    Several weeks back, I had the opportunity attend another fabulous Mom Matters luncheon with Charlotte Parent about balancing work, family, and life.  You might remember the topic from a few moths ago and all of the important take away’s about being a media savvy parent, so I was anxious to hear Carson Tate & Maureen Carlomagno talk about balancing it all. Being a mom of three kids, balancing each of their schedules and needs along with my own and work with this blog can sometimes make my life rather hectic an...

Breastfeeding my third baby now has come with a lot of lessons learned over mistakes I made or things I didn’t know from the first time around. I remember not having the faintest clue about things like a hands free pumping bra, or essential nursing products I would later come to think of as a necessity. One thing I have come to be rather picky about though is a good and comfortable nursing bra. How many times have you tried a nursing bra that ended up being so uncomfortable, stretched out, didn’t give you enough support, you...

Our summer days have been a little different than the usual poolside lounging from morning ’til night, long vacations on the beach, and cruising from one playdate to the next like it has been in the past. Summer with a newborn is a little bit different and before I leave my house even for just a 15 minute grocery run, I have to be sure I’m loaded and ready for any possible blow out diaper, throw up incident, or meltdown at any moment. I thought it would be fun to give you a glimpse into my perfectly prepared diaper bag! Don’t...

Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.       A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to attend a Mom Matters event with Charlotte Parent, How to Be a Media-Savvy Mom. Going into it, I had no clue what to expect, but I knew I could stand to learn a few pointers. Even though my kids aren’t in that pre-teen stage...

Having our this bundle a few months ago and getting back into a breastfeeding routine has been both amazing, yet stressful at the same time. With both other kids, I had major milk supply issues. I couldn’t even nurse Landyn past three months and I had to really work hard trying everything in the books to increase my supply when we learned Lavery suffered from a dairy and soy allergy. Thankfully, I was able to surpass my struggle and nurse Lavery past her first year. With Lakelyn this time around, my milk supply has been amazing from...

  These final weeks prepping to bring home a new baby are exhausting, stressful, and busy; yet exciting all at the same time! I still can’t believe I’m getting ready to welcome a second daughter into the world, and all things pink and frilly are not any less fun to stock up on than they were the first time around! I’m so excited to be packing up cute little dresses, headbands, and bows in her diaper bag and even more exciting to accessorize in style with a few of my favorites from Itzy Ritzy!   I am in LOVE...

Now that we’re in the final stretch of this pregnancy and I’m really getting ready to introduce our sweet baby girl to the world, I’m starting to have those feelings of guilt I had when I was pregnant with Lavery. I remember the last few nights before she was born staying up crying, because I felt so horrible for our only child, my sweet little man to have some of the attention taken away from him. Everyone told me it was normal to feel and it would go away and they would grow up to be great friends, and while all that...
