FIRST 3 MONTHS

Now that W is moving on out of the infant stage and quickly into the sitting up, crawling, walking, running away from mom stage, I wanted to share a few of my favorite things that got us through those early days.

1 Baby Gap onesies: These little guys are the bomb dot com. They are super soft and so easy for diaper changes. If you have a little wiggler like me, you will want these because they button up so quickly.

2 Mustela bath wash: A sweet friend gave me this as a gift when I found out I was pregnant. What was an even better gift is that she told me she had just found out she was pregnant with numero two. Now her little angel baby princess is W’s best buddy. This bath soap smells delightful and you do not have to use much  to get the job done. I only use it every other bath because sometimes just splashing around in plain water is good enough for my boy’s skin.

3 Motorola baby monitor: Love this baby monitor. It is not cheap but, to me, it is totally worth it. It moves all around and shows the image in color during the day and black and white at night. When I just went searching for the link I think I saw also zooms!??! Clearly I need to go back and read the manual. **This is our second monitor because my baby daddy dropped the first one in a bowl of soup. How in the world did that happen??!? Well if you ask him, it is because I put it too close to the soup bowl and it was bound to happen. Therefore, this new one was Dad’s christmas gift.

4 Kissy Kissy:  Love anything Kissy Kissy. It is just the softest baby clothing ever. Sweetest little baby is a great website were you can sign up for their mailing list and receive amazing discounts on Kissy Kissy and other brands. Invest.

5 Yogi Nursing Tea: I like drinking this tea just to ensure my supply is good for the little guy. He sure does like to eat (despite being in the 5th percentile for weight. sigh.) so I drink this in the evenings. Who knows if it actually does anything but I like to think it does. Mind of matter.

6 Bravado for Target nursing bras: Such a great nursing bra that is super comfortable and super affordable.

7 Donavon Frankenreiter CD: The little bug was quite a fussy little dude. He was such a bundle of joy but often sometimes he just cried. This is such a hard thing for new mommies and babies but we powered through it and are coming out on top. Whenever he got super fussy we turned on the hair dryer (WEIRD I know, but it worked for him) then when he had calmed a bit we did some mother-son dancing to this soundtrack. It was a favorite of mine in highschool and I just rediscovered and my son seems to like it to. We have come to throughly enjoy our dancing and each time he goes to sleep (whether it be a nap or for the night) we listen to at least two songs off of this. Thank you Donavon for not only helping with our fussy little angel, but for the wonderful mother-son dancing memories.
