As you well know, this is the fifth pregnancy I’ve been this far along in [28 weeks], but (prayerfully) will be my fourth living child… Having experienced a stillbirth last year, this pregnancy has been my hardest one yet – and I’m not talking about physically…
While I’m absolutely loving the kicks and squirms and everything this little rainbow baby brings, the hardest part has been mental, struggling to let myself go all in, and truly believe everything will be OK. There is honestly no way to know that for certain though, so I just have to keep trusting in God’s plan and that everything happens for a reason – because I have no doubt it does – it just may be hard to see that sometimes…
With all that said, I am honored to be a part of this New Mom & Baby Babbleboxx, allowing me to get out of my comfort zone and prepare for this little rainbow baby, all while helping other new moms and moms-to-be as well!
So, let’s dive in!

Baby Magic Gentle Baby Lotion and Gentle Hair and Body
If your babies are anything like mine, they’re sensitive. And I don’t just mean their attitudes! That’s why products like this Gentle Hair and Body Wash from Baby Magic are such a great find! Dermatologist tested and crafted for baby’s delicate skin, this formula is full of wholesome ingredients, including nourishing Calendula and Coconut Oil, and is always made without parabens, phthalates, dyes and sulfates. It also smells fantastic!
Baby Magic’s Gentle Baby Lotion is also a fantastic find and is filled with Vitamins A, B, and E along with Aloe to help moisturize dry skin while helping calm and soothe too. Best used after a warm bath, and Baby Magic’s Gentle Hair and Body Wash, gently massage onto baby’s skin until absorbed for that soft smooth baby feel every parent loves and adores.
Rock from the Sky, by Jon Klassen from Candlewick Press
What parent doesn’t love a good book that they can read to their baby – especially when that book is enjoyable for them too?! Take The Rock from the Sky by author Jon Klassen and published by Candlewick Press. This hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate,
shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it, merges broad visual suspense with wry wit, and also includes great illustrations – so you can understand why it has become such a hit for the entire family!

Free & Clear from OxiClean
Those who have kids know how messy things can get – especially when it comes to stains! However, I believe fighting these stains is just as important as it is to be gentle on them – especially when it comes to our baby’s clothes. That’s why OxiClean Free & Clear has been made without any irritating dyes, perfumes, chlorine or optical brighteners and yet still breaks down the toughest stains!
Using active oxygen power to reach deep into fabric fibers to quickly and safely break up and remove stains, OxiClean Free & Clear works in all wash temperatures and machines, and can be used for every load since it is color-safe too! Oh, and it’s fragrance-free so it really is the perfect baby stain remover!
PinkCheeks Gift Box from Hoppy & Poppie
Emotional intelligence for kids is often something overlooked in very young children but, in fact, the sooner it is learned the happier children are set to be growing up. And that’s why this Hoppy and Poppie Gift Box has become a new family favorite as it fosters whole family communication! The stories and products focus on well-being and teaching children (and their parents) emotional intelligence all while making learning fun.
Designed for babies through preschool-age, the Hoppy & Poppie products help teach children to emotionally adapt and thrive, as well as how to be self-aware and comfortable talking about their emotions. In fact, there are tons of great items included in this box, including:
- Two high-quality board books with slide and touch n’ feel features
- Two 6” soft plush with zippered pockets and hooks
- Patoo GOTS certified 100% organic cotton character blankie
- Eleven ½” and two 1” youth-sized wristbands (to help explain feelings)
