Whitney Leigh Morris is a designer and new mother living on the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California with her husband, their two pups and new baby, West. Their cottage has a 362 square foot interior, and before their little one arrived last year Whitney and Adam built a very small, yet adorable nursery in their old closet which Whitney they like to call the “Bay.” Her favorite part of putting together the nursery was finding all the little, practical details to use in the space while her son was still an infant. Today Whitney is sharing her tips for creating a nursery in small space.
Before the fourth trimester is over and done I wanted to share the “survival essentials” that have gotten me through this beautiful and sleepy time. These are really focused on the first month and aren’t entirely comprehensive for the full three months of the fourth trimester. While in theory most of these items are for Hazel, they’ve really made my life easier and a little more fun – cause who doesn’t love dressing up their newborn baby even if all you’re doing is hanging around the house?! I hope this list is helpful and please leave any essentials I’m missing out on in the comments below.
Mothers deserve wellness just as much as anyone else, but it can be tricky to find the time when your hands are full. Since there’s never a true day off as a parent we’ve found that it’s essential to create small chunks of time throughout the week that provide time for self care. Today we’re rounding up a few of our go to tasks that help achieve balance and promote wellness. Our idea with sharing these tasks is not to overwhelm you and add more to your list, but to provide a breakaway task list to help you nurture YOU!
This season we shared the holiday traditions of some of our closest Solly Baby pals in our #SollyJolly series. I can’t tell you how much I loved seeing and hearing how our wraps fit into what makes this season special for you and your families. In fact, I was so inspired that I wanted to share one of our own.
