Newborn Survival Guide

I used to love when bloggers would recommend their favorite baby products so I am going to do the same each month.

I could not have gotten through the newborn stage without these items (okay fine, I could have survived without all of them, but these were my favorites).

1) Wubbanub Pacifier. These things are hard to find, but I'm glad I finally got my hands on one of them. Newborns need to suck to calm down, but they can't keep a pacifier in their mouths for more than 3 seconds. The wubbanub weighs the pacifier down so it stays in the mouth longer and G can hold on to the dog to help keep it in place. I need like three more of these. STAT.

2. The Cloud B Sleep Sheep: This is a great white noise machine and it helps G fall back asleep each and every night. When this doesn't work and he's really fussy, I'm in love with the IPhone application titled: White Noise. It works wonders.

3. The Fisher Price Rock n Play. We assumed that we'd just have G sleep in a pack n play in our room, but he actually sleeps in this now. The Rock n Play takes up 1/3 of the space, is compact, and it rocks like a cradle. The incline makes it great for any reflux issues and the sides make them feel more enclosed like they were in the womb. We even take this on trips with us when we sleep away for the night because it folds up so compactly.
4. This was a bit of a splurge but I love this JJCole diaper caddy. I made my own makeshift diaper caddy for the bedroom out of a plastic bin, but this one is more visually appealing and matches our living room decor. There is no way I'm walking upstairs every time this boy blows out a diaper. This makes it so much easier to change him downstairs and it keeps everything organized in one place (I'm anal).

5. The boppy pillow. I'm obsessed. He's currently sleeping on it right next to me on the couch. It's especially perfect for breast feeding. Get one!

We didn't have a Rock n Play for Jamie, but I've heard such great things about them! Maybe for baby#2 I will have to get one.

And I bought that same diaper caddy for my BFF when she had her baby! She loved it!

I think we're going to get a Rock n Play for baby #2. I've heard nothing but good things about it. L slept in a pack n play next to my side of the bed which worked fine, but there were definitely nights I wish I had something like that instead.

L needs white noise all night, so I actually had to buy him a white noise machine. We loved the Sleep Sheep, but it didn't play long enough. It's so cute tho!

Dude! That rock n' play is my new go-to Baby Shower gift. One friend told me she loved it so much & that every new mom NEEDS to have it. I bought it for my husband's cousin's shower even though they didn't register for it & they've since told us that it's the #1 used shower gift. Their son sleeps in it too instead of the crib.

Both of my kids slept a lot in an upright vibrating chair. Loved my Boppy!
