BeautyCounter Baby Products

If you are looking for cleaner, safer products for your little one’s I could not recommend BeautyCounter’s Baby line more! We use the kid’s line for Sutton now, and I used the baby products when he was younger. The Daily Protective Balm has helped with Sawyer’s eczema breakout this summer, and I use the gentle All-Over Baby Wash daily with the Soothing Oil after bath. And of course you can’t forget the everyday use of the Calming Diaper Rash Cream!

It is nice to know what I am putting on the little guys each day to keep them safe from harmful chemicals! If you have any questions about BeautyCounter please feel free to reach out!

UppaBaby Mesa

When I was researching carseats in 2016, I wanted something that we could use in another car without a base. Since both of our parents live close and if we traveled, I wanted the ease of taking the carseat, but not having to haul a base around too. The UppaBaby Mesa was one of two carseats which allowed you to use it in a car without the base. We have loved this carseat for both boys. It’s safe, lightweight and easy to transport, plus we also got the UppaBaby Cruz stroller. I am amazed at how light this stroller is and keep it in my car for quick trips to the mall or doctor.

BabyBjorn Quilted Bouncer

As Covid hit, I felt the need to have some sort of bouncer for Sawyer to sit in. He loved to be more upright, but we also needed some free hands. This was the best purchase I made during the shut down! He still loves it! We could transport it with us outside, to grandparents house and from room to room. He plays with the toys more now, but loves sitting to watch big brother in it while he plays outside!


Though we are still learning how to wait until our light turns yellow (Sutton’s favorite color), we have loved the Hatch! We now have two, one in each boy’s room. We worked with Sutton on the colors before moving him to a big boy bed, but with all the changes that took place it took a little longer for him to understand the light. He loves to tell us he slept until his light was yellow! He does do well with it at nap time, and I am hoping to work with Sawyer on it from an earlier age. It’s also nice that I can adjust it right from my phone!

Ollie Swaddle

A must! It took me a few weeks to utilize the Ollie Swaddle with Sawyer. He loved having his hands out like big brother and cried every time I tried to tuck them away. I finally used the Ollie Swaddle when he was closer to falling asleep and this really helped get him to sleep through the night (or longer stretches). He definitely learned to wiggle those little arms out and once he was able to get one out he woke himself up, but if I got it tight enough keeping them tucked away helped him sleep better!


Como Tomo Bottles

These bottles have been the only one’s we used for both boys! I introduced a bottle around 3 weeks for both of them. They didn’t take one consistently until they were a little older, but wanted to make sure they would take one so mama could have a little bit of a break! Sutton was in full-time daycare at 3 months, so I knew he would need to take a bottle on the regular. The Como Tomo were a great transition and both boys took to them pretty easily.

Zutano Cozy Fleece Booties

Ya’ll these were a life saver! I just used little socks for Sutton, but he was born in March. Since Sawyer was due in January, I knew I wanted something that would stay on his little feet to keep them warm during the colder months. We used these almost daily and I have several in the larger sizes to use this Fall. They stay on their little feet and keep them warm plus once he starts crawling or walking they have little pads to help with gripping!

MAM Pacifiers

We tried various pacifiers this go round. With Sutton he took a pacifier and his thumb off and on the first 4 months then decided he didn’t need one. Sawyer took a paci almost from the get go, but preferred the MAM Pacifier over all the others. He usually only uses it to go to sleep and doesn’t need it throughout the day which is nice!

These are just a few of my favorite items we have had for the boys as newborns!
