7 Days of Sensational Finds (Part 3)

1. Gas drops and Gripe Water- Most baby tend to have A TON of gas and B was one of them. He would be in tears because of the discomfort. He  still has gas, but it’s gotten better and he doesn’t cry about it anymore. Gas drops are great to have just incase you LO gets it. You should give them to him before he eats or mix it into the bottle if they get one. We also gave him Gripe Water, which is a natural remedie for gas, colic, or reflux. It contains ginger, fennel, and sodium bicarbonate, which all are good for stomach discomfort. Leg exercises like bicycles are great to use as well, to help get the gas out. We use the Target brand and that runs about $3.00. Mylicon is the top rated brand for babies and that can run about $10.00. Gripe Water is available at drugstores, Wal-mart, Target or online at Amazon.com

2. Hand Soap and Sanitizer- Everyone knows, with a newborn your always washing your hands. I went to Bath & Body Works and brought a bunch of different scented soaps and sanitizer. I love the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent. It was so nice to go wash my hands and smell this lovely scent. I had a hand sanitizer on our coffee table so any time someone came over I would have them wash or sanitize their hands. Plus since it was sitting right there I would remember to do it and others would see I mean business! Ha! While your there get yourself a good hand cream because those bad boys will be dry from all the washing. I also keep the mini size hand sanitizer in my diaper bag and car. Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes are also a great option to keep with you or at house for a quick wipe down.

These are two products I have used from the day Baby B was born. They’re definitely part of my baby arsenal. And I think every new mom should have a baby arsenal.

What’s in your baby arsenal?

Today I’m gonna do a “throw back” picture of the baby just to see how much he’s grown in the past 16 weeks!

7 Days of Sensational Finds and a Giveaway?!?

Starting this week, everyday I will talk about 1 or 2 products I love as a new mom.  I’m by no means a mommy pro, but I do have a few items that I love and want to recommend for any new mom. I did so much research and reading on different baby products and the book “The girlfriends’ guide to baby gear” by Vicki Iovine really gave me a realistic ideas of what’s actually necessary. So definitely check that book out if your pregnant and want some pointers. Once the baby comes home you will see what works best for you and them but here’s a couple of things that I swear by, and still use at 4 months old.

:Side Note: Next Sunday I wanted to do a giveaway of some of the products I mention. I’m not sure if anyone would want to enter but if you would want to do please comment below so I can go out this week and purchase them. Then on Sunday I would post all the details. So, comment below if a giveaway is something your into! Now back to what I was talking about!

1. Pampers Swaddler diapers– I read that you should buy a few different brands just incase your Little One (LO) was allergic, but I didn’t know that some diapers just leak for the hell of it. Huggies is one brand for us that just leak! It happens often with boys. We had about 100 that I  had to give to my sister who’s having a baby girl. Pamper Swaddler  also comes in sensitive, and doesn’t have the Dry Max that can cause irritation for some. I just love the swaddlers. They have the wetness indicator on the front of the diaper so if they are wet you can tell with just looking and not have to do the “sniff test”. Pampers has a great program Gifts That Grow, almost all the products you buy have codes located on them.  You can redeem them online for points, once you accumulate different amounts of points you can get free things. I’m all about free things, so I love it. I definitely think Pampers Swaddlers’ are the way to go for boys.

2. The Soothie– This is the best pacifier. When Baby B was in the hospital they gave us this pacifier to use and he’s used it ever since. Of course I went out and brought all the cute pacifiers that say ” MY MOMS HOT”. He just won’t use them. They have a more round shaped nipple. The Soothie is more like mothers’ nipple, slim and long. The colors aren’t fun at all. Blue, Pink, and green is all you’re getting. One cool “accessory” sold for your soothie is a  Wubbanub Plush Pacifier Toys. It’s a Soothie attached to a stuffed animal, which is a genius idea. Baby B is constantly spitting out the pacifier in his sleep, I’ll have to go and put it back in his mouth once he starts to cry. The stuffed animal rests on your LO chest so they can’t lose the paci so easily.  You have to buy it already attached which kind of sucks, but they are just too cute not to have.These two are a must!

Here’s our daily pictures from yesterday (5/28) and today (5/29).

He loved eating ‘nanas! He did so well with them, but made a funny face when the flash went off.

Baby B and his cousin Gia. They kept staring at each other, looking really confused. They’re exactly 4 months apart.
