Monthly Baby Photoshoot In A Box – Baby Booth Box Unboxing And Review

Let me tell you about Baby Booth Box

So if you know me at all you would’ve noticed I like taking pictures of my kids.

I always wanted to do the whole monthly photo shoot thing with my babies. When my first was born I didn’t even know about keepsake photos. I was just trying to keep myself awake and my child alive.

By the time my second was born I had seen countless internet moms do their own version of monthly keepsake photos and I wanted to do the same. I tried to keep things simple and purchased props and outfits.  At first I got through  without too many issues but when I got to month 4 and 5 I was running out of ideas and the cost of each photo shoot was starting to get expensive. I spent a lot of time planning out themes, looking for places to buy props and outfits and spending a lot of time and energy on the photo shoot itself.

I Just got Baby Booth Box. Every month they send out brand new themed and designed photo shoots for my baby. You get everything you need to set up the photo shoot and a FREE milestone blanket with your first box!!! They also put a gift in there for mom every month. you want to order, you can use my code BABY45 for 25% off. Or if you know someone having a baby, buy them a gift card or a subscription!

Introducing Baby Booth Box

This would make such a cute gift for any mom-to-be in your life! I found having photo shoot sessions with my babies to be a great way to bond and play together. Although at moments it can get a little frustrating, I loved having these moments with my little ones.

I absolutely loved my box. The props were of good quality and things that I can definitely reuse. It was so much fun opening my Baby Booth Box and finding all the cute goodies inside. The thing I liked most about this was the experience! Being able to set up, get my baby dressed up and taking photos (with the help of my other kids too). We had so much fun together and the final result is something I was cherish forever. Thank You Baby Booth Box!

Disclaimer: Yes, this Baby Booth Box was complimentary but all opinions are my own! Although subscribing myself is a little late (my baby is grown up) I am definitely thinking of purchasing this for a friend or family member who is expecting. 

Things Every First Time Mom Should Be Asking For At Their Baby Shower

If you’re reading this you’re probably expecting a little one soon (or looking for gift ideas for someone you know) so let me start off with CONGRATS! What a blessed time in your life, so exciting, so wonderful and so… so overwhelming.

I had no idea what to expect or prepare for my first child. What I should have been doing is Pinteresting the sh*t out of the subject of childbirth, baby showers, after baby care and so on… but I didn’t feel the need to. I was being gifted left and right with tons and tons of baby products from friends and family. Crib, Blankets, books, Stroller, bassinet, formula, diapers galore.

Being pregnant with my first child at 25 I was still fairly young. None of the girlfriends around me were pregnant or had a child. Well, there were a very few but they either lived really far or I just never spoke with them.  During my pregnancy and early marriage 99% of my girls were single, hot and partying in Vegas every weekend… I would live vicariously through their Facebook photos from my laptop eating my pint of ice cream on each passing weekend. I didn’t have many places to go or people to talk to about my pregnant life and what I should be expecting. The little advice I did get was from my mom… which is great advice and all but let me be real for a minute: She was pregnant back in 1986.

Things every first time mom should be asking for at their baby shower

There are hundreds, maybe thousands of obvious “Baby Shower Gift Idea” lists out there on the internet filled with the best products for your child… but what about you? Don’t forget, NEVER FORGET to take care of yourself first. You are an amazing person giving life to another human! You deserve the splurge, you need just a moment to focus on yourself and enjoy life.

Happy mom = Happy Baby & Family. Period.

The baby essentials such as crib and stroller will be gifted to you or at least pitched in for through your registry but here’s my small list of ways you can spoil yourself (and ask your baby shower attendees to spoil you with) for your baby shower. I wish I had done these!

  1. Get your nails done and a pedicure, opt for gel. You won’t get too many chances to get your nails done often so you’d want something that would last as long as possible.
  2. Get a haircut or trim or something really easy to style. I’ve found long hair to be easier to manage than short just because I could leave the house with a messy bun on a rushed morning.
  3. Ask for gift cards to your favorite retail stores and shop your heart out for half a day after baby. Note: Don’t walk into the store until 4 months or later after baby arrives because you’ll risk trying on those skinny jeans or bikini you’ve had your eyes on and cry when they don’t fit right… Uhm, Not like it’s happened to me, Just saying.
  4. Go on a short vacation ALONE. You don’t need your boyfriend or husband or whoever, save that for the baby moon. Don’t go too far, but get far away enough just for a night or two. Swim at the hotel pool or lay out at the beach with a book but do it alone and enjoy the silence while you can.
  5. Buy a really REALLY good facial regimen set. That pregnancy glow don’t last forever!
  6. Get a gift card for Micro blading or tattooing your brows and go get them done after baby arrives and you’re done breastfeeding. I still haven’t done this, I’ll update as soon as I do.
  7. Get a maternity friendly facial or prenatal massage.
  8. House cleaning service, I promise you will wish you had someone to clean your place within the first year of having a baby. Even if it’s only one visit, having your house cleaned will take a huge load off your stress level.
  9. Ask for lots of Target, Walmart or Amazon gift cards because there are a ton of little things that you will need with a new baby. Not at the exact moment the baby arrives but somewhere down the line. Ex: medicine, lotions, diapers, formula, bottles, detergent, dish soap, toys etc.
  10. This is one that I’ve bumped into on a few Facebook mom groups and it’s one of the best post baby finds for mom: Get a boob massage. You heard me: It’s called a breast engorgement relief massage. So when breast feeding (which I hope you try to do to the best of your ability) you will most likely find yourself with clogged ducts. Suuuuper uncomfortable, painful and one of the most dreaded parts of breast feeding. Try reading more about it on Google when you get the chance. The posts I’ve read stated the price was about $50 plus tip for an hour, but it relieved the breasts and unclogged every clogged duct. Amazing~

So what do you think? Would you consider asking your baby shower attendees to gift you any of these? Are you a second, third or fourth time mom who would have loved any of the above? Let me know! If you have any other suggestions please do add in the comment section below.
