It is amazing to watch your little one grow. One minute you are holding a tiny, snuggly bundle to a interactive, funny baby. I love watching Ada take in her world. Her eyes light up at just about everything, especially when people talk to her. And she is sitting up and getting better at it daily. I have mixed feelings about her getting older – a part of me wants her to stay little forever and the other part of me is excited to see the next stage. But mostly, I wish time would slow so I could enjoy each stage for longer… but I am sure I will not be wishing that by the time potty training comes along!
Aveeno Baby Creamy Wash – Ada has very dry sky and this wash seems to help out a little bit. I also use the Aveeno lotion to help battle this dry skin. Any suggestions on how to cure dry skin on a baby? And Aveeno products smell really good, not like baby powder (which I do not like). I love using this wash because Ada smells amazing for a long time. Ada, on the other hand, can’t stand bath time. I’m hoping that will improve with time.
Burp Cloths – Both Ada and I love these burp cloths. They are expensive, but they seem to be the only ones Ada doesn’t mind for me to use on her all day every day. She has started to drool now, so I am constantly rubbing her face. Not only are they really soft, they are also absorbent for those surprise spit up moments.
Mother’s Milk Tea – This stuff taste like licorice, which I hate, but it has helped with my milk supply. So I just put a good amount of honey in the tea and gulp it down.
Book – Ada enjoys this book very much. I keep it with us all around the house – from tummy time (which she still hates), to sit up/play time and for when I need to lay her down in her pack-n-play for a moment. It unfolds like an accordion so it can lay on the ground for tummy time or lean up against the inside of a crib.
Peacock – This is Ada’s favorite toy right now. Her eyes get huge when I place it in front of her and she starts kicking like crazy. I also keep this toy with us all day; especially in the car. This company really knows what babies like, because I have a cloth book of their’s and Ada loves that as well. I’m thinking about getting her some more toys from this company for Christmas!
I hope this has helped some new moms out. I am, by no means, an expert. But I love reading advice from other mommy bloggers so I hope this has helped you out!
