It’s been a great summer. One of the things I’ve loved most about this summer is that we had family and friends visiting. This included lots of traveling, including the ocean, my personal happy place. We particularly enjoyed taking beach walks and swimming. My favorite memory this summer was sharing this time with Jaxson (my youngest son) and discovering that it is a happy time at the beach for him, too.
Oh no…diaper rash! Before I had a baby I heard that diaper rash was the result of letting a child sit in a wet diaper for too long. Boy, was I wrong! Diaper rashes can have lots of different causes such as sensitive skin, antibiotics and illness. My baby boy Jaxson has very sensitive skin and hence he is prone to diaper rashes but I have learned a couple of tricks on how to minimize and even avoid them. Hopefully my tips will help you, and your baby, too!

As a mother you want nothing but the best for your children. I breastfeed and pump at the same time because being self-employed means no maternity leave for me at this time. Every now and then I simply need a break from breastfeeding which is why we opted for the Playtex Baby™ Nurser with Drop-Ins® Liners. These baby bottles provide a bottle system that is closet to natural breastfeeding.
As a mother of two I’ve learned that one can never have enough diapers especially when you have a newborn. I remember that diapers were actually one of my must-have’s at my baby registry. I remember reading somewhere that “9 out of 10 moms wish they included more everyday needs like diapers on their list” hence today’s post is all about my must-have items I carry in my diaper bag each and every day!
