This is Sienna’s Umbilical Cord when she was born.

Did you know that babies’ umbilical cords can get knots in them if the cord is too long while they are in the womb? I didn’t either, or I just didn’t think about it until Sawyer was born. They said that he was a miracle baby, because if the knot in his cord would have tightened, he may not have made it through the pregnancy or through the delivery. 

When we got pregnant with Sienna, I had anxiety wondering if she would also have a knot in her cord. There is no way for doctors to track or monitor this, so we just had to wait and see. Not only was I anxiety-ridden from the possible knot in Sienna’s cord, but we were also in the middle of a pandemic. Being pregnant and being an essential worker during the pandemic also brought on a whole new set of challenges. I was constantly worried I would come in contact with the virus and my family and unborn child would be at risk. To help ease my anxiety I found a couple of products that I LOVE!

Baby Dopplers Sonoline B- Heartbeat Tracker:

Having the doppler allowed me to feel more at peace when it came to worrying about Sienna having a knot in her cord. Whenever I was worried, I could pull out the doppler and check on her. Sometimes it took a few minutes to find her, because she liked to hide in my hips, but once I found her, there was nothing like sharing that experience with Jason and Sawyer in the comfort of our own home. The heartbeat tracker has a backlit LCD screen making it easy to use at any time of the day. It has High Quality Speakers and a 10-hour battery life, utilizing two Double AA Batteries. 

Baby Doppler Duo Smart Ear & Forehead Thermometer:

Did you know that you aren’t supposed to use an in-ear thermometer on infants until at least 6 months of age? Already having Sawyer at home, I needed a device that would work with both kids. That’s where the Baby Doppler Duo comes in. It allows me to use the Earpiece for sawyer and Forehead reader for Sienna. The thermometer is FDA certified and there is an app to track each child’s temperature. The app also makes it easy to show the doctors the trend of their temperatures without me having to remember off the top of my head or writing them down.

I didn’t mention itchy skin or stretch marks above, but I have never been as itchy as I was when I was pregnant. With Sawyer, I had the PUPPs rash and earned stretch marks. Luckily, with Sienna I didn’t have PUPPs, but I did get more stretch marks.  

MamaDerma Stretch Mark Cream & Prevention Oil:

Whenever I was feeling itchy or irritated when I was pregnant with Sienna, I would use a belly oil to help moisturize the skin and relieve the symptoms. Once the oil was absorbed into the skin, I would use the cream on my stretch marks to help prevent them from getting worse with the reparative ingredients that are used in the cream. The cream is easy to apply with the massaging roller head, saving your hands from having to be washed after each application. Throw it in your purse or diaper bag for an on-the-go, easy way to help relieve irritation, no matter where you are.
