GIVEAWAY!

7 a.m. Enfant

One of the best things about NYC is that you are able to travel on foot year-round. But with that year-round weather comes inclement weather. AKA ice cold weather. And with this cold comes ones of the biggest challenges you’ll face as a parent: the dressing of the coat. The wrist-band baby coats always seem to be one tiny pinky too small, and your little one -- and you -- begin to sweat from all the wrestling before you even walk out the door.

7 a.m. Enfant products have quickly become one of our top winter must-haves (saving graces) due to that fact. And this week they are giving away a pair of Warmmuffs for you (yay!) and one of their latest product additions for your latest addition: the micro-fleece lined Car-Seat Cocoon CSC, which simply slips over the car seat with a snug elasticized contour to keep baby warm while traveling. Made to fit all infant car seats, the Cocoon will protect against harsh weather and saves you from battling with that puffy baby coat and getting it caught in that very important car seat buckle. The zip-on top makes it easy to unzip once the car is nice and toasty (or indoors) and quickly zip again when you’re ready to attach your newborn’s car seat on the stroller again. And the Warmmuffs? Well, we didn’t know we needed them until we had them. No searching in your bag or pockets for that one glove, no dropping mittens on the street. The Warmmuffs attach nicely to your stroller handles and stay there until spring arrives.

To enter to win these two winter must-haves in your color of choice (based on availability), sign up for the new Well Rounded NY newsletter, Like 7 a.m Enfant on Facebook, follow 7 a.m. Enfant on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest and leave a comment below.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.

Rarely is a woman more concerned with what her body needs than when she's pregnant. We start to question and research everything, right? From swearing off turkey sandwiches to diving down the rabbit hole of prenatal supplements that make up what we lack, the stress of overthinking is real, mama.

One of the main reasons we launched the Motherly Shop is to help take some of that stress away. We've tracked down the best brands and products developed by people (and in many cases, women!) that truly work to serve the needs of real mamas, especially throughout the overwhelming transition into motherhood.

That's why we knew we had to introduce mamas-to-be to the science-backed and expertly-formulated protein collagen for pregnancy from Needed. And as one of our bestsellers, it's clear you've been looking for it, too.

Motherly editors’ 7 favorite hacks for organizing their diaper bags

Make frantically fishing around for a diaper a thing of the past!

As any parent knows, the term "diaper bag" only scratches the surface. In reality, this catchall holds so much more: a change of clothes, bottles, snacks, wipes and probably about a dozen more essential items.

Which makes finding the exact item you need, when you need it (read: A diaper when you're in public with a blowout on your hands) kind of tricky.

That's why organization is the name of the game when it comes to outings with your littles. We pooled the Motherly team of editors to learn some favorite hacks for organizing diaper bags. Here are our top tips.

1. Divide and conquer with small bags

Here's a tip we heard more than a few times: Use smaller storage bags to organize your stuff. Not only is this helpful for keeping related items together, but it can also help keep things from floating around in the expanse of the larger diaper bag. These bags don't have to be anything particularly fancy: an unused toiletry bag, pencil case or even plastic baggies will work.

2. Have an emergency changing kit

When you're dealing with a diaper blowout situation, it's not the time to go searching for a pack of wipes. Instead, assemble an emergency changing kit ahead of time by bundling a change of baby clothes, a fresh diaper, plenty of wipes and hand sanitizer in a bag you can quickly grab. We're partial to pop-top wipes that don't dry out or get dirty inside the diaper bag.

3. Simplify bottle prep

Organization isn't just being able to find what you need, but also having what you need. For formula-feeding on the go, keep an extra bottle with the formula you need measured out along with water to mix it up. You never know when your outing will take longer than expected—especially with a baby in the mix!

4. Get resealable snacks

When getting out with toddlers and older kids, snacks are the key to success. Still, it isn't fun to constantly dig crumbs out of the bottom of your diaper bag. Our editors love pouches with resealable caps and snacks that come in their own sealable containers. Travel-sized snacks like freeze-dried fruit crisps or meal-ready pouches can get an unfair reputation for being more expensive, but that isn't the case with the budget-friendly Comforts line.

5. Keep a carabiner on your keychain

You'll think a lot about what your child needs for an outing, but you can't forget this must-have: your keys. Add a carabiner to your keychain so you can hook them onto a loop inside your diaper bag. Trust us when we say it's a much better option than dumping out the bag's contents on your front step to find your house key!

6. Bundle your essentials

If your diaper bag doubles as your purse (and we bet it does) you're going to want easy access to your essentials, too. Dedicate a smaller storage bag of your diaper bag to items like your phone, wallet and lip balm. Then, when you're ready to transfer your items to a real purse, you don't have to look for them individually.

7. Keep wipes in an outer compartment

Baby wipes aren't just for diaper changes: They're also great for cleaning up messy faces, wiping off smudges, touching up your makeup and more. Since you'll be reaching for them time and time again, keep a container of sensitive baby wipes in an easily accessible outer compartment of your bag.
