Newborn Essentials We Used Daily

Newborn Essentials We Used Daily - Best Products for a New Baby

As a new Mum, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all the products you MUST buy... but what do you really use when you have a newborn?

With Jensen now four and a half months old, we know exactly what we did and didn't use in those early days - as well as what we're continuing to use now - so with so many of you expecting your own little ones, I wanted to share our newborn essentials to help you get a better idea of what you'll use, what you won't use and what we recommend.

Here's what we've been using daily! >>

Jensen's Birth Story - An Elective C-Section Birth Story

My Elective C-Section Birth Story - Australian Private Hospital

I wasn't going to share Jensen's birth story.

To be honest, I've always found them a strange thing to share. Something so intimately personal and special, shared with the world to read - but whilst pregnant, I realised that my birth story might be a powerful tool for someone in similar shoes.

And it may have taken me 10 weeks to finally finish writing and posting it - but I still wanted to share.

You see, for many women, a c-section is a last resort.

It's what comes as an emergency procedure after a long labour that doesn't progress. 
It's the last mentioned on the birth plan "just in case". 
It's "major abdominal surgery" and to be avoided at all costs.

But for me, it was the only way.... and now I can tell you that for me, it was also the best way.

So let me share my story >>

Introducing Jensen

Introducing Jensen - The Southern In Law Baby

Things have been a little quiet around here because we welcomed our son, Jensen Elias on December 1st.

Jesse and I are totally wrapped around Jensen's tiny fingers and loving life as a family of three - with pee explosions, poopy nappies, nighttime wakings and everything inbetween.

The recipes will come, but for now we're just soaking up our time together. If you want to see what we've been up to, be sure to follow us on Instagram for all the cute Jensen photos and funny moments.
