Hey Everyone! This post is for any new mom or a new mom to be. I am a two time mom to two girls and I've realized what products work for newborns and into their toddler years. I decided to post about this, for so many questions I have received and I figured it would be helpful if I could make a blogpost about it so you can find it and look back to it! This is truly for the moms or dads out there and you find yourself frustrated and don't know what to decide on which brand to get.
I truly hope this gives you some insight on the products that I have used on my kids and that includes trying these products on myself.
Here you go, Enjoy, XO!
WOW! This cream is mind blowing! This product it self is the best cream if I don’t say so myself. It works so great, that I used it on myself when I had a rash and wow I was so impressed! I was like if this works great for adults it will definitely work great on my kids. (Literally I did use it!) I love the smell and I love that it definitely soothes diaper rash and gets rid of it really quick!
2. Cerave Moisturizing Cream
This cream is awesome! It is so moisturizing and amazing that I’ve used it for my dry skin, especially when I shave. I love it because there is no smell and it moisturizes so well that my kids love it too. Its not sticky or too heavy to the skin. A must try.
3. Baby Vicks Vapor rub
This product is the best for any kind of stuffy nose or congested chest. I love it because I have used this growing up and it a staple in any spanish family. I knew when you felt sick or under the weather this always helped. I have used this on my kiddos and they know that this helps them feel good. I love the smell so much and I love to rub it on their chest and back and sometimes on their little feet.
4. Pampers Sensitive Wipes
I absolutely love these wipes so much! They don't irritate the skin of my kiddos and I love how happy my kids are when I wipe them. There isn’t much smell either and I love that they make you feel so so clean.
5. Disposable Change Mats
I actually stumbled upon these change pads when I was looking for baby bottles and I couldn't believe how they are life changing! Lets be real... all kiddos pee when you change them at least once or twice if you are my husband - LOL! I was sick of having to wash the change pad so many times and then I found these I was like thank you LAWWD! I love that they are super absorbent and the bottom part is like solid and leak proof and any pee doesn't leak thru.
6. Playful Peanut Wrap
I love supporting local brands in Winnipeg and Playful Peanut has been one of my absolute favourites. I found these wraps and I was like why didn’t I think of that! I love these so much, I basically have bought all my friends who are mommy’s this wrap because it is truly perfect!
7. Travel Change Mat Kit
This was one of the best hand me downs Ive ever gotten! My friend who was done having kids was getting rid of her stuff and gave me this and I had no idea what it was and I couldn’t be happier. This is the perfect thing to use when you are taking your little one out to the mall or a friends house. Since not everyone has a change mat, its the perfect barrier for unclean surfaces. Everyone should have one!
8. Old Dresser
I have found that using my old dresser as a change table has worked out so well! I figured that change tables are so expensive and why spend money when you can just reuse an old dresser changing their bums and the older the dresser the better because they are so sturdy and perfect for baby when changing a babies bum
9. 3 in 1 CRIB
Using a crib instead of using a basinet is worth it! They can grow up in it and I love that it can convert into a daybed for when they progress into toddler life. I love cribs and I knew that I wouldn’t buy a bassinet because as people say it, babies change and grow so so fast! The amount of time that they are in a bassinet is barely 3 months if your baby eats a lot etc. The 3 in 1 cribs are my favourite. They can be used up until 2 years. Thats insanely awesome!
10. Diaper Genie
This product is awesome! Lets keep it 100! This container holds a lot of diapers WOW! I couldn’t believe the amount of diapers and that alone the amount of trash bags there are in those tiny containers. I haven’t found any other diaper source then the diaper genie. Its a must have!
