My Personal Tips for a New or Expecting First Time Parents. #tommeetippee

It feels like just a few months ago, I was having my little Edward. He is now, 20 months old yet it feels so fresh in my mind still. He was my happy surprise baby, we were not trying at all to get pregnant. God already knew what he had in store for us. Super excited, we were to add another baby to our little family. I just wasn’t sure,  how my life would be with my little Ashton and Edward together they are 16 months apart. Was I going to catch a break? Was I going to get enough sleep? All these questions would run through my head. Three kids later, and i’m still learning as I go. However, I do have some tips to share with you. 

1. DONT try to be Super Woman/Dad – We are parents and we want to do it all, (Clean, laundry, cook, shower, bake cookies)  God gave us that will, but you will burn yourself out and not be happy. (Trust, I’ve done it). Take it one day at time. If you see that your dishes are piling up, don’t sweat it. As long as you’re still able to walk in there, you should be fine. lol 🙂 in all honesty though chorus are never-ending. 

 2. Sleep when baby Sleeps – The nurses at the hospital and my mother would tell me this. I of course, didn’t listen and like I said in tip 1. You will burn yourself. Your baby needs you to be 100% as well as your spouse. Have you all ever heard of that saying? “If mama ain’t happy ain’t nobody happy”? I live by that moto, its so true. So rest, please rest. You need it. 

3. Help Please – Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Whether its a close friend coming over to do your laundry or you’re needing to take a quick shower and need to call your mother-in-law over. Don’t feel  bad for asking or getting help. More then likely they know how you are feeling without you saying anything. So, just embrace it and take advantage of it. 

4. Baby Necessities – Having the right baby essentials is key. I tried so many bottles, before finding the right one. Tommee Tippee bottles are, our go to bottles and sippys. If you’re breastfeeding then you may love their breast pump, or if bottle feeding you for sure will love their “Baby Keurig and Bottles“. The baby keurig is pretty amazing for first time parents, it makes baby bottles for you, you really can’t screw it up. Bottles are small and easy to hold, and have a soft nipple. Overall making them the best bottle to date for us. 

5. Enjoy the moments – “The days are long but the years are short” enjoy every single moment with them. Cherish these moments for once they are older, they will be gone doing their own thing. So enjoy them. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Way’s I soothe little Edward #tommeetippeemommee

My little Edward is a cuddler, I think it all started when I breastfed him. Fast forward 18 months, he is now weaned but still loves to cuddle for naps and when we are getting ready for bedtime. He drinks almond milk in his Tommee Tippee Bottle, with a little bit of ovaltine. This is one way I soothe him. 

Another way, is massaging his little back. He will grab my hand and place it on his back, a way of letting me know he wants me to massage him. I believe all kids want to feel a parents warm in order to feel safe. Speaking from experience, all my kids have different way of showing that.

Another thing that soothes my little Edward is placing one of his hands between my breast, I also think this has to do with being a breast-fed baby. He holds his bottle with one hand and places the other on my breast. It’s the cutest thing ever. (I’m sure all my breastfeeding moms, can relate) 

Tommee Tippee has sold over over 4 million pacifiers. They help soothe babies, they come in super cute prints and colors. As many of you may know by now. Tommee Tippee is my favorite brand for these things. Their bottles are the only ones the boys ever took, all the other ones they did not like. 

Some fun facts about Tommee Tippee Pacifiers are : 

  • Symmetrical Orthodontic Shape
  • Reversible Silicone Nipple design
  • BPA FREE 

These new pacifiers are a newer version of the older style. They come 0-3 months, 0-6 months and 6-18 month.  The nipple is soft, I can see how a baby would love this. My sister-in-law is having a girl. YAY!!! So I’ve been buying her some Tommee Tippee bottles and Pacifiers little by little. These will be added for new baby. I can’t wait to hear, how my niece will like these. Everything Tommee Tippee is amazing to me, so I’m sure she will take them just fine. PicMonkey Collage

Tommee Tippee 4 Favorite Products

1. Bottles : These bottles are my favorite. I tried so many with Ashton, expensive ones, at that.

They have a Flex and Stretch Ripples, the nipple is soft but firm enough for baby to transition easily from a mothers breast to a bottle. It’s size is so perfect, whether baby is a newborn or toddler the bottle is comfortable for mom and baby. 

2. Milk Feeding Bib Milk Feeding Bibs have a unique dribble catcher that absorbs moisture, helping prevent rashes on baby’s sensitive skin. It’s super soft and cuddly around the neck, easy to put on (velcro). Protects your babies clothes from getting wet and all in all a super soft and comfy bib.
