Even though I already have 2 other babies buying baby gear is still so intimidating!! Kate is 3 1/2 and baby stuff has evolved like crazy! There are so many cool brands and gadgets that are new that I know nothing about.

I decided we needed a new infant car seat cause ours has been through 2 babies, billions of blow outs and way too much spit up to measure basically its DISGUSTING! Even though its washed and clean I want something new for our third babe! Being the 3rd girl means so many hand me downs. She deserves something to be new and not totally gross haha! Plus new things are just more fun!

I started searching there were so many awesome products it is so intimidating! Luckily The Baby Cubby came in and saved the day! They only sale the best of the best in baby gear! Basically its like consumer report for baby stuff and its amazing! All the best looking high quality stuff plus they price match! Even with Amazon you guys!! The baby cubby has made it so easy to find the best of everything and what is best for you specifically providing you with all the info you need so you can make an informed decision especially when it comes to the safety of you baby. For parents there is nothing more important than that! The Definitive Car Seat Buying Guide became my new best friend!

Lucky for me I have lots of friends who have new babies and were able to tell me their experiences with the carseats and what they loved about them. between the baby cubby guide and my very wise pals I’ve narrowed it down to my top two.

Nuna Pipa Blackberry is my top contender. I mean just look at it! Its so sleek and such a gorgeous color! Not to mention its one of the lightest on the market! Which is super attractive cause these suckers get so heavy with a chunky baby inside. I’ll be herding around 3 little girls and I cannot be weighed down with a huge heavy car seat! I love products that make being a mom a little easier. Plus I mean, its so pretty! I feel like we keep circling around to the look of it but… I can’t stop staring!!

britax_b-safe_elite_car_seat_-_vibe.jpg

Britax B safe  is another contender. It has immaculate safety ratings. Side impact tested, steel frame. I mean like I mentioned above safety of your tiny little babe is the most important thing! Plus it is also super cute ( not purple) but a really good neutral. PLUS its on sale right now!!

max-cosi_2015_mico_max_30_-_devoted_black_1__1.jpg

Maxi-Cosi Mico Max 30 rounds out my top 3. Another super light car seat and the handle is designed to be easy to carry. But the clincher for this seat is that it wins the award for the EASIEST to clean! No need for unthreading the harness those things are a pain in the butt! So this baby girl can have all the blow outs she wants. The fabric is self wicking, it deodorizes and draws liquid away from baby keeping her dryish and happy. Besides this bad boy is so easy to clean it aint no thang!

I’m not sure how I’ll be able to choose. If you guys have strong feelings about any of these I would love to hear it!!

Albion Fit Swim

I feel like its very important that I say this is a non maternity swim suit! I think Ive said it before but this is most likely our last baby so I dont want to invest tons of money in maternity clothes to never be able to wear them again. You better belive I’ll be wearing this bad boy again next year! sans baby bump.

This Mary Anne One Piece from Albion Fit seriously fits like a dream and I have worn it to the pool almost exclusively this entire summer! If you are a one piece wearer you know the struggle! The top is always slipping down and the bottom is always riding up! Not with this swimsuit! I can chase my kids around with out any fear or being self conscious that unflattering parts of me are showing! Everything stays in place even being 5 months pregnant!

Stackable bands with J. Brooks Jewlers

That One Blonde Chick. Fall maternity

I have teamed up for such an exciting collaboration! Cause HELLO diamonds!! J. Brooks Jewelers has their huge Summer slash sale happening right now through September 3rd. Select items are 30-70% off! They are a local company with high standards for their jewelry and only carry high quality EVERYTHING! Ive been in several times and there are seriously killer deals happening right now. My birthday is coming right up in a few weeks so HINT HINT to my husband. haha!

I had the pleasure of meeting the owner of J. Brooks John and his 2 darling daughters and I walked away not being able to stop thinking about how awesome, kind and helpful they were! One of the daughters went to high school with my husband. It was fun to catch up with her and to hear stories of the good old days at Cottonwood high!

Right when I walked in the store I headed straight for the dainty stackable rings! My cute sister in law Mckenzie introduced me to the cutest idea of adding a ring with every new baby in your family! A different style or metal for each child! I’m kind of loving that idea and I’m sad I didn’t think of it with my first two babies! I’ve got some catching up to do!! I chose 2 white gold pave bands a rose gold and yellow gold diamond crusted bands. I think they all look perfect and represent how family members are all different but work perfectly when all together!

I have 2 more posts with J. Brooks coming up! Stay tuned!
