From Bump To Baby: The First Years {Review + Giveaway}

Disclosure Review


Ever since I found out I was pregnant — and more so during this last trimester — I have been SO worried about everything. Am I going to be able to take care of an infant? Will I have everything I need to tackle any situation that arises? What do I do if she has a hard time feeding? 

All of these thoughts have been playing over and over in my head for a while now. I want to do everything in my control to have a healthy, safe, and happy baby. The First Years and the American Red Cross have really helped ease some of these anxieties.


The First Years American Red Cross On-The-Go First Aid Kit

Since fun-in-the-sun boo-boos, bumps and bruises can happen, The First Years and the American Red Cross have teamed up to offer an On-The-Go First Aid Kit made especially for babies & toddlers, perfect for summer adventures! With an easy-to-grip handle and a portable-sized clear case, accessing emergency supplies is easy for busy moms and dads. The On-The-Go First Aid Kit includes 54 essential items when a kiss from mom just won’t do the trick: bandages, antibiotic ointment, scissors, tweezers, instant cold pack, gauze pads, hand sanitizer, and more! Pack it in your beach bag, keep in the car or put it in your camping bag! MSRP: $19.99, available in Walmart stores nationwide.

I have been First Aid/CPR certified on a constant basis since I was 14 years old – or, for almost 10 years. Having the necessary supplies for taking care of any and all “boo boos” is extremely important to me. I have had the opportunity to review The First Years American Red Cross On-The-Go First Aid Kit — and I feel MUCH more at ease about being able to handle first aid situations.

The First Years GumDrop® Baby Bottle Starter Set

GumDrop® provides the latest design innovation in pacifiers, teethers, bottles and accessories to help comfort your new baby. Beginning with the newborn GumDrop Pacifier, the pacifier trusted by hospitals, the collection has expanded to include a complete line of feeding and soothing solutions for your little one. This summer, relax knowing GumDrop has you covered with its 10-piece starter set. The slim design of the GumDrop bottle makes it easy for baby to hold on to the bottle when mom and dad’s hands are already full. These BPA-free plastic baby bottles include leak-resistant travel caps, and 100% silicone nipples. This ten-piece set from The First Years includes three 4-oz bottles; two 8-oz bottles; two replacement nipples; two newborn pacifiers and a package of 40 pacifier wipes. MSRP: $17.99, available on and in select Walmart stores.

The first time I was introduced to the GumDrop line by The First Years was when my niece was little. The pacifiers were the ONLY type that she would take. Although my sweet little girl is not here yet, I feel SO MUCH BETTER that I have the GumDrop line of products to try out when she gets here. If she’s anything like her cousin — this line of products will most certainly come in handy!

The First Years Gripper Sipper Non-Insulated Spill-Proof Cup

Headaches from summertime sippy-cup spills can come on faster than sunburn!

    We keep a small first aid kit in our car because my oldest is forever getting splinters, stung, bitten, etc. Nature is not kind to her ;(

  2. Rebecca Orr says:

    Thankfully no, but it is always better to be safe than sorry. So we like to keep the essentials on hand.

  3. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    Fortunately we haven’t had any mishaps yet, but they are inevitable and this would come in handy.

  4. Kristi P says:

    We are constantly at the park and my daughter has had a couple of tumbles that they first aid kit would have been a huge help.

  5. Sue Hull says:

    The only thing I can think of is when my sister and my niece(5 yrs old) went to a b-day party for a friend and she tripped and fell. Her legs go so fast,her body can’t keep up with them. This is a perfect gift for my daughter b/c in 9 months she’s going to need a first aid kit of her own.Woo Hoo! Just call me grammy sue.Thank you 🙂

  6. Colleen Maurina says:

    We could have used the first aid kit for all the mosquito bites and bee stings this summer. Also, our little guy insists on going barefoot so we could have used it for all the cuts and scrapes on his little feet!

  7. Christina says:

    We always seem to have a need for our First Aid Kit. My 3 year old is a toe walker (she’s in PT) which makes her very clumsy so she is always falling and getting bumps and cuts.

  8. April Yedinak says:

    Heck, we just had an experience 2 days ago where it would have come in handy. We went to the park. My daughters were on the swings. My youngest got too rowdy and bashed her swing into my oldest. When they collided, the hook on the bottom of the chain that holds the swing seat on caught her wrist and gouged her. She had to wait until I could make it home with it hurting and bleeding the whole way.

  9. Patricia says:

    This is pretty neat. Yes our little one grabbed a hold of a pop can. She cut her finger on the sharp drinking ridge. We couldn’t find a band aid anywhere.

    We did end up buying a first aid kit for our van because we were at a picnic/birthday party where the pavement was really uneven all 3 of my kids fell and scrapped their knees as well as some other kids who were there.
