What’s in your baby’s Medicine Cabinet?

I though that having a baby medicine cabinet would be great to have separate from our (adult) medicine cabinet. You really have to be super careful what you give to your baby not all is good to give and having it separate is the best option. My baby is 8 months already but I started her medicine cabinet since she was born. Being a new mom is super important for me to do it right the first time so this was on the top of my list.

My medicine cabinet include gripe water and gas relief drops for colic’s and trouble with burping. It also included Butt Paste for diaper rash along with some q-tips for putting the diaper rash in case my fingers where in the kitchen cooking. Q-tips are also for her ears to clean them and also to give her a little massage when she was teething. This takes us to having a teething toy there too, I also seemed to miss place it and having one there is really helpful. I also have handy and there is possible a teething pacifier like the berry teeter very helpful for those painful night. Along with that having Orajel for the gums huge YES to having it there teething is very painful.

For the pain is very important to check the weight of your baby for the correct dosage you give them so Tylenol is a must to have and only okay to give after 6 months and if earlier ask a pediatrician. Another thing to have there is saline water along with a bulb sucker for the buggers to relieve constipation and stuffy nose. For the same symptoms and relieve for the night vick’s vapo rub for baby’s is also a must to have in my baby’s medicine cabinet. and the last one is to have a thermometer to check if at all the baby has any fever anything 100.4 and up is an emergency.

if you would like to see it and the brands I have please check out the video in my channel for a visual of all I am talking about. Medicine is super important and giving relieve to a fuzzy baby is number one to deal with.

Am I kangaroo and haven’t noticed?!

Being a first time mothers is like having a test every single day and not had studied the day before, seriously! I asked my self am I a kangaroo and haven’t noticed? the other day. Here is why, my almost 8 month baby girl has a terrible separation anxiety that I have to carry her or me right next to her 24/7. A kangaroo carries her baby in her pouch 24/7 and that’s when I though maybe I am a jumping Kangaroo and I haven’t noticed.

My baby weights 20 pound and carrying her all the time is also giving me terrible back aches no matter if I have a good posture or if I carry her on the sling. She doesn’t like be carried by any body else sometimes including her dad. Which for her Dad is perfect if you know what I mean. She cries her head of if someone takes her away from me and as soon as I have er back she shuts as a door behind you aaagggh. If I go to the bathroom I have to do it in a flash literally.

Sometimes I feel like running out the door and screaming but of course everything just in my head because this mother has things to do. I love my daughter with all my heart but at time she is a little hard on me and makes me want to cry. I learn something new every single day and seeing her grow so fast makes me happy and sad at the same time. While am sure that right now am crying out of desperation later I will be crying because my baby would no longer be a baby. In a matter of fact I am crying right now just thinking about it.

I don’t care if I am a Kangaroo and probably produce a hunch back I love you Luna from the bottom of my heart to the moon and back.
