This post probably contains affiliate links, to items I am in love with, and I am confident you will too! For any health advice I give on nutrition and wieghtloss, make sure you check with your doctor, as I am not a health professional. I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
As a millennial mama, I am just as concerned about function as I am about style. I am focused on minimalism, quality and aesthetic when it comes to baby items. There are some beautiful companies out there now that are the result of millennials pushing for better quality, better function and overall beautiful design. I mean, as millennials we want nothing but the highest standards! Well, I am so excited I’ve scored the internet to find a full list of these items, created by intentional companies to ease the minds of millennial mamas, while still keeping their gear totally instagram-worthy at all times. Here’s the complete list that you must add to your registry. If you haven’t got your registry started yet, the Amazon Baby Registry is awesome because you can get everything there! Who doesn’t shop on Amazon, and they give you $100 towards diapers and wipes!! Can’t go wrong with that.
Let’s meet the amazing products by amazing companies!
Parasol: We love our planet. We love our babies. That’s our promise.
This is a planet-conscious company, with high standards and products, specifically diapers and subscriptions. Here’s what they say about themselves,
Our tribe leader is always hungry for ways to make life an inspiring adventure. We don’t compromise. We are so responsible it hurts! Parasol is an uncompromising adventure through sustainable, à la mode lifestyle. Peep our certifications. We love our animals (Cruelty Free and Vegan by PETA), we save squirrel homes (PEFC Forest Sustainability and Nordic Swan Eco Label), we refuse to use any harmful ingredients in our products. It’s simple.
I love that they are so responsible it hurts, and their products really are pieces of art. These are “the world’s softest diapers,” so of course, as we millennials do, you are paying a bit more for a quality product, but it’s not that much. About $20 more per month if you were to go through Amazon’s diaper subscription. They also have a wipes subscription option too, so you can get everything taken care of, and it will all look so pretty in your diaper.
Wink Naturals: At Wink Naturals we make 100% drug-free products that simplify your life. Because we know how hard it is. It takes a village. We are just like you. Raising a child requires patience, love, discipline, and HUSTLE.
Well doesn’t that sound fabulous? A company that will offer you products that are drug-free, yet very effective. products for teething, sleeping, diaper rash and more. The Llama all-over-body lotion is a very popular item, along with their Bum Balm and Lavendar Chest rub.
Asher and Olivia: Introduce your bundle of joy to the world in affordable luxury and cozy style from Asher and Olivia’s fanciful, heirloom-quality infant and toddler apparel and accessory collections.
You will love shopping this site and adding items to your baby registry. It’s full of high-quality, soft and beautiful baby and toddler clothes that won’t totally break the bank. They also have the cutest twin sets, accessories and blankets you will totally love for boys and girls. Quality and luxury, without the huge price tag.
Baby Booth Box: A monthly themed, baby photo shoot set in a box!
Instagram is my second love, to this blog and Pinterest, so when I found out about this, I couldn’t help but add it to the list. You will be Instagram-ready every month with your new little one! When you subscribe, you get a FREE Milestone blanket!! There’s a gift for mama in every box, in addition to fun photography props and goodies. Super fun, totally affordable, and if you tag and share, you could win free boxes!! Sign up to get your free milestone blanket!

This is for those millennial dads out there. This is high quality, dad equipment. Gear that lasts, performs and is uniquely designed with military-grade materials. Check out this video of their goods, and you’ll fall in love!
And that concludes the awesome list so far! I will be adding more companies as I find them, learn about them, and love them. If I missed a company you love, let me know in the comments, so I can check it out!
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:
“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🏼!
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
