It is Wednesday already! This week seems to be flying by, doesn’t it? Today we have a wise mama sharing her favorite baby products for her daughter Elenaor, Nellie for short (how cute is that name?!?). Amanda has some really great choices and I especially love her crib but what I love most of all is her beyond adorable little lady. Without further ado, here is Amanda and Nellie! A BIG thank you to Amanda and if you are interested in having your favorite products featured, email me and I will give you more details (it is easy, I promise)!
I am a first time mom to, Eleanor (Nellie), a sweet little 6 1/2 month old girl who makes me smile and my heart melt every time I look at her. We live in suburban Pennsylvania in a house with limited storage so I wanted to find things that would be useful and wouldn’t take over my house. I now look around and see that our house has been invaded by toys, books, blankets and everything baby. And I don’t mind it at all!
I tried to do a lot of research (blogs, books, articles- thanks to the wise baby for all of the product reviews!) as I was buying items for Nellie. I have been thinking about my favorite baby products and in the end I am surprised with the ones that have stood the test of time (6 months) and Nellie.
JJ Cole Bundle Me
The bundle me has been perfect for this cold winter. It keeps Nellie toasty warm when we are out and about. It has washed well and couldn’t be easier.
Land of Nod Andersen Crib
Our crib has been great- I really like the look of it and it is super sturdy. Nellie is the first grandchild on both sides of our family so we wanted a crib that we could share with future cousins and siblings.
Medela Manual Breastpump
I have mixed feelings about my electric pump but I love this manual pump. It has been very useful and saved the day on more than one occasion.
The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
This book is a great reference for breastfeeding. It’s very informative and reassuring.
HALO Swaddle Sleep Sacks
As a newborn, Nellie had a terrible habit of scratching her face while slept. The swaddle sleep sack solved the problem immediately.
Fisher Price Swing
The swing has been great for Nellie (and for us). It’s the perfect place for a nap or just to hang out. This model takes up some floorspace but it’s worth it.
I love our once a month photo shoots. It’s a struggle to find a singular image so I generally take 10. These stickers help me stay organized and remember to take the photos!
I love this weekly series for alot of reasons but most of all, seeing what works for other moms. Nellie is lucky to have such a wise mama in Amanda – thanks again for sharing Amanda! If you’d like to share your favorite products, email me for more info!
