Feeding Must-Haves With LoveBrownSugar
When I first discovered I would become a mom, a few fears raced through my mind. The first: Will I be a good Mother? I think every mom out there can attest to this same anxiety. The second: Will I live in Mom jeans and no longer be chic? Yes. Real fears. As a fashionista who uses style and beauty as a way to express myself, this was a REAL concern for me. Before becoming a mom, I saw motherhood as this thing that was beautiful but inconsequentially robbed you of your sense of style. Mom jeans. Minivans. Rainbow-colored everything. It would seem that all that comes with motherhood was the antithesis of style.
Well, thankfully, there are some amazing companies and collections like Pottery Barn Modern Baby that are challenging that stereotype. There are options for hip and modern moms like myself to make baby gear an extension of our stylish lives, like super chic nursery decor and fashionable and functional strollers.
This line is one of the newest collections under the Pottery Barn Kids umbrella. Now that I’m a mother of two, I look for products that are multifunctional, elevated in design so that they fit in well with my personal style and are also safe and healthy for my kids. I am loving this new collection because it is a curated collection of trend-forward items that fit seamlessly in to the modern parent’s home. Now that Colton is officially 6 months old, I knew I needed a high chair for him and feeding items like bowls, plates and spoons. So, I partnered with Pottery Barn Modern Baby to capture a few snaps of Colton and I at home during snack time with some key items from the new collection.
One of my favorite items from the collection is the Mima Moon High Chair. I’m obsessed. Not only is it super chic and a welcome addition to our overall home aesthetic, it’s also a 3-in-1 solution because it transitions from a newborn lounger to a feeding high chair to a junior chair for kids. It’s super sleek and modern, comfy for baby and it will transition with him as he grows.
Colton is now transitioning to solids, so I’ve been giving him fresh fruits and veggies pureed, as well as first food baby cookies for teething and he loves them. We have been particularly excited about the Avanchy Organic Bamboo Plates, Spoons and Bowls. The plates and spoons have suction on the bottom, so when Colton gets creative with his food, he doesn’t knock the entire thing over (yes, this has happened). I love the design of the bamboo and the fact that the plates and bowls are lightweight, no-slip, antibacterial, water-resistant, organic and biodegradable. Literally all the things a mama could ask for in feeding utensils.
Overall, I’m excited about this new collection and I can’t wait to acquire more pieces from Pottery Barn Modern Baby. They are timeless and make my life a little more beautiful and easy!
