5 Favorite {Affordable} Baby Products

It seems like everyone I know is pregnant. Okay, maybe that is an overstatement...but seriously - my sister, my sister-in-law (brother's wife), my husband's step-sister and multiple friends. So, in the spirit of 'babies babies babies", I am going to share some of my favorite baby items! They are must haves in my book!



1. Nursing Cover from Udder Covers. I have used a few other nursing covers but these are by far my favorite. I do not always cover, and certainly do not believe that women have to cover (and sometimes baby just will not cooperate!)...but there are times when I am personally more comfortable covering - and I turn to the udder cover. If you hop over to their site and use the promo code "FREE", all you have to pay is $12 for shipping.

(excuse the wrinkled-ness - oops!)


2. Woven Wrap from Li'l Peeper Keepers. I love baby-wearing, and these wraps are absolutely wonderful. I also love supporting other mamas! There are so many ways to wear a woven wrap (and tons of youtube tutorials!). Woven wraps are the most versatile, as they can be worn from infancy through toddlerhood. It will make your life so much easier - especially in those early months or when you need your hands free! Li'l Peeper Keepers wraps are also very affordable, especially in comparison to other popular wraps on the market. This mama carries ring slings and some other products as well - check her out!

 


3. Coconut Oil by Health From the Sun. This is absolutely my FAVORITE product ever. We use coconut oil for everything in our house. But it is wonderfully useful for babies > Diaper rash. Sore nipples. Baby acne. Cradle cap. Eczema. Dry skin. You can use this for all skin problems, rashes, etc. It is all natural, organic, safe...and it lasts forever!

(can you tell it gets a lot of use?!?)


4. Cloth Diapers from Kawaii Baby Diapers. Yes. I am one of those crazy cloth diapering mamas. I am mildly obsessed - but for good reason! They are economical & just darn cute. Kawaii all in one (AIO) pocket diapers come with 2 inserts. I also use cloth wipes (flannel) with a spray bottle (warm water and guess what - coconut oil!). I make my own laundry detergent and we try to hang on the line whenever possible. Order a few and give them a try. My husband and I calculated that within three months, we had recovered our cost and were saving money on diapers! Kawaii is based out of Canada, has quality products and a pretty fast turn around (in comparison to their Asian counterparts). If you spend over $80, shipping is free!

  


5. Hyland's Teething Tablets. These are simply a life saver during the months (& months!) of teething. I have early teethers (my son got his first tooth at 3 months)...and once they start they seem to never stop. Hyland's Teething Tablets are great. They are homeopathic and completely safe for baby - no scary ingredients (like other teething products). You can pick them up at your local pharmacy or supermaket.



*These are my opinions on these products. I did not receive anything in return for my reviews.

The Beatitudes of Motherhood {FREE PRINTABLE}

Blessed is the mom who is so overwhelmed and ready to pull her hair out, that she surrenders her life to God. She knows that she cannot rely upon her own strength.  The Holy Spirit will fill her, she will decrease - allowing God to increase which will bring Glory to His Kingdom.
Blessed is the mom who is grieving for her loved one. The mom who has lost a sweet baby in her womb. The mom who mourns for a child she once held in her arms. The mom who is a widow. The mom who is an orphan. The mom who has said goodbye to a dear friend.  This time of grieving will allow the Great Comforter to wrap her up in His arms and give her rest.  
Blessed is the mom who is comfortable in her own skin, confident in her choices and satisfied with her life. She does not compare herself to the supermodel mom or cast judgement on different parenting styles. She does not boast about herself or her children, she does not seek fortune or fame.  For she is a daughter of the most high King, her worth and inheritance …

"Martyr"hood (A Lesson In Being A Selfless Mom)

"Do I seriously have to do this again?" I thought as I rolled out of bed, stumbling to the door. It was the fifth round of clean-up that night. I stripped the bed (after a momentary "could I just throw a towel on it?"), cleaned up my scared, shaking daughter, remade the bed, and tucked her back in, kissing her and reminding her that the bowl was on the floor if she needed it (in hopes that I could avoid some clean up). I added the dirty sheets to the growing basket on the stairs, and crawled back into bed with a 13 month old who suddenly needed to nurse. Sleep must have overcome me at some point because I startled awake to do it all over again an hour later. 
Have I succeeded in making you feel sorry for me? Have I convinced you of my martyrdom? I am ashamed to say that those were not even the worst thoughts running through my head, and I could honestly recount that story much more pathetically.

It happened the next day. My children were feeling a *little* better,…

God Changed My Mind About Modesty

I was recently sitting in a mall food court with my fifteen month old daughter, as my husband waited in line for the carousel with our older two. As the ride came to a stop, there was a group of young girls riding on horses directly in front of me. I noticed that the one little girl (who was maybe 8 or 9) was wearing very short shorts - as in you could not even tell she was wearing anything when she was sitting on the horse. To make matters worse, when she raised herself up off the horse, her entire bottom was exposed! I cringed and felt sick to my stomach as I peered around at the hundreds of people in the busy mall food court who may have just witnessed it as well. The little girl adjusted her shorts and went on her way, but I couldn't shake the sick feeling I had - the thought that someone in the mall could have enjoyed seeing that little girl like that...

I know that "wardrobe malfunctions" may happen sometimes. Even when dressed modestly, the wind can blow up a ski…
