Being a first time parent is daunting, heck becoming a parent anytime is enough of a big deal itself. The last thing you want to be overwhelmed with is, that thing, that is supposed to, suck snot out of the baby’s nose to ease their nasal congestion. I promise you there is such a thing. And as flu season approaches us, more and more parents will be getting their little snot suckers out, literally.

It has been 4 months since baby Kovah has entered our lives. Who’s bright idea was it to start their own blog in their last trimester of pregnancy??? On the plus side, the time has allowed me to really venture down memory lane with the most useful baby items. Some of the items are from when we had our first child, Remy and it has either lasted since or has been repurchased because it was so well used.
