Aww yes, my second time around of having a baby. If you have only had one child, you have no idea why this is such a big deal, but if you have two of them you know what I am about to say..
This second time around I was going to be prepared and have absolutely NO reason to leave out of the house as I recover. During my “prep” period I made sure I had enough..well..everything to last us awhile.
Buying diapers was the first thing on my list. I had no idea what size to get or what brand. I did know our child would have very sensitive skin…be really fair skinned…and have a lot of hair. I was right on all accounts.
But the size was the question. Although both the father and I are both relatively small people, I knew the baby would turn out big…how big was the question.
So, during my buying frenzy (I set aside a certain amount of my income to buy things I did not put on my registry). I came across these totes. The Pampers tote had a bunch of goodies including a free Shutterfly book, along with a pack of Newborn sized and 1 sized diapers.
Huggies tote came with the same items minus the Shutterfly book however the diapers inside were sized 3 (one regular pack and one overnight pack).
The baby came out a healthy 8.5 pounds, so newborn was not a good size for him and he only stayed in 1’s for a few weeks. I loved the quality of the diapers. The Pampers diapers did not feel cheap and only leaked when it was time for him to go up a size. The baby recently graduated up to size three and I had the chance to try Huggies. I did not like the feel of the diapers, the leaked, and left an odor. I never made it through the pack, the Huggies diapers were given away to Goodwill.
So, Pampers vs Huggies…Pampers win hands down.
In a few weeks I will try out Luvs..

Visalus in the News, and MY Take

 

 

 

 

 

After I had my youngest son via c-section, I had issues dropping the weight due to pain and massive weight gain due to carry big and having a large child. I used Visalus to drop down to the weight I wanted to be in less than the 90 days they encourage you to set as your goal. I took awhile to even try the product due to the following concerns:

  1. taste
  2. price
  3. results

The following news clip addressed all of my concerns.

My Two Month Update- Part 1

Well, its two months into welcoming my new bundle of joy home. Although this is not my first time being a mom, I must admit this feels foreign! Things changed in the little over a decade since I became a mother of a bouncing 9 pound boy. I really don’t have much time, so I will make this post short and sweet. I am going to tell everyone the current life savers I am using to stay sane!

This item makes bath time so much easier! I am also blessed to have a very calm child…this tub is great for newborns because it can hold the baby up for you, leaving your hands free! Here is a video review…not mine (because I simply do not have the time to do video at this point).

Next up we have..

I will admit I broke the rules and the baby shares the bed with us…BUT when I am not sleep I put the bundle of joy in this co-sleeper. You can adjust the height with attachments and it is the perfect size to place the tub in. (I know, I know…but the baby is still under 10 pounds and with my c section area still feeling uncomfortable I need something that is high enough for me to properly wash the baby without hurting myself).
This next item is a life saver:

We actually have two of these, during the final trimester of my pregnancy I simply could not sleep laying down. This rocker assisted in me getting more rest before the baby and after the baby helped with feedings.
That is all the time I have to post right now, more to come later…duty calls.
