You Don't Need Crazy shit for a Baby
Oh my god, I was so worried about getting all the baby gear I needed. I was going to be a single mom and was working reduced hours at my old job so money was super tight. You can have a happy baby, keep them safe and keep yourself out of debt or savings depletion. For the first few months all you need are:
Diapers and wipes. Find what you can on sale and bulk up, you'll be gong through 12 a day.
Onesies are great and easy for diaper changes. I didn't buy any newborn sizes and just started with 3 month sizes so he could grow into them as baby will outgrow newborn outfits in a few weeks.
You'll want blankets or burp cloths for all the baby spit up and spraying milk.
A safe and easy to carry infant car seat is a must. It's worth the extra money to get a infant car seat now and a convertible later on.
The Ergo is a life saver for a single mom. Trying to get anything done can be a nightmare so finding ways to keep a fussy baby happy, near you and still get things done is a sanity saver.
Britax stroller is a great sturdy stroller that is easy for one handed use with a busy life. I love this stroller and have taken it all over, from cars to airports to trails to malls. It rocks and I love how lightweight it is.
Waterproof Under Sheet Pad: oh my, ladies listen to your bossy mommyblogger here and buy lots of water proofing for your bed, the pack and play, the bassinet or anything else they'll be sleeping on.
That's it. Don't freak out over money and know you can get everything baby needs while staying on budget.
How to naturally induce labor at home
By the time you have hit 40th week you'll most likely be feeling both ready to give birth so you can sleep on your back or stomach again and a little scared and worried about the responsibility about to come your way. If you aren't scared of giving birth and becoming a mom then I'd really like to know the cocktail of drugs you're on (sharing is caring ladies).
Before taking any natural supplements, which remember can be quiet strong, drink plenty of water and make sure you've gotten plenty of rest. Always talk to your doctor and ask for advice.
Castor oil Oral supplement. Castor oil is an age old aide to speed up labor. The downside can be pooping yourself and a painful labor. The upside can be a quick and easy way to naturally and comfortably induce labor when your body is ready. Remember that no natural labor inducers will work unless you and your baby are ready for labor.
Spicy ghost pepper: spice can trigger labor without the diarrhea side effects of castor oil. Just know that what goes in must come out; post birth pepper poop can hurt. So be ready my fellow mamas with great numbing sprays and a water rinse.
Hard hour-long work out: being on your feet and getting your heart rate up can be a great way for you to naturally and simply induce labor. While pregnant I worked an extra long weekend a few days before I gave birth and I think that time running around, carrying heavy boxes and not resting sped up my labor. Pick a workout with a lot of squats and very little impact.
Moms need to be more than mothers, we need to be women and to entertain that part of ourselves. I love reading erotic romance novels whenever I have an extra 15 minutes.
Books I love are:
Meeting strangers on a train: "Ted meets Audrey on a train from Amsterdam to Paris. Her slender, tall blonde looks have Ted hooked, the only problem is she's working as an attendant and Ted would hate to make Audrey break any rules. Filled with hot, erotic scenes and a little spanking for naughty train attendants. A quick moving story Brett Roman's short story will pull you in and keep you going."
Dark Skye (Immortals After Dark): "Kresley Cole spins a sultry tale of a mighty warrior scarred inside and out and the beguiling sorceress with the power to heal him—or vanquish him forever."
Lick this pussy!!: I love the humor of this one, really it will make you laugh out loud.
We don't get to talk enough about how entertaining erotic material can be for women. We're complex and can be many things to lots of people. So this Holiday season embrace your desires and get reading. It is amazing how much reading can open up your mind and free you to be comfortable with your erotic self.
The Best Holiday Dresses for the Antisocial
It’s gotten to be the dreaded, fake smiles and too much pie season so you need a dress to make it all seem less like sociable season. I am an antisocial bat that lives in a cave. But even I love a good excuse to dress up and try to match my outfit to my kid’s. Holiday dresses can be a fun way to treat yourself, express your new style leanings each year and get out of your comfort bubble.
Every year I want to be a stylish Hepburn lady in a long plaid skirt. This skirt is timeless, comfy and will make you look like a New England prep who doesn't need to care.
A big part of a Holiday dress that will carry over year after year is that I don't end up looking like I spent 2 months on google finding the right piece. Simple, easy lines and soft fabric are big parts of a good outfit for me to feel comfortable.
A greatCape Dress will never go wrong on your frame. I love the idea of swooping into a party, cape at the ready and looking like pure style.
GUESS created a lovely Lace Cape Dress that would be fantastic for Thanksgiving through Hanukkah.
If you feel like showing off those curves, and those extra four slices of pumpkin pie, this Bodycon Dress (it has a cape too!) fits like a lovely glove. A formfitting dress can be great for pregnant ladies, it shows off our form without making us look like shacks with lumps in it.
A vintage classic wrap dress is so easy to wear. I love wraps because they make breastfeeding much simpler. If you're going to be breastfeeding while in your party dress look for necklines with stretch or a wrap dress that you can pull your breasts out of without having to lift your whole dress.
Natural Gas Relief For Babies
Infant gas pains hurt your baby and can deafen you from their cries. After each feed take the time to burp your infant, but remember that it may take quite a while before they get that burp up. Be patient and don't feel the need to over whack their little backs.
Holding them upright in your arms, against your chest and walking with them can help jiggle loose gas bubbles.
Over feeding can be a trigger for gas pains in the middle of the night so if your little sweetpea is gaining weight well you can ask your doctor about trying to use a pacifier in the wee morning hours to assist your little monkey in not over eating.
Dandelion leafs make an excellent Tea for relieving gas pains and sour tummies.
Parsley can be taken as a supplement or as a very green tasting tea to reduce gas as a preventative.
Catnip is a great herbal remedy for sleepless nights caused by the vicious cycle of gas pains waking a baby up and then being over tired keeping them up all night.
