A few mom must-have's

I've been using the following products for a good while now.  They've treated me so well I wanted to share them with you.

Timi & Leslie Diaper Bag



I looked long and hard for a diaper bag while I was pregnant.  I wanted it to be practical, worth the money, and fit for everyday use.  The ones I found at Target were a little too pricey for what you were getting, and the ones I found on Pinterest were way out of my price range.  So I decided to buy a beach type tote from TJ Maxx until I found the perfect diaper bag.  Four months later, I found this Timi & Leslie bag at Nordstrom Rack.  And it was perfect.  I got it for $79.00, and it was originally $179.00.

It includes:

Changing pad with diapers/wipes pocket
Pouch for mom's things
Stroller straps
Detachable/adjustable straps
Insulated bottle holder
Dirty clothes sack

It's made well, easy to carry, and fits everything I need to run a quick errand or for a day trip.  I couldn't recommend it more!


Eddie Bauer Changing Pad


Depending on your diaper bag situation, you may need to purchase a changing pad.  I've been using this one since our little one was born, and I love it.  It has a diaper/wipes pocket, is durable, and stores well.  I picked this one up from Target for $12.

Coconut Oil


While I was pregnant, I read coconut oil is multi-purpose baby product.  I've put coconut oil on any redness that Ella's had, and it's cleared her skin right up.  I also put some on her feet after baths. Since a little goes a long way, it lasts a while and you get your money's worth.

Dr. Bronner's Pure Castile Soap (Unscented Baby Mild)


This is another product I came across when looking for cost effective products.  I bought this soap for $15, and I've had it since Ella was born.  It's been gentle on Ella's skin, and a little goes a long way!

  1. Dr Bronner's is amazing stuff. I've used it since I was little and my mom would buy the peppermint. Now I use every day on my face, the lavender bar soap, and I've loved it for years!!

    Just a note on the whole baby wipes thing --- I recently had an opportunity to buy some wipes for my own use (colonoscopy - ugh). I bought the Pampers Sensitive wipes. I cannot begin to tell you how incredibly painful and burning those things are!!! I was shocked that they hurt SOOOO much, and they were made for use on a baby when they can't tell you that their bum is on fire because of stupid wipes!! :-(

    Love the bag - it's so you for a diaper bag! ;-)

  2. That's awesome! It really is. I'm happy I came across the stuff.

    Oh my word. That sounds awful! We've tried a couple different brands, but we always come back to the Up & Up unscented ones. They haven't given Ella any problems. Water wipes work well, too!

    Thanks! I really lucked out. :)
