I get a lot of messages on Instagram about why I use a certain stroller or high chair, and I thought I would do a round-up on my favorite kids products.
We use the Orbit Baby system and absolutely love it. I have a G1 stroller base from 2010 when EJ1 was a baby, a G3 base with a kickboard, and the jog base, which I bought for EJ2 when Orbit was deeply discounting their last line. For nearly 9 years, I have loved Orbit Baby products and hunted down the products on sale either online or floor sales at Buy Buy Baby. Unfortunately, they sold their company three years ago and it has now gone defunct.
I have an old Bugaboo I purchased off of Craigslist at my in-laws house and I love it; it’s timeless, nimble, and AWESOME. If we have another baby, I will definitely splurge on the Bugaboo Donkey for a double stroller.
For the past 8 years we have used (and beat on) the indestructible Stokke Tripp Trapp high chair. Since we rarely sit at our dining table and almost always at our island, we also use the Guzzie and Guss Perch. It is so secure and it allows my daughter to sit at the island with us.
I LOVE kids clothing, what could be more fun than dressing your mini-mes in cute stuff?!? Here are some of my favorites:
Crewcuts! It is the cutest clothing!
Monica & Andy here in Chicago
These boutiques in New Orleans:
I also love Spanish clothing, La Coqueta is fabulous. It reminds me of Papo D’Anjo… Miss that brand!
DIAPERS, BATH TIME, TOILETRIES
I strive to keep it as clean as possible in our house with the fewest harsh chemicals and the gentlest ingredients! Both my kids have sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
Seventh Generation: we love the diapers, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and disinfecting household wipes! Each product works great and uses botanical ingredients.
Dr. Bronner’s Baby Castile Soap: I knew castile soap was a product we would keep using forever when the NICU nurses at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago had me use it to clean my breast pump parts for EJ2. Since then it has solidified it’s role in our house. It makes a mean bubble bath!
Shea Moisture Nighttime Spray makes my whole house smell amazing, and EJ2 loves it sprayed in her crib right before she goes to bed. It calms our whole house down!
I hope this helps you with your kids and at home! Always reach out if you have more questions! I am happy to help.
