So, as I mentioned when pregnant... this will never be a mommy blog. I try to keep it true to its roots! But, since it is about what I am loving, thinking about, obsessed with... some mom stuff might be sprinkled in here and there. My girl Avery is soon to be 6 months old! Can you believe it? I cannot!!!
Well, since I have been a mom for 6 months (almost)... I am long overdue to share my best baby bets! You know... those items I cannot live without! Here are my top 5 (to date).
1. Booginhead Pacifier Clips! (left) These are a MUST HAVE in my book. The first few weeks before we had these all I ever heard was "where in her pacifier". Then when she got a bit older and would spit it out... it would fall on our dirty floor and be covered in dog hair. Gross. Now, you should not let your child sleep with these, but I have one clipped to her outfit (daily), one clipped to her carseat, and one clipped to my diaper bag.
2. Miracle Blanket! (right) So if you are having a baby or have a baby... you know all about the swaddle! It is supposed to be the tighter the better. I don't know if it was because we were scared or just a little "slow to learn" but we had some challenges with the swaddle and the thing that saved us was the miracle blanket. It is easy to wrap and stays super tight. We tried other options too, but this was our favorite.
Other must haves: a good sling (newborns love this- mimics the womb. I have the K'tan and Petunia Picklebottom), vibrating chair, portable sleeper (aka Pack and Play), and a white noise machine. People swear by a swing- Avery hated it. I was glad I borrowed rather than bought one!
Okay.... that is all for now. I could talk endlessly about what we have, don't have, need, and don't need! Until next time....xoxo
