My poor little bambino has a slight cold. I feel really horrible for her. It is strange-Justin and I are not sick. We have no idea where this came from. So, in an effort to relieve her symptoms - slight runny nose, sneezing, small pitiful coughs- I went on a spree of sorts for health items. I can justify gadgets when they are related to keeping HK well and germ free for non-sick times and comfortable during illnesses. Now, do not think that I am trivializing her being sick-I really and truly feel terrible that she is sniffly. But, she has no idea that she is not 100%-seems that this little case of the sniffles bothers me much more than it bothers her. Either way-these items are sure to make us BOTH feel a lot better.
My FAVORITE website-onestepahead.com-has a WHOLE section for health related items. So, I bought:
1. The pacifier rinser. While some of the reviewers say that it leaked, I have a friend who says hers does not. So-friend wins. What a handy little device-it cleans the pacifier wherever you are-water available or not. How handy is this little thing??? Now-no more germs! The lady at their customer service told me that they recommend using an antibacterial mouthwash without alcohol-WHAT FUN!!!
2. Nasal Clear. This little thing plays music to distract snot filled baby and suctions it all out-no more blue bulb thingy! And-you can actually see if you get anything out. I swear that the blue bulb from H-E-Double Hockey Sticks either does nothing or sucks it all into the bulb so that I am forever left wondering if I am doing any good. Problem solved!!! Look how content this little baby is while having her head drained. Maybe it is the exciting music that is keeping her content. Either way-she is not screaming and squirming, and that would be an improvement.
3. Piddle Pad. This item is just for sanitary reasons-again, it is not just about keeping ill babies comfortable, but it is equally important to keep babies from catching the germs in the first place. I feel that being able to clean up potential diaper explosions in an efficient manner will cut down on germ infestations. This little pad is just handy-and I can think of all of the places it will go...stroller, car seat, other seats....there are lots of seats I am sure.
4. The teethifier. This is just smart. It is a teether that will get to the back of baby's mouth. It just looks so soothing and easy to use. While HK is only 5 weeks old, she will eventually begin teething. This little handy device will keep her from putting germy items into her mouth for comfort. Oh, no HK, don't put that in your mouth! Mommy is here with your teethifier! And, if you should drop it, no worries, Mommy has a pacifier rinser that will keep your teethifier clean and you happy!!!
Now, I think I just need to become a germ-a-phob. Really, can you imagine if I truly was one??
It's just me-and all of my idiosyncrasies. I work full time, I am married, and I love my dog. We just adopted a baby girl. I am completely contradictory, I am a girlie girl, and I am impatient. I like breakfast for dinner. I like apples and peanut butter. I like wine. I like entertaining. I like sleeping. I like labels and I can be a b-with an-itch when I want to be or am pushed. I want to give my baby every opportunity in the world, and I want to teach her values and the rewards of hard work. I want more children and am scared to death of the uncertainties of adoption even though I have already done it. I love my husband. I hate that I weigh the most I ever have in my whole life. I want my husband to make a zillion dollars a year, and I want him to put up his laundry and clothes when I ask. I want what most people want-and here is my story-day by day!
