Time for this month’s installment of Amazon finds and buys!

Noodle & Boo 2-in-1 Newborn Hair & Body Wash – Possibly my favorite newborn shampoo and body wash! I have quite a baby shampoo collection and this one smells amazing!

Igloo Swift Water Bottles – I spied these on Amazon for a whopping $8 and bought three of them for the kids! They make great water bottles for school.

3 Tier Shoe Rack – I have two of these stacked on top of each other in my closet for my shoes. I added another 3 tiers to basically go up the entire wall and all my shoes have a home now. They are sturdy and super easy to put together. Would also make for great pantry or garage shelving.

Battery Operated Clip-on Mini Fan – This was a summer time baby purchase! It’s so hot, I can’t imagine NOT having a mini fan pointing at the baby when we go outside. I know there are many on the market, but this one had great reviews regarding it’s power. Being in Florida, we need all the fan power we can get.

Women’s Loose Pocket Split Maxi  – I think I feature some maxi dress on a previous Amazon Buys post, and I seriously have like 6 now. I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful these are for me this summer. They are SO comfortable. I bought a Small and it’s still pretty loose on my pregnant belly. Maxi Relaxi!

Otterbox Commuter Phone Case – I have an Otterbox case on my phone at all times since little kid’s always seem to be handling it. This is a repeat purchase, I just went with a different color (Ballet Pink) this time. I don’t find this case to be as bulky so some of the other heavy duty ones.

Vtech Write & Learn Creative Center – My four-year-old loves writing her name on EVERYTHING and uses half my computer paper (even though I’ve purchased multiple notepads for her) for her scribbles, drawings, and writing practice. This has been used by all three of my kids (ages 2-6). My 6-year-old uses it to draw pictures as it gives step by step instructions on how to draw different animals and object. The only thing I don’t like is that the volume is pretty low and not adjustable.

Mini 2-cup Stovetop Espresso Pot – Father’s day gift for my espresso loving hubs. We saw one of these at an Italian shop months ago and I thought it was the cutest! It had been on my “list” since and it gets used often!

LÍLLÉbaby Ring Sling – I needed a new infant baby sling and the LÍLLÉbaby brand is coming more and more popular, so I thought I’d give it a shot. I love the color, gold rings, and removable pocket. The material is soft and breathable and there’s not a massive amount of it (like the Moby wrap I had no luck with). All baby slings have an adjustment period, and YouTube videos are great to figure out your perfect fit.

adidas Women’s Adilette Cloudfoam+ Slides – Seriously the most comfortable slide sandals in all the land! I have been wearing these everywhere since they arrived and I even bought my husband a matching pair, because everyone deserves this kind of comfort!
For the Men’s pair: adidas Originals Men’s Adilette Shower Slide Sandal

The First Years Gum Drop Newborn Pacifier – I went off the reviews for this purchase! All my kids have hated pacifiers and I know I’m going to be desperate at times for baby #4 to take one. This is said to be great for breastfeeding babies and distributed worldwide in hospitals for baby’s intro pacifier. Hopefully they work. The $10.99 for a 5 pack is a great deal too!

Lasko Wind Curve Fan – I must have been really hot this month with all these fan purchases! Hello Summer! I purchased two of these for the house. One for the garage (where our little home gym is located) and another for the back porch for when the baby comes. I know I’ll be spending tons of time watching the older kids swim in the pool, and I needed an extra gust of wind thrown at me (and baby!) for these next couple of hot months.
