Productive Nesting.

Oh dear!

I almost forgot to blog today!  Being that it’s a day off for me, Mondays are quickly becoming my most productive nesting days.

Today’s progress includes:

  • Going to the Birthing Inn to fill out some preliminary paperwork.
  • Picking up a diaper changing pad and, instead of a traditional pad cover, a couple lap & burp pads that will get more versatile use in other areas of Bennett’s life.
  • Finding a tidy location for the three month clothes, the six month clothes and the 9+ month clothes.
  • Creating bathing station baskets for both the kitchen and the bathroom, complete with a variety of washes, lotions, towels, etc.
  • Creating a diaper changing station atop Bennett’s dresser, complete with a stash of newborn diapers, wipes, an official wee blocker (yes, it says, “tinkle tinkle little star”) and some old, handmedown, grungier bibs.  Why the bibs?  Well, I figure that sometimes our wee blocker might be in the wash.  And since we’ve been gifted a lot of pretty adorable, fancy new bibs and plenty of older, spare bibs, I figured I that could always grab an old bib to cover his you-know-what so I don’t get showered when changing diapers.
  • Organizing a diaper changing accessory bin that’ll be within arms’ reach in the event that we need extra lotions and potions to keep a tushy happy.
  • Enlisting Brian to help me set up the Pack-N-Play in our bedroom.  It has a bassinet feature (that flips over to be a changing station)!  Yesterday I made room for the contraption.  Soon I’ll be brainstorming what sort of basket of goodies I’ll need to keep within arms’ reach of the Pack-N-Play for convenience.

    It seems you enjoy the organizational basket, so might I suggest one that happened quite by accident but came to be useful. The nursing basket:
    Burp rag, lansolin, water bottle, nipple guard (may not need it, but good to have just in case) and a book you can hold with one hand. Perhaps some words of encouragement you have received from friends over the past months that were great at a showers but even better at 2am.

    I can’t believe the Tinkle Tinkle. I had girls, but changed my cousins often, This is such a wise invention!
