I know I went rogue and made a new discussion board. I'm sure this should go somewhere else but thought it would be fun to put some collective wisdom up as I think most of us are S or T or FTM and there are not a lot of questions and sometimes FTM don't even know what to ask.
Everyone has a bit of awesome wisdom and a way of doing the the little things that makes life easier. I don't know all of them but after one kid I have a few mom life hacks. What are yours?
1. I always make the crib in this order, waterproof mattress protector, crib sheet, 2nd waterproof mattress protector then 2nd crib sheet. Late night blowouts and vomiting will happen this way you strip one layer of mattress protector and crib sheet and baby goes right back to sleep and you don't have to remake the bed at 0 dark 30.
2. Whenever we buy diapers for the first time in the a new size I also always buy diapers in the next size up as well and put that box in the nursery. Inevitably you will have that baby growth spurt diaper blowout at 2 am on a Tuesday night and need the next size up it's awesome to just have some on hand. I hate late night diaper runs.
