    Oh Lovely Day January Goodies Guide Giveaway

    Oh Lovely Day goodies guide giveaway | ohlovelyday.com

    Remember those mom and baby giveaways I did last year? Well they became so popular that they inspired a new element to Oh Lovely Day. I’ve got something exciting in the works – think a guide to all of my favorite mom and kiddo brands, products, and shops – all in one place! And I decided to bring the giveaways back, but in 2015 I’ll be having one monthly giveaway dedicated to all of those goodies I have become obsessed with: those momma lifesavers, the adorable kiddo clothing, baby gear I can’t live without, cool gadgets, and so much more. And boy do we have a good one to kick off the new year! Because, you see all that ridiculously good stuff up there right? Yeah, one of you is totally getting it all.

    Your eyes are not deceiving you – there is such good stuff in this one, like a dream blanket from Aden + Anais and one of their new teethers (their dream blankets are baby butt soft you guys!) And there is credit to pick out your favorite real life historial hero from Wee Rascals (my boys love their Lincoln but I really want the Amelia Earhart in my size). You’re also getting shop credit to VONBON to stock up on the cutest baby essentials – their prints are my favorite. For you supplementers and bottle feeders, there’s the Baby Brezza Formula Pro (this thing is saving my life right now with my formula supplementing and if you still have to do a bottle for a late night feeding you are going to want to marry this machine.) One of my very favorite blanket makers, Coveted Things, is giving you your choice of any of their scarf swaddles, and you won’t be able to choose just one because they are all so damn good. You’ll get not one, but two cutie clips from Ryan and Rose to clip your babe’s favorite paci, teether, or lovey to them at all times. I’m always losing pacis guys – I never have one when I need it. Problem solved! And I haven’t forgotten you nursing mamas – you’ll get a gift pack of nursing goodies (including the milksaver, the nursing blend supplement, nursing tea, nursing pads, and freeze trays) that will help you boost, collect, and store your milk from Milkies. And last, but certainly not least, you’ll win a brand new and improved 2015 UPPAbaby Vista! I could not be more jealous of the winner, because the new Vista is the bomb. If you don’t already know, the Vista is what I’ve been using myself since I became a mom and shared my love for it many times including here and here.

    Enter below (you can do some or all of the entries) – the giveaway ends on 2/2/15 at 8:00 pm PST and the winner will be announced in the widget below sometime on 2/3/15. The winner must respond within 48 hours to the notification email or a new winner will be chosen. Any entries that don’t follow the instructions will not count. I cannot answer individual questions regarding your entries or this giveaway. Good luck!

    Adjusting to Being a Mom of 2

    Adjusting to life as a mom of two | Oh Lovely Day

    I don’t know how it happened, but suddenly I’m 5 months into my whole “mom of two” experience. I have to tell you, it is flying by! Adding a second baby definitely is a game changer in many ways. While there is chaos, a lot of juggling, and sometimes tears, there is also so much love and joy. And the moments when Charlie just wants to entertain or love on his baby brother, and I see Calvin look at him with so much wonder and love, my heart bursts and I stop and think “this! this is what it is all about!” Read More »

    Essentials for Babies From Birth to 4 Months

    My Favorite Things For Baby 0-4 Months | Oh Lovely DayNow that Calvin has passed the 4 month mark, I can look back and see that I had definite favorites that were absolute essentials for me during that early time.

Here are my top 10 things for life with a baby, 0-4 months edition. The headings are linked in case you want to buy any of these for yourself and your babes. Read More »


    The New 4Moms MamaRoo + A Giveaway

    4Moms MamaRoo Giveaway on Oh Lovely Day

    If you follow me on instagram you are already well aware of my love of 4Moms products. Both the mamaRoo and the rockaRoo get a lot of love in our house. Since about day 3 of life, Calvin has had a special bond with his mamaRoo. In those early days it allowed me time to get a shower and…wait for it…blow dry my hair! And as the mother of two, it gave me precious time with my oldest without has well. I was already feeling so guilty by always having to say “just a minute, I’m changing Calvin’s diaper” or “maybe later buddy, I have to feed your brother.” So if I wasn’t changing a diaper or nursing, I could give Charlie a turn at some undivided momma attention thanks to the mamaRoo.

    4Moms MamaRoo Giveaway on Oh Lovely Day

    Let me quickly shed a tear at how tiny Calvin was and how big he is already. I mean, look how teeeeeny! I didn’t take nearly enough photos of him in the mamaRoo in the early days, mostly because I was taking advantage of that time. Oh, that precious free time… But that is during week one, when he would be in dreamland for hours in the mamaRoo (and that’s the infant insert you see under him.)

    At four months in, we still use the mamaRoo daily. While Calvin doesn’t nap in it anymore (mostly because we’ve transitioned to 3 naps a day in his crib), he does love to sit in it and stare at the mobile. It calms him, so I usually put him in it for 15 minutes or so before naptime. And if he has been fed, he’s perfectly content to chill in there and give me time to clean out the dishwasher, do a load of laundry, run to the bathroom, and maybe even get a quick blog post edited. Between a playmat, a bouncer, an exersaucer, and the mamaRoo, the mamaRoo wins every time. I get maybe 15 minutes with the other stuff, but with the mamaRoo? It gives me so much time if I need it.

    (don’t let his face fool you, he freaking loves this thing – he just likes to mean mug)

    And now there’s an all new mamaRoo, that has all of the magic happy baby fairy dust of the old version, but it also has an iPhone app and pairs with your phone. So you can control the power, motion, speed, and sounds without actually getting close to it, which is amazing considering your baby is going to be fast asleep in this thing and you won’t want to risk waking them with an on foot approach. There will be a time when you put the mamaRoo in the nursery and for a while it is all baby will sleep in. I can almost guarantee it. So being able to control it from afar is brilliant.

    Because I love the mamaRoo and all of you, I’ve partnered with 4Moms to give one mamaRoo away. So, who wants one?
