Cool jackets to keep your pregnant belly warm.

7 Maternity Coats for Winter

I know you don’t want to buy a maternity coat. But if you’re planning to wear your favorite non-maternity winter coat through your pregnancy, beware. The fabric will stretch, the buttons will pop, the zipper will break. And then bye-bye favorite non-maternity winter coat. My advice? Find a reasonably priced (or dare we suggest, inexpensive?) maternity jacket that you’ll toss when the snow starts melting on the other side OR invest in some pregnancy friendly outerwear that works for babywearing or flatters your postpartum shape. Here’s 7 maternity coats that fit the bill. 1. This smart wool and faux fur number has discreet zippers to open secret hidden panels to accomodate for your belly. Zip them up post-pregnancy and voila! Regular coat once again. Seraphine Faux-Fur Collar Short Maternity Coat, $159 2. We know this knit poncho is a splurge, but if every compliment was a dollar, we promise it will be worth it’s weight. It’s just as beautiful with a big belly as it is with no belly at all. Maje Marcadet Jacquard-Knit Fringed Poncho $570 3. We’re not saying you’re going to throw your maternity coat away, but you might throw your maternity coat away. No judgement, and certainly no mom guilt when you can get a classic everyday coat on the cheap. Old Navy Maternity Funnel-Neck Coat, $69.94 4. We can’t get enough of this crisp, cardigan-style coat in a plaid that’s as basic as it is fashion-foward. It’s as perfect for the bump as it is for babywearing and beyond. Hatch Claude Jacket, $348 5. If you’re going to buy something for just one season, why not take a little fashion risk? Sure, you may be sick of those patches come Spring, but at this price, who cares? ASOS Maternity Bomber With Badges $45.10 6. There’s day you’ll just want to curl up in a big parka, but can’t justify the big parka pricetag. This H&M version will do just fine, with its adjustable drawstring below the bust and around the hem. H&M Mama Parka, $69.99 7. For those winter nights out on the town, or just those days you're feeling badass, this fringe maternity jacket will frame your belly in the most gorgeous way. Ella Moss Maternity Jacket, $129.97



These are the best bath time products you can get for under $20

These budget-friendly products really make a splash.

With babies and toddlers, bath time is about so much more than washing off: It's an opportunity for fun, sensory play and sweet bonding moments—with the added benefit of a cuddly, clean baby afterward.

Because bathing your baby is part business, part playtime, you're going to want products that can help with both of those activities. After countless bath times, here are the products that our editors think really make a splash. (Better yet, each item is less than $20!)

Comforts Bath Wash & Shampoo

Comforts Baby Wash & Shampoo

Made with oat extract, this bath wash and shampoo combo is designed to leave delicate skin cleansed and nourished. You and your baby will both appreciate the tear-free formula—so you can really focus on the bath time fun.

Munckin Soft Spot Bath Mat

Munchkin slip mat

When your little one is splish-splashing in the bath, help keep them from also sliding around with a soft, anti-slip bath mat. With strong suction cups to keep it in place and extra cushion to make bath time even more comfortable for your little one, this is an essential in our books.

Comforts Baby Lotion

Comforts baby lotion

For most of us, the bath time ritual continues when your baby is out of the tub when you want to moisturize their freshly cleaned skin. We look for lotions that are hypoallergenic, nourishing and designed to protect their skin.

The First Years Stack Up Cups

First year stack cups

When it comes to bath toys, nothing beats the classic set of stackable cups: Sort them by size, practice pouring water, pile them high—your little one will have fun with these every single bath time.

Comforts Baby Oil

For dry skin that needs a little extra TLC, our team loves Comforts' fast-absorbing baby oil aloe vera and vitamin E. Pro tip: When applied right after drying off your baby, the absorption is even more effective.

KidCo Bath Toy Organizer

KidCo Bath Organizer

Between bathing supplies, wash rags, toys and more, the tub sure can get crowded in a hurry. We like that this organizer gives your little one space to play and bathe while still keeping everything you need within reach.

Another great tip? Shopping the Comforts line on to find premium baby products for a fraction of competitors' prices—and follow along on social media to see product releases and news at @comfortsforbaby.

Sorry, you can’t meet our baby yet

Thank you for understanding. ❤️

In just over three weeks, we will become parents. From then on, our hearts will live outside of our bodies. We will finally understand what everyone tells you about bringing a child into the world.

Lately, the range of emotions and hormones has left me feeling nothing short of my new favorite mom word, "hormotional." I'm sure that's normal though, and something most people start to feel as everything suddenly becomes real.

Our bags are mostly packed, diaper bag ready, and birth plan in place. Now it's essentially a waiting game. We're finishing up our online childbirth classes which I must say are quite informational and sometimes entertaining. But in between the waiting and the classes, we've had to think about how we're going to handle life after baby's birth.


I don't mean thinking and planning about the lack of sleep, feeding schedule, or just the overall changes a new baby is going to bring. I'm talking about how we're going to handle excited family members and friends who've waited just as long as we have to meet our child. That sentence sounds so bizarre, right? How we're going to handle family and friends? That sentence shouldn't even have to exist.

When Chrissy Teigen announced her third pregnancy earlier this year we were so happy for her and now our hearts are with her as she is going through a pain that is unimaginable for many, but one that so many other mothers know.

Halfway through a high-risk pregnancy complicated by placenta issues, Teigen announced late Wednesday that she has suffered a pregnancy loss.

Our deepest condolences go out to Chrissy and her husband, John Legend (who has been by her side in the hospital for several days now).

In a social media post, Teigen explained she named this baby Jack.


"We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we've never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn't enough," she wrote.

She continued: "We never decide on our babies' names until the last possible moment after they're born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack. So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever."
