A mother’s joy begins when new life is stirring inside. A tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, and a playful kick reminds her that she is never alone. But when this adorable squished up little thing, comes out, it doesn’t come with an instruction manual. Good thing Emily Norris, a Youtuber, shares her newborn tips and hacks to make babysitting an exciting journey.
My son has only had 2 diaper rashes and is 14 months old. Those two diaper rashes were caused from severe diarrhea…. this is the best diaper wipe because it does not have harsh chemicals that will burn the babies skin causing rashes. My friends used other brands and their children were always red, every time I helped change a diaper the OTHER diaper wipes would burn my own skin, so I can’t imagine having to use other brands on a very delicate baby butt!
It is healthy as a mom to have a habit of checking or changing their nappy every time that you feed. This helps avoid nappy rash on baby’s sensitive skin. An easier way to check if the diaper is wet is to look at the yellow stripe on the outside and if it turned blue, it is wet. One Diaper Brand which has this feature and the Amazon’s best selling disposable diaper is Pampers. Pampers diapers are the number 1 choice of the US hospitals. It has this Extra Absorbent channels which help distribute wetness evenly.
I’ve never been a huge Wadler’s fan, but these were on an amazing deal so I grabbed a box. I got the size 5 and they start at 27 pounds, and my son is 21 pounds. Since I sized up they last him all night. I use cloth during the day so these are just a nighttime back up when my good night time diapers have not been washed yet. The reason I wasn’t a huge fan of swaddlers is because when I had newborns I always felt like their butts were sweaty, but I finally figured out that the pee will go straight through. Lesson learned by sniff test! I do like that they are soft.
To help settle your baby, hold their head and bum and rock and sway. This will make them feel secure feels just like they were back in the womb. Some baby’s also like to be swaddled to mimic the feeling of being in the womb and the best way to do it is use a swaddle blanket and wraps them up like a little fajita. For maximum comfort, you can also order Ely’s & Co.’s Adjustable Swaddle Blanket on Amazon. This swaddle blanket is made up of 100% High-Quality Cotton to help baby sleep safe and sound while they feel that they were in the womb.
Having a newborn is exhausting. But time flies so fast and you won’t notice how fast your baby grows. One moment you were cuddling him, the other moment he started running and exploring the world and how it goes. So, although babysitting your own baby is like having a boss which doesn’t reward you, just hold them or kiss them and enjoy everything before they start running around.
