What Moms Love {Weekly}

Are you ready for this weeks What Moms Love {Weekly}?

This week I am loving: play dates with sweet friends, holding a little baby for the mom to have a break and getting my baby-fix at the same time, chocolate covered strawberries, listening to my four year old sing when she doesn’t know I’m listening, listening to my 13 year old sing when she doesn’t know I’m listening {smile}, a husband who gets me and has lots of grace.

How about you? What are you loving this week?

Here are some favorite finds this week that I wanted to share:

1. Bamboobies Heart Shaped Nursing Pads– I am past my nursing days but I would have loved to have had Bamboobies when I was nursing. They’ve been around for a little while but if you haven’t seen them or tried them I would recommend you look into them.  Here are the details about them (and all the reasons I know I would have loved them): Bamboobies ultra-soft nursing pads are unique because they don’t show through or leak through like other washable pads.  Ultra-thin, heart-shaped regular pads are made for light leaking and less visibility and Overnights are made for heavy leaking and newborn nursing.  Both types of pads are made with a unique milk-proof backing to stop embarrassing leaks. Washable Bamboobies save $$$ over disposables.  Made of ultra-soft and soothing organic cotton and bamboo rayon velour with an inner layer of hemp and organic cotton, these pads are ultra-absorbent and ultra-eco.

2.“Dude your wife keeps checking me out!” Onsie by Darling Little Bow Shop on Etsy- I laughed out loud when I came across this adorable onsie on Etsy.  It’s perfect for your handsome little guy! You can find it in various sizes and also older boys t-shirts.  Be sure to check out the other adorable items while you are browsing Darling Little Bow Shop. She’s got some adorable little girls things too!

3. What I Wore Today Doodle Book– Sometimes I come across things I wish I had when I was a kid and this is one of them.  I used to love to draw outfits and fashion I envisioned.  This book is super cute and perfect for the girl who likes to draw and is in to fashion.  A girl can keep track of all of her fashionable efforts and keep track of ideas for new trends.  There are also tips on dressing for the seasons and even inspiration from others included.

4. Love You More Box Sign From Primitives By Kathy– My husband, kids and I often use the phrase “Love you more” when one of us tells the other that we love them. So I fell in love with this box sign when I saw it and wanted it for my wall in the middle of our family pictures.  Luckily I had birthday money to spend on it and it should be arriving today! It would also be lovely in a baby nursery or kids room.

Have a LOVELY weekend!

What Moms Love Weekly: For Moms, Babies & Kids

What Moms Love Weekly on Mommy Kudos is finally back after a break.  Let’s get right to the goodness:

This week I am loving: soft warm blankets on a cold winter’s day. Teen daughters that want to pour their hearts out until late at night and then really listen to words of advice. Pulling out hand-me-downs in the next size up and reminiscing about when the older daughter was this little. The last peppermint mocha before I am “better about eating healthy.”  How about you? What are you loving this week?

Here are some of my favorite finds this week for moms, babies and kids:

1. Just Between Us: A No-Stress, No-Rules Journal for Girls and Their Moms– I LOVE this journal! If you have a daughter who is a preteen or teen then I highly recommend you get this journal, read the introduction and get started sharing with your daughter.  There are prompts and questions to answer for each other in the journal as well as free space to ask questions and pour your heart out.  You and your daughter can pass the book back and forth over time and make some special memories and get to know one another on a whole new level.  I wish this was out when I was growing up!

2. The NEW Boppy Pillow for nursing– I always loved having a Boppy for nursing.  From the first nursing session to the last it was a friend I kept close by.  When I saw the new and improved Boppy I was impressed with the thought they have put into it.  There are now two sides to it: the traditional, soft pillow side you know and love with Boppy AND the new firm cushion featuring contoured foam.  Best of all the whole thing is washable when you remove the foam insert! Another detail that is new is the adjustable belt that keeps the Boppy in place.  The belt is removable and there are inserts to hide away the clips.  I’m so happy that Boppy is making a great thing even better with this new Boppy Pillow!  It seems that these new pillows are not available just yet online but Boppy’s site says you can find them at Target and Babies R Us.

3. Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe– This book is such encouragement to moms with little ones! I cannot recommend it enough. Sarah Mae writes honestly about the struggles of motherhood from the perspective of someone who is going through it currently and then Sally Clarkson (a mom with grown children) takes a turn sharing advice and wisdom on how to make it through these hard days of mothering.  I found the book so refreshing and encouraging. Moms are raving about how this book is having a huge impact on their lives.  It has amazing ratings on Amazon and I highly recommend you read it!

4. Petunia Pickle Bottom Boxy Backpack Convertible Diaper Bag,Frolicking in Fez – I know this bag in these colors has been out for a few months but I keep seeing it and I just love the colors and pattern! Petunia Pickle Bottom bags are pricey for sure but the investment might be worth it for the long run, especially if you are just starting out and will need a diaper bag that will work with a boy or girl and perhaps through more than one baby. I would be happy to seen lugging this diaper bag around.  I may need to borrow a baby so that it doesn’t look weird though {wink}

Those are my favorites finds this week. Have you found anything that you love?

We’re enjoying being outdoors more
– visiting a petting zoo and seeing the joy on all of their faces as they got to pet goats, chickens, ducks, and a tortoise
– planting a tree together in our backyard
– tossing a football together”

1. Nerf weather blitz football

2. Tonka trucks

What Moms Love {Weekly}

This week I am featuring Rebekah of Your Mom Designs {she makes some fabulous kid stuff herself} and some of what she loves for Fall.  Here is what she is loving:

this week i am loving the anticipation of fall arriving, the excitement of little minds learning new things in school and the simple joy of making a baby giggle as often as possible.
1. i’m a fan of a good cup of coffee year round, but there is something about a hot cup of coffee on a cool fall morning that really starts my day off right, and as the only coffee drinker in my house i find the aeropress makes a really beautiful single cup of coffee.


2. with fall approaching i can’t help but look forward to cozy layers in rich colors, and love this hoody by Boden in indigo with a floral print.


3. my little girl wears a uniform to school, which actually seems to make our morning routine a slight bit easier, but i do think it’s important to give her some options for expressing her own style, so we are doing our best to acquire/make cute hair bows and this wool felt bow by LoftFullOfGoodies  on Etsy is such a unique style.


4.  i love the various products Kids Konserve sells for packing lunches, snacks and drinks, the designs are bold and graphic and safe at the same time.
