Brands created by moms with products designed specifically for moms- just like Mama & Little, are clearly right up my alley! What I look for in a mom-must-have product is something that is truly multi-functional, that I will use over and over again through out the stages of a growing baby, it must be durable and portable, come in great color and/or style options, and let's face it- be easy to clean. The best part is knowing that with my purchase I am supporting a working mom like myself who is able to do her dream job both in her business and as a mother.
Here are my picks for my top 8 favorite mompreneur products that I have personally used, loved, and totally recommend! Just in time for shopping for the perfect Mother's Day gifts.

Totesavvy- A genius organizer insert to turn your favorite purse or backpack into a diaper bag in the most organized way! I can always find what I need in an instant. I'm so happy to get to know Lauren and become fast friends. She's a super woman, do-it-all mama of 3, including adorable boy and girl twins.
Freshly Picked- The original leather baby moccasins- soft-soled shoes that are so cute! Enough said. Perfect shoe for the baby's first steps. Susan is THE mompreneur I looked up to while dreaming of an original business idea of my own. I met her in real life, I totally fan-girl'd, but was so humbled that she took the time to answer each of my questions. Bucket list, check.
Solly Baby- The most comfortable and stylish baby wrap you'll ever own! It's an accessory to complete your outfit. Elle is the sweetest person, I admire her creativity and vision, she's so kind to advise me in business and reach out to for mom advice.
Tubby Todd- The only soap we use on our sweet little guy! Smells amazing, all-natural, and so sudsy. Andrea and I go way back- I'm talking back to living around the corner from each other as newly-weds! She's truly an inspiration and I look up to her like, every day. Also, her sweet babies give me major baby fever.
Free Babes- The most adorable and high-quality bows for your little girl. All though I don't have a little girl I've been lucky enough to use some of Hillary's bows for our collection shoots and love them so much I wish I had a girl to put them on!
Puj- Katie and I live in the same city- Vancouver, WA. Small world! She's a total inspiration and I was so excited to meet her in real life and have her impart some of her mompreneur knowledge. We used her ingenius compact baby bath tub for our newborn Archer.
Little Wife Power House- From crib sheets, boppy covers, quilts, and super comfy swaddles, Jen, a mama of 3, has got you covered with the most stylish prints for your little one! She's such a positive person and she makes me wish I hadn't given up on learning how to sew in high school.

BabyList- The online baby registry that suits a new mom's real needs such as gifts not from stores like having meals provided and pet sitting along with being able to add items from any store all in one registry! From her own experience preparing for her baby, Natalie realized there wasn't a registry that suited her needs and decided to create a better online registry experience and so launched BabyList to be a useful resource for moms. Plus, it's free and has an app!
