The Little Things Matter – How Love Is In The Details

#LoveIsInTheDetails. This is the hashtag we’ve been using as part of my partnership with Philips Avent. As a mom, this resonates with me. I know that the little things matter.

I know that the little moments all add up and forge our relationships, drive our child’s growth, and create long-lasting bonds. I know those little details are all going to be memories one day, and I’ll eventually look back and miss those little moments. A hand to hold, a diaper that needs changing, an extra hug at bedtime. The little things.

Focus on The Little Moments

When I make the decision to use a product for my baby, this is why I want it to be a product I know will work, from a company I trust. I want to use products that are best for my baby so I can focus on those little moments and not worry about whether or not I’m making the right decisions on things. Things like how to feed my child shouldn’t be hard decisions. Philips Avent has been making it easy for a long time and the bottles are ones I recommend to anyone.

I’ve been using the Avent Classic Bottles for nine years now (that’s four kids), and the one-piece anti-colic system that is integrated into the nipple makes these bottles so easy to use and clean. Philips Avent is a name I trust, and the Classic Bottles have always worked well for us, making feeding time simple and enjoyable no matter who is feeding the baby.

When the Little Things Matter – For the Last Time

My youngest, now six months old, is getting to the point where he is almost able to hold his own bottle. I’m a little sad at the fact that he’s moved on from the Natural bottles that we use when I am primarily breastfeeding because this means that soon he won’t be using a bottle at all, and soon he’ll be walking and talking and — oh, all those little moments that happen when they are young!

Little Things Matter
My youngest rolling over to get his toy, he was so excited!

These will be the last little moments I get to experience so each one is a bit more emotional for me. #LoveIsInTheDetails really rings true, because I know these moments are not here long. Perhaps if I can slow time down and make them last just a bit longer……

      I know, my kids are still kids and yet I still miss and cherish those moments from the past. I think it is important to not let life push us to forget the little moments 🙂

    Those bottles are great, I believe I had some along the years. What a fun giveaway and super helpful for any parent of babies. Those memory making moments are worth investing in too, because the kids grow way too quickly!

      Yes, I’m sad for that to start happening. My oldest is 9 and he still likes hanging out with us, but does like to spend time with his friends. It will be coming all too soon!

      That is so true Scott. I have two teenagers. My oldest moved out last August and doesn’t want much to do with me. It makes me sad but she is an adult now and I have to let her spread her wings to fly.

    I totally get this one. The little things make it all worth it, and while it’s amazing to watch the kids grow up, when they hit those milestones, we see some of those little things pass by for the last time.

        My kids are still young, but I always get sucker punched in the stomach when they do something for the last time. When my youngest started walking exclusively, and I realize that the crawling days were over, I sobbed.

    I doubt I’ll ever have another baby, so I’ll never get those late night feeding snuggles again. My girl would only take the Avent bottles and pacis.

    You know, it really is in those small moments that memories are made. I remember sitting on my Dads lap while he read to me as a kid. No matter what he was doing he would take the time to do so. I love doing the same for my kids and love making every moment count.

    All my kids are grown ups now, so the little milestones that give me joy nowadays are from my grandchildren. It seems like they are growing up so fast, I wish they could just stay little cuddly babies for a longer time.

    I have 3 boys and have lived by this philosophy! Of course my baby is now 6. However I remember relying on avent when I returned back to work. The right bottle like avent can make the transition from breast to bottle so much easier!

    I loved Avent bottles too. I bought them to use with my kids, but most of them would not take any bottle at all. Oh well, we tried! We were able to use the lids for our Avent sippy cups though! Love how they make interchangeable parts.
