Baby, Pregnancy, and Breastfeeding Must-Haves
Wednesday, February 18, 2009
Functionally, the Beco Butterfly is incredibly sturdy, the shoulder straps are comfortable and can easily accommodate a young child or toddler. And, if that's not enough, Beco includes an instructional DVD in the box to help ensure you wear their carrier properly. So smart!
4. Names That Stick: ($14.95) We absolutely love creativity and Names That Sticks definitely fits the bill. Using Names That Stick is a fun way to come up with your baby's name with your partner, your children, or even at a baby shower.
There are 500 popular name magnets (250 for boys and 250 for girls) that you can combine in a fun way to help come up with the name of your baby. It's a really unique alternative to endlessly flipping through a baby names book. The only drawback is if you're leaning toward a more unique name for your baby or one with a little more meaning and character, Names That Stick won't help you. But, if you and your partnering are sticking with the most used names in America, like Amanda, Maggie, Brian and Tyler, it's a perfect and fun solution for naming your little one.
5. Clip'N'Feed ($35): All breastfeeding moms have a different comfort level when nursing in public. Some are more comfortable than others, and for those moms who prefer to be covered up there are great ways to do so like using the Clip'N'Feed. Instead of covering your baby or toddler's head with a heavy, hot blanket, the Clip'N'Feed can be easily clipped to your top or you can use the neck strap and drape the lightweight cotton cover over your baby. It's perfect for those days you are out and about and your baby or toddler needs to eat. You can do so knowing that you're not bothering those who are easily offending and you can nurse in the privacy you need.
The Clip'N'Feed can also be used as a stroller cover. We like that it's multi functional. The Clip'N'Feed is made of 100% cotton and comes in 16 designs.
6. Fit Mom Pregnancy and PostNatal DVDs ($19.99): It is vital that you stay as healthy as possible when you're pregnant and even after you have given birth to stay energized with a brand-new baby. Fit Mom is an excellent way to stay centered and fit at the same time with their prenatal yoga DVD and postnatal workout DVD. What we like most about these DVDs is not only are they well-produced, but the FitMom experts don't try to beat you into shape or force you out of your comfort zone. Both DVDs provide a reasonable, yet effective way to stay in shape or get in shape after giving birth.
The immediate days after giving birth and even those months before having a baby it is not always feasible to pull on your sweats and get to the yoga studio or to the gym. When those days roll around when you're feeling blah, but you still want to break a nice sweat and feel energized you can pop these in and feel great afterwards.
