The two things that I think are essential for any pregnancy are BabyPlus
and the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr. Marc Weissbluth.
- BabyPlus. BabyPlus has done everything it claims to. I have such an easy baby. She latched right away and is a great eater to this day. She’s attentive, yet relaxed and very go-with-the-flow. She’s accomplished milestones earlier than most, which include rolling over at 3 1/2 months and sleeping 12 hours a night since she was 9 weeks old. She is honestly such an easy baby and I believe BabyPlus has played a huge part in that!
- Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child. This book has been a God-send. Seriously, we have followed it pretty closely and our daughter is the happiest baby you could ever meet. There have been times when she’s tried getting out of her sleep habits and we’ve followed the guide, and she’s back to normal the next day. I do recommend reading this while pregnant because you will actually retain the information. Don’t wait until you’ve already had your little one and your already sleep deprived.
Looking for that next perfect shower gift. The two mentioned above are definitely my recommendation!
