I by no means know how to be a mother better than anyone. I have only been one for a few months. But the journey I have been on has been amazing. I love to share stories of how I am surviving as a new mother.
Today I share the must haves for a new mother. These are things I have found work wonders in my busy day to day life.
1. A drying rack.
2. A organizer for bathroom.
3. Multiple diaper changing stations. You never know when you are going to get into a disastrous mess and where it will be. We have a changing table in Colt's room, a diaper holder in our room, and his pack and play in the living room. Makes for changing diapers wherever a breeze. I do not think I would survive with just one place to change diapers.
4. A bobby pillow.
5. A carrier.
6. Fisher Price's Fish Tank.
7. A great diaper bag. I knew when I was pregnant that I had to have a stylish diaper bag that I would love since I am a purse hoarder. Jason bought me a Vera Bradley one as a present early on in my pregnancy when I was not feeling well. (Awwww! Yep, my hubby can be sweet) This is now my purse when I have Colton. Invest in one with lots of room because as the baby grows so does the diaper bag. I can store so much of Coltons stuff and all my purse essentials in mine. We also got Jason a "Man Bag". Its Eddie Bauer and it stores a lot as well. Both are always stocked so whoever has him for the day is prepared.
There is so much stuff that helps out everyday. As Colton grows so does the list of things I need to survive the day. Oh well, its all worth it!
