Skin to Skin + Pure Love

“This post was sponsored by WaterWipes as part of an Ambassador Program for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.”


I can’t believe my little Graham is going to be one next month. I think this past year with him went by even quicker than the first year with Brooks.

Maybe it was more of a blur because there were two littles! Ha!

Graham was born on Labor Day, ironically enough  {Check out Graham’s Birth Story + Brooks’ Birth Story Part 1 & Part 2} and it’s so crazy to look back at our first few moments, hours + days together and seeing how much both he and Brooks have grown. I can’t believe Brooks will be 3 in January, but that’s another story for a different day.


When I was prepping for delivery with each of my boys, I didn’t really have much of a birth plan for either of them – just a safe delivery for mom + babe, hopefully a easy latch to start our breastfeeding journey together and skin to skin.  That was all I could really hope for since I knew early on you can’t really plan on much when it comes to giving birth – so I’m glad I was able to really focus from the beginning on the little things that matter.


Skin to skin contact immediately after delivery was really important to me. I knew it was something simple we could do to make the little’s tradition from womb to world a little easier and an extra little treat for mom to get those first newborn cuddles in. I also believe skin to skin is important in helping you make your milk as well as reduces baby stress or any pain from delivery and the warmth and comfort can help them sleep too!

Side Note: Can you tell who is who in these newborn pictures? Ha! Brooks or Graham?


Right after each of my boys were born we immediately did skin to skin and even in the early newborn days there after. It was a special moment for sure and I totally believe in the fact that it calms and comforts and soothes newborns. I love the WaterWipes Pure Love video because it highlights the importance of skin-to-skin contact between Mom and Baby.

I’ve been a fan of WaterWipes since I was introduced to them with Brooks. He had some serious diaper rash as a Little little and once we started using WaterWipes, it went away! WaterWipes are amazing because they are a chemical free baby wipe that contains only two ingredients, 99.9% pure Irish water and 0.1% grapefruit seed extract.


They are durable and effective without containing any of the harmful chemicals that may be found in other baby wipes, proving to be a safer, natural option for your little one. I use them with diaper changes, have them on every level of my house, use them to clean up messy hands or sticky fingers and there’s no funky taste or smell. The littles barely even notice them because they are just like a wet cloth with water!

Definitely one of my favorite baby products to date. If you haven’t tried them before, be sure to pick up a pack next time you are in the store, you can thank me later!
