friday faves: baby edition

hi guys and HAPPY FRIDAY! here are 5 of my favorite or most-requested baby items that are ON SALE right now for this week's friday faves:

mint arrow baby favorites on sale

1. the belly bandit: hard to find on sale and AMAAAAZING! helped me so much while recovering from a c-section but will help after any type of birth. creates a slimming effect and helps your hips go back into place after widening for childbirth (and yes this happens even if you don't push the baby out – trust me!). normally $60, on sale $34.99 in nude/plaid or black.
**update** the smalls sold out FAST for the belly bandit but the hip bandit is available in small! will help your hips shrink back to their pre-baby size and is $24.
2. city versa stroller: a $400 stroller on sale for $199! this is where the amazingness of the city select meets the light-weightness and quick fold of the city mini. it will let you face the baby forward, backward, or with an attachment click their infant car seat right into the frame (you WILL want this!! picture baby falling asleep in the car and waking them up to transport into a stroller seat? NO FREAKING THANK YOU!).   it's stroller perfection minus the double stroller feature (if you have a second kiddo who still needs a stroller you'll want the city select, but no amazing sales on that one right now, sorry!).
3. trumpette socks: the only socks that would stay on my baby's feet when she was 0-12 mo! we swore by these since we had a late fall baby in cold utah. these go on sale at the nordstrom anniversary sale every year but otherwise are hard to find for a deal. on sale $6.99-12.99 (normally $22-29).
4. petunia pickle bottom bags: a whole bunch of PPB bags that are on sale for $99 (normally $165-189). LOVE ppb for their compartments, cuteness, they think of everything. truly the most functional diaper bags out there.
5. motorola baby monitor + binatone babysense baby movement sensor package: flash sale for $159.99 (normally $249.99) and selling like hot cakes! amazing ratings. we have a different motorola monitor and LOVE it.

  1. Hi! do you have any idea what the sizing is like for the belly bandit? There was a sizing chart, but I don’t have a belly yet so it wasn’t very helpful. I usually wear a medium, sometimes small in tops and bottoms, but wondered what you know. Thanks for posting! Great deals!

    1. hey ali! it’s SO hard to know for sure the best size. i guessed a medium and that was perfect for me. i also usually wear medium (sometimes smalls) in tops! their sizing isn’t that helpful but even if you get it and it’s a little too small to wear right when you deliver your belly will go down on its own within the first week and you’ll fit into it. i guess what i’m trying to say is that you’ll probably have use for it either way! i know women who say that’s the first thing they ask for after they deliver, while they’re still in the hospital. but my medium never would’ve fit me in the hospital! i had to wait maybe 5ish days before i could use it if i remember right. hope that helps!

      1. Okay, great! I’ll shoot for medium then. I’m guessing it will work but just wanted to make sure the sizing wasn’t too weird. Thanks for responding and being so helpful!

  2. What an awesome sale on the stroller! STILL waiting for the day when the City Select for the double goes on sale! Then that baby is mine:) Love your friday faves!
