I cannot believe Peter is already one month old. Oh, how our lives have changed, but in such a beautiful way. We rang in the new year with our little bundle and enjoy every second spent with him.
I am so thankful to our family and friends for all their support and love while we have adjusted to this new season of life.
I’ve learned so much over the course of this first month of motherhood, and I’m excited for the months to come with our little family.
Today I’m sharing some of our favorite baby products that we have actually used.
Hatch Baby Rest Night Light and Sound Machine. I LOVE this white noise machine. I have it set to the sounds of the beach and it connects to your phone so you can control the noise volume, type of white noise, and brightness of the nightlight feature. I turn the lights off and turn this on before taking baby to his room for the night. It helps set the mood and the noise signals that it’s time to sleep.
DockATot. This has been such an awesome baby accessory to have. I can put baby on the bed with me and not have to worry about him rolling around and getting tangled in the blankets. When I need to make a bottle I set him in the DockATot on the couch and am not afraid of him rolling off the couch. I also naps in the DockATot when we go visit family. I love that we can take it pretty much anywhere with us.
Blooming Bath Flower. We tried giving baby boy a bath using a normal baby tub, and he was definitely not a fan. The other night we tried out the blooming bath flower and I don’t think I’ve ever seen him so calm before. He laid there quietly in the water looking all around and didn’t mind getting washed one little bit. Of course, as soon as we got him out and the cold air hit him he started crying, but it’s progress!
Graco Baby Swing. Whoever invented baby swings deserves some kind of reward. Little man loves hanging out in the swing during the day. When I see him getting sleepy I put him in the swing and he’s asleep within seconds. The swing is the only way I’m able to get anything done during the day, like brush my teeth!
At one month old baby boy is growing like a weed! He now weights 11 pounds 6 ounces, is 21.75 inches long and looks so great according to his doctor. He is sleeping for about 4 hours at a time at night, so mommy and daddy are finally getting longer bursts of sleep! He is happiest in the mornings when I first get him out of his crib and he loves taking his morning nap while laying on me. He sleeps peacefully whenever we go out, both in the car and in the store. He does tummy time for up to 15 minutes as he LOVES being on his tummy and he’s able to hold his head almost completely steady on his own.
I am so appreciative of the time I’m getting to be home with him. I know going back to work will be challenging, so for now I’m soaking in all the time I can with him.
