When I was registering for life with Leo, I honestly had no idea how much or what I needed of anything.
I still don't really know, but I wanted to share ten, somewhat uncommon things, that have really saved us these last few weeks.
1. Night lightThe first night we were home we slept with our bathroom light on because I wanted to be able to see the baby as soon as I opened my eyes. Well, after the first night, we quickly realized we needed a better option so Amazon came to the rescue. This $12 night light is amazing. It's battery operated and has a sensor so all I have to do is wave my hand in front of it and it stays on for 15 seconds, just enough time to get a look at Leo without waking him or Joel for good.
7. BamboobiesThese are much softer and more comfortable than the disposable pads....worth their cost.
9. Nipple CreamI like this brand because you don't have to wipe it off before you feed the baby and so far, has worked like a charm for me.
I could probably name another ten things that have really been nice to have on hand (easy to nurse in clothes, hand sanitizer, the rock and play, the swing, wine.....) but as Joel often reminded me when I was in the height of nesting - Amazon will remain open, and it has. One day shipping is a gift from God.
