Scabib, The Scarf + Bib Review and Giveaway

scabib

That’s right, two giveaways in a row! I’m still playing catch up and I have been excited for far too long to share the Scabib with you. If you’ve been on Zulily or Instagram (#instababy) lately, you are likely to be familiar with this baby trend. It’s cute, it’s stylish and it’s functional! It’s a scarf and a bib, and it’s very absorbent.

Scabib was created by Trish, a mom to a precious little boy. When he began teething, she wanted to sew him something to soak up all the drool, but still be cute. After a few tries, the Scabib was born, and it’s become very quickly popular. Sounds like a Shark Tank story, right? Trish sent me one to review and one to giveaway (yay!), but I also bought a couple more because I LOVE them!

Every Scabib has a terry cloth back (so it’s more absorbent), a velcro attachment, and an adorable pattern. They fit comfortably around baby’s neck and fit for a long time. Luna wears them often and rarely pulls them off. They are way cuter than most bibs and at the end of the day, I just throw them in the washer and they come out good as new! We also get compliments on them all the time.

My Favorite Scarf (Giveaway)

marienohr

In my quest to find cute clothes that are nursing friendly I have gone back to visit my old pal Marie. Remember Marie from a few months back? The adorable maternity poncho? Weeellllll, she is now making even more products! I just had the pleasure of trying one of her infinity nursing scarves. And, let me just say she did not disappoint. That’s why Mommy inventors are best… they know exactly what fellow Mom’s need.

I tried the scarf right away to see how it works with the baby. I’ve found that it’s necessary to try any sort of baby product at home first. Carriers, wraps and nursing covers can all be a little complicated so you want to get the hang of it before you take it out in public and make a fool of yourself. Trust me. I used a mirror to make sure it covered in the right areas and still looked cute, of course.

Then, I decided to keep the scarf in my diaper bag. I figured it might be nice to have when I’m out and about with Luna and would give me a chance to check out how well it works in real-life situations. Let me just say, THANK GOD for this scarf. I used it to cover-up in restaurants, at grocery stores, at a house party and the park. Prior to the scarf I typically used a swaddling blanket. The scarf not only looks better, but is much easier to keep up and to manipulate.

One of the things I like best about the scarf is that it’s lightweight. The description on Etsy actually size its “heavy weight”, and maybe it is compared to her other scarves, but I think it’s very light and breathable. The biggest complaint I hear about nursing covers is that they are hot for both Mom and baby. This scarf is not.

What I really love is that I can take this scarf with me anywhere, and use it as a cover and not feel like I am repeating outfits. It’s just an accessory, so I can wear it as a scarf and use it as a cover, or just use it as a cover. Now, that I’ve kept it in my diaper bag for a few weeks I will never go anywhere without it. It is my new favorite accessory.

PinkBlush Review and Giveaway!

me

I have tried a few different brands of Maternity clothes over the last few months (Target, Old Navy, Macy’s, Etsy, etc), but there is one company I have adored over the rest.. PinkBlush Maternity. If you are pregnant, or have been recently pregnant, than I’m certain you have heard of them. They are a very trendy, cute, affordable and comfortable maternity clothing company. They are often featured on Zulily and you can’t google “trendy maternity clothes” without immediately coming across this company. They know their stuff.

pinkblush

Lucky for me, I get to review one of PinkBlush’s maternity/nursing dresses! They offer a whole line of maternity/nursing clothes, which is really really nice. No one wants to spend a lot of money on clothes they can only wear for a few months, but, if you can wear it after the baby has arrived than it’s totally acceptable! Today, I’m showing off the Mocha Bohemia Maternity/Nursing Maxi Dress.

I wore my new dress for our date night out to see I Love Lucy: Live on StageIt fits just right, is very comfortable and easy to dress-up and add layers too. I paired it with heeled booths, a scarf and sweater to keep warm, but in the summer I’ll still be able to wear it with bare shoulders and some strappy wedges (and a much smaller belly!).
