Here are some of my favorite things!
Every now and then I come across a new gadget, household product, baby product, etc that I really like and if I think it’s worth sharing with everyone, I’ll put it here on my blog. Let me know if you enjoy these products as much as I do!
Aden & Anais Swaddle Blankets
I was given a set of these blankets from a family friend that didn’t need them any more before HD was born. They were the pink ones since she had three daughters, but since I didn’t know what we were having I took them home and got them all ready for the baby. When HD was born I tried to swaddle him in some other blankets that I had received, but none of them worked as well as these did. So, I ordered him a set of the blue ones.
They are big (47″ x 47″), perfect to wrap the baby up in a perfect swaddle. They are nice and light weight, but once you wrap it around the baby, they are nice and cozy in it. For the swaddle blankets there are four different types, but I have one of the Classic Muslin Collections and love them!
A pack of four is $49.95 and they are well worth them. They are made out of 100% cotton muslin for the ultimate in breathability and softness. “The fabric’s light, open weave allows a baby’s body temperature to regulate itself naturally, helping to reduce the risk of overheating. It is gentle on baby’s skin and durable for everyday use.” The more you wash the blankets, the softer they get.
They can be used not only for swaddling, but also for burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets, stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, changing table covers, and more!
Target sells a line of these blankets for a cheaper price, but I read online that they are not as big and not the same quality of blanket as the one’s directly from the Aden & Anais website. Check them out! I’m sure you’ll love them!
Sleep Better’s Beyond Down Pillows
I received Sleep Better’s Beyond Down pillow from ModernMom.com to try out. I’m not too picky about my pillows as long as they are not flat and/or hard, but this pillow is AWESOME! It’s heavy like a down pillow, but oh so soft! Not too soft, but just right! I love it! I usually sleep on 2 pillows, but this one is all I need! The Beyond Down line of pillows has a four-inch gusset that properly supports the head and neck of side sleepers like myself. The pillow itself is wrapped in the highest quality cotton and filled with a polyester fiber that emulates the highest quality white goose down, making it hypoallergenic. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good night’s sleep! Go to Sleep Better and check out their sleeping products!
One of my favorite things that I use every day is my MacBook Air. I got this just after Christmas this year. I actually bought it at Best Buy because of the free financing, but the customer service that Apple has given me since then is unbeatable. You can read about that here. I absolutely love how lightweight and thing this computer is, but it still has a 13 inch screen! Perfect for what I use it for: pictures, videos, music, blogging, email, etc. If you are looking for a laptop to travel with, this is it!
