Kamea had her two month doctor visit this week and my little baby is thriving! She is in the 75th percentile for her weight and 90th percentile for her length. She’s just perfect!

My Postpartum Must Haves

August 24th, 2010 by

I wanted to share some of my postpartum must haves. These are things I use all the time these days. This list isn’t all inclusive… for example, I’m not listing diapers, stroller, car seat, and stuff like that. This list is simply to highlight a few things that I find very helpful as a new mommy.

Organic cloth prefolds | Organic cloth wipes | *Organic blankets | Breastfeeding pillow | Baby Bottom Balm | Cloth wipe warmer | Rocker swing | Salt lamp | Foot Stool

*The brand I love is Pixel Organics. I bought mine on Amazon, but I don’t see them there now. I also love this one though (I have the veggie one)

By the way, if you’re interested in the Orbit Bassinet I talk about in the video, here it is.

UPDATE: From one of the comments below… here is another rocker option, eco friendly. (I haven’t tried it.) Thanks, Katie!

What are your postpartum must haves?

Organic Dolly and Play Mat For Kamea, Story Time, and Kamea at 6 1/2 Weeks

August 13th, 2010 by

It’s been a busy week. We’ve had a handful of people stop by to visit Kamea. Thankfully they weren’t offended by the “Mama Bear Rules” I emailed them prior to their visit. I can’t be too careful – lol.

Here’s a picture of Kamea from yesterday at 6 1/2 weeks. She’s growing so fast! I just cannot get enough of her. I want to hug her, kiss her, and play with her all day!

I’m reading to her everyday and we love our story time together. Today, we read, Hubert The Pudge (A Vegetarian Tale). This story was recommended to me in the comments section from my last post. I’m also showing her flash cards from Your Baby Can Read. I don’t know how the whole system will be, but it can’t hurt to show her flash cards while her little brain is soaking up new words every day.

I was delighted when I received the cutest gift in the mail from Lauren (here’s her blog). She sent Kamea an organic dolly (pictured right). How cute is that!?

I’m all about getting as many toys / clothes / baby items as organic when possible. Like this organic baby play mat for example (pictured left)… I bought one of these and I’m glad because when it’s tummy time, I’ve see her licking it. Glad it’s organic if she’s licking it! haha
