Oh, the diaper bag. I’ve had a few now that I am a mom of three boys. I put together a list of nine items I NEEDED at some point but never remembered to pack. This isn’t your usual diaper bag essentials list of diapers, wipes, binkies, and bibs. These are items you will want, that nobody mentions! I get bored of carrying a diaper bag, so I often switch back and forth between purses, backpacks, and diaper bags. It depends on my mood and where we are going. A backpack is often my go-to because I need to be hands-free with my little ones. this post contains affiliate links Packing the diaper bag is always the hardest part. When you are a first-time mom, everything goes. Clothes, extra socks, and shoes, wipes and more wipes, extra bottles, toys, hats, burp clothes, 20 diapers…you know just the whole nursery. Here…

As a mom of two, I’ve been through a few diaper bags. I have even completely boycotted diaper bags for a while because I just wanted to carry a purse. I decided not to pack all the stuff and try to be minimal. Well, all the “stuff” just wound up on the floor of the car and on the way back. I was digging around the car, rather than a diaper bag, which is just too much. We mamas need diaper bags, and we need all the goodies to keep our little ones happy. I still haven’t bit the bullet and purchased one over $100. Because of all the spills, messes, beach trips, and parks, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. So, I’ve shopped lots of bags, and I thought some other mamas out there might appreciate a list of diaper bags that look designer without the designer…

The Holidays are so magical when you have little children. Old movies take on a new light. Simple games, decorations, and songs bring a sense of peace and joy. We’re learning the words to Rudolph right now, and it’s amazing what learning a song does for a little mind. It can also be stressful for moms to put everything together. Get the tree. Put up the decorations. Shop for all the presents. Hide the presents. Re-decorate when the decorations get destroyed. Find a piece of ornament in a child’s mouth….it can be a whirlwind, but I have a fun post that is just for us. These are must-buy items for moms. They aren’t too expensive, and I know at least one of them you will love and bring some sparkle to your holiday soul! Here’s 5 Little Things Holiday List: Mom Edition Milk Frother: You don’t know how this will change…

I’ve been obsessed with strollers in my almost-five years of being a mom. I’ve had joggers, double joggers, umbrella strollers, standard double strollers and more. There’s some information you should know when you are a new mom thinking about which stroller you might want to invest in. I talked about how I forgot an umbrella stroller on my first registry. I’ll go over that here, as well as what each stroller-type is, and the kind I recommend. It’s important that you know all of this because I had no idea, and ended up buying and returning a few strollers. This post contains affiliate links.  First, think about how many babies you are planning on having. I originally chose the BOB Stroller for my first baby. If you are planning on only having one child, this stroller is AMAZING! There is a reason it’s so popular and I loved it, but…

Deciding what to bring to the hospital is actually really fun, in my opinion. I always save packing until the last month or so because my babies come at the very last second on the due date, or late. I always envied the mamas that got to deliver a healthy baby early. The last few months of pregnancy, I’m totally over it. Like, don’t want to be pregnant and looking for any sign of early labor. I try to leave packing the hospital bag for this time period. To help me through the long, last few weeks. I think packing the hospital bag is super fun, and there are some items I’ve brought with me every single time because they are important, and you don’t want to be without them! I’m also reading all about labor in various books and courses. If you are wanting to go natural, I wish…

Mother’s day is obviously one of my favorite holidays. I am a sun-lover, so as Mother’s Day approaches, I’m usually dying to get outside and enjoy some nice weather. I put together a Mother’s day gift-guide that features some items I love, that are perfect for this summer! First, I have Bootay Bag. This could really be used all year, but in the summer you are wearing breezy, fun dresses, where some nice undies are more essential. After all, their hasthag, #undermatters is so true! The reason I love this is because it’s affordable, only $12 a month! I can do that, and who likes to shop for undies with kids? For me, going underwear shopping with three munchkins isn’t really the most appealing. They sent me a pair for March to try, and I loved it! The undies are super cute, comfortable and a surprise in the bag! Then,…
