Baby J's due date is quickly approaching and that means momma has lots of nesting to do! With a rapidly growing belly and to-do list, I also have so many items I need to pick up before our sweet baby's arrival. Luckily, we are a short drive from The Shops At Mission Viejo and I was able to check off so many items on my list in one place! Keep reading to see what I got, my favorite place to shop for baby, and my number one pregnancy craving!
Thank you to The Shops At Mission Viejo for sponsoring this post!
At The Shops At Mission Viejo, there are SO many stores to shop for baby! Whether you need onesies, PJ's, blankets, or bottles- you'll be able to find them! I also love that there are so many affordable options like Old Navy & H&M that both have a nice selection of baby apparel. There's also Pottery Barn Kids for all of your nursery decorating needs and A Pea In The Pod just for momma!
Since I'm 37 weeks pregnant, I'm starting to pack a hospital bag and I was able to find so many items I needed at The Shops At Mission Viejo! I plan on breastfeeding, so the first thing I grabbed was a Boppy and Boppy cover from Pottery Barn Kids. PB Kids often has 20% off of one item type sales, so make sure to take advantage of their amazing sales!
The next item I treated myself to was this nursing nightgown and robe set from A Pea In The Pod. It is PERFECT for summer with the shorter sleeves and lightweight fabric and I love the pretty lace detail. A Pea In The Pod also had a 20% off promotion AND they gave me a bag of goodies with a bottle and lots of coupons I'll definitely be using for must have baby things! I was also able to pick up some nursing pads and I'll definitely be going back after baby to get fitted for a nursing bra because they have so many pretty ones to choose from!
After browsing the baby section of Nordstrom and grabbing one of the best oatmeal raisin cookies of all time (and one of my most craved items during pregnancy), I stopped into my two favorite places to buy baby clothing. First I went to Baby Gap to get a couple of onesies. I absolutely LOVE their baby basics and I know from my nephews and nieces experience that the clothes are well made and wash well! Like Pottery Barn Kids, Baby Gap is always having amazing sales! Sometimes they'll have a 50% off the entire store promotion and the onesies I bought were buy 2 for $20!
My favorite store of all time to buy kids clothing is also at The Shops At Mission Viejo! Cotton:On Kids has THE cutest baby clothes, y'all! I had actually never heard of this store until my first visit to The Shops At Mission Viejo and I am hooked! They have an email list you can sign up for and they often send out 20% off promotion codes but like Gap Kids, they also have great promos like 2 for $30 for their sleep all-in-ones which are AMAZING!
If you have any other hospital bag must-have recommendations, I'd love to hear them in the comments! In the meantime, make sure you're following me on Instagram for baby updates!
