Re: Product Spotlight- Health and Safety

  • I'll probably add more as I think of them, but here are a few:
    -a good thermometer. I prefer a fast read one. We started with a safety 1st thermometer that took forever. Was fine in the beginning, but once DS started getting squirmy, we got a Vicks quick read thermometer. So much better!
    -Keep tylenol and motrin on hand. Also Vicks baby rub is good for coughs.
    -we have a cool mist humidifier which is helpful for coughs and the dry air as well
    - get one of those nose frida nose suckers. Looks disgusting, but works wonders!
    - baby gates and outlet protectors once baby starts crawling
    - baby nail clippers for those baby nails

    I'm sure there's more I've forgotten.

  • I’m going to second the Nose Frida. I totally didn’t want to buy one because it looked super gross. But, the ability to get some sleep by getting sufficient snot out if baby’s nose is absolutely priceless. I give that as a gift at baby showers now.

  • I had the nosefrida and I actually think the NeilMed version is better. It's easier to clean and can be used as a hand pump or by sucking.

    We tried the regular vitamin D drops our pedi prescribed (divisol) and they made DS projectile spit up the second he took them. Switched to a hippie brand and he was fine. It was weird.

    On the flip side, I tried using hippie ointment for his first eczema outbreak but Aquaphor was the only thing that worked.
