Organizing Thursday: Stroller Organizer

The full-sized stroller that I use is the Uppababy Cruz. When deciding what accessories to purchase for it, I found through my research that people had a lot of complaints about the Uppababy cup holder, not to mention it was way overpriced. I received this Skip Hop version from my registry and really like it. It holds coffee cups, water bottles, and anything else you can cram inside. The material is stretchy, so it accommodates oddly-shaped toys or sippy cups. My routine is that I put my car keys in the front little zip pouch and my cell phone in the middle section. That way I always know where those two important items are so I’m not fishing around in my bag (that’s usually stored away in the bottom stroller compartment). I know there’s a million versions of this type of stroller organizer, so if you like the one you have, feel free to give it a shout-out! This is $16–$30 at Amazon, eligible for Prime and free returns. Skip Hop Stroller Organizer

Make My Life Easier Thursday: Switch Smart Plug

I owe this pick to my husband. I never would have thought to buy a gadget like this, but it’s amazing for people like me who are always wondering, “Did I remember to turn off the [insert appliance name]?” Especially now that we have a baby who sometimes sleeps with a space heater in his room, this has eliminated that internal gasp I have on the subway when I can’t remember if I turned it off — and the desperate prayer that my house isn’t burning down when I’m at work. This is a special outlet that you can control with the WeMo app and/or Alexa to turn it on or off remotely, or even set the outlet on a timer for the lamps in your home. It’s made my life easier in so many ways, and we probably have about five or six of them. It would never have occurred to me to spend money on outlets, of all things, but this product is a game changer for me. Now I can devote my mental energy to more productive things. The plug is $35 at Amazon. WeMo Switch Smart Plug

Postpartum Tuesday: Classic Dream Blanket

Classic Dream Blanket -- loved this!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 muslin so they’re a nice actual blanket when your kiddo’s old enough for one. And they’re just the right size for the toddler who likes to wear a blanket in that Superman kind of way (whether awake or asleep). My youngest, H, is now sleeping with both his and his older brother’s remaining blanket because his older brother finally aged out of needing it. They’re $39.95 at Amazon in a zillion different fun prints. aden + anais Classic Dream Blanket

Postpartum Tuesday: Rock ‘n Play Sleeper with SmartConnect

We loved the Rock ‘n Play when the kids were little — it was great for both boys, although they used them during very different age ranges. For J, I think it was 4–8 months, whereas H was pretty much done with it at 3 months. Ladies, if you don’t know this, the newer ones are controllable from a smart device, and you can save the settings your baby likes the most. I was just at a baby shower for a neighbor, and the moms were noting that the features like SmartConnect and the app really are essential for babies these days — who knew? The Rock ‘n Play is $78 at Amazon but is also available at a lot of other places. Fisher-Price Deluxe Auto Rock ‘n Play Sleeper with SmartConnect

Family Friday: Parent Console

BabyJogger Universal Parent Console AttachmentFor those of you who are still in the stroller years, what are your favorite consoles? We almost never use our big stroller now unless we’re on vacation (H prefers to walk) but I am weirdly excited to see that they added a smart cell phone pocket on the outside of the parent console we always liked for our Baby Jogger City Elite stroller. (Oooh, this other console at Amazon has great reviews, a cell phone pocket, AND a zippered pocket. Nice.) The pictured stroller organizer is $29 at Nordstrom. Universal Parent Console Attachment

Psst: as I mentioned earlier today at Corporette — if you’re a Level 2-4 cardholder at Nordstrom and haven’t yet declared your Personal 10 Point day, you have until 12/24 to do so. Their big sale won’t start until 12/25, but they’ve already quietly started marking things down, so if you have any time today to take a swing through the site, do try to do so. Some great basics to stock up on (and many are washable, also) include this faux wrap dress, these pants, this blouse, or, for the weekend, these leggings or some denim.

Postpartum Tuesday: On-The-Go Print Diaper Clutch

When we did our roundup of How to Build a Work Wardrobe at Lands’ End last week at Corporette, I noticed that they have a kind of awesome diaper clutch that looks like a great, basic, affordable option. It has a removable changing pad for your kiddo and a few zippered pockets — just what you need, nothing more and nothing less. It comes in the pictured gray print and the same print in navy, as well as black with a heart print inside. It’s $29.95, but with today’s deal of 50% off on one full-price item, it becomes $14.97. On-The-Go Print Diaper Clutch
