What's In My Diaper Bag? Feature with Bump Club + Beyond

What’s in my diaper bag? Well, that’s a loaded question. Because…… I load that thing up! I’ve found that there are some things I always need + I carry those. I try to be prepared to face the day + situation with ease the best I can. Diaper bag goals = ease. I’m sharing here what helps me find ease, peace in the motherhood moments + some happiness too. It’s all in my diaper bag.

When my son, Bowan, was first diagnosed with life threatening food allergies, I was so overwhelmed + honestly… depressed that I would now be responsible for always carrying epinephrine, everywhere. I’d also be responsible for choices that would keep him safe from his allergens. Talk about pressure. I remember crying for a few days when I realized I’d never be able to just run to the park again without a bag or purse, because I would need the epinephrine everywhere. Even in our neighborhood. I was. So. Overwhelmed. Over the years, carrying the epinephrine has become second nature + I’m so thankful that we have great products available to make managing life with food allergies a little easier.

I’m always hauling around Stuck On You Bento Boxes + Name Labels on the kids things, especially water bottles. PediPed shoes are stuffed in my bag. And, so are Ergo Pouch layers.

I love the Vilah Bloom diaper bag because it can be worn as a backpack, which makes the treks to the park so much easier. It’s also make with vegan leather + has a front dispenser for wipes.

I love all of the California Baby products. They are top 8 free + cruelty free. The sunscreen stick + aroma sticks are some of my favorites, I’m always hauling them around. The first California Baby product I ever bought was 8 years ago, when I was pregnant with my oldest son, Breck. I was so excited to use the bubble bath with the adorable bubble wand. Still using it 8 years later!

I love to carry around Janie and Jack bow ties, because…. Just in case! I also love the newsboy hats to help keep the sun out of the eyes.

I’m telling you, I load my diaper bag up. I’m known for hauling around trash trucks, mini garbage trucks + mini toy trash cans. Breck, Bowan + Bridger love the Driven Garbage trucks. I’m always carrying around a notebook or two, hoping I will have a few minutes to make a few notes or write a new list. I love the Rifle Paper notebooks, the beautiful patterns inspire me + my notebooks always seem to come complete with scribbles from my kids. I also love the Logan + Lenora wet bags, I use one to carry my camera. I love the Oh Joy! first Aid case for the epinephrine. Since I have to carry them around, I will do it with a happy pattern.

Allergy Friendly Halloween: Snack Freely Chocolate

Halloween is all about costumes + parties + trick-or-treating and......... Candy. For an allergic child this holiday + community event can often feel isolating. Candy + chocolate, of course is a huge part of Halloween. But, Enjoy Life Foods has a new product that is perfect for Halloween! And, perfect for anytime, really.

Allergy Friendly halloween

Enjoy Life's entire line of products are vegan, gluten-free, free of the top 8 allergens, Non-GMO Project Verified, as well as Kosher + Halal. Enjoy Life goes above + beyond to keep their products safe for customers. Food allergies can produce life-threatening reactions + families want to eat safely + snack freely. Some people choose to follow a vegan diet for many reasons including environmental + animal rights concerns. People with Celiac Disease need to strictly avoid even the most trace amounts of gluten to prevent damage to the intestines. Kosher + Halal certified is very important for religious practices. Non-GMO foods are made without the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology. You can read more about Enjoy Life's Free From Living here.

Did you know that most of the chocolate found in stores contains one or many of the top 8 allergens?  Much of the chocolate available is also made on shared equipment with multiple allergens. Also, did you know that snack or fun size chocolates often have different allergen warnings than the full size products? This means reading labels becomes ever more important + can often be confusing + overwhelming when looking for a safe snack option. This can all make snacking freely on Halloween difficult. One more reason to find a product that is free from allergens + produced in a safe + trusted way.

I'm so excited to have this new snack option that I've teamed up with Enjoy Life to give one lucky winner two packages of the 12 individual snack packs. You can snack freely on Halloween + share some with your trick-or-treaters. You can enter the giveaway on Instagram.

Maternity Photos: treasured moments

Sometimes the moments we live in seem like they will last forever. Sometimes the stage we are in seems like the place we will always find ourselves at. Sometimes the emotions we have are so heavy that we think they will always be here with us. Then, sometimes gradual + sometimes so quick, those moments + stages + emotions are gone. They may be gone in a fade or a flash, but they are gone. 

Maternity Shoot

When the moments + stages + emotions fade, I'm even more thankful that I have photographs that captured what was. The older the kids get, the more we go through + experience, the more I cherish the little piece of time that was frozen for us.

I'm so thankful Kathleen Peachy captured these moments for us as we were preparing for our new baby, Bridger Lee. My due date is still one day away + he has been Earth side with us for one week now. Moments sure can fade quickly. Pregnancy can seem to last forever, yet it can end so quickly with a birth of a baby. I know as the boys grow, I will treasure these photos.

I've loved this maternity + nursing robe from Pink Blush Maternity. It's so beautiful + useful. It was perfect for the hospital stay. I'm hosting a giveaway with Pink Blush + Kathleen Peachy on Instagram, head on over to enter!
