Diaper Bag Essentials!

Baby Essentials, Collaborations

Today I received this diaper bag from Joone Co and it has exceeded all of my expectations!

Having three under three means that I need a diaper bag that is spacious and organized and this checks those boxes!

This bag is the Carryall Tote and comes in five colors. I chose Saddle!

It has plenty of pockets – THIRTEEN! With two insulated inner pockets for bottles, and two larger outer pockets for sippy cups or water bottles – and is still sleek and streamlined for a really appealing look. It’s made from oiled vegan leather and nylon so that it’s both stylish and easy to clean.

And while we’re at it, here’s a look at what’s inside my bag:

Ring slings are a must and I always regret not bringing one if I forget to pack it!

Blaise is exclusively breastfed, so this is a necessity since we are out and about a lot!

This is the Micro+ because my kids outgrow the Micro too fast. This is an older color but it’s called Saddle. Gathre has a sale going on right now for Mother’s Day so it’s a good time to snag one of these if you don’t already have one!

  • Pacifiers

I have three under three. I always pack at least three pacifiers in case of emergency.

  • Snacks

There’s always a few GoGo Squeez pouches in my bag because that’s the only brand of applesauce Mathias will eat. I usually pack Liv a granola bar or two as well!

  • Diapers + Wipes

We’re a Pampers family. For whatever reason my kids are super sensitive and these are the only diapers that don’t give them rashes!

  • Swaddle

You never know if a place is going to be cold – the hospital usually is! So I pack an extra blanket for B.

  • Extra G-Tube Supplies

I’m a special needs mom; that means bringing extra supplies. I always keep an extra bag of Nourish (Mathias’ food), an extra extension and a syringe with me, and keep an emergency G-Tube placement kit in the car in case something happens and it gets pulled out.

That’s it!

*This diaper bag as well as some other products pictured were gifted to me. However, I was not asked to write a blog post and all opinions are my own!

Baby Essentials, Part 1: DockATot

It’s been about two months since I posted because I’ve been a little busy…

A late welcome to Blaise Tomasz Jablonski who was born on February 23, 2019 (who will, for the rest of his life, overshadow my own birthday). He is delicious and I promise I will get his birth story up here as soon as I can process it…

Now that I’ve had my third baby there are quite a few different baby products that I consider “must-haves” and that I’m asked about on a pretty frequent basis! Other moms ask me about baby clothes a lot and that’s something I’ll address in another post, but the one thing everyone asks me is how the baby is sleeping.

Well, here’s the thing. When you have two toddler older siblings, there is a lot of chaos and noise, which makes daytime sleep harder than it should be for a newborn. Since he’s the third baby I can’t just lounge in my room while he sleeps in his bassinet so I am super happy that we have a DockATot Deluxe+ for him to sleep in!

DockATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper and playtime lounger! It isn’t stationary – I can move it around from room to room which is great because my kids are always on the go!

We literally use this EVERY DAY. I’m not sure if there’s anything else we use quite as much …

The DockATot is tested for breathability (OEKO-TEX certified) and is made from all natural, 100% cotton! It’s an ideal micro-climate for babies which makes it that much easier for baby to sleep soundly!

Livia was a little jealous. Actually, she went and lounged in the DockATot at every possible chance she had. Luckily for her, DockATot makes two sizes!

She had no clue what was in this box.

The DockATot Grand is for ages 9-36 months! Livia is 18 months and as you can tell from her unboxing reaction, she loves it!

Needless to say that these are a huge hit and we’ve already taken our Deluxe+ on the road with us when we visited my parents in New York!

I’m also getting emotional looking at these photos from the past month. Blaise has already gotten so much bigger! I think I’ll have to come up with a DockATot / Blaise hashtag for my instagram pictures so I can look at them all in one place. #BlaiseATot #DockABlaise

These are a definite must-have in my book and am really thankful that DockATot gifted them to us! Follow them on instagram @dockatot and check out their website, DockATot.
