EASY log – The Baby Whisperer

Michelle

EASY Log – The Baby Whisperer:  I read a great book whilst pregnant 'Secrets of the baby Whisperer by Tracy Hogg' who recommends using an EASY Log to help you get to know your baby’s feeding patterns. Eat, Activity, Sleep and You time. When you have a new baby it’s easy to forget when you gave the last feed, how many nappies you’ve changed and to establish any kind of routine. Although I fed on-demand, I found it helpful to write down the feeds/naps etc to help me establish Oliver’s preferences. I found this book a wonderful guideline as a new Mummy and would highly recommend it and it's definitely my kind of approach as it involves a spreadsheet. Secrets of the Baby Whisperer

The baby Whisperer’s less regimented approach to child rearing is based on a baby's personality type and it includes a helpful questionnaire to help you understand which type your baby is. Tracy Hogg has sadly passed away but long may her legacies continue as her method and approach is very mummy friendly. The Baby Whisperer books are available on Amazon. If you would like a copy of a ‘sample’ EASY log just click on 'PRINT ME' – Michelle X

Essentials Hospital list

Following the success of our ‘Essentials baby list’ we have complied 3 lists for the all important hospital trip; Mummy, Baby and Daddy/Partner. We will be sharing these over the next three days and on the third day will enable the Essentials Hospital list 'PRINT ME' option. Our ABEILLE LOVES details some other pregnancy related items we recommend so have a peek at that too. If you have any questions about any of the items, please just ask. Michelle X

 

Essentials Hospital list - Mummy

Birth Plan The documented plan for your preferred delivery
Feeding/ Nursing bra We recommend you get professionally measured for one. Non-wired bras for pregnancy and then around 36/37 weeks go and get fitted for a nursing bra, you may have to go again after your milk comes in as you may increase in size again. Maternity bras aren’t particularly attractive, but comfort is key
Food Food bag-not for you but for your other half!! Good idea to pack some bottles of water (the sports bottles) for you and some sweets you can suck on as your mouth can get really dry! Also some lucozade…
Knickers(Passion killers) Post birth, make sure you get a few of packs of dark, big, briefs you will be grateful for these, trust me!
Night shirts Nightshirts (pack a few) to wear in labour/after
Plastic bag To put old clothes in or labour clothes for someone to take home for you
Post partum support pants I wish I had known about these as I had carried a big baby and was very conscious of my tummy! To help with the post partum mummy tummy, High Waisted Post Pregnancy Support Pants
Pyjamas Dark coloured pyjamas for post-birth
Sanitary towels Maternity towels are required, they may seem huge and unattractive but the bigger the better it’s the comfort that counts. Buy a good few packets as you will get through them.
Slippers  You don’t want to be walking on the hospital floors!
Tens Tens (you can rent these from most pharmacies) if you are using one you will probably be wearing it by the time you go to hospital
Toiletries Tooth brush, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel etc.
Towel Dark Towel for after your bath/ shower post-birth
Travelling home outfit Bring comfortable maternity clothes to return home in, I didn’t forgetting that the pre-baby body would take a few months to return.
