After trying every swing out there we found they we're so bulky and most swings were SO fast we caved in a bought the glorified Mamaroo. I have to admit its a pretty cool concept but it just didn't do it for us. Anytime I set Ava in it while awake she fussed. So we ended up returning it. The $50 bouncy we bought from Target, as well as the pack and play (previously posted under "must have baby products") have been AMAZING!!
We did end up buying this Disney Swing and love it! It sits a little higher off the ground than the other swings and to me looked less bulky. It also has 5 speed setting which was just what we were looking for!
|The aden and anais swaddle blankets are worth every penny! They are a little pricey but we use them all day long! One of my followers pointed out that Target sells them for a little cheaper so I highly recommend checking for them there.|

Like most babies Ava was pretty gassy the first month. Our pediatrician recommended this baby probiotic and it really seemed to help her tummy. Its a healthy bacteria that helps with digestion.
They also have this kind for older kids that look and taste like starburst! So if your little ones need some help in the potty department def look into these (they can be a little pricey though from Whole Foods)
There is NOTHING worse than hearing your little one cry in pain! I felt so helpless in the first month when Ava's tummy was upset from something I had ate! Little tummys Gripe Water was a life saver! We have only had to use it 3 or 4 times in the past couple months but as soon as we give it to her she settles!
These milk screen tests were a MUST for me! I couldn't wait to have my first glass of wine after almost a year but I was so nervous! Even though my doctor said a glass of wine was ok...these tests strips were a great reassurance that she wasn't getting any alcohol in her milk! After using them a couple times I know that it takes my body about 2.5 hours to clear one glass of wine from my milk but I still test anyway! So highly recommends these for first time moms who are paranoid about enjoying a MUCH deserved cocktail and breastfeeding!
I posted these on Instagram last week. I LOVE wubbaNubs soothers! They have a little stuffed animal attached to them so the baby can hold on to it and helps keep the soother in her mouth. Highly recommend!
