SIX MONTHS INTO PARENTHOOD: LESSONS LEARNED

Since Naiya was born on August 30th, 2017 and February had only 28 days, we’ve been celebrating her half birthday for a few days now like crazy proud first-time parents.  Six months into parenthood, we finally feel so much more like our old selves again.  From months 1-5, I wondered if this would ever happen.  We barely recognized ourselves from our epic lack of sleep and sheer exhaustion.  Thanks to sleep training over the past couple of weeks, though, we’re finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel; it’s pretty incredible.

MUST-HAVE BABY CARRIER TANK

Since she was born, Naiya has always loved to be held.  This is great in that we’ve gotten a lot of extra cuddle time in but of course this also gets completely exhausting–especially now that she’s getting heavier!  Likewise, since she was a few weeks old, I’ve been experimenting with baby carriers that help me to go hands free with her (more in this recent post).  The tank I’m wearing today is one of the most user-friendly carriers I’ve tried so far. Excited to share the details below of this must-have tank new mamas need to know about.
