Month one: products we love

Itty babies really don't need a whole lot of "stuff" yet {outside of unlimited access to mom's tatas}, but here are some products/items we have used and loved over the past month with Carson. I can't believe she will be one month old tomorrow!

Rock n Play -- this is what Carson slept in for the first 4 weeks in our room. It was very easy to transport to Branson for our weekend trip, too. We did just start her sleeping in her own crib, but she will likely still take some naps in this. It's pretty cozy! We borrowed this from our friends Adam and Heather, since it has a relatively short shelf life.

Boppy Pillow -- considering how often babies need to eat, this is a necessity to me!

Knit blankets -- these are great for swaddling, just the right amount of stretch. We do have the muslin swaddle blankets too, but for some reason I can't get a tight swaddle out of them yet because they are so big.

Sound machine -- we use this at night with Carson to help block out other noises and as a "cue" that it's night time. Seems to be working so far.

Swing -- not all babies like swings, but Carson loves hers! Note: this swing has a really wide base to it. Necessary for safety purposes, but I don't think we could get it through a doorway without taking one of the legs off.

  1. FYI on the Swing. Not 100% sure but the one I used like that had a push button on the back part which would let the legs come together so you can go through a door and them pop them back out.

    Baby girl is soooo cute.
