My husband really appreciates this one. It’s easy for my to get skin to skin time with my tiny babe because she is pretty consistently attached to my boobs. For him it has to be a little bit more intentional. It is the middle of winter though and it’s not the most comfortable to be shirtless around the house, or stuck under a blanket. The Pocket gave him the chance to have some snuggle and bonding time while keeping baby secure and warm.
LIFE SAVER. For the first three nights my daughter was home we cycled through swaddles to see which one would be the ticket to us getting the most sleep. Most of them had entirely too much fabric that would bunch up around her face even when it was on the tightest option. She was only 6lbs 13.5oz so on the smaller side you could say. The Swaddler is stretch fabric that allowed me to swaddler her tight but, still had enough give to the fabric for her to move her arms around inside. Hello three hour newborn sleep stretches!
Car Seat Cover/Nursing Cover
It’s literally freezing in Wisconsin right now. Having the car seat covered is not an option it is a necessity! Most of the covers I have had in the past just drape over the seat and can blow open, the stretchy Nuroo cover stretches over the car seat and stays secure. Also, I can pull it off the cover her while nursing, or to cover her while transporting her outside while she is inside her sling.
I have to say Nuroo really seems to have nailed it in the newborn department. Good quality products, beautiful gender neutral patterns, simple and clean designs. They are putting out some must have essentials for surviving those newborn days. Check them out here.
*I was given Nuroo products complimentary for my honest review.*
