2016 Mom-To-Be Holiday Gift Guide

2016 Mom-To-Be Holiday Gift Guide
I am already a mom and am expecting my second baby in April! Many of the items that we will need for baby, we luckily already have from when we had my daughter. There are some things that I will be purchasing and have bought (or reviewed) during this pregnancy in preparation for the baby coming.

One thing in particular has been maternity clothes. I was pregnant with my daughter mostly in the summer and this time, it is the opposite. I have had to stock up on long sleeved tops, sweaters, long dresses, etc. to fill in my wardrobe. Tank tops are not going to cut it with this freezing Michigan weather.

Other items that I included in the gift guide are products that I am buying, want or have tried for baby. Good items to get for moms-to-be are maternity items and of course, items for the baby. I hope that this gift guide helps give you some great ideas for shopping for the new mom or mama-to-be in your life!

PinkBlush Maternity Dress

I seriously spent an hour looking at clothing on the PinkBlush site. They have so many beautiful maternity dresses, tops, pants and more. I instantly fell in love with this Ivory Floral Draped 3/4 Sleeve Maternity Maxi Dress when I saw it. I knew that it would be perfect for church, holiday parties, maternity photos and my baby "sprinkle" my mom and sister are throwing for me. It makes me feel beautiful which is nice during pregnancy when it is easy to feel bad that none of your clothing fits.

Earth Mama Angel Baby Postpartum Products

After having a baby, things can be very painful. I am all about reducing pain as much as possible and love the products from Earth Mama Angel Baby especially the nipple butter (trust me mamas to be!!), new mama bottom balm and new mama bottom spray. These are effective and make recovery a bit easier. They are safe, hospital recommended, organic and natural. I felt good not using crazy products on my body. Also, we are a big fan of the Earth Mama Angel Baby baby products as well.

Milk Nursingwear Nursing Dress

I breastfed Adalyn and plan to do the same with baby #2. With having the baby in April and then having to spend lots of time nursing during the summer months, I want to make sure to have plenty of discreet clothing. We love to go to tons of places with Adalyn and I'm sure we will continue to do so (for the most part) when we have the baby so having a cute dress like this that is nursing friendly is important to me. I am not super modest but don't want to be flashing anyone either! The tie two-ways nursing dress is soft, can tie in the front or back and has openings for nursing.

Gaya Maternity Fitness Clothing

You know I still love to workout during my pregnancy and I found the cutest top from Gaya. I was reading about this brand online how it is a great fitness maternity brand and had to try it for myself. The running maternity top is so comfortable and I love that it is not your typical black or grey like most pregnancy workout clothes are. The capris are comfortable and not too tight in the stomach which is important.

Balboa Baby Crib Sheets

In the beginning, babies may wet through or poop through their sheets a lot. It is a good idea to have a lot of sheets on hand so that you can change them quickly- sometimes it may be in the middle of the night. These crib sheets from Balboa Baby are soft and match our nursery perfectly!

Bumbo Multi Seat

When Adalyn was a baby, we had the original Bumbo at my mom's house and it was perfect for sitting her up before she could actually sit-up. I was sent the Bumbo Multi-Seat to try out and I know that it will be perfect for our second baby to have at our house. Adalyn loved to sit-up early so this is nice to have the child next to you as you cook or at the table when you are eating. This seat is a three-in-one seat that can be on the floor, used as a booster or as a feeding seat. You can use it up to three years old. It has a seatbelt and removable tray as well.

Croozer Bike Trailer

I wrote about how much we love our Croozer bike trailer/stroller. We used it almost everyday this spring and summer. Adalyn loves it and it will be perfect for our second baby as well. It rides so smoothly and we love it for running, walking and biking. It is so, so easy to switch from a bike trailer to a stroller. I got the infant insert for when the baby is little and cannot sit-up on their own. Can't wait to see my two kids in there together!

Gerber Burp Cloths

I am trying to rack my brain to make sure I get everything that I need for baby ahead of time. I remember that Adalyn spit-up a lot and we went through burp cloths like crazy! I just picked up a pack of these burp cloths so we are well stocked when baby gets here. I'm sure we will use them!


The giveaway will be for 2 crib sheets from Balboa Baby, a $35 Milk Nursingwear Gift Card and $50 to Pink Blush to one lucky winner!!
