Lucruri necesare

Cand am devenit mama am inceput calatoria cu investitia in confortul celui mic si al meu. Am facut o mica cercetare online, am ascultat alte mame si am sperat ca nu arunca banii pe lucruri inutile. Am inceput cu cele mai importante bunuri cum ar fi aparatul de preparat laptele – Baby Brezza. Brandul era singurul existent in magazine. A fost o alegere buna si masinaria mi-a salvat viata. Ce are bun este ca ii ofera mamei cateva nopti dormite bine fara panici.  Fiul meu a trait bine merci cu aceasta masinarie. Nu asculta bla-bla-uri! Asculta ce este adevarat! Functioneaza si face vietile tuturor mai usoare.

Urmatorul lucru a fost patutul tip “co-sleep”. Mi-am dorit sa il am pe fiul meu langa mine din prima zi, dar este foarte bine pentru el sa aiba propriul program si propria rutina. Si acolo isi face treaba patutul. A dormit in propriul lui patut si era deranjat de noi doar cand veneam la culcare. Ulterior datorita varstei si in baza acestei observatii, am decis ca e vremea sa il mutam in patul lui. Si atunci am adoptat un pat de la Ikea. Avea deja 7 luni si a fost o decizie foarte buna intrucat incet-incet a inceput sa doarma mai mult noaptea.

Alte lucruri folositoare:

  • scutece – noi am ales Pampers Premium Care. El este ok si cu alte branduri, dar acestea erau cele fara parfum si ne-au facut sa credem ca sunt bune. Am incercat si varianta Pure, dar se trezea copilul ud peste noapte intrucat nu rezistau atat de multe ore. Nu e nostim nici pentru el, nici pentru noi. Asa ca am mentinut ce stiam ca functioneaza.
  • biberoane – aici poti alege intre sticla sau plastic – noi am ales Philips Classic, Dr. Brown si Lansinoh. Primul este inca folosit, Dr. Brown a fost folosit pentru hranirea cu cereale, Lansinoh a fost folosit foarte bine pentru hranirea cu supe o data cu diversificare.
  • sterilizator – am ales Philips si suntem foarte multumiti de el.
  • suzete – cel mai important bun in primele luni de viata si ulterior – am ales Philips si apoi am descoperit Dr. Brown. Le recomandam pe amandoua.
  • gel de dus si crema de corp pentru copil – Bioderma, Welleda, Cerave, Exomega. Cateva creme care nu au functionat pentru copilul meu: Sudocrem, Bepanthen, Johnson si Chicco.
  • Termometru – varianta clasica este cea mai buna. Nu e necesar cel tip suzeta sau extern.
  • Batista bebelusului – nu aruncati banii pe dispozitive sofisticate. Folositi metoda clasica si trageti puternic aer in piept. Este bine facuta si nu veti inghiti mucii copilului.
  • pahare, cescute, farfurii si ustensile de masa: din acestea am luat o gramada, dar fiul nostru nu a folosit nimic. El a observat cum mancam noi si adora sa se comporte ca un adult. Uneori cred ca este prea adult. Dar si noi voiam sa fim la fel si el simte nevoia sa ne depaseasca. Am aruncat rapid cani, pahare, farfurii si ustensile pentru bebelusi. Ii plac paharele noastre si furculitele noastre.
  • si nu in ultimul rand servetele umede: de cand am descoperit Water Wipes cred cu tarie ca sunt cele mai bune.

Tu ca mama vei avea nevoie de ceva alinare – crema cu lanolina de la Lansinoh face minuni. Si biberoanele lor sunt foarte bune. Crema Cerave este minunata si pentru pielea ta aflata in refacere.

All The Baby Useful Stuff

When becoming a mother I have started the journey with the premises of very little investment in pampering him and myself. I did make a research, listened to other moms and hoped we won’t waste our time and money on useless stuff. We started with the most important asset which was the milk machine – Baby Brezza. The brand was actually the only one existing in stores. It was a good choice although no real guarantee was offered for it. It’s a basic simple machine and it’s life saving. Good thing about it is that it gives the mother some nights off without any panic. My son was happy and healthy living with it. Don’t listen to the stupid non-sense gibberish! Listen to the reality! It works and makes everyone’s lives much easier. 

Next thing was the co-sleep bed. I loved having my son next to me since the first day, but it is still very good for him to have his own schedule and routine. That is where the co-sleep pays off well. He slept in his crib and only minded us when we were getting into bed. Later due to his age and the observation above, we decided it is time we let the poor baby sleep the night off on his own. That was when he was 7 months old and we picked a normal Ikea baby bed. A very good decision as his sleep became much better when there was silence in his room.

Other useful stuff you will need:

  • milk bottles – you can choose between glass or plastic, we went for Philips Classic, Lansinoh and Dr. Brown.
  • sterilizer – we chose Philips.
  • diapers – we went for Pampers Premium Care. He is ok with other brands also, but these ones were odorless and made us feel they are good. We tried Pure also but the baby would wake up all wet in pee. Not fun at all. So we gave up and went back to what we saw works.
  • pacifier – most important asset in the first months – Philips and then later we discovered Dr. Brown (we recommend these ones),
  • baby body wash and cream – Bioderma, Welleda, Cerave, A-Derma. Sudocrem, Bepanthen, Johnson and Chicco didn’t really work for my baby.
  • thermometer – classic one works perfect. Don’t waste your money on the pacifier type or the external use one.
  • nose suction – don’t waste your money on stuff connected to the vacuum cleaner or the electric type. Use the classical method of someone sucking up on a tube. It’s well made and you won’t suck on something from your baby’s nose.
  • glasses, cups, plates and utensils: our sun has a lot, but he didn’t use any. He saw us behave and loves being a grown up. Sometimes I feel he is too much of an adult rather than taking time to be a kid. But we used to be the same and he feels the need to be better than us. Love him with his perfectionist adult way!
  • last, but not least wet wipes: since I have discovered Water Wipes I strongly believe they are the best.

If you as a mother need some soothing – Lanolin cream from Lansinoh works wonders. Also Cerave cream works for your scared skin also.
