I cannot believe that in a little over THREE months we will be welcoming baby girl number three. I feel like time is going by slowly as well as very fast. While I am in not in a hurry to get things organized I know we have a summer that will allow for that to happen. On top of organizing, there is a lot of clean-up and purging required as well. Don’t you feel like that all the time?
As we prepare for our little treasure to make her appearance I think about how I can make my experience of having a newborn a little easier. I also am thinking about how I can be available for my other girls needs at the same time. I am not planning for the arrival of a new baby to be hard but just tricky since instead of juggling two little ones I will now will require to manage three girls. I am up for the challenge.
One of the things I will enjoy getting back to is breastfeeding. While we stay pretty active outdoors, a cover has never been my favorite when out in public. I always feel awkward adjusting straps and making sure I am not flashing. I know many moms would say I should ditch the cover and feed without it but I simply am NOT that type of mom. I like being discreet and being private. One of the products I look forward using is Lassig’s great Allover Nursing Scarf which is made from a breathable and hypoallergenic Lyocell, a lightweight yet strong fabric. The allover can be worn many different ways, including as a neck scarf, stole, bolero and cape. I am so excited to be using it not just as a cover while feeding the baby.
Something else I have been enjoying during my 6th month of this pregnancy are belly bands. They are truly my favorite since they add an extra support when wearing jeans, pants, or even skirts. Lassig has a Ruffled Bellyband that can be utilized as a layer underneath your shirt or to be utilized over a shirt and belly to accentuate the pregnancy. It is made of high quality cotton and is designed for one-size fits all to accommodate all shapes and sizes. I much preferred wearing it UNDER my shirt since I do not need any more accentuating of my belly. HA HA. I do like the fact that the company offers so many designs.
While I thought of myself and the new baby I thought it would be wonderful to have something fun for my girls. Since they are very much into everything that has to do with princess I thought it would be great to surprise them with a fun hooded towel by YikesTwins in Princess Penelope. This royal towel is 100% cotton terry towel and has been re-designed with embroidered “bejeweled” tiara that allows for easy washing. The girls really loved it. The towel dried pretty well and it was a big towel, large enough to keep my girls warm while I dried them.
So dads or friends who have moms expecting, think about these gifts because Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and maybe one of your friends who is expecting for the first time just needs a few products that will meet their needs like the Allover Nursing Scarf or Lassig Bellyband. Sometimes just having a new product makes the experience a better time.
