Our Favorite Lullaby CDs For Baby

To help our daughter fall asleep on her own we started playing music for her at naps and bedtime around, I want to say 4 months, but it might have been closer to 5 months.

The library became my best friend as we could check out lullaby CDs for 21 days! Plus we could renew them up to 3 times, as long as no one was on the waitlist, which for lullaby CDs, was never, so I was able to hold onto CDs for a total of 63 days, though I usually returned them before then. It was nice as we were able to check out multiple CDs at a time so we could switch them every few days, as trust me, you will get sick of hearing the same first few songs over and over again.

Some CDs were so bad, I didn't even keep them for 21 days! I didn't think there could be bad lullaby CDs, but some of them actually had tunes that were a bit too fast or upbeat and distracted our daughter, rather than relaxed her. We found a Michael Jackson Lullaby CD, which we thought was awesome, but she was not a fan! They were basically instrumentals of his songs, but they forgot to slow the tempo down, so it wasn't very relaxing.

I have been through my fair share of CDs and so I thought I would share which ones are our favorites so you can avoid so many trips to your library, or know which ones are worth buying so you always have a few on hand!

These aren't in any particular order, you can click on the images to find the CD on Amazon! I will note that all of these are instrumental, there is no singing.

Also, the Star Wars lullaby CD does have one fast song which is the "The Cantina Band." It didn't bother our girl, probably because it's further down on the list so she's already asleep by then, but it may bother your baby. I love all the other songs on it though so had to include it!

Baby Leggings Review

Pin Me
Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post. I was not paid by the company to write this review. All opinions are my own. The code provided is a referral and if you use it, I will be rewarded. 

I ordered five pairs of baby leg warmers from Baby Leggings when they were doing a deal for Mother's Day, where I could get five free, but I still had to pay for shipping. It ended up being $5 per legging, so still a great deal!

It took about three days for me to get my purchase in the mail, so pretty quick, and they looked like good quality. However, I had received a wrong pair. I contacted the company and they quickly shipped me the correct leggings, without asking for the wrong one back, so I ended up with a total of 6 free leg warmers! I was very impressed with how quickly they resolved the issue and that they let me keep the wrong pair they had sent.

You can get $50 off your purchase (that's 5 free leg warmers!) at Baby Leggings by using promo code:

10EB8C7C7

You do have to pay for shipping, but it still comes to only about $5 per pair depending on which shipping method you choose, which is a pretty good deal. Usually, they are $10 per pair and you have to pay shipping costs.

The leggings are on the bigger side and I wasn't able to use them till my girl was around 7 months, even then I had to fold up the ends. She is currently 11 months now and I don't have to roll them up anymore, but you can tell that they are still a bit big so they have plenty of use left in them! I am hoping they will fit her up to age 2.


I was worried about the quality due to the price, but they are surprisingly thick and have held up multiple washes, not to mention crawling! There are many cute prints to choose from, both for girls and boys!

The great thing about the leg warmers is it makes diaper changes a breeze. You don't have to pull them off like you do with pants, so baby's legs stay warm and you can change a diaper with less hassle. I highly recommend these during the winter season!

30 Gifts For Adults That Give Back

Disclosure: Affiliate links are used in this post. Any purchase you make using these links supports this site.

Like I did for my previous post "20 Gifts For Kids That Give Back," I have decided to do the same for adults! All of the stores in this list will donate a portion of their sales to various charities and organizations.
 
1) United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) - UNICEF has an online market full of various gifts from jewelry, musical instruments, to area rugs! 90% of their profit goes to helping children all over the world, providing everything from food to health care.

2) Guylian Belgian Chocolate
 - A portion of all of Guylian's sales goes towards Project Seahorse, a small conservation group dedicated to helping seahorses. This is my favorite brand of chocolate, so I highly recommend it as a gift for any chocolate lover!

3) Munchkin's Project Orca - Munchkin recently launched an #OrcasLiveInOceans campaign, where 100% of proceeds from their #OcrasLiveInOceans clothing goes towards building a coastal ocean sanctuary in the U.S. for captive orcas. Tee shirts are $25 and sweatshirts are $48. I actually own both sweatshirts and they are super comfy!

4) Toms
 - Toms shoes have a one for one program, so everytime you buy a Toms product, you are helping a person in need, from providing them with a pair of shoes to a safe birth.

5) Roma - Roma has a program called "Give Poverty of the Boot." Basically, for every pair of boots sold, a brand new pair of boots is donated to a child in need. Also, 10% of all of Roma's sales go to the Roma Foundation, which provides aid and education to children in poverty. Now rain boots on their own might not be the best gift, but you could do something cute like stick a bouquet of flowers in them!

6) Better World Books - Every time you purchase a book from Better World Books, they will donate a book to someone in need. Great gift for a book-lover!

7) Best Friends - Products you purchase from the Best Friends store goes towards helping animals find safe and loving homes! They have various shirts and accessories that would make great presents for a pet loving friend!
