Prepping for baby Micaela

If you follow me on social media then you already know that I am in full prep mode for baby Micaela. While I wouldn't say I am nesting just yet I will admit to having an overwhelming need to feel prepared with as much stuff possible for her. Ok, maybe I am nesting but don't tell bae yet lol! 

In honor of our little Micaela I am excited to share with you the baby essentials box I just received from Babbleboxx.  I must say this box saved the day. It included a little bit of everything for our little girl and me! Here are my thoughts on the items I received.

First up was this super cute outfit from Osh Kosh – Baby B’Gosh. Oh my goodness can we just gush for a second at how cute these overalls are? Yes, I'm in love! I am already a huge fan of Osh Kosh – Baby B’Gosh since I've been shopping there for my nephew's toddler clothes.  I love that their baby clothing is on trend while still being so soft.  Looking to pick up something sweet for your little one? Well you know I have to hook up my SHC readers.   Use online code: OKBG3352 or retail code: 036992 to receive 20% off $40+ purchase.

So I will admit I didn't know much about Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Maximum Strength Jar before I received it but after doing my research I knew that this was the product for us.  Have you stopped to read the ingredient list in some of the leading diaper creams? Well, I have and it's a little scary what they put in there. Yea that's not going on my baby's bootie.  That is what I love about Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. It is supper effective without all the harsh ingredients and with my best friend being a pediatrician, I also loved that it was strongly recommended by her and other leading physicians.

Next up for baby girl was something to keep her skin soft and hydrated and that's Mustela: Hydra Bébé ® Body Lotion. This was already on my registry list so I was excited to receive it from BabbleBoxx.  Why am I obsessed with it? Well its hypoallergenic and 97% of the ingredients use are from natural origins. Again, please read the ingredient listing of everything you apply on baby because some of the stuff I've seen from other brands so far is just crazy.  And ladies of course I have another discount code for you! Make sure to use code: BABBLEBOX17 to receive 20% off at  Yes, I will be stocking up on this one!

All right now its time for momma's goodies! First was something that I literally screamed when I saw it and that's the Land’s End: Diaper Bag.  Figuring out what diaper bag I wanted to get has been on my mind since I found out I was pregnant. I know, its crazy but I've seen so many people get bags that are just tossed to the side for a regular tote. Well ladies, I think I found my bag! I love that it is lightweight, has SO MANY pockets and it is easy to clean and transport. Plus can we talk about how cute this print and color is?

The next item for momma was the incredible Mumbrella. Ok, this is truly a genius product and I am in love with it already.  The Mumbrella is a stroller umbrella designed to protect mom from the rain and sun. With my Sjogren's Syndrome I am suppose to stay away from the sun so this is perfect for our daily walks. Btw, don't laugh at how I have out days already planned out. ๐Ÿ™‚ When ordering make sure to use code BABBLEBOXX for free shipping.

Another mommy item that I freaked over was the Playtex Nursing Bra Collection.  As a plus size women finding a nursing bra in my size has been pretty challenging so when I received this one I was beyond excited to try it out. Now at a DD this is not the bra that is going to keep you pointing to the Gods but it will keep you comfortable during a time that is most needed. I am already wearing mine in place of my traditional bra. 

Last but not least, mommy received Vichy – Mineral 89.  Skincare has been a top priority for me lately. I will say I love this baby "glow" and I am determined to keep my face feeling soft, hydrated and nourished well after baby is born. Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water is included all of products to help strengthen skin against internal and external aggressors, such as pollution and stress. Vichy – Mineral 89 feels amazing on your skin. It is immediately hydrating and dried down quickly.  A little goes a long way as well.  Ladies, here is another code for you, make sure to use code: BabbleBoxx to receive 20% off and free shipping off of order made between 9/1/2017 and 11/30/2017.

So my lovelies, there you have it. This Babbleboxx was truly perfection, a little for baby and a little for mommy. What are some of the baby and mommy must haves that you recommend?
