What We Love: Dr Brown's Baby Products

What We Love: Dr Brown's Baby Products

Hey lovelies, I will be updating you in the next day or so on another pregnancy update now that we are near the end and im over 38 weeks pregnant.  For now I wanted to share with you all about Dr Brown's baby products! I was approached by Dr Brown's to try a few of their items out, as best as I can before our little girl is here, and I was instantly excited to jump on it! We used a few of their bottles with our son and he did great with them.  We tried their Wide neck bottle which is easier to fill and hold and the silicone nipple is also broader based which some babies prefer, i also have the standard Dr Browns bottles in their new pink color for baby girl to try! We were so intrigued by their Deluxe bottle warmer and Deluxe electric bottle sterilizer and how quickly and easily they clean and heat the bottle, we had to try both of those!  Head over to the Dr Brown's website and watch their short video clip on how each work, i promise you'll want to invest in one of these bad boys if you're a working mom like me and need your sitter to be able to have clean bottles readily available as well as get the bottle to the correct temperature for the baby without having to run it under hot sink water or boil a pot of water to heat it.  I love that their breastmilk storage bags hold 6 oz measured right there for you so your husbands or babysitters can easily figure out how much they're feeding the baby. Lastly, I had to try the Gia nursing pillow, this pillow is uniquely shaped so that one end works well for newborns (thick end) and the thin end is best for older babies, it has a broader surface than most nursing pillows which is great because then the baby is well-supported and more comfortable.

^^^This is the easiest way to warm a bottle ive ever seen! The Deluxe Bottle Warmer can heat a bottle or a babys food! Its an easy to use LCD control panel and it can adjust the basket to fit different sized bottles. It shuts off on its own after 10 minutes too, so its safe for us tired mamas!

^^^This is the Deluxe Electric Sterilizer:  It Safely steam sterilizes 6 BOTTLES in 12 MINUTES! Its literally a 1 button operation and has auto shut off when the cycle is complete. ^^^^

^^^It has compartments for not just the bottle base but the nipples and pieces that go inside.^^^

To all of my mommy followers, i know how important it is to find a good bottle that you're baby will take! I would recommend trying these 100%!

Maternity Family Photos, Baby Number Two:

Maternity Family Photos, Baby Number Two:

I have been meaning to share these for a few weeks now, its amazing how my last minute to do list before this little angel arrives just keeps building and building.  My sister (Kelsey Steindler Photography) is an incredible professional photographer and I am truly so blessed by her graciousness! She is so giving of her time away from her family to shoot these sweet memories for us, and i will truly cherish these forever.  I also wanted to say a HUGE thank you to The Bloomin Gypsy for her incredible talent & creating this perfect flower crown for our maternity session. It could not have been more perfect. I wanted to feel feminine and represent all things girly since we are welcoming our first little lady into the home. I am just so grateful for the place the Lord has brought us to in this new season. Truly, we are so happy and at peace right now, its the perfect time to welcome this special little girl into our home.  

This post is dedicated to our babies, Cash and little miss that will be here in less than 3 weeks.  We love you with every part of our being and thank God for you every day. You both have touched our hearts and lives in ways we could never explain. You are our angels, you encourage us in our walk with the Lord daily and have brought so much joy to our home.  Daddy and I are closer today than ever before and more in love each day as we raise you little ones together as a team.  We are so ready to meet you sweet girl, and although it will be a big adjustment for us all, I know your brother is going to be so sweet and gentle with you because thats who he is and we cant wait for him to meet you. I am already melting inside thinking about your father becoming a daddy to a little princess, i am counting down the days until we see your sweet angelic face & bring you home with us. Carrying you in my womb has been magical, i will miss you always being with me and am forever grateful for this gift.

What We Love: The Little Linen Company

Im so excited, today is my last day of work before maternity leave! And tomorrow we go on our little staycation babymoon! I cant tell you how much my exhausted body is craving some R&R.  It'll be our first time away from our little guy (hes done sleep overs at his Mimi and Papas house 3 times now but we hung with him all day before taking him over there, so this will be basically almost 2 full days away from him and im nervous for how ill do, but i know he'll be ok and have tons of fun!).

Any who, before I go I want to share about The Little Linen Company with you all because they have the cutest selection of swaddle blankies for babies with such fun unique prints. You'll see below they sent us this adorable veggie blanket called "Veg Out"  (Weegoamigo brand), my favorite as you all know are gorgeous florals so i am smitten with this Rose Toile (Little Linen Company) swaddle, and this Weegoamigo 4 pack muslin blanket combo called "Doll's House" is a perfect combo of gorgeous Spring colors.  Check them out for all of your swaddle needs, they also have stroller blankets, bedding, & cute baby towels/wash cloths.
