Let’s jump right into it.
1) Diono Radian RXT Convertible Car Seat and Booster ($399.99) The 3-in-1 Radian RXT by Diono is one of the safest cart seats on the market. With a 4.6/5 rating this product is guaranteed not to disappoint and you can drive confidently knowing your child is safe AF – especially because both the rear-facing and forward-facing mode use the five-point harness system. Unlike most car seats the Radian RXT is far from bulky and fits 3-across in most mid-size vehicles. It securely seats children 5-45 lbs in rear-facing mode (which obvi Lincoln is currently in), 20-80 lbs and up to 57″ in forward-facing mode and then converts to a booster for children up to 120 lbs. Like, 120 pounds? At the rate Lincoln is currently gaining weight I’m positive he will be married and out of the house before he weighs that much LOL. Installing the seat into our SUV was extremely easy which TG because my husband has little to no patience *insert eye roll here*. The Diono expires 10 years from Date of Manufacturing unlike quite a few other convertible car seats that expire after 7. Like I mentioned above this post is in partnership with buybuy BABY, however all opinions here are my own and I highly recommend the Diono Radian RXT. It’s worth every single penny IMO and can be purchased here.
2) Skip Hop Explore & More 3-Stage Activity Center ($164.99) It should be no surprise that I’m a monochrome mama. Any toy I can purchase in white or black I’m all ovaaaa it. The Skip Hop Explore & More is by the far is nicest, whitest most monochromeist (yeah I just made that up) activity centre on the market and the price tag is totally reasonable. The activity center was actually designed in collaboration with a pediatrician and is recommended for babies 4+ months. Not only can your babe sit, swivel, bounce and play but they can also stand (obvi once they are older) and play with the toys. The toys can easily be removed and it turns into a beautiful play table that isn’t an eyesore in your living room. Click here to purchase the activity center.
3) UPPAbaby Vista in Jake ($1199.99) I like to consider the UPPAbaby Vista the Cadillac of strollers. It’s expensive but lemme tell you it’s ah-freakin-mazing. While pregnant (heck even during the trying to conceive phase) I spent hours upon hours online trying to decide which stroller I wanted. At first I was leaning towards the Bugaboo Cameleon3 but I’ll be honest the only reason I even considered the Bugaboo was simply because of the “name” and it looked high-end butttt I knew deep down inside I wanted double stroller because it only made sense for our growing family. After coming across the Vista and reading all the incredible reviews I was sold. At this point price didn’t matter because I knew it would be something I would use for MANY years and the quality was outstanding. The Vista comes with a bassinet that can be used from birth up to 20lbs and a rumble seat that can be used from 3m to 50lbs. UPPAbaby has a variety of attachments including the PiggyBack board which turns allows you to conveniently transport up to 3 children. Cool right? Yep. You can purchase the UPPAbaby Vista here.
4) SKIP HOP Greenwich Simply Chic Diaper Backpack in Smoke ($139.99) Don’t make the same mistake I did and purchase a purse style diaper bag – they are so damn unpractical. Like I’m sorry but unless God is going to gift you with another set of arms it’s just not possible to carry your kid, a diaper bag, a snack cup of puffs (cause kids) and wtvr else needed to just get your ass outta the door sooooo being able to throw the backpack on and run out the door is ah-may-zing. Backpack style diaper bags are where it’s at and errrbody needs one… like yesterday. This particular diaper bag has 9 spacious pockets, stroller straps (that are very easy to clip and un-clip) and is much bigger in person then I imagined it would be! Like the friggen thing holds up to a 15″ laptop! I honestly can’t think of one negative thing about this bag… it’s THAT good. Click here for a VIP tour inside my bag and what I like to consider “diaper bag essentials.” You can purchase this exact bag here at buybuy BABY.
Bloom Fresco High Chair ($599.99+) I swear every single person who enters my home for the first time comments on our Bloom Fresco high chair. If I had a dollar for every time someone said “omg – that is the coolest looking highchair ever” or “dude is that a rocket ship” or “can I steal it” I would have enough money to buy every Bloom Fresco High Chair buybuy BABY carries LOL. Like the stroller, I spent an embarrassing amount of hours researching high chairs and came to the conclusion that I needed the Bloom Fresco. Not only does this chair look incredibly modern and contemporary but it also swivels 360-degrees and has a pneumatic height adjuster. It’s easy AF to wipe down and has 3 recline positions which are newborn cradle, semi-recline and upright. Buybuy BABY sells the white (which can be purchased here) and black base (here) and seat pads in a variety of different colours.
So there you have it folks. These are five baby items that I am obsessed w/ and truly couldn’t live without. Like I mentioned above everything can be purchased on the buybuy BABY website.
