Baby shopping the first time can seem like a mission impossible. Buying cute clothes is one thing but the insane amount of so-called “must-have” other baby products that stores have to offer can make it slightly overwhelming. And let´s face it, 75% of these you don´t really need. Now that we are starting to prepare for baby #2 it´s obviously much easier, in the first place because we already have a lot and secondly because I know now what we really need and what is just great marketing but not required (at all). However, there are also some things that I never thought of before, but that only after having the bichin I realized are super useful.

Where we live, it can get pretty hot. By Dutch standards, it gets insanely hot. Although I love the sun and the summer weather, July and August can be a bit too hot, even for my “I-want-to-be-outside-in-the-sun-all-the-time” attitude.
Luckily, we have air conditioning in our place, but I don’t like to let it run all the time. I especially don’t like to turn it on at night, since I don’t want the little guy to get the typical air-conditioning cold. And let’s not forget how expensive keeping the air conditioner on 24/7 can be. In order to survive those hot months, we have found some tips and tricks to make the heat a bit more bearable without spending our entire paycheck on air conditioning.

When I first became a mom, the thought of all the places that a tiny baby could contract germs would drive me mad. I would worry about people touching him without washing their hands first, his dummy falling on the floor, unsterilized bottles, and much more. Now that he is a bit older, though, things are different. He’s running around outside, wanting to touch everything and dropping his dummy all the time. That’s why I’ve decided not to worry about germs anymore.

Every time I saw a little boy grabbing in his own pants, I was a bit like what the? Why don’s his parents say something? And also, don’t they teach him that you shouldn’t do that in public? What kind of parenting is that? Let’s just touch ourselves the whole day and be happy or what?
It´s almost Christmas, which means the internet is exploding with gift guides for every single person you might need to buy a gift for. Gift guides for him, gift guides for busy moms, gift guides for hosts, gift guides for toddlers, gift guides for your mother in law, etc. etc. However, let´s face it, the real things moms want and desperately need, are not for sale in any store.
