Okay, so having a new baby at home has reminded me just how much I love these products I am going to share with you. Its funny how much you can forget in just a few years, but how quickly some of it comes right back. I am actually trying to keep a detailed journal this time around so I can remember some of what happens.
I remember, when Jackson was born, asking other moms about my baby questions and was surprised when they would say they couldn't remember. "can't remember?!" I would think to myself. Seriously, I was shocked. When you are in the thick of it with a newborn you assume you will never forget anything because how big each little thing they do is.
However, I will be the first to admit that when I was just a little ways down the same road and would have people ask me questions about when Jackson started sleeping through the night or when did it stop "killing" to have the baby latch on to nurse? I remember staring at them blankly and thinking, how can I not remember that?! You honestly just forget. So I am keeping a little journal and trying to help myself remember as much as I can. :)
Anyway, I have stumbled back upon some of my all time favorite baby products. They are just some of the things that make the first few months a little better, since sleep and comfort are hard things to come by. Thank you to the makers of these products, I think moms across america would agree with me.
Products I love...in no particular order...
Product #1: Lansinoh Nursing Pads
Super absorbent and very comfortable. They are thin and still hold a lot. I leaked all the time, the first time I nursed, until I found these nursing pads.
Product #2: Pampers Swaddlers
Have I had any blow out diapers...no. Have I had leaking on clothes...no. Have I had diaper rash...no. Now I don't know that this diaper prevents all of this, but seriously we haven't had any issues and they have got to be the most cozy diapers out there!
Product #3: Baby Bjorn
This thing is genius with two kids! Seriously. I didn't use it all that much with Jackson, as a baby, but I use it almost daily this time around. It keeps my hands free for those times I need to follow Jackson around and still be able to use my hands (the park, a walk, the mall, the post office, storytime at the mall...you name and I have probably used it there). Plus Bennett falls asleep in the Bjorn almost instantly.
Product #4: Nuk
I know that people either love pacifiers of hate them, but pacifiers are my lifesaver! I love them! They helped keep Jackson calm or relax him.
I hope this picture doesn't offend. I am sorry if it does. I think it is pretty PG rated. Anyway, this has got to be THE MOST COMFORTABLE bra EVER! Okay, so the support isn't all there, but seriously, when you are already tender and need as little pressure there as possible this bra fits the bill. Plus, no snaps or clips to mess with in the middle of the night. I still wear mine during the day, just because I can. :)
