Grow with Me Baby + Big Kid Essentials
I feel like we’re in three different stages right now with our kids. My big man is officially a big kid and doesn’t really need his mom anymore now that he’s almost seven. My older daughter is in the stage where she THINKS she doesn’t need me anymore, but she really still does then the baby is staring at her two older siblings with eyes wide and wishing she could be like them. That being said (and thanks to my friends at Silikids, MAM, baby, & pediped for sharing some of their signature products to test out,) I’m figuring out how to make all three feel independent while still guiding them and being their mom at the same time.
Being a mom for the third time, I’m learning some hacks to not only make my life easier, but teach my kids without it feeling like work on their part.
 Hacks for Moms to Make Life Easier
  1. These awesome Siliskin Straw Tops are perfect for your toddler who thinks she’s bigger than she is! These fit on any cups – take them anywhere! I keep a few in my diaper bag and whip it out when out to eat so she can use a big cup like a big girl, but avoid messes.
  2. The Siliskin Glass Cup for Kids is a perfect alternative to traditional plastic cups. Being BPA, BPS, Phthalate, & Lead Free as well as covered with silicone protective sleeves, it’s a great alternative to a kids cup and a big cup for your growing toddler. Mine love to drink out of theirs at the dinner table and be more like mommy & daddy!
  3. The Silimap, a portable silicone placemat folds easily to be kept in your diaper bag to use while out! When we go to restaurants, I like to put a placemat down for my kiddos to avoid a mess (and germs as much as possible,) but this one is fun for them too! You can also draw on it with non permanent markers & pens, so perfect hack for moms with toddlers in tow to help occupy them in a restaurant.

Grow with me Baby Feeding Favorites

Now that our little nugget is going on nine months old, I’m giving her a little more freedom when eating. Rather than just feeding her by a spoon every meal, I’m trying to let her use her own hands and feed herself. This awesome mesh feeder is perfect for bananas avocado, and melons to name a few of her favorites! baby has everything from bottle feeding to toddler feeding to cover your needs as your baby grows.

Check out a peek of little Lakelyn sporting her cute baby bib & trying out the flexible spoon! Head to my Instagram & check out baby for more!

Teething Tips with Mam


Teething has been tough this go around. For some reason, it seems to be affecting our babe more than the other two. I’ve started to figure out little tips for helping to ease her suffering during the day.. in the car especially she seems to really be chomping down and fussy these days. I love these Mini Cooler Teethers by MAM! It has a clip, so I clip it right onto her car seat. Since she never got into a paci, it works great for car rides and in general when she needs a little soothing. It has a cooling effect so I can tell it definitely does sooth her aching gums.  Whether your baby uses a pacifier or not, keep a few of these on hand for the tough teething days! I love that there’s no extra work for mom. No freezing, or keeping it in the fridge – – parenting made easy! BUT, you can also snag this Cooler Teether that is refrigerated for extra relief too!

Grow with me Style


From pre-walker like our baby in the house to running a marathon like my big guy, appropriate footwear is important. If there’s one tip I have as a mom, it’s not to skimp on footwear for your kids.
