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!

This post is sponsored by Basic Invite. All thoughts are my own.

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.

Acure Organics Baby Care Giveaway

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!

I Love My Boon CARE for Baby!

I was given the Boon CARE Health & Grooming Kit as part of a sponsored post. I instantly fell in love with this product! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It has been 5 years since I have had a newborn, so these past six weeks have been both rewarding and challenging as I remember all of the things newborns need and do! I have been blown away by the incredible products that I have discovered since the last time I had a baby. I got rid of a lot of old things and purchased new products that would be better this time. One thing I really wanted was a kit that would give me the different hygiene and care tools I would need for a baby. That is why I instantly fell in love with Boon CARE!

What to Pack in a Hospital Bag

When I shared Zoey’s birth story, I mentioned that one of the things that made her delivery so much different than my experience the first time was just how much more prepared I was this second time around. One major difference was the fact that I had a hospital bag packed this time and I didn’t have to rely on my dad digging through my house, looking for the thrown together list I had made while I was in labor the first time! There were a lot of things I wish I would have known to bring my first time and I was really happy with everything I packed in my hospital bag the second time, so I wanted to share! Here is what to pack in a hospital bag…

It is hard to believe that Zoey joined our family a month ago. It has been a whirlwind of a month with very little sleep, but a lot of joy.
