An Awesome Idea for Baby’s First Year

By | Brand Spotlight, Little Nugget App, Parenting Apps | No Comments

Baby’s first year is SUCH an exciting time. But, boy does it fly by. As a new mom, we are busy feeding, changing, cleaning, sleeping (when we can!), feeding, going to doctor appointments, doing endless laundry, cuddling, and the list goes on and on. There is barely any time to shower, much less make a scrapbook of baby’s life. If you are anything like me, you know you want to do something special for baby’s first year. Yet, you just don’t have the time or energy for all that.

We’re here to share the best way to document baby’s first year.

An awesome way to document baby's first year! With the Little Nugget app and Polka Dot Print Shop Baby book!

An awesome way to document baby's first year! With the Little Nugget app and Polka Dot Print Shop Baby book!It all starts with the Little Nugget app. Our app is created and designed for busy moms.

Once you get your prints you can pull out your baby book. We highly recommend the Baby Book from Polka Dot Print Shop. This book comes in tons of different designs and colors and is one of the higher quality baby books we’ve found. We also love how simple + functional it is. The pages have just enough room to write, but it doesn’t require writing a whole novel every month. And we love the pages dedicated to photos! This is where we love to put our Little Nugget designs.

5 Products for Techie Moms

By | Baby Gear: Must Haves, Little Nugget App, Parenting Tech | No Comments

As a new mom, we have the ultimate intuition on what our baby needs. However, we also need all the help we can get. New moms barely have time to brush their teeth- so anything that helps us function a little bit better is a must-have for us! We wanted to bring you our five favorite tech products for new moms!

1+ Little Nugget App – Our app is designed to make it so much easier to capture baby’s adorable milestones and growth! From pregnancy bumps to baby mess-ups to big kid milestones, Little Nugget captures fleeting moments, big and small, so you can save them for years to come. Download the app here , take photos of your baby, and edit them with over 450+ stickers and artwork. You can even print your photos right from the app!

An awesome way to document baby's first year! With the Little Nugget app and Polka Dot Print Shop Baby book!2+ Hatch Baby Rest – This device is a night light, sound machine, and an OK-to-wake indicator all in one! You can program and control it all from your phone. It’s perfect when you need a little light during those middle of the night feedings. And the many different sound options will help your baby sleep soundly at night. We love that you can control it all from the app!

3+ Tile – While the Tile is not necessarily designed for new moms, we think it’s the perfect tech product for a sleep deprived mom. Mom brain is real, and we don’t have the time to constantly be searching for our favorite items. The tile clips on to anything you are constantly losing- your keys, camera, wallet, husband (just kidding). And you use the app to find these things instantly. It also will ring your phone when you lose it.

4+ Momsense Smart Breastfeeding Meter – This device actually tracks how much your baby nursed. You place the sensor right below baby’s earlobe and it records each time baby swallows. This technology can track and analyze each nursing session to show how much baby nursed. Isn’t that incredible!? This eases so much stress that goes into breastfeeding.

5+ Starling by VersaMe – This product is so unique, but can have amazing long-term effects so we had to share it with you! This is actually a clip on product that tracks and monitors how many words baby hears a day. It is connected to an app on your phone, understands all languages, and helps you engage more with your baby. The goal each day is for baby to hear 10,000 words a day. This device will help you monitor those words and help you reach the goal. How cool is that? And when baby is a toddler, it can track the words they are saying themselves!

We hope you like these 5 products for techie moms! Let us know in the comments what techie product makes your life as a new mom easier.

Baby Tracker

This app is awesome to use in the hospital & for the first few weeks at home. It allows you to keep track of feedings, diaper changes, sleeping, and more. I love it because it helps me remember the last time I fed baby and on what side! Another cool feature is you can add your baby’s weight and height and it tell you their percentiles. Kinda cool!

It includes activities for different categories like gross motor, fine motor, speech, social, etc. I love it!

Top 5 Baby Apps you Must Have!

Wonder Weeks

This app is based on the book, but is only $1.99. The idea is that all babies go through developmental leaps. After a leap, they learn new skills. However, leaps also make babies sorta fussy and irritable. This app lets you know when your baby is going to be in a “sunny” time or a “stormy” time. It has been extremely helpful. When baby is acting a little extra fussy- I look on the app and sure enough it is a stormy week. It makes me feel better that she is just going through a lot of changes and it is not something that I am doing.

Take Better Photos With Your iPhone

By | Baby Photography, Baby Photography Apps, DYI Baby Photography | No Comments

Taking great pictures takes time + practice. Some people practice for years to get it right! But, let’s face it. We don’t always have the time or money to invest in professional photography gear. But most of us DO have a iPhone! We wanted to share our top 10 tips for taking better photos with your iPhone!

1 + Wipe off camera lens: This is such an easy tip, but one that’s forgotten a lot. Your phone is constantly being tossed around, going in and out of diaper bags and purses. And if you’re like me, it ends up dropped on the floor A LOT. Before taking your next shot, wipe off the lens on the back. It’ll make a huge difference.

2+Natural light is KEY: This is probably the most important tip of photography. Look for the light. Natural light is the best kind. I actually prefer turning off lamps and overhead light to reduce the yellow tint in my photos. Another great tip- if you’re outside, look for a shady spot to take a photo instead of BRIGHT sun.

3+ Tap on screen to adjust brightness: When in your camera app, tap on different parts of the screen to adjust the brightness. I always touch the darkest part of the photo and then swipe up with my finger to make it brighter.

4+ Keep it LOCKED: Hold your finger on the screen (in the camera app) for a couple of seconds to LOCK the screen. This means that the settings freeze where they are.

5+ Be super still: Another one of those tips that’s super simple, but easily forgotten. Try not to move when your taking a photo. I know it’s hard when your chasing after a toddler. Keep your hands as still as possible to keep a photo sharp.

6+ Check your background: When taking photos of my daughter, I look for neutral, plain backgrounds. You want the focus to be on your subject, not the stuff in the background.

7+ Don’t use iPhone zoom: If you want to get a closer shot, physically walk closer to your subject. You’ll get a way sharper shot. The iPhone does zoo, it’s not high quality. Get closer, instead.

8+ Use photo apps!: Even professional photographers edit their photos. It’s actually known to be the most important step of photography. My favorite is VSCO. I add a filter, crop, brighten, bump up the clarity and we’re good to go!

9+ iPhone 7 portrait mode: Have you tried this yet?! This feature on the new iPhone is a great way to get a professional look using your phone!

10+ Little Nugget App: Our app, Little Nugget is the perfect way to capture your baby’s sweet moments and milestones. From pregnancy bumps to baby mess-ups to big kid milestones, Little Nugget captures fleeting moments, big and small, so you can save them for years to come. We also have a feature that allows you to print your designs right from the app! Perfect to put in a baby book or scrapbook!

I hope these tips are helpful for the next time you take photos with your phone!

Little Nugget Turns One!

By | Little Nugget App | No Comments

Don’t you just love celebrations!? Birthdays? Holidays? Festivities are fun! It’s just the best to gather with loved ones, looking back on those special moments, and looking forward to cherishing each moment in the future.

What was the last event you celebrated? Possibly a birthday?

Birthdays are great! Your little one turning one, two, ten years old… Getting another year older is amazing…. and bittersweet too, isn’t it? Remember the first time they slept through the night? The first time they said mama or dada? What was a big milestone for your little nugget?

Little Nugget App helps document your big and small milestones to cherish them forever!Speaking of Little Nugget and birthdays. . . . Little Nugget turns one today!! Can you believe we are celebrating one year?? We are so very grateful to share in your special moments with you and your family. We consider it such an honor!

To share our love even more, here’s a message from our wonderful founder of Little Nugget, Carrie Griffith:

“Little Nugget is turning one and what a year it has been! Little Nugget found its beginnings in the throws of new parenthood. Just two years ago after Leslie was born, I was a sleep deprived mama, overwhelmed at times, but loving her snuggly, squishy newborn goodness. Little Nugget was just an idea. It was a need that I, along with many of my mama-friends had, to have an easier way to capture little babe’s milestones. It was a dream that I never thought possible.

Little Nugget App helps document your big and small milestones to cherish them forever!Fast-forward to May 2, 2016 and Little Nugget was officially welcomed to the world. The past year has been a wild ride, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Little Nugget is a part of my family. It was there for the birth of my second daughter, Evelyn. It has been there every month for her milestone photos. Little Nugget was there to capture Leslie’s first day of preschool, her first trip to the dentist, and her first successful go with the “big girl” potty. Little Nugget will be there for so many of my families big moments in the years ahead.

I’m overwhelmingly grateful for you, the mamas and dads using Little Nugget to capture your family’s milestone moments. You’ve trusted me to keep one of the most treasured things in life safe, memories. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you for sharing your moments with us on Instagram. Thank you for your kind emails and encouragement. Above all, thank you for sharing how we can be better.

Little Nugget App helps document your big and small milestones to cherish them forever!Everyday I work to make Little Nugget the best it can be for you, for your babes, and for your family. We have so many exciting new milestones coming for the app in this next year. I cannot wait to share them with you all!

Happy First birthday to my third babe, Little Nugget. Cheers to a big year of milestones ahead.”

From us to you,

THANK YOU & LOVE YOU!!

Inspiring Moms: Coralee Dixon from Shortcake

By | Baby Photography, Brand Spotlight, Inspiring Moms, Mompreneurs, Parenting | No Comments

If it isn’t obvious yet, I’m really into capturing memories, especially of my daughter Leslie. Not a day goes by when I don’t take at least 10 photos of her. Rewind to her first year and I was taking at least 100 photos a day. When it came time to create her Baby’s First Year photo album I was so overwhelmed with thousands of photos to choose from. It was just too much for me to tackle. Admittedly, I walked away from the project and decided I’d tackle it another time.

About a month ago I came across an incredible mama-founded photo album service called Shortcake. Shortcake makes it easy to create beautifully-designed keepsake albums. The design service will gather your photos and social content (think dates, locations, status updates, comments…), and use the details you’ve collected and shared to create a beautiful scrapbook of your family’s moments and adventures. The only thing you have to do is connect your social and photo storage accounts, fill out a form with some details, and then sit back and wait for the design to come in. Ah-mazing! Goodbye mommy guilt. Hello beautiful, personalized album of my daughter’s first year.

Want to create one? Use code “NUGGET” to get 10% off the design fee for your first order at www.shortcakeinc.com/order. Offer expires 7/21.

I recently connected with Coralee to talk about her business and just how she keeps it all together. Check out what Coralee has to say in our latest Inspiring Moms feature!

On Motherhood, Work, and Keeping it Together

When did motherhood become real for you?
When my daughter was born. As in literally the moment when she came out of me. It wasn’t real until I saw her. My actual first words on seeing her were “Holy *, it’s a baby.” (Oh the panic of first-time motherhood.) For me, no matter how much I “knew” I had a baby in there while pregnant, I didn’t really know until I saw her in person, crying and defenseless and needing our care and attention.

What is the most surprising thing about motherhood?
The paradox of extremes. How quickly (as in seconds) you can go from being completely frustrated and overwhelmed and desperate for anyone to take over for you, to utterly melting in a pool of love and cuddles.

What is the scariest thing about motherhood?
The vulnerability of having your heart walking around outside your body.

What inspired you to start Shortcake?
A little before my daughter’s first birthday, I started feeling guilty because I hadn’t been writing down her milestones and special moments in the baby book I bought for her. Both my mom and my mother-in-law had kept lovely baby books for my husband and I, so I felt awful that I hadn’t done the same. Then I thought about how I had shared most of my daughter’s most important moments with family and friends on social media, which included written descriptions, captured the date, and received some fun comments that I liked looking back on. “Somebody must have a business that will help me turn that into a really nice album, right?” I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I decided to create it myself!

What are you most proud of?
In truth, I’m really proud of myself for starting this business. It might be the hardest thing I’ve ever done. There were so many times I could have quit when it got hard, but I didn’t, and I’m proud of what I’ve created. I love knowing I’m a role model for my daughter and other moms I know who are thinking of starting a new career.

What has been the hardest thing about balancing your business and being a mom?
Taking control of my time. It is not easy and I struggle with it. I’m still a full-time caregiver to our daughter while also putting in full-time hours running Shortcake from our home office, so if I want to achieve something (whether personal or business) I have to block out time for it or else it doesn’t get done. Being pregnant isn’t helping – it’s SO tempting to take a nap during naptime instead of working.

#MomTip: What is your best advice for other mamas who are trying to make it all work?
Write out your to do list for the next day before you go to bed. (That’s when all your reminders and lists are swimming around in your head and keeping you awake in bed anyway, right?) I’ve seen this simple trick greatly help my productivity (and help me get to sleep faster too). Then in the morning I don’t have to use my brain at all – I just look at my list and know what I need to focus on.

What can’t you live without?
Some help! Like many new moms, I struggled in the beginning with letting someone non-family watch our daughter. But once we finally hired our first sitter about a year ago….it’s so great. I currently have a sitter come watch her for a few hours twice a week so that I can get in some extra work time, and it is the best. Our daughter loves the sitter too and has such fun playing with her. Win-win.

First thing you do when you put your kiddos to bed…
Have some dessert and talk to my husband. He doesn’t get home from work until our daughter’s bedtime (and I’m usually still half-asleep when he leaves in the morning), so after bedtime is the only good hangout time we get. Then it’s either time for me to go back to work or call it a day. Did I mention pregnancy with a toddler is exhausting? Follow Shortcake on Instagram , Facebook and check out the Shortcake blog. Stay tuned… I’m in the process of creating my own Shortcake album of my daughter’s first year. Can’t wait to share it with all of you!

Inspiring Moms: Noelle at Oh Happy Play

By | Brand Spotlight, Inspiring Moms, Mompreneurs, Parenting | No Comments

Meet Noelle Bryant. Mama to two adorable little girls, Joie (2 years) and Lola (1 year), and the owner and creator behind the amazingly adorable Oh Happy Play blog. If you want some seriously adorable inspiration for baby fashion, nursery design, or just a real point-of-view on motherhood, the Oh Happy Play blog and @ohhappyplay Instagram page are must-follows! My personal favorite is the KIDspiration section as I am in the process of decorating the nursery for Baby Griffith #2!

Noelle is truly the epitome of an Inspiring Mom and I just don’t know how she does it! I recently connected with Noelle to learn about her life and just how keeps it all together. Check out what she had to share in our latest Inspiring Moms feature!

Noelle Bryant: On Motherhood, Work, and Keeping it Together

When did motherhood become real for you?
When I became pregnant with my first. We had a long journey to get there, that most don’t know about, so when we finally became pregnant it was an instant connection for me.

What is the most surprising thing about motherhood?
I was most surprised with the amount of love and protectiveness I could have over one being. And even more surprised that it could happen again when my second was born!

What is the scariest thing about motherhood?
The scariest thing would be the unknowns, the “Am I screwing this up” moments, the constant need to remind myself of my trust in a higher being. As a mother I worry about my girls and their safety every minute of every day. I worry if I am messing them up if I happen to lose patience over something. I worry if I am not giving them enough attention or so on. But what I have learned is that we are all doing our best and our children love us unconditionally regardless. This is all just a part of motherhood.

What inspired you to start Oh Happy Play?
My girls! As a mom I always want the best, coolest new products and every time I would find one my friends would always gush about them. I would get message after message about where I found them and so on. My blog became a natural extension of that! A place where I can share my mommy must haves with other like-minded mamas like myself. Without my girls I wouldn’t have the constant inspiration. Motherhood really got my creative juices flowing and I am so thankful for my girls and a chance to share it with all of you!

What are you most proud of?
Again, my girls. But also my husband for allowing me to follow my dreams! Without my family and their support I wouldn’t have the eagerness to go on. They are what I am most proud of and my inspiration.

What has been the hardest thing about balancing your blog and being a mom?
Time! I am home with my girls and when they are awake I want to give them all the attention they deserve. Even at night when they’re sleeping I want to give my time to my husband. So the hardest thing is finding the time. When something is a passion it tends become easier to find time. I have learned to get my work done while they nap or have independent play times. I involve them in much of my work so that makes things easy too! But there could always be more time!

#MomTip: What is your best advice for mamas who are trying to make it all work?
Give yourself a break! Don’t try and do it all or all at once. Make lists! I make a list every Sunday evening for what I would like to do for the week. I make a personal list and a business list. I make them as realistic as possible then I work between the two to see which I can do cohesively. Don’t over do it!

What can’t you live without?
My lists! (ha-ha). And a good planner. I have to schedule out my week so that I can keep everything even. I make sure I get the girls out a fair amount but also schedule myself some “down days” where I can get some work done at home.

First thing you do when you put your kiddos to bed…
Eat dinner with my husband! There will come a day (and probably very soon) that family dinners will be very important but at their age I don’t think this is necessary yet. My husband and I can’t get a word in with both girls around so it is nice to have that quiet time to enjoy each other…and warm food.

Inspiring Moms: Mother’s Day Giveaway

By | Inspiring Moms, Little Nugget App, Mompreneurs | No Comments

We’re a new generation of moms that are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to pave our own path for motherhood. Though that path is not always easy or clear to navigate. Whether you are a stay at home mom, working full time, starting your own business, or something in between, you deserve praise every day. You are all inspiring in your own way. Keep it up mamas.

In honor of Mother’s Day I’ve partnered with six amazing brands for a giveaway that will spoil one lucky mama– Little Poppy Co, KB Cute Designs, Madeline’s Box, Bump Club and Beyond, Mama and Little, and Chime by Sitter City. Each of these brands were selected because they were essential to helping me get through my daughter’s first year. Even better, they were each founded by some pretty inspiring mamas. Each of these moms have crafted a beautiful version for motherhood that works for them. I’m honored to feature them in this giveaway and also hear their advice on the following question:

“What is your best morsel of advice for balancing your role as mom and founder?”

Lindie and Becca, Little Poppy Co

LittlePoppyCo_Blog

Lindie and Becca are sister’s-in-law and the mama duo behind the adorable bow subscription service, Little Poppy Co. If you have a little girl and don’t want to spend a TON of money on sweet bows, then a subscription to Little Poppy Co’s is a must– $11.95 a month for 3 handmade bows. My daughter Leslie has been wearing their bows since October and we absolutely love them. Needless to say, I am giddy when I see their little pink package in my mailbox!

For our Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Little Poppy Co is giving away one 3-month bow subscription. That is nine adorable handmade bows. Hooray!

 

Kerri Blaser, KB Cute Designs

KBCute_Blog

One of the things I learned when my daughter was born is there is no such thing as too many swaddle blankets.  There are so many options out there, but none quite as adorable as the handmade creations from KB Cute Designs. The mama, designer and owner, Kerri Blaser, hand-makes everything from swaddles to quilts to crib sheets and more. All of her fabrics are handpicked, and if you ask me, the vintage floral options are irresistible. I’m just in love with her creations and can’t say enough about the quality. If you are looking for something unique for your little boy or girls room, KB Cute Designs is the place to look!

For our Inspiring Moms Giveaway, KB Cute Designs is giving away a $50 store credit.

Heather Ferguson, Madeline’s Box

MadelinesBox_Blog

I’ll admit it, before my daughter was born I SWORE I would NEVER let my baby have a pacifier. Fast forward 16 months and “Mr. Binks” is my daughter’s fifth appendage. When the realization came that I needed to physically attach Mr. Binks to my daughter, I was so disappointed with the options available. Alas, I found Madeline’s Box. The founder and designer, Heather Ferguson, had the same struggle when her son was born and did something about it. Madeline’s Box was one of the first to offer stylish and handmade leather braided pacifier clips. The are simple, beyond adorable, and come in so many colors. A must-have for your little babe!

For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Madeline’s Box is giving away a 3-pack of leather braided pacifier clips. Bonus, you get to choose the colors!

 

Lindsay Pinchuck, Bump Club and Beyond

bcbblog

One of the biggest changes a woman can go through in her life is becoming a mother. Everything changes, and it changes quickly. Preparing for, having and raising children is one of the most incredible stages in life. But it is also one of the hardest. Us moms and moms-to-be need a community of other moms to lean on. When I was pregnant with my daughter a friend introduced me to Bump Club and Beyond. Founded by Lindsay Pinchuck when she was only 8 weeks pregnant Bump Club and Beyond’s mission is to connect the moms and moms-to-be with the best products, resources, experts and most importantly, with each other. Joining this community is a must for any new or expecting mama-to-be!

For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Bump Club and Beyond is giving you a chance to get away and be pampered with a Box of 3 Blowouts from DryBar. What mama doesn’t love having someone else do her hair for once?!

 

 Arleene  Taylor, Mama and Little

mamaandlittleblog

We’ve all heard the horror stories about teething. When my daughter’s first tooth starting cutting I made a mad dash to the store to buy her teething beads to chew on. Just a day later I found one of the beads rolling across the floor [insert a massive state of mama panic]! After a quick online search for “safe teething beads” I found Mama and Little’s stylish teething bead necklaces. Mama and Little was founded by Arleene Taylor and her husband soon after their son was born. I absolutely love Arleen’s designs because only are they durable and  safe for my daughter, the styles are something you can wear all the time. Bonus, my daughter absolutely loves chewing on them!

For the Inspiring Moms Giveaway, Mama and Little is giving away a $50 store credit. You get to pick your favorite chew-friendly and stylish bauble!

 

Genevieve Thiers, Chime by Sitter City

Chime_Blog

Have you ever made plans with friends and completely spaced booking a sitter? Have an amazing date night planned to only have your childcare cancel on you that same day? Called every sitter in your phone with no luck? In my first year as a mom all of these things happened to me. Thankfully I found Chime by Sitter City. Think of it as the Uber for childcare. Chime is an on-demand childcare app that makes it easy to find a trusted sitter at the last minute.
