Mama Must-Haves

Hello there! My name is Kelsey, and I am a new mama! My little man is officially three weeks old today. In these short three weeks, I have already learned so much; and yet still have more to go. I did, however, find some fantastic products that have changed my motherhood game. I thought that I would share these products with you, just in case you are a new mama as well or are just looking for some awesome stuff!

My first Mama Must-Have is an electrical breast pump. This is more for the Mama’s that are breastfeeding and need to let out the extra milk. I love the fact that I don’t have to pump manually. I’m already so tired from being up all night with Julian; I don’t want to add more work that isn’t needed.

My second Mama Must-Have is a Brica Car Mirror. This mirror is magical! I am a working mama and get to take Julian with me. He hates the ride home and cries the entire time. Now all I have to do is turn the mirror on, it sings and has lights that will entertain him the whole drive home. It also comes with a remote so that it can be controlled while I am sitting at a red light. I am so in love!

This awesome thing puts him right to sleep!

While on the working subject, my next Mama Must-Have is the Snuggle Nest. The Snuggle Nest is a portable infant sleeper. I don’t think that I can live without this thing! He gets to sleep comfortably in the Snuggle Nest while Mama works.

He gets to lay comfortably while mama works.

My last Mama Must-Have for this blog post is the Baby Brezza. Let me say; this thing is a Keurig for making baby bottles. It dispenses formula, (however many ounces you need), warms the water, and mixes the water and baby formula for me. I have to do is put the lid on my baby’s bottle. Did I mention that it takes less than 30 seconds to do it all? The Baby Brezza comes in handy, especially for those long sleepless nights.

That brings me to the end of this post! I needed to share all of these products with you; it was killing me. I hope that you enjoyed it!

  • Jammies
  • My honey’s clothes

I also ended up adding our toothbrushes, toothpaste, and deodorant. I realized that I forgot to pack those after writing this blog post. LOL

I am also going to pack a sweater for my honey and the tablet in case he gets bored.

If you are an expecting mama, I hope that this post has helped you somewhat, if not, I hope that you found it interesting.

Top 5 Favorite Maternity Favorites

I am currently in my 6th month of pregnancy, what a long journey this has been. On this journey, I have been through a lot, but I have sound some favorites that have kept me happy during this time. I feel the need to share these products with you just in case you are in the same boat that I am. These favorites are some game-changers; I hope that you enjoy this post. 

  1. Coconut Oil – My skin has been incredibly dry this pregnancy; my son has been sucking all of the moisture from my skin and leaving me with nothing. Coconut oil has saved my skin! It has so many benefits, not only is it a great makeup remover, but it is also an excellent moisturizer.
  2. What To Expect When You’re Expecting– This book has helped me understand the changes that my body has been going through and the growth of my baby.
  3. Adjustable Maternity Pant Extenders– These bad boys have saved me a ton of money. No need to splurge on maternity pants, when these exist.
  4. Anything Sour- Sour skittles, sour belts, just anything sour.
  5. Leggings- They always fit!

All of these products I have been using religiously! I hope that I helped you discover a maternity favorite. If you have any products that you recommend, I would love to try them out! Please leave them in the comments.

Best Cleaning Products + GIVEAWAY

I have spent the majority of my life cleaning. My mom always made me clean, so naturally, I spend about 85% of my life, cleaning my house and doing laundry. I am regularly washing dishes, vacuuming, and running back and forth to the laundry room. It can get pretty exhausting, but that’s my life.

With all of my years of cleaning, I have tried all kinds of different products. Just recently, I came across a new brand that I have been using non-stop. Have you heard of Sapadilla? If you have, you get a high-five from me. If you haven’t, that’s okay; I’m about to share some excellent information with you.

Sapadilla products have plant-based ingredients and have 100% pure essential oil blends. Did I mention that they are also cruelty-free and made in the United States?

Sapadilla carries products from laundry soap and dish soap to countertop and all-purpose cleansers.

Scents:
Grapefruit + Bergamont
Rosemary + Peppermint
Sweet Lavender + Lime

I love the fact that Sapadilla products are super affordable; I don’t want to spend a ton of money on something that I am continuously buying.

Since I love these products, I am giving you a chance to try them out for yourself! I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram, make sure to head that way to enter. Sapadilla and I will be giving away a countertop cleaner, hand soap, and dish soap.

If you are too excited and don’t want to wait for the giveaway, you can head to Sapadilla.com and purchase your cleaning supplies.

I want to thank Sapadilla for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

5 Favorite Walmart Purchases

I have not been this excited to write a blog post in a very long time. Today I was posting a few of my favorite products on my Instagram stories, but then realized that they were all from Walmart. SO I had the best idea to create a blog post for you and leave all of the links so you can get your hands on them as well.

So as you keep reading, you are going to discover my favorite Walmart purchases! I hope that you enjoy this post. I plan on writing a part two and maybe even turn this into a series.

  1. Pioneer Woman Slow Cooker $29.84 Marked Down from $39.99
This bad boy saves me from slaving over the stove in this Bakersfield heat! I love it and use it any chance that I get. There are plenty of crock pot recipes on Pinterest to try out. Follow my crock pot board for inspiration.

2. McCormick Garlic and Herb Black Pepper and Sea Salt $3.74

I use this guy in everything that I cook. It’s soooooo good. Take my word.

3. Stovetop Kettle $19.48 Marked Down from $24.00

She’s Bad. I’m a little old school when it comes to my coffee. I love using a stovetop kettle.

4. Pioneer Woman Knife Set $49.97 Marked Down from $59.97

This isn’t my photo, but I do own this knife set and now can’t live without it. Thank you Pioneer Woman, you are life goals.

5. Better Homes and Gardens Candles $6.97

These candles are amazing! They are super affordable, smell great, and fill up the house. I love the Bath and Bodywork candles, but they can get pretty pricy. At Walmart, I can get four for the price of one. Who doesn’t love a good save?

I hope that this post has inspired you to shop your local Walmart very soon, I love Target, but sometimes you can’t beat Walmart prices. If you have any of these products, let me know what you think of them. Also, I would love more Walmart recommendations.
