The last time I have given birth to children has been a really long time ago. I clearly remember it like it was yesterday. I was making a big big list months in advance of all the stuff that I needed to get. But you need so much stuff when you are having a baby that you will always forget a lot of what you really end up needing. So for that reason I continuously kept adding more things to the list until the list became really big.
Everything that I could think of was on that list. But then I did an internet search for baby stuff lists and I quickly figured out that there was much more stuff to be added to my list of baby stuff. It turns out that all the stuff I had left out of the list was in itself a bigger list than all the stuff I had already put on my list!
There is this really great website on the web that is called Baby Got Stuff, which I highly recommend to all young mommies out there. The webmaster of the site is a woman named Paisley, who herself has had two babies, both of which are girls. She runs a really great blog with all sorts of neat information for young mommies. There is a lot of stuff to buy for a newborn infant, and Paisley has the low down on this. On her blog, she mostly focuses about all the bare essentials. For instance, she discusses various kinds of cribs and baby food makers on her blog.
But there is also a section dedicated to car seats. I would say that Paisley is a pretty clever girl that really knows what sort of stuff is important in a fresh mommy’s life. The last time I had kids was a long time ago, but I would definitely want to learn everything under the sun from Paisley. She really is great! Thanks to her own experiences as a mom as well as having done her own research before she even had children, she is pretty well informed. That woman has read a book or two, I guarantee it.
She has a really informative page on her site, where she discusses how important it is that you feed your baby all the best nutrients that you can get your hands on. When it comes to nutrients, you can not be holding back. Babies grow up fast and their bodies are screaming for all the right foods. Babies are pretty weak and they are very vulnerable. They require the best care in the world in order to reach their maximum potential. To not properly feed your baby would be child abuse, which is illegal in most places that I know of. Thankfully, feeding your baby all the required nutrients has become a lot more easy in recent times thanks to the marvel of modern technology.
If you are looking for a good way to feed your baby all the healthiest stuff under the sun, then you might want to go for a baby food maker appliance. These things are so handy, that you will be asking yourself how you managed to live without one for a whole lifetime. Check out all the best ones here. Back in the days, I just used some default blender from some brand that was popular back then… I don’t even remember the name. And that blender sure did a nice job of pureeing baby food, but alas… it did not have a bottle warmer like some of these baby food makers these days do. Looking back on it all, a bottle warmer would sure have been convenient.
Then there is another web page on her blog which is all about the importance of getting your kid a good place to sleep, because rest is very important. I would say that rest and food are both at the top of the list when it comes to baby care. You can not expect to raise a healthy baby without any of those two. A newborn requires all the right foods in combination with plenty of rest in order to grow to their maximum potential. There is no reason to put up with stunted growth in this modern day civilization we are currently living in.
But you know… not all cribs are of equal quality. Some of them are much better than others. Some are a lot more safe than others are, for example. I used to have an old fashioned crib that had one of those sides that could drop open on a single side. These are considered to be a health hazard because kids have seriously been hurt with these things. For that reason, they are now banned from retail. If I had realized this up front, then I would probably never have placed my own baby in such a dangerous crib. Thankfully, nothing ever did go wrong.
Paisley is one of the most fascinating mommies I have come across in a long time. I sincerely hope she will write more stuff on her blog in the coming weeks. I enjoyed reading her writings and would love to read more! My kids are already growing up and going to school, so I don’t really need any more info on how to raise babies. I do not plan on having more in the near future (or the distance future for that matter). I think the ones I have already more than enough. I’m not sure I could handle more.
I do, however, enjoy reading about this sort of stuff because it really does take me back in time and I love remembering raising my kids. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Sometimes, I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I really feel nostalgic about it from time to time. But the world is going to keep on turning, so I have no choice but to move on. I’m sure Paisley is going to do a great job raising her kids. I will be checking up on her site to see how she is doing.
