Obviously, the best thing about pregnancy is the reward of a beautiful baby. Once baby finally arrives, one of the worst things about pregnancy is coping with the aftermath of what growing a baby inside your uterus for 9 months has done to your body.
A few people have told me they are surprised that I didn’t blog about Charlie’s blowouts. Shame on me!
I first visited The Right Start when I was pregnant with Charlie. The Right Start is a national chain. I have been to a few locations, but the Sherman Oaks store is my favorite. This store is much smaller than its counterparts, but don’t let its small size fool you. It is packed chock full of amazing product. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed by all of the items available for mommy and baby. Luckily for me, Sierra, one of the employees, is familiar with the deer-caught-in-headlights look of a parent to be. She immediately took me under her wing.
Hands down, the Fisher Price Rock n Play Sleeper is the best thing you can buy if you have a baby who needs to sleep upright. We discovered the Rock n Play Sleeper when Charlie was 2 months old and used it exclusively until he was about 4.5 months. If you have seen any of my videos, Charlie is often in the Rock n Play right next to me. It is also portable. It made taking Charlie to a friend’s house or on overnight trips super easy because we knew he would be able to sleep comfortably.
I suggest getting it at Amazon.com or Walmart, but not Target or Babies R Us. Target charges $10 more for the same exact product. Babies R Us charges $15 more.
