ABC Kids and such

Sorry it took me so long to post a recap of ABC! The Babylist team went to Las Vegas October 17-21 for the ABC Kids expo. It was my first time going to ABC but had heard lots about it in previous years. We were totally swamped and exhausted by the end of each day, but I am glad I was able to go. We posted a lot of Facebook live videos for various products, so check out Babylist on FB to see those. So, in case you missed them, here are some of my highlights -

First official bump shot with Cat from Thrifty Littles.

I really love this new Black on Black Indie stroller from Bumbleride. The company and employees are incredible.  I was debating between two strollers (the Uppababy Vista and the Baby Jogger City Select) but Bumbleride swooped it and took first place in my mind. The only con for me is that it isn't convertible like the other two I mentioned, but I love everything else. I plan to get the bassinet too since we are going to be city parents and do a lot of walking (vs driving with the carseat).

Breastfeeding monitor. I did a Facebook live about this monitor because it was so awesome. Momsense is a new, smart breastfeeding monitor that tracks how much your baby has nursed. WHAT! I know, barely seems possible. But low milk supply is always listed as a top reason why mothers quit breastfeeding and switch to formula - making this monitor a real game changer.

Dock a Tot. As if we couldn't love the Dock A Tot more, they launched a smart baby monitor system at ABC called CloudTot. Luckily it will work with your existing Dock A Tot if you've already purchased one. Stay tuned on their blog and website for more details as they get closer to that item being available for purchase. (if you can't wait, Babylist also did a Facebook live about the CloudTot so definitely watch that for more info).

In the world of pregnancy, I am now 20 weeks along. We had our long 20 week ultrasound this past week and I loved seeing how big she has gotten. Everything looked healthy and perfect, which we are so thrilled about. That will likely be our last ultrasound for this pregnancy- the next time we see her will be at delivery!
(omg she's so cute)

I'm feeling more movement by the week and Nate was finally able to feel her squirm around at about 19 weeks and 2 days. I am still feeling really good, so no complaints. I've started thinking more about delivery, which just has me more excited to finally meet her. She has a first name but no middle name yet (we are keeping both a secret). My family calls her Macaroni - with the exception of my 3 year old niece who has named the baby "Boogers". (hahaha) Yay for being half way done! (plus or minus two weeks). 

Also, a colleague and I started a Babylist BFF pregnancy video series on Facebook, if anyone is interested in following along. :-)
