So I’ve had my Google Home set up in my house for a few months now. And I pretty much use it everyday. I have it set with almost one light in every room of the house. So when I get home, it turns on my lights and welcomes me home.
But one of the things that need added to it to really make your life easier, is the Google Chromecast. It’s one thing to tell my Google Home to play Baby Shark when the baby is crying, but some times you need visuals too. I simply have to say “Ok Google, play Splash and Bubbles from Netflix on my living room TV.” ¹ and screaming little one becomes quiet, engrossed little one when I have my hands full or can’t find the remote he ran away with.
With LG’s TwinWash system you get the best of both worlds. For small loads that can’t wait (The sweatpants after hot yoga, the red shirt in a pile of whites, the dirty school uniform on a Sunday night) there is the LG SideKick pedestal washer. You can even use it simultaneously while you do a bigger load up top on your LG Front load washer. Not only do these washers have mega capacity to tackle any size load, they are energy efficient while giving you the best cleaning performance. No wonder more households have chosen LG laundry over any other brand!
Let’s be honest… babies create a LOT of laundry. But all the laundry doesn’t take up a whole lot of space for like the first year; so you’re stuck doing a bunch of small loads in between your big loads for the adults and it’s a never ending battle. You know what would be Awesome? A tiny baby sized washing machine that could handle the bibs and the burp clothes and the sleep sacks when I just need those!
So I have now been guilty of forgetting my pump bag at home when I’ve gone to work… Twice! And going more than 5 hours with a 3 month old, is pretty much boob suicide, let’s be honest. The pain is real. Very real. Also what do you do on car trips, or outings when sitting in the car isn’t very feasible? Manual pumps are a must have if you’re breast feeding.
The Baby Box Co has recently launched in the United States and is a company looking to focus on safe sleep habits for newborns. Finland has had a baby box since the 1930’s in which every single newborn is given a box to sleep in for its first few months along with necessities such as diapers and clothes. This has led to a major decline in infant mortality rates since its inception. I was thrilled to learn that this has now made its way here!

Ok so with a new little one on the way, I’ve been on the look out for all sorts of products to keep my little man safe and happy. When I got the chance to test this out i was thrilled! This is a great little tent perfect for a couple of small children even, that can go anywhere with us!
For the most part, us new moms know kind of what to expect from all the (horror) stories from our mom friends, mother’s, sister’s, everyone who’s ever given birth… But there are a few things that women just don’t pass on! And these SHOULD be the things we know about!
So did i miss anything else? Because let’s be honest, pregnancy brain is VERY real.
So I realize this is looooonnnnggggg…… Overdue. And so has a blog post been! But for those that don’t know, I’ve been a little erm…. Distracted the past few months.
Never fear we’re going to try to ramp this up again! Only with more cute little family and baby posts lol. Enjoy!
I know that this trays intended use is for jewelry but I’m always looking for different storage items in my craft room. This fit the bill perfectly for my odds and ends.
First off, I love that the material is a sackcloth type so that things don’t slide around too much. And with 24 compartments I have room for everything. I keep safety pins, paper clips, buttons, felt letters, pens, markers, thumbtacks and all other types of little things in mine.
