Love To Dream -Swaddle UP 50/50 Transition Bag: Product Review & Giveaway!

We received the Swaddle UP 50/50 Transition Bag from Love To Dream. These are my own thoughts based off my experience using the Swaddle UP 50/50 Transition Bag.

We’ve used many swaddles since Juliette came home from the hospital. She had a startle reflex like no other. We wanted to provide her the comfort of being wrapped in our arms however, while sleeping in her crib that would be impossible. Her safety is our priority. We like to use the ABC’s of Safe Sleep.

WaterWipes :Gentle For Babies Sensitive Skin

We never would’ve imagined that our daughter’s skin would be sensitive. Within her first two weeks of Juliette begin to have a diaper rash. We changed her diapers constantly and we tried of various baby wipes since we had a variety of brands from our baby shower. None of them worked for Juliette’s skin. We ended up using around 12-15 wash cloths with a bowl of warm water to be a gentle as possible during her diaper changes.

Yes, It’s A Baby At A Concert!

Everyone who knows me already know I love concerts. The first concert I attended was non other than Ms. Patti LaBelle at 5 years old. I can remember seeing Patti kick off her high heel shoes, get on her knees and roll around singing. That was back when R&B music was real and made sense. I grew up listening to artist like Earth, Wind & Fire, Debarge, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Marvin Gaye, Tammi Terrell, Diana Ross, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston, The Gap Band and countless others that I adore. I knew I would bring Juliette to shows with me at an early age.

The Self Care I Didn’t Realize I Needed

This is how I walked around the house for the first months of our child’s life and mostly in a robe since I nurse Juliette. I must say when my husband JP told me to come here, I did not think his next words would be I think there’s something in crawling in your hair. After a few moments of him picking through my hair, he told me it was nothing just a piece of lint.

JP then said, in his kindest voice “Babe, when was the last time you washed your hair?” I honestly couldn’t remember. JP told me to go handle that and I’ll watch Juliette. I was reluctant at first, but I knew I needed this.

I started to ask myself when was the last time I took the time to give myself love and care that I truly needed. Let’s see, I hadn’t shave the hair on my legs since the 2nd trimester and now it’s beyond the 4th trimester. I hadn’t shaved my armpits since a week before Juliette was born. I would normally wash my hair weekly before getting low maintenance hairstyles such as braids, but who’s counting now (perhaps I should go back to braids).

(Here’s the products that I used: BIC® Soleil® Original Disposable Razor, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner, Dove Deodorant for Sensitive SkinAvenno Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Yogurt Body Wash/Apricot and Honey, Active Naturals Positively Smooth Shave Gel, Govanni 2Chic BlackBerry Hair Serum, it’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product, and Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil, Coconut Face Oil and Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks)

I took full advantage of the time I had on my hands for self care. I washed my hair and took care of everything that I’ve neglected for far too long. My shower was even a bit longer. Normally, I would rush through it to get back to our baby, but not this hour. It was for me and afterwards I felt so much better.

Whenever, JP hears me turn on the hair blow dryer he comes in to tackle the job. It’s a wonderful feeling to know he’s love to help me look and feel my best.

Once it was dry I flat ironed my hair. In all this may have taken me 1 hour and 30 minutes. I felt so refreshed after a little self care. I urge you to take sometime for yourself. You will be glad you did!
