In honor of my preggo friends (currently there are 4!) today's post is going to be just a few things that have made my life easier for the past 7 months, and a couple of things that I could have done without. Get ready ladies!
100% CORNSTARCH BABY POWDER - Not to be confused with regular baby powder, this version is great for clearing up diaper rash and does not include talc, which can be harmful when ingested.
ERGOBABY CARRIER - Made with organic fabric, this super-comfy carrier can be used from birth (with an insert) until age 5! I used the built-in sun/wind flap to hide the fact that I was breastfeeding!
GUS & MAX FITTED SHEET - The only way I could get my daughter to lay in her crib was with this comfy chenille sheet, I think she thought it was her favorite blanket.
MUSTELA BARRIER CREAM - This diaper cream smells delish, wipes off easily and clears up any redness right away. A little pricier than drugstore brands, but so worth it.
GERBER ORGANIC ONESIES - The Organic version is much softer and thicker, for only a few dollars more. Layered under daily clothes, these onesies form a barrier that helps regulate temperature and keep skin dry from drool and spit-up.
LUVS DIAPERS - These diapers are among the cheapest and they don't look fancy, but they work. And they have a money-back guarantee.
FISHER PRICE CRADLE N' SWING - A godsend! The back and forth motion combined with the cushy padded seat will lull them to sleep every time. Worth every penny.
DR. BROWNS BOTTLES - These bottles are good for controlling gas, but there are too many parts that are hard and time-consuming to clean. With all the options out there, don't waste your time with these.
DESITIN - I got tubes and tubes of this at showers. As far as I can tell, it does absolutely nothing, smells bad, and is hard to wipe off. As with the bottles, there are lots of options, so don't waste your time on this.
GERBER HOODED BATH TOWELS - These are so thin, they don't absorb at all, and L gets cold before I can put her jammies on.
