Who is ready for another unboxing? Avalynn is ready to help! She LOVES to help me unbox and she’s much cuter on camera than I am!
Watch Avalynn Unbox the Pink and Blue Edition Babbleboxx with me here:
What is Babbleboxx?
Unlike most of my box features, this one is not an actual subscription box available for purchase–although it would be soooo fun! Babbleboxx is a fun service that sends out a themed box to bloggers and social media enthusiasts filled with a fun selection of products to help spread the word and share cool things across social media. This allows mom bloggers like me (and other types of bloggers) to discover and test out some awesome things and share them with great people like you! I love trying new things and was SO excited to partner with Babbleboxx for the first time! (This has been on my wish list for quite awhile!)
What’s Inside the #Pinkandbluebbxx?
The #pinkandbluebbxx is all about motherhood and features products for new moms and babies! I will share everything below in no particular order along with some information if you’d like to check them out further!
OshKosh Baby B’gosh Clothing is one of our favorite brands for quality, stylish kid’s clothing. They picked out an ADORABLE outfit for Avalynn that will fit her now. I seriously can’t even get over the cuteness of her very first pair of jeggings and what perfect timing because she FINALLY started walking!! Be sure to stalk my Instagram for some cute photos of Avalynn in her first pair of jeggings! You can also check out @oshkoshkids on Instagram for even more cuteness! We may have three babies, but I will never get over the cuteness of tiny clothes! And how cute is this little shirt?!

Playtex Nursing Bra and Maternity Underwear:
The next items are from Playtex and they are a nursing bra and maternity underwear! Let me let you guys in on a little secret: maternity underwear are SOOOO comfy! Both of these items are really well made and great quality, soft materials. The maternity underwear have a large top section that can go over your belly, or fold under to your desired comfort.
I love the texture and coloring of the grey nursing bra. Some nursing bras are a little boring (hey, we’re being honest, right?) but this one is not! It’s a fun, sporty design and the racerback offers great support for breastfeeding….you’re probably going to need it! This nursing bra is also WireFree and has Cool Comfort™ fabric that helps keep you cool and comfortable! (I don’t know about you, but those first few weeks after having a baby were filled with hot flashes for me as my hormones regulated back to normal.)
Check them out on Instagram here to see more comfy products!
Baby Banana Infant Toothbrush & Soothie Soothers Fruit Teethers:
When should you start brushing a baby’s teeth? This is something I literally asked myself with all three of our babies. They pretty much all got their teeth pretty late at 7 months or after. Let’s definitely NOT talk about teething. I totally forget how hard it is with each new baby and found myself unpleasantly surprised every time! (Funny how ‘mom brain’ works, right?!) But…. this Baby Banana infant tooth brush was on my list for Avalynn. It’s cute, fun, and made from soft silicone which is great for training babies on oral care as well as learning hand-mouth coordination! Did you know it’s also dishwasher safe and freezer friendly?! The teethers are also so cute and fun and also made from silicone. I love the bright colors and textures of the fruit and how they are designed for easy holding. Baby Banana is a family owned and operated company that starts in 2011, and while we were living in Utah, I learned that’s where they were located! I’m so excited to try these with Avalynn! You can check them out on Instagram at @BabyBananaBrush!

Apple Park Organic Hooded Infant Towel and Patterned Owl Rattle:
I seriously LOVE owls and I’ve used a lot of owl themes for Avalynn so this was a perfect fit! I also love fun baby towels! This company’s goal is to create products that are environmentally friendly and higher end and was founded by a mom of two. High five to another mom-owned business! All of the cute items at Apple Park are great gifts for a new baby and I love that their products are safe for baby and great for the environment! Head over to their Instagram at @Appleparkkids to check out more cuteness!

Bamboobies Reusable Nursing Pads, Nursing Shawl, & Boobease 100% Organic Nipple Balm:
If you are breastfeeding, you’re definitely going to want to get some supplies to make the process easier and more comfortable. I don’t know about you, but I thought it was a little difficult in the beginning….and after talking to other moms, many of us all struggle in different ways. First off, when you milk comes in you just may wake up totally soaked from leaking. I’m not saying that happened to me, but I’m saying it’s highly likely….from personal experience! You may also be super sore, not only during feedings, but also when you take a shower as your body adapts to your new role of feeding your tiny human. This is normal. The right nipple balm can provide a ton of relief! This also makes a great gift for a mom-to-be because it’s one of those things you don’t really know you need until you need it. Finally, the open nursing shawl. I really love this! It’s super soft and great quality. I love how versatile it is for feeding in public and how it can also be used with your baby carrier. Breastfeeding in public is a hot topic and not one I plan to discuss in this post. For me personally, I had a lot of trouble getting my babies to focus and not get distracted, so I usually opted for going to sit in the car during feedings. Having a nursing cover like this would have made a huge difference on my comfort level knowing that I had more privacy should my baby decide to move all over the place and take a break or two during a feed.

Vichy LiftActiv Vitamin C Serum: Brightening Skin Corrector:
Another product for mama! It’s like they just knew about my tired eyes? Hmmm…. I have not tried this product before but I have seen lots of my favorite beauty gurus mention it and it was on my list of things to try! Vichy is the #1 skin care brand in European pharmacies and was created by Dr. Haller in 1931. They have an entire line of skin care products you may want to check out. Their Instagram is @vichyusa and all of their products include Mineralizing Thermal Water from the French Volcanoes….which sounds kind of epic! They also claim it will help strengthen skin against fatigue, and this tired mama is excited to give that a try! It’s clinically proven to brighten skin in only 10 days and retails for under $30!

Tips from a Mom of 3:
If you are expecting, don’t forget to put a few items on the baby registry just for YOU as well as baby…because you deserve to feel comfortable and treat yourself! Another tip: get the maternity clothes the first time around! I ended up getting the majority of maternity clothing during my third pregnancy. It would have made so much more sense to wear them through all of them but I didn’t realize how truly amazing and comfortable they really are. Yes, even the underwear….especially the underwear!
Have you tried any of these products yet?
Which one was YOUR Favorite?
