My Top 10 Baby Items: #7
It seems like everyone I know is having a baby, and of course, I just had one. Even though Felix is my second child, we still had to rack our brains about what we needed this time around, what we already had, and what we needed to buy. It’s amazing how fast 3 years goes by and how much we had forgotten over that span of time. Therefore, I have put together a list of my Top 10 Baby Items (in no particular order) that we simply could not do without.
7. Baby Zen CD
This items wasn’t even on my registry but a friend from work gave it to me and we still use it with our daughter, and she’s 3. There are tons of CDs out there that are supposed to help with sleep, etc., but we loved this one. It is basically familiar lullabies that are slowed down and played with a zen-like quality. It’s very smooth sounding, and something about it just makes you feel relaxed.
We started out with just listening to it in the mornings (with our daughter), as that seemed to be a rough time. It calmed my nerves, which probably helped Anya to feel more relaxed, as babies tend to feed off your energy. Eventually, we started using it when we put her to bed. For three years, she has listened to that CD when she falls asleep, and she still does. Sometimes, if we forget to turn it on, she asks for it. We even have it downloaded onto our Ipods so it is available anytime we go out of town.
I realize this CD may not be the one for you, but I’m sure there is one out there for you, so I highly recommend finding something that will help your baby (and you) relax together!
