As a first-time mom, I’ve relied a lot on forums and advice from other moms to help me figure out what I need to make this new chapter in my life start off as smoothly as possible.
Even still, it can get a little overwhelming when you’re just looking at different products online. Everything looks like something you’ll eventually need! Not only that, I’m the type of person that enjoys being able to sample something before I buy it.
That’s why I felt like the pregnancy gods had answered my prayers when I received all these amazing products in my Bump, Baby & You Edition of the Babbleboxx.
Check out the products, my thoughts about them and purchasing information below!
Fisher-Price Premium Auto Rock ‘n Play™ Sleeper with SmartConnect™
I was so excited to receive this product! I’ve been looking at different baby seats and this one is so perfect for us. The Rock ‘n Play™ Sleeper is portable (so we’ll definitely be bringing it with us to MommyCon) and features a light show projection, two little toys that dangle for baby to play with, soothing sounds, rocking, vibrations and 12 songs. The best part? It’s all hands-free because it connects to your smartphone or device.
It was really easy to assemble, Daddy was able to get it put together in about 30 minutes or so. The portable, inclined sleeper retails for $120 and can be purchased at http://bit.ly/2jVWQLU.
Munchkin STEP Diaper Pail
I never thought to purchase a diaper pail for baby because of the old, unattractive ones that I’ve seen other people use. You know the ones with the handle that doesn’t really open so you have to stick your hands inside it a little? Yuck!
The Munchkin STEP Diaper Pail is a very modern pail that will look nice in any nursery, no matter what the color scheme and theme is. It also features an Arm & Hammer lavender scented baking soda cartridge to help with odor control. Let’s not forget the foot pedal…so no touching the pail! You can purchase the diaper pail at http://bit.ly/29ZWkfJ and for every diaper pail purchase, Munchkin will plant a tree to support their mission to reduce gassy emissions inside and outside the nursery.
Munchkin Miracle Stainless Steel 360 Sippy Cup
Our little one will have to wait a while to get his little hands on the Miracle 360º Cup – that’s if his Dad doesn’t try to use the cups first! These have to be the sleekest sippy cups I’ve ever seen. The cup keeps drinks cool for 15 hours, so it’s perfect for road trips or days when you’ll be spending a lot of time out of the house. The 360º rim is completely spill-proof and helps to support normal muscle development in a child’s mouth, which is extremely important. The sippy cup is available for purchase at http://bit.ly/2jzI01L.
Munchkin Shine Stainless Steel Bottle Brush & LATCH Bottle
I knew early on that I would be breastfeeding and pumping so I was happy to see the Munchkin LATCH bottle in the Babbleboxx. It’s designed to mimic the breastfeeding experience with its accordion style nipple moving and pumping just like the breast for a correct and continuous latch. It should ease the transition from breast to bottle and back, which is important for me because I know that if baby doesn’t latch correctly, breastfeeding can be a challenge. For more details or to purchase a LATCH bottle, visit http://bit.ly/1DFhF4j.
If you’re using bottles, you definitely must have a bottle brush. The Shine Stainless Steel Bottle Brush features replaceable brush heads and each set includes one complete bottle and nipple brush and one replacement brush head. I like the way this product is designed. Like the diaper pail and sippy cups, it’s just so modern and can “fit in” to any design theme you have going in your home. You can purchase the bottle brush set at http://bit.ly/2j62FY4.
Sesame Street Naturals B is for Bubble Bath, Tip, Tummy & Toe 2-in-1 & Spray Me Lotion
Bath time = play time for babies (and parents too!) and Sesame Street Naturals products are safe for that precious, sensitive skin. Their formula is paraben, phthalate, tear and sulfate-free and contains the ABC superfoods of skin health (apples, blueberries and carrots) to help repair, hydrate, soften and protect the skin.
I’m really excited about using the Spray Me Lotion (and I may or may not have already tried it on myself, shhh!) because I’ve never seen sprayable lotion before! The unique trigger sprayer allows for a quick, easy and even lotion application and it gives your little one an opportunity to participate. All three of these products are scented very lightly with a natural fragrance and are enriched with moisturizing ingredients like aloe, avocado, coconut oil and shea butter.
If you buy 2 of these products, you can save $4! Click here for more information on the discount.
Mustela Diaper Rash Cream 123, Hydra Bebe Body Lotion and Stretch Mark Prevention Cream

Mustela’s products are 100% safe for mother and child and are specially formulated to minimize the risk of allergic reactions. To purchase any of these products, visit http://bit.ly/1N2fBHg.

Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Rich Cream
Last but not least, something for mama!
With all the focus on making sure the baby has everything he needs and everyone is ready for his arrival, it’s easy to forget about myself. So when I saw this product, I was happy to have something just for me. It contains Vichy Thermal Spa Water, it’s 100% paraben free and evenly distributes water to balance the skin and help lock water in all facial zones. It also has a velvety, soft finish because the creamy texture melts immediately into your skin.

If you’re on the hunt for baby shower gifts or welcome gifts for mom, dad and baby, any of these would be well received by a mommy-to-be. I’m happy to have them and I definitely feel a lot more confident and prepared to start my journey to motherhood and my anticipation for my son is growing more and more by the day!
