In Serious Nesting Mode

This morning I couldn’t sleep in past 7am, so I came downstairs and went onto A.mazon and D.iapers and ordered all sorts of things we need for Roo.  My nesting is in full effect!

  • Nasal Aspirator – the one that you suck the end of and the boogers come out – sounds so disgusting but apparently works really well
  • Rectal Thermometer
  • Nail Scissors – I heard that while they sound more intimidating than nail clippers that scissors are actually easier to control and there are fewer nicks on your baby’s fingers (yikes!)
  • M.ustela Hair and Body Wash as well as Lotion – a friend uses this and her baby smells so yummy!
  • Nursing Pads from L.ansinoh – I got a small pack because there is much debate whether these or the M.edela ones are better, so I decided to try these ones first and if I don’t like them, I’ll try the other
  • B.ella B N.ipple Cream
  • Br.avado Silk Seamless Nursing Bra – I really need some new bras so I decided to go with a general sizing bra in hopes that it’ll fit once my milk comes in
  • Infant hair brush and comb set
  • Soothie pacifier by A.vent – I don’t know if we’ll use it but I decided that I’d rather have it and be prepared than not have it and wish that I did!

I really wanted to buy a night light but the one that I want is sold out so I need to wait for it to come in again.

I already have gotten the “big” gear and so I’m starting to focus on the little stuff!  This is actually fun!

One of those baby planning emails that I get told me a few weeks ago that I need to start packing my hospital bag.  WHAT?!  Already?  I’m not ready but I’ve started to think about it.  This morning, I also placed an order for non-slip socks for the hospital.  I think I’ve got the rest pretty much here at home (other than snacks for MH and post-partum granny pa.nties, which I need to go buy) and just need to choose a bag and put everything in it.

Of the “little” things that babies require, moms who’ve been there and done that, is there anything that I’m missing that I should purchase before Roo arrives?

Oh!  We ordered our glider yesterday.  I found an independent baby store in Bellevue and found a B.est Chair glider that is under $500 and comfortable for me.  I let MH choose the fabric that he liked the best so that he could feel a part of the process (not one that I would have chosen but it doesn’t really matter to me).  So, we have all of the major nursery items that Roo needs for her room.  We’ll make a final decision on which shade of lavender to paint her room today.  I got a call yesterday from the delivery company and Roo’s dresser/changing table arrives later this week.

It’s all coming together!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
