Hudson: Month 1 Favorites

We celebrated our sweet baby boy's 1 month birthday on Saturday!

He's getting bigger everyday... now 10 lbs 14.5 oz and 21.5 inches long!

I thought that it might be helpful to some new mommies out there to list a few of my favorite items and things that have been helpful over the last month with little Hudson! 

Aden + Anais Swaddling Blankets: we love our star printed blankets (set of 4 in blue, grey, beige and green) and the ivory bamboo version too. They have been perfect for swaddling and to cover the car seat or stroller.

Gap Snap Shirts: these are great for bedtime when swaddling and during the day with little leggings for quick diaper changes. We have been using both the short and long sleeve versions of the shirt depending on the temperature.

Zoli Buzz B Nail File: this is perfect for filing the little one's nails. It comes with 4 files depending on baby's age {0-12 months} which prevents from getting too close to the skin.

The Honest Company Healing Balm + Wipes: we weren't crazy about the shampoo and lotion but we love these two products. The healing balm is magic on little cuts, dry skin or rashes and the I like that the wipes are plant based and natural.

Little Hip Squeaks: we are obsessed with this Etsy shop! The personalized blankets, leggings and hats are precious and unique plus Amy uses organic cotton and designs the prints herself. Don't forget to enter our giveaway with LHS here!

Boon Naked Collapsible Bath Tub: this has been perfect for bath time. We have limited storage space so I love that it folds up and can hang behind the door when we are done using it. It also collapses and expands as baby grows from 0-18 months.

Diana Henderson Photography: Diana took Hudson's newborn photos a few weeks ago and we loved how they turned out, I'll share some favorites soon! If you live in the Los Angeles area I highly recommend her {she also does family photos}. 

Shop some of our must haves below and please feel free to share your favorites, I'd love to know what was useful to your family during the first few months! XOXO

My how the time flys. I can't believe he's a month already. Seems like you just had him the other day.
