom up, so you don’t have to unswaddle them completely for diaper changes! I appreciate that Halo is passionate about Safe Sleep situations, and tries to educate us. Their swaddles are made so our babes don’t need any extra blankets…it really gives me peace of mind that Remi is comfortable, warm enough, and not needing anything extra! We need to do our very best to keep our littles safe, and that can start from where and how they sleep. You can find out more about sleep safety HERE.

Nursing Faves with Bamboobies

I have talked about my love for Bamboobies before, and now that I have been nursing for a month, I’m here to tell you my favorites products and why! I am blessed that nursing has come easy for me, but really great products make it even easier. Since the hospital, I have lived, and I mean lived 24/7, in these nursing tanks. They are soft, so comfortable (not too tight or too loose), and the perfect amount of support. I don’t want to put anything else on.

Their nursing pads are also my favorite. The reusable ones are SO SOFT and “cutesy”, not that it matters, but it helps! And the disposable ones are the perfect size and don’t get all gross after 2 seconds.

As Seen On Shark Tank…Tranquilo Mat!

Shark Tank products are just my favorite. Especially baby gear! When I saw the episode with Tranquilo Mat, I knew I had to have it! The Tranquilo Mat is a soothing mat that mimics the sounds and motions of a mother’s womb. So cool and innovative, and USEFUL! There is actual science behind this product, and was invented by a “crying baby” specialist, who saw a need.

 Saylor loved to use the mat before her baby sis came, haha.

 

Remi likes being held and the mat held against her back. It really is soothing and comforting, I wish they came in adult size, haha! I saw on their social media the other day that they are coming out with cute patterned covers (!!!), so be on the look out for those! I highly recommend this mat, especially for our little babes that have trouble adjusting to the outside world!

Momsense

As a new mom again, I’m learning about all sorts of new baby companies. Companies with products I had no idea that I needed. You NEED so much stuff as a Mom! If you are nursing or have nursed before, you understand me when I say that I worry if my baby is getting enough. With Saylor, I took measures to ensure I was (over) producing, because I didn’t want to starve my baby! This time around I understand my body a little bit better, but how are you ever sure that your baby is getting enough?

First Week Favorites

Holy cow I can’t believe it has already been a week since our sweet Remi has joined our family. The days and nights have sort of blurred together, and I’m starting to remember what it is like to function on little to no sleep. But I wouldn’t change her being here for anything! I am so grateful to have had a smooth labor and delivery, and the recovery has been fairly good considering what my body just went through, haha. I’m always hesitant to say I’m doing good, because “good” is a broad term and no one really wants to hear what is going on! One day soon I will sit down and write out my birth story. Until then, here are a few products I have enjoyed using this past week.

{Thank you Jane for sponsoring this post!}

Have you guys heard of jane.com? It is a daily deal site where you can score some really awesome things for such a good price! I’ve been a customer for years, and I’m excited to share what I love about them with you. Jane offers daily deals that run for only 72 hours and can be up to 80% off. I love that they continuously have new products and if you snooze, you lose! I have purchased all sorts of things from them…clothing, stuff for Saylor, bath and home items…you name it, they probably carry it or will at some point. Today Saylor and I spent time outside playing with these little pebble things that grow when you place them in water. I don’t even know what they are called, haha, but I’m sure you know what I am talking about.

New Shoes with Pediped

How fun is it to get new shoes? I remember shoe shopping when I was little, and being so excited to wear my new shoes everywhere. I hope that Saylor feels that way too, and that she always wants to wear cute shoes LOL. It was time to get her a new pair of sandals for summer, and I wanted something that would last and actually support her little feet and be comfortable! Pediped┬áis known for being supremely comfortable, long lasting, and actually cute! I gave Saylor about 4 different pairs to choose from, and she picked the Flex Lynn Gold and I couldn’t have been more happy!
