Look what the Stork brought!

The mailman and I have become friends. I eagerly await his arrival everyday, and so does Carina - she enjoys opening boxes as much as I do! Last week we received our Stork Stack.

What is Stork Stack?
Stork Stack is a monthly subscription service that delivers $50+ of hand-picked products for baby and Momma right to your doorstep, for only $28 per month. Stacks evolve with your child's age from 3rd trimester to 3rd birthday.

Shower stack
What makes Stork Stack different from similar services? 
Your stack comes with 5 full-size age-appropriate products, rather than samples - I don't know about you, but samples somehow always end up tossed aside and lost or unused in our home. Also? It's not just for your little one. There is always something included in each stack for Momma! Stork Stack offers a Shower Stack, too, which makes a most perfect gift for any Mom-to-be (look! A WubbaNub and an aden & anais swaddle blanket!) Just $40, it ships the same day you order it.

A little more about Stork Stack:
Stork Stack is committed to delivering the highest-quality products for both baby and mom, making it easy for you to incorporate the best new brands into your busy life. We also deliver on-demand Baby Shower Stacks, the perfect gift for an expecting mom. Our goal is to help our members experience new brands and products, and have access to exclusive deals and offers from companies we know they'll love. Join or gift a subscription to discover serendipity shipped monthly.

We received the 18 Month stack. Check out what's in it!
Boon snack container, BabyLegs, Banz sun hat, Earth Mama Angel Baby Happy Mama Spray & Body Butter
1. Boon Munch Snack Container
We've been having issue with Carina shoving anything and everything - really, you name it...donut crumbs, puzzle pieces, banana slices (eww) into her other snack catchers, so this bad boy was a much welcomed surprise. You can close the lid which makes it easy to keep snacks in, and prevent a Carina-led infiltration. BPA and PVC free, and dishwasher safe (woot!)

2. Babylegs Leg Warmers
I think by now you know of my love for BabyLegs. Even in the summer, these are such a practical and essential {for us} accessory. This pair is white with ruffly ends, green and pink stripes, and cute hearts and flowers. Made of organic cotton, they are machine washable and tumble dry.

3. Baby BanZ Reversible Bucket Hat
This reversible sun hat is adorable and functional. It has a wide brim which shields Carina's face from the sun entirely. The other side (not shown) is solid pink. It has a UPF rating of 50+ and is machine washable, and line dry. In addition to being reversible, it is also adjustable! Part of the brim contains velcro for a tighter (or looser) fit.

4. Earth Mama Angel Baby Happy Mama Spray
I'll admit that I am often a skeptic when it comes to aromatherapy, but I have to say that this spray has been awesome. Made of pure essential oils and flower essences, it smells great and has helped ameliorate Carina's giant diaper change tantrums. I spray it on and around our changing pad every other day or so, and she has not freaked out nearly as much come changing time.  

5. Earth Mama Angel Baby Earth Mama Body Butter
A product just for the Mommas, woohoo! I've been rubbing this on my big ol' pregnant hugeness since I received it and my skin feels soft and hydrated. In addition to relieving dry, itchy skin on those expanding areas during pregnancy, it also keeps skin hydrated and supple afterwards! It contains natural moisturizers including organic borage oil, sunflower seed oil, shea butter and red raspberry seed oil. Compared to the belly oil I used to use, the body butter has no greasy or sticky residue which means I can happily futz around on my iPhone after applying it in bed without smearing the screen (haha first world problems!) ;)

In all, we are loving our stack! And I did my due diligence and checked out the retail prices on the items and they are well over $50, even when I could find the items on sale. The hat itself is worth almost the cost of the entire stack!
Hat, snack container, and BabyLegs in action!
Why BabyLegs are sometimes a must with this little one ;)
Stork Stack is also unique in its mission to do good. They donate to two amazing charities: Operation Showers of Appreciation (military families separated by deployment) and Baby Buggy (families in need). For every 3 month subscription purchased they give 1 stack, 2 stacks for ever 6 month subscription and 3 stacks for every 12 month subscription!

I was not compensated for this review. I received the item(s) free of charge for reviewing purposes. All opinions are honest, and my own.
