Back when I had Scarlet, things were different in the mom and baby product department. And things were more advanced when I had Des, but I wasn’t a blogger then! I feel so happy and lucky to be on year six of this career, and while pregnant. I feel like the products are better than ever, and I get to experience them! This awesome bundle of products is for you, the new or returning mama, and also for baby too. It’s really a wonderful mix of products that we are getting to test drive right now, and save some for baby too. I’m at that point in pregnancy in which I’m so excited to meet him. Who is this little human who moves and grooves to ice water and awesome music? And how lucky will he be to be so loved by his parents and big siblings, and to have all this cool stuff to test out! In the meantime, I’ll be making my own checklist here.
New Mom and New Baby Faves Checklist:
1 – Calming Baby Bath, Calming Baby Lotion and Gentle Baby Lotion from Baby Magic:
I love having these! Baby Magic Calming Baby Bath is a hydrating and tear-free formula that contains lavender and chamomile to help soothe baby into a sweet slumber, and to keep that skin super soft! You can find out more about it here:
Calming Baby Lotion locks in moisture and helps lull baby to sleep with the soft scents of lavender and chamomile. This is a perfect addition to the post-bath nighttime routine. You can find it here.
And then there’s Gentle Baby Lotion – which wraps baby in the comforting, classic scent of Baby Magic. This is a quick absorbing formula that contains good-for-you ingredients, like anti-oxidant rich Vitamins and hydrating Aloe for healthy, baby-soft skin. Find it here.
As you may know, Baby Magic has been a trusted skincare brand for mothers and their little ones for decades, and now, they’re giving us more of a reason to shop! Baby Safety Month is in September, and Baby Magic will be donating a portion of proceeds of its white-tagged 30 oz. Gentle Baby Lotion, Calming Baby Bath, and Calming Baby Lotion to Baby2Baby. This is an organization that provides children living in poverty, ages 0- 12 years, with all the basic necessities for living. that every child deserves. The promotion runs until supplies last. Also, all Baby Magic products are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, and free from sulfates, dyes, parabens and phthalates.
2 – Disney Lullaby playlist:
Being a mom is a magical experience, but it has new challenges – like getting your newborn into a regular, healthy sleep routine! And since that’s the key to child-development, and your sanity, Disney Lullaby is for you! It’s a music playlist featuring soothing & calming renditions of the most beloved Disney songs that will help your baby to relax and fall asleep. Whether you’re a new mom, or a veteran like me, there’s music to soothe and calm everyone’s weary mind, including your own. How cool is it to imagine your favorite Disney songs performed as lullabies? These songs are available on every streaming service, wherever you consume music. And you can find it on Philips Pregnancy+ and Baby+ apps, that are free apps to track your baby’s development through pregnancy and birth. Find out more about it here.
3 – Auto-Dish Detergent Pods from Lemi Shine:
Did you know that Lemi Shine Dishwasher Detergent Pods are powered by natural citric extracts to deliver a sparkling finish? I love that it’s effective in cleaning your dishes’ toughest stains, and formulated without harsh toxins or chemicals, making it a safer choice for the family (including fur babies!) and the environment. It makes total sense to switch to different cleaning products when baby is born, and this is 100% clean. Plus there’s zero toxic residue – as many conventional cleaning products often contain toxic chemicals that remain on the surface of dishes and countertops unless they’re thoroughly wiped away after use. Lemi Shine means that no additional rinse or wipe down is needed. You can purchase it in stores and online at a variety or US retailers, like Target, Walmart, Amazon, Albertsons-Safeway, Publix, and HEB.
4 – Get Up & Go B12 Fast Dissolve Tabs from Pink Products:
I love these Pink Get Up & Go B12 Fast Dissolve Tabs! They are quick-dissolving tablets that are vegan-friendly, Non-GMO, Gluten Free, and Dairy Free. Not to mention that they have a delicious natural mixed berry flavor and feature the dynamic duo of Vitamin B12 and L-Carnitine. This lively blend of 5000 mcg of Vitamin B12 and the important amino acid L-Carnitine dissolves quickly to fit right into your busy lifestyle. It’s an easy dose – you only need one a day! Plus they’re of superior quality, laboratory tested, and 100% guaranteed. Visit pinkproducts.com for a $2.50 off coupon, and to find a retailer near you! Valid through 12/31/20.
5 – My First Horoscope, Illustrated by Rachel McAllister from Running Press Kids:
This book is the cutest horoscope book EVER! Seriously, big sister Scarlet keeps reading it in anticipation of the baby being a Libra. We think she’s right! Also, “My First Horoscope” is an adorable baby gift idea, because it can be the first board book to introduce young babies and toddlers to all signs of the horoscope. And there’s a space to personalize your little one’s birthday. There are sweet and bright illustrations for young ones to look at. You can find out more about it here.
6 – Breastfeeding Consultation from Simplifed:
This is awesome. You can receive a 30-minute breastfeeding consultation! I think this is so important. Making decisions about infant nutrition isn’t easy, and that’s whether you’re exclusively breastfeeding, deciding what pump to buy, or supplementing with formula. I love that SimpliFed makes it so convenient to meet securely over video with an experienced international board-certified lactation consultant from the comfort of your own home to wade through these decisions. Schedule your initial consultation for 30 or 60 minutes, and any follow-up appointments as well. They can help you through topics like breastfeeding, infant allergies, and more. Right now, they are offering a 10% discount for YOU! Use code: TamaraCameraBlogSimpliBox110 at their website here.
7 – Lil’ Squish Jellyfish, Magical Unicorn Training Toothbrush and Mystical Dragon Toothbrush from Baby Banana:
Well, aren’t these fun? Lil’ Squish Jellyfish is a sensory rattle and teether toy, with a variety of textures for your teething baby. It has tentacles that are easy for little learning hands to grasp, and a gentle bell to help hold their attention.
And then there’s the Magical Unicorn Training Toothbrush. It helps your little one learn how to brush their teeth during the teething phase, when they actually want to put everything in their mouth. Plus, the magical horn has soft massaging bristles that feel great on sore teething gums. As for the Mystical Dragon Toothbrush, it’s a 100% food grade silicone training toothbrush for infants and toddlers, with dual sided bristles. Your little teether can work out their roughest teething pain on the durable silicone toothbrush. It’s dishwasher safe and freezer friendly.
