A Few Of My Favourite Things...July 2019

As mothers (and fathers), we sometimes lose track of what makes us tick, what makes our hearts leap. The intention of this little list is to remind you that what you love is important. What moves you is important. Chase it, find it, hold it close. You can rediscover yourself in small ways, and in doing that, become a better parent. One that is happier, more content, more available to their children.

This is the list of what I love this month. What did you find? Leave a comment and let me know what moved you this month!

1. Mosquito Stickers

Beluga Baby Loves Mosquito Stickers for Kids

I don’t know about you, but I love being outside in the summertime especially as the sun is setting. What I don’t love are those thirsty little bloodsucking mosquitoes. I’m also not a huge fan of Deet, especially for kids. I’ve recently discovered these non-toxic and kid-friendly (Deet-free) stickers that keep mosquitoes away. You need 4 or 5 of them on your clothes if you’re an adult, but at $12 for 90, it’s totally worth it.

2. Eastvan Bees Beeswax Food Wraps

Beluga Baby Wraps Loves Beeswax Food Savers

I’ve been trying to cut down on garbage and waste, and this was an easy substitute that my husband also loves! I even fold them up and seal the edges to make a ziploc bag substitute for my toddler’s snacks.

3. LifeVac

Beluga Baby Loves Life Vac

With 26 confirmed lives saved, this device removes blockages for babies, children, and adults who are choking. It’s easy to use, FDA approved, and could mean the difference between life and death for your family. I love the peace of mind that comes from having this device.

4. @busytoddler on Instagram

Beluga Baby loves @busytoddler on instagram

This Instagram account is a no-nonsense guide to toddler “busy” activities that don’t break the bank, and that your kids will hang out and do. I use it as inspiration when I need that half an hour break and I don’t want my toddler to have screen time. Not that I don’t believe in screen time, because, let’s face it, Kids Netflix is a parents best friend (in moderation).


5. Where The Crawdads Sing

I can’t stop thinking about this beautiful book. It’s one of those rare combinations of page-turner and power that sticks with you. I actually can’t wait to read it again, (and I’m not one to re-read books often).

The Samara Wrap - From Tragedy to Hope

I reached out to Mamas for Mamas see if we could design a charity wrap together, with $5 from each wrap donated to their cause. I asked if they had a particular mama they wanted to name the wrap after, and that’s when this project became larger and more touching than I ever could have imagined.

This is the story they wrote back with, asking for us to name the wrap - The Samara.
