What’s in my diaper bag?

As babies get older what you carry in your diaper bag changes! After switching things around I finally found a solution that works best for me.  I hated that my stuff was getting cluttered with Tripp’s stuff and I wanted a easier solution than carrying two bags.

A friend of mine recommended a back pack for Tripp when we use the the child watch at the gym and that is how the lightbulb went off in my head.  I keep everything of Tripp’s in his backpack and throw it in my big bag! So much better and easier to find what I need.

So onto the good stuff…Our bags:

diaper

Mine [Louis Vuitton]: Neverfull MM

His [Pottery Barn]: Pre-K size

products

Wipes [Target]

Diapers [Target]

Water Bottle [Bed Bath and Beyond]

Outfit [Carter’s]: Because accidents happen.

EOS [Target]: We both actually use this because it is so easy to use on him because he thinks it is a nipple! HA!

Sophie [Target]

Sippy Straw Cup [Target]

Snack Container [Buy Buy Baby] [with goldfish of course].  He also loves yogurt puffs! I linked a different product than what I have. My biggest complaint is there isn’t an air tight lid for mine and then one I linked has that!

Lipstick [Mac]

Hand cream [Bath and Body Works]

Granola [Target] because nursing moms are ALWAYS hungry.

Book [Priddy Books]

Rattle [Similar]

Sunglasses [RayBans]

LuLaRoe Love

Okay y’all; being a mom of a high needs baby [more about that later], I am looking to stay fashionable but comfortable. LuLaRoe has made that SO easy.

They have signature styles that I can easily purchase and add to mix and match into my collection.  The leggings are seriously AMAZEBALLZ. SO soft.

I love that you can stay classic with solids but that they also have fun prints too! Styles range from comfortable to work place classy so there really is something for everyone.

Many pieces work for breastfeeding and could easily transition into pregnancy wardrobe.  WHICH I LOVE.  There are very few “pregnancy” pieces that I purchased because I love things that have more than one use.  This brand is perfect for that!

For those of you unsure about sizing, consultants are great at helping.  For reference I am 5’2″ and about 115-120lbs. Also, for the busty girls I am a DD-DDD just to help you out.

Okay first off here are the leggings.  I am an OS.  I have not tried tween yet but I think I maybe able to wear them. These are what LLR is known for.  They are so soft and flattering!

leggings

The Nicole: This is my favorite dress! It is so flattering but so comfy! Also, it is easy to nurse in. Something that many of my pre-baby dress are NOT.  So this has been a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  I am an XS.

img_5684

The Amelia: Oh this dress is so fun! It has a great zipper detail and you can wear the zipper in the front or the back! It also has pockets!  I am wearing an XS.

img_5906

The Carly: A very comfy and versatile dress.  You can style it a TON of ways.  You can pull this dress off around town with some chucks on or heals for a date night! I am wearing an XXS.

carly

The Cassie: A fun skirt.  Great for work! It has the stretch of leggings but looks so professional.  It is so comfortable too not tight and constricting like most skirts! I am an XS but could do a Small as well.

img_5682

The Lindsay is a fun layering piece since it is a kimono.  This has been perfect for wearing with nursing tops! This is a small.  If they made it in XS I would probably get that but alas they don’t.

img_6241

The Classic Tee [Left]: Love this shirt to wear with leggings or to rock with a pair of jeans! I am wearing and XS.

The Irma [Right]: A wonderful tunic top.  Can wear a ton of ways! I am wearing an XXS.  I will say I have a few of these and the back length varies a little bit but all are pretty long!

img_5458img_5434

**I also have a maxi skirt not pictured that is an XS.

Here are links to my FAVORITE consultants! Be sure to tell them how you found out about LLR.  If you have questions let me know and I would be happy to help!

Pregnancy Style Recap

As my due date approaches I wanted to get a recap up of what I wore and some style tips during pregnancy.  I think one of the best pieces of advice I took was don’t be afraid to wear pre-pregnancy clothes and incorporate them into your pregnancy pieces.

There are some non-negotiable pregnancy pieces for me.  Leggings and jeans that go over the belly.  Everyone is different but I couldn’t get comfortable (in later pregnancy) with elastic/waistbands digging into my lower tummy.

Pictures and items will be list left to right, top row than bottom row.
