Welcome Baby Sibling Class with NJMOM

Hello my friends! How was your Sunday? I hope you had a blessed, wonderful day with your family! Today I had the opportunity to attend a maternity class at the Clara Maass Medical Center in Belleville, New Jersey. The class is called Welcome Baby Sibling and through this class, small children 3 years and older are introduced to the exciting role of being an older brother or sister that helps them feel involved. We started by meeting Laura Pantusco, a certified child life specialist. She was very nice and made the kids feel comfortable learning about babies and about welcoming them into the new “older brother” world. We followed her along the maternity hall for a tour where moms stay after the delivery. We were able to chat with some nurses and the kids got to see inside the room where moms stay for recovery with their babies. After that we went to a parent education room where Laura had a few props prepared to offer an educational class for the little kids. She started by …

Baby Talk: Boudreaux’s Butt Paste® Rash Kicking Kit

Hello my friends, So if you follow me on social media you have probably seen that today I announced a big surprise: we are expecting baby number 2! Yay 🙂  I am almost 13 weeks pregnant and could not wait to share the news with all of you. We are so happy to be welcoming another bundle of happiness into our little family. Baby Gabe already knows and even though he might not understand completly, he already asks to see the baby= my belly 🙂 So I thought that today would be a great day to share a little experience with baby’s butt paste. I have received a full kit from Boudreaux’s Butt Paste to try and I already knew what to expect. Here is a little story from Gabriel. When he was only 2 months old he got a really bad butt rash. I was desperate and didnt know what to do. My sister in law, she has 3 kids, and she helped me with this. She recommended I used the Yellow paste during the …

My Cubby Convertible Round Crib/ Um Berço 8 em 1

Hello guys, I’m so excited to share these photos with you! When I found out that I was pregnant with baby Gabriel I knew that I wanted him to have his own nursery. I planned and put all together very carefully, after all, it was my first baby and I was very excited with every single detail. I bought a regular crib for his room and a little bassinet to be on my room for the first few days after bringing him home from the hospital. It all worked good, but looking back today I wish I had found Cubby, the convertible round crib before. So lets talk crib…. I recently found out about Cubby. Its a convertible crib made of pine wood. Its basically the only crib your child will need from age 0 to 5.  Its so pratical and it comes with lockable swivel wheels that allow movement from room to room. This crib replaces the need for a few other furnitures: it can be a bassinet for a newborn with a separate …

Relato do meu Parto

Olá meninas, Como algumas pessoas tem me perguntando, hoje venho contar para vocês todos os detalhes do nascimento do Gabriel. A data prevista para o nascimento dele era dia 11 de Abril (40 semanas), mas no dia 4 de Abril terça feira, uma semana antes, acordei e me arrumei para ir ao medico. As minhas consultas pre natal eram sempre nas terças pela manha. Tomei banho, tomei cafe da manha e quando fui arrumar a bolsa para sair de casa em torno das 8 da manha comecei a sentir uma dorzinha como uma cólica menstrual. Comentei com meu esposo e saímos de casa para ir ao medico. Durante a consulta expliquei o que estava sentindo e começamos a monitorar de quantos em quantos minutos vinha as contrações. Como estavam em um intervalo de 15 em 15 minutos, meu medico me mandou para casa e disse para eu voltar quando as contrações estivessem mais intensas e em um intervalo de 5 a 5 minutos. Fui embora para casa e comecei a arrumar os últimos detalhes da …
