15 NEWBORN BABY HACKS
1. Use a nursing pin
Night feedings with a newborn can be a blur! If you’re breastfeeding, it’s easy to forget which side you last nursed on. Try using a pin, a broach, hair elastic, or some other easy reminder you can stick on to help you keep your sides straight.
2. Make sure you have everything for the bath ready to go before putting baby in the tub
This will save you from having to call for help or running from the tub because you forgot baby’s towel.
3. Use a clean diaper for extra "protection"
Put a clean and open diaper under baby’s bum before you start changing the messy one to keep the changing pad and surrounding area as clean as possible.
4. Get in the swaddle game
A nice, tight swaddle helps baby feel warm and safe. It also prevents the startle reflex babies have when laying on their backs, by keeping their arms close to their bodies.
5. Master the onesie
Those flaps make it easy to slide the onesie DOWN and THEN off instead of over baby’s head. This is SO helpful when dealing with a soiled onesie!
