Friday Favorites #8: New Finds & Favorites!

It’s been a while since I last posted but baby girl needs her mama.

9 weeks postpartum! Here are a few of my new favorite things as of late:

Cookies for a snack? Yes please!

I don’t know what it is but I am in love with these granola cookies. Trying out blueberry instead of the cranberry.Mommy and me yoga: It was a little baby massaging for her and some post-natal yoga for mommy. Flatout Foldit’s: I like the original ones but I wanted to get my hands on the ancient grains one. So good and hearty at 10g of protein and 7g of fiber.Baby hoodies with ears (by Carter’s). 😀Whole Grain PB Crackers: Pat loves these to have as a snack and I was so happy to find whole grain ones with a little less calories and more fiber! Now I can keep some handy for a snack too. I use to be addicted to Sun Chips years go and now they are back!Protein Kind Bars: This was perfect after teaching a couple classes back to back to replenish protein, some carbs and good fats!Some Shakeology to refuel; this time I’ve been enjoying the vanilla flavor. I’m linking up for Friday Favorites with Heather. Thanks for hosting! 😀 Question: What are some of YOUR favorite things?

Friday Favorites #5: Mommy and Baby Favs.

Happy Friday 😀

It’s the last Friday of September, which means summer is coming to an end. I don’t mind honestly, I am more of a boots and scarf gal. Today I’ll be sharing with you some favorites of the past three weeks for mommy and baby.

Even if you aren’t a mom, you’ll still enjoy a few of these:

Pepperidge Farm Soft-Baked Granola [Cookies]. I tried one from Target’s $1 section; post-delivery, I was eating oatmeal cookies (oats help with breastmilk production).

Yes, I could make my own and healthier... but between my online work and baby Samantha, these were perfect to have as a quick breakfast with a banana or a night time treat with milk.  I love that they have a little bit of fiber, protein and of course, carbs!

Plenti Greek Yogurt (Yoplait)Another quick and delicious way to get some increased lactation. Not only may oats increase, but flax can help too. Plus you get calcium to keep building strong bones, but my all time favorite Greek Yogurt is Fage.

Starbucks Iced Coffee + Milk [Light]. I can’t go on my usual Starbucks run nor do I always have the time to get my coffee brew on. That’s where these puppies come in. Each one comes out to about $1.40, which is about $1.00 less for a tall iced coffee.

I get to save money for baby wipes and if I am running late for work, I can grab one and still get my Starbucks fix. I can’t work without Starbucks in hand.

Babyganics Hand Sanitizer & Stain RemoverBabies (and moms) can get messy! I love the hand sanitizer and wipes. The Babyganics stain remover is amazing for getting out those tough stains. Definitely going to stock up on that.

Gentle Naturals Baby Eczema Relief Cream Samantha was getting very dry and cracked wrists, so we needed a cream for her dry skin. This cream healed her in less then two days.

Seventh Generation Dish Soap & Disinfectant Wipes All products are plant-based; the wipes have been great to clean her changing table and other things she may dirty. Instead of getting a “baby friendly dish soap,” we opted to go with one for the whole family.

The dish soap was only 50 cents more then the one we usually buy and it’s safe for washing Samantha’s bottles/ breast pump gadgets.
