This is an epic weekend for the Baggerly family! With Saturday's birthday for Miss Adelaide and Sunday's baby shower, we are so excited to have a family filled weekend celebrating how each of our children are growing! I wanted to send a heart-felt thank you out to some of the vendors who are working with my mom and sister to make the shower tomorrow a success!
I've realized one of the things I struggle with as a working momma is asking for help. I would be lying if I told you I think I'm good at this because my family and friends are always saying to me, 'please just ask!!!!' and I'm like 'I do!' and they go, 'No, not really. We're serious!'. This is the point of a momtribe, especially when you're working full-time, even more then 1 job. So with the hubby on the road, most of our family out of town, a full-time job, Balancing By Design picking up, a toddler and this pregnancy, I'm working really hard to ask for help - and admitting it.
I've spent the last month reviewing and sharing some of the things and habits I'm working on while I prepare to be a Momma of 2 under 2. I wanted to simplify a full list of items for everyone by sharing my Amazon storefront with you, too!
You can shop ALL of the registry items I reviewed PLUS those on my personal registry here. Once you get to my storefront, click on the 'Baby Registry' section and you'll be able to check out all of these awesome #workingmomma time saving products and purchase with Prime - at NO additional cost to you! For more details on each item, check out the pictures in this post on my instagram feed from my blog or on instagram here.
Anyone else out there overwhelmed by stroller options? They are so expensive, there are so many brands and I feel like you can really develop FOMO from picking out the wrong stroller (ok, maybe it's just me?!). I really thought I would be one of those awesome moms who 'baby-carries' everywhere, but after having Adelaide, I was diagnosed with Thumb Tendonitis and 'mom shoulder' which was really painful and made it really hard to carry her around. Don't get me wrong, I pushed through, but when it comes to walking through grocery stores, the mall, going on walks, going back to school or clothes shopping or frankly traveling through the airport ....or going to the beach...I always fall back on putting everything into my stroller. She's happy, I'm not in pain, and I have a place for both our water bottles!
I spent a lot of time researching double strollers once I found out we were expecting baby #2. Sometimes, I wish I had just purchased one the first time around...

I’ve started to share some of my must-haves for Baby #2’s registry and wanted to focus today on a staple - DIAPERS! When I had Miss A I really only knew about a couple of brands and was told “diapers are so expensive, make sure you budget a LOT for them.” What I didn’t realize is that the best ones to buy for us:
Come in bulk
Are soft and SUPER absorbent to survive our little kiddo’s movements
Have a wetness indicator so you can SEE when they are wet
I’ve tried a ton. One of my new favorites I recently discovered is theMember’s Mark Premium Baby Diapers, a private label exclusive to Sam’s Club. They have a new premium ULTRASOFT® MAX LINER, are hypoallergenic, provide a ton of savings (especially when buying in bulk) and are currently running a sale until September 15th where Sam’s Club Member’s Mark Diapers and Wipes are $3 off. Oh, and they ha...
