Hello and thanks for checking out the Third Time’s a Charm event hosted by First Time Mom and Zephyr Hill! We’ve come together as veteran moms who have been there and done that to bring you what we feel are some of the best maternity and baby products out there. Each participating blog has a maternity and/or baby themed prize that’s at least worth $25. Hop around from blog to blog by using the linky in this post and see what must-have maternity and baby product each blogger thinks you should have!
Our grand prize packages are ones that Bert has tested and approved during her pregnancy with baby #3, Keira, as well as on Keira now that she’s on the outside world. We can’t wait for you to get to know our sponsors and their sometimes sanity saving products.
Spark of Amber - I reviewed the Raw Amber necklace in Campfire. I don’t have chronic pain so I didn’t really see a difference so my stepmother-in-law, who suffers from migraines at night, tested the necklace out. She definitely saw results and my father-in-law has said he’s noticed that she’s no longer in visible pain like she had been. You’ll be able to win an adult amber necklace in your choice of color!
Dr. Brown’s Gia Angled Breastfeeding Pillow – I first met this wonderful breastfeeding support last year at the Baby Ladies Baby Shower in Chicago. I loved how the pillow was shaped and the support it offered. Now that I’m using it in action I’m even more impressed. It’s ten times more supportive than the Boppy and both myself and my sister (who’s still currently nursing her 11-month-old son) like it a lot.
Mod Mum hospital gowns – There is nothing worse in my opinion than wearing the hospital provided gown during your entire hospital stay. They just look so bleh and let’s be honest, you’ve put in a lot of work the past months plus the labor and delivery. I love Lisa’s, the owner of Mod Mum, sense of style and the fabrics that she uses for her gowns. You’ll read my full review later but this is definitely a product you have to check out.
Chewbeads – Chewbeads are necklaces that mom wears that are safe for baby to chew on. I love wearing jewelry. Once my children turned four months I could pretty much guarantee I wouldn’t see another necklace around my neck for the next six months. That’s all changed with Chewbeads, they’re super cute and on trend too!
Maxwell Designs – If you’re not in the cloth diaper community using cloth diapers there’s a pretty good chance that haven’t heard about Canada-made Maxwell Designs. Maxwell Designs uses the best fabrics and their totes are so cute. Every bag, whether it’s a tote or a wet bag, is made with care which is one of the reasons this newer (to the US) company is really on the rise. I had the opportunity to review their cosmetic bag and I loved the shape of the bag. I also really liked the lining of the bag and how easily I could wipe away some of the loose powder that escaped in transit.
Pink Lemonade Mama Cloth – One time as I was folding Kendall, my oldest daughter’s, diapers and I touched the inside of the diaper and thought, “It would be nice to have underwear made out of this.” Well, you can! It’s called mama cloth and Pink Lemonade is the place to get it. For the event, I reviewed their Post Partum Pads. I was so impressed with how comfortable they were and how much they were able to hold without leaking.
Dana Decals – Wall decals are all the rage now and what makes Dana Decals stand out in my opinion are the designs they offer. You can walk into any big box store and buy some wall decal that’s in every home in your neighborhood. Or you could check out a shop like Dana Decals and find an original wall decal that will set your room apart from the rest. This is a must for nursery decorating.
Smart Bottoms – I love Smart Bottoms’ products and their commitment to provide organic fibers in their diapers. Plus, everything is made and sourced in the US. Their Born Smart diaper is the perfect fit on a little tush with skinny legs.
Thirsties – I’ve been so impressed with Thirsties’ hemp prefolds and of course their covers. In a jam and when I’m tired I just trifold the prefold and lay it in the cover. There’s a fold on the inside of the diaper that helps keep the prefold in place.
Zookaboo! – I just about go into credit card overload whenever I look at Zookaboo!’s website so when I had my very own newborn t-shirt with a diaper cover and match hat for Keira to wear I just couldn’t stand how cute she looked! I’m so excited for you to win one of your own too!
aden + anais – I adore these blankets!! I’m sure you’ve seen them everywhere. What sets Hayden’s Heart swaddler apart is the message behind the blanket. It’s to raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defect as well as to help the families with medical bills.
Crafting Tree – You have to check out this breastfeeding infinity scarf. I can’t wait to tell you more about it so keep your eyes peeled for the review.
Black Wolf Designs – Michelle, the creator of Black Wolf’s jewelry, is truly talented. I love the washer necklace that she made for me.
Honey Pot Herbals - Laura has been using a salve for the past few months on BabyCakes that’s from Honey Pot Herbals. She’s really liking how nicely it goes on BabyCakes’ skin.
Farm to Front Porch – Farm to Front Porch does all things burlap! I love her burlap wreaths and banners and I can’t wait to show you the banner she made for Keira.
