Back at work!

Well I finished one week back at work! We had one day off due to the 4th of July. 
Things went much smoother then I anticipated. Rose is adjusting very well to the sitter and more time with daddy. She's letting me sleep enough at night and things couldn't be going any better!

Coming to an end

Rose will be 3 months this weekend, and at 3 months and 1 week I'll be going back to work. Really feeling a lot of mixed emotions.
It's going to be so hard to leave my precious one every day. Thank God I have a job that I adore to help make it a little easier.
I love being home with Rose, even on the days where it feels isolating. Yesterday was hard, Rose doesn't like the car, so I find myself at home a lot. Alone. I don't do alone well. Hubby got home 3 hours late, adding to the loneliness. I can't wait for the day when Rose does better in the car!

We are reading The Happiest Baby on the Block. And have decided to start working on the 5 S's. Rose has refused to be swaddled for the last month, but we revisited swaddling last night and coupled it with some of Karps other ideas, and I think it worked pretty well! Rose slept very sounding from 10pm-5am. Got up to eat and is now back to sleep. Really looking forward to what else we find in this book. When I was pregnant we focused all our time on reading books and watching Documentaries about Labor that we completely forgot to read books about what to do after the baby came! Time to get caught up!

Baby Teething Remedies

With teething season fast approaching for our little girl, I've been researching several different things to help her get through that time.
1. Orajel- The FDA warns against this product!
2. Hylands Teething Tablets- Questionable, was recalled a couple years ago for negative health effects that were pretty serious. The problem has been fixed, but I still question the use of the ingredient that cause the problem.
3. Amber Teething Necklace-  I got mine from Spark of Amber on Etsy!
4. Homemade Teething cream- I'll be posting a recipe soon!

Operation healthy baby!
