Hooray for Boob!

As I’ve written about plenty of times before, breastfeeding is an important choice I make for my family. Not only does it provide healthy and natural nutrition for my little one, but it is super convenient and free(!).  I know breastfeeding doesn’t always work out for everyone, so I am grateful it has been a [...]


No Bake Lactation Cookies

When I received the shipment of the Kangaroo Tube Top from MilkandBaby.com, a recipe for lactation cookies was very smartly tucked inside. What a clever idea! As a new mom purchasing nursing wear, I was very happy to find this little surprise! While my milk supply is well-established with no sign of diminishing, I like [...]


Kangaroo Top + GIVEAWAY

Before the arrival of baby Ben, I researched on-line for breastfeeding-friendly tops and bras. Breastfeeding is an important choice for me, and I’ve found that having shirts that accommodate this choice make life a lot easier.  So, when I stumbled upon the Kangaroo Tube Top from milkandbaby.com I was immediately intrigued.  It looked so snuggly and [...]


A Little Moment in Time

As a parent, I am all too aware of the passing of time.  How quickly my oldest daughter became 4! My 2 year old son suddenly grew into a little man!  Four month-old Vivian already has a peaceful and joyful personality that seems to radiate from her body.  Before kids, a year felt like a [...]


Undercover Mama Nursing Shirt + GIVEAWAY!!

As I’ve written about before, breastfeeding is an important choice I make for my family.  Perhaps the best part about it is that Vivian’s food is always readily available no matter where we go.  I don’t have to worry about packing bottles or formula or water. Now that a feeding routine is established, breastfeeding is [...]


ENOUGH of the Mommy Wars. Please?

By now just about everyone and her mother has weighed in on the controversial TIME Magazine cover.  I figured I might as well toss in my two cents for whatever it may be worth. At first, I wasn’t particularly bothered by the cover.  While I have no intention of breastfeeding my 4 year old, I [...]


Tiny Tummy Troubles

Poor little Vivian! She struggles a bit with tummy troubles, and her tears and frustrated expressions break my heart.  I think she has sensitivities to some of the foods I eat, so I’m trying my best to avoid things that I think might be causing her distress.  So far I’ve figured out that Brussels sprouts [...]


My New Favorite Nursing Bra

As I have written about before, breastfeeding is an important choice I make for myself and my family.  While it can take a few weeks for mom and baby to get the hang of it, once a routine is established breastfeeding is wonderfully easy and convenient.  I am so grateful it has worked out for [...]


Homemade Nursing Pads

Breastfeeding is important to me and my family.  When Evelyn was born nearly four years ago I made a commitment to nurse her for a year, and it became such a normal part of our routine that I couldn’t imagine doing anything different with Mack and now with Vivian.  Much to my delight, the first [...]


The Co-Sleeping Conundrum

_DSC0811

With less than two weeks to go before Baby #3 is due to arrive, we are busy getting everything ready.  I can’t believe a little baby will be sleeping in our home so soon!  When we brought Evie and Mack home from the hospital, they both slept next to me in the bassinet attachment of [...]
