The Question: What do I need? What do I want? Where do I go?
All of these things come to mind when you are an expecting *NEW* mom, and not knowing the answer can be very *OVERWHELMING*, but the reality is (unfortunately) “There is no right answer”! However I will *WARN* you that *EVERY* mother has their own *VINDICTIVE* opinion (again, just want to keep it honest with you all...be prepared)!
Ok with that being said (with warning) it’s time for me to give you my *fantastic*, *vindictive*, *amazing*, *over-the-top*, “mother opinion”….watch out here I come! Without trying to be overwhelming, I’m honestly a very basic person, with very basic needs when it comes to my little angel (by the way, just in case you didn’t know, he is the smartest, best, most amazing, and cutest child on this earth...blah, blah, blah, LOL)
Whether you are nursing or simply feeding a bottle, this has been a daily essential for me and my husband. It seems so mundane, but trust me, you will use it everyday!
Aden and Anais (swaddles, burp clothes, bibs, etc.) http://www.adenandanais.com
I LOVE this brand!! Muslin breathable blankets, and very well designed burp cloths and bibs. Truly an amazing line of products. Granted they can be a little pricey, but very worth the investment and you can never have too many!
Lillebaby Baby Carrier http://lillebaby.com
This carrier comes with the philosophy of functionality and style (sounds a little familiar, like another cool product I love #MonkeyMat, LOL). No matter what, a carrier is an essential in many ways, such as traveling, freeing up your hands while holding your baby, and just giving them an overall feeling of security.
