I cannot say enough about this. It’s an easy bed side co-sleeper, you can just roll over to easily check on or grab baby, with the push down bar. No awkward bending our getting up. This is especially important for my C-section mama’s. I imagine this would be a lot easier then bending over. The only negative thing I have to say is, my children didn’t last long in it. Maybe 4 months. My children like to roll around in their sleep, and this didn’t allow them to do that.
I prefer this over the other Tula’s because I didn’t need an infant insert, and I can also use it to back carry my two-year-old, or forward carry my four month old. Honestly, might pick up another one, so both my husband and I can each carry a kid, I love it that much.
If you are outdoors, in your backyard, on the beach, or where ever with a non-mobile child, this is for you. I have already used it so many times with my youngest, and it isn’t even summer time yet. Or maybe you have multiples and you just need a quick safe spot, without lugging your pack and play everywhere.
So this may or may not have just turned into a general drying rack for us. Lol whoops. But we love it. Doesn’t look TERRIBLE in a kitchen, I’m not sure how you make any drying rack look cute. It’s not super bulky and it does come in multiple sizes.
HELLO. This is my favorite out of all of them. Easy to grip, and fun to chew on apparently. I wish I would have found this for my first born, as he hasn’t stopped teething since he was 6 months old. My 4-month old LOVES IT. Cannot get enough.
I didn’t use this until we started transitioning to naps in my son’s crib. I love sitting in it nursing or feeding, and rocking him to sleep, sometimes I stay there for a little just taking it all in. It is also where I have my pump next to, so I have a quiet place to pump. It’s one of the most peaceful and relaxing spots in my house, and I think every parent needs that space.
Now, I haven’t tried this one personally, but I have heard so many good reviews. It is a wifi camera, and some people don’t love that. BUT if you have tried this one, let me know what you think, I’m curious to see if I NEED it lol
My saving grace as a new mom. My new mom anxiety never goes away, even though I’m not a new mom anymore. This helped calm my nerves a little. I have heard some complaints about false alarms, we never had any. This can also be used up to 18 months, or until grown out of the sock. I loved being able to peek at my app, and see my sons oxygen levels and heart rate when we transitioned him to his crib.
A Bluetooth sound machine, with different colored lights, and sounds, lets them know when it’s time to calm down, and when it’s time for bed. Good visual clues for toddlers. I do plan on purchasing another one for my youngest room, so he learns routine when the time comes. You can set multiple machines up on one app, with different schedules.
Okay, mamas of two young ones, this is for you. I thought…”oh no, Ill just baby carry one, and push the other in a single stroller” lol nope. Didn’t take us long to go for a double stroller, that we could use our car seat with. There are so many attachments that you can get, that’ll grow with your family’s needs.
My favorite transition swaddle. Both my babes hated being swaddled arms in, so we moved to these pretty quickly, since they started rolling quickly as well. It is supposed to lessen the startle reflex by keeping them a little snug, but still free to roll and move around. My first born used to try and walk in them to and it was adorable. A little starfish. Lol
A good nursing cover if that’s your thing, or a car seat cover. If I take our younger out to a store, especially right now, I make sure he is covered with this. There are lots of brands to choose from, but this is just one of my favorites.
I like this one for just around the house stuff. If there are days where your baby just doesn’t want to be set down, this will be a life saver. I only liked it when our babies were in their first month. I don’t think it gives me enough back support long term. But I also think I have a body of a 100-year-old grandma. You do you, boo.
Lastly, this go around, a silicon teether. Mostly for babes 6+ months, I do occasionally put breastmilk ice cubes in this for our baby, and once they get older, you can start putting fruit, or frozen fruit for teething. My oldest loved this when he was being introduced to solids as well.
Be on the lookout for another blog similar to this. There are so many great products out there for kids, babies, and parents, I can’t fit it all into one lengthy blog post.
PS. Don’t buy jammies with the snaps. IYKYK. Right? Zippers. Always.
