Hey ya’ll, welcome to my new monthly series: Techy Tuesday. I am going to be talking about some of my favorite gadgets and tools, some extravagant and some not. These tools have helped me along since becoming a new mom. Some may be for my baby boy, Aksel, and some may be for me. But for the most part, what I have learned from my infant, mommy and baby happiness go hand in hand.
My Tool: The Swing
Since Bubba was born, he was very high-maintenance. Most newborns are, I think, but never having one before, their dependency blew my mind. He was always held, always hungry, and always in need of a diaper change.
For the first week and a half, we endured this with the help of numerous family members. Finally, we got smart and went to our favorite baby store to recruit some help. What did we come home with you ask?
Bubba’s first swing. Now, this did not always fix every problem; but it sure has brought me many hours in the past 3 months. These hours allowed me to do laundry, dishes, and, more than anything, schoolwork. Bubba loves to stare at the mirror and lights moving above him. In more recent times, he likes to sit up the seat so he can watch VeggieTales on the TV.
In addition to the mirror and lights, the top has an auxiliary cord with a place to put your phone like a screen at the top. This allows me to put on some of Aksel’s favorite ABC songs from YouTube and let him watch the videos while swinging.
When deciding to do this series, I did not even have to debate what techy tool to tell you about. Out of all of his toys and my gadgets, this has helped me the most. This Techy Tuesday tool is a definite must!
