Today, I’m joining some fabulous bloggers and sharing my mommy must haves.
I’ve already done a few post on my favorite items.
So, today I’m sharing the things that I cannot live without.
The things that get me through the day.
My mommy musts.
1. EOS Lip Balm
This is hands down my favorite lip balm.
I have on in the diaper bag, on my night stand, in my car and my office.
Whether breastfeeding or not, you have to drink a lot of water.
I’ve tried many water bottles and this one is my favorite.
I live in these tanks.
They’re cheap, comfortable and last forever.
They go perfectly with leggings.
I wash my hands more than ever before with a little one.
My hands started getting dry not long after AG was born.
This lotion keeps them feeling soft all day and smells delicious.
5. Lara Bars
One thing I need to work on is making time to eat.
I’m so busy most days trying to get through my to do list.
I finish one thing and move on to the next, often looking up at the clock realizing I didn’t eat lunch.
I always keep these bars with me.
They are my favorite on the go bars.
I need it to start my day.
I look forward to my cup each morning.
I also have an obsession with coffee mugs.
I love these leggings from Target because they have a large band at the top.
They’re perfect for holding things in and slimming down that annoying pouch that most women have after baby is born.
These shirts are my favorite.
I bought them a few years ago and wished I would have bought more.
They were perfect for the early stages of pregnancy when I was hiding my bump.
They were perfect for the days of pregnancy when I felt blah.
They were especially perfect for after baby.
They hid the belly issues I had and made me feel normal.
When I saw they were back in the stores, I made sure to pick up one in every color.
They go perfectly with skinny jeans, jeggings and leggings.
One thing to add to this list:
Phone- pictures, apps to keep me entertained while nursing and talking to friends

My must have was the Kindle my husband bought for my birthday. I would say I got BEYOND my money's worth with that gift as I read book after book and became involved in the blogging world. Nursing takes so much time and it was such a nice device to keep me occupied while snuggling with my little one.
I need to try that hand cream – my hands have been SO dry this pregnancy! Love your list!
Great list! I need to get a water bottle to keep at my desk. Since I stopped breast feeding, I've not been as dilligent with my water intake. I need to refocus! Those target leggings sound great!
If I had to choose one mommy must have, it would be my iPad. In the beginning, I used a great app (BabyLog) to track feedings, diaper changes, sleep, etc. I used it to entertain myself while nursing, time feedings, take pictures – it was my saving grace.

I'm taking notes!! Love this post!
Love this list! Old Navy does seriously have the best tank tops – and they are the perfect length (especially after you get used to maternity tops – you can almost never go back to 'normal' length!). Will have to try that lip balm and the express tops, too! Thanks so much for sharing!! XO
Love this!! I love that Cashmere lotion, smells good too!! Thanks for sharing!
