2016 Holiday Gift Guide – For the New Mama


1. YoYo Stroller – The thought of traveling with a baby is not a comforting one! That being said, I love this YoYo Stroller. It’s super light (I can carry it with one hand), it fits in the overhead compartment of an airplane, unfolds and folds up super easily, and has an adjustable seat to lay the baby back when sleeping. It’s an investment, but as a working mom, it has saved my life!

2. Solly Wrap – This wrap is a must have! I definitely think it’s the comfiest one I have and I think it was Easton’s favorite too. It’s so snug and keeps baby close and comfy. They have just about the cutest fabrics too so you can find one to go with pretty much any outfit!

3. The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care – This book makes the principles of traditional nutrition available to modern parents. It provides holistic advice for pregnancy and newborn interventions, vaccinations, breastfeeding and child development, and more. I loosely follow this book and have found it to be super helpful during Easton's transition to solids.

4. Organic Onesie – This onesie is made with 100% organic cotton and is an all-time favorite. I love that it has a gloved sleeve feature so that Easton didn't scratch himself! I had them in tons of colors when he was little.

5. Initial Necklace – I absolutely love my Stella & Dot necklace! I chose to get mine engraved with all 3 of my children's initials and I wear it practically every day.

6. Travel Crib – I take this crib with me everywhere when I travel! Although it’s not an organic mattress, the functionality of this crib makes it all worth it. It fits as a carry on and is easily portable!

7. Woombie Swaddle – We’ve tried out many swaddles and this one is by far our favorite! It’s really cozy yet perfectly ventilated which is great for warmer climates. I also love that it keeps Easton nice and contained but he can also wiggle and move around as much as he needs.

8. Hanna Andersson Onesie – A few good pairs of jammies that can be passed down from kid to kid are essential in our household and I love that these use organic cotton.

9. Nursing Cami – I have these in all 3 colors and wear them most days instead of nursing bras. I love the tighter fabric so it provides support everywhere you need it, and makes breastfeeding easier on the go.

10. Nipple Cream – I loved this cream and am so happy someone on my instagram recommended it! It’s soothing because of the calendula and it’s also non-GMO and lanolin free which are a big bonus. It’s also edible so you don’t have to wash it off before nursing the baby. It was the only one that Easton didn’t mind.

11. Cozy Robe – Every mom needs a good cozy robe, am I right? This one is my all-time favorite. It’s super soft and I really would wear it everywhere if possible.

12. Baby's First Year Memory Book – I always have grandiose plans to do a beautiful handmade baby book, and never have the time, so I love the simplicity of this baby book. It’s so cute inside and covers all of the major moments.

13. Diaper Cream – This is my favorite brand for most baby skincare! It’s organic and protects the little ones bums from moisture and bacteria. It even has soothing herbs like calendula!

14. Swaddle Blankets – These swaddles are award-winning and you can definitely tell! I love all of the cute designs they offer and they are so soft to the touch.

15. Ergobaby Organic Carrier – I have a few different favorite carriers and this is the one that I use the most frequently! It’s’ super functional, easy to wear, and dad loves wearing it too! I loved the infant insert for when E was tiny, and then wore him with his legs in for a while after that.
