Morning ladies! Remember last week in my post when I said I kind of didn’t mind those middle of the night feedings and cuddle sessions? Well let me just fast forward to this week and scratch that lol. Last night was a long one with this little man and lets just say i’m looking forward to a few months from now when the sleep stretches get longer. 😉 I know it’s short lived so we’re just trying to go through these little rough patches and function as best we can in the newborn stage. A lot of you asked about baby gear so here is my final round up on our must haves!
and in the crib sheet, swaddle blanket, towel and changing pad cover department you can say i’m pretty much Aden and Anais obsessed!
A lot of you asked about my carseat and kicks from my post on Instagram last week. I love this one so much more than the one that I had with Ava and mainly because its lighter weight and so much easier to carry!
and some Lanolin cream is always a good idea! Esp the first week of breastfeeding…yikes!
As for bouncers we have tried a ton! We have two of these (one upstairs and one downstairs) and love it! We tried the super pricey mama’roo and ended up returning it because Ava like this one more. Not to mention I didn’t want to spend $200 on something that can only be used for a few months.
and lastly this is the co-sleeper we used with Ava and are using again this time around. It pushes right up next to our bed and hopefully will help make the transition into a crib a little easier down the road!
I hope this list was helpful for all my mamas and mamas to be! I didn’t include a carrier on the list because honestly I didn’t really love them with Ava. I have the Moby wrap and Baby Bjorn but felt like it was all just so heavy. To be honest once I washed one of the wraps I couldn’t figure out how to wrap it up again lol. I think I may need to give a carrier another try, especially now with a very active toddler on my hands. If you ladies have one you love PLEASE share! I always love hearing what works for you ladies too!
