Hi, my name is Kara. I am Kira’s twin sister, and I have an almost four year old daughter named Maleah. I wanted to share my favorite baby related product with you.
From the beginning of my pregnancy I was really excited about the journey. I got my associates in Early Childhood Education, and took care of a whole room full of infants my whole pregnancy. So, I wasn’t worried about the mom part, but I didn’t really know where to begin when it came to what I needed.
There are so many companies trying to make money and promoting their items as the best, I didn’t
know who to believe or where to begin. My husband is quite the research man so he was on the lookout for the best and safest carseat, stroller, breast pump, etc. The only thing I did know from working in childcare is that my first purchase would be a boppy pillow. We used multiple of them daily with my room full of six week to eight month olds. What I didn’t know is that I would use it for more than just nursing Maleah.
After I had Maleah and before being discharged from the hospital, I called my mom and requested she
bring my boppy pillow, not because I needed it to nurse Maleah, but because it was killing me to sit on
anything. The thought of sitting on that thing was glorious. Here is a picture of Maleah and I the day
after we got out of the hospital and yes I am sitting on the boppy.
be moved around a lot after she ate and sometimes it wasn’t possible for me to hold her during that
time, so this is where I put her.
her in case she fell over (we have all wood floors), which happened pretty often. I would scoot it back a little further the more I felt she was getting better at sitting alone.
what I have metioned. I would have to say the boppy is the one thing that I used the most in the first year, I took it everywhere with us, even though Maleah is almost four the boppy still gets used by her dolls and for friends babies when they come over, but it is waiting for round number two one of these days!
Thanks Kira for letting me post on your blog, you will be a great mom and I can’t wait to go on this
journey with you!
