3 things: New Born Essential 0-3 months || The Cuddle Blog

I know that there are many other things you need at this stage but I am tagging this "Essential" because somethings are more crucial than other things. In the first 3 months of your babys life I call it "Survival mode" most especially if you are a first time mum- because you are just getting starting this new experience and adjusting your life to accommodate a new baby and it is never easy. Here are 3 things that I think are essential to making it a lot more easier.

  1. Nursing Pillow; It's just amazing the difference this pillow makes when you are trying to breastfeed. When you are a sleep deprived new mother with a baby trying to get the hang of breastfeeding and wanting to feed all the time this is a life saver, the support. Oh the support. Your arms will thank you. 
  2. Burb Cloth: Spit Up is REAL and boy is it disgusting!!! Don't get me wrong, I love my baby but that love doesn't extend to what comes out of his mouth.
    You will need the burb cloths, it will save you many times. Have it handy and have a backup for the backup! Thank me later.
  3. Baby Pain reliever: I think the pain reliever is essential because your baby will be taking immunisation injections back to back in the first 3 months and they get so cranky afterwards from the pain. Not a pretty sight.
     Having the pain reliever handy even before you go for the injections go a long way for them. 

What else do you think is a New born essential?

Pregnancy Diary 5: Birth Story || The Cuddle Blog

"March 10,2017 37 Weeks 
So,  we're officially going to meet you next week! Incredible. "Just like that?" is the question I asked the doctor. This is not what or how I envisioned it but I am grateful, very grateful. At the end of the day what's most important is that we are all safe and not at risk
These are part of the words I wrote in my pregnancy journal less than a week to meeting my little one. I did my antenatal care in a different hospital and husband and I decided to have our delivery on another hospital, I had to register close to my Edd. I started going to this new hospital and because of my height it was recommended to do a pelvis examination. This is not done routinely but from a certain height they recommend this scan so they can know what they're working with. 
This was the timeline. I went in for my regular appointment on a Friday, I was asked to do the CT Pelvimetry scan the next Friday before I came for my appointment which I did. I gave…

Out of body Mumsperience || The Cuddle Blog


Yes! I just coined the word.

It is every experience unique to Mums! 
I had an out of body experience. Oh No! I had an out of body Mumsperience. It was less then one month after I had Cuddles and he was on a 2 hours eat-sleep schedule. He woke up sometime in the middle of the night this fateful day and He started crying, I picked him up and just kept rocking him but he just won't stop crying. I was beginning to wonder what could be wrong with him when my husband woke up and asked me

Wow, it's just amazing how it felt so far but right not, it's here. We have just 7 weeks to go and honestly, it's getting more difficult by the day as everywhere hurts. Lower abdomen, tight tummy, really everything... walking, bending... SIGH
I'm just trying to keep  a positive outlook and attitude towards everything. The last doctors appointment was indicating that you are not in the right position yet, so I have been bouncing on the birthing ball and rolling on it as I hear it help encourage babies to turn. I am trusting God that it will all workout. I will know by next week"
