Burping Baby

December 14, 2020

No, this isn’t me making fun of my kid when she belches, though it’s incredibly endearing in a gross-out sort of way. How cute is it when this little angelic face lets out a huge “uuurrrp” and then keeps on smiling like nothing happened. I just love it. I know I’ll have to correct her [...]

Caravan Crib by Kalon Studios

December 7, 2020

Kalon Studios just unveiled their Caravan crib and it is luscious! I wish this were around 3 years ago when I needed a crib. But, let’s face it, a designer crib isn’t bought for the baby, it’s bought for the parents. A baby can sleep just about anywhere when she actually decides to sleep - [...]

Keeping the Hotness Factor While Pregnant

November 5, 2020

If you’re currently pregnant, do you have the pregnancy “glow”? If you’ve been pregnant previously, did you have it? I had a glow, but it wasn’t due to pregnancy. It was due to overexertion from shoving too many desserts in my mouth for 8 months straight! I jest, but just a little. I definitely struggled [...]

Do Moms’ Brains Grow?

October 28, 2020

I have two kids. One is seven, and one is five. One of my running jokes since becoming a mom is that I lose brain cells every single day now. And it’s not due to drinking too much, like it was in college. If you’re a mom, you know what I mean. You forget where [...]

Beetles, Similac and What To Do With Your Boobs

October 7, 2020

You may have heard that there has been a recall on Similac powdered infant formula. According to Abbot Industries, makers of Similac, there is a “remote” possibility that a small common beetle got into the production at one facility. It’s icky, actually, to think that us formula feeders (yes, I’m one) may inadvertently serve beetle [...]

DRIA: Cool New Take On Nursing Cover

September 10, 2020

One thing “they” don’t tell you is that nursing necessitates an entire new approach to clothes. Yes, you can wear your old pre-pregnancy clothes when you can fit into them, only you’ll need to be prepared to disrobe come meal time. Or if not disrobe, then strategically uncover. I was just told about this DRIA [...]

Babies: A Documentary About Babies

August 4, 2021

Have you seen the documentary “Babies“? Me either. It’s a documentary about babies in four different cultures: Japan, Namibia, Mongolia and the US. Supposedly it’s telling how similarly the babies are from each culture. But, I hear that the only culture where the moms seem happy toiling over their children is in Namibia. The Namibian [...]
