top 5 faves in the first 2 weeks::

>> Friday, November 13, 2009

  1. Halo Swaddle Sleep Sacks::in the fuzzy fleece material. It keeps him warm, eliminates the need for a blanket, can't be kicked off, and doesn't ride up around his face and nose.
  2. Aden & Anais Organic Muslin Wraps::made by an Australian company. These wraps are the perfect size - they are big enough to swaddle easily and also double as nursing covers. The muslin is soft and breathable and won't block baby's nose. And it's absorbent enough to use as a bib or milk blotter when it all flows over.
  3. Peepee Teepee::especially for boys. Little whizzers get extra protection with this nifty diaper bag must-have. Just pop it over the important area, and you can clean him up without getting christened.
  4. Munchkin Bottle Warmer::for quicker midnight feedings. We've had to supplement breastfeeding with pumped milk, and it takes forever to get milk to the right temperature in a bowl of hot water. This bottle warmer is quick and efficient, and also sterilizes pacifiers, nipples, nipple shields - you name it.
  5. Postpartum Compression Girdle::just for mommy. I got the idea from a friend who has 6 kids and is still the size of my little finger. She shared the postpartum girdle secret as standard protocol in her home country. And I have to say it's been a huge help already. This link isn't the exact one I have, but it's close enough.

good thing it is winter! would you wear that in summer? think i'll stick to the good ol' diet and exercise method. much more comfortable and it really works too!
p.s. i never wear nylons though either.:)

Oh i'm going for the diet and exercise too! But this is actually in addition to those great things, and helps to shrink the fundus in those crucial early days/weeks before you're allowed to do too much strenuous exercise... :) And I can't wait to get back into the gym and into Boot Camp classes!!

You're right though, not sure how comfortable it'd be in the Georgia summer!
