It is a well-known fact that a child starts learning from the day it is born. 🧠 In fact, from the time they're born until age 5, a child learns at a speed that is unmatched for the rest of his life! What you, as a parent, do during that critical developmental time period to help your child learn will set him up for even more success later in life. And one of the most beneficial ways you can help your child learn is to read aloud to him or her every day. ⁠{Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading and see the list!⁠}⁠

Remember when you heard your baby’s first cry wh Remember when you heard your baby’s first cry when they were born? ❤️ It was the best sound you had ever heard. Overjoyed that your baby is finally here.⁠
But as the days progressed, so did the cries. And you had to learn what each cry meant. Were they hungry? Tired? In pain? Bored? Needed a new diaper? Too hot? Too cold? It was overwhelming as you went through the checklist to make sure your baby was okay and cared for. But with each day and each cry you got smarter. You learned what each whimper and cry meant. And your baby learned that he/she could always trust you.⁠
Whether you're dealing with newborn cries, toddler cries, or preteen cries, you're doing great, mama. Take three deep breaths. You can do this. And if you feel like you're about to break and need a second, leave them somewhere safe, step away for a couple of minutes, and gather yourself. Then try again. You are a great mother and in time you will know how to soothe their every cry. 💕

As the family member in our household who cleans the inside of our home, I'm the one who decides what cleaning products we use. And as a mom, I'm hyper-aware of what I'm surrounding myself with as I scrub the floors and toilets and what my toddler is also being exposed to with every spray and wipe. Thankfully, it's wider known now that many cleaning products contain harmful ingredients and release dangerous toxic chemicals. 😳 Even products that are labeled as "green" or "natural" may contain ingredients that can cause future health problems. So how do you know who you can trust? Other than reading every label and googling what each ingredient means? Find a company that believes in full transparency, who uses only plant-based ingredients, and who's products work. I've done this for our family and we're now using @Puracy, a company that creates natural and organic, non-toxic, plant-based, hypoallergenic, and effective home essentials that are safe for the entire family. Here's what I learned while testing Puracy and why we are using them in our home and with our family. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to read my review!⁠}⁠ #ad #puracy⁠

Keeping Track of Baby Milestones: 0-3 Months Old⁠ 👶⁠
.⁠
Typically, the first three months of your child’s development will be marked by key developments including control and lifting of their head, a first smile and even a laugh, and making eye contact. 👀 It’s an exciting time when bonding is important and your baby is changing rapidly before your eyes. 😍 Pediatricians will go through developmental milestone checklists with patients, asking parents about their child’s sensory, communication, and movement changes, keeping an eye out for any red flags. 🚩 Generally, it’s not concerning if a baby isn’t hitting one or two milestones on time. Be sure to adjust for prematurity or stress factors. If your newborn is missing multiple abilities or you feel concerned, check in with your child’s pediatrician. 👩‍⚕️ Here are the different milestones to look out for each month from 0-3 months. {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

So you’re about to have a baby girl and you’re looking for a cool name for her, right? You want a name that captures the essence of who she is and the girl and woman that you envision her becoming. A name that sets her apart and celebrates her unique gifts. A name you can imagine being written on her cubby at preschool, her college entrance essay, her first novel.⁠
⁠
You want your precious daughter to have a name that will convey all the qualities and values that you hope she will embody: you need a name fit for a queen, an astronaut, a good friend, a doctor, a professional athlete, a spiritual leader, a wonderful mother, a nurse, an activist, a scholar, a student, a leader, a follower, a good person—any of the things you imagine she can and will become in her lifetime.⁠
⁠
Finding a cool baby girl name may seem like a daunting task. There are so many options! Research shows that names for baby girls are currently trending towards representations of nature, gemstones, and food. Also growing in popularity for girls’ names are names that are not common girls names at all—such as names that have been traditionally used for boys, or last names. {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

Every woman is different when she begins showing in pregnancy. I remember clearly the day I finally saw my beloved baby bump. It was a Monday and I was at work. I saw myself in the bathroom mirror and smiled broadly at my suddenly noticeable bump. Glowing, I rubbed my little tummy as I checked out my new, different-looking profile in the mirror. My office friends had noticed that morning as well and had complimented me and my little bump. Naturally, I took a selfie. I was so excited to see that I was finally showing.

You Can't Spoil a Baby, Here's Why 👶💕⁠
.⁠
The battle of opinions regarding whether or not you can spoil a baby has been raging for decades, especially among grandparents and those born during the time of little affection. Our children's great-grandparents were most likely raised with the idea that love and affection and responding to a baby's cries will spoil them and make them even fussier. While that idea might seem ludicrous to us, there's a reason such an approach was widely believed. Here's what parenting has looked like over the decades and how present-day science says you cannot spoil a baby. ❤️ {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠

You may think that you are helping them by doing e You may think that you are helping them by doing everything for them. But there comes a time when they need to learn how to do things for themselves. ⁠
"Give a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime." The same rule applies.⁠
We want our kids to be strong, independent, self-reliant, and successful. They learn quickly what they can get away with. Teaching them kindness and a good work ethic from the beginning goes a long way. ❤️⁠ Put the hard work in now and watch them bloom into a strong and independent adult later. 💪

No need to explain or cover yourself for anybody if you don't want to. 💕⁠

5 Things I Wish I Had Known About Potty Training⁠ 🚽⁠
.⁠
Let’s talk about potty training! It’s one of those monumental milestones we mamas walk through with our toddlers that make them suddenly seem like they went from babies to tiny little humans overnight. And, while it can be an exciting time (and a time to save some serious cash by ditching diapers), it can also come with lots of stress. 🙃 From cleaning up potty accidents for what may seem like days (or even weeks) to wondering if you’ll ever be able to drive further than down the block without having to stop for a potty break 🤦‍♀️, potty training can be daunting.⁠
⁠
But, what many moms agree on is that once it’s done, you kinda forget about all the stress that came along with it. Kinda like pregnancy and giving birth —you just sort of forget about it all until you do it all over again.⁠ 🤪⁠

Here are five things I wish I had known about potty training before I jumped into it with my then two-and-a-half-year-old daughter. Because, if I had known these things, I think I would have been a bit more laid back about the whole thing! {Click 🔗 in bio to continue reading!⁠}⁠
