When Your Baby Starts Sleeping

Friday, May 13, 2016

Before you become a mother you honestly have no idea what you are in for with the whole experience.  You learn what you are doing as you go and every day brings new challenges and memories.  While becoming a mother brings you an overwhelming feeling of love beyond anything you have every experienced, there is one thing you will never fully be prepared for - the lack of sleep and exhaustion.

I'm pretty sure that any first, second, third or fifteenth time mom can agree that when your baby starts sleeping it's like the clouds have parted and you hear the angels singing their praise.  Don't get me wrong, Remy's sleep is far from perfect but the fact that she will take two decent naps and sleep in at least 7 hour stretches at night is far better than waking up four times during the night eat.  I clearly remember Remy's first big sleep because she had just transitioned to her crib.  It was the first time in a long time that I slept hard - like I woke up in the same position that I had fallen asleep in hard.  I rolled over and looked at the clock and began to freak out because it was 4:00 a.m. and she hadn't woken up yet!  She then slept another hour until she started to stir and I had to get up with her.  While I was stoked that she had decided to sleep ten hours, I was a bit hesitant to see how wet her pajamas and sheets would be when I got her up.  However, with Remy being our third baby I got smart when it came to nighttime protection.  I stocked up on Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers for when this amazing night of long sleep would finally occur.

What makes these diapers so great?
Well, there are several reasons.  First of all, Huggies Little Snugglers are preferred by Mom over Pampers Swaddlers and help keep your little one's skin clean and healthy.  Even though her diaper may be wet, the breathable outer cover helps keep her comfortable and lets that skin breathe.  I also love the fact that Little Snugglers are fragrance and lotion free too which won't irritate my sweet girl's sensitive skin.   As Remy started sleeping in these longer stretches, the pocketed-back waistband was designed to keep the mess in where it belongs - and I mean ALL the mess.  I feel confident knowing that Huggies Little Snugglers were made to protect my baby's skin and keep her comfortable - which makes these long stretches of sleep just that much sweeter!

Recently my husband and I got a membership to Sam's Club and I have to be honest, it has been the best investment yet!  We make a monthly trip to stock up on our life necessities and have saved so much money with their prices.  Huggies Little Snugglers are always on my list (one box lasts a good solid month moms!) as well as Huggies Natural Care Wipes.  I love these wipes because they are gentle and soft for Remy's skin yet the thick TripleClean layers can handle any mess.  Huggies Natural Care Wipes are hypoallergenic, fragrance and alcohol free with a touch of aloe and Vitamin E to provide a gentle clean.  While some wipes can be harsh and cause Remy's little tush to get red and irritated, these wipes continue to show me why Huggies wipes are the #1 branded choice of moms!

You guys, it's okay because I'm tired too.  I mean we were consistently sleeping through the night here recently until Remy sprouted a cold, double ear infection and decided to pop 4 teeth one right after the other.  But it really does go by so quickly and one day your baby won't need you to rock them back to sleep after a bottle or bad dream.  I keep telling myself to enjoy the little moments because it won't be like this for long!
