DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cake with Surprise

I made this Diaper Cake way back for my sister-in-law's first child's baby shower in 2019 and never shared it! I can't believe that I never did because I was so excited with how it turned out. I love the idea of diaper cakes because they make cute shower decor while still being functional.

DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cake with Surprise

This one I made with an exciting twist. Traditionally people would either fill the middle with tons of rolled up diapers, baby lotion, or even baby formula, but I decided to put a bottle of my sister-in-law's favorite wine for her to find. She loved it so much and it is still one of the most talked about gifts she received.

Unique Baby Shower Gift Ideas for The New Mom

I know so many ladies that are having babies this year. Whether it is their first or not, I have rounded up some of unique products to give to the mom-to-be for herself to enjoy or for her to enjoy using with her new baby.

Some products were received for consideration. This post contains affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

Taking Baby Anywhere with GoPod Travel Activity Seat from KidCo

I received complimentary products to feature in my Baby Shower Gift Guide. All opinions are my own.

My cousin has a new baby. He was unplanned and she had already sold or donated all of her baby stuff. So when I saw her over Christmas, I knew I needed to help her out. Her little man likes to sit up and look at the world, but he is a chunk and it isn't practical to carry him around all the time. That's why I decided to reach out to KidCo. I had seen their GoPod Travel Activity Seat before and just knew it would be perfect for her needs.

My cousin is a busy mom to three kiddos aged four and younger, so she needed something that was light weight and could easily travel on the go. The GoPod Travel Activity Seat is perfect for her because it only weighs 7 pounds and is designed to fold and go. The attached floor pad keeps baby’s feet on a clean surface whether at the camp fire, on a picnic, watching the big kids play sports, or outside in a muddy area like we were.

Keeping Track of a Breastfed Baby's Weight with EatSmart Scales

My son was diagnosed borderline anemic when he was about a year old. You would have never guessed it because he was such a chunky baby, but he was actually always in the 25 percentile for baby boys the same age. When my daughter was a baby, she was in the same percentile, but was never diagnosed with any issues. They both had lip tie.

My son was always so hungry. I had to start supplementing with formula when he was about eight months old. He had no interest in baby food and he would choke on many table foods we offered, so nursing was his main source of nutrition. My doctor's advice to combat his anemia was to just feed him whenever/whatever he wanted (which of course I was already doing) and then he was prescribed iron supplements. His anemia was an issue for a while and so I started keeping track of his weight to make sure he wasn't losing any.

Safe and Close Sleep for Baby + HALO Giveaway

With so many baby products on the market today, is it any wonder expecting moms and dads feel overwhelmed. When it comes to safe infant sleep, HALO has the answer for parents. HALO has introduced the new HALO® Bassinest® glide sleeper and at $159.99, it is a great way to get a premium product at a more budget friendly price.

Bedtime Routine Stories from Silver Dolphin Books

We love reading in our house. Before it was part of my daughter's homework to read nightly, it has always been a part of our quiet down routine before bed. No screens, just baths, pajamas, teeth brushing, and books. That is the way I great up and I love sharing it with my children. Everyone needs some wind down time. Yes, we read books through out the day. My kids love brining me books and asking me to read them. They know I will no matter what, but there is just something I cherish about our night time routine. No matter where we are in any our daily adventures, we enjoy our nightly routine with books.

I love working with Silver Dolphin books. Each night, as part of their routine, they get to pick out a story they want to read. I received some great new titles that my kids are enjoying and yours might too.

Keep Baby Smiling with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste

This conversation is sponsored by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. All opinions are my own.

There is nothing like a smiling baby. My little man is two now, but he always has a smile on his face. We are working on potty training, but it hasn't been easy. He is still in diapers most of the time and not very willing to participate in the potty training process. He will even hide his mess from us. With all of that going on, I want to keep him smiling.

This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of Baby Magic. All opinions are my own.

Natural Ways to Reduce Heat Rash #ButtPasteMom

This post is brought to you by Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own. #ButtPasteMom

My son gets heat rash. He always has, even before his little body was able to sweat properly. This irritates his eczema. He was born in the Spring, so all summer long his sweet baby skin would get heat rash, especially in the crevices of his chubby legs.

Natural Ways to Reduce Heat Rash

I would try to keep him as dry as possible to avoid heat rash, but that wasn't always realistic. We live in the pool and lake all summer long with even a trip to the beach. Plus he always been on the sweatier side.
