It’s hard to know what to take out with you when you first have a baby. This is a list of everything that I take with me on a daily basis if we go out. Enjoy!
There has been a bit of a baby boom in my circle of friends lately and with having had a tiny human, people are looking to me to tell them what I found useful.
Hmmm…where to start? I don’t want to put anyone off breastfeeding but as I said in my ‘About Me’ page, I will always be completely honest. It is bloody hard.
I remember coming home with Sadie from the hospital, putting her in the moses basket next to me and being like ‘now what?’ To be honest, there isn’t a lot you can do with a newborn baby! They sleep for long periods of time and believe me in 16 months time you will miss this peace. However, when you bring your first one home, you feel like you should be doing something with him/her all the time. My advice is the very cliche thing of sleep when they sleep. You will need it. When they are awake, you will obviously want to interact with them so here are a few of the things we did.
I had a few messages on my Instagram account about what my daily routine was with a newborn. Sadie is now 16 months old and obviously her routine is vastly different to when she was first born but I did keep a diary when she was young up until she was about 6 months old. So here is a general 'day in the life of...' from those entries...hope you enjoy!
