Favorite Online Stores:

Baby Center Store
This store offers a complete selection of baby products and will often have offers for free shipping on orders over $49.

Mom 4 Life
I love this store because not only are the products amazing, but they also offer free shipping on all orders no matter how big or small your order is. In addition to that 10% of their profits go to help a pregnancy center. This is definitely my “go-to” store when I’m looking for a baby product.

The Organized Parent
If you are like me and love checklists, binders and containers you’ll be as thrilled as I was to browse this online store. It has everything like me could ever need or want!

This online store offers daily deals for moms, babies and kids at severely discounted prices for higher end products.  Membership is free and you will receive a daily email informing you of the deals for that day.  Act quickly because products can go quickly!

Baby Steals
This website offers one product per day at a steal of a price.  New products are posted to the website daily at 9am MST. Sign up to receive their email notification for the steal of the day and again, act quickly because products will sell quickly.

Finding Childcare:

Mother’s Day Out
Many Methodist churches offer a drop-in daycare program at their church called either Mother’s Day Out or Mom’s Day Out. There are established hours for the program and is usually a schedule of activities for the children each day. I take both my girls to the Fort Collins daycare at the First United Methodist Church where they have learned to play with other kids their age, make art projects and learn to share.

Local Hospital
Ask the nurses or lactation consultants at your local hospital if there is a local service that will assist with recommending childcare. In Colorado there is an organization called Bright Beginnings which keeps an updated list of licensed daycare centers which they send parents.  Parents can request to receive information about centers with specific activities or care requirements.
