Hello & Happy Friday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

As of last week or son has officially arrived and is almost 10 days old! After struggling to conceive, 9 months of pregnancy, and then a labor that would just never end, he is finally here and I’m just… still in shock! Having experienced labor and delivery I thought I would share various items that I made sure to have in my hospital bag. While you can bring anything and everything, I really wanted to whittle it down to the bare minimum as you typically don’t utilize half the things you bring. In addition to the items featured, below you’ll find a list of the other items in my bag!

 

 

  • Phone charger
  • Light makeup
  • Prenatal Vitamins
  • Nursing pillow
  • Towel
  • TP
  • Long socks
  • My own hospital gown and pillow cover
  • Slippers

 

 

Did you bring other items? Have you tried any of the brands below? Are there others you loved? I’d love to know!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The idea for Kickee Pants came to me while on bed rest with my second son. I felt that although a clothing company cannot hope to change the world, we could strive to create something that would support those who would celebrate these same ideas by providing clothing that is created and designed with a sense of love for the children who will wear it. My baby boy was a kicker and this kept me awake at night. KicKee Pants became the nickname for my son, and in turn the name of the company we would launch in honor of that reminder that he gave me to appreciate the small moments we would share together.

Basic Footie in Midnight

You will want to snuggle your little one up just a little bit longer in our soft and cozy Footie. Our best selling Footie feature flip paws to cover cold hands and prevent scratching. The inside of the foot is lined with super soft fleece and the bottom is embroidered with our signature spots to prevent slipping. Pair with one of our Swaddling Blankets in coordinating patterns for a great gift!

 

 

 

Natural Star Anise Layette Gown

Your little bug will be snug and cozy in our Layette Gown. Little paws will protect from scratching, and an elastic bottom will help make diaper changes a snap. The matching Knot hat is the cherry atop this sweet set. Fabric Content: 95% Viscose from Bamboo, 5% Spandex

 

Why Kickee Pants: One of the staple pieces a newborn needs, is a gown! Believe it or not there are limitations with organic options. That being said, I was elated to find Kickee Pants. KP designs are all bamboo based and buttery soft! They have everything from 2 pieces to onesies, gowns, and have countless designs with new ones always being said I know I’m not the only one that loves this company, because the designs sell out so fast. If you’re looking for non toxic, buttery soft baby clothes, you’re going to love Kickee Pants! Be sure to check back this fall to see how these hold up!

ORGANIC BUNDLE OF BURPIES

Made with GOTS certified Organic Cotton Muslin.

 

 

 

 

 

ORGANIC KERCHIEF BIB

Made with three layers of GOTS certified Organic Cotton.

 

 

 

ORGANIC ZIPPER PAJAMA

Organic Zipper Pajama – Made with 100% Certified Organic Cotton. Zipper front closure. Packaged in a reusable draw string bag perfect for diaper wipes and up to 4 diapers. Imported.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ORGANIC SWADDLE BLANKET

Made with GOTS certified Organic Cotton Muslin.

 

 

 

 

Why Milk Barn: Whether it was the name or the precious organic prints, I was instantly sold on Milk Barn! They offer everything from swaddles to burp cloths, clothes and more. I personally wanted to find some fun swaddles and burp cloths as you always see people reach for everyday solid color options. Why do white when you can reach for fun options such as these? I adored the fruit and whale designs and wanted to use them at the hospital. As I learned, you have to burp mid and post feed to prevent hiccups. Swaddling is a must with soothing babies and these sheer options are great for learning versus heavy blankets. Be sure to check back this fall to get feedback on product quality!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eventually, Earth Mama outgrew Melinda’s garage, laundry room, dining room, kitchen and halfway down the bedroom hall, so the company expanded into a facility in Clackamas, Oregon. Soon, thousands of pregnant women and new mamas looked to Earth Mama for safe herbal products for baby care, and to effectively treat the discomforts of pregnancy, postpartum and breastfeeding. Now, Melinda’s company is known as Earth Mama Organics … but it’s still the same reliable, trusted line of mama and baby care that began over two decades ago.

ORGANIC RASPBERRY LEAF TEA

Truth: the uterus is where the magic happens —so show her some love. Earth Mama’s 100% Organic Raspberry Leaf Tea has herbs traditionally used to help nurture and support women, soothe period cramps, support healthy lady times and helps tone the uterus to prepare for childbirth*. Sip as often as needed, ladies! Raspberry leaf and your uterus will become new best friends.

 

 

HERBAL PERINEAL SPRAY

Fact: Pregnancy and childbirth will change your lady parts. Here’s another fact: You will heal. And there’s no harm in getting some cooling comfort “down there” along the way. Herbal Perineal Spray is a soothing touch-free herbal mist for pregnancy and postpartum use, with a clever upside down sprayer so it’s easier to reach hard to get places. With cucumber, organic witch hazel and organic essential oils, it’s safe for both before and after birth. No parabens, propellants, benzocaine or artificial fragrance. ‘Cause who wants any of that down there?

 

 

ORGANIC PERINEAL BALM

Now 100% organic! Truth: Growing and giving birth to baby is magical, but it can do a number “down there.” If we could write a vajingle for this salve — and play it every time you open this jar — we would. But we can’t, so we’ll say this: effective Organic Perineal Balm helps provide lasting, cooling comfort for pregnancy and postpartum places. And remember, your body WILL go back to normal — a new normal, but normal nonetheless. Promise.

 

 

ORGANIC DIAPER BALM

Now 100% organic! Chubby and dimpled? Yes. Red and irritated? No. Being a brand new human is tough — so diaper cream should be as gentle as it is effective. And while we’re calling this Organic Diaper Balm, it’s so much more. Think extraordinarily soothing calendula diaper balm, so your baby’s bum can stay the way it’s meant to be: chubby-soft and cheerful-cheeked!

 

 

ORGANIC HERBAL SITZ BATH

Take care “down there” with herbal compresses filled with organic herbs traditionally used to soothe and comfort “down there” during pregnancy or after childbirth. Packed in easy-to-use, individual herbal sachets, each one is perfect for one use. The compresses can be cooled and gently “tucked” to help ease those pretty places, or use the brewed infusion to make postpartum padsicles or use as a sitz bath. Which is kind of like making tea for your nethers. Which is a totally lovely and perfectly polite thing to do.

 

 

 

ORGANIC PERIODIC TEA

We women periodically power through a whole lot of blood, sweat and tears. This tea gives back on all the P days: period, postpartum and even perimenopause. It’s a comforting cinnamon-delicious blend of organic herbs traditionally used for postpartum support and to help ease symptoms of PMS and premenstrual cramping. Sip it, and then? Go forth and rest.

 

 

ORGANIC NIPPLE BUTTER

Now 100% organic! Soothing Organic Nipple Butter is buttery and botanical-rich, lanolin-free and non-sticky. It moisturizes dry skin, and brings your nipples back to their happy place. And since it just might end up in baby’s mouth, it’s Non-GMO Project Verified. So there’s no need to wash it off before nursing!

 

 

 

 

BOOBY TUBES®

Booby Tubes® are clever little, gel-free breast packs made with an organic cotton shell and filled with fresh, pliable flax seed. Use warm or cold, depending on your nursing needs. When heated, Booby Tubes® deliver warm, moist heat to tender breasts; when stored in the freezer they offer cooling comfort. Traditionally used to help ease breastfeeding discomfort, heat can help encourage milk flow, avoid clogged ducts, promote let-down and comfort the symptoms of infection, and cold is used to help reduce the swelling and tenderness of engorgement and weaning.

 

Why Earth Mama: Why on earth not! lol. You’ll be surprised to know that there are not many companies that cater to the 4th trimester. Many focus on just pregnancy and then after that it’s all baby products. EM offers everything from teas to tone the cervix before delivery, sitz bath, milk tea, body balms, and even tea for when your cycle returns! On top of all that they have an array of baby products and something called “booby tubes”, which is designed to alleviate breast discomfort post baby. I’ve always bought their items for friends pregnancies and am so excited to report back on product quality! So far, greatly impressed and it was amazing to have them on hand at the hospital and entering the fourth trimester. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We did a LOT of research before creating Cutie Pea and discovered that an incredible amount of waste is created by diapers. Just think about how many diapers a day a baby uses, and how many days there are in diaper wearing years. That’s an insane amount of diapers from just one family! So in our quest to make a better diaper for our baby, we realized we wanted to create a better diaper for the planet…our kids’ planet. Our grandchildren’s planet.

 

We also learned that using the best quality materials is expensive. Bamboo is sustainable, but it was a challenge to make the business sustainable at first! It was worth it to us, because we wanted materials that were eco-friendly and biodegradable. We also wanted our main material to be easy to grow and thus sustainable.

Why Cutie Pea: After featuring a variety of non toxic diapers the other month, I happened to discover a brand new company with packaging and marketing that was just perfection! CP is a company that offers non toxic bamboo based diapers and wipes that are 100% biodegradable. Rather than opting for the hospital diapers and wipes, I wanted to bring my own non toxic options. I believe at this time CP products are not accessible at any major retailers, but you can find them directly online via their website. I’m excited to test the quality behind CP and report back as I couldn’t find any feedback given that they are brand new! Be sure to check them out to learn more!

The Weekender features our signature half-round zipper top that opens wide to help make packing a cinch. The roomy interior can fit a few outfits and a couple pairs of shoes, and features our custom logo-print nylon lining.

Why Fawn Design::  One of the staple items every mom is on the search for is a good diaper bag! Even as someone who loves to splurge on such items I found even designer bags to be overpriced and underwhelming in regards to design. That being said, I was excited to stumble upon FD as they truly have gorgeous designs at a great price! In addition to vegan leather diaper bags they feature traditional purses etc, but I was instantly drawn towards the travel/overnight bag. There were countless pockets, the design was sleek, and it will make for not only the perfect hospital bag, but babe will now have his own travel bag for overnight stays. In addition to the countless pockets to organize your things, it also comes with a shoulder strap and smaller travel bags for toiletries and more. I’m excited to report back on how FD worked for us. I’m already in love!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we became new mothers we found it difficult to feel confident and beautiful while performing all the many functions of being a mom. So uplifting mothers with fresh and beautiful designs, became the focus of our company. We feel confident our products can bring simplicity which is key to this busy time of life. Milk Maid Goods is committed to provide quality, innovative, and multi-functional products that are proudly made in the USA.

 

 

 

Sky Flowers Milkmaid Robe

This beautiful cross-over robe is the perfect addition  to every woman’s wardrobe. It features 3/4 length sleeves, pockets, a sash secure hole (for the sash to go through) so there’s no unexpected peekaboos, and buttery soft jersey knit fabric. Each robe comes with the perfect sash to keep everything together.  Once you’ve worn it, you will never want to wear anything else.

 

 

 

Navy Swaddle and Hat Set

This lightweight swaddle is the cutest way to wrap your newborn baby. Its soft and stretchy and perfect to keep your baby comfortable and cool while sleeping. It’s also a great blanket to lay your baby on, a great cover while nursing, and a comfort blanket for your toddler to snuggle with as they grow.

 

 

 

Why Milkmaid Goods: Other essential hospital bag items are the post birth gown. Whether you take pictures or not, it’s nice to have something clean and new to throw on once your babe arrives. There are only a handful of companies online that cater to this so your options are limited. I fell in love with MM as they offer more than just robes and swaddles, the designs look great, and you can mix and match however you like. Since we’re having a boy, I wanted to avoid putting him in floral prints and was able to do that seamlessly through MM! Excited to report back how these worked for us!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of the very first companies I instantly fell in love with, was Monica & Andy. There isn’t a lot of accessible company information online, but they’re a small boutique owned and operated by a brother and sister with locations in NYC, New Jersey, Chicago, California, and Kansas. This brother sister duo creates the most precious designs. They offer organic cotton options for both babies and toddlers and the prints are just so modern, unique, and the material is buttery soft.

 

Why Monica + Andy: They have the perfect sets that are great for gifts or that first trip home from the hospital. They offer a wide design range from fun prints to solids so there is something for everyone. If you’re searching for gift sets they also have tons of options! I chose the Hospital Cuddle Box™️ and also sampled the adult womens robe.

While I don’t see it available online via M+A at this time, it’s one of my favorite pieces. It’s ultra soft, organic, can be monogrammed, washes well, you can wear at the hospital and after. As I type this, I’m wearing it lol. If you’re searching for unique baby items I can’t recommend M+A enough! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DID YOU KNOW?

Many candles are made entirely from paraffin, a petroleum by-product. At Lafco Our wax blend is majority soy, which is naturally derived from vegetables and 100% biodegradable. Not all soy wax blends are created equally; some soy blends contain considerable amounts of paraffin. An easy way to tell is by touching and inspecting the wax – a higher soy content candle (like ours) is hard and opaque, while a low soy content candle will be translucent and can feel soft and oily. Learn more about the company here

 

Chamomile Lavender Soap

The understated luxury of freshly-laundered, turned-down bedlinens. Nearby, a delicate arrangement of lavender sprigs rests on the adjoining bedside table as the sun begins to set. Tranquility at its chicest. Crisp bergamot and warm chamomile melt into a calm undertone of lavender, sage, eucalyptus and smoky patchouli.

 

 

Chamomile Lavender Candle

The understated luxury of freshly-laundered, turned-down bedlinens. Nearby, a delicate arrangement of lavender sprigs rests on the adjoining bedside table as the sun begins to set. Tranquility at its chicest.

Crisp bergamot and warm chamomile melt into a calm undertone of lavender, sage, eucalyptus and smoky patchouli.

 

 

Chamomile Lavender Reed Diffuser

The understated luxury of freshly-laundered, turned-down bedlinens. Nearby, a delicate arrangement of lavender sprigs rests on the adjoining bedside table as the sun begins to set. Tranquility at its chicest.

Crisp bergamot and warm chamomile melt into a calm undertone of lavender, sage, eucalyptus and smoky patchouli.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Not all reed diffusers are created equally; many fragrance oils only last for a few months, while ours last for up to one year.
  • Our handblown art glass diffuser vessels are designed to be reused; refills are available for purchase at lafco.com.

 

 

Chamomile Lavender Soap

Artfully made in Europe, our ultra hydrating, natural Chamomile Lavender bar soap cleanses with a creamy, rich lather and leaves your skin luxuriously fragranced.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Our bar soaps are aged for 4 weeks which makes them dense, long lasting and quick drying after each use. That means our soaps don’t have as much water as other bars and won’t break down as quickly.
  • Our bar soaps contain omega fatty acids that are good for your skin and can help to combat dry irritated skin and conditions like eczema.

 

Marine Candle

Harmless waves slap against the kayak as it glides its way toward the shore under the late afternoon sun. The intoxicating sea air is suddenly enhanced by wet floral notes of water lily, sea jasmine and rose as the boat paddles closer to landing. Clean and luminous marine notes work their ozonic magic on bergamot, jasmine and vetiver.

 

 

Why Lafco: I’ve been a huge fan of Lafco products since 2007. There is something about the brand that just draws you in. Whether it be the gorgeous timeless scents, the packaging, or even the just the glass the candles come in, everything is very well executed. With our upcoming hospital stay I wanted to feel right at home with scents that were calming and made me forget that I was in a hospital. The environment alone just gives me anxiety. It might be extra, but it truly made a difference and all the nurses were asking me what is that smell every time they entered the room.

 

Since candles may not be permitted within your hospital, the room sprays and the diffusers are wonderful, and their soaps are heavenly. While the price point can be higher, you truly get what you pay for. Gorgeous packaging, you can reuse the glass candle holders, and their products last. Also, they have great sales! Be sure to check out Lafco if you’re searching for that comforting scent for the hospital or your home. We even have a diffuser for the nursery to create a calm space!

Entire alphabet on 10 blocks and half-painted geometric designs on remaining sides. Untreated wood and hand painted with organic paint, polished with organic jojoba oil and beeswax

 

Why Modern Blocks: As someone who loves monogramming and capturing every moment on camera, I was on the hunt to find the cutest block sets to use for images and decor. Believe it or not there are limited options in this category and MB instantly caught my eye! They are a small business that provides handmade wooden blocks with a modern aesthetic appeal. From the colors to the personalized designs, there isn’t a company that that provides that. I can’t wait to capture these with our son and love the idea that they’ll become treasured pieces that we’ll hold onto. I brought these to the hospital to use with our photographer. Be sure to check back this fall to learn more about product quality. If there is a design you’re seeking for the blocks that you don’t see online, just ask!






 

 

 

 

It is with a grateful heart that we welcome you to our Bannor Toy family.  We started Bannor Toys back in 2011 with the idea that the wooden toys we found in our grandparents houses should be made modern to allow our children’s imagination and creativity to develop in a way the battery operated toys of today don’t.

Each set of 12 comes in a cloth carry bag.

 

Why Bannor Toys: I’m personally drawn to small businesses and instantly loved Bannor Toys. They have a small variety of handmade blocks and toys that have monogramming options. I loved the price point, the fact that they are not treated with anything toxic, and the smell was amazing. I’m not quite sure how to describe it, but the wood is just very aromatic. Rather than buying a store bought option that has been treated with chemicals these are a great find and will be keepsakes for your family til the end of time. I’m curious how these will hold up once he begins to play with them. Be sure to check back in the fall.

Alimrose Designs (formerly Native Bush Babies) began in the very early 1980’s when two mothers were tired of not being able to access Australian designed dolls and products for their children. This inspired them to begin their own company. The company originally made Australian themed dolls and figurines based around the characters from the stories of May Gibbs. Over the years the range grew and eventually included a large range of beautiful dolls, soft toys, rattles, bibs, quilts & home wares. Click here to learn more about the company


I sampled the following items below that are captured in the main image above: 

 

 

Why AlimRose: When gathering my things for the hospital I of course wanted to bring my own swaddles, however, I also wanted high quality blankets that would become keepsakes. When I stumbled across this Australian company I was instantly in love with their designs. From the dolls to the organic blankets and even the little bunny shoes, I was sold. We’ve been using their blankets the last week and I have to say, hands down they are my favorite as they are softer than any other blanket I have and add a touch of decor to any nursery. Be sure to circle back this fall for a full review on product quality! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of my daughters has chronic eczema. At night, she would pull open her pajamas to stay cool, which seemed to calm her from constant scratching. I started to research, looking for fabrics that would keep her skin cool, and also wouldn’t irritate her. Turns out, that fabric is bamboo.

 

 

 

 

Bamboo is 3 degrees cooler than cotton, while also being hypoallergenic. I started putting bamboo clothing and swaddles on her. The softness & coolness of the fabric are unmatched by cotton, or anything else for that matter. She immediately stopped pulling off her clothes, and her sleep significantly improved. I also found out that bamboo is a highly sustainable resource. It requires much less time & water to grow bamboo compared to cotton, and it practically uses no pesticides. It fit every criteria I was looking for in a fabric. With that choice made, Kyte BABY was born.

The stretchy material gives you the option to have a snug or looser fit while still staying comfortable and stylish. The pants pair perfectly with our bamboo onesies!

 

Why Kyte Baby: I had seen Kyte baby designs here and there and received a piece as a gift. I instantly fell in love with the brand once I got to feel the fabric as it’s light, cool to the skin and buttery soft. I would say Kyte baby and Kickee Pants would have to be 2 of the brands that produce the softest bamboo based apparel. This company produces everything from the standard onesies to bathrobes, crib sheets, and more in such great colors. Believe it or not, organic baby bathrobes are hard to find. That being said, once I saw they produced robe options, I knew we had to feature them. I brought these pieces to the hospital as the fabric is breathable and ultra soft. I’m excited to see how these pieces hold up with washing and report back with thoughts on product quality.

While companies roll our endless flavors that are typically packed with sugar, BP has created staple blends to last. I love the consistency behind the brand, and the blends are just so good! So why are juices imperative during my hospital stay? For one with an epidural you are prohibited to eat and can only consume a liquid diet. Post birth you’l also need all the hydration you can get from recovering from the delivery itself and to keep up with nursing.

 

My favorites are the lemon and cayenne, pineapple and the cashew milk blends. While parsley and mint have been associated with decreasing milk supply, I believe you would need to consume an ample amount to see any significant changes in your production. Having juices on hand made hydration seamless and I felt more prepared pre and post pregnancy. If your overwhelmed with navigating juice options, I highly recommend BP as it’s my go to!
