Spit up has never looked so chic

How's that for a post title! But seriously, how cute is the burp shawl by Burp Necessity. This might be my new favorite product. It's innovative, functional and stylish. The fabric is soft for baby's sensitive skin and also very absorbent. Stops spit up in its tracks. Hehe.

About Burp Necessity
 Burp Necessity started as my solution to every mother’s problem of small, unflattering, inconvenient burp cloths that did not stay put. I am a mother of 2 beautiful children who inspired me to create the original Burp Shawl™ that works to protect clothing from inevitable messy spit-ups. I wanted to create a product that didn't look like the typical boring burp cloth. A product that was functional but at the same time stylish and would compliment any mom's outfit.
 Burp Necessity consists of myself Kathy Fitzgerald, creator and designer of the burpshawls.  I am also a stay at home mom and a part-time pharmacy technician. And my amazing mother Ran Kreal who hand crafts each Burpshawl with over 30 years of sewing experience.
As mothers, we take pride in the time and effort that go into each Burp Necessity Shawl so rest assured your Burpshawl was hand crafted with the utmost care and love (in Seattle, Washington) because nothing is more important than our precious babies.

The Natursutton Pacifier

By now I am sure you have seen this amber colored pacifier all over Instagram. Every "It" baby seems to have one, but this must have "Baby accessory" isn't just a trend. This pacifier is actually pretty darn awesome! Here is why:

This pacifier is 100% natural. It's ecologically sustainable from pure natural rubbers. The protein that can occasionally cause a latex allergy is eliminated during the process in which they are made.

Natursutten® is owned by a mother of three and offers natural products for babies and toddlers.
Natursutten wants to make a difference by making parents aware of toxin-free baby products, which ensure a more chemical-free future for our children and for our environment.

With a NATURSUTTEN pacifier, you avoid:
  • Allergy causing substances
  • Artificial color
  • Cancer causing substances
  • Hormone disturbing substances
  • Chemical softeners
  • Parabens, PVC and phthalates

NATURSUTTEN pacifiers are softer than silicone, and are very hygienic because they are molded in one piece without joints or cracks where dirt and bacteria can accumulate.

Indie loves her Natursutten and I can tell that by its shape she is able to keep a good grip on it with out it pooing out. I'm sure all of us Mama's know exactly what I am referring to. Especially with newborns, they can't quite keep it in long enough to fall asleep which leads to them becoming upset and starting the process of getting baby to sleep all over again... Another huge reason why we are a fan.

1 Month

How can it be that our sweet little Indie girl is already 1 whole month?! This past month has been pure bliss. Who knew having a newborn could be so much fun. She practically sleeps through the night, will just lay on my lap and look into my eyes with her perfect happy, little face, doesn't mind having a thousand photos taken of her and is just all around happy. We are head over heels in love with her.

Settling in

We are just about 2 weeks out since having Miss Indie. It's so funny how you wonder, imagine and fantasize about your baby and once they are here its this all familiar feeling like they have been here the entire time. My babies have always been a part of me, even before I ever thought about having children...they were there. Our family feels so complete. We are very blessed with the 3 little girls that we have. It's an absolute privilege to be their Mother. They bring us such joy.

The transition of having a new baby couldn't have been easier. The girls are just smitten and so helpful. This time around has definitely been the easiest. Tim and I are just so mellow and familiar with this process. We do have days where we are exhausted but that is to be expected, but she by far sleeps better than the other 2 ever did as newborn so we'll take it!!
