So, now that I have been a Mom for a over 3 weeks. . . time for my must have’s: newborn edition!
I am sure this is an ever changing list as Luke continues to grow and change, but here are a few items that have made the last 2 weeks a little better. . .
Halo sleep wrap
Wraps around the body and helps them feel secure. Zips up from the bottom for easy diaper access in the middle of the night! Helps to keep them warm without extra blankets in the crib (SIDS risk).
Lots of blankets
Good for swaddling, catching spit up, laying on the floor, covering up in the car seat, etc. . . We are loving the Aden and Anais Swaddle Wraps.
Sleepers with snaps
Originally, we thought that sleepers with zippers would be better, but you have to unzip the whole sleeper to get to the diaper, which makes the baby cold and more crying ensues!
And just recently: bottle warmer – so nice for middle of the night!
Finally: someone to be up in the middle of the night and share in the sleep deprivation with you. . . Scott has been excellent with this! It was not fun to send him back to work this week after having him home with us for 3 weeks!
