Are you a Type-A mom? Some characteristics of Type A's include being highly organized, impatient, proactive, ambitious and concerned with time management. We don't have time to dig for our keys, figure out whose cup is whose, or wonder where the binky fell. We need smart baby gear that is as practical, organized and time-saving as we are. If this sounds like you, we've rounded up some of our favorite products for Type A moms.
Here are some of our favorite baby-gear picks to keep you organized, on-time and on-the-go with kids in tow.
Petunia Pickle Bottom Intermix
Type A moms, rejoice! Petunia Pickle Bottom has created a new diaper bag...no, a whole system that pairs practical organization with chic gender-neutral style. Meet the Intermix. Start with the Intermix Backpack in two black and white color schemes. Then choose your inserts. I love the Grid Caddy that can work as a diaper caddy on your changing table, a tray on your stroller or an organizer holder in your diaper bag. Then add in the Cool, Midi or Mini Pixel zippered totes to hold snacks or clothes or toys, mom stuff or keep sibling gear separate. I love that you can choose the size and function that fits your needs best.
The totes are perfectly-sized and ideal to use with the Intermix system or on their own. Put them all in the diaper bag and then pull out which ones you need - the snack bag at the park, the change of clothes for when you leave the littles with grandma for an hour, the toy bag when that doctor appointment is taking longer than expected. I wish they had this when my kids were little! Love how this PPB system makes motherhood look chic, versatile and organized!
Savor Keepsake Baby Boxes
These keepsakes boxes from Savor are ideal for keeping baby memories and mementos neatly organized. A cute yet sturdy fabric box contains drawers, vertical files and mini envelopes to hold everything from the coming-home outfit to that first lost tooth. Illustrated labels and tags help you make a place for everything - and keep everything in its designated spot. I love that it's cute enough to keep out in the nursery (which will ensure you store those keepsakes right away) and helps you limit how much you keep. They also have school-year boxes to keep all those crafts and spelling bee awards consolidated.
There are things I didn't know I needed as a first time mom. Like PJs that did not have twenty million buttons to match up (!!) at 2AM after a middle-of-the-night diaper blow out. Really - who designed those? Which is why the Joovy Silinoogies with Nightglow is SO ingenious. If your kid is a paci kid, these are a must-have. Get this, mamas - the pacifier GLOWS in the dark. No more 1 AM pat-downs of the crib trying to find the binky. No more under-the-crib search-fest looking for suckie. The Silinoogie has gentle glow-in-the-dark powers that mean you'll find binky, and get back to bed faster.
Once you have more than one kid, keeping everyone's stuff straight because a full-time job. A job made much easier with labels like these form Inchbug. No more wondering whose sippy-cup is whose or which bin is for blocks. Labels are a Type-A mom's best friend for staying organized. Inchbug has labels for just about everything. Whether you need to label bottles or diaper bags, sweatshirts, snack bags or storage bins, labels make life easier.
