Rock N Play Sleeper–HEAVEN ON EARTH. That’s all I have to say…ok It’s not, but it should be. Turner absolutely LOVED sleeping in this. It’s on an angle so it kept him from having any issues with reflux and just seemed more comfortable. It’s also very cozy since the sides come up. We would swaddle him up and plop him in there at night. He slept for HOURS! Our pediatrician gave us the ok since there’s no loose cloth or pillows. It’s like his own little cocoon!
BumGenius One Size Diaper–When people hear that I do cloth diapers they either think I won’t last or think I’m crazy! I know it’s not for everyone, but it’s seriously EASY! Especially with the all-in-one diapers. Here is my original post with videos and links to everything I ordered. The BumGenius are my favorite now that Turner’s bigger. We also have the Fuzzi bunz One Size but they tend to leak every now and then. I think every diaper is different depending on the build of the baby. But these work great for us!
Bjorn Active–This is perfect for our little chunker! He used to hate it when he was smaller. I could only carry him in the K’tan. Now that he’s bigger he loves the Bjorn! The best part is that Stew and I can both wear it. It sits in the middle of our backs so it doesn’t put a strain on our necks. It’s great when we don’t want to use the stroller. We just throw it on and go!
Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water–This stuff really works. The description says it’s associated with colic. Turner didn’t have colic but he went through a really gassy period around 4 weeks. We would give it to him and the gas came out within minutes!! He felt so much better after drinking it. It was definitely a life saver! We still use it occasionally if he has gas. We also use it for hiccups. It cures them RIGHT AWAY! I will always have it on hand!
Peppermint Bark–Ok this isn’t for Baby, it’s for me. When my mother in law was here, she bought this peppermint bark for us which was THE BEST thing I’ve ever tasted. I was seriously hooked. I loved it so much that, when it ran out, we made our own. Then, after New Year’s I had to give it up. It was a bad addiction.
Udo’s Infant Probiotic–I always have taken a probiotic and I know Turner gets a little through me, but I have a friend who started giving this to her baby. Genius! I got mine at Whole Foods. I just put a 1/4 tsp in his bottle every night.
Baby’s DHA-Our poor little boy. He’s getting all sorts of fun things from me that he doesn’t realize. This is his fish oil. He drinks it right up. We give him 1 ML a day. It helps with brain and visual development, immunity, and nervous system development. We’re starting good practices even at this early age!
