Rethink Your Diaper and Wipe Choices!

This post is sponsored by Comforts Brand

When I first became a mom, I had no idea how many diaper and wipe options I would be faced with. It became a little overwhelming sometimes! What really confused me is when one brand would seem to work really well and the next month, it would be failing miserably. I never could find a diaper and wipe brand that I loved. It made me really frustrated because I was only using the name brands that I had grown up seeing commercials for. I thought that those had to be the best options out there. Boy, was I wrong!

Baby Safety Resources

Recently, the Baby Safety Network launched. It is an incredible site about baby safety! It helps bring awareness, information, and discussion, in order to give parents the ability to make informed decisions about their baby. I love that this site exists!

Baby Safety Network

Baby Safety Network is a DOM Family initiative. I am already a huge fan of DOM Family cribs, mattresses, and strollers and I appreciate that they have used their resources to create this very important site. You can find information about sleep, play, or just about any topic that you are looking for some answers on.  [Read more…]

I’m FINALLY getting sleep!

When my 5 year old was a baby, my husband and I were diligent about the sleep program that we can chosen before she was born. She spent 11 days in the NICU and came home with her own little baby schedule that the hospital had created for her. There were definitely some hard nights but once we got her trained, she was an awesome sleeper. Flash forward to present day. My 9 month old has been a completely different experience! She has been a hard baby to train. It doesn’t help that we moved when she was almost 5 months old and have spent the last 4 months in limbo as we travel back and forth to go visit dad until we move again. I would get so discouraged when I would read articles that would claim that a 6 month old should be sleeping mostly through the night and my 6 month old was waking up every 2-3 hours! I was at my breaking point and I needed to find a better way.

Natural Bedtime Baby Bath Soap

I have been a longtime user of traditional baby products, but one day I turned the bottle over and noticed just how many ingredients were in the bedtime baby soap I was using. I wasn’t comfortable using that many ingredients on my baby. I used a variety of different natural products, but discovered that making your own is really easy and way more affordable! For feeding purposes, I use Gerber® Pure® Water to mix infant formula and cereal, because it’s water specifically purified for babies. Gerber® Pure® Water can be found at Walmart, in the water section. Inspired by Gerber® Pure® Water® and its simple and pure qualities, I wanted to also have a simple and pure soap option made specifically for babies so I decided to make my own!

If you have a child in diapers, you probably understand the struggle of keeping all of the diaper gear organized. Diaper storage can be a real problem! Our diapers and wipes were all over the place, leaving the room looking like a cluttered mess all of the time. Thankfully those days are behind us now because we have this fun, modern under the crib diaper organization!

Gorgeous Nursery Inspiration

As we prepare to move once again in the coming months, I can’t help but start to dream about how I want to decorate again. I don’t even know where we will live or what the rooms will be like, yet I am totally decorating in my brain. I blame some of that on the fact that I have been checking out the new additions to the Evolur family. To refresh your memory, Evolur Baby is where I got all of the beautiful furniture for Zoey’s nursery. I am OBSESSED!

Recently, Evolur Baby announced the addition of the Aurora crib in a new Gold Dust finish and I just can’t even  handle how absolutely beautiful it is! It would be perfect for a little princess. To be entirely honest, I want the dressers for myself! I am love with that Gold Dust color and I think it could be paired well with just about anything. Just think about it with navy, magenta, black, or blush pink. I look at it and instantly want to start decorating! [Read more…]

Baby Routine and Scheduling Tips

When I had my first daughter, I was so sleep deprived that there are a lot of memories that seem completely dark and foggy in my brain. Those first few weeks were so hard! Thankfully my husband and I did a lot of research about baby routines and we learned enough that we were finally able to have a good sleeper who was on more of a schedule and it was beautiful! Now that I am starting over with a new baby, I decided to start with those schedules right from the beginning and it has already led to me getting more sleep than I did the first time around. I want to share a few of the baby routine and scheduling tips that I have learned in hopes that it will lead to a happier baby and more sleep for you!

Let me start by saying that I am no parenting expert! What I say isn’t gospel truth by any means, but these are just a few tips that really have worked for me. I feel guilty keeping them to myself if they could help at least one mom out there get a little more peace (and sleep).  [Read more…]

The Cutest Birth Announcements, EVER!

Basic Invite Modern Birth Announcements on www.girllovesglam.com

One thing that I really wanted to do for Zoey and didn’t do with Harper was send out birth announcements. Harper’s NICU stay (and the fact that we were first time parents without a clue) really threw off any plans of doing birth announcements because it just totally slipped our minds once we finally got our baby home.

Pink and Mustard Nursery Design: Zoey’s Nursery Reveal!

I have been so excited about Zoey’s nursery design. I have been planning it for months and I finally was able to finish it so I can share it with all of you! When I found out I was having another little girl, I saw a color design chart with pink, blush, mustard, and charcoal gray. I INSTANTLY fell in love with the color combination and knew I wanted to use those colors in my baby’s nursery.

It is pretty crazy to see articles surfacing that talk about the harmful ingredients found in some of the products that are popular for babies. That is why when I was getting ready for baby number two to make her entrance, I wanted to be prepared with products that weren’t harmful for her! ACURE Baby Care has been my go-to brand for products now and I love them!
