What's In My Diaper Bag 2.0

I previously made a What's In My Diaper Bag last year before my son arrived. What I thought would be in my diaper bag! you can check that out here. Looking back, I actually don't hold all of those items in that bag! So, I have decided to make a new 2.0 version of the real deal of what goes on inside my diaper bag. I decided to make the switch from a backpack to a shoulder bag/purse looking diaper bag.

5 remedies to help YOU sleep

When my son was a few months old, and I was deep in the midst of sleep-deprivation & “mommy fog”. Lucas was still sleeping a lot better than most newborns. I would only have to get up once, but most of the time twice or three times for 3 months. That being said, I don’t do well on broken sleep & I cried. A lot. Lucas was a good sleeper relativity early. We think it’s because of his weight! He’s always been in the 97th percentile. When he finally did start sleeping well, I discovered something — he could sleep through the night, but I couldn’t! Suddenly, was the one waking up multiple times each night, unable to fall back asleep, while my son slept peacefully in his crib. I would constantly check the video monitor each time I woke up.

I did previously make one about Lucas's transition when he was a wee wee baby. You can read that here.

New Mom: The Expectations

Before having children I feel like we all have had expectations of maternity leave/ postpartum time off. We’re going to be that Pinterest mom who goes to the gym, has time to be glam often, make every meal from scratch, be a crunchy mom. (Nothing wrong with being a crunchy mom! I try myself) ♥️ Until reality hits you in the teeth!

#2 Postpartum Update: 6 months.

I am 6 months postpartum,

Mentally: I am in a very good place. I 100% believe being on the verge of postpartum depression was because of the weather. It effects me a lot & being cooped inside didn't help. Once I started getting out & meeting with other moms for coffee etc my mental health went from me thinking "how am I going to get out of this.." to no depression, no anxiety. However, 5 months postpartum I had a terrible bout of health anxiety for about 2.5 weeks.
