My mom arrived on Thursday night. She will be taking care of me and Sofia! She’s super excited for becoming grand-ma and we’re glad she’s here. 🙂 Star’s parents will arrive in 2 weeks. It’s going to be a full house…. all to welcome our beloved little girl Sofia. 🙂
This weekend was mainly dedicated to prepare for Sofia’s arrival = assembling!!!
Star assembled the stroller, baby jogger city mini, a gift from our dear friend Sarah and Bami. He also went to get the car seat installed. A friend gave us their Chicco carseat with the adapter for the stroller. So, we’re really ready to head to the hospital and bring Sofia back!!
For the first 4-6 weeks, we plan to have Sofia sleeping in our master room for easier night feeding. According to chinese tradition, women are not supposed to move around for the first 4 weeks because we’ll be really week physically. They recommend stay-in-bed for 2 weeks, none physical activity, no cold shower, no cold drink, and eat a menu of nutritious food that helps the recovery.
I decided not to have a bassinet because I want to transfer Sofia to her room as soon as possible, so a Pack n’ Play would do the trick.
we got the grace pack n play with bassinet
Star also assembled the fisher price bouncer
and the Fisher Price swing
both are beyond cute!!!! Sofia is such a lucky girl to have so many toys to play with!!! 😆 That’s another advantage of living in the US, things for babies are in reasonable price, and that we have plenty of room to put them! 😉
Nursery is almost done… I still need to get some frames and prepare the diaper station. Pictures soon! 🙂
Crossing few more items from the to-do list!
Choose a pediatrician. We went two places and decided to go with Northern Virginia Pediatric Associates. We liked the place, the doctors and that is 10 min away from home. Buy things for postpartum– got 4 nursing bras, nursing pads (disposable and reusable) Buy and install car seat and have it inspected
To-do list (plan to do all these next weekend)
- Prepare diaper station
- Pack hospital bag
- Finish nursery decor
- Wash everything new
- Decide on the breastpump. I’m between the Medela In Style Advanced and Freestyle.
ALMOST THERE!!! :D
