Winnie the Pooh Bedding Giveaway

When I was expecting my first child, I remember how excited I was to get the nursery ready. We painted the room, added trim and I spent hours looking for the right furniture and a cute theme for the crib bedding.

I couldn’t wait to find out if we were expecting a boy or a girl. When we discovered we would be having a boy, opted for light green and baby blue. This Winnie the Pooh Crib Set would have been perfect!

I’m happy to be giving away a Winnie the Pooh Crib Set to one lucky reader!

The classic Disney character is an adorable addition to a baby’s nursery. Disney’s Winnie the Pooh 3 Piece Crib Bedding set is part of the Hunny Hugs nursery collection. This set is the perfect complement to any babies bedroom. It includes a comforter with appliqué, a ruffle, and a fitted sheet. Be sure to check out the coordinating accessories to further enhance your baby’s nursery.

Baby Essentials: 8 Diaper Bag Must Haves

Being with a baby means being very organized, but keeping little ones clean, fed and entertained can be especially tricky when you’re on the move. A well-stocked diaper bag can help put your mind at ease, by ensuring that you have the tools you need to keep your baby comfortable and happy, wherever you are.

Here are some diaper bag must haves from Disney Baby, so you have one less thing to worry about on your way out the door.

8 Diaper Bag Must Haves

1. Diapers, of course!

This may seem like a no-brainer but it has happened to me before – you didn’t pack enough diapers. Make sure to keep plenty of diapers on hand. Bring one for every hour you’ll be out, plus one or two more – you just never know when you’ll need extras.

2. Baby Wipes

Baby wipes are a diaper bag essential. Keep a travel size pack of wipes or keep some in a plastic storage bag. Baby wipes have many uses – they keep baby clean after changing diapers, keep your hands clean and can be used for wiping down sticky fingers and faces, dirty surfaces and changing pads as well.

3. Changing Pad

Many diaper bags, including this Mickey Mouse one, come with changing pads inside. Changing pads make dealing with diapers a clean and comfortable experience wherever you are changing your baby. Yes I’ve changed baby many times in the back of my van or at the park! You can’t count on a changing table and even public ones, you still want to use our own changing pad.

4. Diaper Rash Cream 

Pack diaper rash cream in your diaper bag. You never know when diaper rash could develop, and you don’t want your baby to be uncomfortable when you’re nowhere near home. Diaper rash cream makes the diaper bag must haves list!

5. Extra clothing

No matter how prepared you are, accidents can happen – especially leaks or when baby spits ups. Having an extra change of clothing is necessary. Disney Baby has plenty of adorable Layette sets, available at all major retail locations – check out these super cute body suits for inspiration! They will fit neatly in your bag, so your baby can stay stylish, even on the run.

6. Snacks

If your baby is bottle feeding, keep some milk ready at hand in these cute Mickey bottles. If your baby is older, take some snacks in a reusable container and fill a learner cup with water. Don’t forget to pack a snack for yourself too!

7. Carry creature comforts

If you use a soother, be sure to pack some pacifiers to help keep your baby calm. My eldest sucked his thumb and my younger didn’t take to either! Blankets, like these Peek-a-Boo Pooh ones, are also great to have on hand. Use them as burp cloths, for mopping up messes or just to keep your little one cozy and warm.

8. Toys

Keep baby occupied while you’re out and about with board books, rattles and other soft toys. There were many times when a few toys were lifesavers when my kids were little – especially when waiting at the doctor’s office.

Disney Baby has a great selection of diaper bags to choose from, featuring all of your favourite characters: Mickey and Minnie, Winnie the Pooh – even Tinkerbell. You can also get special Huggies® diapers that feature adorable Disney designs!

Baby Time: 5 Tips for Bathing your Baby

Learning to bathe your baby can be a daunting. While you’re getting more comfortable with your baby, there’s a lot to juggle during bath time and of course you want to keep your little one safe. But as long you’re properly prepared, bath time can be a great bonding experience and a whole lot of fun!

Disney Baby has some great tips for bathing your baby, how to protect and pamper your little one in the tub, and some adorable products to help you to do it! From towels and toys to cleansers and creams, Disney Baby has you covered.

Here are 5 tips for bathing your baby:

1. Start small

Your baby is little and his or her bathtub should be too! When you start bathing a baby, it’s easier to do it in the sink, or using a small plastic tub. That way, you won’t have to kneel or lean awkwardly over the side of a big bath while keeping your baby upright. Some baby tubs, like this adorable Winnie the Pooh one, feature built-in toys, ensuring that bath time is fun for everyone!

2. Get some tub toys

For older babies, the bath can be a great place to learn and explore. Once your little one has graduated to a big tub, introduce them to some squirt toys, fun floaties or sponges. Disney Baby has a great selection of these, featuring characters like Nemo and Friends. Toys can keep your baby distracted and happy, helping make bath time a breeze.

3. Ditch the daily dips

Babies don’t need to bathe everyday – in fact, daily baths can dry out or damage your little one’s skin. It only takes two or three baths a week to ensure that baby stays squeaky-clean, as long as you stay vigilant about keeping face, hands and diaper area clean between washes. These Finding Nemo washcloths are the perfect way to keep baby fresh between bath times.

5 Tips on Bathing Your Baby

4. Lock in that moisture

If your baby does have dry skin, rub on a little moisturizing lotion, cream or oil post bath. There are plenty of products out there that both you and your baby can use!

5. Keep baby warm

Wet babies can become easily chilled, so throughout bath time it’s important to keep your little one warm. Ensure that bath water is around 37 degrees and that the air in the bathroom is comfortably warm as well. After the bath, wrap baby up in a soft, clean towel and give him a little snuggle! A Winnie the Pooh Bathtime Wrap keeps baby feeling cozy and looking cute.

5 Tips for Taking Photos of Your Baby

How many you are taking photos of your baby with every move they make? We all know our little ones fill our lives with magical moments, but those moments are not always captured because taking photos of your baby is an art!

Even though they are simply adorable, babies don’t always make the best photo subjects! Whether they are crawling away, turning their heads, or bursting into tears at just the wrong moment – somehow, those photograph-worthy moments slip away.

There are tips for taking photos of your baby – the right way! Disney Baby has 5 tips for taking photos of your baby, so you can capture those magical moments and enjoy them forever.

5 tips for taking photos of your baby

taking photos of your baby

1. Forget the frightening flash

Turn off the flash and open the shades. Not only can flash be startling to your baby, it creates a much harsher light and those dreaded red eyes in photos. For a better picture, open your windows and shades or move your baby outdoors to take some photos. Natural light will make it easier to capture your baby’s natural beauty, by ensuring you don’t lose the depth in your baby’s features. The photos also come out clearer and more beautiful.

2. Work those angles

Get down to your baby’s level. This allows you to look right into their eyes and gives them the power to look right back – they will appear much more engaged in the picture and they might even give you that elusive smile.

3. Don’t worry about perfect posing

Baby can’t smile every time! Don’t get too hung up on creating the perfect backdrop or coaxing baby into a classic pose. Taking pictures of your baby is about capturing who they are and they may not always be smiley, happy or perfectly poised. However, life and art is about capturing reality and when you look back later, you might appreciate having a few tantrum shots. I know I miss not having taken more random photos of the kids doing things like eating, crawling and yes, even crying!

4. Know when to stop

Babies get tired and fussy and it’s important not to drag the photography session on too long. If you know when to stop, taking pictures of your baby will be a lot more fun – for both of you. I find that having the camera ready for any moment that can arise may cause reason for an impromptu photo session!

5. Print & Store

Digital photos are great for sharing with family and friends, but it’s also lots of fun to print your photos and make the magical moments last. Disney Baby offers a great selection of Photo Albums and Picture Frames to help you store and display your pictures, so you can hang on to your memories for many years to come.
