Two weeks after bringing Rhys home from the hospital we decided to bring on a baby nurse to help us take care of Rhys and show us everything we need to know about taking care of a baby. We were lucky to have this wonderful lady from Trinadad named Miss Trudy. One of the most important things Miss Trudy stressed was a routine for the baby especially in the evening so the baby gets into a rhythm and knows his bed time. She always said the three B’s would be our lifesaver in the evenings; bath, bottle and bed, and boy was she right!
Now that Kaia is a little older, we’ve really been making time to spend more time outside. Before she was born, we were always outdoors doing something and we are slowly getting back to that. I really miss swimming, which we are starting back up as Kaia starts her first swim lessons next month! There is a little park down in our neighborhood that we try to go to so we can get out of the house, let our dog run around and Kaia loves the wind blowing in her face.
Here are some of my favorite things I love to bring when we are on the go:
It has been almost a month since Baby Kaia has arrived and wow, time is already flying by! As a new mother, I’m definitely learning by trial and error and of course asking all my mommy friends for their advice. Just to give you a quick update on how she’s doing, Kaia is eating like a champ and I feel like all I do is breastfeed her, no joke! The first few weeks were tough as I wasn’t used to a baby sucking on me constantly.
Happy Monday!! I’m so excited to announce that I’ve recently been chosen as one of Dr. Brown’s new ambassadors. This is a brand new program, so I’m very thrilled to be joining the family as a new mommy! As an ambassador, I will be sharing a lot about the products, tips and on September 30th, I will be taking over their instagram @drbrowns to show you my day with Kaia. Be sure to follow us and see our day adventure. If you’re a mom, I would love to know what products you can’t live without. It’s always fun hearing what other moms out there LOVE!
