Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

Baby Bare Necessities: 0-6 Months

What do you need to have before baby arrives? Sing with me, “Look for the bare necessities. The simple bare necessities.” Preparing for baby is an exciting and joyous time. Do not let all the commercialization bog you down. Be a minimalist and save your money by only purchasing essentials that can be re-used with several children. Having new, trendy baby items can be fun, however, your baby will not notice if you stick to the basics.

Welcome to Crunchy Collection #2!

It’s June! Can you believe it? We’re halfway through the year already! Summer is such an odd season to me, especially here in Florida. We wish for warm weather (at least 75° or above for us Southern snobs) and then when it comes, we are so stinking hot that we can’t wait for Fall. The grass is always greener on the other side, right?

Crunchy Collection 2

Anyways, I’ve had trouble figuring out what to do because the majority of our weekly activities do not continue into the summer. So, I have decided I am going to start a Summer Solution; like a New Year’s resolution but for the Summer months. This Crunchy Collection is filled with things that I can work on over the next couple of months. I hope you will set some goals and share them with me so we can reach our goals together. Let’s have a fun AND productive Summer! On a side note, I must be feeling ambitious because this post ended up being quite lengthy but I saved some of the best things for last so please read through to the end.

A week and a half ago, we packed up the car with my new Canon Rebel, my favorite glass water bottle, and some sunscreen to head down to the St. Marks Lighthouse for a sea turtle release. The release was scheduled for June 3rd at 3pm, which happens to be the most brutal part of the day here in sunny Florida. Needless to say, it was important for us to be prepared for the intense sun and excruciating heat during this exciting event.

Beco Soleil Carrier Giveaway

Babywearing is an act of love. It keeps baby comfy and close to your heartbeat while still allowing you to have your hands free. In addition to the many benefits of babywearing, baby carriers come in amazing designs, prints and patterns. One very popular type is soft structured carriers (SSCs). They’re easy to put on and take off, and have comfortable padded shoulder straps. It’s my go-to for supermarket shopping and trips to the park. Beco Baby Carriers are well known soft structured baby carriers (SSC) and the Soleil goes from 7-45lbs. With the snap of two buckles, this carrier is easy to take on and off for shopping, going on a walk or simply getting things done at home like eating!
Wouldn’t you love to win this beautiful carrier? Details below:
