How To Prepare For Baby
Posted by Amnah Ibrahim
Since the day she was born, me and my little Z have been inseparable. She’s incredibly attached to me and repeatedly chooses me over her daddy. I soak up every ounce of love she throws my way. She is always by my side, in my lap, or sleeping next to me. She currently is sitting in my lap as I type this out! So with my newest baby’s birth fast approaching, all I could think about was how I would handle two babies in my arms or at my side?

I’m so excited to share today’s nursery with you. My friend Molly Kidd of the blog Urban Nester put together a lovely space for her brand new baby girl Karis Ruby and it pretty much embodies my approach to nursery design. It’s totally functional while still being chic and there’s a great balance of simplicity and whimsy. It’s a space that both an adult and a little one would enjoy being and the juxtaposition of modern and vintage pieces makes the space feel cozy and warm. When I asked Molly to share a bit about Karis’ space she said, “I wanted her space to be more feminine, and less babyish. I prefer simple design, and wanted the nursery to flow with the rest of our house, so I stuck primarily with black, white, grey, gold, and touches of mustard and various shades of pink. I’m happy with how the space turned out!” I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for letting me share your design handiwork Molly!

As delivery day gets closer, I’m getting more and more ready to meet my baby girl. I haven’t yet started packing my hospital bag, but I do have a running list of what needs to go in there and a little pile of things that are ready to go. With each pregnancy, it seems I’m taking less and less to the hospital. So many websites have recommendations for what you should pack, but honestly, a lot of it is not necessary. The less you have to take in with you, the better. Plus, you’ll have even more to take home once the baby is born. People will bring flowers and gifts and you’ll have a loot of newborn stuff, too! If you can fit everything in a small rolling bag or suitcase, that’s great! Here’s what I’m packing in my hospital bag (and what I’m not!)…

My due date is just 6 weeks away. As ready as I am to be done with pregnancy and meet my new little love, I’m a little bit anxious to see what being a mama of 3 is like. My oldest is just 3 years old, so my hands will be full, both literally and metaphorically. I’ve gotten great advice from other moms of many, but it’s still hard to know what life will be like with a 3 year-old, a toddler, and a newborn. Here are a few things I’m doing to get ready for this big transition for our family…

We just wrapped up our first year as being first time parents to an amazing baby boy. You can never fully prepare yourself for bringing a baby into the world. As much as you think you are ready, having a baby brings so many emotions and surprises that you could have never dreamed of. There are definitely a few essentials that we needed over this past year that have kept us sane.
