Mornings look a little different now.

Thank you Playtexbaby for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

My mornings are very different now after adding another baby into the mix. Our precious Leighton joined our family on May 4th! Before two kids I wasn’t a morning person and I’m still not. Thankfully I have a ton of help from my amazing husband! On top of the help I am getting I am using some amazing Playtexbaby products!

Leighton is waking up every 3 hours and I am using the Playtex Baby™ Nurser®with Drop-Ins® Liners

bottles to feed her. This is the first time I’ve used these and I am hooked!!

The soft liner gently collapses like Mom’s breast for more natural breathing and

feeding rhythm- Clinically proven! I have had zero issues with these bottles and love that I just drop a liner in the bottle! It’s really convenient!

So I feed her, then I change her diaper and throw that dirty diaper away in her Playtex® Diaper Genie Expressions™,  and then soothe her back to sleep rocking her  with her Playtex Baby silicone pacifier!

Here’s a more accurate look into our morning:

Ainsley wakes up between 7-7:30. She grabs Jerod’s phone and plays on it until Jerod or I get up. Oakland sleeps until 8:00.

Leighton wakes up around 8:00  and helps me get her big brother and sister ready for the day! Well she doesn’t really help as much as she does just lay there and falls back asleep!

8:10 O and Ains eat their breakfast.

8:30 Oak leaves for school

9:00 I usually have my breakfast and coffee.

between 9:30- 11 depending if Ains has school or not we color, go for a walk, or sometimes I go back to sleep if Jerod is still home.

 I put L back to sleep during this time also and wash bottles and then catch up on emails.

#ForBetterBeginnings you begin each day with love and laughter. I think words of affirmation and affection are huge components of starting your day off on the right path!

    I’m not a morning person, either, even after 4 kids! Mornings are definitely busy when you have 3+ kids, especially with a baby. XOXO

    I’m so glad you found bottles that work for you. That was one of the hardest things with my sons reflux.

    I have never used a drop in liner before was always skeptical about them, great to hear such a positive review.

    Drop-in Liner are the BEST! I discovered them with my second baby and saves so much time not having to always be washing and sterilizing!
