7 Days of Sensational Finds and a Giveaway?!?

Starting this week, everyday I will talk about 1 or 2 products I love as a new mom.  I’m by no means a mommy pro, but I do have a few items that I love and want to recommend for any new mom. I did so much research and reading on different baby products and the book “The girlfriends’ guide to baby gear” by Vicki Iovine really gave me a realistic ideas of what’s actually necessary. So definitely check that book out if your pregnant and want some pointers. Once the baby comes home you will see what works best for you and them but here’s a couple of things that I swear by, and still use at 4 months old.

:Side Note: Next Sunday I wanted to do a giveaway of some of the products I mention. I’m not sure if anyone would want to enter but if you would want to do please comment below so I can go out this week and purchase them. Then on Sunday I would post all the details. So, comment below if a giveaway is something your into! Now back to what I was talking about!

1. Pampers Swaddler diapers– I read that you should buy a few different brands just incase your Little One (LO) was allergic, but I didn’t know that some diapers just leak for the hell of it. Huggies is one brand for us that just leak! It happens often with boys. We had about 100 that I  had to give to my sister who’s having a baby girl. Pamper Swaddler  also comes in sensitive, and doesn’t have the Dry Max that can cause irritation for some. I just love the swaddlers. They have the wetness indicator on the front of the diaper so if they are wet you can tell with just looking and not have to do the “sniff test”. Pampers has a great program Gifts That Grow, almost all the products you buy have codes located on them.  You can redeem them online for points, once you accumulate different amounts of points you can get free things. I’m all about free things, so I love it. I definitely think Pampers Swaddlers’ are the way to go for boys.

2. The Soothie– This is the best pacifier. When Baby B was in the hospital they gave us this pacifier to use and he’s used it ever since. Of course I went out and brought all the cute pacifiers that say ” MY MOMS HOT”. He just won’t use them. They have a more round shaped nipple. The Soothie is more like mothers’ nipple, slim and long. The colors aren’t fun at all. Blue, Pink, and green is all you’re getting. One cool “accessory” sold for your soothie is a  Wubbanub Plush Pacifier Toys. It’s a Soothie attached to a stuffed animal, which is a genius idea. Baby B is constantly spitting out the pacifier in his sleep, I’ll have to go and put it back in his mouth once he starts to cry. The stuffed animal rests on your LO chest so they can’t lose the paci so easily.  You have to buy it already attached which kind of sucks, but they are just too cute not to have.These two are a must!

Here’s our daily pictures from yesterday (5/28) and today (5/29).

He loved eating ‘nanas! He did so well with them, but made a funny face when the flash went off.

Baby B and his cousin Gia. They kept staring at each other, looking really confused. They’re exactly 4 months apart.

Family Time is My Favorite Time

Today we decided to spend some family time together in Center City. It was a warm day and there’s nothing better than walking around enjoying the city. So we packed the diaper bag and headed out. We went to South St. since it’s full of shops and stuff, but it wasn’t as nice as I remember it to be. I always loved to go there and shop but they didn’t have any good stores. We went to eat at Reading Terminal Market, which is a farmers market with a variety of amazing food.

Bobby had gumbo from a creole restaurant, he said it was delicious. They even had alligator, but he wasn’t ready to try that.

I had the chicken wings from the Amish market. They taste so fresh and homemade. The wings are just seasoned and you can put a homemade hot sauce on them if you want. I just like them dry.  When I saw the banana pudding, I had to try it. Bobby recently introduced me to this spectacular dessert, I love it. This was also sold by the Amish, it was tasty but I think Golden Correll still has the best banana pudding I’ve had.  Daddy and his boy!

Reading Terminal Market has so many different stores. They had a handmade soap and candle store, I didn’t get a chance to check it out but I definitely want to next time we go. There is also a bakery, handmade quilts, fresh fish, fruit and veggies, and tons of great food. It’s the perfect place to go to buy fresh, homemade, locally grown goodies!
 

  Baby B was such a good boy. He loved to look at all the different colors and objects. He sat in his car seat looking up almost the whole time. I love to watch him experience things for the first time. Even though he may not remember we will be able to show him pictures and videos of his childhood. He looks so serious in all of the pictures we took, he’s showing his “mean mug”! After we ate we just walked around. We passed City Hall which is one of the most prettiest buildings Philadelphia has. It has the tiniest details, I can just imagine how much time it took to construct. In every big city there is a china town, this is the entrance to ours. The coloring and detail are beautiful.  We had an amazing day, and we don’t get to have them that often. With a new baby, time goes by so quickly, it’s nice to just take in precious time as a family.

What are some things that you like to do with your family, friends, or special someone?

Score At A Consignment Sale

This past weekend we went to the Lil’ Angels  Consignment Sale and brought some much-needed toys, books, and a couple of sleepers. I volunteered last sale they had, and was able to shop first which was great since they sell out of everything fast. So when I heard they were having their spring sale I decided to volunteer again. They had so many great items clothes, toys, books, strollers, pack n’plays, high chairs, and so much more. Friday evening we backed up B and headed to the sale. We found a couple of toys that light up and make noise which he really loves.

I’m the most excited about the Tiny Love mobile that we scored for $18.00. He loved mobile that went with his bedding set, it cost $45.00 and broke after a week. It was cheaply made and needed to be wound up every 5 minutes. I was searching online for a different one for him and saw some that were pretty awesome. I’m so glad I didn’t just buy the first one I saw, because I saved myself some money. As soon as we got home I ran to put the mobile together. It wasn’t the easiest thing I’ve done, the directions were somewhat confusing. After a good 30 minutes I managed put it together, and B loves it. I knew he would.

Anyway we had a wonderful time finding new things for B. Next time I will probably try to sell some of the things that the baby doesn’t need anymore. So here are some pictures of the thing we scored. All together we spent $45.00, the mobile alone would’ve cost about $30 brand new so I’m happy!

Hope you have a sensational day!
