Swaddle Me This

Swaddling your newborn can be tricky. Often blankets are too small and will not keep your baby in that super tight bundle package to help them feel secure enough to fall asleep. But bar none the most soft and versatile swaddle blankets ever made are by Aden and Anais. They offer not only the perfect soft and tight swaddle but also can be used as a crib sheet, tummy time blanket, mosquito netting or as a quick car seat or stroller cover to block the sun from burning your baby. Made of breathable cotton muslin, they come in packets of four and retail for $44.

A Beach Bag Without the Sand

With spring in the air, I have been day dreaming about future trips to the beach. But finding the perfect beach bag that leaves the sand at the beach has been a a bit of a challenge.
I think I have finally found a good solution from Salt Water Canvas. This company specializes in custom mesh canvas bags in a variety of styles and colors. Each bag keeps your beach gear well organized and with a couple of shakes before you leave you can knock the sand out so you don't drag it home with you.

The "Whale Bag" (ERV $38.95 - currently on sale for $35.85)

Post Mommy Jeans

Before I was a mom, I wore trendy jeans such as Seven or Citizens. But I found that in my new life as a mom I need to bend over all the time. And well, I just am not comfortable with flashing my underwear to the whole world all the time. Thankfully there are a few jeans out there that offer a higher rise or "mid rise" in the back and front but are not awful Mom Jeans.

Below are a few to try on:

Gap "Essential"

James "Hector"

To all moms: please switch to the mid rise jeans so I too do not have to see your undergarments. Especially the thongs... I hate seeing the thongs...
