New Baby Gear for Owen

So I have gotten some new baby gear that I just love!  I thought I would show it off on my blog for any new mommies that care. Here they are!

               1.  Hugamonkey Sling:

This sling has been an arm-saver.  It is very comfortable and lightweight.  The “stone” color is great because it goes with everything!  The fabric is light and is great for the warm weather we get here in SC.  It is one piece of fabric that requires no folding!  I couldn’t believe how easy it was to use.  The videos on the website are extremely helpful, but cheezy.  My favorite thing is that it is small enough to fit in my purse and pull out if I need it.  That is extremely helpful for when I’m on the go.  Almost all Hugamonkey slings run for around $30.00.  That was the best price around for slings.


2. Kidco, Inc. PeaPod 101:

This is a really neat baby product.  My husband and I are planning on a trip to Virginia Beach for the General Assembly of the PCA.  We needed something small to fit in our car (we only drive a Chevy HHR) for baby Owen to sleep in.  I also wanted something I could take to the beach to block the UV rays for the baby.  This was a great 2 in 1 solution.  I actually bought it off of Amazon for around $50.00 and free shipping. (Amazon Prime Membership)  It is really easy to unfold, in fact it opened up so fast it knocked Justin off his feet. 🙂  It also folds up and fits in a small circular bag and weighs less than 5 lbs.  It is really a great item for any mom with a little one who is traveling.  I have a feeling that this is a great investment.  I can’t wait to use it!

And Finally…. this product might be my favorite!

3. Summer Infant Swaddling blanket:

I have always loved to swaddle my boys.  It gives them a signal that tells then it is time to go to sleep.  This works great for nap-time and especially nighttime.  I have always used receiving blankets.  They work fine up until a certain point.  Owen is now “magically” getting out of the blanket swaddle.  I began looking for a solution and came to this product.   Summer Infant has a great product.  It is super easy to use.  The velcro makes it hard for the baby to wiggle out of the blanket.  This is very different to a normal blanket that many babies can magically get out of.  They have many different colors and styles to choose from.   I got both a Small/Medium and a Large because they were buy one get one 50% off at Toys R Us this weekend. I think they are normally priced around $12.00.   So far, Owen has taken a great nap in them!  Maybe this will be the trick to getting him to sleep through the night.  🙂
