++PARENTING HACKS, INFANT EDITION++

We got to help each other. No seriously help us.
  1. Core Ball
    3:30am is no ones best time. But it's time to PLAY! The core/yoga/balance ball allows you to sit and bounce without having to walk three miles in your hallway. (I hate it when I find a picture of me online that I didn't know about first.)
  2. Mechanized Light
    This one goes to @abbyzeecee but we have an invaluable sound machine with a not so bright light. It's perfect for eye checks at 3:45 on the ball.
  3. Sleep sack swaddles a size bigger
    It's easier to get traction and make that straight jacket tight.
  4. White Noise App
    There truly is an app for everything and this app is for fucking saving your life.
  5. Pacifier clips
    Clip a pacifier to your baby or a toy or anything they tend to repeatedly drop on the floor- so simple so genius.

  6. Mirrors
    Doesn't work for the first month or two but as soon as they start to notice themselves in the mirror it's the perfect distraction to nip a crying fit in the bud.

  7. Grateful Dead
    You know how kids kind of seem like adults who are on all sorts of drugs? Well that goes for the music they love too

  8. Gripe water
    A.k.a. liquid silence
