Humbled. #bfing

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

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

Review: Urbo, Steel Wonder

We love the Mamas and Papas Urbo stroller.  Not only is it a complete looker, it is as functional as it is stylish.  This is a stroller that really appeals to Dads, case in point, my husband who loves to push this pram around.  There is so much to love about the Urbo.  At first glance, what might surprise you is how incredibly light weight this stroller is.  The secret is the aluminum chassis which looks like really heavy steel, but isn’t.  Considering the amount of strollers I have road-tested, trust me when I say, this is a light-weight system
