The Best Things I Bought on Amazon in 2019


Lace Racerback Nursing Bra – The BEST nursing bra for warm weather. Unlike every other nursing bra ever, this one is actually PRETTY and you don’t mind if it shows a little.

Leopard T-Shirt – At first I thought I wouldn’t like it because it’s sort of a different material almost like a rashgaurd. But I LOVE it. Super comfortable and instantly stylish. It’s going to transition into fall so well, too!

Button-Down Dress– Yep, I wore this dress on REPEAT all summer. So comfy, nursing-friendly, and I get compliments every time I wear it. Also comes in tons of colors. It’s true to size, I’m a small. It’s sort of on the shorter side, I’m 5’9″. I do NOT like wearing super short dresses and it’s not too short for me, but if you are lifting your arms a lot or really moving around, it may feel too short depending on what you’re comfortable with. I just always wear boxer-brief style underwear with it.

Black Jumpsuit – This jumpsuit literally feels like wearing pajamas but is chic enough to wear for date night. Fits true to size. Can be worn off the shoulder on one side or fully off the shoulder. Cinched wasit and pockets. Lightweight material but NOT see through. Is nursing friendly because it’s off the shoulder.

Ruffle Hem Top – This is just the most simple, comfy, flattering top. I love that it feels like a nice classic top you can style with white skinny jeans, but it feels like a super comfy t-shirt. Plus, the ruffle hem is INSANELY forgiving.

Camo Sweatpants – I love these joggers! They fit TTS but definitely have room, so you COULD size down if you like joggers snugger. They have pockets and fleece lining (so they are lounger joggers – not for working out.) I love the grey camo but they also come in a ton of solid colors.

Oversized Sweater– It’s SO comfortable. It’s long enough to wear with leggings but works with jeans, too. I love the ribbed sleeve detail. It’s very lightweight so doesn’t feel too bulky even though it’s so oversized. It’s a one size fits all, which is always a little worrisome, but worked for me.


USB + Outlet Plug – These are brilliant, you plug them into a normal outlet and immediately get an extra plug and some USB charging ports. We use them in our kitchen and bedroom.

Garbage and Recycling Bin Combo – Kinda feel silly having a garbage bin on my favorites but this is another brilliant item. So simple having garbage and recycling together.

Packing Cubes– A lifesaver for traveling. I could never go back to just having everything in a suitcase. I use each cube for a different type of thing to make finding everything a cinch. Also amazing for kids.

Mid Century Flush Mount Light– We bought this for our living room and love it! It’s SUPER bright (we put it on a dimmer) and looks awesome. We get compliments on it all the time.

Paper Organizer– We have this in our kitchen for all those random papers like mail, forms, to-dos, etc. It keeps it off the counter and whenever we are looking for that “one paper” we know where it is.

Keychain Wallet – Having my keys and wallet together in one is amazing. The last thing I need is to be looking for 2 things when I need to leave the house. I always hang my keys in the hook in our kitchen and now, by default, my wallet is always there, too.


Munchkin Cup Tops– If your kid uses the Munchkin 360 cups, you need these tops, you’re welcome.

Hudson Booties– Used these EVERY SINGLE DAY last winter. They keep little feet warm and Miles almost never kicked them off (unlike socks which came off immediately). I just ordered the 18-24 size for Miles to wear around the house and at daycare. Another option are the Zutano booties. These are a little more pricy but actually stay on just a LITTLE bit better. I

Carter’s Sleep Sacks – My favorite sleep sacks to use once we transitioned out of the swaddles and sleepsuits. I wish they went bigger than 9 months because they are a great price and the zippers never broke once (I can’t tell you how many sleep sacks I used with bad zippers). After this, we transitioned to the Burt’s Bees Beekkeeper sacks.

Nail Filer – One of you suggested I get this little battery-operated nail buffer and I haven’t looked back. GAME CHANGER. They file his nails but also buff them so much smoother! He’s barely scratched himself once since I started using it.

Merlin’s Magic Sleep Suit. We used this to transition from swaddle to sleep sacks. This thing is a ridiculous puffy suit that looks like your baby is about to fly to Mars. We called it his astronaut suit. But, basically, it provides the feeling and closeness and security that the swaddle does, while allowing some movement to their arms. For Miles, a baby who loved the swaddle, it was the perfect in-between.

Fleece One Piece – I bought this for winter and it’s AMAZING. Pop it on over any outfit for immediate warmth. It’s perfect for the stroller, thin enough for the car seat. Honestly, the best cold-weather piece I’ve bought.

ChooMee Pouch Tops – These are pouch tops, which are just universal tops to put on top of any toddler pouch that prevents them from squeezing it all out (and all over them and you). It also is designed to slow down the feed so they don’t suck it down in 15 seconds. They are SO good. No more messes when he has a pouch on the go.

Contigo Stainless Steel Cup – This is my favorite “toddler” cup. We did use the OXO Cup when Miles was first learning but he drops his cups all the time and broke it. So, we upgraded to this one.

Spoosie Pads – If you have a baby that pees through their diapers at night these are the best. It’s basically just a little extra absorption and great for tummy sleepers!
