Time is moving so fast! Wilder is already three months old… and I’m in disbelief. I actually first titled this post “Two Months…” before I realized that was incorrect. So here we are, three months in with two.
I have to say it’s a lot easier the second time around. I remember when Crosby was a newborn thinking the hard times felt endless. Now I know everything is a stage… and it eventually ends. We’ve gotten really lucky with Wilder – he is such a chill baby! Started sleeping through the night at eight weeks and has been a dream ever since. Ha! He eats a lot… I feel like I spend half the day feeding him, but if that’s how we get a full night’s sleep, I’ll take it. He basically only cries when he’s hungry… or in the bath. He HATES baths.
Crosby is still being so amazing with him. I don’t think she remembers life before “Baby Wida,” as she calls him. He’s the first thing she asks for in the morning and is not happy until we get him out of his bassinet. Poor guy gets woken up a lot by her.
I want to share my 10 favorite baby products that have helped get us through the first three months:
Mamaroo – what he naps in during the day
White noise machine – use one with Crosby too/always travel with them.
Baby Bjorn Bouncer – probably my favorite baby item. Can be easily moved around the house, travel with or stored when you aren’t using.
Baby Bjorn Mini Carrier – hands down my favorite baby carrier. So easy to use and comfortable!
Breast Friend Nursing Pillow – most comfortable pillow for breast feeding.
Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced – makes the perfect temp bottle in seconds.
Comotomo Bottles – great bottles for breastfed babies to avoid “nipple confusion”
Playmat – both of my babies have been obsessed with this bright mat.
Freshly Picked Diaper Bag – I’ve used lots of diaper bags but this one remains my favorite. Comes in lots of colors too! Gets 40% off with code FPxAshnfashn
Halo Sleep Sack Swaddles – easy to use and it velcros so they can’t escape.
I know I said top 10, but I have to include a bonus…
Bambo Nature Diapers – I’ve used these since Crosby was a newborn. Eco-friendly and still really absorbent.
