This may seem strange for a nursing/postpartum recommendation, but stay with me here. When you have a newborn, the majority of the time they are either in your arms or on your breast. I found that when I was nursing, my mind would wonder to important things I needed to do or follow up with. While in a sleep deprived haze, a thought would enter my brain and leave like it was never there. Seventy five percent of the conversations with my husband started with, “Wait, I was going to tell you something… I forgot…” With Alexa, I could ask her what time it was (something I was constantly wondering in the newborn period), to start a timer, to set a reminder, read the news, or to play lullabies. The fact that I could just use my voice was so important, because sometimes I would locate my phone, pick it up, and forget why I was looking for it in the first place. (Now that I have a toddler, I mostly say, “Alexa, play ‘Baby Shark.'”) Alexa can be used on devices such as the Echo Dot, which is on sale for $29.99 and eligible for Prime.
