baby must-have items
so I have been doing this mom thing for a little over 3 years now. I am definitely not a pro by any means, but I have come to find that certain products just make my life easier. my husband's schedule puts him out of the house for about 14+ hours each work day, so the smoother my day runs, the better.
we all know it's trial and error when it comes to motherhood, so I would love to hear what items work for you and your family! let's jump into mine:
baby wearing has become a staple for me, even when Mila was small. on the days when I am chasing a toddler, I can wear Lucy .. and almost guarantee she will be sleeping in less than 5 minutes.
this thing was a life saver. I was never a fan of high-chairs until Mila was older, so this was perfect. you can attach it to a regular chair (space saver!), or keep it on the counter (it has grips on the bottom). it also folds flat, making it really easy for travel. the tray attaches on & off super easy. this was where Mila, and now Lucy, like to spend most of their time.
MULTI USE COVER
not only do these look gorgeous, but they are so practical. I use to have individual items for Mila, but now they make these amazing covers that are a life saver. they stretch over your car seat, can be used as a nursing cover, shopping cart cover (because, germs), a blanket, or if you want to get fancy - a scarf. super easy to throw in your diaper bag, or keep in the car!
mine is no longer available, but here is a similar one
when I had gotten my Louis Vuitton GM a few years back, the goal was the use it as a diaper bag when the time came. but I noticed (once I became an actual mom) that I needed a bag with compartments. this organizing insert is heaven! it fits perfect in my GM and makes it super simple to find the things I need quickly, without ripping my bag apart.
my husband has mixed reviews on this, but I love it. with Mila, we had a plastic tub that you could put in the sink, or even the regular tub. it was nice, but I couldn't image it being comfortable, plus it was bulky - making it hard to store. enter the Bloom Bath. super cozy, can be put in the sink or tub, and has a hook on the back to hang once you're done. the best part? just pop in the washer/drying whenever you need to!
this motherhood gig is hard enough as it is, so thanks for checking out my picks for making life a little easier!
