Mom Guide + Zipadee-Zip Giveaway!

Mom Guide
I have spent A LOT of time over the past year researching different baby products and trying them out.  When I say I was completely lost when it came to knowing what I would need when having a baby, I am not exaggerating one bit.  There are so many different brands and products.  I felt overwhelmed.  I didn’t know which ones were best or which ones Leighton would even like.  I had no clue where to start.  Luckily I had many friends and readers who recommended some great products to me.  When we leave the house, we almost need an extra vehicle just to store all of “Leighton’s things” we want to carry with us.  And not only is there so much you need, it is so expensive too.  There were a lot of things I bought only later to return them after learning that I didn’t need them or that Leighton didn’t like them. 
Some of the companies below I have worked with in the past, and some I haven't.  If a company is on this list though, it is one that I truly love and recommend.  I was not compensated by these companies to write this post, and aside from Zipadee-Zip donating a wearable blanket to give away today, these companies do not even know I am posting about them today.  I simply feel like I have had the opportunity to try many different baby products out, and I wanted to share some of my favorite baby brands and products in the hopes that others might find some great products that they love too.  I would also love to hear what your favorite baby products are.  Leave me a comment below sharing yours, and let me know if you’ve tried any of the ones below and what you think about them too.  I am sure there are some others I love that I have accidentally left off this list, so I will keep it updated as I find new shops I recommend.  I am hoping this post could be a great mom guide for new moms out there.  I definitely could have used something like this when I first found out I was pregnant.  = )
P.S. – I am also giving away one of my favorite new products that my friend Skinny Meg recently recommended to me, a Zipadee-Zip wearable blanket.  It is a lifesaver to help your baby sleep better at night by not startling and waking themselves up constantly.  When we started using this and transitioned her to the crib, it is when she finally started sleeping 11 hours at night.  Good luck!

  7. My daughter loved to be swaddle! Once she rolled over we transitioned her to the sleep sack. The Zipadee-Zip was the best one that we tried and our LO loves it her wearable blankets! She sleeps very well in it, all night.
