When it comes to my baby, I spare no expense (please just don’t tell my husband 😉 ), so as I was pondering the topic of Blankies, I really wanted to make sure if there was going to be some lifelong attachment to a blanket, that it be the awesomest coziest and most extravagant blanket out there. Enter Little Giraffe, the makers of celebrity endorsed baby blankets (Rachel Zoes fave- that’s all you had to say).. Little Giraffe makes a couple different models all with different loft/pile.. the luxe is my favorite, as its got a very silky smooth faux fur center that has the perfect weightiness to it. The edges are bordered with satin and my son loves rubbing his fingers through the fur, and tries to mouth the satiny edge. The color is flax, which is cute and chic without being too femme for my little manly man. And if he doesn’t bond with it, its okay because I’ve been eyeing it as a new throw in my living room (fingers crossed). $85 for the 29 x 35 at littlegiraffe.com
My son loves to flail his arms around in his sleep. Ive tried swaddles, sleep sacks, holding his arms down while I hover above him trying to lull him back into sleep. I picked up the Merlins Magic Sleep Suit with hope, that this one device would allow me to walk away from him without worrying that he would flail himself awake once again.
This thing is the bomb.
Yesterday, we watched Resident Evil, while Ethan laid asleep in his suit. It was the first time he actually didnt wake up during the movie. The first movie my husband and I were able to enjoy all the way through (in 3 months!). Thats worth cash money.
The thing looks like a huge bunting, but the magic is in the construction – its built to make the baby feel like hes being held, which is exactly how my son likes to fall asleep. $69.95 online for two http://www.magicsleepsuit.com
All diapers should be this cute on the outside, since they’re so ugly on the inside 😉
These little beauts are Honest Diapers. Cute little eco friendly diaps, from Celebrimom Jessica Alba. My son, Ethan loves em. And his buns get all sorts of attention when he wears them, but they arent just cute – made from plant based materials and good for the environment stuff – you can feel good as everyone is oohing and ahhing over your babies cute little behind.
