Must-Haves for Mom on your Baby Registry
At Baby Boldly, we believe everything starts with momma. If we care for mommas, then mommas can take care of their baby. When it comes to building a baby registry, between the two of us, we’ve been around the baby block a time or four (not counting all of our family and friends we’ve showered). Something that remains true, is how quickly the baby gear industry evolves, year after year. Keeping appraised of all things awesome for both baby and their caregivers, we bring you the “Must Haves for Mom on your Baby Registry” as you commence on building yours or seek to share recommendations for someone you love.

Why we love Pharmacopia and pack it in every Belly & Bag
Toiletries are perhaps the most basic of essentials that anyone would know to pack in their birth bag. While it seems obvious that these toiletries would be packed in every bag, this particular brand checked all the boxes we knew mommas cared about most.
Why we love Burt's Bees and pack it in every Belly & Bag
With a safe-for-sensitive skin on-the-go facial towelette like Burt’s Bees packed in your birth bag, you can still care for yourself. Nothing can replace a good face wash with warm water, but this is the next best option!
Why we love Badger Balm and pack it in Belly & Bag
As mommas ourselves, we know how important it is to have a great balm to soothe sore lactating nipples. Breastfeeding can be challenging and at times cause discomfort, especially in the early days. Balm needs to apply easily, absorb into the skin effectively, provide relief and meet our non-toxic standards.
Why we love Bamboobies and pack it in every Belly & Bag - copy
When we were thinking about the ultimate non-toxic, prep-packed hospital birth bag, our checklist included nursing pads. While some bodies need them before birth and others don’t need them until after they've checked out of the hospital, we knew including them would ensure new mommas were better prepared for their changing bodies.
Why we love Schmidt's and pack it in every Belly & Bag
Did you know Schmidt’s was founded by a fellow momma-to-be named Jaime who was frustrated by the lack of natural options to care for her body? So she made her own and introduced natural and effective body care to the marketplace with her business partner Michael. That’s a #boldmomma!
Review: SneakPeek Early Gender Reveal Test
Thanks to facebook algorithms, I had stumbled on Sneak Peek’s Early Gender DNA Test. I could find out my baby’s sex as early as 8 weeks pregnant! And being completely administered at home, it was a great option amidst a pandemic.
The Baby Boldly Academy Awards: Our Nominees for Parent Sanity-Savers
Sanity can be slippery when you’re a parent, especially when you’re sifting through racks (or pages) of possible baby products, trying to anticipate your (and your baby’s) needs. When another parent (particularly one you know and trust) says “this thing is a lifesaver!” – take note.
