That first year of your baby’s life can be a blur. Too little sleep, too much uncertainty, and not enough appreciation for all those little moments that add up on their first birthday when you wonder where the time went. Luckily, I’ve been through this before so I know that I should make the most of baby’s first year while I can. Though I still need a reminder myself.
For me, part of making the most of baby’s first year is realizing that I can’t do it all. I made the decision to breastfeed, yet we also need to be prepared with bottles for those times when I have deadlines to meet or just need to recharge. Plus, dad likes to feed his baby, too. The NEW Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle with AirFree vent makes the switch easy on us and easy on our baby’s tummy.
Philips Avent is the #1 brand of baby products recommended by moms worldwide, and we were already using a set of their bottles before. The new Anti-colic bottle is designed to help reduce the amount of air ingested by keeping the nipple full of milk during feeding. This helps with common feeding issues such as colic, reflux, and gas.
Bottle feeding is more comfortable for me when I know my baby is comfortable and that is never more important than bedtime. As we do most of our bottle feeding at night when dad takes over so that I can get a few hours of sleep, the Philips Avent Anti-colic bottle is made for uninterrupted, comfortable feedings with less fussiness. Making it a better night for everyone.
Because a happy baby makes for a happy home and all the better to take in those first, fleeting moments of baby’s first year.
Take Lots of Pictures – Take pictures of everything and anything. But not to the point where you’re missing the moment.
Cherish Keepsakes – Make memory boxes of tiny newborn hats and socks to remember. Also, handprint, footprint, and thumbprint crafts like our Salt Dough Thumbprint Heart Ornaments are wonderful keepsakes.
Smile and Laugh – Because that’s really what we’ll remember more than anything.
Make it Easy on Yourself – Moms are superheroes, but we can’t do it all. Accept help, don’t sweat the small stuff, don’t worry about other opinions, and find what works for you to make the most of baby’s first year.
Keep it Simple – Products don’t have to be complicated to be the most useful. The Philips Avent Anti-colic bottles are designed with different flow rates to keep up with your baby’s growth, as well as parts that mix and match. Giving moms the freedom of choice to pick what is best for their baby and the opportunity to move on to more cherished moments.
