Newborn babies love noise because it reminds them of the constant whooshing of amniotic fluid in the womb, their mother's heartbeats, voices, even outside sounds like hair dryers and dogs barking. Silence is actually pretty frightening for them.
I read a lot while I was pregnant, like, probably too much. So, I can't remember how I stumbled onto an article in Time about allergies and babies sleeping on fur, but I did.
Okay, let’s say it together: those big blue bulb things are GARBAGE. I actually wish that I had brought the Baby ComfyNose Nasal Aspirator to the hospital with us when Mila was born.
I had been up since 4 am; Mila woke up, ate a little bit, and then decided that it was an appropriate time to have a conversation with her dad and me. She babbled for about an hour. We listened to her and giggled a little bit for the first fifteen minutes.
When I was researching all the things to put on my registry, I got so overwhelmed by strollers and car seats, I asked my husband to conquer the task. I’m glad I did because he made a wonderful decision: the Baby Jogger® City Mini®.
I like it when things look nice, sophisticated even. I'm a big fan of the classic look, clean lines, the color black. That's why looking for a baby activity gym was so difficult. They're all hideous.
I originally wanted to do cloth diapers exclusively as I am pretty fearful of what kind of stuff (usually chlorine, fragrance, etc.) companies put in disposable diapers, but living in an apartment without a washer/dryer in-unit kind of messed up my plans.
