Warning…

Seeing as we are not traveling at the moment and the only thing on my mind is my constantly growing mid-section, this blog will be temporarily hijacked for the next 5 months. Yep, it’s baby time. Okay, let’s get real it will probably be hijacked indefinitely. Frankly, I don’t think the three people who actually read this thing will mind. I can promise you it’s not going to go full-on turbo baby blog because that’s just not our style. And, no one really wants to read one more post about sore nipples or stretch marks. Oh, and they’re out there. In the past four months I’ve read my fair share of baby product reviews, diaper debates, the guilt of working mothers, lactation problems, and a plethora of other posts about the joys of parenthood. It’s the most studying I’ve done on any subject since college and I’m just getting started.

It’s kind of funny when you stop to think about all the prep work that goes into bringing a baby into the world now days. Don’t get me wrong, it’s fun prep work but women have been having babies long before The Bump app was around to tell us when to expect bleeding gums and give recommendations for cocoa butter (a very helpful app for first-time preggos by the way).The options for products, books, vitamins, baby do-dads and even pregnancy apps is overwhelming. At the end of the day, don’t these little people just need a place to sleep, some diapers to poop in and food? I hope so! It probably doesn’t help that I’m not a shopper by nature, so it’s hard to even know where to start.

I do know this–if I was forced out of my comfy warm digs into a strange new place, I’d appreciate a nice place to sleep. So, I think we will start there, with a crib. Any recommendations for cribs? What’s the best way to dive into the baby shopping bonanza?

Cheers to breast pump shopping,

J

  1. This won’t be a very helpful tip, I’m afraid, but I find that there’s SO MUCH advice out there when it comes to parenting, with moms downright meddling with other moms’ lives. I find it better to just trust my gut. (When it comes to travel planning, I am much, much more detail-obsessed.) The human race has been doing this for quite a long time — I’m sure what our children need should somehow be hardwired into our instincts by now. But that’s just me. 🙂 Best of luck, and congratulations!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! You are so right it’s the one thing we should be able to trust our gut about. Love your about page by the way. That’s just the type of travelers we are. I too am constantly yearning for that midnight train. 😉
