Before becoming a mom, I mistakenly believed that baby wipes were only good for wiping baby behinds. But, now I know better and I used baby wipes for EVERYTHING. I will be carrying baby wipes around in my purse long after my babies aren’t really babies anymore, because they are seriously that useful. AND…ever since I discovered these Huggies Clutch & Clean Wipes, they also got a whole lot cuter to tote around. But, I digress…here are 15 unexpected ways I use baby wipes!
When it comes to babies, there are some tried-and-true methods of soothing that most parents swear by. Once you know they are fed and have a clean diaper, you can offer them a pacifier, sway with them, swaddle them…but what if none of those things are working and you still have a crying baby?
When it comes to breastfeeding, I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship. I think breastfeeding is a wonderful way to feed little humans, but I also think it can be incredibly challenging. Milk supply issues, poor latch, mastitis…there are just so many things that can make it complicated.
I’m coming from the perspective of a mom who, over the course of having two children, has exclusively breastfed, practiced extended breastfeeding, has supplemented with bottles of formula and donor breast milk, and who has met with multiple lactation consultants, nursing support groups, latch specialists, therapists for nursing issues etc. When it comes to feeding babies, I’ve been there, done that.
As a wardrobe stylist, my most favorite “clients” to dress are my children. Let’s be real: Everything is infinitely cuter when it’s pint-sized. I’ve had so much fun dressing my 2-year-old daughter since she was a tiny babe, and I remember having so many moms of boys commenting about how lucky I was to get to dress a girl, because boy’s clothes weren’t nearly as fun.
But now that I have a little boy, I have to say I don’t agree at all! Sure, boy’s clothes are a bit simpler, but that doesn’t mean that dressing them can’t be fun too!
Here are some simple tips to spice up your little man’s ensembles.
