The world tells us being a mom is the most amazing thing in the world. Being a wife and mother are my greatest achievements; however, motherhood didn’t always come easy to me and it definitely doesn’t always feel like the most amazing thing.
It doesn’t help that social media glamorizes motherhood as well. All you see when you scroll on Instagram is perfectly curated pictures and videos of women crushing motherhood.
I kid you not, last week my kids and I were sprinting out of a clothing store because my newly potty trained 2-year-old pooped on the ground under a clothing rack. Needless to say, mommin’ ain’t easy, but there are so many products out there to make your life just a little bit easier!
1. Ingy Bingy Band: If you’re frustrated that your baby’s newborn pacifier keeps falling out then the Ingy Bingy Band is the product for you! The Ingy Bingy Band is a pacifier wristband that velcros around baby’s wrist to help them self-soothe from as early as 4 months. Any infant pacifier attaches to this sanity saving pacifier bracelet. This pacifier wristband saves you time and frustration because, your baby will always have access to their pacifier on their own. Stop pausing all of your daily activities because you have to keep putting your baby’s pacifier back in their mouth. Get an Ingy Bingy Band today!
2. Baby Carrier: You will quickly learn that you can do a lot of things with a baby on your hip or attached to your breast. However, doing things one-handed makes it take a lot longer and your arms will fatigue fast! A baby carrier allows you to keep your baby close while you can still do everything with both hands! The most popular brands include: Ergobaby, Happy Baby, Moby, Kyte Baby, and Solly Baby. I’ve had a generic Infantino baby carrier that has lasted over four years so you don’t have to break the bank to get a carrier that will last!
3. Busy Baby Silicone Placemat: This silicone placemat suctions to any surface and keeps everything you hate picking up off the floor in place and within baby’s reach! This mat is not only a sanity saver, but helps support cognitive development, promotes motor skills, and encourages self feeding! If you’re tired of picking up utensils and toys off the floor, this is the perfect product!
4. Catchy the food and mess catcher for high chairs: Meals are some of the most stressful times of the day. Catchy helps you to say goodbye to the mess and stress of mealtimes. Catchy is a tray that attaches to 20 different high chairs to save your floors and your food. It attaches below your child’s feet so that it catches food dropped from all sides! No more crawling around on the floor and sweeping and mopping numerous times a day. Catchy is durable, easy to clean and use!
Motherhood is amazing, but cleaning up messes constantly and endless crying are some of the least desirable parts. These products are designed to make mom life easier so you can spend less time being stressed out and more time enjoying some peaceful playtime with your babies!
