We love this carrier for so many reasons: great ergonomic design, fun colors that my husband could live with, and a forward facing feature that my baby loves! When he needs a nap, I still carry him facing me.

Every new mama needs an awesome diaper bag and we love Ju-Ju-Be and their newest collection of black and white prints makes you feel less like you are carrying a diaper bag and more like you are carrying a purse.  

7- Nosefrida Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator

This doctor developed and doctor recommended nasal aspirator is amazing at keeping babies naturally snot free. Ingeniously simple Swedish design features a tube that is placed against the nostril (not inside). Parents use their own suction to draw mucus out of their child's nose.  Sounds a little gross, but it is amazing!

One of our favorite classic toys, it skwishes and returns to its original shape.  Perfect for little hands.  

9- The Black and White Book

Who doesn't love a good book? This board book is based on the simplicity of objects outlined in black & white that can be easily recognized by babies in their daily surroundings. This is one of those rare books that will interest even a newborn.

One of our favorite blankets ever!  The double layer cotton knit makes it super soft and we love the gender neutral designs.

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the leaves, stems, seeds, bark, roots, and flowers of plants and have a wide range of physical and emotional uses, including supporting a pregnant and laboring mother. DōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade (CPTG) essential oils work great and Jennifer is here to give you some recipes to use as you prepare for labor.  Always consult your doctor or midwife when using essential oils during pregnancy and labor.

BLACK PEPPER

Benefits:

Black Pepper has a warming effect to the touch and can help sooth anxious feelings.

To Use:

Have your doula, midwife or partner mix 1-2 drops in 10-12 drops of fractionated coconut oil in their hands and massage it on your hips during back labor for a soothing warming sensation.

WILD ORANGE

Benefits:

This essential oil possesses stimulating and purifying qualities, making it ideal for supporting healthy immune system function when seasonal threats are high. Wild Orange contains powerful antioxidants that help maintain overall health. Diffusing Wild Orange will energize and uplift the mind and body while purifying the air.

 To Use:

Diffuse 2-3 drops during labor for an energizing effect.  

If no diffuser is available, place 1 drop in your palm, rub your hands together, cup them over your nose and mouth, and inhale.

LAVENDAR, FRANKINCENSE & HELICHRYSUM

Benefits:

These three oils have incredible properties that help our skin. All are known to help reduce skin irritation and imperfections, which make them perfect for preparing the body for labor and facilitating recovery postpartum.

To Use:

Add 10 drops of each essential oil to 2oz of fractionated coconut oil in a glass container or glass spray bottle to apply with perineal massage daily starting around 37 weeks.  The remainder can be used postpartum after daily peri washes. Using a glass spray bottle is the easiest way to apply postpartum.

Add 10 drops of each to 1/2c of raw shea butter and 1/2c of melted coconut oil. Whip together in a mixer, and apply to your growing itchy belly as needed.

Feel free to contact Jennifer, as she specializes in making each of these custom blends for expecting mothers. You can find out more about doTERRa essential oils and purchase undiluted CPTG oils here or email for further information oilybabies@gmail.com

Cradle Cap Cure

Almost all first time moms freak out the first time they discover cradle cap on their perfect newborn baby. They want to know what caused it and how to get rid of it.  We've tried all the tricks and thought we'd pass a little of our knowledge on to you!

What Is Cradle Cap?
It is a harmless skin condition on babies that looks like flaky, crusty scale-like patches that are often yellowish.  It isn't painful and wasn't caused by poor hygiene or dry skin (so don't beat yourself up as a mom because you didn't cause it).  And IT'S TEMPORARY!

How to Treat It?
It will eventually disappear on its own, but if you can't resist picking at it (don't just pick it, you could cause sores or other conditions if you ), you can treat it with coconut oil.  The best part, it's all natural and it smells good too!  

coconut oil for cradle cap

1- Rub coconut oil on baby's head and massage deeply into scalp.  Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes (longer if it is really bad) to soften the scales.

2-  Use a fine tooth comb or soft bristle brush to gently remove them.  The hospital gave me an awesome sponge bristle brush that worked great!  

3-  Wash baby's head as you normally would to remove all the loose flakes.

Infant Congestion

Congestion in infants can make everyone miserable.  Here are a few tools to help treat your infant's congestion to ensure your little one can rest a little more comfortably:

1- Humidifier-  A cool mist humidifier will add moisture to the air which can help thin the mucus and ease the congestion.

2- Saline Drops- These natural drops moisturize the nasal passages and flush dust and irritants to get baby breathing easier.

3- Baby Comfy Nasal Aspirator - This is the most incredible congested baby product you will ever use.  It uses your own suction to remove mucus from your baby's airways without damaging delicate mucous membranes. It sounds gross, but it definitely works!  It is significantly more effective than the bulb syringe because your natural lung suction is so much stronger. Plus it is way more sanitary.  Here's what the inside of your bulb syring looks like: 

The design of the aspirator eliminates any possibility of contact with mucus and germs. It comes with two nose tips: standard and newborn. There are NO FILTERS to buy, it just uses a tissue!

BONUS: Breastfeed as much as possible to help keep baby hydrated.  You can also put breastmilk in their eyes or nose to help clear up any infections

Baby Comfy Nose Giveaway

 

From practicality to style, finding the right diaper bag can be difficult.  Here's our top 3 favorites:

1- Petunia Picklebottom Boxy Backpack:

It's large enough to fit all the daily essentials without being too large! It has plenty of inside and outside pockets to help keep everything organized! We love the built in changing station and the glazed coated canvas exterior with water-resistant lining makes it easy to clean.  Plus, who doesn't love the multiple carrying options.  These bags are great quality and stylish as well.

2- JuJuBe Be Prepared Diaper Bag:

We've been long time fans of JuJuBe, in case you couldn't tell from our multiple giveaways.  This bag has lots of storage, light colored linings to help you actually find what you stash in there, and instulated pockets to keep things cold.  Two of our favorite features are the luggage feet  for when you’re dumping the bag on the ground and crumb drains so that junk just falls right out of the bag.  Yes you read that right, crumb drains!  This print is our absolute favorite!

 

 

3-  Lily Jade Elizabeth Diaper Bag:

The bags with the most longevity aren't the ones with the most pockets or the the cleverest extras, they are the ones that double as a bag you will actually use long after your out of the diaper bag stage.  That's why we love Lily Jade!  We love the soft leather and the multiple carrying options: backpack or crossbody.  Each bag comes complete with a detachable, washable Baby Bag organizer and changing pad.  The price tag is a little higher but you will definitely get your use out of the bag for years to come.

4- OiOi 2 Pocket Hobo Diaper Bag

The OiOi Diaper Bags are quickly becoming one of our favorites!  They are stylish, yet practical.   The very durable materials, both inside and outside the bag, are water resistant (because something always spills). Plus they’ve also got metal feet on the bottom of the bag to keep it from wearing out.  The external pockets help keep things organized and in their place and it comes with a very needed wet bag!

 

 


 

 

How do their fingernails always get dirty?
 
It's amazing how much dirt can get can get under those little fingernails even after you bathe them.  That dirt can come from a few places, but the main culprits are from baby making fists his fingers to his palms they collect the dirt/sweat/fuzz and grabbing his or her own dead skin.

Here's how to get rid of that dirt:

1- TRIM-The first step in keeping baby fingernails clean is to keep them trimmed. Baby's nails grow quickly, so plan to trim them at least weekly.  
 

2- BRUSH- Sometimes even after you trim them, a little dirt remains.  So you need a brush. Wet a soft toothbrush or nail brush in warm water and gently work the bristles against the dirt.
