guest post : buy modern baby : sleep, sit, suck

posted on: Wednesday, January 11, 2012

While I'm away loving up the new baby space baby (yay!) we have some lovely bloggers from the most fabulous baby, craft and design sites dropping by to guest post. The first is Esther from the comprehensive site for beautifully designed products for wee ones, Buy Modern Baby Blog.

My philosophy when it comes to newborns is to keep it as SIMPLE as possible. The stage is so wonderful but so brief, so it's really not worth getting more geared up for it than you need to.

That being said, I reflect back on my months with newborns and have come up with my top basic picks. These are what I'd love to get if I had to do it all again.

First, newborns need a place to SLEEP. There are lots of different possible sleeping arrangements but I liked keeping my babies in their own little bed next to mine for the first few months. These three bassinets would be beautiful, cozy places for snoozing.

Second, newborns need a place to SIT. You can't hold them all day. At some point you need to eat or make a telephone call or... gasp! have a shower!

Finally, they are going to SUCK. Your #1 job as a newborn parent is to be sure your child eats and grows. This takes quite a bit of time throughout the day so you want to be comfortable.

So keep it simple. Have a place for your baby to sleep, sit and suck and you'll be all set!

  7. C’est devenu la mode, klima servisi maintenant, et c’est dégoutant, il y a de plus en plus de concours de ce genre lancé par de grands groupes, des eca kombi servisi grosses sociétés, avec une rémunération dérisoire. Vous, Kielo, vous ne doutez klima servisi pas une seconde ? mais quand de plus en plus de gens seront payés de la sorte, je vous souhaite un vrai boulot en CDI, ou un poste de fonctionnaire.demirdöküm kombi servisi

    Oui sûrement un bon coup marketing, et peut-être rien de plus.almanya sohbet
    On peut penser qu’il y a assez de forts en maths à la NASA pour klima servisi trouver une solution satisfaisante. Il est même possible webmaster forumları qu’ils l’aient déjà trouvée, de quand date la découverte du problème ? webmaster forumu
