Gripe Water

So for the list of baby things to buy, u guys all know a hell lot of recommendations. What new moms dont usually do a lot of research on…r the little things, like gripe water, cotton swabs, etc. No blames there, who has the time. So if someone comes across this post here is my recommendation

Mommy’s Bliss Gripe Water… it is the best gripe water there is. I was actually lucky that I had my hands on a good one. It is just amazing, first off it is pure, like natural. Second it has ginger extract and fennel extract in it. These both are home remedies that have been used for ages to relieve stomach gas and discomfort. It has NO , so it is safe for the baby.

I personally recommend it, it is very effective yet gentle for baby. My baby has had no problems every drinking it. Whenever he has any discomfort the product works like a charm (and i have a GERD baby )

Its a little pricey, like $13 at Walmart. However, it truly is mommy’s bliss. I don’t care about the money when i see my baby getting relieved. Highly recommended !! Here is an amazon link for u http://www.amazon.com/Mommys-Bliss-Gripe-Water-Original/dp/B000065X1N/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1379479303&sr=8-2&keywords=mommy%27s+bliss+gripe+water

Aside

baby strollerWith a spring baby, who came in April, we were lucky we had a winter pregnancy. That meant, BLACK FRIDAY ! yaay ! We took a crazy step, which by the 8 month of my pregnancy didn’t seem so crazy…we were done shopping by the 5 months of my pregnancy. Seriously !!?? yes !
My husband was of the opinion that as the time passes m gonna get huge and the best time to shop is the 4-5th months, or when u know the sex of the baby.

So, we were lucky that we had thanksgiving time when we needed to shop. So we got amazing prices for some very good baby stuff.

PLACE TO SHOP:
Walmart ! shop online or in-store. I surveyed many places and I am a 100% convinced that no one has better prices than walmart. We got amazing deals around thanksgiving and we were able to save big. All credit to my hubby, we are intelligent shoppers.

FIRST TIME PARENTS

Stick to all the basic products. If u r on a budget or u are one of the smart shoppers you will find that more or less all products are same. A basic type of shopping is easier for the first time parents, since there is a lot going on and things are changing in your life that you would probably want the baby shopping to be perfect and hassle free.

Hope it helps ! Will keep posting on what to buy for newborn.

Enjoy !

Things I wish I had done when having a baby

So I had a happy pregnancy. Like the one even the medical books don’t even say. It was normal than normal. Seriously freaky normal. I had an amazing time with F (my hubby). So for the nine month of my life I was enjoying it all and life seemed so smooth. I thought this is how the “after birth” is going to be. NO. It was not. It was beyond my wildest dreams. It was so hard that I would never have comprehended. Mainly because I was under the illusion of everything going smoothly because of an amazing pregnancy.

It was so good that we decided not to get any help. We did not let any body know that I was in labor and we needed help. Our parents even offered to come and help us from back home ( we live far far away from USA).

So, long story short…it was hard and I should have gotten some help. NO, I should have accepted some help.

Anyways, for mommies-to-be who do not have any help, here is my list of thing I wish I had done when having a baby:

  • Get all the help offered, seriously. Don’t think you and your partner alone will be able to do it. Especially for the first time parents, it is gonna be damn hard.
  • READ READ READ. Please read all the information you can find online, in books. As much as you read about your pregnancy, you should read about what will happen after the baby. Expecting it to be a smooth car ride, na-aan ! Its NOT. Read especially about how is it gonna effect your life. How will things change for you
  • LISTEN LISTEN LISTEN…. yes ! listen to moms who give u advice. Not the ones who will tell u crazy stuff, but one mommy friend that you trust.
  • Give your baby to nursery at night when you are at the hospital. After the labor n delivery no matter how much you wanna be with the new angel, send the baby to nursery at least for night and sleep the night. If you don’t take rest the first day is gonna be hardest of your life when u bring the baby home.
  • SLEEP…sleep when the baby sleeps, yeah I heard that, I didn’t do that. I made a mistake. Sleep as soon as the baby sleeps. No matter how much you want to just relax away from the sound of crying. Go to sleep ! take many naps.
  • First day of baby life, u r actually gonna question why u had him. The next few weeks you might resent him
  • You are gonna cry the first few weeks, its the baby blues. It will go away !! Trust me. You will feel terrible but it will go away.
  • Post par tum depression is as normal as u can think. Expect it..get help.
  • Stock up some yummy food at home, you will need it.
  • Take a hell lot of pics. They grow out faster than u know.

The most important thing, believe in yourself ! No not your previous self, you new self. You are a mommy and u have a baby. Believe in you being a mommy… My life changed when I started believing in the mom inside me.

Enjoy !
