First Week Favorites

Holy cow I can’t believe it has already been a week since our sweet Remi has joined our family. The days and nights have sort of blurred together, and I’m starting to remember what it is like to function on little to no sleep. But I wouldn’t change her being here for anything! I am so grateful to have had a smooth labor and delivery, and the recovery has been fairly good considering what my body just went through, haha. I’m always hesitant to say I’m doing good, because “good” is a broad term and no one really wants to hear what is going on! One day soon I will sit down and write out my birth story. Until then, here are a few products I have enjoyed using this past week.

  

 Nursing tank and boob ease nipple balm from Bamboobies. Life savers.

 Swaddle blanket from Copper Pearl. It’s the perfect size, and stretchy so it keeps Remi tight and cozy!

 Tranquilo Mat…so amazing! It vibrates and soothes Remi and it is just really cool and handy. It was on Shark Tank…definitely check them out.

 This MomSense breastfeeding meter. It really is helpful and so cool. It listens to your baby swallow and can let you know how much your baby is eating. It’s been especially comforting to use in the beginning, when you are worried about if your baby is getting enough!

Also, a nursing reminder bracelet from NursElet. It has proven to be helpful in reminding me which side I last nursed on, especially in the middle of the night when I don’t know what is going on, haha!

MAJOR points go to Parasol Co for their amazing diapers and wipes. Their wipes are slightly larger than most, and don’t tear! I love them. We haven’t had any blowouts in the diapers and they come in the cutest prints.

Let me know some of your favorite products that you found yourself using or your newborns! Talk soon…

First Time Mom?

Being a first time mom, I am constantly scouring the Internet and Instagram for the latest and greatest. I love baby gear, and finding new products or accessories that I can’t live without. (Sorry, Troy!) I am NOT an expert, just a lady who has tried lots of different things and is here to share what you absolutely NEED! I can’t possibly cover everything in one post, so this will be a start.

–Nursing? You need nipple cream and nursing pads (I preferred the reusable kind). Also, a good nursing cover! BONUS, this one can be used 3 ways!

Fischer-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper. This got so much use when Saylor was little! It is lightweight, easy to move around, and has the perfect incline position.

— A Sling Bathtub! We had one like THIS ONE and used it for almost a full year. The sling is perfect for when they are little, then the actual bath part is great for when they are learning to sit up/first learn to sit up on their own.

— A TRAVEL SYSTEM! This is an absolute must. Newborns sleep so much, and who wants to transfer a sleeping baby in and out of their car seat every time you are going somewhere? No one! Insert car seat in stroller and you are good to go. There are so many options in this field that it honestly could be its own blog post. but THIS ONE from Britax is always a top pick.

— Swaddle blankets. Lots and lots of them! I particularly loved the Aden and Anais brand, but to each their own! I used them for everything. Stroller blankets, burp rags, nursing covers…they will get lots of use!

That concludes my list for today, as Saylor is waking up from her nap. Trust me, we only scratched the surface! What are some of your must haves?
