Your newborn session might be cancelled due to Covid, but that doesn’t mean you have to go without memorable photos of your fresh and squishy baby. Whether you have a “fancy” camera or just a smartphone, you can capture sweet + special moments with your growing family on your own—and we’ve tapped our beautiful friend Alexandria Smith, a mom of three (with her fourth on the way!) and photographer in Central California to share her best tips. (Alex is also creator of Nurturing Home, a seasonal guide to cultivating abundance, including rhythms + routines, recipes and more. It’s so beautiful!) Ready to document those rolly wrists and tiny toes? Let’s get started…

While this is a time of letting go of what we thought our “fourth trimesters” after baby would be, there is still so much space to create something special and possibly even more beautiful and healing than you had planned. The key? Trust that this postpartum experience is exactly the experience you were always meant to have and that it will be for your ultimate good. Whether you are one week postpartum or twenty-one, jump in and find areas where you could incorporate some care.

Thinking of you, pregnant and postpartum mamas.💛 Hope this helps manage your mind a little bit through this time. Your brain may want to tell you that everything is an emergency, but our brains just trip out on the unknown. Our most productive action comes from feeling empowered and just focusing on taking the next right step.

We’ve long-admired Sydney Liann for her down-to-earth blog (she was the first blogger we worked with back in 2011!), her worth-following IG feed, and her enviable style (so much that we hired her to style our Summer Style shoot a few seasons ago). We’ve loved watching her family grow as she welcomed her third baby this fall and since she’s a mama in the thick of it right during the busiest time of the year, we asked her to share her (realistic! practical!) tips for keeping the holidays feeling more festive than frazzled.

Whether you’re about to have a baby and want to have an answer ready when someone inevitably asks, “What can I do to help?” or you’re looking ways to pitch in after one of your gal pals welcomes a new addition, you’ve come to the right place. We asked our Solly community to share the nicest/most helpful/most memorable things someone did for them postpartum and have compiled some of the highlights below. Feel free to add any other ideas in the comments, too—most of us will agree, the more ways to help, the better!

Hi mamas + papas,

I’m absolutely over the moon to share that Solly Baby Crib Sheets have arrived! Over the last 8 years, you have shared stories of your little ones sleeping so soundly (and being their cutest, coziest selves) while in the Solly Baby Wrap. I just knew there had to be a way to recreate this experience for baby, giving them all the zzz’s without being wrapped to your chest all night long (please tell us we’re not the only ones that have totally had to do this!).
