It’s Real Mom Wednesday! Today, we have sweet as can be Rosie mama to Benjamin sharing her fabulous and stylish favorites with us today. Rosie has some great picks for older children and being a gear minimalist her list of full of top of the line products. Rosie also has her own adorable blog, Benjamin Row – be sure to stop by and check it out! And if you’d like to share your favorites with us – email me for the deets. It is really easy(and fun)!
Hi! I’m Rosie-a first time mama to my darling 16 month old boy, Benjamin. We, along with my husband, currently live in a small condo just outside Los Angeles. I enjoy a good hike, indulging in home cooked meals, staycations, and capturing all of Ben’s special moments by way of photos and blogging. Due to limited space and always being on the go, I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to baby products. This is a list of my absolute must haves! The Wise Baby is such a special blog to me and I am beyond excited to share this list with other mom’s.
1. Prince Lionheart Booster POD
Such an awesome booster to use at home or on the go. It’s fuss free and can be stored just about anywhere at home. It doesn’t take up too much space in the trunk or in the car so we often take it with us when going out or when we visit friends and family.
2 – Honest Company Diapers
These diapers are eco friendly, soft and gentle on our boy, AND they come in a variety of fun patterns.
3 – Tiny Toms
They’re easy to slip on and great for play time at home or to go out in. They mold really nicely to wide feet which is a big bonus. Great for both boys and girls.
4 – Skip Hop Zoo Tableware (we have the puppy and owl sets)
I love these plates and bowls. Not only are they crazy cute but they’re also durable and suit toddler portions perfectly.
5 – Johnson’s Hand & Face Wipes
We use these daily. They’re a must have for a quick clean up after meal time.
6 – J J Cole Snap Bibs
The best bibs! I tried several different bibs before finding this set and they are my favorite by far. They’re sturdy and can be wiped down by hand or in the washing machine. They come with a catch tray and are easily adjustable. I’ve had one set of three in rotation for the past 6 months and they are still in great shape.
7 – Britax B-Agile Stroller
This is a really, really great stroller. It’s light, opens and folds easily, and is easy to clean. It isn’t too bulky and lays flat when folded so it doesn’t take up too much storage space at home and fits well in our car.
8 – Kid o Go Car
Ben adores this car. The handle is the perfect fit for his little hands. I bought it when he was around 8 months old and he didn’t really take to it until right around his 1st birthday. He still really enjoys scooting it around every morning while mom and dad get ready for work.
9 – Zoli Sumo Snack Stack
We take this just about everywhere we go. It’s great for packing an assortment of snacks. It’s stackable so you can choose how many containers to carry along with you.
10 – Pajamas
Since Ben grew out of his itty bitty onesies, these pajamas have been my go-to’s. They’re stylish, appear to fit comfortably, and come in a short sleep set for the warmer months
Thanks again Rosie and be sure to check out Benjamin Row to keep up with her and sweet Benjamin!
