    When I had my second child my mom helped pay for a sitter. She would help with the kids and do some cooking and laundry. It was incredible to have the help when I was delirious from lack of sleep.

    This is a wonderful list. So many useful ideas.

    I love this list! Please, if I ever have another newborn, sign me up for a day at the spa, a photo shoot with baby and cleaning service. I’ll be using lots of these ideas as gifts for my friends who are having their first or second babies.

    Dont forget about new dads!! Check out to show your man how much you appreciate everything he does! “IM THE DADDY” gear is perfect for any father or father to be who wants to flaunt his title of daddy while being comfy and trendy! So remember to show your hubby how much you care by showering him with love and presents from!
