best gifts for: new & expecting moms {with the baby cubby}

Wednesday, January 11, 2017

I get asked a million questions about baby products! I'm a self-proclaimed baby-stuff addict and I'm not afraid to admit it. I LOVE shopping for the latest and greatest baby products, and I have so much fun finding new products to help make moms lives easier (without sacrificing style, of course). I'm super excited to partner with the Baby Cubby today to share my top gifts for new & expecting moms!

Chances are you know someone who is either expecting, or has just had a baby, and this post has been a long time coming! If you follow me on Instagram or read my blog at all, you've probably heard of most of these products, because they're all of my favorites. 

The Baby Cubby has EVERYTHING you could ever need and more. It's like going to that super cute baby boutique in your town that has all of the newest, most stylish and unique goodies, without having to leave your house. Seriously, they're not just another baby store! The Baby Cubby team is made up of parents who have been there-done that. Not only do they provide the best and safest products, but they are truly an amazing resource to help you through this crazy journey of parenthood. Be sure to check out the Cubby Community Blog, where they discuss some of those hard parenting topics.

So without further ado...


THIS is the cream of all creams. Its name is no joke. It's freaking dream cream. I use it for a regular lotion, for diaper rash, to sit and smell because it's heavenly...everything.

Freshly Picked Moccs. They're pretty much all I put Saydee (when she was younger) and Knix in. They are so soft and ADORABLE, and they're perfect for those little feet learning to walk!

Okay, so this one I can't exactly give you my opinion on because I've never actually used one. BUT, I've heard nothing but amazing things about the DockATot! I've read soooooo many good reviews, know a million people that use it and love it, and I'm 100% getting one when we have another baby. (Whoa did I just say WHEN?...If? Ah!)

If I could marry Tubby Todd, I would. Like I said above, the dream cream is amazing, and so is everything else. It smells delicious, and it's all natural. It doesn't feel greasy in the least, and it's just great all around. I love.

Lulujo turkish towels. I hadn't really even heard of turkish towels until I was introduced to these Lulujo ones a few months ago. They're super lightweight, but so soft and they just get softer with time. I love them for anything and I especially like to keep one in the car in case I ever need it. And let's be real...if you have'll need it.

Stick a tube in my kids snotty nose and suck the boogers out with my mouth? Sure, why not! Okay, the Nose Frida sounds super disgusting in theory, but it's probably in my top 5 MUST-HAVE baby products. It works like a charm, and the filter in between your baby's boogers and your mouth works just like it's supposed to. I've never gotten sick from using it, and it's 1,000 times more efficient than the old school nose bulb.

The Owlet baby monitor. I wrote an entire post on this that you can read ---> HERE. This monitor gave me such peace of mind when Knix was little. I, like a lot of moms, have terrible anxiety when it comes to my sleeping baby. This monitor is amazing.

Out with the old, in with the new. Bandana bibs are the newest, and really, most genius new bib style for the little ones. Knix drools everywhere. All. The. Time. I love these Copper Pearl ones! They have super soft felt on the back, and there are tons of different styles. Love.

When I give a gift to new a mama friend, swaddles are in my gift basket 98% of the time. They're SO versatile, and can be used as a swaddle, regular blanket, burp rag, carseat cover, nursing cover...they're the best! I love these Little Unicorn ones, and I've even had a friend sew them together for me after the "baby" phase, to make a thicker blanket out of them!

Why yes, yes I do have a Gathre mat in pretty much every size and color, thanks for asking! These micro ones are THE perfect changing pad to keep in your diaper bag. They're super soft and can roll up, so they don't take up much room. Super cute and so stylish!

Ahhhh yes, Kickee Pants. The pjs of all pjs. These things are gold. Fabric. Gold. It really doesn't get any softer than Kickee Pants, and they're our absolute favorite brand of pjs! They make all kinds of clothes, so it definitely doesn't stop at pjs, but UGH they're AMAZING!

My stroller of choice is the Uppababy Vista. I've tested (and used regularly) many, many other strollers, but this is my favorite. I also love the GLUXE and GLINK, their single and double umbrella strollers. Uppababy for life...until I find something better.

The Aden & Anais burpy bib is one fabulous "invention". It can be used over your shoulder as a burp cloth, but also has snaps so that it can be snapped around the baby and used as a regular bib. Genius, and of course everything they make is soft and adorable!

My Happy Baby Wrap was a freaking lifesaver. Being able to have your hands free, while still snuggling and comforting your sweet babe is the best thing EVER. These wraps look kind of complicated, but I promise you they're so easy! I blogged a little tutorial you can read ----> HERE.

Another top 5-er is a nursing cover. THIS Covered Goods cover is another one of my absolute must-haves. It gives you full coverage while nursing in public, but it's still super light and airy, so it isn't sweating out you or the babe. It also doubles/triples/whatevers as a carseat cover, as well as a shopping cart cover. If you can only gift a mama one thing, let this be it.

ALRIGHT. I could literally go on for days about baby things I love. I'm super pumped that The Baby Cubby has done all the work for us, and placed everything I need in one spot. Feel free to leave any questions you have about products in the comments below. I have so many other favorites that weren't on here and I'd love to share if you need some more suggestions!

OH YEAH!! THEY PRICE-MATCH!! Seriously, even Amazon. AND there's always free shipping over $49. I love me a good price match *fist bump*. AND you can register with them. Yep, they do it all.

**HUGE thanks to The Baby Cubby for partnering with me on this post. I'm obsessed with this stuff.**
