I’m so excited to receive my Wipouch Mini in the mail recently.
If you’re a mom like me, you probably love having hand wipes with you to quickly wipe down your baby or dirty shopping carts. With all the cute baby products that are out now, why is the packaging for hand wipes such eyesores?!
I researched the brand extensively and I was drawn to cute designs and the sleekness of the package. I also love that it’s made without any BPA, phthalate, and is lead and PVC free! This is great news for the mom or dad that is worried about exposing their baby to dangerous chemicals. So I made my order and waited anxiously for my Wipouch to come all the way from Australia.
The low down:
The mini holds up to 30 wipes and the detachable strap is so useful to snap onto your stroller! I’ve attached it on my baby carrier in case I needed it while going on a walk with my little guy.
I can’t verify yet if it comfortably holds up to 30 wipes I have put about 10-15 wipes in and it does look like it’ll fit a few more. I have to say, the slim design makes for an easier fit in any diaper bag.
I also like the material, since it’s not in the crinkly packaging so it’s a lot quieter for me to grab a wipe from the wipouch. Anyone with a sleeping baby will understand how important this is!
What other uses do you recommend using your Wipouch for?
One of the greatest challenges when you move to a new home is finding a way to make the space uniquely yours. Another challenge is finding a style and aesthetic that you and your husband loves! Prior to living with my husband, I loved the French shabby chic look or country chic look that had plenty of bright whites and lacy details. I thought it was dainty and pretty, my husband thought it was frilly and over the top.
I’ve developed a love and appreciation for the mid century modern look. The use of beautiful wood and clean lines just appealed to me and luckily, for my husband too! The MCM look was masculine but “clean” enough for me to add details that were feminine for me that I could switch out on a whim.
I cannot wait to really transform this (previously) unloved home and just let it shine. I can’t wait to write more and to show readers little projects we’ve done around the house!
Hi all! I can’t believe how busy it has been. From moving and having a baby, I couldn’t find the time! Anyways, I’ve been dying to write this post for awhile and I’m excited to share this product I’ve found.
I recently bought the newborn bundle from Smilo in preparation of the arrival of my little one. I bought the smallest set since I didn’t want to buy too many bottles just in case my little guy didn’t take to the bottles.
What really drew me to the company was the fact that the products were designed by engineers and those in the medical field. It made me really comfortable with purchasing their products for my little one. On top of that, I loved the aesthetics and all the fun colors! How could I resist? I could truly buy a bottle in a color I like. There are four different colors to choose from – purple, blue, orange, or pink.
The newborn bundle comes with 3 bottles, 3 pacifiers (0-3 months), 3 newborn pacifiers, additional bottle nipples, 2 bottle brushes, a blanket, and pacifier clip.
The bundle came nicely packaged and came in a large reusable bag! I love the bag and have been using it around the house so it has come in pretty handy.
As for the bottle, I’ve had no issues with it so far. Little Leo has been nursing really well with these and we have no complaints so far. I’ve actually put in another order for more bottles so we can have more in rotation!
My ultimate favorite item in this set thought , is the newborn pacifier. According to the Smilo website, the pacifier is “is the leading design on the market that helps prevent cross-bite […] and encourages development of suck, swallow and breathe mechanisms. The three support arches in the nipple ensure it expands vs collapses, providing the proper fit and promoting straight smiles in your developing baby”.The newborn pacifier is made with medical grade materials and my baby took to it right away. The first pacifier we received was from the hospital and was much to big for his little mouth. This pacifier fits his mouth perfectly. They currently have a special going on until June 18th for Fathers Day – be sure to use the code DADDYDAY10 to save 10% on orders more than $30!

As I’m in my 9th month of pregnancy, I’m really surprised at how quickly time went by.
I was really amazed at my body and what my body is capable of doing. It’s incredible that my body is able to help create and sustain life for 9 months. As I’m approaching my due date, I can’t stop thinking about all the things they don’t really tell you about being pregnant.
- Your OB/GYN isn’t really going to educate you about pregnancy or dealing with your newborn. That’s how it is in the U.S. at least. You’re expected to learn on your own. They do ask if I have questions but sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know.
- Having a doula is *a must*. I haven’t even had my kiddo yet and I firmly feel this way. I’ve talked to other women who’ve had doulas and have heard nothing but amazing things. My package with my doula also included classes which I found incredibly enlightening. I really feel as if my body is strong and powerful and capable of so much.
- People are going to comment on your body. A lot. It’s kind of weird but everyone becomes fascinated and fixated on my overall appearance. It makes me a little uncomfortable when I was being compared to other coworkers that were/are pregnant. I’m just trying to make a little person, y’all. No need to critique our growing bellies in the process.
- People are going to share your good news, especially if you don’t want them to. I was really frustrated with how there is zero respect for privacy. In the beginning, this was a big deal to me and I wanted to keep our news private until we got through the first trimester. My husband told one person who told his entire family in a span of minutes (maybe I’m exaggerating but that’s what it felt like). I felt really exposed and was initially really unhappy. I really wanted to savor the moment and wrap my head around this life changing, earth shattering news. Once I was ready to share, I was much happier with telling everyone but I really wish my husband and I were on the same page before he started telling everyone.
