Once you become a mom, all you want to do is buy ALLTHEBABYTHINGS. That’s probably the reason why both my toddler and soon-to-be newborn both have nicer wardrobes than I do 😉 but baby things are just so fun to buy! I know I’m not the only mama that feels this way so when I find amazing products for little ones I love to share the wealth. Luckily, this time I also found a few mama essentials as well because moms deserve nice things too, right?!
Here are a few essentials for both mama + baby to help get you through the fall and winter months:
Osh Kosh – Baby B’Gosh
Both of my boys have closets full of clothes from Osh Kosh. I love that they carry not only all the basics like onesies and tees but they also have the cutest little sweaters, button downs, overalls, etc… I mean seriously, is there anything cuter than baby suspenders?! I also love that Baby B’Gosh now carries sizes all the way up to 5T! This means that I get to match my boys for even longer, right? 😉
Is this not the perfect fall outfit for Mason?? I can just picture him wearing this to Thanksgiving dinner and stealing everyone’s heart!

Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Maximum Strength Jar
If you have a baby in diapers, you need this! I can’t tell you how many different diaper rash creams I tried out with my first baby before we finally found Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. Mason has such sensitive skin so finding a diaper rash cream that is pediatrician recommended with no harsh ingredients was essential for us. Since I’m about to have two little ones in diapers I make sure to always stay stocked up and apply at the first sign of a diaper rash.
Playtex Nursing Bra Collection
One thing I definitely did not prepare enough for with Mason was nursing! I was so naive and didn’t realize how impractical it would be to still wear my regular bras while nursing. This time around, I made sure to be prepared by finding the best nursing bras. I try to stock up on everything I need before baby arrives but with nursing, it’s hard to tell what size bra you will need once your milk comes in (TMI? Oh well 😉 ). That’s why I love that this Playtex nursing bra can span two cup sizes and one band size! It also has front adjustable clasps and supportive, Cool Comfort fabric to keep you both cool and comfortable, and a gorgeous lace detail to still give you a little feminine touch.
Do you know how difficult it is to hold an umbrella with one hand while trying to push a stroller with the other hand while staying dry and not running anyone over?? It’s next to impossible which is why the Mumbrella is the best invention ever. The Mumbrella stroller umbrella attaches to your stroller to keep you protected from the rain and sun (totally hands free!) while pushing your stroller. It’s water resistant and 50UV coated and I wish I knew about this sooner. This is definitely one of those products that will make #momlife SO MUCH EASIER.

Mustela: Hydra Bébé ® Body Lotion
I’m incredibly adamant about my own skincare routine so you can only imagine how important it is to me to keep my babies skin soft, smooth and hydrated. The Hydra Bébé body lotion is hypoallergenic with 97% of ingredients from natural origin and also preserves baby skin’s cellular richness. After using Mustela, I’ll never use anything else for my kids!

Vichy – Mineral 89
I’m such a skincare junkie so finding new products that I love is so exciting to me! It’s also so easy as a mom to forget to take care of yourself so I make sure to take a few minutes out of the day to pamper myself (and I always encourage other moms to do this too!). Vichy Mineral 89 moisturizer makes my face feel so soft and hydrated! It has Mineralizing Thermal Water from the French Volcanoes to strengthen skin against internal and external aggressors and keeps you looking less stressed and fatigued (thanks to all those sleepless nights!).

Land’s End: Diaper Bag
Every mom needs a good diaper bag. Since I’ll now be carrying things for two little ones, I’ve been looking for a baby bag that’s lightweight, durable, has easy-access and still looks stylish. This Land’s End Diaper Bag checks off all of those boxes for me! The webbed strap is also adjustable, removable, and is designed to loop around your stroller handle- so convenient! I’ve actually already started to pack this baby up to take to the hospital with me for baby #2!
