We are exactly one month out from Baby G’s due date!! Wow! I literally cannot wait.
During my fist update, I felt totally overwhelmed by the list of to-dos. But once I wrote them out and prioritized, I feel like we’ve made big strides!
- We did a HUGE grocery haul to stock up on non perishables and items for my make and freeze meals that I am starting this week!
- Last week I got my whooping cough shot. I won’t lie, it kind of hurt much like a tetnis shot does, but I figured this is a drop in the bucket for what is to come. 😉
We also got our pregnancy photos back! This weekend I want to print a couple out and place them in frames before time gets away from me. You know how that happens.
Another BIG item was ordering and installing Baby G’s closet. There was a bit of a hiccup in the process, but now the closet is up, installed, and filled with baby goodies. I promise to do a little nursery tour soon, it is pretty much complete and looks so beautiful.
Over the last few weeks we have made some good strides on the to-do list (as you will see). But what I am realizing is there is only so much prep you can do for a baby. A lot of the learning is on the spot and well, there is little I can do about that right now. What I have been doing is talking to moms to get their tips and suggestions and grabbing those items that are going to be staples when the baby arrives.
This year, Dr. Brown’s is celebrating World Breastfeeding Month by recognizing the efforts of moms, including expecting moms like you!. One lucky reader will receive a Gia Pillow, pillow cover and an assortment of breastfeeding accessories for you and baby!
Nursing pillows are definitely going to become a staple for me and I am so excited to try out this pillow.
The Gia was designed by a lactation consultant specifically to help with feedings, digestion and reduce reflux with your baby. It is also a different shape than most nursing pillows, which allows for more customization in positions – making life a little easier!
While you can use the pillow without the cover, they also offer some cute options!
To win your very own Gia Nursing Pillow and cover of your choice, just leave a comment below telling me which cover you would like the most.
