Sonny’s Newest Essential

This post is sponsored by JOHNSON’S. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It’s officially been one year since Sonny was born, and I can’t believe how fast time flew by!

From pregnancy to the present, I’ve researched and tried many products on Sonny to see what worked for his skin type (he has sensitive skin, just like his mama ;)). Something that’s remained a constant for him throughout these past months are Johnson’s baby products. The brand was one of my mom’s go-to’s for my siblings and I back in the day, so it only felt natural integrating their products into Sonny’s life!

Grow with Gugu: Cool Toys & Books

This post is a part of our new Grow with Gugu series by Monica Banks, founder of Gugu Guru – the ultimate baby product discovery site for style-savvy moms.

We’ve taken a little hiatus from the baby registry series over the past few months and it’s been so fun to watch Sonny grow. As Sonny has matured, so has this series of posts; we’ll no longer be focusing on baby registry essentials but will be focusing now on the best products for toddlerhood and beyond. Even though Sonny is changing, Whitney’s preferences for high-quality, eco-friendly and minimalist products have not. So all of these product recommendations meet all or some of that criteria.

My Baby Essential: Dreft Detergent

This content is sponsored by Dreft. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Since having Sonny, I’ve constantly received questions about what products I use on him or recommend for moms with newborns.  Like most other parents, I’m always doing research (thank you, Google) and asking others what they think of brands. Of course, every baby is different and one thing doesn’t  necessarily work for all. I’ve definitely had some experiences in which I’ve taken advice from parents that have sworn by a product, and it just didn’t work for Sonny the same way it did for their child.  He has very sensitive skin, so I always make sure to keep that in mind when buying baby goods. Now that Sonny’s about 10 months old, I’ve discovered a few key products that I can trust to work the best for him. When it comes to using something to gently wash his clothes, my go-to has been Dreft purtouch baby laundry detergent.
