Benefits Of Baby Wearing

Lila’s Shoesย //ย Baby Tula Toddler Carrier

Hi Everyone!

It is no secret that I love baby wearing. I have been wearing Lila since she was a newborn and I can attribute much of our bond to it. We have tried out a lot of different carriers together in our two and half years of baby wearing from frontward facing only carriers to multi facing carriers to wraps to slings and everything in between. Right now Lila weighs about 30 pounds and was having less and less space in our old carrier. We switched to Tula Baby a few months ago using one of their Free To Grow Carriers. The first time I put it on Lila fell asleep within minutes and had a nice long two hour nap in it. I love having Lila nap in the carrier because that means I can get stuff done while knowing that my baby is safe and sound.

“A Child Does Not Know What Direction He Is Going, But When He Is Attached To You, He Doesn’t Feel Lost.” -Gordon Neufeld

I recently came across this quote and it really stuck with me how true that feels. When I am holding her close she has such a calm to her that she doesn’t have at any other time.

I always knew baby wearing was for me, because it was in my mama bear gut. It always felt right for me and Lila as a baby was instantly calm if she was put in a carrier. After doing some research I came to learn that there really are some amazing benefits other than just that warm and fuzzy feeling of having your little one close to you.

1. Less Crying

Did you know that babies that are carried cry 43% less than babies that are not carried. And in the evening hours that number jumps to 54% – Don’t these numbers make you want to run and put your baby in a carrier? No one likes to hear their baby cry.

2. Breastfeeding

This is a big one for us. Lila always will breastfeed if she is the carrier and the best part is that she can breastfeed practically anywhere. She always hated doing that whole hiding her a blanket thing, so instead I would put her in the carrier and pop the hood over her. If there is one thing I couldn’t imagine my life as a mom without it’s breastfeeding the in the carrier.

3. Handsfree Mommin’

Whether they are asleep or not you can do anything you need to do handsfree. When Lila was little she would let me do anything as long as she was being carried. The best part is when she fell asleep and I could do anything I needed to do leaving me feeling productive and leaving her feeling cozy sleeping through it all.

4. Bonding

According to research worn babies are given a sense of security and affection. This helps to improve their neurological development. When worn babies are in tune to your heart rate, breathing, and your movements. This encourages baby and actually helps their nervous system function and keep organized.

5. Getting Exercise

Babies start small but then they get heavy! Carrying around that weight is a great workout for mom. It makes a walk around the block way more rewarding when you can come home and treat yourself to something yummy for all those extra calories you burned!

6. Easier Communication

With your little one right there in front of you, you will know almost instantly if something is wrong or if they are bothered. You are also able to comfort them at a moments notice.

Those are just a few of the reasons I LOVE baby wearing. I will continue to wear Lila until I can’t fit her in a carrier anymore. And just thinking that makes me so sad! I will always treasure these years we have had together where I felt like she was my extra limb.

 

Thanks for reading and let me know in the comments if you baby wear or plan to with your baby! ๐Ÿ™‚

And We’re Off… To Bed!

Pajamas // Towel //ย Blanket // Washcloth // Cream // Powder // Diapers

Hi Everyone!

Have you noticed the days have been getting shorter? I sure have. Lila goes to sleep when the sun does, regardless of what the clock says and this we she has been turning in on the early side. Naps are a thing of the past, so to wind down the day it’s off to bath time right after dinner.

We have a new bath time routine which I will share next, and so far it’s been working out great. When bath time is over I scoop her out of the bath and get right into the bedroom. While she is still in her towel (which by the way this one is adorable and amazing) I start a movie on the tv. It’s almost always Moana, or if we are speeding things up it’s just one episode of Veggie Tales. While the movie starts I’ll give her a massage with my favorite cream, powder up the diaper area, diaper her up, and slip on her jammies. When her jammies are on I’ll brush her teeth which lately has turned into her trying to bite me, but I always win and get those teeth brushed. Last step is “lips” which Lila loves to put on and will ask for it as soon as her shirt goes over her head.

While she gets the wiggles out and jumps around like a monkey, always singing along with Moana I will tidy up the floor a bit and hang up het towel. Then I’ll get in bed with her, put her in the dock a tot with 2 blankets and nurse her until she falls asleep. We definitely have our bedtime routine down which I wanted to create ever since she stopped napping.

So that’s us! Now tell me what do you do to get that baby to bed? Till next time.

When I’m With You I’m Feline Good

Lila’s: SHIRT // SHOES // BACKPACKย 

Hi Everyone!

In my last post I mentioned that Lila has been obsessed with carrying around a backpack and well… that hasn’t changed. Haha. Last night Hubs and I went out for anniversary and left Lila with my parents. My mom is so generous and is always shopping for her grandkids. She loves to spoil them with a bag of clothes/toys every time she sees them. It is super sweet and makes those first moments with my parents even more special since they get to open a present. This gem of a skirt was in her bag last night and I couldn’t stop smiling when I saw all the kitty cats. Lila thinks it’s the best thing ever so she might never take it off.

Hubs and I had a great time on our date and I woke up feeling refreshed and recharged. We had a great morning together and she kept mentioning all the chocolates my mom let her eat last night. I giggle every time she tells me about it. Also, if you are looking for a back to school backpack this leopard one is a seriously great choice. It is just so perfect for a little toddler and can hold so much. I linked it under the last photo if you want to check it out.ย I hope everyone has a great afternoon!

Sunday Funday

 

Lila’s Outfit: DRESS // SHOES // BACKPACK

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a good weekend. I love the weekend because it means Hubs is home and we usually use of those days to wander around town. Yesterday we ended up in South Pasadena where they host their weekly farmer’s market. We got there pretty early so we had the place to ourselves. We got pastries at a local bakery, walked around a bit, and waited/cheered when a train came by. Lila always runs straight to these rocks whenever she sees them so we let her play with them for a bit. She is getting pretty good at throwing them and Hubs loves making it their little activity.

We brought along our alphabet Chatbook which has 26 photos from my Instagram page and 26 letters. It’s a fun way to read the alphabet but also look back on a memory. One of our favorite artists, Dallas Clayton, designed it making it even more special. We let Lila keep it in her backpack which she has been obsessed with carrying around lately. I’ll link below the book template so you can check it out. It is one of the most special books in Lila’s library right now. And really who can say no to a book?

Today me and Lila are doing a craft so check back in a few days and I’ll share how it turned out. Until next time…<3

Favorite Toddler Toys from Sofia The First

Sofia the First Deluxe Friends Pack

ย Itzy Ritzy Travel Happens Bag in Flamingo Flock

Pink Dot Shoesย Piper Finn Footwear (20% off with code: CELESTE)


Hi Everyone!

If you follow along on my InstaStories then you already know that Lila takes toys with her everywhere we go. Her fingers are always super busy trying to keep up with her imagination. I like to collect her little figurines from shows or movies she has already watched so that she knows who the characters are and can easily play with them off their storyline. In the photos is an older version of Sofia the First toys, but she also has the current version and it is her absolute favorite set. The characters are the perfect size for her little hands and each piece is great quality. Some Sofia sets, like one at the disney store, has not so pretty faces on the characters. So I appreciate the quality that went into this set.

I get so many questions about Lila’s toys and I want to start putting together more posts about what toys I get for her and why as well as which ones she actually plays with the most. Below you can scroll through all the Sofia the First that are currently available and are a great for toddler play.

I absolutely cannot sing higher praises of these travel bags. I just though some figurines into this travel bag, zip it up, and toss it in the diaper bag. There are 3 sizes available but I usually use the biggest size since it has a handle. I can snap it to the stroller, or outside of my diaper so it dangles (while in the car, not just walking around like that, haha.)

I hope this was at all helpful. Leave in the comments below what kinds of toys/toys from what movie or show you would like me to share about next. Thanks for reading!

Ice Cream With Sprinkles

Romper //ย Shoesย //ย Sunglasses

Hi Everyone +ย Happy Friday!

We spent the day with my family and that means getting spoiled with treats. I am obsessed with all things blush for Lila and when I found this adorable romper from Childhoods Clothing I had to get it. It is so perfect for summer and so easy to take on and off. We are still doing diapers for Lila and I always try to find clothes that are easy to take and off while on the go.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Treat yourself to something cold & delicious, Lila says.

Let Yourself Rest

 

Hi Everyone!

I have been cooking a lot lately and trying new recipes. I have never known my way around the kitchen so it is all new to me. I have been doing good at the few things I have tried and been encouraged by the process.ย Today was one of the (first of many I’m sure) days where I messed up making lunch. I wasn’t following a recipe though, I was just sort of winging it, so maybe that was my first mistake. Haha.

So I packed up the stroller, got Lila dressed in a romper, and we went to our usual spot. We had a picnic in the grass area with snacks and Lila’s mermaid toys (she brings them everywhere) in her Itty Bitty Be Diaper Bagย . It was so nice to be in a shady spot just relaxing. It is one of my favorite things to just pick a spot and through a blanket down and park it there for a while. Lila played at the playground and we couldn’t leave without spotting my the kid’s shoe section of Nordstrom for her usual pink balloon. The employees know her by name and will run into the back right when they see her. I guess that gives you a clue about how often we do this.

We are back home now and so excited to welcome home Hubs. He is bringing home to dinner tonight to cheer me up about my lunch time fail. He’s a good one you guys. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope everyone is having a great day!

 

Treat your little mama to the cutest itty bitty diaper bag, like ever.

Hey There Little Mama


Triokid Deluxe Baby Doll Strollerย // Lila’s Shoes

Good Morning Friends!

On our coffee run this morning Lila insisted on bringing her new -adorable- baby doll stroller. We normally wouldn’t let her bring something this big on a walk, but she looks so dang cute pushing it that I caved. You can’t tell from the photos (because she sinks to the bottom) but she puts her little baby Anna from Frozen in it. The whole walk she would say “How ya doin’ Anna? You okay?” It was seriously cute.

Jake and I sipped our cold brew and let her push it around for a bit. We parked the car nearby so we thought it was perfect to let her get some energy out before we packed her back in the carseat. She means serious business with that stroller. And I seriously -can’t even- with how much I love seeing her push it.

I’d be lying if I said seeing her with this little stroller hasn’t given me a feeling or two of wanting a newborn around. Then I remember that when she was that little she wouldn’t sit in the stroller for more than a few minutes without crying for me to hold her. -And the feeling fades.- Haha. Maybe if we get her a baby carrier to practice being a big sister because then it would be way more accurate.

Seriously though, if you are pregnant and need a little help teaching your babe the responsibilities of being a big sister this stroller is perfect for that. ORย if your little mama loves babies and needs an excuse to look super cute walking around town, this works great for that too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday!

 

Treat your little mama to the cutest baby doll stroller, like ever.
