Women are pregnant for nine months. We feel every gentle twist, kick and sway of our little ones as they are growing inside of us. Then the time comes for us to bring these beautiful babies into the world and with a few (thousand?) pushes and grunts we get to formally meet our new bundles of joy. When baby is placed into your arms though, you just might realize that all of a sudden there is now a new distance between you two. No longer are you both tied by your heartbeats. That is no excuse not to keep baby close though. You may not have your child pressing on your bladder or squeezing the air out of your lungs anymore, but you can still wrap them up in your arms and keep them as close as ever, but perhaps a little more comfortably. Here are a few suggestions continue to keep baby close.
WAYS TO KEEP BABY CLOSE
The best way to keep baby close is to wear them. Then you can take them wherever you go and still have the security for both of you in feeling that warmth and tender heart beat close by. This market sling for baby from Serena & Lily is the perfect solution. It is shown here with the Grass(exterior) and Marigold(interior) combination, which is perfect for any baby. It is crafted with beautiful hand-embroidery on 100% organic cotton with a super-soft brushed interior that is gentle against baby’s delicate skin. The simplified design – one seamless piece of fabric without buckles, belts or straps – is snug, sleek and easy to wear. It also folds down small for easy storage. Available in Small, Medium & Large Sizes.
The sling is perfect for when you are out and about, but what about when you are at home? You can try co-sleeping, but if you are worried about hubby (or you!) rolling over on top of your little one, then how about a bassinet? The “Baby Chic” bassinet by Lulla Smith is simple, elegant and sophisticated. The bassinet bedding design features a 100% Dupioni Silk skirt with chic contrasting trim and is available in many colors to suit any decor. The bassinet and trim can be done in any silk color of your choice – see drop down menu to view choices. You can choose any combination to go with your room. The bassinet includes an underskirt of net, 2″ mattress with a 100% Swiss Cotton batiste fitted crib sheet and a decorative matching pillow. A coordinating blanket is available to keep your infant warm and snuggly. This is a beautiful piece for your new baby.
While bassinets have baby at arm’s reach overnight, for an ease of feeding and changing, what about when you go out of town? Realistically, your child will inevitably need to sleep in other places aside from home. Its summertime! You might have a trip to the beach planned, or a getaway to the cottage. Where do you put your infant then? How about a versatile moses basket that is easily moved from one room to the other in an instant. Unlike the ancient times when reed baskets were crafted to keep the fragile babies safe, today they are kept safe inside a basket covered with soft cushions and padding, wrapped inside the delicate fabrics designed as per client’s choice. All these pampering accessories are decorated inside the basket and the baby is covered with a soft blanket. Same is the story of this Carlos Linen Moses Basket. A perfect solution to keep baby safe and close wherever you go!
Even as your newborn grows, there will still be lots of time for cuddles. Whether it be breast-feeding, story-time or just plain cuddle-time having the space to enjoy that closeness is key. The slipcovered Emma Chair from Taylor Scott is the way. It is one of our favorite glider rockers.
