Oh boy, I have taken quite the hiatus from blogging as I have been trying to adjust to life as a mama of 2, as well as dealing with Charlotte’s hearing loss diagnosis. This season of life is the most fulfilling by far, but it sure isn’t the easiest! Thank goodness for these basic essentials that you don’t have to second guess!

Osh Kosh- Baby B’Gosh

I totally remember my own mom dressing me in Osh Kosh, and this new baby and toddler line is just as sweet as ever! This little outfit I got for Cam is perfect for the pumpkin patch and corn maze. Use the online code OKBG3352 or retail code 036992 at for 20% off $40+ purchase. Osh Kosh Baby B’Gosh is also available at

Land’s End Diaper Bag

If you have followed me for any amount of time, than you know I’m a sucker for diaper bags. As a mom of 2 now, I am less interested in how fashionable the bag is (although its still very important to me haha), but I am more interested in functionality. I need diaper bags that make sense for two AND look good. This Land’s End bag fits the bill! Lightweight, durable, and easy to wipe clean! I am actually getting my little sister the same one for her upcoming twins because I love it that much! Check it out HERE!

Mustela: Hydra Bebe Body Lotion

My little fair-skinned Irish girls and I are prone to dry, sensitive skin and I have tried just about every lotion on the market. I have added Mustela baby lotion to my list of approved moisturizers. Can be used daily, is hypoallergenic, and natural! Can be purchased HERE using the code BABBLEBOX17 for 20% off.

Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Maximum Strength Jar

This bad boy works (without all of the harsh ingredients many diaper rash creams contain) and it LASTS. Cameron, my oldest, actually just got her first diaper rash a few months ago when she FINALLY started eating fruit- so glad we had Boudreaux’s on hand. Also, just a fun little tidbit, this was stocked in on medication room in the NICU I worked at in San Diego. It was our neonatologists’ go to for these tiny babies with the most sensitive skin. Check it out at! (haha I still giggle at the name butt paste)

Playtex Nursing Bra

Why is it so hard to find a nursing bra that is actually supportive, hides your already monstrous nursing nipples, and is easy to unclasp? Seriously, sometimes I question if a woman even designed some of the ones I have tried. Well Playtex, a brand that has always understood women, has clearly done their research when it comes to what moms need out of a nursing bra. Bonus, this one has fit me from engorgement to emptying with comfy adjustments! Check out all the styles available at


Ok, God bless the creators of this. Strollers are GREAT at protecting the babes from the elements, but what about us poor moms who have to push and steer and can’t hold an umbrella at the same time? Well, my friends, I give you- THE MUMBRELLA! (and I also love the punny name. High five, mumbrella) You can check out this stroller umbrella HERE.

Vichy- Mineral 89

Baby basics aren’t just about the babes, but about us moms too. It is so important that we take care of ourselves so that we can feel great for our kiddos. This face moisturizer smells great, isn’t greasy, and strengthens skin. Visit the website HERE and use the code BABBLEBOXX for 20% off and free shipping (valid until 11/30/2017).

I would love to hear your feedback if you decide to try any of these as well. I am so excited to be back on the blog and share whats going on in our crazy little corner of this saturated momblog world 🙂
