How to combat baby gas — tips from a third time mom

Thank you, Mommy’s Bliss, for sponsoring this post. All opinions about these products are my own.

As a mom to three little girls each exactly two years apart, you’d think I’d have the whole newborn thing down to a perfect science.

But alas, I did not. My 2-month-old slept like a dream the first six weeks but then started getting really gassy and fussy at night.

We’ve all been there, right? Your always smiling, sweet, happy , and cooing marshmallow of a babe flips a switch and becomes, at best, sad and crying and at worst, completely inconsolable for hours on end. The culprit? Gas.

I tried all the old tricks; I used gas drops; nothing was working. While I don’t love the idea of medication, especially for my new baby, my neighbor friend came to the rescue when she offered me a brand new bottle of some miracle gas drops. After giving them a try when my husband was out of town, I was hooked. Then when Mommy’s Bliss reached out about working together, I knew it was a match made in gassy baby heaven.

Why you need the HALO Bassinet

Thank you HALO for sending the swivel bassinet for me to try! This post contains affiliate links.

When my family was preparing for our third baby girl to arrive, we had a lot going on in our home – from moving around most of our major rooms and trying to figure out what new products to buy, we knew by now that babies don’t really need much.

But she would need a place to sleep.

We used a normal bassinet with my first two that worked fine, but I had hastily given it away to a painter when he was telling me he was getting ready to have his first.

But, it turns out it was a blessing in disguise because I always heard about the HALO Bassinets from mom friends and was thrilled to give the swivel model a try.

Spoiler alert – it’s amazing. I’m only sad I didn’t have it from the very start.

The one place you need to shop online as a mom

Thank you Pink Blush for sending me some clothes to review – all opinions are my own.

I see it every day in mom Facebook groups- where do you shop online? How do I dress my post partum body? Where can I find comfy, cute clothes that actually fit?

Enter Pink Blush to the rescue.

I’ve been shopping here for years, and they’re always my go-to pieces for date nights, everyday lounging, or casual yet stylish looks. Why? Because the fit is amazing, I always feel great wearing their clothes, and I know I’ll be comfortable- the perfect trifecta of mom fashion.

What’s even better is that they offer tons of nursing friendly options and everything is made with a woman’s body in mind. You can shop here all the way from pregnancy, post partum, when you’re nursing, and beyond – it’s not JUST for moms, but their stylish, comfortable fit makes it perfect for mommas.
