Finally sharing my birth story almost 2 months after my sweet Poppy was born! It was the craziest 39.5 hours of my life but I’d do it over again in a heartbeat. Sharing all the details, including my code pink scare, in the video below. Enjoy! xo Lauren
One of my most asked for blog posts is finally here! My hospital bag checklist (what you actually need) has been much requested since I gave birth to Poppy last month. I have a Youtube video with what I packed, which you can watch here, and I can now honestly say I overpacked!
As a first time mom, heading into postpartum was anxiety inducing. I had no idea what to expect, how much pain I’d be in after labor and the products I needed. Fast forward 4 weeks postpartum and I’m no longer in pain and ready to share my go-to products I used and loved. Scroll down to see my 17 postpartum essentials plus why I loved them:

Guys, these 9 items have been on heavy rotation since Poppy’s been born. I use pretty much all these items daily and swear by them! Most of them can be found on Amazon too because I am a huge Prime person and with a baby who has time to wait for shipping or go to the store? I’ve linked each item below and shared why I love them! Poppy Loves: 9 Must Have Newborn Essentials 1. Happiest Baby Snoo – I’m going to do a entire review on the Snoo so I’m going to keep why I love it short and sweet. It works. It’s pricey but it honestly works. Since purchasing the Snoo, Poppy sleeps like a little champ giving mama and dad a decent nights sleep! If you’re in the US you can rent the Snoo (lucky you!). Here in Canada you need to buy it, but it has a good re-sale value and may be worth the investment if you’re planning on having multiple kids. 2. Uppa Baby Vista V2 (in the colour Bryce) – The Vista has been my dream stroller for years. I love the sleep safe bassinet and that it can turn into a double stroller if I decide to have another kid. It’s a pricier stroller but well worth the investment in my opinion. Plus, its available in a bunch of colours! 3. Snuggle Me Organic Lounger – Tried, tested and approved by Poppy! The Snuggle Me Organic Lounger hugs your little babe…
