These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things
This past weekend was interesting to say the least. Thomas was really congested and it seemed like he was having a hard time breathing. He had a really hard time sleeping Saturday night and by Sunday afternoon he wasn’t sounding any better. So, we ended up taking him to Vandy to be checked out by a doctor. Since it was Sunday our doctor’s office was closed (they’re open Monday – Saturday!) and the Vandy walk-in clinic only sees babies once they are 6 weeks old. He got his nose suctioned out and we have continued to do saline drops and suctioning. I am grateful to be able to say that he is now breathing much easier – and is able to sleep! This is a video of Thomas breathing this morning and he sounds so much better than he did yesterday. And please notice his ginormous checks
But instead of dwelling on the ick and pitifulness of a 3 week old with a virus – I thought I would share some of my favorite baby products.
This has 5 small containers that all snap together and it is perfect for measuring out formula in advance either for night time or to take in the diaper bag. Best part? You don’t have to always use all 5 – you can take just as many as you need. Each container also has a removable pour spout so all the formula goes into the bottle. It’s also great for bringing along snacks for Will.
Will loved the bouncy seat and so does Thomas. Thomas does some of his best sleeping in the bouncer and loves the vibration – we already need to put new batteries in it and Thomas is only 3 weeks old!
We got Thomas a swaddle blanket because we thought it would help him sleep better if his arms weren’t flying all over every time he was “startled.” But, he hated being wrapped up like a mummy. We still use and like the blanket we just wrap it around him under his arms and it keeps him very cozy at night.
