Maternity & Baby Favorites

All parents and children find their favorite items throughout pregnancy and once the baby is born.  The items below are ones that we have loved and recommend! I will link to shops where able...


These are my go-to's in early pregnancy so that you can continue to wear regular pants unbuttoned, and also I used them post-partem in that transitional phase when those pre-pregnancy pants almost fit back on.

The Providence collection from Sorelle has exceeded my expectations with furniture! We have had this set for over two years and it does not have so much as a scratch on it.

There are an incredible amount of options and pieces when looking into nursery furniture and they price all over the spectrum.  We wanted to purchase a quality set of furniture because we wanted to be able to use it for multiple children, and still maintain a reasonable budget.  Since we were purchasing a convertible crib, I wanted it to be something that actually stood the test of time so that we would be able to and want to use for 12+ years.  The bedroom that we used as a nursery in our first home was itty bitty--only 9ft x 9.5ft.  We purchased the Convertible Crib, Full Size Bed Rails (for future use), and Double Dresser which also worked as changing table.     It is always recommended to purchase any rails needed for future use at the same time as the crib to avoid having trouble with hard to find or discontinued items years down the road.  

The only piece we never bought but could be useful in the future is the nightstand, but for the price we figured we could purchase something that will match close enough for less when it is needed.


Built Brand Go-Go Tote diaper bag.  I bought this through Zulily and loved it for 2 years until it started having some threads loosen and was a little bit too worn.  The size, material and capacity are fantastic.

I posted about these items below before Ryleigh was even born, but every single item in this graphic has become a favorite of ours that I would highly recommend to other mommas!
1. Fisher Price Rock and Play from the My Little collection
2. Britax B-Agile/B-Safe Travel System 
3. Fisher Price Kick and Play Piano Gym
 4. Fisher Price Deluxe Monkey Bouncer (discontinued)  Similar Here
5. Baby Einstein Activity Jumper
6. Graco Pack n' Play with Reversible Napper and Changer

These items below were some of our favorite 'baby care' items that stood the test of time...
1.  Boon Squirt Spoon  (essential for on-the-go feeding and I think the best design on the market for easy cleaning!)
2.  Boon Pulp Silicone Feeder is great for teething
3.  Summer Infant Contoured Changing Pad
4.  Aquatopia Safety Bath Thermometer
5.  Graco Sweet Slumber Sound Machine with Nightlight and MP3 plug-in
