Bennett’s Current Faves

Today, my baby, Bennett, is officially two months old!  Unreal!  I wish I could finish up his two month post today, but we have his check-up with the pediatrician tomorrow, and I want to make sure I have all of his current stats (weight, height, etc…).

So in place of his “two month old” post, I’m going to let you guys know what things Bennett is really liking these days and things that have kept Husband & I sane over the last few weeks!  As most of you know, every now and then I like to update my blog with a few items I’m currently diggin’.  I think that most of you that read along tend to like my suggestions… or you just like seeing what I’m wasting my money on every couple of months ;)

Fisher-Price Rock ‘N Play


A friend of mine was generous enough to allow us to borrow her manual version of this before her baby arrives this fall and boy has it been a sanity saver!  Bennett absolutely loves this thing!  We have the Momaroo which worked when he was brand new to this world, but he quickly moved on from that and now wants to be aggressively rocked in this Rock ‘N Play.  That’s the good thing about the manual version.  You can make it go as fast as the baby likes, where as with the new automatic one that doesn’t require any hands on work.  I blame my mom for his addiction to being rocked to the point of almost causing whiplash… she claims I loved it as a kid, so she decided to try that with Bennett.  Now the kid doesn’t like anything gently rocking him… Anyway, if your baby enjoys being rocked, I highly recommend this product!  Manual or automatic.

Magnificent Baby

So, these are the best thing ever.


These onesies are awesome!  So much easier than dealing with a bunch of snaps!  Bennett wore the one pictured above on Father’s Day and I’m officially a strong supporter of this company!

UPPAbaby 2015 G-Luxe


I recently purchased this stroller for all the upcoming trips we will be making and believe it or not, it really makes Bennett happy!  When he is crying heavily during that infamous “Witching Hour” I just pop him in there, and it soothes him within minutes, if not seconds.  I’m really impressed with how lightweight it is, the ease of folding it up, it’s large sun visor, and it even has some storage underneath!  I’m excited to use it this weekend for it’s real purpose… travel!

My Brest Friend


This is a MUST HAVE on any new mom’s registry.  This has literally saved my sanity on many occasions.  You know, I always say this, but taking care of a baby is truly a full time job.  It is!  In addition to taking care of a baby, breast-feeding is another full time job!  It’s a lot of work!  Not to mention, you are tethered to your baby for however long you choose to do it!  (Especially if your baby is like mine and refuses to take a bottle- this is a more recent thing, he was doing ok with a bottle for a hot minute but now he is refusing)  Anyway, I don’t think I would have made it a week if I didn’t have the My Brest Friend.

I hope these posts will be somewhat helpful for all the mommy’s out there!  I love when products are well worth the investment!

These are a few of my {current} favorite things… All Baby!

Matt & Nat “Raylan” Vegan Leather Diaper Bag


I’m obsessed with my baby/ diaper bag by Matt & Nat.  A friend of mine from college, Molly, over at Fashion Veggie introduced me to this bag on her blog a few months ago, and I couldn’t be more pleased with my purchase.  There are so many compartments in this bag for any & everything your baby could possibly need, comes in six fabulous colors, and it’s made of really good quality vegan leather!  So, no animals were harmed in the making of this bag!  Check out Molly’s blog (highlighted above) for all sorts of vegan fashion!

Budu Baby Satchel


Here’s a product I cannot wait to use!  This Budu baby carrier is so chic (seriously the best looking carrier in my opion).  I’ve tried it on & so far it seems to be very easy to adjust and fit to whomever wants to carry Baby D in it.  Made from natural bamboo fabric, this carrier is so soft and the bamboo liner easily removes to be cleaned.  This Australian company is owned and operated by a  fellow mommy, and the quality of the product is well worth the investment.


Chenille Burp Cloths


When I started packing my hospital bags today, I realized I only had one burp cloth. ONE burp cloth!  So of course, I hop on etsy and find an endless list of the cutest burp cloths.  The ones pictured above are the ones I went with… I may or may not have got some Florida Gator ones for Husband as well ;)
