I received this adorable muslin swaddle blanket set from Pretty Baby last month just in time to get ready for baby! I was provided the set free for the sole purpose of this post, and the links are affiliate links 🙂

We got the 3pc set with robots, elephants, and cars/planes. I shared the love and gave one to my friends 2 year old, and the other one will be going to my friends newborn, shhhh don’t tell 🙂 We kept the elephant one so that will be the majority of my photos! They have a few set options available, and singles so you can get exactly what you need or a perfect baby shower gift. This girl set is so cute! One has owls!

These cotton blankets are generously sized at 47″x47″ & are eco-friendly made free from harmful dyes and chemicals. They are also made from 100% biodegradable materials, are machine washable, and wont scratch baby! They also come in gift ready packaging, and are individually tied up in a silk ribbon bow (at least my set was!)

Abel is only 11 days old and so far the uses I have found were:

These are not just great for babies! Even toddlers enjoy these for snuggles and play!

I am very happy with the size and quality of these swaddles! And you can’t beat a baby product that can be used for so many purposes and remain budget friendly!!

 

ADORABLE Muslin Swaddle Blankets (2pk)- Seben Baby

I adore these blankets! They are so cute and perfect for a boy or girl! I love owls and I am glad both blankets feature an owl in a tree with a cute animal underneath, I’m partial to the giraffe one. I am having a boy in 6 weeks and can’t wait to use these.

They are large at 47″x47″ and perfect for swaddling. I love that they are pre-washed so I wasn’t worried about shrinking when I put them in the dryer. They fluffed up a bit after being already pretty fluffy out of the bag. The bag they come in is perfect for gift giving, I love when things come in nice packaging that doesn’t make it look cheap. I washed these with an entire load of blankets/muslin to make sure they wouldn’t get any snags and they came out perfectly.

I would recommend these to anyone! Muslin blankets are my favorite because they keep baby cozy without over heating and they have so many uses from a nursing cover, to a clean spot to play on the floor. I borrowed my neighbors baby for a picture in one, and I’m glad I have 6 weeks to practice swaddling because I need to get it more snug around the face! Isn’t she adorable though?

Land of the Wee, Deer Family Collection, Organic Bamboo Baby to Toddler Hooded Towel & Washcloth Gift Set

Amazing, seriously this Organic Bamboo Baby to Toddler Hooded Towel & Washcloth Gift Set is so worth it! The pattern is adorable, the attention to detail is apparent. The box it comes in is perfect for gift giving. I ended up giving it to my son for his birthday so he could have something extra to open at his party. Everyone loved it and it was passed around to be cuddled with because it was so soft! I followed the instructions and washed it before use, and it got even softer! The wash cloth  is huge and it has the fold over like the hood so my son ended up wearing it on his head in the tub. The towel quickly became his favorite and he gets it out every time he takes a bath. My only complaint is that the pattern on the hood is upside down when worn, but honestly that’s trivial and does not take away from the amazing-ness of this set. The towel is huge and perfect for my 2-year-old toddler, and would have also been amazing when he was a newborn because of the softness. I will be buying these as gifts in the future, everyone should have this huge fluffy toddler/baby towel for their little one.

Magnetic Cabinet and Drawer Locks & Corner Protectors, No Tools Needed- Kiddos Plus

This set comes with enough parts to do 4 cabinet doors or drawers, and one coffee table or 4 corners on a counter. It comes with instructions that I had to read a couple times to fully understand what was going on. I didn’t have a pencil handy to draw marks like they said to do so I had to do it by trial and error and lots of eyeballing! I had it all on perfect, but unfortunately these do not work on a lazy-susan corner cabinet so one set I had to take off because of the way it closed. This set doesn’t come with and extra adhesive so I would suggest having some double sided permanent tape in case you need to adjust one. My husband didn’t like that I put these on my under the sink cabinet, so luckily these have a switch you click up or down and it doesn’t latch anymore. (He preferred the over the knob lock.) I am glad it comes with a magnetized disk to store the “key” up away from kids, I should have put mine further back since my kids already found it, but I ran out of extra adhesive so I can’t move it right now. The corner guards looks great, but right now my little guy is not tall enough to need them, so I am saving them for once he starts hitting his head on stuff! Overall I like the set, but if you have a large kitchen or lots of cabinets don’t forget to order extra packs! #KiddosPlusSafetyLocks

Travel Changing Pad – Portable Diaper Clutch Bag with Wipes Dispenser Kit

 

81WmyePGvzL

This fits perfectly under the second seat of my Phil & Teds stroller, if you have one of these strollers you know there is not much room for baby essentials.

11226179_10207744253185030_8345625104106893445_n

This travel changing pad has a grab handle as well as a strap w/snap so you can attach it to your strollers handle or to your headrest of your car if you so please. The changing area is quite large, it is able to be wiped down, that is a necessity with babies! You can also unzip the changing pad from the storage area if you need to deep clean it or just don’t need the changing surface. The changing surface is huge! I have plenty of room for my toddler, and you wouldn’t even need to fully unfold it for a newborn.

The included wipes case is a nice addition and keeps my wipes usable, I only put about 6 wipes in at a time just in case I go a long period without needing to use the kit. The wipes case also has a handle with snap so you can attach it to something if needed.

I think every parent should have at least one of these portable kits because they are just so handy. They are even great to stash under the couch if you have a two-story house like I do because I hate having to run upstairs just for a diaper, but I don’t have a good spot down stairs for his changing table. The clip that holds this kit together feels great quality, and the zippers feel strong as well.

Bag Nation Diaper Bag Backpack

 

this post contains affiliate links

This Bag Nation Diaper Bag Backpack is great! There are the perfect amount of pockets so you can organize everything but not be overwhelmed. There is a great wipes side pocket with access window, and the opposite side has an insulated bottle pocket! The lining on the inside is a great neutral blue color so nothing will get lost in a huge black hole like those other bags! Comes with a changing pad, I forgot to touch on that in my video, but there is a slot for it in the main compartment of the bag. Check out my video and let me know what you think of the bag, I have a cold and I am super congested I hope it is not too noticeable! This is real life so I didn’t wait to do the video 🙂

Bag Nation will be sponsoring a giveaway for one of these bags in the near future for my viewers! I received this bag at a discount for my review but someone will get one FREE!!


 

 

Ziggy Baby Crib Sheets, Also Great For Your Pack N Play

 

These jersey cotton sheets from Ziggy baby are ridiculously soft, just like the matching changing pad covers. These fit perfectly on to the crib mattress but, but they work really well on my pack and plays as well. I was in need of two sheets for my babysitting boys’ pack and plays for when they have nap time at my house. They went on easy because the sheets have a lot of springy elastic all the way around so they gather up underneath and you can just tuck the tiny bit of remaining fabric under. I would only do this for babies ages one and up for my personal opinion. The mattress’s I am using are aftermarket thicker padded ones but they also work on just the flat stock mattress as well. I am very pleased to have these in my house and think they would make excellent neutral baby shower gifts! I received these free for the sole purpose of providing my honest and unbiased review, my thought are 100% my own and were not compensated.

Changing Pad Cover, Soft Jersey Cotton – 2 Pack, Grey Chevron & Polka Dot by Ziggy Baby

 

These Ziggy Baby changing pad covers are so soft! I just ordered the matching crib sheets as well! They fit perfect on my large contoured change pad. There is no slot for the safety straps but that is not a problem the straps just go around. These covers also make a perfect bassinet sheet! I put one on my Bugaboo Cameleons bassinet and it works pretty much perfect. My son is a toddler so diaper changes are not messy so I haven’t needed to wash them yet, but I think they will just keep getting softer! Check them out on Amazon! They would be a great baby shower gift.
