The NEW 65 Pound LATCH Rule

INAM109

Here are some easy tips to think about: The three most […]

The Stork comes home. #TheStork

IMG_20131111_160127868_HDR

{ disclosure: This post is sponsored by The Motherhood and The Stork. As always ALL opinions expressed in this post are my own. } Fertility is a very emotional and private issue.  Even my own personal fertility issues, while in the past are still very private, between my husband and I only.  We don’t talk much about that period in our lives. In fact, there was very little talk about fertility during that time overall.  A part of it is my culture, but a part of it is the overwhelming disappointment of a process that we assume is suppose to happen […]

Humbled. #bfing

IMG_20131111_160127868_HDR

When you’ve been successfully breastfeeding for as long as I have been, it’s hard to imagine an obstacle I haven’t tackled before.  A nursing strike was never something I thought I would have to handle. The stress of Luca on a breastfeeding strike was immense.  It was simply something I could not and would not accept.  It was literally breaking my heart.  Each time I brought him to the breast, he screamed.  He arched.  He kicked.  He thrashed.  He cried.  I cried.  Despite the well meaning friends who insisted he must be weaning and that WE’D be okay, it certainly […]

REVIEW: Your First Line of Defense in Child Safety with Safety 1st

48409-FS

4 kids later, each one so very different than each other and you can bet we’ve tried every safety product out there.  My oldest was the quickest to explore and eventually walk.  My second, had no fear of edges or falls.  My third was hospital-prone and by the last one, I am well prepared for anything, mostly in part to Safety 1st.  I have been using their time tested products from the very first child almost 10 years ago.  Which is why I am proud to be a Safety 1st Ambassador.   Products like their Grip ‘n Twist Door Knob […]
