Life with B | Mandan, ND | Personal

It crazy to think it has been over 3 months since we welcomed little Bristol into the world. The past few months have been filled with many laughs, a few "what the heck are we doing" moments, and lots of pictures! While the first few weeks were hard with the lack of sleep, adjustment to scheduling, and learning how to be a mom, we are finally settled into this lifestyle and loving every minute :) 

If you have been following my personal Instagram page I post an obnoxious amount of Bristol pictures. I am frequently getting messages requesting more info on the products we use and love that are featured in my posts. I figured what better place to show off what we love then by doing what I love...photography! This blog has a few of our current "must have" items for every infant :) I will try and do similar posts as she grows and we find more things we love!

We are OBSESSED with Ever Iris Designs Bows! We have one in practically every color and she wears them every single day. So 99% of the images I post she has one on. Why do I love them? They stretch! Unlike my newborn posing headbands that tie in the back, these stretch with Bristol as she grows. We had a hard time finding ones that fit her little head when she was born, but these worked from day 1! They are soft and obviously adorable. The talented crew at Ever Iris Designs is offering 20% off to all my photography/personal followers during the month of December using the code MELANIE20.

The Lucy Darling shop gives every parent the opportunity to document each milestone in their child's life without being a professional photographer. We were lucky enough to receive both the monthly grow stickers along with the first holiday stickers from some special friends in our lives. These are a mix of iPhone and Canon pictures :)

Hanna Andersson organic clothing. Baby skin is super sensitive, I love knowing that little B is wearing pure organic cotton clothing that contains no chemicals! Plus my nephew was a model for the company when he was younger, so I am totally hooked :) 
 

Diapers, cute? Yeah...super cute! oh and I must mention, ORGANIC! I am over the moon in love with Honest Company Diapers. They ship straight to your door, so whenever we are snowed in, thanks to the North Dakota snowstorms recently, diapers arrives right at our doorstep. 

Last but certainly not least, my favorite product and hands down the number one product for any new parent is the DockATot. This amazing little thing is wonderful. It fits snug between my husband and I so Bristol is able to co-sleep with us. It has built up sidewalls, all made out of a breathable mattress, so that we are not able to roll onto her and she can't roll out. It's extremely lightweight and much smaller then a pack-and-play so it is our go-to for traveling to and from our ranch. I also love the washable, interchangeable cover.

I have always enjoyed shopping, and love when people contact me requesting more info on the products we use for Bristol. I spend numerous hours researching products and searching out new cool organic items for our family. Thanks to a little push from my Aunt, I have decided to do something a little risky, I will be opening an Baby Boutique featuring Organic and All-Natural Products in 2017! Be on the lookout for more information :)
