In some senses it feels like just yesterday we had a newborn in the house before bringing Lola home. I was surprised at how easily I fell back into the newborn routine with Miss Lola Girl. However, you then realize there are certain baby necessities you forgot about that really do make your life a million times easier. And being a parent of not one but two little ones, anything that makes your job just a little less stressful is what I call a baby must have. I find it's the little things that make all the difference.
Lola is a pretty laid back baby. She eats, sleeps, cries and poops. Okay she smiles and coos and snuggles too but you get my point. The one thing she is really drawn to is her pacifier to help soothe her or calm her down. But I can't tell you how many times Cohen has asked for something or I've stood up to walk to the other room and that darned pacifier falls out of her mouth and goes rolling to the worst possible corner of the room. Now try holding a crying baby while bending down and searching for the pacifier that has been lost in the Pacifier Bermuda Triangle. Not cool. I kept thinking how nice it'd be if I could find something to hold on to that pacifier and get it to stay in arm's reach when it goes tumbling out of her mouth. That's where Baby Buddy's Universal Pacifier Holder has come to the rescue! This thing is the bomb.com for real. The plastic ring at the end hooks on to the end of the pacifier and then I can use the precious little bear clip to snap the pacifier onto her shirt. Then when she decides to spit that sucker out, the Baby Buddy's Universal Pacifier Holder only lets the pacifier fall as long as the cute little ribbon will go. Therefore my back, knees and sanity is saved as well as keeping the pacifier clean instead of allowing it to roll into the corner full of dog fur - you know, the corner that you always seem to miss.
I also mentioned in another post how Miss Lola isn't quite a fan of the bath yet. Girl has some pipes on her and makes sure I know she doesn't like to be cold. But I need to start creating a routine with her so unfortunately bath, bottle and bed it is and that's how the routine will stay for the next three plus years of her life. Normally I will get the washcloth nice and warm and lay it on her belly as I wash her. But then most of the time I'd use another washcloth to bathe her which makes double the laundry for me. Okay, I'm already buried in piles of laundry so I needed to work smarter, not harder. Baby Buddy has this amazing Natural Bath Sponge that is all natural and perfect for my little one's body. Now I can wash Lola with the sponge while using the washcloth as her diva body warmer during her bath. This sponge is amazeballs! It is super soft and soaks up a ton of water. It also lets me get into all of her little crevices - especially under her neck where milk will pile up. Plus it's hypoallergenic and won' mold or mildew -- a double plus!
It's the little baby necessities that make the mommy job just that much easier and sometimes you don't realize how handy these things are until you actually have them! These Baby Buddy products have helped solve those little problems and make my life just a little less stressful - and probably helps add less white hairs to my head.
