New baby favorites.

September 15, 2016


It feels like a whole new experience getting to have a baby girl again. Forgot how fun the little details of sugar and spice and everything nice are. As we settle into a family of 7, there is little I have been doing than holding babes, feeding, napping, and somehow getting them all dressed and fed;) I will have to write a post soon about the best things you can do for a new mother, because my friends and family have taught me some lessons in that the last few weeks!

These are a few items for wee ones that are either new or long time favorites:

Free Babes Bows – It is so hard to find bows that fit newborns, let alone premies! These little bow headbands from Free Babes fit Azelie perfectly. They have sailor bows as well for big sisters.

Blabla dreamcatcher mobile – Loved how plush this is, and it actually makes for a really sweet wall hanging!

Little Unicorn Security Blankets – Found these at SugarBoo and Co. They have the satin lining that my children love that are small enough to tote around everywhere. After my son Max attached himself to a queen size duvet, I figured I would jump the gun and force a mini size attachment blanket on Azelie;) This line also carries my favorite swaddles. *They are offering a 15% discount of your purchase with code IHOD15.

Munchkin latch bottles – I have written about these before. Still my favorite for newborn through toddlers.

Briar Bonnets – Purely for my own enjoyment. I can’t resist a baby in a bonnet! Briar carries the best prints in all sizes!

Alimrose mini doll – Veronica saved this doll for months to give the baby in case we had a girl. She has the large one. These are handmade and such good quality.

Pacifier Clip and Natursutten pacifiers – A winning combination. Azelie doesn’t use this yet, but Rocco is currently very attached to this combo! 

Seventh Generation shampoo and diaper cream – Can’t get over the scent. It’ll make your babies smell edible. The ingredients are safe and effective!

Ring Teether – My sister just started making these! These beads are the only type teether Rocco liked, and they are safe and easy to clean. You can email hertriciasimpson2 (at) to snag one for $14. She can make girl, boy, or gender neutral!

Sollybaby Wrap – Never have I needed a babywrap more! With a 14 month at my ankles and a newborn in need of mama time, this has been used to death these last few weeks! Dying to get my hands on their Rifle Paper Co design.

Sleep hat – My sister in law sent this gift and thought it was too cute not to share. Goes over their eyes, and had me laughing at the mini Audrey Hepburn sleep mask it resembles.

Any baby favorites you swear by? Happy almost weekend!

    I love ALL of your pictures and how you lay everything out!
    What camera do you use for your photos?

  • These items are definitely perfect! Pretty lay out on the chalkboard?

    Our youngest wouldn’t take a bottle until six months when we tried every bottle but the comotomo. I would add this to the bunch!

    That hat is the cutest! I remember when you were audrey hepurn for halloween.

  • Would love one of the teether rings. The link to your sisters email isn’t working. I have a 4month old and she is loving putting everything in her mouth!

  • I am curious – and I do hope you will be honest because you are one of the few bloggers who is transparent anymore – but how many of these items did you buy and how many were gifted? I understand that something can be your favorite either way but I am interested to know which items were value enough to you that you made a purchase and which fell into your lap and won you over.

    • Hi Eliza! Good question, and I should have marked the items that were a gift with a c/o as I usually do. Half of these items were gifts from family or friends, a few of them are gifts from the small businesses, and a few I bought. I love to support small businesses so will accept them occasionally if it is an item I know I will use and love or my readers will appreciate. The Alimrose dolls for instance are handmade by the sweetest gal and they are some of the best I have seen designed! I buy the Little Unicorn swaddles for everyone I know from Sugarboo and Co. b/c they are my absolute favorites. Hope this clarifies a little more. I appreciate transparency too. All the best!

      • Thanks! I love to hear what bloggers do purchase for friends and family even if it was something gifted by shops or partners.

  • Loved all the products. How funny that your sister started making teething rings, because I also started making teething necklaces hehe. Babies love them when teething, and keeps them away from the hair.

  • The nap hat! It has been absolutely indispensable for the 1st 4-5 months with our kids. I could never get them to sleep in the wrap or when we were out and about without it. They would be too distracted if I didn’t pop it on their sweet heads. However, at some point they start to get so interested in the world and fight it. Until then– Godsend! I’m surprised it doesn’t show up on more lists.
