First Year Favorites + a Boudreaux’s Butt Paste Giveaway


With two littles in the past 3 years, we’ve got LOTS ‘O Baby stuff in our house. I like to think I’ve become quite the aficionado when it comes to all things baby. I’ve done a few favorite things with the littles over my tenure as a mom. I love to share what we love and what works for us!

It’s been interesting with baby #2 to see what we really used and needed – some things are MUCH more necessary than others! Here are some of my favorites that have been tried and true through two littles!




one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight / nine 


one – Obsessed with this bib, I have one for each little. They are so easy to clean, look cute and great for catching food! Love it. Plus it comes in a million color/pattern options.

two – I really enjoy these pacifier clips! They are amazing for keeping the paci off the floor and in the littles reach when he needs it. I love these colors and simple patterns.

three – The wubanub has been a favorite in our house from the beginning. Brooks had the elephant {still has it, just with the paci cut off} and Graham has the lion {hello, spirit animals} they love the little animal they can cuddle with.

four – I am a big fan of all the different lamaze toys. They are awesome to clip onto the stroller or carseat – the dragon is a favorite of mine because you pull on him and his wings flap! so cute!

five – OBSESSED with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste – It’s been a savior with my two boys! Butt Paste is free of dyes, parabens, preservatives, phthalates and talc, making it the perfect rash-prevention product for use with every change! More on it below – and a fun giveaway!

six – This carrier is everything. It can be used various ways and it’s so light and easy to always roll up and throw in your diaper bag! Check out my post about it here for more information, but seriously, it’s the best – from newborn to toddler.

seven – Living in the city in a townhouse we love these sound machines to keep the littles from all the crazy city noise and allows us to not have to tiptoe around after they go to sleep at 7pm.

eight – I love the sippy cups for brooks and graham – they don’t leak ! I swear ! Plus they are cheap too ! Win Win !

nine – I’m a huge fan of these wipes – have been for some time now – they have been amazing to use for anything and everything with both our boys !



 A little more about one of our favorites :  Boudreaux’s Butt Paste –  it is available in three targeted formulas to help protect against and improve diaper rash – Original, Maximum Strength and All Natural.

  • The Original Formula – contains 16% Zinc Oxide which treats skin irritations by creating a barrier to seal out wetness
  • The Maximum Strength Formula – contains 40% Zinc Oxide for over two times the rash fighting power as the Original Formula
  • The All Natural Formula – In addition to 16% Zinc Oxide, this has been formulated with natural soothing and calming ingredients like Aloe Vera to soothe skin

Seriously, Boudreaux’s Butt Paste has been a life safer for us with both our boys. They have sensitive skin and it has helped keep them protected and happy. Can’t say enough good things about it ! Love  #buttpaste
