Motherlode Box - The Ultimate Birth Kit (and discount code)

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow with baby #3, so I am getting ready for the big day that is quickly approaching! Since this is my third time preparing for labor, I have an idea of what to expect and what it will be like. I was fortunate enough to have both of my sons vaginally and had smooth and healthy deliveries. But, you also never know what is going to happen. Unfortunately birth is one of those experiences in life that you have no control over, but that is also what makes it an even more incredible experience. :)

It's definitely nerve-wrecking leading up to the end of pregnancy and not knowing when I'll go into labor. I was 41 weeks when I woke up in labor with my first son and then I was induced at 40 weeks with my second son. So who knows if Takoda will come around his due date, if he'll be early, or if he is going to keep us waiting. But what I do know is that this time next month we'll have a baby in our arms! So crazy to think about.

Since his arrival is approaching quickly, I was getting SO excited for my Motherlode Box to come in the mail. I don't know about you guys, but I love boxes like this that are made for something specific (like jewelry, makeup, clothes, pregnancy, etc). There's literally a box for everything nowadays! But I have to be honest, this is the first box I've seen that's made specifically for labor & delivery and I think it's such an incredible idea. So kudos to The Motherlode Box for making this awesome box for expecting mommas!

This would be an amazing gift for someone you know that is pregnant or even a great way to treat yourself if you're having a baby!

Some of what's included in the birth kit:

  • Informational inserts like a hospital bag checklist, visual birth plan, a list of everything that's in the box and the price, and a postpartum depression reference guide
  • a super soft matching gown set (the one for momma has easy nursing access. Just unbotton the side you want to nurse on and you're good to go)
  • a cute mug, mother's milk tea, and a heart shaped infuser
  • aromatherapy inahler
  • honey sticks (great energy boost for while in labor)
  • lip balm, belly balm, and nipple balm
  • letdown collection system
  • burp cloth

So many goodies to help you get through birth! I don't know about you, but it can be super overwhelming thinking about what you need to bring to the hospital and knowing what you will actually use.

I can tell you right now that I'll be using every single one of these products that came in my Motherlode Box. They are all great quality products with great ingredients - which I know is super important to lots of you mommas. :)

I can't wait to get to put all of these to use when it's time for my little guy to come. I opened up my box just today over on my Instagram (you can watch the unboxing videos on my Instagram highlight called "MOTHERLODE") and I'll be packing them in my hospital bag tonight so that everything is ready to go.

If you have any questions about this birth kit, you can send me a message or you can go check out their website or Instagram. If you're interested in getting one for yourself or someone you know, you can use the code "MANDYE" for 10% off!

I also wanted to tell you guys to go check out their Facebook page and Instagram where they share helpful tips about common misconceptions and important information. They are all about helping moms birth the way they want to birth and I love that so much!

I can't wait to come back here and share with you about Takoda's birth and how it went using my products in this birth kit. :)

Bloomlife Pregnancy Tracker + Contraction Monitor Review

I can't believe that as of today I am 34 weeks pregnant. This pregnancy has flown by and we are so close to meeting our third son! I've had the opportunity to try a product recently that has been incredible and I'm so excited to share about it with you guys. I'll be sharing about the Bloomlife contraction monitor in this post and sharing my honest review.

Most of you know this is my third pregnancy. Now, I'm no expert at motherhood and pregnancy, but I do have some experience since this is my third time around. With my first two sons, I never felt any Braxton Hicks. Braxton Hicks are contractions that occur before real labor. They are normal to experience and they are not a sign that you're about to give birth. I like to think of them as the bodies way of preparing for labor. They can start fairly early in your pregnancy and you might not even know that you're experiencing them.  (A good thing to remember about Braxton Hicks and real labor contractions is …

How to Become an Influencer + Collab with Companies

If you want to become an influencer and start collaborating with companies, keep reading! I share my journey as an influencer so far and all that I've learned. Hopefully this can help you get started :)
I'm going to apologize in advance if this is all over the place. Hahaha. Blogging while your needy sick toddlers are around isn't the easiest and I've thought of a million different things I want to talk about as I've been writing, so this may seem a bit scatterbrained. Lol. But hopefully this can help some of y'all that have wanted to start doing this! I enjoy being honest with you guys and hope that you all know how thankful I am for every one of you that I have connected with online!

If you've been following me on Instagram for awhile, you'll know that I haven't been doing this for a long time. In fact, my first collaboration wasn't even until around April of this year, so I've only been doing this for around 9 months. I'm still very …

Being a Young Mom: My Age Doesn't Define My Ability to be a Good Mom

"Being a young parent means we met a little early, but it also means I get to love you a little longer."
I got pregnant when I was 19. My boyfriend (now husband for over 4 years) and I had only known each other for around 7-8 months by the time I got pregnant.
I always hoped I'd be a mom someday, but I never thought I'd become a mom so young. My body was still growing and changing when I got pregnant. I barely had anytime to just feel like a young woman with a woman's body. And before I knew it, my body was no longer just my body...
 My belly and my breasts grew, my feet got swollen, and my skin was no longer smooth... It was hard saying goodbye to my body and knowing things would never quite be the same, but I saw the beauty in it. I knew my body was made for growing life and I tried my best to embrace the changes and prepare for my new life as a young mother.

There are a couple things that I think are amazing (and of course not the only amazing things, but jus…
