Baby Gear

The very first baby-related purchases I made (outside of pregnancy literature) were as a result of a promotional e-mail that both Diana and Steph sent me from a website they were subscribed to - Planning Family.  The promotion was for Moms who were planning to breastfeed, and the product was for an Udder Cover (very similar to the Hooter Hider...not kidding). 

An Udder Cover is just something that you can wear when you need to nurse in public.  According to their webiste, they allow nursing in style and comfort - anytime, anyplace.  Catchy, right?  Through the promotion, I was able to get the Udder Cover for free (a $32 value) - all I had to do was pay for shipping and handling (which I think was like $5).  A steal, yes?  I didn't want the code to expire, so I placed my order before we knew that Baby Geronimina is a girl.  I tried to just pick a neutral one - it came out looking a little more boy-ish than I'd hoped and dreamed, but it is still cute.  I was actually really excited when it came in, and therefore I decided to model it just for you:


Please disregard my lack of makeup and cuteness today.  I'm tired.  I tried to get Layla to help me model this, but she does not love laying on her back and I might have almost dropped her but we won't mention that so the photo didn't quite work out.  It was funny while it lasted, though - I figure leaving you with the mental image will suffice.

After I'd placed my order for an Udder Cover and it was confirmed, a new offer popped up through that website.  Using a code that was given, I could also get a sling from Seven Slings for the same deal - just pay shipping.  I was a little hesitant about slings because I always worry about what if I don't tie it right or it comes off, etc. and I drop my child (I know, total worry wart), but these don't tie or velcro.  And anyway, who can beat a $48 value for only $5 shipping?  Again, I tried to go with something more neutral since we didn't yet know what we were having.  For your viewing pleasure:



I am still not sure how I got Dan to agree to model with Layla, but if you even try to tell me that's not the funniest thing you've ever seen, I will call you a liar.  I honestly think I might have peed in my pants a little bit from laughing so hard when all of this was taking place. 

Anyway, the point of this seemingly pointless post is that both of these arrived on my doorstep this week.  I actually ordered them so long ago (almost 8 weeks now?) that I had forgotten about them, so I was excited when they came today.  I should note that both are machine washable and therefore easy to clean.  Can't wait for this little girl to get here so I can test them out - I'll report back on how I like them via a product review after I've used them.

Finally, I will finish off this post with a hilarious story.  My friend Lindsey called me today.  I was in the middle of something at work and missed her, so she left me what may be the most hilarious voicemail ever.  In order for this to be funny, you should know that Linds has two girls: Addison (toddler) and Amelia (baby).  She talked for a short while about what she called about, and then out of nowhere at the end of the voicemail she said, "Oh, and by the way, I've told Addison that there is a baby in your belly and Jesus put it there, so just go with it."  Honestly, I laughed SO hard at my desk.  It was the hardest I'd laughed all week until Dan and Layla modeled the Seven Slings.

Hope this post made you laugh as much as I did!  Almost the weekend, wahoo!
