Fun Baby Socks

21564_meds 30329_meds 30330_medsOk, since my last post with the Johnny’s Socks, I have found more socks that I just had to share. When I had my kids I was often gifted shoes that served as no purpose, other than a waste of money. I loved a good pair of fun socks however, socks are a useful gift that is good all year around.  I found some fun baby girl and boy socks that are Baby Shower worthy.

12790_meds 16193_meds 19306_medsCheck out this great selection of boys and girls socks that I found.  Sock   choices are Baby Tube Socks, Tillys Sandal Socks, Baby Boy Oxford Socks, Skater Jenny Infant Socks, Infant Shoe Sock for Boys and Girls,  Mary Jane Infant Socks, Infant Cowboy Socks,  and the adorable Jitterbug Jenny Socks. Each pair is unique, I bought the Infant Cowboy socks for my god son who is from a farming family. His mom loves them and they go perfectly with his John Deere Outfit and baby cowboy hat.

Fisher-Price – My Little Snugabunny Bouncer

When I had my first child Michaela she loved to sit in her bouncer like the one pictured below. One of the best features that I found she loved the most was the vibration mode, she loved sitting in her Fisher Price My Little Snugabunny Bouncer. She would sit in there as I was doing my dishes, folding laundry, and I would even bring it into the bathroom so that I could shower! This great bouncer plays music and l soothe your baby to sleep with vibrations controlled on the easy to use panel. Your baby can sleep without his or her head falling all over the place, the head snuggler will keep the head and neck supported while sitting in the bouncer.

The music and the overhead adjustable birdie mobile has cute soft hanging birdie friends to entertain your baby. The music plays eight sweet songs as well as nature songs, the volume control is adjustable to soothe your baby to sleep. This bouncer is light weight and very portable, and keeps your baby safe with a three point harness. We used to take it along camping with us and it was very easy to transport. The bouncer cover is completely machine washable, which I loved, it made stain treatment a breeze. If you love camping like we do, check out this blog about How to Take Your Baby Camping. It is filled with tons of great tips and useful ideas on how to making camping go smoothly with babies.

 

 

Make Tummy Time Fun!

It is important for babies to have “Tummy Time”. Having this tummy time will allow them the experience of being on their tummy helping the babies learn to push up, roll over, sit up, crawl, and pull to a stand. Creating a fun space on the floor is essential for tummy time. Your baby is used to sleeping on his or her back, so try creating fun entertainment so your child can be entertained while having tummy time. You will also want to keep your baby company while they are doing their tummy time. Keeping your baby distracted while they are face down is key until they get used to this tummy time.

While your baby is adjusting to tummy time you will want to provide some entertainment. Maybe have the other brothers and sisters nearby to talk to the baby. You may also want some nice soft plush toys nearby to look at. You will want to place the baby on a fun colorful mat, see picture above. Another way to help with tummy time would be to use a rolled towel or even a Boppy Pillow to prop your baby up, putting them under the chest with arms out in front of them.

Another one of my children’s favorites, is an exercise ball. I had bought an exercise ball at Walmart to use during my pregnancy, since sitting on a normal chair really irritated my sciatic nerve in my side. I used a big blanket and set it on top of the ball, while holding the babies legs and back my husband and I would roll the kids back and fourth. Of course we used this method when the kids were almost five and six months old and not newborns.  How do you like to have tummy time with your baby?

The Miracle Blanket

Have you ever purchased something that had a 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back and actually needed to take it back? Me either… I can swear by these Miracle blankets, my kids loved them and stayed so calm when they were all wrapped up. I can remember back when my brother was just a baby 21 years ago and we had to wrap him in a regular blanket really tight like this.

 

When my brother first came to us in foster care he had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, he was very fussy and he was three months premature. I remember when the social worker handed him over to my dad, he was so tiny that he literally fit in the palm of my dads hand.  My brother was so small and suffered from bad colic, he was always fussy. He loved being wrapped tight like a little burrito {that is how we described it}.

Keep rockin!

The Fisher Price Cradle n Swing is one of my most favorite gifts to give to new Mommy’s and Daddy’s as a baby shower gift. Babies have tons of fun in these types of rockers/swings. I like that some of them play music and have other fun attachments to them. When in doubt, these make great gifts!

I seen one of my clients have one of these for their baby. She put the baby in the cradle and the baby was having so much fun. The baby was smiling, laughing and having so much fun. There there nothing like a baby’s laughter and coos. They make me melt. I love hearing them make noises. They are so cute!!

It makes me want a baby. I know that I told myself that I would never have any, but all the right guy can change that I guess? So where is he??? LOL
