As of a month ago, I’m a new mom all over again. Since we welcomed our baby girl into the world I feel like I’ve had to have a refresher on life with a newborn. That said, I’m happy to say that we’ve been adjusting well thanks to these new mom & baby favorites!
Ronald McDonald House Charities®
Ronald McDonald House Charities® have been around for years and they are extremely instrumental in countries and regions around the world. Growing up I always would hear about the shelter that the Ronald McDonald House would provide to families with children that needed to travel for medical care – but the Ronald McDonald House Charities do so much more than that.
Within it’s global network of chapters, The RMHC operates within three core programs: Ronald McDonald House, Ronald McDonald Family Room, and the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile. RMHC’s are able to provide comfort to families in the hospital, provide a home away from home for families that travel far for medical care, and also bring medical, dental, and health care resources to underserved communities.

If you read my Baby & Toddler Favorites post earlier this year, then you already know that I’m a huge fan of Baby Magic products. I’ve been using them since 2016 when my oldest son was born and no other baby shampoo/lotion compares.
Since our daughter was born we’ve been using the Baby Magic Gentle Baby Lotion and Gentle Hair and Body Wash and it has been perfect for her sensitive baby skin. The Gentle Baby Lotion has that classic scent that we all know and love while the Gentle Baby Hair and Body wash lathers up perfectly and is tear and sulfate free. The Gentle Baby Hair and Body was is also enriched with nourishing Calendula and Coconut Oil that leaves her skin soft and clean as she adjusts to life outside of the womb.
That said, I highly recommend Baby Magic products to new parents especially since they’re hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and free from sulfates, dyes, parabens and phthalates. You can grab the Gentle Baby Lotion and Gentle Hair and Body wash here.
Rock from the Sky
When I had my second son, I quickly learned the importance of properly introducing the idea of a new sibling to your oldest child to prevent any sibling rivalry. That said, I’ve been intentional about spending quality time with both boys since baby sister arrived. While my oldest is off to school, my youngest son and I get to spend a lot of quality time together and reading books has become one of our favorite ways to spend it.
Rock from the Sky, by Jon Klassen from Candlewick Press is a new family favorite and highly requested by both of my boys.
Author/illustrator Jon Klassen is highly celebrated and respected in the children’s book world and for good reason! His Hat Trilogy picture books are New York Times bestsellers and Rock From The Sky lives up to the hype. I’ve literally laughed out loud reading this book and I’m sure it’ll be a hit with your family as well. Grab your copy here.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a huge advocate for proper postpartum care. Thankfully KeaBabies makes it easy to ease into your new routine while ensuring that you put your needs first. As a c-section mama, I know first-hand just how important it is to have proper abdominal and back support after delivering your precious baby.
That’s why I love the 3-in1 Postpartum Recovery Support Belt from KeaBabies. It helps realign the body and posture postpartum while also supporting the spine for breastfeeding (or exclusive pumping in my case) and returns hips to their pre-pregnancy position.
KeaBabies also makes it easy to keep baby close while also allowing you to be hands-free. The KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is made of high-quality material that provides the perfect stretch so that you can carry baby in comfort. It also provides an even weight distribution to ensure proper back support.
You can check out the 3-in-1 Postpartum Recovery Support Belt and Baby Wrap Carrier (& be sure to use millennialsahm10 to get 10% off your purchase) here. Also be sure to check out their Facebook Community for a little encouragement on your motherhood journey.
One thing I wish someone would’ve told me about parenthood was that there will be a lot of interesting stains that you encounter. I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve had to toss a ton of super cute baby outfits due to the beloved blow-outs or pesky food stains that I couldn’t remove. However, thanks to Oxiclean Free & Clear, I can stop tossing out those cute clothes and easily remove those tough stains.
Oxiclean Free & Clear is color safe and gentle enough to be used in every load. Not to mention, the stain fighting power of Oxiclean is free of dyes, perfumes, chlorine, and optical brighteners. So if you’re a new mom, I highly recommend grabbing a bottle and adding it to your laundry routine. You can find Oxiclean Free & Clear here.

Hoppy & Poppie PinkCheeks Gift Box is filled with books, a blanket, and more in an effort to help you to foster whole family communication while encouraging emotional intelligence for kids.
My youngest son loves the board books and my oldest is a huge fan of the Hoppy and Poppie PinkCheeks Plush emotion Plush and wristbands. I’m huge on allowing my boys to express themselves and this has been a great way for them to see the emotions and helps reinforce the soft skills of empathy. They also have a wonderful emotional Intelligence guide that you can get for free here.
