Boppy medical cushion: I am aware some individuals choose the Nipple Buddy breastfeeding support, but We have usually loved new Boppy
I have a couple and like the swing I remain one downstairs plus one upstairs. I personally use the newest Boppy mainly to possess nursing, but have plus tried it in order to prop the little one upwards immediately after a feeding (when you’re I am sitting near to the woman/him), and to help seated right up whenever kid is actually very first learning.
Muslin swaddle covers: We have a plethora of baby blankets, but the Aden and Anais blankets are by far a favorite. They’re HUGE and lightweight muslin so they’re perfect for swaddling, especially in the warmer months. They’re great to use as a clean place for baby to lay when we’re out and about and as a stroller or car seat cover. I’ve also bought undyed natural muslin from the fabric store and use that as a swaddle blanket. That muslin is less stretchy than the a + a blankets so it’s harder for baby to kick its way out of the swaddle.
Cloth diapers: These suckers have so many uses. I have a stack of Gerber brand cloth diapers and use them as burp cloths. They’re so absorbent (as they should be – after all they’re diapers!) and really help me protect my own clothes when I’m burping the baby. Stasa and Tommy have been the queen and king of spit up in our house, so we go through bibs like crazy. These diapers have helped catch a lot of the spit up. I bought our batch of diapers back when I had Stasa and they’ve gone through the wash multiple times over several years and have help up well.
Olive-oil: Thank God Anne told me about this stuff. I’ve replaced my beloved lanolin with it and have used it to heal cracked nipples, as a lube on my pump flanges, as a hand lotion, to help rid Tommy of cradle cap, as a hair mask for Lexi to help her dry scalp, and as a replacement for butter when cooking and baking. LOOOOOOVE this stuff.
Greatest crib layer: I however like so it layer more than almost every other crib sheet.
