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!
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.
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!
Happy Wednesday! If you are reading this the day that I am posting it, then it’s currently my birthday and two days away from my due date. Eeekkk.
I felt the need to share with you everything that I have packed in my hospital bag. I love seeing what other people pack, so I thought now would be the perfect time to share my version.
Let’s jump right in!
I love this bag so much; I purchased it from a local company. They create custom, reusable bags. You can find El Saco 72 on Instagram.
So inside I have:
Witch hazel wipes
Travel size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, detangler, and lotion
Frida Mom healing foam
Frida Mom peri bottle
Disposable nursing pads
Tuck’s cooling pads
Dressed to deliver hospital gown
Dressed to deliver robe
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.

That is it for this blog post, I hope that you enjoyed it! I am going to be sharing a “What’s in my diaper bag” post with you soon, so keep a look out for that. Share this post with an expecting mama that you know. Hopefully it can be helpful for them!
A new month is so refreshing to me; I love the chance of starting over. Everything that didn’t happen the month before, I make it a point to make it happen in the new month. February is a shorter month, but there are still enough days in the month to get shit done! In today’s post, I’m going to share all of my goals for this February.
My Goals for February
I have sold all of my bows from my Valentine’s Day collection. For those of you that don’t know, I own an Etsy shop and sell bows for little girls! You can check out my shop at the bottom of this post!
Hit 1,600 blog followers, I am currently at 1,503.
I have finished painting Julian’s crib, and all of his clothes are clean. I am 7 months pregnant and need to get my butt into gear, preparing for Julian’s arrival.
I have reached 4,000 on Instagram; this goal has been a long time coming. I am currently sitting at 3,723. I know that I can get to that 4K mark; I need to be more consistent. If you would like to contribute my following count and help me achieve my goal, you can follow me on Instagram here.
A local company has reached out to me and would like to collaborate. I love working with people from my hometown.
I have sold everything on Poshmark.
I have $1,300 in my savings account. Saving has always been tough for me, but I have kicking ass at it this year and have hit many goals for last month. So here is to February!
What are some of your goals for February?
I can feel that this is going to be a fantastic month! Love is in the air, and so is an auspicious month! I am going to start posting monthly goals from now on; you guys seem to love my goal-oriented posts, along with my boss babe topics. Let me know what you think!
