This week I'd like to share something that is for YOU after you have the baby. These are inexpensive but a must have for anyone who is breastfeeding. You WILL have leakage . There is nothing more embarrassing then having someone over to see the baby and your shirt starts to get wet, and more wet and all the sudden there is a milky mess! I used the reusable for home and the disposables out on the go! Here are two of my favorites. Order now, thank me later!
There is no doubt your baby will get a fever at some point. This is by far the easiest way to take the baby's temperature. It is simple to use by just placing in the ear for a few seconds and it pops up with a digital read. The inserts are really cheap. My favorite feature is that when you turn the thermometer back on after not being used it shows you the last temperature in case you want to track whether the temperature was going up or down. I had two of these one for my moms and one for my house and they have lasted 8 years and still going!
Saline and Suction. What is that?! Don't fret. Saline is a light spray or drop that you can use in your baby's nostril in case they become stuffy, which will probably happen sooner than later. Talk to your doctor about how early you can use these or follow the instructions on the box. This has ALWAYS helped my kids if they were stuffy or sick I would have to run out and grab it. Suction is another life safer, you may need this one right away from day one. If the hospital gives your one great you can use it for a while but I recommend renewing these every so often. They're cheap on Amazon, I've linked them below.
This I underestimated on how much I really needed this. I had one with my daughter that was audio only and it was ok it did the job. But the one I bought with my second was a GAME CHANGER. It had video and the best part- 2 Way Audio. It is by far the best feature of this monitor. When your baby wakes or fusses, you can press one button and instantly your baby can hear your voice. It also had a long range, I could see my from any part of my town home. There is a night feature that enables you to see the baby with the lights off. Also if your baby moves, you can pan the camera without physically going in the room. This is a must have for all moms!

This is one thing I could not live without when I had my babies. A Bouncy Chair. This vibrating and musical chair usually always did the trick when the baby needed to be comforted. I had my first one for 3 babies but it was pink when I had my boy so my best friend bought me this one and I loved it!
Reason why you need a simple bouncy chair:
1. This one is neutral meaning if you plan on having another baby this will last and you may want to get a gender neutral one.
2. There are not too many bells and whistles so your baby won't be too inclined to play but will sleep and snuggle when you need him or her too. The vibrating and music is perfect to soothe them to sleep.
3. The best part about these bouncy chairs is that if you wan to shower or cook they are small and light enough to move from room to room where are your swing or rock and play might be too big. It's also small enough to bring to the in-laws for holidays or if your baby is going to the baby sitters.
This was a must have all four babies for me!
Tummy butter is one of the first things your going to want to pick up when you get pregnant or start showing. This one I used during my first and second pregnancy. I did not get any stretch marks. I switched it up for my third because I could not find this in stores and got the worst stretch marks. I'm not sure if everyone's pregnancy will be the same but it's worth a shot! You can now get it by clicking the link below! One or two tubs should be enough for one pregnancy . Let me know your thought below!
