Our first outing + Sam's Club Baby Club

We did it! We took baby Lucia out for the first time (besides a trip to her pediatrician) this week. Where did we go? To Sam's Club to stock up on baby essentials!

Sam's Club not offers great value on top baby brands but it allows busy parents the flexibility and convenience of shopping in store, placing an order on line (with free shipping), picking up items locally or signing up for their automated subscription service. 

If you are looking for a faster, easier way to buy in stock items locally, take advantage of their Club Pickup service. With this "personal shopper" feature, members can place an order online and have  purchased items waiting at their local club  - all available for pick up at your own convenience! 

Sam's Club also offers the option to subscribe to their automatic subscription service. Simply set up weekly/monthly deliveries and all your baby and household products will be delivered directly to your door.

She's in there! Baby wearing dads are the best

We stocked up on diapers, wipes, baby detergent, diaper cream and for when I'm ready to stop nursing, formula

SPECIAL OFFER From now through October 31, anyone that joins Sam’s Club using this link, will receive $80 in instant savings on baby items like diapers, wipes, formula!

Reading Corner: Halloween Favorites

Jack could not wait until October to put on his new skeleton pjs and dive into some Halloween reading. Below are his current favorite spooky and fun books. Perfect for kids ages 3-6, these books are sure to keep your little ones entertained!

AVA THE MONSTER SLAYER Written by Lisa Maggiore and Illustrated by Ross Felten 
Ava the Monster Slayer tells the story of a young girl who rescues her favorite stuffed piggy from a monster-infested basement, all while donning her signature glasses, her brother’s superhero cape, her rain boots, and a sparkly princess crown. Why leave all the fighting and world-saving to the guys? Ava the Monster Slayer teaches both girls and boys that women can be strong, be brave, and courageous.

I WANT TO EAT YOUR BOOKS Written by Karin Lefranc and Tyler Parker
The perfect monster book for little ones who want a thrill but aren’t looking for anything too scary, this book shares the story of a hungry zombie who stumbles into a school looking for books to consume. It’s up to the kids to teach him how books are for reading, not eating! This monster book is silly and fun with a strong message about kindness, friendship and value of books. The little zombie teaches kids not to jump to conclusions and to give everyone a chance. 

THE RUNAWAY PUMPKIN: A HALLOWEEN ADVENTURE STORY Written by Anne Margaret Lewis and Illustrated by Aaron Zenz
A little Halloween pumpkin announces that he is ready for a Halloween adventure and prepares to set out on the exploration of a lifetime. His attentive and caring mother wants to make sure he’s prepared before he takes that first step outside. This book encourages kids to use their imaginations and to go on adventures. *Jack loved all three books but he said this was his favorite one!

My favorite pregnancy and baby products = Part V

I'm back with the last round of favorite pregnancy and baby products. Next time you see these products being used, baby Lucia will be here! This week I'm sharing everything from teething jewelry for me to wear and baby to enjoy to soft warm swaddle blankets. Sit back, relax, grab a cup of coffee...

Just Born designs products with parents and babies in mind, they expertly understand the importance of comfort, safety, durability and style.  Available in a variety of styles, this plush terry cotton hippo hooded towel is super soft and warm. 

Just Born is sold at Buy Buy Baby and Babies R’ Us, and they offer a wide range of products including swaddles, wear-a-blankets, bath products and cozy blankets. 

Inspired by busy moms on the go, Little Teether offers a complete line of teething necklaces at amazing prices. All of their necklaces are BPA, phthalates, lead, cadmium and heavy metals free and come in a variety of bead shapes, colors and necklace styles.

I became a huge fan of teething necklaces when Dylan first started teething (at a super early age). Not only did I get to wear a stylish necklace that I loved but Dylan was occupied, entertained and it helped his little sensitive gums. A win, win for both of us!

It's no secret that I love to swaddle my babies, this breathable, lightweight cotton flannel blanket by SwaddleDesigns has me so excited to do it all over again! Featuring a stylish design and an adorable decorative edge, this multi functional blanket is generously sized and can serve not only as a swaddle but as a sunshield, play mat for tummy time or as a breastfeeding cover.

If you are not yet familiar with Feltman Brothers let me tell you a little bit about this iconic company. Feldman offers a distinctive collection of finely crafted, classic styled clothing and accessories for little ones. Founded in 1916, Feltman's has a long history of providing high quality, exquisitely styled, hand embroidered clothing for baby boys and girls. Feltman products include take home outfits, layette, special occasion gowns and accessories and holiday wear and much more! 

Made from the softest Pima cotton - seriously, I've never felt anything so soft in my life - this adorable romper features a delicate hand embroidered bow and roses, perfect for a little girl. 

This adorable 100% cotton knit sweater set is perfect for any special occasion. The top of the tunic features popcorn design knitting with a delicate ribbon interlaced and tied in a bow. The scallopped edging on the sleeves and bottom of the pants add just the right touch of elegance.
