9 Essentials You Forgot In Your Diaper Bag

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 have 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 harder 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.…

12 Designer Diaper Bags for Under $100

As a mom of three, 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…

5 Signs Both Mama + Baby Need Probiotics This post is sponsored by LoveBugs Probiotics, a product I love. Of course all opinions are my own. Your gut plays an important role in your health, and baby’s health, yet it can often be overlooked. Breastfeeding mothers and breastfed babies benefit greatly from a healthy gut. The gut and brain have a symbiotic relationship, and I’ve learned from personal experience with IBS the impact your gut can have on your emotional and mental state. For me, it seemed that stress affected my gut, and my gut issues affected my stress levels. Because of this, I did a lot of research on the gut, and I found this article and this book to be one of the best resources for fully understanding how your gut is directly connected to your brain. In this day and age, with stress, sugar, processed chemicals, lack…
