Getting a Home Ready for a New Baby

Getting a Home Ready for a New Baby
A new baby is on the way and you’ve begun decorating the nursery and clearing away clutter in your house. Chances are you are also working on enhancing your home in other ways as well. There are furniture pieces you can’t do without, such as purchasing a new crib (unless this is your second child). You may also be implementing calming elements, such as cooler tones on the walls that’ll have a calming affect on a baby. Plus, who can wait to organize the closet with all of those fun baby accessories?! All of these elements combined will not only enhance the appearance of your home but will create a tranquil environment for when the new baby arrives.

Clear clutter and begin to decorate  
If you haven’t already done so -- even if the nursery is currently being used as a place to store boxes or other elements -- go ahead and start sorting and organizing. When you’re able, set up the nursery and implement new toys, diapers, books, and other supplies and clothing that your baby will need. Of course don’t forget about favorite elements such as handmade tutu dresses. As you clear away clutter, you’ll have a darling room and other interior spaces that will be organized and ready in time for the baby to arrive.

An organized closet will help a lot when the baby comes home from the hospital. You can organize clothing according to size and color, or both if you prefer. Setting up a way to easily find clothing when things get chaotic will be easier on the mother. Plus, it’ll also make it easier to find the perfect outfit for a special occasion. Baby headbands, toddler hair bows, and ruffled baby bloomers are just a few accessories that will be fun organizing and showing off in your baby’s closet.
How to clean furniture
It’s not only important to incorporate new décor pieces and furniture to add to your comfort, but cleaning your furniture is also something else to consider. The reasoning behind this is because cleaning your furniture will eliminate any potential products that may have soaked into your sofas or other furniture.  Clean your furniture with water or a dry duster instead of adding more scents or potentially dangerous products that a baby shouldn’t be around. Environmentally safe products and clean furniture will ensure that your baby doesn’t suffer from any allergies when he or she comes home from the hospital.
Calming elements for a tranquil room  
What kind of calming elements would you like in your home when you are most likely up late rocking the baby to sleep and feeding him or her too? A durable and soft rocking chair will be your best friend while rocking and feeding your child. Other elements such as calming colors on the walls or perhaps even an indoor water fountain will create a calming atmosphere that will appeal to your sense of sight and sound.

Sleep right along with the baby and calming décor pieces will create just what you need – a place of solace when a newborn baby is getting used to her new environment, and you’re getting used to having a new baby in your home too.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
