One of the hardest, if not the hardest, jobs in the world is being a mom. The moment you give birth, you’ve entered the new moms club but your role is nothing short of a superhero’s. The first few years, especially, are a real challenge and we know it can be overwhelming just learning the best way to bottle feed a baby. But, just like every other job, you need a little bit of organization to get some parts of it aligned to your tune in order to take up all the extra firefighting.
As long as you cover the basics, you should be good to go. Here’s what you need to stay organized as a mom -
Get the right products -
It sounds basic, but it pays off a lot. Sometimes, the right product can make all the difference if you’re looking to stay organized. It gets the job done faster and allows your little one to feel super comfy. And if they’re happy, you’re happy. From organic materials which can be reused, to high-quality baby products such as newborn baby swaddle wrap, you can hit a high level of comfort that makes organization a breeze.
Picture this, you’re in a situation where you’re not able to buy diapers. Cloth diapers are easy to wash and reuse as you please.
Have multiple diaper stations -
If you have a multi-level home, make sure each floor comes with its own diaper-changing station. It becomes easier to change the little one’s diaper whenever needed, instead of having to walk up and down every few hours to change.
Diaper stations can make it simpler to handle the baby and keep them engaged as you change. These stations can also have a few clothes if needed, and all the other essentials like baby sheets and blankets within the same space because diapering work is going to last a while.
Be ready even on the road -
A small plastic bin or a bag filled with the necessary extra supplies can be refilled regularly to make it easier for babies. From baby gear to baby breastfeeding pillow, having a kit of essentials can make a world of a difference.
Here’s the essentials -
Bag of wipes
Change of clothes
A few diapers
Sync your schedules -
Once you familiarize yourself with the baby, log in the times when they eat and sleep. Once you form a pattern, you can always implement the schedule around their needs. It also allows for constant care among all of the caregivers responsible for the job.
Keep a sleep tracker that also allows you to log in other details such as the height, weight, feeding times, sleeping times and diaper changes for the baby. Soon, the pattern begins to form and it gets simpler to track their schedule and adjust yours.
With these tips, you’ll be well on your way to be properly organized. Once the schedule sets in, everything else becomes slightly easier.
