Blog Series: Heidi's Guide!

Woo hoo! We are on day three of my series, A Real Mom's Guide, and I hope you are loving it!! I am so grateful to the amazing mommas I've featured so far, and there are still more to come! Today I'm featuring Heidi from Best Dressed Babes :) Enjoy!

Hi There! I’m Heidi from Best Dressed Babes where I blog about kid’s fashion without breaking the bank.  I love bargain shopping, diy projects, and finding the perfect accessories. 

I'm so excited to be joining this series!  I have 2 little ones 22 months apart.  My youngest JUST turned 1 and I couldn't have survived 2 under 2 without most of these essentials!

Aden & Anais Blankets
Both of my babe's were born in the summer. I wanted them covered, but didn't want them to over heat.  These breathable blankets were our go to for just about everything.  We used them as swaddles, carseat covers, blankets to lay on the floor on, snuggle blankets for the car, and even burp clothes while we were out and about.  They get softer with each wash and are truly the best blankets around!

Homedics Sound Spa

Babies LOVE white noise!  Both of my babes have this sound spa and both were sleeping through the night very young.  Not sure if the 2 are related, but I'm not chancing it!  This particular sound spa has several different noises (we use ocean) and a projector for the ceiling.
Boon Grass Drying Rack
This rack is perfect for holding all the small bottle and sippy cup pieces.  I'm a freak about having baby stuff all on my counter.  This kept everything in one spot without looking like a "baby" object on the counter.  Best part?  It can be washed in the dishwasher.

Graco 4 in 1 High chair
I am SO SO glad that we got this highchair with my first.  Not only is it a high chair, but it can be used in 4 different ways.  Currently we are able to use the highchair part for my youngest and the toddler booster for my oldest.  We bought ONE chair and BOTH kids can use it.  The trays come off easily for cleanup and the pad/straps can be washed in washing machine too!  Definitely a great highchair that can grow with your child!

Britax B-Agile Double Stroller
Since I had two so close I needed a double stroller.  There was no way I was letting my 22 month old son rip roar around while we were out and about and no way could he handle standing on a sit and stand.  There was just no way.  What I loved most about this stroller was the ability for either side to lay completely flat.  I was able to put my newborn in this (with a JJ Cole insert) from day one.  Which is another product I LOVED.  This made it so there was no expensive conversion bar to buy! This stroller is great both indoors and outdoors and fits through all standard doorways. Oh and it is SO easy to fold up and throw in my trunk.

...and for my cocktail!  This doesn't have a name, but it is PERFECT for a hot summer day!
Diet Sierra Mist
Bacardi Mango
Malibu Orange
Fill your glass with ice.  Add one shot of Bacardi, one shot of Malibu, and then fill the rest of the glass with diet sierra mist.  So yummy!
