Olivia is one week old.

What has helped me survive week one as a new mom?

so far:
-my mom
-a man who changes diapers
-nipple creams with lanolin
-medela breast pump
-medela nipple shield
-boppy pillow for breastfeeding
-comfy pajamas
-hot showers
-600 mg motrin (c-section) also vicodin but i try not to take that

i really love:
-kissaluvs size zeros are perfect for newborns as diapers
-homemade wipes with warm water for diaper change
-aden + anais muslin wraps

I think naps should be right under your mom

I found your blog a few weeks ago and wanted to say congratulations to you - and I LOVE your writing! I was in your shoes almost a year ago are in for the time of your life!

I wanted to tell you that I sometimes put a few drops of tea tree oil in my wipes water. It smells so clean and nice. ALSO - once your baby's skin starts to peel - olive oil works great as a moisturizer =)
