I know how hard it can be as a mom to figure out what to get for a newborn, what to register for, and what products are going to last you a long time. The Baby Cubby is a place where you will find just about anything you need for the littles in your life!
What makes The Baby Cubby different from other companies is that they aren't just "another baby store." The Baby Cubby is more a community really trying to help become a good resource for parents through the amazing journey of parenthood. Here's why I love them...
Why I love The Baby Cubby:
The Baby Cubby is for every parent out there who has ever felt overwhelmed or discouraged about becoming a parent. The Baby Cubby team is made up of parents who have been there, know what it’s like and are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, and reminding parents how amazing they are and how important their role is. That's important to me.
The way they do that is by finding the best and safest baby gear and providing it to parents in a fun shopping experience where they do things like test strollers on their stroller track, price match everyday (even Amazon!), offer free shipping with orders over $49 nationwide, and actively engage with parents via social media and their cubby community blog to discuss some of those hard topics of parenting.
I picked out some my favorite things The Baby Cubby carries:
Both have great reviews. I actually just got my little Ellie the Maxi Cosi Pria 70, and I'm excited about it! She is getting too big for her Maxi Cosi Mico AP Infant Car Seat (which I've really like as well). They have all of theses, and much more. You really can't go wrong with any of the car seats they carry.
***Also, find their Car Seat Buying Guide here. What I love about them is that they carry only the best and safest gear so that you can shop without feeling nervous about the quality of their carseats, strollers, etc.
The stroller I have is the Baby Jogger City Select. I found it when it went on sale, because it was definitely a splurge for us. However, I have to say, I knew I wanted a stroller that would last me through all my kids and I was willing to pay a little bit more for this versus a car seat or other gear I didn't care as much about. It was our biggest splurge and I absolutely love it. I researched a lot of strollers before having Ellie, and this was something I'm glad I got. This video below will show you a little bit more about it, and why it's the most versatile stroller on the market.
We registered for the Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier, and I have loved it for when I need a good supportive carrier to throw on when I go shopping, do things around the house, go walking, or travel to an event. It's more supportive than a wrap carrier, and I feel like it supports my back better too. I love the different positions we can carry Ellie in, and when she was just an infant, the infant insert helped to keep her safe and secure. My husband also loves this and uses it often (especially when he takes her fishing.)
I love that The Baby Cubby carries some fabric wraps as well. They are so soft and comfy. I liked this option for $48. That's a good price for those. I thought the Slate Stripe was cute. It's nice to have both hands free when you have a newborn in the house. I've also used mine for many different occasions, and I've worn Ellie all different ways in it: on my front (forward and backward facing), and on my back (pictured below).
Let me just say... why is it that having the name "diaper bag" automatically prices something around $150? It's a lot for a bag (at least for me.) But I have to say that buying a good diaper bag is worth it, especially when you carry it every day, and especially if you want to have it for a long time. On The Baby Cubby site, I thought a few were cute: this one (which I'm saving up for... I like the gray one too!), this one, and this one. Honestly, there are so many other kinds of diaper bags out there, but I'd recommend looking for one you can wear as a backpack. It's a life saver!
They have so many fun things here to decorate a nursery. I seriously can't wait to add some of this stuff into my nursery for baby #2 some day. I love the pom pom storage bins, their framed prints, and the fauxidermy animal heads to put on the wall. So fun!
Whatever you do, get yourself a bunch of bamboo muslin swaddles. Whether it's Aden and Anais swaddles, Little Unicorn swaddles, or another type of soft blankie, they have it all here. I have many of these, and the ones I like most are the bamboo muslin because they're the softest kind.
There's nothing better than a clean and good-smelling baby straight out of the bath... It's my absolute favorite thing. We love our regular Johnson's baby soap and shampoo over here, but these products are also something that will keep your babe smelling divine. Also, how cute is this baby washcloth/towel!?
You know as a nurse, I'm sucking out babies' noses allllll winter long. But at home there's nothing worse than feeling like that little bulb syringe they give you at the hospital is not working. Here is something we have at our home that really gets out those boogers when your littles are not feeling well. It may look kind of gross, but I promise you it works wonders! I never thought I'd be one to recommend it, but once you get it, there's no going back!
This is something I won off of an Instagram giveaway once (Didn't ever think I'd see the day when I actually won a giveaway haha). But it literally comes with us everywhere. I didn't know if I'd use it as much, but man was I wrong. I have the midi-mat, but they also sell a larger one and two smaller sizes as well. It's the BEST with kids. Ellie spills all over it, and we just wipe it up and it cleans off nicely. It's been with us in the mountains, on picnics, at the park, and at home when we play. I'd highly recommend it!
Hope this list helps! I'll have to do another list soon of all of my baby favorites, but The Baby Cubby has many of them, and lots more to offer. Check them out!!
