Read her tips and top essentials and then take that deep breath after trusting her parenting mantra, “everything is just a phase.” You’re ready for this, mama!

Dear mamas thinking about a second baby or already expecting #2 or in the early days and months of being mama to two babes, this post is for you.

Enter the beautiful Nicki Sebastian, new mama of two, friend to all, and editorial and family photographer oozing with talent and magic, who stepped in front of our camera to share her heartfelt and genuine experience of bringing home baby #2.

Favorite L.A. couple and good friends, Margaux and Max Wanger, live their lives with a focus on the best of things: each other and their two babes, world travel, and lazy Sundays. We are endlessly inspired by their art, their parenting mantras, and their good hearts. We sat down with Margaux and asked her all about finding home-away-from-home (in Italy, no less!) and embracing business and parenthood with gratitude! It’s a must-read.

Whitney Leigh Morris is a designer and new mother living on the Venice Beach Canals in Southern California with her husband, their two pups and new baby, West. Their cottage has a 362 square foot interior, and before their little one arrived last year Whitney and Adam built a very small, yet adorable nursery in their old closet which Whitney they like to call the “Bay.” Her favorite part of putting together the nursery was finding all the little, practical details to use in the space while her son was still an infant. Today Whitney is sharing her tips for creating a nursery in small space.

This season we will be sharing the holiday traditions of some of our closest Solly Baby pals in our #sollyjolly series! Meet Kate Arends – a wife and new mother living in St. Paul as a creative and multichannel marketing consultant. Her blog, “Wit & Delight”, was derived from Kate’s experience of discovering and developing her own personal style – “Wit” is a sharpness and quirkiness to the process, while “Delight” is finding the joy and the humor throughout each step. Today she’s giving a little insight to what makes this season special for her and her family. Make sure to tag your photos with the #sollyjolly hashtag to share your traditions and what this holiday means to you!
