We recently rounded up best pants for work over at Corporette, and we were struck by how few brands offered maternity pants for the office anymore — so we went on a Hunt.

Maternity Monday: ‘Everyday’ Bella Band
For me, the hardest time to dress while pregnant was during the first trimester. I still mostly fit into my clothes, but some of my pre-pregnancy wear gave the impression that I just might be bloated and/or wearing something unflattering. I also found that maternity clothes were made for the late second to third trimesters … Read More about Maternity Monday: ‘Everyday’ Bella Band
Postpartum Tuesday: Classic Dream Blanket
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but we looooooved these blankets for our littles. By which I mean they loved them so much that we had to get multiples for each kiddo. They’re like the muslin swaddles in that they get softer and softer as you wash them — but they’re four layers of puffy … Read More about Postpartum Tuesday: Classic Dream Blanket

With summer coming up, if you have little ones who’ll be swimming you’ll want to make sure to take care of their hair — especially if they’ll be spending time in chlorinated pools.

I have finally figured out a good way to store toys in our IKEA Expedit shelves.

Feeding Tuesday: Kids’ Stainless Steel Cups
We’ve had four of these mugs for about a year now, and I think it was a reader who recommended them originally. They’re great for kids! They’re stainless steel, so they’re easy to maintain and free of BPA — and of course, they won’t break if your kid drops them on the floor. They’re also a … Read More about Feeding Tuesday: Kids’ Stainless Steel Cups
The Best Lip Balm for Kids With Chapped Lips
Happy Tuesday! Since I’m sure we’re all recovering from lots of buying this past weekend, I thought I’d give a shoutout to my favorite lip balm for kids with chapped lips: drugstore favoite Neosporin Lip Health Overnight Renewal Therapy.
