Out and About with Charlie


Ever since Charlie was born, I’ve been trying to get out of the house with him at least every other day. I knew I would be so tempted to hole up at home, so starting the habit early on has made all the difference for me! It has certainly been easier said than done though, especially while he’s so little and we aren’t quite on a consistent eating or napping schedule yet. I’m hoping we’ll get there soon, but in the meantime, one product has been so helpful for my peace of mind when I’m out with him: my Copper Pearl multi-use cover. It triples as a car seat cover, a nursing cover, and (for when Charlie is bigger) a shopping cart cover, and since I’m a bit of a minimalist when it comes to baby gear, I love having all three of these things in one!

Copper Pearl has so many cute cover patterns (we have this one, but this and this are two of my other favorites!). They also sell the cutest bandana bibs that I have my eye on, plus crib sheets, changing pad covers, and more. It has been so much fun diving into the world of baby gear brands this year, and they are definitely one of my favorite discoveries!

As you’ll see in my gift guide next week, this cover is at the top of my list when it comes to new mamas. Now through November 15, take 15% off of your Copper Pearl order with the code LISA15 !

Thank you so much to Copper Pearl for partnering with me on this post!
