I had a baby a few weeks ago and there are a few things that I have loved in the first few weeks.
I consider them all must haves! Ok maybe not must haves but things that made my new life with a new baby easier!
I hated cleaning the last few weeks of pregnancy, its was nearly impossible with a huge belly.
My mom is amazing and as a gift to me with every baby she has had a cleaner come in and deep clean my house while I am in the hospital. I loved coming home to a clean house!
It’s one of my favorite things about having a baby.
Pinterest is filled with fun print outs and crafts for kids.
I had some crayons and coloring books packed in their bags and I took some to the hospital so when they came to visit they had something fun and new.
To Learn how to make the Popsicle pads
I used the hot pad on my back because for reason my back was killing me!
I am Hair Stylist and I have tried many many different dry shampoos and this one by FAR is my favorite!
I had mittens to put on but they were always coming off.
I got a bean bed for my first baby and I LOVE it!
This bed can be taken from room to room and we put it in our bed.
I don’t have this one, I have one that was made by some local in Mesa, Az
but this one can be purchased HERE
If you want the info for the lady here locally I would be happy to email it to you, just leave a comment and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I believe hers are $30-35.
or at Target
These are my favorite blankets EVER!
They are big and perfect for swaddling and they are a perfect cover when nursing!
I got THESE Victoria Secret Cotton Pjs for Christmas and these are the best Pjs ever!
Worth every penny. Button Down Pj’s are the best thing for nursing and are great when you don’t want to wear a bra.
Hats, Bow ties, blankets, headbands, backdrops, outfits etc
Have props or matching outfits for siblings too!
Love these Pictures that were done by Tyson French
Love his style and if you live in Arizona I would totally recommended him!
I have some pretty cute kids if I do say so myself !
12. New Movies or Tv series to watch or a good book
My two older girls went back and forth between babysitters, family members and my husband.
I had carpools all worked out, I drove a few extra times the weeks before I had the baby and I had extra help from family and friends so I did not have to drive anyone the first 2 weeks of my babies life.
The schedule was on the fridge and in the bag that was packed for them. That way it stayed as normal as possible for them. It was nice for me when I got home to have it on the fridge because I was too tired to think about anything!
I went into labor at night and so I was happy to know that whoever came to watch my kids would be all set to take them somewhere.
And I knew I would be at the hospital for a few days and I knew my kids would come visit and I would want to take pictures so having cute/ matching outfits was a must! ( My girls hair was done by my hubby and it looked like a hot mess so if you crazy like me, have your hubby practice hair ahead of time) I had about a weeks worth of clothes laid out and ready. It was nice to have outfits ready, it made the week I came home easier.
I am so glad I did this… My kids would have looked homeless if I would have had my husband pack their bags.
I did not want to have to go to the store for stuff I knew I needed a head of time.
