Spring Fever: 2017 Favorite Baby Nursery Ideas, Mama Must Have's, and Cute Registry Gifts

After what seemed like the longest winter ever, I couldn't be MORE ready for Spring, sandals, & sangria!  I was lucky enough to have mini models Quinny & Jax with me today to help show everyone my current favorite spring updates for your baby's nursery or playroom (and a couple for the Mama's too!)  So whether you're expecting a new baby or just need a quick room refresh, there is something below for virtually everyone! 

The Davinci Jenny Lind Crib: I mean, COME ON!  Priced under $199, this timeless style can be used for a girl or boy, and for a little extra cash you can upgrade to the 3-in-1 conversion style.  Available in spring Yellow, white, teal, black- the list goes on!  The wheels could be my favorite part of this design, which makes rolling the crib from your bedside to baby's nursery as easy as can be!  And the matching bookcase & vanity?  Be still my wallet.

The Dock-a-Tot: A top Baby list item of 2016, this is at the TOP of every Mom's wish list (hell I'd even sleep in one.)  I receive calls and emails weekly from parents looking for advice on this innovative product and let me assure you: you won’t be disappointed!  The Dock is not only eco-friendly, breathable and portable (hello naps on vacation, finally!!) but serves as a perfect place for your child to learn independent & healthy sleep habits while feeling safe AND secure.  A consistent sleeping environment such as the one that Dock-A-Tot provides is crucial to successfully helping your child learn how to sleep through the night or lengthen those short naps.  I highly recommend the Dock to any parent looking to give their child the right start to exceptional sleep!  Use this link to get $10 OFF, you're welcome ;)

Finn & Emma Organic Pajamas:  I don't think it's a huge secret to my readers that we are obsessed with this brand of pajamas, which is why I was SO happy to see their new Safari line offered in mint & grey- which coordinates perfectly when attempting to match your children of any gender for Instagram photos!  Sizes range from newborn up to 4T,  these stretchy-buttery-soft pajamas come in many prints, and are non-toxic and G.O.T.S certified.  These organic pajamas are a MUST if your child has sensitive skin, eczema, or mild to severe cases of SPD.

Lorena Canal (Washable!!) Area Rugs & Floor Cushions: Why would you buy a rug anywhere else, WHY?  I had a cream rug in my family room that was destroyed within 6 months by my children a few years ago.  After scrubbing up fruit pouches and mayyyyybe a little red wine, I decided it was time to go the washable-rug-way: and these do NOT disappoint!  They even felt a little softer AFTER going through my washing machine!  Pictured below is the Lace rug in "Ice", the washable "White Cloud" floor cushion, and the World Map Rug in Grey.  They have over 100 adorable rugs, it will be very, very difficult for you to choose one (which is why I own two, sorry hunny!)

The "Rest" White Noise Machine:  This sleek and brilliant design comes from the innovative creators of Hatch Nursery (including the changing table that weighs your baby in ounces?  Genius.).  Not only is this a one-touch white noise machine with multiple soothing sounds, but also a 6-color option nightlight, and "ok-to-wake" clock that can all be controlled through an app on your PHONE!  I know what you're thinking.....where was this when my first baby was born, right?!  For Sleep & the City readers only, use this link and type in "SATCSHIP" at checkout; these sell out extremely fast so hop over now!

Mon Petit Soft Soles (shown here in Platinum in the Mary Jane style):  If you like Freshly Picked, you will LOVE these tiny soft-soled shoes for your little lady or handsome dude.  Due to the soft soles, these are perfect for any age, and your babe won't rip them off at first glance.  They come in every color imaginable, which again, makes it hard not to whip out your credit card.  Keep up with their Instagram account for 20% off sales!

Milestone Baby Book & Monthly Cards:  I loved using these little milestone cards for the kids growing up, and now they are available in Toddler ones (YES!) and are a cute way to document getting dressed by themselves (win for Mamas), or using the potty (win for everyone)!  Milestone Baby also just released their baby brag book, which is a big photo album to record all your memories, pictures (and sleep charts, right??) with monthly stickers included for the crafty Mama. And psst!  Especially for our followers, enjoy these FREE PRINTABLES for a limited time!

Little Ewe & Me Pom Pom Swaddles: A well-kept secret in the swaddle world, Heidi Hopper is the master Mama behind this brand, offering adorable teethers, swaddles and multi-layer muslim blankets for a fraction of what you'd pay the big brands.  These are my go-to baby shower presents and Easter basket stuffers!

 

For the MAMAS: 

Coco & Kiwi 5-Way Diaper Bags:  Let's be honest with each other- the days we shower and put on more than mascara are rare, so having something about your "Momiform" that helps you look & feel pulled together is a must!  I have ALL the heart eyes for these diaper bags, and I can't get enough.  For under $120, the striped Provence bag helps me feel chic, even when my clothes aren't looking that way.  It has a shoulder strap and backpack option, so you can wear it and save room in that Target shopping cart, or hold both of your toddler's hands in the parking lot (or change someone in the parking lot hands-free, no judgement.)  These bags sell out FAST, fair warning! (****Psst....insider secret: check this sale section often for amazing deals on 2nd quality!*****)

Stitch Fix Monthly Box Chic diaper bag, check.  Top knot on point, check.  Now all you need is a personal shopper to bring clothes in your style that you can't get at the mall straight to your house, right?  Has anyone actually attempted shopping with more than one child (hashtag nightmare!) at the mall?  Save your sanity, time, and open a monthly gift that arrives at your door for only $20/month, that you can apply towards any item in the box.  They also carry maternity & men's boxes too that don't disappoint!  Use this link for a discount on your first box; isn't this emerald tee perfect year round??
