Why It’s the Best Time to Buy Baby Clothes

Home Page/ Pregnancy

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

It’s amazing how much changes in the first year. River’s personality has grown so much, and with it, he’s developed an adventurous attitude that has made me thankful for some pretty tough baby clothes. Carter’s Little Baby Basics are soft and comfortable for baby but also tough enough to handle the wear and tear of a growing little one — Like the 12th wash in a row after a diaper blowout or the pants that had a rough day of crawling in the dirt and rocks.

5 Fox Themed Baby Items You’ll Want to Buy for All Your Pregnant Friends

Being Mama/ Home Page/ Kiddo Style/ Pregnancy/ Style

I am a paid Gerber Childrenswear ambassador and this is a sponsored post. All opinions are honest and mine alone. Photos: Joy Lifestyle Photography.

Fox themed baby items are everywhere right now (and I think you’ll see more of them in 2018). Without realizing it, I bought River a little fox Christmas toy as well as a hooded blanket and stuffed animal! So when my Gerber Childrenswear Brand Ambassador onesies arrived in the mail I was stoked to see that they were fox themed and have cool 3-D pieces and textures! You might know Gerber Childrenswear from the plain white onesies used at baby showers for everyone to decorate, but the brand has so much more available, including several new lines in partnership with Target, like the fox onesies I got!

It’s typically talked about either because new parents can’t believe how much it costs, or because it’s the only thing that makes someone’s baby happy. Whatever the reason, it’s such a hit in both Europe and the US that there’s actually more than just the famed teether in the collection! Here are a few of my favorite useful and super cute Sophie la Girafe items (of many) that just might make you obsessed with Sophie la Girafe. Read more

Not only does this room design allow for great color contrast, but it’s gender-neutral and simply gorgeous. Keep reading to see more!  Read more
