Christmas is almost here! Do you have a mommy- to- be, or a new mommy on your holiday list? Fill her stocking with baby essentials from Baby Magic! Baby Magic is my very favorite baby skin care brand. I always used Baby Magic products on my own babies. There is nothing sweeter to me than that fresh Baby Magic fragrance.
Baby Magic has been loved by mommies for 65 years! "Baby Magic is a true legacy brand – we believe in tradition. and that nothing bonds parents together like shared experiences. Take comfort in knowing that when you bathe your little one with Baby Magic, that just a few short years ago – your parents were probably doing the same. For over 65 years, we’ve been creating magical baby smiles from one generation to another, and bonds that last a lifetime."
Baby Magic's Original Hair & Body Wash have always been staples in my household when my babies were born. Now my children are grown (the years truly do fly by quickly!) and I have a baby grand daughter. I have been using Baby Magic products on her, too!
Below are a few of my favorite Baby Magic Products.
Baby Magic's Original Hair & Body Wash~ Baby Magic Original Hair & Body Wash has the original scent that moms have loved for generations. This easy-rinse baby wash is gently formulated to preserve the natural moisture of your baby’s skin, and is enhanced with vitamins for extra care. It is also a very nice body wash for mommies to use as well. (It is perfect for shaving your legs!)
Creamy Baby Oil~ Extra sensitive and dry skin needs extra moisturizing with Baby Magic Creamy Baby Oil. This unique blend of oil and lotion helps to soften and seal in the natural moisture of your baby’s skin, and is gentle enough for even the most delicate skin. It is scented like sweet baby rose. I love using it on my own skin, too.
Baby Magic’s Calming Lotion~ Baby Magic Lavender and Chamomile Calming Baby Lotion is a rich and creamy baby lotion enhanced with Vitamins and Aloe formulated with real Lavender and Chamomile extracts to calm your baby.

It’s safe to say that swaddles are one of my favorite baby products, especially for the newest additions. Babies aren’t used to all of that space outside the womb and swaddling them up nice and tight makes them feel safe and secure while they adjust to this big, new world. Another great thing about swaddles unlike some other baby products is that they grow with baby and are useful well beyond the first few months.
Reylin doesn’t quite let us swaddle her nice and tight like when she was a newborn and she’d pretty adamant about keeping her chubby little arms OUT! But she still loves getting cozy in her favorite swaddles and with the hot weather this summer, we like using swaddles instead of blankets when putting her in her car seat and wrapping her up when it’s still a little breezy.
Since I’m all about eco-friendly materials and the healthiest products for my little girl, it’s important to me that everything that she has and that could possibly go into her mouth is also safe! I love that I can count on
Dinky D to offer organic (certified) products that are soft on her new skin and breathable in the heat.
Dinky D’s swaddles are PERFECT for keeping around for cute little photo sessions and always keeping on hand. I also LOVE that they have muslin squares that are super absorbent and perfect for spit up rags or burp clothes. I absolutely LOVE to use these little squares on the ends of my ring slings that my babe likes to chew on to keep them dry and protected!
Here’s some photos of our girl modeling the gorgeous color options and loving on her swaddles!
If you’re looking for an extremely high-quality brand that is stylish and extremely functional Dinky D is an awesome resource and would be the perfect place to find your next baby shower gift.

The Best Swaddles for your Baby Burrito and Beyond!
One of my biggest cravings during pregnancies was garage sales. I know that sounds insane but as a first time nesting mom (on a budget) for some reason I thought I needed to clothe my newborn for the first 5 years of her life in a matter of weeks. While I did get a few scores (like 50 brand new bows for ten cents each). I didn’t end of buying 5 years of clothing.
Pregnancy brain is insane, I swear! I was really excited about all these cute little outfits tho and was thrilled to dress her a thousand times a day. The funny part of this story is that my baby as a sweet, precious newborn hated wearing clothes. As a new, kind of awkward new mommy I hated dressing my baby. I was so afraid of hurting her little arms and didn’t ever want her to be uncomfortable.
One of the greatest things the hospital introduces you to right away is the swaddling method!! This is so huge for any parent and new baby transitioning from their cramped but comfortable and warm womb. My husband watched the nurses and soon was a MASTER at swaddling and baby absolutely loved it. However, the swaddles that hospitals provide are very much hospital swaddles and bringing your own swaddle to the hospital is a MUST!
I love the huge assortment that Swaddle Designs offers and their multi-packs would make the perfect baby shower gift! For my next baby I will definitely be looking through and choosing my favorite swaddle for baby’s birth announcement photos.
This is also how your baby will sleep for the majority of the beginning of his/her life. In all my nesting phase, I sincerely wish that someone would’ve told me how much baby’s need swaddles and I would’ve stocked up on them instead of all these newborn clothes!! She grew so fast and the truth is she didn’t even get through all of the outfits from her baby shower but we will continue to use these swaddles for nursing covers, on the stroller, as emergency burp rags/clean up and lightweight blankets.
We loved cooing over her fresh newborn wrinkles and getting in all the skin time we could and swaddle designs swaddles are so perfect for that! Swaddle Designs makes the softest, eco-friendly and USA produced products that are very affordable. They also make an assortment of other products and have great customer service! I would highly recommend stocking up on some of their adorable swaddles in preparation for a new baby and even buying some for your older baby as they are so versatile and high quality.

Launched in 2005, Marta Sala-Rothwell created Baby Bella Maya after her hand made infant car seat covers and front pack covers were recognized by moms everywhere as the best way to add style and versatility to otherwise plain baby gear. Baby Bella Maya is inspired by Marta’s first daughter, the beautiful Maya. With a wide variety of coordinating gifts and accessories, Baby Bella Maya offers fashion forward and affordable products to add style and flair to meet the needs of modern parents. A commercial airline pilot by trade, Marta also devotes her time to Baby Bella Maya and raising her 4 daughters with husband Bruce on their ranch in Northern California.
My youngest brother and his wife welcomed a baby boy on September 1st. I wanted to get them something special for baby Wesley's first Christmas! I was drawn to Baby Bella Maya's adorable stroller blankets, and I was sent one to review. I received Baby Bella Maya Peek a Blue Stroller Blanket.
Peek a Blue Stroller Blanket
Wrap your little one up in Baby Bella Maya's brand new Peek a Blue Stroller Blanket! One side of this cozy blanket includes a lovely chevron print. The other side is super soft with gray minky plush and it is finished with a nice gray trim. The convenient ties allow you to attach the baby blanket to any infant car seat, stroller or baby front pack carrier, preventing the blanket from falling or bunching. With a perfect mix of fashion and function, our stroller blankets make a great gift for any new baby.
- Dimensions: 30 x 35 inches
- Content: Print 100% Polyester – Plush 100% Polyester
- Care Instructions: Machine wash, cool water, gentle cycle with mild soap, dry low heat
My Experience: While I have not given this amazing blanket to baby Wesley just yet, (I am waiting for Christmas) I opened it up and could not believe how soft it is. It feels like it will keep the baby nice and cozy. I certainly wish I would have had something like this when my babies were small. I can see how convenient this blanket will be with the ties that attach it to the stroller or the carseat. I cannot tell you how many times my own babies would kick off their blankets from their carseats or strollers! It got to be so frustrating! I also love the trendy Chevron design. It is actually a very elegant looking blanket and I can see it being used for outings to nicer places or to church. I know I would have absolutely adored it for any one of my little ones. I can't wait until Christmas so I can give it to my new precious little nephew!

Baby Bella Maya is a line of cutting edge baby/toddler gear and accessories that make fashion fun! The company was started by Marta Sala-Rothwell, who, after noticing the wear on her Baby Bjorn infant carrier, created a fashionable slip cover to prolong its life. Everywhere she went people stopped her to ask where she got it. As an airline pilot and mother of four, she hardly had the time to start a company, but that’s exactly what she did. Her goal became simple. She wanted to design cute accessories for stylish infants and toddlers. Her innovative vision of marrying feminine frill and fashionable edge styles, coupled with the country backdrop, has become the perfect recipe for the exciting celebration of a new baby.)
