New Mom & Baby Wish List

Now that I’m a new Mom there are still a few items on my wish list for Annabelle and I. Now these aren’t totally necessary, but I’ve been thinking about getting them for a while so I thought I’d share!:)

Lily Jade Diaper Bag: After searching through your diaper bag suggestions in my last pregnancy update video, I’ve fallen in love with this style! I like that it’s real leather, still looks like a purse, and will go with all my outfits.

 Baby K’tan: After watching so many vlogs with new Mothers, I’ve realized how useful baby wearing is so I can’t wait to try out a baby wrap to get household chores done quicker.

Belly Bandit: I’m still not 100% on getting a tummy wrap for postpartum, but so many Moms swear by them so I might just give it a chance to hold everything together and tighten up my stomach after birth.

Mommy Hook: I love how you can hook your purse to your stroller for easy access!

 Nike Free Runs: I’ve been wanting these for a while and although you don’t have to be a new Mom to warrant this purchase I feel like they are the perfect “Mom shoe” 😉

Nursing Cover: I’ll definitely be needing this for breastfeeding in public:)

 Pink Nursing Bra | Coral Nursing Bra: I’ve only purchased a few stretchy nursing bras and they aren’t the cutest, so I loved the lace detail on these ones to make me feel more feminine after giving birth!

 Zella Leggings | Grey Zella Leggings: Almost all my friends have these leggings and swear by them. I’m so excited to not have to wear maternity leggings/jeans anymore!

Red Coat | White Dress Set | Sequined Tulle Dress | Gingham Headband | Pink Uggs: I adore little girls/babies in clothing that look like they are for adults! I know that may sound strange and although an adult women wouldn’t necessarily wear a pink tulle dress, putting babies in peacoats, headbands, tiny shoes, and skirts is so so cute! I love when they are out and about in anything but a traditional onesie, although she has been living in onesies when we are at home most of the time!

Teething Giraffe: Almost every Mom has one of these for a reason! They seem to be the best teething toy for babies on the market.

Bunny Soother Blanket: I love the little plush blankets with animals attached!

Bath Wrap: These aren’t totally necessary, but I love how they have a tiny hood perfect for bundling up after a warm bath.

    All the baby girl stuff is sooo ? Also I love that little portable high chair, so much more compact than a big one. I wish we’d gotten that for our apartment!

    As for the mom stuff, I’ll comment on the belly bandit because I think it was super helpful and comfortable, especially for C section patients. It just makes your stomach feel less lumpy as you move around and restrains you from stretching too suddenly or quickly which might hurt your stitches. I highly recommend it. Also I am curious about the Lily jade bag. I don’t think it’s worth the price tag and just see it as an IG trend lol. But hey, to each their own! And also babywearing was something I never really needed to do, I only ended up using the carrier when taking him out for walks around the neighborhood and I didn’t wanna lug the stroller. Otherwise my family isn’t too big on it because it’s just setting yourself up to a habit which they won’t nap well unless you’re there 🙂 it’s sweet in the beginning but trust me, makes it so much harder for yourself down the road!

    I love the diaper bag, super cute! Also I can’t wait until Annabelle can fit into more clothes so we can see all of the adorable outfits you have for her! Are you planning on having any matching outfits?? That would be too cute!

    Didn’t you buy those Nikes but then return them? LOL should have kept them, so cute! I also LOVE that diaper bag. If you get it, you should do a “what’s in my diaper bag” post & video. Motherhood looks SO good on you girl! <3

    Hey – I just wanted to say hi, I’ve discovered your blog and YouTube and love it

    I have a 12 week old and a six year old so been enjoying all the baby posts

    I use the sling to get stuff done too as my baby just wants to be held. I really don’t think you can spoil a newborn or get them in a bad habit. Do what feels right for you – you are doing a great job 🙂

    Just to let you know I live in Guernsey which is a tiny island near France, just thought you might like knowing how far and wide your viewers are ha

    Take care
