Yep! Can you believe it? It’s that time of year again; Thanksgiving followed by Black Friday!! By the way, Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope you enjoy yourselves and eat lots of food. I will be working unfortunately, as my part-time job (Seasons 52) stays open, but I will be stalking all of your eating enviously.
I have worked near a major mall here in Maryland for five years now which has completely ruined Black Friday for me— or possibly made it better? Why? Because I do ALL my Black Friday shopping online, from the convenience on my couch, with a glass of wine in hand. Totally beats the hustle and bustle and long hours waiting in line, if I must say.
I have been doing some research, and below are some of my favorite baby finds featured on Amazon for Black Friday. Enjoy!
The Echo Dot
Ok I love my Echo Dot. This is a voice-controlled speaker that plays music, updates you on news, orders products off of Amazon for you, makes calls, sets times and alarms among more. I know you’re thinking…baby product? YES!!! In the early months of motherhood, I used this bad boy for White Noise. Yes the all saving, sleep inducing, white noise. And it was so convenient because I could either control it from my phone or just say “Alexa play white noise.” For Black Friday they are offering it for only $20.00. That is a great deal, about the price of what you would pay for a white noise machine.
2. JuJuBe B.F.F Multi- Functional Convertible Diaper Bag Coastal Collection
Looking to splurge a little on yourself? This JuJueBe diaper bag is only $71.99, ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT dollars off. No way. I had this same bag during my son’s first year of life; and I can’t add enough exclamation points to show how much I love this bag. For starters, it’s has a TON of compartments for organization without being overwhelmingly large. Also, it has convertible straps and can be used as a shoulder bag OR a book bag. It comes with a backward opening pocket and a changing pad. It is completely machine washable and has a Teflon Fabric protector. However, I only washed my bag ONCE in a year because it is equipped with crumb drains and the material can easily be wiped down with baby wipes! I LOVE THIS BAG. Also, the outside is cute, wait until to you see the gorgeous coral and palm trees lining! This is a must have, mom. You deserve it!
3. Disney Mr. Ray Ocean Lights Activity Gym
This activity mat is $20.00 off for Black Friday. Apart from it being super cute—who doesn’t love Disney?— its also extremely stimulating for your baby. It plays 20 minutes of music and has a light show. Your baby will be in Disney heaven, swimming with all of her favorite characters from Finding Nemo.

I loved baby wearing Lennox! I was gifted a few different baby carriers as baby shower gifts, and I also received a couple handmedowns from my amazing mom friends. I tried the Ring Sling (I never did understand how to use it), the Boba wrap, the Infantino Carry on Carrier, and lastly the Babybjorn which was my favorite by far. It was the only one that did not strain my back and it was so user friendly. It is equipped with a sturdy waist belt and padded shoulder pads. To this day I still (sometimes) squeeze my 30 pound toddler in it. It’s expensive, but it is definitely an investment, if you plan on baby carrying into the toddler years.
5. Maxi Cosi Pria 85 Max Convertible Car Seat
Lets face it, carseats— especially convertible carseats — are expensive. I had my eye on the Maxi Cosi Pria carseat for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, it is a great investment. You can use it until your child is 85 lbs. It can also be used for newborns 5 lbs. and higher if you decide to start with a convertible seat and do not mind taking your baby in and out of the car seat every time ( convertible car seats cannot be removed like an infant seat). Second, I love, love, love the soft cushiony fabric. It is literally a car seat dream for your baby. Ultimately, it provides more comfort for parents due to it’s compact design — allowing more room and a better fit in your car. If you’re looking for a convertible car seat, this carseat is $49.50 off today on Amazon!
Enjoy Black Friday, and good luck to those who are brave and still venture into the malls and stores. I will be thinking about you from behind my computer screen =).
