Amazon Lately Vol. 1

We’ve had an Amazon Prime membership for a few years now and while I thought it was great before having a baby, I love it even more now that I’m a parent. First of all, I feel like there were so many things we needed the first few weeks after Fletcher joined our family and it was so convenient to pop it into my cart and receive it less than 48 hours later.

I’ve seen a few friends write blog posts covering their recent purchases and always enjoy finding new items that I didn’t even know I needed. feel like we usually go in spurts with ordering things so I thought I’d share what we’ve been ordering recently!

For Fletcher:

Some of the items that we’ve recently ordered for Fletcher include this awesome chair — our chiropractor mentioned that the Bumbo seat isn’t great for a baby’s hips, so we ordered this soft seat that allows him to still move his hips and legs while sitting up.

Fletcher LOVED his sleep sack that he got from the hospital as a parting gift but he has recently outgrown it and it’s fleece so it’s a little too warm for summer. We ordered this new one for him to wear this summer / fall.

We love these glass bottles for him as well — you can also purchase sippy top lids for them once your baby is in their toddler years.

For Me:

I recently ordered this new phone case because I accidentally dropped my iPhone in a public toilet and felt like I needed a new case after that. I tossed my iPhone in a bag of rice for 24 hours and it’s good as new — it was also kind of nice having an unexpected break from being tied to my phone, too!

Fletcher’s pediatrician has me on a high dose of Vitamin D so that it gets transferred to him, so I’ve been taking one of these each evening.

Andy ordered this pitcher for me as part of my Mother’s Day gift. I received a professional-grade blender while working at Life Time, but the threads on the bottom of the pitcher wore out so I was in need of a new one. This blender makes whipping up my shakes each morning so much quicker! I used to use a Ninja single-serve blender but felt like it always took forever and made a mess since it would overflow. I’d end up making my shake in three parts — blending the liquids, then adding the banana and blending, and finally adding ice cubes and blending once more. It was such a hassle while trying to get out the door in the morning.

I’ve also ordered what feels like a million breastfeeding products including this new pump after my Medela one kicked the can, a bunch of extra pump parts for keeping at home and work, this breastmilk + bottle cooler for transporting milk each day, etc.

My favorite purchase relating to breastfeeding is this pumping bra! I originally had this one, but once I dropped the baby weight, it didn’t fit anymore. This new one is adjustable, comes with removable straps, and is a pretty blush color. This is the only way I can get things done while pumping at home or at work!

Household Items:

These fancy little dusters work so much better than a cloth when it comes to dusting our furniture, railings, and baseboards! They trap the dust so well and make it easy to get in tight areas like between the posts of the railings.

We ordered a new dining room table and since it has a unique concrete top on it and we are at the early stages of expanding our family, we decided to get this nifty protector for the top of it.

Our Crock Pot kicked the can not too long ago — I was sitting on the couch holding Fletcher when all of the sudden water started pouring down the center island in the kitchen. I quickly ran over to see what was going on and realized our Crock Pot had cracked and all of the liquid that the chicken was being cooked in was rushing all over the counter and onto the floor. Luckily the chicken had recently finished cooking otherwise that would have involved a lot of sanitizing! We ordered this new one and it’s a little bigger than our old one, which has been nice!

I also ordered this diffuser for my mom’s birthday / Mother’s Day gift a few weeks ago and then picked up a few essential oils (lavender, lemon, and orange) from our local health co-op to go with it.
