I've been sharing various exclusive promos on Instagram, on my deals Facebook page, and in my group for NYC moms of 2018 babies. I thought I'd compile them all here. I will be updating this post when I get access to new promos. If a code isn't working for you or is expired, please click here to email me.
This post is easy to shop -- you can click through the hyperlinks and images to purchase the items featured. The post includes affiliate links and codes, which means I may make a commission when you click through or use my code to make a purchase. I've also received some of the product for editorial consideration. Please see the Disclosure page for additional information.
Baby Buddha Portable Breast Pump. This pump is tiny, portable, compatible with most any parts (including Spectra, Medela and Freemie), and for me yields more than my Spectra S1, PISA, or Freemie Liberty in half the time. Total game changer, it's actually increased my supply because it's so effective. I bought mine shortly after launch and it sold out the following day. Click here to read my full review and find a 20% discount code.
The Baby Buddha is compatible with parts from all major brands. If you want to use it with Medela parts, you will need to buy this item. If you want to use it with Spectra parts, you will need to buy this item. More details on these hacks and images here.
Baby Formula and Food (Organic European). I order from either of the below two vendors, depending on how much I need and how quickly. Look out for my upcoming European formula guide!!
Bottles and Burps sells European baby formulas, cereals (oatmeal/rice) and purées with fast and free priority delivery of 1-2 days. Same day delivery in Manhattan and Brooklyn. I’ve price 10% off when you click here or use code BURPS-PNMMOD (cannot be combined with bulk pricing). This is where I am ordering from going forward as their pricing is great and they also offer really helpful translations and customer service. This is the formula that I use.
This U.S.-based shop is reliable and only slightly more expensive than Bottles and Burps. I have ordered from them receive my delivery the next business day. I currently use this formula (PRE stage is for 0-6 months). I’d shop here if Bottles and Burps was out of stock.

Fitness and Health
obé fitness app: Use code MIRIAM30 for 30% off your first month (**you need to set up your account on the obe website with code MIRIAM30 and the code will automatically stack with the 7 day free trial offered to everyone, so your first month after the trial will be discounted, then you can switch to the app). I researched a bunch of workout apps and decided on obé because they offer both live and on-demand workouts, there is amazing variety of workout types and instructors, workouts are 28 minutes so you can squeeze one in or do two, there are post-natal workouts, and the workouts are all designed / filmed specifically for the app / at home (vs. a recording of a live class as an after thought) . My favorite instructors so far are Adam and Megan.

Ready, Set, Food! $25 off ANY subscription when you click here and use code BESTBABY25 (or 50% off your first month when you click here and use code BEST50 on a month to month subscription, but BESTBABY25 is a better value). Three recent clinical trials have shown that early and sustained allergen exposure for approximately six months can reduce the risk of infants developing food allergies by up to 80%. Since young babies are not great eaters, it can be very hard to give babies enough exposure to prevent allergies. Ready, Set, Food! makes early and sustained food allergen introduction easy because it’s a powder that dissolves easily in breastmilk, formula, or food. I've already started my daughter on it. Be sure to check out my FAQ with their chief allergist, Dr. Katie Marks-Cogan.
Ride Safer Vest (car seat alternative for age 4+): 10% off when you click here and use code BEST10. We just used this vest for my four year old for our trip to Florida and the Bahamas. It was an amazing space saver. We also saved time by putting the vest on him before getting into the car or for example while our luggage was being loaded into a car. I plan to use it in taxis and ride shares (it would fit in my son’s school backpack) and for the grandparents’ car. We got stopped by so many people in the airport who wished they had one (note that it’s not for use on the plane)! This product is also available on Amazon (click here to check out reviews, but the discount only applies through the link above).
ro•sham•bo baby to kid (sunglasses): 10% off when you click here or use code BEST at checkout (if you use this link the discount should apply automatically at checkout). These sunglasses are adorable, flexible and provide great sun protection.
