Newborn Essentials on a Budget

Could be days, could be weeks… bags kind of packed, car seat base is still not installed, but we’re ready for you little babe! Baby fever is a solid 10/10 here in our household. We have sorted through most of Parker’s baby clothes [talk about sentimental], brought up all our favorite newborn essentials and now, […]

Parker’s Birth Story

Are you sitting down, good. I have always kind of hated my birth story. I felt like my body betrayed me. I kept thinking “why”… Throughout my pregnancy I had only one birth plan in mind, I wanted a natural birth, no drugs, especially no epidural! At each check up appointment with my OBGYN, everything was […]

Our food journey-starting solids

Mama don’t fear-meal time tricks are here! Starting solids was…lets just say different. My babes HATED IT and I am sure I am not alone on this. He would gag and turn his head in refusal. It was quite hilarious but also very frustrating. Our doctor recommended to us that we should start with a […]

Let’s talk diapers!

I know…diapers. Riveting, right? But hey, late night, early morning, mid-day, diaper changes are going to happen. It’s something that all parents are familiar with. There is like a gazillion diaper brands on the market, but it’s honestly trial and error when it comes to finding out what type or brand you like. Quantity and […]

Baby products I wish I knew about sooner

Mama’s (+ Dada’s) this ones for you. Creating a baby registry was probably one of the most difficult things for me. There are soooooo many baby products on the market and it’s really hard to focus on what’s actually needed/helpful and what’s just “cool”. Especially trying to do all this while prego, forget about it! […]

My baby doesn’t sleep!

I remember when weekends meant sleeping in, enjoying that mid-morning cup of joe while relaxing with my feet up, but…my baby doesn’t sleep! When baby doesn’t sleep, no one sleeps! Although, since I am exclusively breastfeeding and a stay-at-home mommy, I told my husband I would do ALL the late night feedings and diapers. Man […]

Dear Nursing Pillow

Motherhood, awe! The blood, tears and joy of my journey would not be the same without my nursing pillow. When Parker finally latched after what seemed like days of struggling, I couldn’t stop my emotions. I can’t believe he’s doing it! I can’t believe I’m doing it! It felt like the biggest miracle ever. This […]

Why I dont post full frontal pictures of my child

I love social media, it’s a great tool for communication, I can definitely admit that. I love being able to stay in touch with friends and family and I also like when people “like” and comment on my posts. That being said, I didn’t post a lot about being pregnant on Instagram or anywhere else. […]

Postpartum Body

Many moms-to-be don’t stick to their regular workout routines during pregnancy. If you’re one of those, like myself, don’t be so hard on yourself. Your body was created for an amazing journey, be proud of all you are and all of the stories your marks and scars may tell. I started to ween myself away from […]

Lactation Cookies: Increasing Milk Supply

When my son was born, I made a commitment to myself to try my best to breastfeed him for a least a year. In the beginning, it was really hard. We had a few latching issues, along with super sore and bleeding nipples, but I carried on through it until it became easier (we are […]
