Hey there, Monday! How was the time change transition for everyone?
I was actually worried and thought it would throw Cam's sleeping off, but it hasn't seemed to affect him much and he's continued to sleep through the night like a champ!!
Today I wanted to feature my favorite baby items that have made my life so much easier these past (almost) 8 weeks! I still plan on highlighting some separately and going into more detail about them, but I wanted to have a post with all of them in one place too. Here's some more specifics about the ones you might have questions about--
I got the Ergo 360 baby carrier for when he is a little bit older, but the Solly Baby Wrap is by far the best one to start with when baby is really little. It's lightweight, soft, and comes in really cute colors. We watched a YouTube tutorial on how to use it which was really helpful! It's really easy to put on once you get the hang of it. As for swaddle blankets...Cam loves to be swaddled-some babies do and some don't. We like to use the swaddle blankets during the day, and at night we use the zipper sleep sacks because they are quicker and easier. The Boon Lawn drying rack was a gift we got that I was unsure if we really "needed", but I'm SO glad we kept it. It's nice to have a place for all our bottles and my pump parts to call home, plus it looks cute so you can leave it out all the time.
**Two other random tips: Believe it or not, we have yet to use our changing table in his nursery! We've found it's much easier changing him on the floor (we use a mat but you could also just use a changing pad), especially during the night. During the day for our downtstairs, we use the 4Moms Breeze pack and play (another fav!) to change him on. Lastly, if you plan to pump at all (even if you don't right away) I would recommend stocking up on extra pump parts!
Overall, each one of these items I featured have been LIFESAVERS for us. I'm talking so much so that if we lost one I would literally stop what I was doing to run out and get it again.
I hope this list helps if you're currently pregnant (maybe for future use too?) or are looking for a baby shower gift!
