Celebrity: Actress Amy Davidson Shares Her Experience as a New Mom

Becoming a mother has been one of the most extraordinary journeys of my life. From getting pregnant to my wonderful pregnancy, yes it truly was wonderful! To now having such a lovely son. Lennox is so kind and loving and happy. Everything I told him he was when he was inside my belly! I think it’s so important to talk to your children whether they are inside and especially once they are outside. I tell him every day how wonderful he is. How nice and happy he is. And he is! It’s such a blessing being his mother. This little guy was smiling right from the start. Awake or asleep, he would grin from ear to ear. Nothing warms my heart like that toothless grin of gums!

I think I am finally adjusting well to motherhood. There were some upsets with the birth and delivery, nothing went as I wished it would. But that was a huge learning lesson for me. We can make “plans” but we have to be flexible. Lennox was three weeks early which left me feeling gipped. I felt like I got robbed of three weeks of him growing and thriving in my belly. Having him inside was safe and comforting for us both. This new venture in the outside world felt so foreign to me. I did not want a c-section. I was terrified of it. But that’s what was best for Lennox. That’s what he needed, so that’s what we did. And he is perfectly healthy and that’s ALL that matters… Now that some time has passed, I realize more clearly that I had to let go of some of the control. I still do.

When Lennox would cry and I didn’t know how to fix it, I would get upset. It was so hard for me to not be able help him and know how to “fix” the problem. Now I realize it’s just his way of communicating. He’s ok. I’m doing a good job and we are figuring it all out 🙂

So now at almost 8 weeks, we are continuing to figure each other out daily. Every day I learn something new about my little man. Just last night he slept until 2:15am! No fuss. It was amazing! Where as before, he would wake up right around midnight angry and hungry! This kid likes to eat! He’s making up for lost time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lennox was born March 1, 2016 and weighed 5lbs, 1oz and 19in. Now he is 9lbs, 7oz!!! I mean this dude is a piggy!

Lennox is a character in Shakespeare’s Macbeth. I wish I could say that because I’m an actress I was inspired by the theater and meaning behind his name. But I can’t. Lol! I asked people on Instagram their favorite boy names and Lennox was on the list!

Plus it sounds great with Lockwood 😉 Lennox Sawyer Lockwood! Has a ring to it!

One of my favorite moments is after feeding and burping Lennox, he starts to slip into a deep sleep on my chest. I can tell by his breathing pattern when he is out like a light! Those moments of cuddling and snuggling are so incredibly special. I kiss him and smell him and hold him as closely as I can. Those cooing sounds are music to my ears.

And then he smiles. He smiles and I’m mush. I can’t get enough of him❤

I never knew how strong the bond could be between mother and child. I never knew until now…

image5On a good night Lennox sleeps maybe a 5 hour stretch. On a difficult night he can be fussy for hours and that’s rough! Every day is different, which doesn’t make it easy to figure him out!

But we’re getting there…😊

I would say that one of the more challenging parts of being a new mom is exactly that. Trying to figure out what the baby needs, when he needs it. At first it made me feel insufficient. Like why couldn’t I figure out what my little boy needed? But now I’m realizing that it’s all a learning process. He may not even know what he needs at that particular moment! Every day that passes I start understand him a little bit more. I gain more and more confidence in myself as a mother and it’s so incredibly rewarding.

There are so many firsts with Lennox. Our first day at the beach, our first trip to the farmers market, our first grocery shopping trip, our first trip home to Arizona where I’m from. The list goes on and on… I can’t say that there’s one thing I’m most excited about during his first year. Everything excites me. Every smile, every time he coos in my ear, every time he starts to do his own unique giggle. Everything excites me! I am looking forward to all of it!

From actually getting pregnant to delivering a baby is such an incredible journey. I thank God that I was able to experience this and bring the most amazing little boy into the world! I feel so blessed to be part of the mommy club now.

She was totally surprised and was even more speechless when told her she was receiving all of the fabulous products featured.

The Boob Baby Bottle Has What You Need for Consistent Feedings

JvNnX-f5pHYraichfML4GF7WyJQzLI_Blgr2egOHplI,mQPssPOYBXAKBGoazbrkOKlCHWZnipnhK4x9D_468j0,u9_0-RMJUpL3Pr9s9I9e1MnC9CdiQrgPZNvF-g1SVUc

Choosing a baby bottle is one of the most personal decisions you’ll make in regard to the products you’ll use with your new little one. Let’s face it, this is a product you are going to put in your baby’s mouth so considerations are important. There are several reasons why the Joovy Boob should be on your list of bottles systems to consider. First and foremost, the Boob is intended to promote a consistent and enjoyable feeding experience for your baby.

Why consistency? Consistency is important because you want baby to have a pleasant and enjoyable meal whether bottle feeding or breastfeeding. Bottle fed babies count on you to deliver their meals on time and to their liking. It’s nice when they know what to expect as the nipple comes towards their hungry mouths! And, consistency for you in an easy to use, clean and reassemble bottle.

Nursing babies have a consistent experience. When babies nurse at the breast, they typically latch on, nuzzle down and have the perfect meal by mother, herself. Latch, check; temperature, check; flow, check.  The experience is consistent and babies know they are getting the same satisfying meal each and every time they latch on.

We’ve thought this through and feel the Boob is the best baby bottle for babies, for exclusively bottle-feeding or transitioning between bottle and breast. All babies deserve a pleasant, enjoyable and consistent experience.

What are the reasons I should consider the Joovy Boob Baby Bottle over other baby bottles?

1. New advanced nipple design PLUS the new Natually Nood Nipple that introduces texture
2. CleanFlow Vent.
3. Choice of bottles/material types
4. Custom Insulator and
5. A complete set of accessories that complete the feeding solution

So, what’s so unique about these features? Let’s delve a little deeper into the details to help you determine if this is the bottle for your little ones’ feeding time.

Nipple Design. The Joovy nipple design helps promote natural latching so your baby doesn’t have to relearn between bottle and breast each time they transition. It is also uniquely structured to be soft, yet prevents nipple collapse when the baby is feeding. This allows busy parents (and babies) to easily transition from breast to bottle. We’ve also made the nipple to a European standard as there currently is no U.S. baby bottle nipple standards in place. What this means is that the Boob nipple walls are thicker which helps prevent nipple collapse, a frustrating experience for babies. Also, per EU standards, nipple flow holes are molded rather than punctured or cut giving them consistency in flow rates. We offer 5 flow rates, from preemie for newborns to an X- Cut for older babies.

Naturally Nood. The introduction of the Naturally Nood Nipple shows our commitment to breastfeeding. We know babies love the shape of the Boob nipple, and now, with the introduction of texture, babies will have one more consistency during their bottle feeding. The Naturally Nood Nipples have added wrinkles, bumps and ridges. There is also a moc areola. 586__41076.1438817379.1280.1280

The CleanFlow Vent. This is the advanced technology we’ve introduced to the Boob. This is currently the only quad vented, internal vent system available in a baby bottle. It is high tech and simple at the same time and you won’t need to spend time cleaning and assembling multiple vent parts. Plain and simple, venting is important because you want baby to take in milk or formula, not air. TheCleanFlow Vent is a plastic ring vent with a silicone liner. The four notches on the ring fit perfectly into the rim of the bottle (female side) to create quad vents. This allows properly venting, no matter how the bottle is held.  It is extremely easy to clean and you don’t have to touch any part that will come in contact with the liquid.

Bottles choices. The Boob Baby Bottle are available in a high quality Polypropelene (PP) plastic and an ultra-premium Polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) plastic. The ultra-premium PPSU bottle stands up to repeated sterilization and, like glass, will not absorb odor or stains. The gray tint makes milk look whiter in the bottle, offering great appeal. The high quality PP bottles are the same exquisite design and offer excellent value. All of the materials used are BPA, BPS, PVC, phthalate and lead free.

Insulator. The custom fit insulator is intended to maintain the desired temperature longer while feeding baby. It is clinically proven that feeding at body temperature provides a better nutrition absorption. The average feeding takes approximately 20 – 25 minutes and the insulator will help maintain a consistent temperature while baby nurses on the bottle.

Accessories. The Joovy Breast Pump Adapter and Sealing Cap make it quick and easy
to pump breast milk directly into the bottle and then go straight to refrigerated storage. Moms love the convenience of pumping directly into the container rather than having to transfer after pumping. Less handling means efficiency. The Boob Breast Pump Adapter fits most breast pumps.

Cleaning. The Rotating Brush makes cleaning quick and efficient. All components are dishwasher safe. Reassembly of the Boob is easy and effortless.
