Before we dive into the topic of baby bows…
Have you ever had your wisdom teeth taken out?
I just had mine taken out on Monday and even though the pain is minimal, I look like a blow-fish. Like, the left side of my face has never been so swollen and bruised in its life. It’s really NOT a good look.
The funny part is that I have to take the girls to school in the mornings since Chris is already at work. So, here I am walking into a place full of children with a gnarly bruise/swelling on the left side of my face and some minimal swelling on the right.
However, the kid’s don’t really notice… but the teachers do, ha! They are very sweet and are trying to help me with the girls during this time.
I’ve been living off of yogurt, applesauce, avocado, eggs, mashed potatoes, and ice cream. That’s the only food I’ve had since Monday. Does anyone have any suggestions on other foods to eat without really needing to chew? I’m getting so bored.
Also, I’ve also been using my ice roller religiously.
You can read about those benefits here.
However, on a high note…
I just received my first official paycheck from blogging. I can’t believe it’s actually happening and the hard work is paying off!
(Doing a little dance right now…)

So, while I am at home recovering, I wanted to talk about my favorite baby bows for my little girls.
Have you ever struggled with finding the perfect baby bows?
I feel like there are so many bows out there that either don’t fit or leave a huge red mark on my baby’s head. No thanks.
When Luna was born, she came out with a head circumference of 94 % and I didn’t know that until she was a few months old.
Baby girl had a big head…
Then, at around 3 months old, it grew to over 99%! At that point, a ton of bows that Rosie wore when she was Luna’s age wouldn’t fit Luna. They would leave marks on her head or they wouldn’t even fit at all.
One day, a friend gave us some adorable bows that were stretchy, comfortable and didn’t leave the marks. That’s when I started looking at some new bows.

Nowadays, Luna’s head looks like it is more proportionate to her body (stop growing so fast please) however, we constantly use the bows!
Ok, so I just recently bought these Ncmama nylon headbands because we had a photoshoot in Williamsburg over the weekend. Uh… I couldn’t even decide which one to use. **I am so sad that these ones are no longer there. However, I found other super cute ones!
They are just so adorable.
What made me even happier was that these bows fit Luna’s head and Rosie’s head, so Rosie proudly wore one during the photoshoot (and got mad when I took it off).
These baby bows are stretchy, comfortable, super cute, and I am kind of obsessed with the velvet pink one at the bottom.
Also, it looks like they used to have a smaller nylon elastic band but made the switch to a larger size. Thank goodness for that!
These MiiYoung bows from Amazon are very similar to the Ncmama ones. They have the same nylon headband which makes it feel very soft and comfortable. They also have quite the selection!
The bows come in 10 different styles and colors and they adjust to the baby’s head as it grows.
This particular package comes with the following:
Pink Velvet Knot Bow
Butterfly Denim Bow
Classic Black Striped Sailor Bow
Mini Flower Bow
Dainty Suede Bow
Floral Patterned Bow
Pink Leather Bow
Solid Pink Bow
I think velvet bows are the sweetest little thing on a baby girl’s head. When I stumbled across these on Amazon, I knew I had to share them with you!
This pack comes with 10 pieces and they are all alligator clips.
Baby Bling is the bow Luna is wearing in the first picture. She wore her pink and purple baby bling bows so much.
I love the feel of these bows, I love the styles of these bows, and colors of these bows.
These might just be my favorite bows ever.
I love the colors and the fact that they are super soft (velvet).
Is it weird that I want to wear one?
CollectiveCreationsC has the most adorable bows. She has some festive ones for the holidays (such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter) as well as a Spring Collection and Rosie’s favorite, a Minnie Mouse bow!
Brittany is the creator of BrittsBowsStore on Etsy. I love the story about how she started her shop.
Long story short, when she was pregnant with baby #3 she was looking for something she could do on her own, all by herself and was searching for a way to have her own identity besides being a mom.
This is how she fell into making bows!
She takes care of her kids during the day and is in full on bow making mode at night.
Her bows are so cute… just take a look!
BowCoCollection is most definitely a new favorite of mine. Veronika opened up her shop in 2015 and she runs it out of her home in Sydney, Australia.
As mentioned in her bio, she states,
“Our brand is all about classic, stylish, quality hair accessories made for babies through to no matter how old you are!”
All of the bows are designed and handmade by Veronika.
AniBabee is run by Kate Walz, a stay at home mom who hand-makes all of her own gorgeous bows. They have different sizes you can choose from and so many adorable selections.
Like, how cute is this Easter bow?
I am back at it again with Amazon.
Papiarts is another one of those companies that carries a sweet variety of bows.
Each bow is hand-sewn, pressed and folded and attached to a stretchy nylon band. As I said before, the nylon band is good for growing babies and leaves no marks on the babies heads.
They are also soft and do not slip on the baby’s head.
WARNING: Amazon carries a ton of adorable bows so once you start… you may not be able to stop!
This particular package comes with the following:
Fall Floral Bow
White Flower Bow
Animal-Friendly Synthetic Leather Bow
Hand-Tied Velvet Bow
White Dots Pinwheel Campfires Bow
Velvet Petal Bow
Mini Tuxedo Bow
