As you guys know the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has amazing prices on super cute clothes! But what you might not realize is that they actually have crazy good sales on stuff for parents and kiddos too. So today on the blog I want to share some of my favorite products for all the moms, dads and kiddos out there!
Since it’s summer time and super hot pretty much all over the country, the first product I want to share that I just bought from the sale is this anti-UV pop-up tent. It’s normally $40 and on sale for only $25 right now. I don’t know about you, but as a parent I feel like this might be the best $25 I spent all summer. Since Molly is at an age where she loves to be outside all the time, it’s super important for us to have this because we can put Riley in it and not have to worry about him being exposed to the sun. We also hope to do some beach trips this summer and this will be absolutely essential not only for Riley but also for Molly when she’s spent too much time in the sun. We actually haven’t even brought Molly to a proper day at the beach yet (except when we were in Hawaii – I more mean here at home since we are 30 mins from the beach). She’s been, but only when we were out to eat near the water and we just stopped by and played in the sand for a few minutes. She hasn’t had a full beach day yet. And I think it’s because we’ve been worried about her being in the sun for too long, but this anti-uv tent is the perfect solution! $25 is what I spend on lunch, so I’ll happily spend it on something like this for my kiddos! Once I get it in the mail I’ll let you guys know what I think of it. But if you could use one of these I suggest you snag it now before it sells out. Things in the Nordstrom sale sell out so quickly! And if you don’t love it, Nordstrom has free returns so there’s really no downside.
As any parent knows you can never have enough swaddle blankets. We honestly don’t even use them to swaddle. We use them for covering up Riley when we go out, putting over his car seat to keep the sun off him and I use them as nursing covers. I also use them to put down on surfaces where I need to leave Riley. They’re really multi-functional and you can never have enough! We have this exact brand and they are the absolute best! Oh and speaking on putting your little one down, we own this play mat (I’ll post an insta story today). It’s great and part of the sale!
I also get 1 million questions about Molly’s sleep suit every time I post her wearing her sleep-suit on Instagram story. We plan on keeping Molly in the sleep suit/sleep blanket until she’s at least three years old per the advice of our sleep coach. She suggested we put Molly in one because she told us that kids, just like adults, like to sleep with a blanket over them. And as many of you know, or really every parent knows, you’re not supposed to put a blanket in the crib with your child when they’re very young. So that’s why we originally started using the sleep suit. And as soon as we transitioned Molly from no blanket to wearing the sleep suit, she immediately started sleeping so much better! The reason she’s still in the sleep suit even though she could technically have a blanket at this point, is because it keeps her from climbing out of her crib. In fact, Molly has never even tried to climb out of her crib and I think it’s because she’s definitely not able to while wearing this. Which means we get to keep her in the crib as long as possible which is such a blessing! I have a friend whose two-year-old is already out of their crib and they let themselves out of the room at night when they should be sleeping. Which is definitely not a bridge I want to cross with Molly quite yet. And the advice I’ve gotten from so many parents is to keep your kiddo in their crib until they’re at least three years old. At $25 this sleep suit is such a great price!
And in general you can see all the kids stuff that is on sale during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale HERE. There is so much good stuff like strollers, car seats, and more!
And while you are here I want to share this nursing find with any nursing mama’s out there. I posted about them before but one of my followers told me that she got this nursing cover for under $15. CRAZY right?! I didn’t know it was on sale! I had to re-share. I own a few pieces of clothing that are super similar to this duster/cover-up. I love them because they’re great to throw on with an outfit when you want to cover your backside. I wear them all the time when I wear more form-fitting dresses. Especially when I was pregnant because I’d like to show off my bump in the front but didn’t necessarily want to show off my backside. So this is a great piece to get if you are expecting so you can wear it with your form-fitting dresses and then wear for nursing afterwards! It has little buttons at the top so it acts as a nursing cover. It’s pretty cool if you ask me! And it’s on sale right now for under $20!
I also loooove this maxi dress. It’s so pretty that I’ve actually had friends borrow it recently who weren’t even nursing just because they wanted to wear it to a Sunday brunch. That’s the great thing about finding super cute nursing clothes that don’t look like nursing clothes. You can wear them well after you’re done breastfeeding! The material of this maxi dress is very stretchy and super comfortable! And I love that it provides coverage for the top of the breast while breastfeeding so it can be done super discreetly without the need for a nursing cover in public.
Her are more of my favorite nursing items right now. All the nursing items I’m talking about in this post are from Motherhood Maternity and are buy one get one 50% off! (The red tank below is maternity – not nursing, but I think it could work to nurse – but I love it so I had to share for any expecting mamas)
OK, that’s all I’ve got for today! I just found all these awesome items from the Nordstrom sale and wanted to share them with you guys. And I wanted to re-share the above nursing clothes since they’re super practical, cute, and helpful in my every day life! Hope you guys have a great Sunday
