Realization #12 - The best toys aren't always the most expensive

#12 - My little man has started playing and enjoying some of the toys he has - a ball with a bell, an alien guy with squeeks and mirrors on him, a zebra with a rattle inside and several others. But his all time favorite that not only makes him smile but can calm him in an instant? A cloth diaper. Yep, he loves it. A no frills, plain white cloth diaper.

Realization #11 - Old thing, new use

#11 - I've found out, from experience, that in the event that you may not have any more disposable breast pads or none of the washables are clean, a sanitary napkin works just fine as a substitute. I just snip one in half and insert - voila!

Reaization #10 - Burp cloths aren't big enough

#10 - I've decided burp cloths are not big enough - or maybe it's that my little man just likes to out smart Mom. It seems that regardless if I have something covering my shoulder as I burp him, he manages to get some spit up outside of the burp cloth realm. It truly is amazing how he can do it, really. I'm wondering if putting a bib on him will help...or if he'll just manuever around that as well!
