Learn Something  New About Your Baby 

Everyday, Avery and I learn something new about our son Jake. As new parents,we try different things and often research scenarios to improve on caring for our infant. Keep In mind, there’s no manual on how to properly care for your newborn. We learned that it all comes naturally! We want to make sure that Jake is happy baby! We’re always learning new things about Jake. 

We were stumped as to why Jake would scream & cry in his crib at night. He likes his crib, we feed him, change him,& cuddle with him. 😊😊 We tried swaddling him but he figured out one day that he has all this space to move & wiggle! We stopped because we thought he didn’t like being swaddled. I learned tonight, that he likes being able to move his arms. I wrapped him from his stomach down with a Muslin receiving blanket. Immediately calmed him down! Along with ocean sounds 😃😃

So glad I tried to swaddle him again leaving his arms out! Now he sleeps better and we sleep better! 

Bath Time

Bath Time for babies can be exciting, relaxing or dreadful for most babies. Before giving Jake his first bath I was curious to what people do to make sure that bath time is more enjoyable. 

5 Steps for an Enjoyable Bath:

  1. IMPORTANT: Keep baby warm
  2. Make sure the water isn’t luke warm but not too hot either (Rubber Duck Thermometer)
  3. Line infant tub or sink with towels to give your baby some cushion & warmth on their behinds. 
  4. Keep warm water running on their bodies. No baby likes to be cold. 
  5. Put another plush towel on the counter or wherever you lay your baby after his/her bath with a hooded towel ready to go. 😃

Crib Cry Fix 

We put Jake in his crib when he was 2 weeks! The first week he slept in our room so we could watch him closely. #nervousparents 

We started to put him in his crib throughout the day,so he would get used to it then we transitioned him to sleeping in it at night time. We noticed that he would wake up every so often crying and screaming even though he was fed, changed, & held until he dosed off. 

We recently bought him this Baby Einstein Soother

It totally works! Jake now sleeps or is happily awake in his crib! Parents must get one for their babies! 

Note: I bought mine at Koh’ls because you can use up to 3 coupons per item! Got the Baby Einstein Sea Dreams Soother for $28.99! Best deal out there!
