Sweet Dreams Are Made of These

Well, it is hard to believe it has been a little over a month since we welcomed our third son into the world. We have all enjoyed soaking up every minute of this little guy. He is already such a blessing and has completed our family.

Our newest addition has made me start thinking about how different you are as a parent to your first than you are to your third. For our oldest, we registered for everything under the sun and quickly realized we didn't need most of it. Our third, who is just as loved, is wearing all his brothers' old clothes. However, there is one item we bought for Walter that we didn't have for my other boys, and it has been a game changer. My husband and I chose to co-sleep with all of our children while they are little. It's not for everyone, but it feels so natural to me to have your baby within arms reach. Not to mention, it makes middle of the night nursing sessions so much easier. We all know one of the biggest newborn challenges can be getting them to sleep without someone holding them, but Fisher Price now has a solution. The Fisher Price Deluxe Newborn Rock 'n Sleeper is amazing! It perfectly cradles a baby, so they feel as if they are being held. The slight incline is great for helping with any tummy issues baby may have, and the vibration provides the perfect amount of movement. When I first put Walter in it, I will make it rock slightly until I know he is good and asleep. He absolutely loves it and sleeps so well in it. Plus, it makes me rest easier too because I can put it right beside the bed and check on him often. I position it so his head is the opposite direction of mine, so I can easily see his face. I wish this was around for my other boys, but I am thankful to have it now. Trust me, it is $60 well spent!
