I can’t believe I’m less than 2 weeks away from meeting my precious baby boy! I’ve been busy behind the scenes preparing for his arrival and finding all the cute things! Since this is my second rodeo — I feel a bit more experienced this time around on what we’ll actually use. I thought it would be a fun idea to showcase some of my current baby favorites, and an easy baby shower gift idea! Below, I’m sharing some products that look darling in a new baby gift basket! Perfect for a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th time mama and beyond!
ADEN + ANAIS™ SNUGGLE KNIT COLLECTION
I used aden + anais™ since day one with Harlow, and it’s one of my favorite baby brands ever. Their new snuggle knit collection is everything! It has the softest fabric to help keep baby cozy wherever they are. It’s easy to care for and machine washable which is a must! The set includes a knotted gown, swaddle blanket, top-knot baby hat, and a bandana bib. I’m obsessed with the navy stripe (the one shown below) but the rosettes and heather grey are just as darling!
Don’t forget to add a matching snuggle knit lovey! I mean, feels like a cloud! Great for newborns or toddlers and the cutest addition to nap time. Seriously, any mama will go crazy for the buttery soft feel! Snuggle city!
BUTT PASTE MAXIMUM STRENGTH TUBE FROM BOUDREAUX’S
Another newborn favorite (as seen in my baby registry must haves list) is the Boudreaux’s Maximum Strength Butt Paste. This stuff is a miracle worker! It provides the thickets barrier of protection and is Pediatrician recommended. I still use this with Harlow if her skin is looking irritated. Quick note: use this every time baby poops — it will help sooth, and keep a diaper rash from appearing. It’s one of my baby favorites for sure!
LIL’ SQUISH JELLYFISH SENSORY RATTLE + TEETHING TOY FROM BABY BANANA
Love that this toy is an adorable sensory rattle and teething toy in one. The teething phase comes quickly, and this mama needs to be prepared! It also looks darling in a gift basket (the colors are so cute!) The tentacle loops make it easy to hold, and the squishy head has lots of fun textures for little mouths to explore. Feels so good on their little gums. It also promotes hand-eye coordination which helps development. PS: Available on Amazon!
TINKLE CRINKLE ACTIVITY BALL AND TINKLE CRINKLE CATERPILLAR FROM GUND
A couple more toys to seal the deal! The Tinkle Crinkle Activity ball from GUND is a must-have for exploring little babes. The ball features 3-D cut-outs, different textured fabrics and multicolored ribbons for sensory-stimulating play. Anything to keep a new baby busy while mama gets things done! The Tinkle Crinkle Caterpillar is just darling and features so many fun surprises. Squeaker, crinkle, rattle and fun textures to promote sensory stimulating play. Toys from GUND make some of my favorite baby gifts — they have award winning plush toys that will stay in your family for years.
BABY BALM AND BABY LOTION FROM PIPETTE FEATURED IN GOOD HOUSEKEEPING
This is a new find for me! I just couldn’t resist the adorable packaging. Looks so chic on any changing table! The Pipette baby balm is nourishing, hydrating and filled with plant-derived ingredients to comfort the most sensitive skin. The baby lotion is lightweight, and long lasting. I love that it actually helps to increase and retain moisture levels since their skin is so incredibly fragile.
PS: Pipette Baby was also featured in Good Housekeeping (one of my faves!) so be sure to check-out their feature in the November 2019 issue on page 49! Love supporting small brands!
