So you have a new bundle of joy? Chances are that you’re full of bliss, and yet you can’t remember your last full night of sleep. Here are Five Essential Gadgets For New Moms designed to make mommying a bit easier, and perhaps even let you sleep peacefully!– when your little one lets you.
Five Essential Gadgets For New Moms
Once the little one is down for a nap, now is the time to take care of the household tasks that you need both hands to complete. Of course, keeping an ear or an eye on the little one is still a mom’s first priority. A number of audio and video versions are available, depending on how fancy a system you need.
This is a safe, painless and effective way to take a temperature reading, while snuggling your sick little one in your arms. Unlike an oral or rectal thermometer, there is no fighting when you place it in the canal, and the reading is instantaneous. Follow the directions on the box to ensure you’re taking a proper reading, and be sure to tell your doctor which body part you took the reading from. Proper temperatures vary from place to place, so a fever in one body part isn’t always a fever in another.
This horseshoe-shaped pillow is a wonderful asset to new moms. It works as support while nursing, and help propping your baby to first sit. It then becomes a chest prop to facilitate crawling, and ultimately becomes just a comfy pillow for your kids to play with. They come in a number of washable covers (a mommy’s necessity) for any aesthetic.
Wireless Home Security
If you’re finding that a new baby makes you anxious about whether you locked the doors, or staying awake for hours concerned about a spontaneous fire, then you need some reassurance. By choosing a wireless home security system like Lifeshield or Sloman Shield, moms can check on that bump downstairs or the weird smell by merely picking up their tablet and taking a peek. You can synchronize all of the different alarms in your home in one place, and make that limited sleep that you get peaceful and safe.
If your baby won’t sleep without someone rocking them, give yourself a break and try an auto-rocking cradle. You can safely bundle your little one while laying down, and choose your motion from rocking to circular. Colorful mobiles and mirrors adorn the top for the baby to watch, and you can choose between music and nature sounds to help baby escape to dream land, and you to have a break.
