General thoughts on this period –
Everything is still on the floor. Your baby. Your baby’s spit up. Your passed out partner. This mat has thick padding, waterproof, wipeable and not ugly. At 11 months it’s still a fixture in our living room (under the baby jail now). This is what I buy everyone having a baby.
At this point we had started daycare and I felt like I was constantly being hit up for more clothes. My kid had more outfit changes in a day than a J.Lo concert. These amazon onesies are good quality and a ‘send to daycare’ price point. After they finally sent the baby home in a lost and found ‘I’m with Grandpa’ shirt and his belly hanging out I finally bought enough daycare clothes.
This was a post on my Instagram and it’s still our one and only diaper bag. Its exactly like the Fawn ones but a fraction of the price. They’re both made in China and ‘vegan’ leather so just go with the Amazon one. Save your dollars for foot massages and babysitters. Little Gym ain’t free.
“This was as much of a transition as the first 3 months but I could feel like I was moving towards something.”
You and every other internet mom you know (daycare and otherwise) ALL BOUGHT THE SAME SHIT. These labels are actually dishwasher safe. Buy more than you think you need.
I love this thing. Still. We didn’t use it much for feeding during this time but it was great for him to sit and play at the counter while I cooked dinner or cleaned. You can literally hose it off outside or in the shower and it’s great for grandparents/eating out because it’s so easy to use.
