The Mommy Pooch has always been a reference to the hanging belly that is “leftover” after you have delivered your baby. While some women are quick to lose the pooch by a couple weeks to months postpartum, most struggle with it. It took me 9 months to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, and even
The newborn phase is the make it or break it phase of breastfeeding. It is also the most difficult. You have a small time window to figure out how to breastfeed because your milk supply and ability to support your baby exclusively depends on it. It’s a race between the breast and the bottle.
Every first-time expecting mom would like to know what she should put on her baby registry. There are just so many products and choices that it can often times feel overwhelming to choose the items you actually need. When it was my turn, I filled up my registry with all the items I thought I
This year marks our baby’s first Christmas! I already await the Christmas season yearly because it’s my favorite time of the year, but this year will be extra special.

So I have been meaning to write this post as it has been an essential component to my sanity as a mother, and I believe most mothers would resonate with it. How in the world do you get things done with a baby?! It feels like they need attention 24/7! When and how do moms
The inspiration for this post stems from my own personal breastfeeding experience through which I realized that breastfeeding was much more difficult than I thought it would be. When I was asked if I would be breastfeeding, my first reply was, “Of course!”. I mean I had heard about how important it was, but, honestly,
Baby’s first cold/flu is probably every parent’s worst nightmare. As a parent, I myself dread being sick. Now, seeing my little baby struggle through the symptoms of a cold is just heartbreaking! It seems that there isn’t much that I could do to help. For the most part, that is true, getting through the
Bath time in our house was not easy, to say the least. Some babies enjoy baths while others absolutely dread it (ie. ours)! I like to compare baby baths to handling a wet bar of soap, except babies are squirmier. Add the stress of a crying fragile baby (especially a newborn) and you might as
