I’m a little over half way through this pregnancy, preparing for baby number three. Although I already have two other babies, I’m still really excited for a third. We’re unsure if we’re going to find out the baby gender
just yet but more about that later! It’s easier to prep everything when you know the gender! After having two babies, I’ve learned that preparing for a baby isn’t just about preparing for the baby. Mom is a huge part of this process, and remember to prepare for you is just as important! When trying for a baby you may find it helpful to use ovulation strips test when your peak fertiltiy is. Visiting https://www.countrywidetesting.com/products/ovulation-strips
may be helpfully for you.
I’ve teamed up with BabbleBoxx to share some amazing products for preparing for baby, without forgetting about mommy too.
serum is a brightening skin corrector that contains 15% pure Vitamin C and Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid. It’s clinically proven to brighten and firm your skin in just 10 days. Self care is so important as a mom, especially through pregnancy and that newborn stage.
I love how easy it is to take up and add this into my skin care routine. Having an anti agin skin care routine is a must in motherhood. The stress and lack of sleep alone can cause aging, it’s so nice knowing that I can easily take care of my skin during this season of motherhood.
Preparing for baby also means preparing for teething!
The Baby Banana Infant Toothbrush is a must for starting a good healthy oral care routine from the beginning. The massaging bristles and soft food grade silicone is perfect for soothing teething gums and removing sugars.
The smoothie soothers fruit tethers are a must for teething babies! They are not only adorable but include different textures and shapes. They’re hollow, chewy and durable, made perfectly for baby.
After going through the teething process twice already, I know how useful these items will be in the near future!!
This time around we’ve decided to go team green, which means we aren’t finding out the sex of the baby! It’s been a surprisingly easy process to wait, and making everything even more exciting. Preparing for baby without knowing is a little more challenging, but luckily there are plenty of gender neutral choices out there!
I love that Baby B’gosh has adorable gender neutral choices baby!
This little outfit will be perfect for all of our winter outings! I love how adorable it is, and how comfortable I know baby will be. I absolutely love how soft this outfit is!

Speaking of comfort, we can’t forget about mom. After all the uncomfortable moments of pregnancy, labor, recovery and breastfeeding, we have to do all we can to stay as comfortable as possible.
The Playtext Maternity Panty is a great place to start. They are so soft, stretchy and designed for everyday comfort. The tagless style just proves that they really thought of everything here!
For after baby (or before) the Playtex Nursing Bra is perfect. The flex fit design is designed to fit your body as it changes! This makes it perfect for before during or after pregnancy! This bra is also incredibly soft and comfortable – just like the panties!
Although we have plenty of hand me down towels and toys, every baby deserves a little something of their own.
I love Apple Park products because they are so soft, amazing quality and organic! This hooded infant towel is not only organic, but could not be cuter!
Nursing can be anywhere from easy and natural to incredibly difficult or impossible. So far breastfeeding has been so easy for me, but that’s not to say there hasn’t been some challenges.
Being prepared is one of the best ways to have success when nursing. I’ve always loved Bamboobies products, and I’m so excited to have more as I prepare to nurse baby number three!
Their nursing pads are so incredibly thin, ultra-soft and absorbent! I leak a lot, especially at night those first few months, so having a great re-usable nursing pad is so important!
I also love their 100% organic nipple balm. This stuff is so helpful for those first couple of months. It’s common to have sore and cracked nipples, and having something that is safe for mommy and baby is so important! All ingredients are safe for your nursing baby!
The Bamboobies nursing shawl is something I haven’t tried before, and I am so excited to have! The shawl is open, unlike most nursing covers, therefore you can get the coverage you need, since baby doesn’t always want to be completely covered!

As well as all of these lovely products, it may also be worth looking into personal loans. We all know that having a baby is not in the slightest cheap, and if you’re struggling for money, it may be worth having a look around. My friend recently used personalloan.co
to get a loan suited to her. There are plenty of different companies that can offer loans suited to you, but make sure you consider this if you need to!
