Mommy Must Have... Reviews, giveaways and a guide for parents

Mommy Must Have .... 





Time in a day,
Presence of mind,
a group of supportive friends,  and

Enough love in her heart to make it through the day.




Sometimes it is hard to know what those MUST have items are! AttachedMoms.com and A little Bit of Everything picked a few of their favorites and are excited to share them with you!

The first must have is a great system for organizing. Why not check out an Organizing Utility Tote by Thirty-one Gifts.

One of the basics supplies out there is soap. It Is Well Soap is family-made from a very loving family based in Phoenix.

The next must have is a baby carrier. Babies need that touch and mommy will have things to get done. Unfortunately some of those take a hand or two and a baby carrier like the Boba is a wonderful option!

The next must have is great shoes for the kiddos! See Kai Run offers cute shoes for both boys and girls, and their crib shoes are a definite must have!

Once your kiddos start eating food, it will be important to introduce them to fruits and vegetables. Copy-Kids DVD is a great way to help that picky toddler see other kids enjoy vegetables and likely get your kiddo on the route to good eating as well!

Now, don't forget about aunt flow! I tell you, even with TANDEM nursing on demand, I had less than 6 weeks between post-partum flow and aunt flow. To get yourself covered, consider reusable mama cloth. Really, it works awesome! MotherMoonPads are top of the line!

When baby is here, and perhaps elimination communication isn't cut out for your family, may I suggest cloth diapers? There are tons of options out there from upcycled t-shirts on the "old fashioned" prefolds to factory made waterproof diapers. Right in between that you have work-at-home-mom made diapers. One of my favorites is Made With Love Diapers.

Finally, kiddos know that mama needs relaxing, and one great way to relax is with a pedicure. Well sometimes getting that time alone isn't possible so kiddos can join in with the fun with Piggy Paint!

And to carry all your stuff, you need a nice bag. Fans of Attached Moms are eligible for a free gift from Thirty-One gifts with Amanda McMahon, Independent Consultant!


In the end, don't forget that a good mom isn't defined by the things she has or how together she appears. Just be the best mommy you can be and your kiddos will appreciate it :)

Thanks again for following this event! Feel free to use those share buttons!

I had to have a Moby wrap - I didn't like to put LO down and I couldn't get anything done if I didn't! The Moby solved my dilemma :)

I think my first must have will be a new bed. We want to upgrade to a large, more supportive one before we upgrade the family.

My must have item was the Itzbeen timer. I don't have a smartphone, so I used it to time feedings, and I still use it to time naps!

Sandy Saves said...

My must have item was a super comfortable rocking chair. During cluster feeds I spent many many hours in the chair!

I don't know yet since baby won't arrive for a few more months. I am loving reading what everyone else says because it helps me know what to focus on :)

Unknown said...

A must have item for a new momma is low expectations of yourself! :) I know that it isn't an item but is so important to take it easy.
