Baby Shower Gift Ideas with Dreft + #Amazinghood Giveaway

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

 It is Baby Shower season! I know so many people who are having babies! I'm so excited that I get to introduce them to some of my favorite baby products, some they may have heard of and some they haven't! Understanding that laundry needs for little ones change as they grow and develop, Dreft, the #1 baby laundry detergent choice of pediatricians, the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for baby clothes and a trusted brand for more than 80 years, has expanded its product line-up to better meet the different life-stage needs of babies and their families.

Dreft welcomes families to the big, messy, beautiful journey of #Amazinghood with its new line of laundry care products. Babies go through a lot of changes within their first few years, leading to different needs for different life stages - especially when it comes to their laundry. Now with Dreft's new line of laundry care products, families can focus less on the mess and more on the amazing moments they share together.

DIY New Mom Care Package

My sister-in-law is pregnant with her third baby, so I have decided to give her a "New Mom Care Package". My sister made me one with each of my kids and they have been my favorite gift each time, hands down. The great thing about this care package is that it is perfect even for the mom who has everything because these things are going to be needed time and time again. These are also items that go beyond diapers, shampoos, etc. These are items that the mother-to-be may not have thought to put on her registry.

This post was sponsored by @GBChildUsa as part of a Blog Blast Activation for Influence Central.
With my sister-in-law expecting her third baby, we have been exploring baby products again. It is so much fun and there are so many new things each year. Since her baby is due late July/early August, we have been thinking about what will make vacationing with an infant easier since we go on our annual family vacation in September/October during fall break. I recently came across the gb Pockit and we both fell in love instantly.
Designed for frequent travelers, the gb Pockit Stroller quickly folds into an ultra-compact package shaped like a handbag for simple transport on airplanes and more.

Make Mom Life Fashionable with Laiya Diaper Bag & Clutch

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

I was so excited when I was sent the Laiya Deluxe Diaper Bag and Carrying Clutch because diaper bags have come a long way in the last few years. They are becoming more and more fashionable without the weighty cost. I remember searching online for a diaper bag with both my babies that didn't SCREAM diaper bag and was also in a reasonable budget, but could never find one.

I have taken this bag a few places now and get compliments wherever I go. It's a gorgeous canvas tote style bag with two sets of straps that give you plenty of options for carrying this diaper bag. I can use the shorter handles to carry the Laiya Diaper Bag over my arm or shoulder or the longer strap to wear it cross body, freeing up my hands and arms for baby (and everything else!). It includes a matching changing pad as well.

Make Traveling with Baby Easy Thanks to BagyBed

I received this product complimentary to provide an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Have you ever been somewhere and your little one wanted to nap, but you didn't have a place for them to sleep? Like a friend's house who doesn't have a baby? Or even the beach? I have carried my huge pack-n-play places, but when my daughter was a baby I was the only one who had a baby and carrying everything and the kitchen sink is just not practical. That's why I'm loving BagyBed!

BagyBed is a 3 in 1 essential product which combines a diaper bag with a diaper changing station and a travel bassinet. The perfect practical solution that makes traveling with a baby whole easier and much more!

Here is What Makes BagyBed an Essential Accessory for Mom and Dad:

Snuggle Nest Surround XL from Baby Delight Giveaway, Ends 12/28

Welcome to the Snuggle Nest Surround XL from Baby Delight Giveaway, hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro
The New Snuggle Nest Surround XL is designed to offer a greater sense of security for newborns when co-sleeping with parents. The new extended length and slightly narrowed foot area offers a comfortable space for your baby, and a sleeker profile in the adult bed. The Snuggle Nest Surround XL is comprised of two rigid, vented wall units at each end, which help to block adult bedding and create an exclusive sleeping area for baby. Two flexible side panels built into the soft quilted cover, are filled with thick structural mesh, and allow easy and comfortable access to baby, while forming an air barrier from adult bodies and bedding. Also included are a firm mattress with a wraparound sheet and optional 1.5” incline wedge. By placing the Snuggle Nest against the headboard of the adult bed, infants are more removed from the “rollover zone’ and bedding. For additional comfort and soothing, a Sound & Light unit is included, featuring music and familiar womb sounds, as well as a soft light for nighttime checks on baby. The Snuggle Nest folds quickly and compactly for handy portability for parents on the go. Not for use in cribs or bassinets.

Welcome to the Combi Infant Shuttle Travel System Giveaway, hosted by Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro
Do you have a new baby on the way? If so, a quality travel system is probably at the top of your wish list.

The infant car seat provides deep side wings with True-Safe side impact protection for safe crash force distribution and a built-in anti-rebound bar to minimize rotational forces in front and rear collisions. Installation of this car seat is a breeze with built-in lock-offs, wide belt paths, level indicators, and premium push button LATCH connectors. When on the go, attach the infant car seat to the Shuttle stroller, which features a one-step linked brake, a one-hand self-standing fold, an extended canopy with peek-a-boo window, and removable child and parent cup holders. Keep essential items stored within reach with the large canopy pocket and easy-to-access basket.

Summer Travels with GooGah Baby View Mirror

I received this product complimentary for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.

We are still rear facing my son, although he has picked up this habit of screaming in the car because he was bored. It was a playful scream and I think it was just to get his sister to pay attention to him. I have tried giving him toys to play with, but he throws them all down. LOL So when I was sent the GooGah Baby Car Mirror to review, I was pretty excite because I thought that this might be something that would keep him entertained while I was driving.

I loved being able to see him in the car. It also made it where he would no longer scream while I was driving down the road. He would just make faces at himself in the mirror. The extra large wide angle convex infant car mirror is shatter proof so that every new mom can feel secure with no worries. Installation was very easy once I paid attention to the directions. You can view my installation in the video below.

No More Sliding with Creeper Crawlers

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

My son is still crawling although he is taking steps here and there. But at my in-laws where there is all hard wood floor he likes to mostly crawl still because he's not only unsure of the surface, I think he feels it's faster to crawl. But if he is wearing anything with pants, he slips and slides everywhere.
That's why I am loving this new product from the UK called Easy Grip Crawl Suit from Creeper Crawlers. We recently received one to review and it absolutely fantastic!

But not only can it help when your baby is crawling on hard wood floors or linoleum, but Creeper Crawlers can help your little one get a better grip to actually get in the crawling position. They come in multiple colors, perfect for every baby.
