My mom came to stay with us all last week and it was wonderful! Having an extra person to soothe a fussing baby in the middle of the night made a huge difference. Also enjoyed having a hot drink served to me in the morning and a few shopping trips. Moms are so good at pampering!
In the baby department…I can’t believe how much they go to the bathroom! We have gone through so many diapers already and 2 whole boxes of baby wipes in less than two weeks. My sister-in-law gave me a recipe for homemade baby wipes and they are working fabulously! Below is the recipe.
-Cut a roll of paper towels in half. (I use the rolls that have half sheet cuts)
-Use an 8 cup round container with lid
-Mix 2 cups water, 3 Tbsp baby oil, and 2 Tbsp baby wash in the container
-Put your cut roll of towels in the bowl and then immediately lift out and put the dry end in.
-Pull out the brown tubing from the middle
-Pull towels from the center
I also made an Amy Butler coin purse. It will be nice to throw on my wrist when I have to run somewhere quick. (I have found that having a baby requires taking a few more items with you when on the go.)
