In ten days, my oldest turns four. FOUR. I don’t know how it has been four years since he was born, but somehow….it has.
My life has changed in so many ways since he was born. Our life has been enriched. Our family has grown. My professional skills, and life work, has become more focused and fulfilling.
And yet, there’s one thing that’s the same today as it was four years ago. Like four years ago, I’m a working mom. I’m looking for ways to make life easier, and better. To enhance my children’s experience of the world. And to feel beautiful, despite the fact that I don’t have a lot of time or energy to put into a perfectly curated closet, or a full scale make up and hair routine every day.
In light of that, and the fact that we’re entering one of the biggest months of the year for baby births, I was delighted to partner with three products that I truly believe make a mom’s life – whether she’s a new or veteran – easier. Enhanced. And more beautiful. Which means I get to share them with you tonight – and give you the opportunity to win them for yourself!
Possibly the greatest new monthly service on my radar is Le Tote. I do love clothes, and shoes, and jewelry (come on, who doesn’t?!) but I don’t have time to go through my closet looking for new pairings, or spend lots of time at the mall (much to the chagrin of my inner shopaholic).
When I first heard about Le Tote, I was intrigued. They offer moms like us the ability to try out super chic, affordable clothing, and return it for a fresh set of wearables. They’ll pre-select options for you, making it easy to find pairings that actually work together. OR you can select your own. And if you decide that you’re trying a piece you just can’t live without, you KEEP it (for a DISCOUNT!).
It’s a super easy service to use. I’ve tried other clothing delivery options, and haven’t liked them. They haven’t been that spot on with my style, and they’re expensive. This is a much more fun option, mostly because you can seriously try before you buy. And for $60 a month, it’s a service that every working mom should be using to up their wardrobe game. At least in this working mama’s opinion.
I’ve had a secret little crush on Bamboobies since the first time I saw them a few years ago. It might be the name, or the adorable heart shape of their products, or the fact that they just have a great product that works. Whatever it is, I LOVE their brand.
I don’t care if you’re a breastfeeding mom, a formula feeding mom, or a pumping mom. We ALL have problems with leakage in that first year post-baby-birth. It’s uncomfortable, it’s embarassing, and it can catch you unawares.
What I like most about Bamboobies is that they have a product that works, but it’s also cute and comfortable, AND prevents you from experiencing that awkward moment when you realize that your shirt just got soaked from that blessed milk production. Or WORRYING that you’ll leak and be totally embarrassed in the middle of a meeting, or out a lunch, or wherever. And that combination is a true way to help a new mom really feel comfortable in her post-baby body – which is the first step to reclaiming a little bit of your beautiful mama spirit after a new baby enters your life.
I was actually introduced to Momsense THROUGH Bamboobies, and as soon as I checked out their product I was completely flabberghasted. One of the reasons why I didn’t wind up breastfeeding was because I couldn’t track how much my babes were eating in a sitting. And that is one of the top complaints I hear from my mommy friends as well.
So imagine my surprise when I was chatting with their marketing director, learning that this sleek piece of technology can actually help you track how much your baby eats? There are so many things that new moms worry about. Making sure your baby is eating enough is a BIG one. And this unique set of headphones plugs into your phone, connects with an app and actually alleviates that worry.
Removing one of those worries is a simple fix to help new moms sleep better at night – err, while their baby is sleeping, right? That is something this mama can definitely get behind!
