These are a few of my FAVORITE things:
Fisher Price Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleeper – We acquired this from my sister who used this with my nephew when was first born. We used to put Miss Sassafras to sleep in this all the time when she was a newborn! It is so much more convenient than a bassinet. It’s about half the cost, and it’s also super light and portable. Plus, you can use it to rock your newborn to sleep and give your arms a rest.
Miracle Blanket – We tried several different swaddling blankets, but this one seemed to work the best for us and our baby. It is super easy to use and we still use it to swaddle Miss Sass from the waist down.
Fisher Price Precious Planets 2-in-1 Projection Mobile – After weeks of watching her smile at the ceiling fan, I caved in and bought my child a mobile. Coolness factors: 1) It plays Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart, nature sounds, as well as heartbeat sounds (which works wonders at lulling Miss Sass to sleep); 2) You can remove the “mobile” part as the baby gets older and the device projects animal figurines onto the ceiling.
Cloud B Sleep Sheep On-the-Go – This was gifted to us and I never even knew it existed! Great little white noise/sound machine.
Summer Infant Day and Night Video Monitor – I read a lot of reviews on different monitors (both on-line and in my Baby Bargains book) and are very happy with this one! We can check on our little one when she’s sleeping and be put at ease.
Wubbanub Infant Pacifier – Fellow mama Sadie introduced this to me and is super cute and ingenious! The plush stuffed animal attached to the paci helps it stay in your baby’s mouth and stay asleep.
Is it any wonder that 100% of my favorite things are in one way or another related to SLEEP? It is amazing how much money you will spend on books and products just to get your child to sleep. You can hardly put a price on your sleep, especially in those weeks when you are getting none.
