My baby is already a month old! Time please slow down. On Saturday we took his 1 month photos. I found these "month tie stickers" on Etsy and immediately fell in love.
I made it through the first month, hooray!!
Here are few things that have made my life a little easier this past month.
First and foremost, I would never have made it through this first month without the love, support, and help from my friends and family particularly my mother. I cannot express how helpful she has been and how grateful I am for everything she has done for Aidan and I.
Swaddle me: It's amazing how quickly one of these can soothe your baby. Aidan moves his arms and legs like crazy, which tends to frustrate him when he is really tired. These work perfect to control his movement and help him into a deep sleep.
Bouncer: Aidan spends time in his bouncer seat every morning. He loves the vibration. It's perfect for when you need to try and get something done like use the bathroom!
Binkies: I always have one handy for those cranky baby moments.
Cradle Swing: Aidan can sleep in his swing for hours.
Boppy Pad Liners: These have saved my changing pad cover from pee many times!
Boppy Pillow: This has been extremely helpful with both breast and bottle feeding.
Rock and Play Sleeper: I bought this based off a recommendation from another mother and boy am I glad I did. It is perfect for when Aidan is sleepy but insists on not closing those blue eyes. The rocking calms him and puts him right to sleep most of the time.
