Mama Musts

Something is in the water right now-
in the past couple of weeks several of my friends have announced that they are expecting!  Woohoo! 
So in honor of all the new mama's to-be- here is my latest roundup of pregnant mama essentials. 

First off, I just saw and have fallen in love with Perry Mackin Diaper Bags.  They are stylish and practical, with compartments for bottles and binkies- and are all under $200.  I like that they are chic enough to actually carry and don't scream "diaper bag".

The Harper Bag
The HATCH Collection has been getting a lot of attention lately, and rightly so... 
I love the idea of investing in a couple really great pieces that can carry you throughout pregnancy and after- and not in the "bridesmaid dress you can wear again" kind of way.  We all know that no one ever wears a bridesmaid dress again, and the last thing that new moms want to do is put on maternity clothes after the delivery.  
But these pieces are things I want to wear all the time.

Every person out there needs to have a pot of Kiehls Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter.  I leave it on my nightstand and slather my hands and arms with it before bed each night.  But pregnant moms could use this on their belly's and I bet it would be incredible!

The best maternity jeans out there are Gap.  The designer jeans are not nearly as comfortable and fit as well.   Wouldn't you rather save your money to buy a cute pair that you can wear longer than 9 months?!

A good scarf/wrap really is something one can't have enough of.  I like a peppy color or print to perk up those subdued winter clothes, and even more bland maternity clothes.  It really can make all the difference in an outfit, keep a mama warm, and later be used to cover up a little while nursing.  This one is JCrew (and is on sale!).

Congrats to all the pregnant mamas out there!  It really is such a joy and a blessing to have a bambino on the way.
And, for the record (because everyone keeps asking), I am NOT pregnant :)
