It’s hard for me to believe that I gave birth to my first child over 7 years ago! I still remember the first time that I laid eyes on my beautiful baby girl. She was perfect in every way – even with a massive, massive cone head. ;-) I can recall the way that my husband and I checked her over from head to toe, and how excited and anxious that we felt when we left the hospital to take her home. It’s true what they say – we really did marvel at the fact that we were allowed to take her home – two people who knew next to nothing about babies.
In those early weeks after her birth I tried my best to get out of the house at least once a day – to run a quick errand or to make a trip to the store for all of those baby essentials that I thought I had to have. One thing that I noticed on these trips out is that at least one person would comment about how much hair my new baby had. It’s true – she was born with what I now refer to as a “wig”. It was a perfectly styled, dark black cap that was a bit startling to see on a newborn. At first I was a little sensitive to these comments – after all, you don’t want people to think that there is something wrong with your baby. And pregnancy hormones can make the most rational person feel crazy! In time I came to realize that people weren’t saying anything was wrong with my baby – or that she looked odd. They were simply marveling at my tiny newborn and using her hair to strike up a conversation…something that my tired, adult conversation deprived self eventually came to appreciate. Seven years later I have to say that my daughter has one of the prettiest heads of hair that I have ever seen.
One thing that I didn’t have to worry about when my oldest was a newborn was leaky diapers or harsh wipes. I learned early on that HUGGIES® Little Snugglers Diapers were perfect for her little butt – and prevented even the most massive blow out from soiling her outfit too. When my now 3 year old came along I used HUGGIES® Pure & Natural Diapers and I still keep HUGGIES NATURAL CARE® Wipes on hand both at home and in the car. All of these great products are available at Walmart store nationwide.
