Momsense

As a new mom again, I’m learning about all sorts of new baby companies. Companies with products I had no idea that I needed. You NEED so much stuff as a Mom! If you are nursing or have nursed before, you understand me when I say that I worry if my baby is getting enough. With Saylor, I took measures to ensure I was (over) producing, because I didn’t want to starve my baby! This time around I understand my body a little bit better, but how are you ever sure that your baby is getting enough?

One of my friends told me about Momsense…this handy little gadget that lets you listen while your baby nurses, then sends you information to your smart phone on your nursing session. It records the baby swallowing, lets you know how long they nurse for, and the quantity consumed on each side. You hook it up to your phone and everything is kept track of on their app. It is so simple, and really helps put your mind at ease.

Momsense is on sale for a killer price right now, only $49. It is normally $89 so it really is a good deal. I highly recommend this product, especially if you are wanting to know how much your baby has nursed!

I feel like this blog took me 18 hours to write up and post…I am THAT tired. 3 weeks of only getting 5ish hours of sleep is finally catching up to me! I’m not (really) complaining haha, I just forgot what it was like to not get good sleep! I know it won’t last forever so I am really trying to appreciate those quiet, middle of the night moments with Remi and I. Thanks for all your love and support and patience, being a Mom to more than 1 is no joke! Happy weekend!

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…
