Aden + Anais

12 Apr

Aden + Anais is a business started by Raegan Moya-Jones, she created her own line of Muslin baby wraps, cloths, sheets and more!

Aden + Anais has quickly grown to become a favorite among moms and celebrities and you can understand why Muslin is a wonderful fabric (natural fabrics all trump synthetic ones- especially where babies are concerned). For those of you who can’t afford an Aden + Anais baby wrap its no big deal they’re rather inexpensive and pretty easy to make. I offered below some links on how to make your own, if your not handy I suggest buying your favorite Muslin fabric from the local fabric store or online and then asking other women at your church, school or mommy and me group  for help or pay them to make it for you. For those of you looking to make your own Aden and Anais baby wraps are made of 100 % pure muslin they measure a perfect square 47 ”  by 47 “. Below I suggested an online retailer to find some material as well in case your local fabric store doesn’t have any.

Baby Play Yard

Why are baby play yards great? So many parents debate if they should buy one- let me tell you if you have the extra cash buying a play yard or play pen can be great. If money is tight go ahead and hold off I am betting you can find one at local garage sales or Craigslist just be patient and you will eventually find one real cheap. You can purchase the one I featured above on Amazon. For those of you wondering how much use you’ll get of it then I suggest these uses:

  1. Its great to set up at family & friends houses when visiting whose homes aren’t baby proofed
  2. It lets baby play in a safe space while your cooking family meals
  3. A play yard is great because you can set it up in any room or move around the house as needed
  4. Also, allows you to have time to sit with a book while baby plays in your living/family room together
  5. Helps Mommy Bloggers to type while baby is in the same room with her and still has an ability to see baby being safe and having fun

Having fun while getting clean in the tub can be great fun for baby, so today I am sharing a few ways to keep baby safe while getting clean and which will make any mom or dad happy. Here are 2 inexpensive items to use when your bathing baby.

 

Spout Cover  – Spout covers help protect baby from the hard metal spout

Drain Stopper – Helps keep baby’s fingers safe and keeps water sealed from draining

Another suggestion is to get a safety slip resistant mat for both inside & outside the bath, approximately 120 children 4 and under each day are hurt in bathing related accidents.

 

Baby Feeding

3 Mar

Are you looking for feeding items for your baby to make life a little simpler. For those of you looking for some spoons for baby’s food look no further than these Munchkin spoons they’re BPA free and top rack dishwasher safe. They come in 6 and 12 packs on Amazon.

Also consider getting plenty of bibs that way you can just toss them in the laundry and not worry about baby’s clothes getting dirty, but here you can look at the BabyJorn Bib (these bibs are good for feeding times because it won’t seep through and mess up baby’s clothes).

glass baby food containers (before you ask me why I shared these glass ones) the same reason I prefer glass food containers for adults (dishwasher safe, BPA free, don’t trap odors, etc). These are a 4 pack and come in a variety of colors and are great for making food and freezing ahead time.

Dry / Wet Bags

1 Mar

Today, I am discussing the many uses for a dry / wet bag with little ones. Feel free to use these bags for any other uses you come across and share them with us.

  • Wet wipes
  • Dirty Diapers
  • Children’s swim suit
  • Traveling with kids clothes
  • I also like this for keeping liquids in the baby’s diaper bag separate from other items (sanitizer, lotion, baby’s lotion, etc.)

I have suggested 2 bags below both of which are easily found on Amazon.

Perfect First Aid Bag

18 Feb

When you have children it’s important to make sure you always have on hand all the things necessary for when an emergency comes up. You need a first aid kit that is going to have everything in 1 place, making it less stressful for you when baby has a boo-boo. Also, do your best to keep calm, (at least in front of your child)  this is hard because your little one means the world to you, and seeing them hurt is awful but if your panicky or stressed out it will make your child more scared and worried.

Also consider taking the time to get CPR certified. If your looking for the perfect First Aid Kit find it here on Lesley Carter.

Supporting baby’s head and body when very young is extremely important, you don’t want anything to cause discomfort to your bundle, but you also don’t want anything to compromise the baby’s safety. The Kiddopotamus Snuzzler Head & Body Support is a wonderful thing to have.

  • You can use it in a car seat, baby stroller, or baby swing
  • Has two reversible sides for warm / cold weather
  • You only need to buy this once and then use it with all your children (its one of the items I love because you can use with either gender and will only be a 1 time purchase – saving you some money)
