My Hormones Made Me Do It

day11We cannot get over how cute is is when parents dress their kids in stripes. I mean, seriously? These Yala baby and toddler outfits are too cute for words. They come in long sleeve onesies and two piece sets. They are made of super soft bamboo and make for the perfect Christmas morning outfit. Sizes run from newborn to 3T. Get a set or two before they run out!

See how cute Stephani’s kids are wearing their matching Yala red striped pajamas!


Based in Costa Mesa, Gabby Caperon designed the Beco Baby Carrier after she realized the carrier she was using left her with an achy back. Being an active sailor and rock climber, Gaby decided she needed something with great weight distribution, stylish design, and perfect ergonomics. Thus the Beco Baby Carrier was born.

The Gemini Baby Carrier has straps that evenly distribute the baby’s weight throughout your shoulders and hips (versus just your shoulders like other carriers). You are able to wear the baby four ways, on the front facing in, on the front facing out, hip carry, or back carry. Each carrier comes with a foldable head rest and adjustable base for growing baby.

A couple of features on the Beco:

  • wide padded shoulder straps for ultimate comfort
  • adjustable chest strap for even weight distribution
  • tall & wide body supports growing baby in the proper ergonomic position
  • safety buckles prevent accidental opening
  • wide padded waist belt for lumbar support
  • width alternating base to accomodate small babies & to enable for facing out position
  • adjustable waist belt

Xpecting carries the Beco Baby Carrier in various colors and prints for $129

day9Where do we even start with Aden+Anais? If you don’t own any of the Aden+Anais swaddles, head on run over to Xpecting and get some today. The A+A swaddles are made of 100% natural cotton muslin. They are known for their breathability, generous size, multiple uses including stroller cover, burp cloth, tummy time, blanket, changing table cover, and more. The more you wash the swaddle, the softer they get. The swaddles come in a huge selection of colors and prints.

As if the classic muslin swaddles couldn’t get any softer, they came out with a bamboo set. You’ll wish they made adult size blankets that soft!

Xpecting sells Aden+Anais swaddles starting at $39.95. We also carry a great selection of their other products such as Burpy Bibs, Crib Sheets, Cozy Sleeping Bags, Wash Cloths, and more!

day8A great pair of pajamas can sure make a gal feel and sleep better. All of our pajamas are maternity and nursing friendly. Skip out on wearing hubby’s old college t-shirt and spring for a pair of comfortable maternity pajamas. You’ll wish you never had to take them off because they’re so soft.

day7Little Giraffe makes the softest blankets you’ll ever find. You’ll wish they made their entire line of baby items in adult sizes. From socks to onesies to blankets (they make throw blankets for adults now!), they’re all as soft as a ….. baby’s bum! The best part is, they stay soft even after they’ve been washed and thrashed by baby. Their blankets are thick and soft enough to set on the ground for tummy time or to use as a stroller blanket in the colder months.
