Chic Shawl


If you are (or have been) a breastfeeding Mama, then you are aware of the different nursing covers out there.  Believe it or not, the shawl pictured above is actually one of them!

With my son, I used a classic apron-style nursing cover – and I could never get comfortable with it  – I always felt like the “girls” were hanging out or people could see what was going on…I’m pretty sure that is all about to change!

I was lucky enough to be sent one of these Chic Nursing Shawl by Bamboobies – and I am so excited to try it out!

Made from bamboo and organic cotton, the shawl is super soft and looks NOTHING like a nursing cover (which I love)!  They come in black, fern, or blackberry and are $34.99.

Magical Moments

I was lucky enough to get invited to the Disney Baby “Expect the Magic” event last week, where I was able to have a sneak peek at some of the new Disney Baby products!

Not only were Tigger and Winnie the Pooh there (which was VERY exciting for our family), but the products did not disappoint!

A stand out this year was the new Disney Baby Paint Line (which features magical elements like confetti and glitter)!

In terms of gift ideas, here were a few of my favorites:

1. Character Cups:  I loved these sippys – they sort of resemble the” lollacup,” but in a Disney sort of way.

2. Nemo Gear:  Super cute onesies and a cozy bath robe and slipper set!

3. Hooded Towels: Towels make a great gift-and what little munchkin wouldn’t want a Tigger or Pooh hooded towel?!

4. Blanket Set:  Mickey Mouse stuffed animal plus a cozy blanket – great new baby gift!
