As a new mom, I can remember feeling like I didn’t know much about being a mom. Overtime, I learned more and being a parent got a whole lot easier. What really makes being a parent fun is when you discover baby hacks. You know, a hack is when you discover something that makes your life a whole lot easier. I am so excited to share some of these hacks with you because it will make your life as a mom, so much easier.
Use a Pool Noodle
I have used pool noodles for many things in my life, but nothing quite like this. As you can see, from the picture, using a pool noodle when carrying the baby’s car seat can make life easier. If you have never carried a baby in a car seat, you have no idea how heavy it can be. A pool noddle helps take some of the pressure off of your hand or arm when you’re carrying it.
Save Space in the Diaper Bag
Want to save space in the diaper bag? Give this hack a try! You can see from the picture that everything is rolled up into a sock. How easy is this to do and keep in the diaper bag? I can imagine having about 20 of these in the diaper bag and never going without an extra outfit again.
I mean this in the best way, but sometimes we have clingy kids. At one time or another, every parent has that one child that doesn’t like to be left alone. I love the idea of this glove. I think it is smart, safe, and a great way to save your sanity. You can’t possibly keep your hand on your baby the whole time he/she sleeps. This baby hack will help save your sanity in so many ways.
Listen, baby clothes take up a ton of room in those drawers. I have learned that when you roll up the baby clothes, it saves a ton of room. Look at the before and after picture. It’s astonishing as to how much room you can save. Plus, it doesn’t take as much time to roll something up as it does to try to organize it in a drawer. Give this a try, I bet you have lots more room in your dresser that you didn’t have before.
Under the Bed Light
I cannot tell you how many times I have tripped in the baby’s room trying to get to her or something in the room. This under the bed light is so genius. I wish I would have thought about it when I had my youngest baby. You could do this in any of your children’s room. They will have a little nightlight and you will be able to see if you need to go up there. So much better than turning on the light and blinding yourself or your kiddos.
And as your babies become toddlers, this DIY sink hack will save your back – promise! All you need is a soap bottle!
