Today is Mickey Mouse’s birthday! Mickey Mouse made his very first appearance in the short film, Steamboat Willie, on November 18, 1928 in New York City… and the rest is history! To celebrate this special occasion, here’s my roundup of my top 10 favorite Mickey Mouse gifts for baby.
Happy Birthday, Mickey Mouse!
Today is World Prematurity Day. One out of every ten births is premature worldwide. I can confidently say, no parents ever expect to become the parents of a preemie baby: we sure didn’t when Judah surprised us with his early arrival! For the first twenty-nine days of his life, Judah lived in the NICU – out of state and 300+ miles away from our home – and we were right there by his side for every moment.
In honor of World Prematurity Day, I wanted to look back at our strange days of life in the NICU, of our son’s incredible fight and amazing resilience to offer hope, support and inspiration to others who may be parenting preemie babies of their own.
Thanks to Disney for sponsoring this post and for giving me Mickey Mouse Orthodontic Bottles and Pacifiers by NUK® for free.
Our little guy eats like a champ, and when it’s time to eat, he is not shy about letting everyone know he’s hungry. That’s why I love our new orthodontic bottles and pacifiers from NUK: they make mealtime a snap for our little voracious eater!
For a while, Judah didn’t want anything to do with a pacifier, but now it’s our secret weapon at mealtime. Judah eats so fast he gets pretty mad when the bottle is empty, so after he’s finished his bottle, we pop in a pacifier and peace is restored!

Now that Judah is 6 months old, he’s slowly but surely getting into a bit of a routine each day. We’ve been incredibly lucky that our baby has been sleeping through the night since he was about 3-1/2 months old.
We’ve wondered just how long should baby be sleeping, and most parenting websites say anywhere from 14 to 16 hours (including nighttime sleep). At this age, our baby naps at least four hours a day: how he breaks that up really depends on him and the day. Some days he’ll take two long naps (yay!) and other days it’s lots of twenty-minute catnaps (not so yay).
The amazing thing is… Judah will nap just about anywhere – except for the ONE spot we really need him to nap. Click through to see all of our adventures in naptime… and can you help us with our naptime dilemma?
