There is no denying that every baby is born with their very own personality and now you're really starting to see that emerge! Whether your buddy is silly or more serious, we bet you are loving this time of really getting to know each other.

At this point, you're probably feeling like your baby changes by the minute, and watching this transformation is so much fun. But let's face it: Their increasing mobility and newfound independence can throw a mama for a major loop. Just when you start to feel like you've mastered this new mom thing, your baby goes and changes the game.

As you also know by now, life isn't slowing down very much. Some mamas prefer diving right back into their "former life" as soon as possible after their baby's arrival; others are only starting to dip their toes back into those waters. You do you, mama!

Either way, adding these products to your personal and parenting toolkits can make these transitions so much easier (and more enjoyable, too!).

But thanks to Brazillian birth photographer Janaina Oliveira and a baby boy named Noah, parents around the world are now better able to imagine what their baby's world looked like between the ultrasound picture and their first breath.
