Having a second child

Sleep deprived is the first word that comes to my mind when they ask me what is like to have a newborn in the home. Having a second child is no easy task but challenges you to become a better parent.

Its been two months since our little bundle of joy joined our little family and let me tell you, it’s definitely a different story with the second child. It’s like being a first time parent all over again. This little guy has changed our lives and we couldn’t be more happier because he is  absolutely a good baby!

At 2 Months, Junius:

  •  Is starting to strenghten those baby neck muscles during tummy time
  •  Smiles a LOT!
  • Loves to talk to mommy
  • Loves being in his MamaRoo
  • 2 month checkup and weighs 14lbs and is 23 inches long
  • his hair is more awesome than ever
  • only cries when he is hungry or needs a diaper change
  • breaks everyone’s heart– just too adorable.
  • had four vaccines- breaks my heart seeing him get those shots.

During his 2 month check up, we found out that Junius has a flat spot on his left side of his head. I was so concern at first, but I’m glad that it can be healed by practicing tummy time, laying on his right side and some stretching exercises. I’m hoping that by his fourth month check up, he will be back to normal and won’t be needing physical therapy. So glad to have a very supportive community on Instagram, thank you all who commented and left feedback.


We are just so glad that baby is now sleeping through the night for at least 6-7 hrs straight. Baby Junius goes to sleep at around 11pm and wakes up for his feeding at 6am. Many moms have asked me how did I managed that. I have no idea what to say but I would have to guess that it may be because I’m formula feeding as well. Breastfeeding Baby Junius was not what I expected. I was hoping to only breastfed him for at least 6months but I had trouble producing enough milk for him, sometimes I had mix feelings and was a little concern about myself. Then the flu took over our home and we were sick for a week, so I had to resort to formula feeding for some time until I recovered from the flu. Since then, I started to do half formula and half breastfeeding.

During the day, he only sleeps a few hours and is wide awake most of the day. I’ve had my hands full lately, that the only way I could clean the house, photograph my projects and blog, is to have our little Junius in the 4moms mamaRoo. The 4moms Mamaroo has to be the greatest inventions for moms! Is hands down my favorite “must”  newborn essential to have. Our guy enjoys being on his MamaRoo, relaxing, hearing his favorite tunes and staring at the attached mobile.

DSC_0588DSC_01104moms-review4Moms-Mamaroo-Reviews4Moms-mamaroo4momsI absolutely love 4moms products and the mamaRoo is definitely well worth the purchase for your baby. We have used our MamaRoo for a while now and works smoothly.

What we love about the mamaRoo:

– Detachable Seat cover that is machine washable. Our little guy had already his first incident and so glad I could just unzip it and toss it the laundry machine.

– Built in nature sounds, plus you can attach your iPhone or iPod to tune into your baby’s favorite lullaby .

– My favorite part about the mamaRoo is how it bounces up and down, down and sways and side to side; just like parents do when soothing the baby.

Have a question about the mamaRoo? Leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer your question. To purchase your own mamaRoo visit 4Moms Shop or search for a nearby store like BabiesRUs.

    okay, first item of business – how incredibly handsome is Junius! his hair is the most perfect thing ever! oh my goodnight nurse i just want to eat him i love him so! i have heard the absolute greatest things about the mamaroo! i actually posted on my facebook asking other moms out there if the mamaroo is worth it and i got an astounding YES! most moms said it was the only place their little one would sleep, others love the ability to attach their phones and play music – for me I love all of the different movements it makes! I am expecting my first next month and can’t wait to get a mamaroo!ReplyCancel

    When I was pregnant I fell in love with the mamaroo. It is the one item I really wanted. Sadly I do not own one…yet.

    I would love a mamaroo. My sweet girl
    Is 2 months, and wants to be held all the time. I love that, except when I need to eat, pee, or do chores. Also, can you feel a flat spot on your baby’s head? My girl always lays on her right side, and I’m thinking she is going to get one if she hasn’t already.ReplyCancel

    • Yes, he still has a flat spot on his left side. This month he will have his fourth month check up to see if he is going to need physical therapy and the helmet thing. Does your little have a flat spot?ReplyCancel

    I’m due with my little man in 6 weeks and I have been swooning over these 4moms products. My 15 month old never liked her swing or bouncer and she’s so attached now because my only option was to hold her. I would love to find a baby product that my little man loves so I don’t have a kid on each hip forever haha. P.S. I am hoping my guy is born with a head of hair like your’s! Dying over how cute he is! ♡ReplyCancel

    Great review! I would love one of these for my second baby. I have heard so many great things about this product!ReplyCancel

  • Kelly

    Your baby is adorable! His hair is awesome would you mind sharing what u use for his hair? I just had my second baby avout 5 months ago and they basically got the same hair, but its all over the place, people has told me to get him a haircut but i really dont want to! Please let us know what u use on his hair or if u gave him a haircut aswell? Thank you.
    Kelly from LondonReplyCancel

    • Hi Kelly!It’s been hard styling his hair and hubs doesn’t want me to cut his hair at all. We are letting his hair grow longer for his first two years. I’ve been using a ponytail to adjust his hair to make him a cool spike hair do. Have you tried California Baby Natural Hair Gel? I’ve been meaning to try it.ReplyCancel

    • Hi Kelly, I use a Oil Oil Formula from Palmer’s. I use very little and only after his hair is completely dry. thanks for visiting!ReplyCancel
