Pregnancy is one of the most memorable and exciting times in a woman's life...but it can also be exhausting and stressful at times too. It is for this reason that all moms need a little spoiling and pampering during this time. Today I am excited to share with you a company that is perfect for just that- Baby Bump Bundle!
Here is a little bit of information about the company and what they have to offer:
When Mairead became pregnant with her first child in January 2012, she realized that as you go through one of the most amazing and beautiful, yet stressful and emotional times in a woman's life, there was a real opportunity to provide a service that pampers the mother-to-be with functional and fun products. Mairead and Michelle created the BumpBundle to provide gifts for modern moms through each trimester of this exciting time and the BabyBundle, as the perfect gift for the celebration of baby’s arrival.
We offer an amazing chance for boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, partners, sisters, mothers, best friends, or whoever has a special someone in their life, to buy a gift for those that just found out they are expecting. It’s the gift that keeps on giving though since you can purchase a subscription for all three bundles, with a delivery of a surprise care package each trimester throughout the pregnancy. We handpick around 5 items for modern moms that are sure to make her feel and look great during this exciting time of her life.
For this review, Michelle was kind enough to send me a BumpBundle to try out for myself. When it arrived, I was so excited to see what was inside that I completely forgot to take a picture of the packaging before ripping into it! So, you'll have to take my word that it was packaged beautifully, each item wrapped individually in bright pops of pink and blue tissue paper. So fun! Here's a look at what was in my bundle:
Bella B Mama Soak: This bath soak is pregnancy friendly, featuring organic ingredients like acai, green tea, pomegranate, avocado and jojoba. I'm not usually much of a bath person, but I absolutely LOVED this soak! First of all, it smelled wonderful- not too strong which was great since some smells even in the third trimester are still making me nauseous, but a very relaxing scent. I also have extremely dry skin, and after using the soak, I could certainly see a difference in my skin! It can also be used post pregnancy to help with soothing and healing!
JoJo Love's You Bling: These cute little earrings are hand-crafted in Boston, MA and are absolutely adorable...I know for me personally, I don't always feel super cute during pregnancy...in fact, most days I feel as though I look exhausted as I feel, so I love this little fun extra to make mom feel a little more glamorous!
Udder Covers Nursing Cover: This is perhaps one of my favorite items in my bundle. I have a few nursing covers already, but can you really have too many? Especially when they are as cute as this one! Since I am due in August, I love that the Udder Covers are lightweight enough to be used even in the summer months too! With my son, I only had a simple all black cover- it served its purpose, but was pretty boring. Every mom deserves a pretty cover that allows her to nurse discreetly, and still look cute...the Udder Covers cover certainly takes care of that! This will definitely be making it's way into my hospital bag!
Knocked Up Nail Polish: This was another of my favorites. First of all, I never knew there was such a thing as pregnancy safe nail polish...but with the chemicals in most all other beauty products, I suppose that makes sense! And it's child friendly as well, so if I decide I want to paint baby's nails when she's a bit older, it will be safe to use on her! But beyond the safety issues, it's also a ton of fun! The color I received was called 'Still Rockin' My Pink Bikini'...hilarious! And beautiful. I also found that this polish seemed to last a bit longer than other nail polishes I've used, which makes it perfect for pregnancy pedicures in the third trimester when it's a struggle to see your toes, let alone paint them!!
Earth Mama Angel Baby Third Trimester Tea: USDA Certified 100% Organic Third Trimester Tea was formulated as a tonic for mamas who are heading into the home stretch (pardon the pun)! This delicious blend of vitamin and mineral packed herbs was formulated especially to nurture all those mama parts gearing up for the joyous arrival of your angel baby. Personally, I haven't yet tried this one yet, as I wanted to save it for closer to time for baby to arrive, so I cannot say how it tastes. I can however say it smells absolutely wonderful. I cannot wait to use it in preparation for the arrival of our baby girl.
Overall, I absolutely loved my BumpBundle! First of all, I love how personal it was- each item is handpicked to be ideal for whatever stage in pregnancy you're in...I am in the third trimester so mine was geared more toward preparing for birth. First and second trimester bundles would be more geared towards mom's needs at that time. (They even offer a Baby Bundle and Breastfeeding Bundle as well for after baby arrives!) But my favorite part of the BumpBundle is that it's the perfect mix of practical and fun! In my particular bundle, the bath soak and tea are ideal for preparing for labor and healing afterwards and the nursing cover is an essential for after baby arrives. These are all very practical. The earrings and nail polish, though not necessarily a must have, are a fun way to pamper yourself or the mom in your life...and every mom deserves that little something extra, just for her!

3rd trimester – It’s time to think about packing up the hospital bag!
