I finally had my dr appointment and this tiny one is safe and healthy!! Baby is even measuring a week ahead!! ⁣

It was so cute to watch our baby wiggling around. Seeing this little and knowing that as of that second he/she is safe and healthy made me really emotional.⁣

Thank you for all your prayers!! Also any name suggestions. We are stumped this time around. 😂

  • It's TUMMY TIME!
WHY is it necessary and what do you do if you have a TUMMY TIME HATER?
-
Tummy Time:
➡️helps to strengthen the neck and back
➡️allows for muscle stretching and mobility
➡️reduces the chance of plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome)
➡️encourages developmental milestones like rolling and crawling
-
What do you do if your baby just isn't having it?
💡 Understand that haters CAN learn to enjoy tummy time.
💡 Begin in the first days of your baby’s life or TODAY (It’s never too late to begin!).
💡Start slowly. Even 20-60 seconds at a time is great.
💡Make it a no-cry experience.
💡Practice for as long as your little one tolerates and then try again later.
💡Do it multiple times a day.
💡Start with laying your baby on your chest or across your lap.
💡Get down on the floor with your baby so you can see eye-to-eye. Sing, smile, and talk.
💡Use a boppy or rolled blanket to prop your little one up a bit.
💡Place toys or books close enough for your baby to see.
💡Find a non-breakable mirror as babies love their own reflection.
💡Don’t let it cause you stress. Make it fun. If today didn’t have much tummy time, try for more tomorrow.
-
When to do tummy time:
✅When baby is awake
✅Before and after diaper changes
✅When you are supervising baby 100%
-
When NOT to do tummy time:
❌In the first 10-15 minutes following a feeding. (Unless it’s upright on your chest as you are slightly reclined. This is a great option... esp for reflux babies.)
❌While baby is sleeping. Back is best for sleeping until baby can purposely roll. If baby falls asleep during tummy time, please roll her to her back.

  • Mum and Dad gave me some new 'healthy' treats to try today...one looked like a little green leafy thing that has tiny branches and the other was something Mum called Watery Melon which tasted better than it sounded. I gave them both my big tick of approval and already want MOARRR

  • ...and they had realistic expectations.
💕
Perhaps, like a fairy tale, we believe that love always looks like:
-Fancy dinners.
-Beautiful flowers.
-Weekend getaways.
-Sustained eye contact.
-Deep professions of love.
💕
Over time, I've learned the most beautiful love can look like:
-Unexpectedly cleaning up the kitchen for one another.
-Getting up with the kids while the other one sleeps.
-Drinking coffee on the couch together before the kids get up.
-Cooking dinner together (or picking up Chick-fil-a together)
-Making each other belly laugh.
-Always assuming the best in one another.

  • 💫 SLEEPY CUES 💫
Did you know your newborn can TELL YOU when he’s tired, when he needs a nap, and when he’s overtired?
Tag a new parent! This is such valuable information!
-
🤷🏼‍♀️Why are sleepy cues so important?? 🤷🏼‍♀️
Newborns speak to us through sleepy cues!
For newborns (12 weeks and younger), these cues help us prevent your baby from becoming overtired.
Once overtired, babies often struggle with falling asleep AND staying asleep. 😱😱😱An overtired little one can even appear to have colic-like symptoms!
-
In the newborn class, I’ll show you what to do when you see these cues!
So many parents tell me their babies, who they thought were suffering with colic, were so much happier after implementing the tips from the newborn class simply by preventing an overtired baby!
-
What sleepy cues do you notice with your baby?
Were you one that thought you had a colicky baby and it turned out to be overtired symptoms?
If a new parent is on the fence about getting the newborn class, why should they just go ahead and take it? ☺️❤️

  • Unsere Maus 🐭 ist jetzt mit ihren 9 Wochen 57cm groß und wiegt 4950g. Damit haben wir fast die 5kg-Marke geknackt 😄💪🏼 ich freue mich nach wie vor über jedes Gramm, nachdem sie zu Beginn solche Schwierigkeiten mit dem Zunehmen hatte. Unsere Hebamme hat uns allerdings ermahnt, wir sollten sie öfter auf den Bauch legen und den Nacken trainieren 🏋️‍♀️ das mag sie aber so gaaaar nicht 😩 aber nützt alles nix, da müssen wir durch. Ansonsten plagt sie lästiger Milchschorf (oder Kopfgneis?). Habt ihr  Tipps, wie man diesen lindern kann? Laut unserer Hebamme hilft nur Öl oder irgendeine „stinkende“ Salbe 😄

  • 🤍 Ach kleine Maus. Gute 2 Monate bist du nun alt und es gibt noch immer Momente, in denen ich denke ...krass..du hast ein Baby. Es gibt sogar Momente, in denen ich sie „vergesse“, also nicht an sie denke. Und dann denke ich : „Hoppla, du bist ja Mama“ 😅 man lebt 27 Jahre lang einzig mit der Verantwortung für einen selbst. Und plötzlich ist da ein Würmchen, dass einen zu 100% braucht. Das ist einfach so crazy, dass es dauert, bis das komplett im Hirn ankommt. 
Der Körper allerdings will das mal so gar nicht leugnen und erinnert mich mehrmals täglich an die Schwangerschaft und die Geburt. Ich wurde schon öfter gebeten mal einen postpartum body post zu veröffentlichen. Aber neeee, soweit bin ich einfach noch nicht. Ich wäre es gerne, aber es wäre schlichtweg gelogen, einen Post mit den Worten „ich bin stolz auf meinen Körper....“ zu beginnen. Die Anzeige auf der Waage stagniert seit 4 Wochen! Ja, es ist toll, was der Körper geleistet hat, aber ich will trotzdem meinen alten Körper zurück. Das ist nun mal so. Und Ja, es gibt Wichtigeres, und ja, es geht „schlimmer“, aber ich für mich selbst bin nicht zufrieden. Und ich brauche diese Unzufriedenheit auch, um meinen Popo hoch zu bekommen und etwas dagegen zu tun. Kommende Woche geht der Rückbildungskurs los. Alles ein wenig verspätet durch den Kaiserschnitt. Drückt mir die Daumen, dass meine derzeitige Motivation anhält 😄🍀👍🏼🤍

  • Let’s talk about SOUND MACHINES!! 🌊
•
Did you know that silence is bizarre to babies? It's true! Your little one spent about 40 weeks inside a womb that is LOUD every moment.
•
What sound do they hear inside the womb? 
SHHHHHH! It's the sound of blood rushing through the placenta! That's a familiar sound to your new baby. A sound machine can create a similar "safe" sound any time your baby is fussy or needs sleep.
•
Here are some common questions I’m asked about the sound machine:
•
➡️What sound should I play?
Low deep sounds- ocean or white noise!
•
➡️How loud should it be?
About the volume of a running shower.
•
➡️How long should the sound last?
Make sure you get one that stays on for the entire night or entire nap. Shutting off after 30-50 minutes can actually cause baby to awaken.
•
➡️Should the sound machine be in the crib?
The nightstand is best. The one pictured is there just for the photo!
•
➡️How and when should I wean it?
I highly recommend using it for AT LEAST the first two years-- it truly does help with sleep. If you’d like to wean it after age 2, gradually turn the sound down a tiny bit every other night until it’s no longer audible. But, keeping it is fine too.

(🚨GIVEAWAY CLOSED! Congratulations to our winner, @owenfairchild 🚨)

If you have a baby sleep question, I try to answer as many as I can! Just be sure to throw a 🙋🏻 emoji before your question so I can find them mixed in with the giveaway entries!
