This post has been compensated by Piggy Paint for an honest review. Read our policies page for more information. “Oh, Mommy! Your fingers are beautiful! They’re so PINK!” From the moment I heard my daughter say those words to me as she adoringly admired my fresh manicure (a rarity and a luxury for me), I knew I was in big trouble. Sure enough, the next words out of her mouth begged me to make her nails pink too. Sigh. I had wanted to avoid putting fingernail polish on my little girl’s nails for as long as possible. Being a pretty naturally-minded individual (read: a hippie),…

This post has been compensated by Intimina for an honest review. Read our policies page for more information. We’ve all heard about Kegel exercises. We try to do them when we remember (which for most of us is hardly ever), and we’re always wondering if we are doing them correctly. I will be honest, even though I am constantly telling my clients that they need to be working on their Kegels before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and after baby, I am not practicing what I preach. The problem is that I always feel awkward when I am doing them. I ask myself, “Am I squeezing long…


Baby Steps with Carter’s!

Finding the perfect pair of shoes for baby can be a bit challenging. I would know; I’m on baby number three. Finding a cute pair of baby shoes (or 10) — especially for baby girl — really isn’t the problem. Let’s be real, those suckers are a dime a dozen. But finding a supportive pair of baby shoes that will actually stay on her feet is a bit trickier. That is, until we tried the Carter’s Every Step brand. We LOVE our Carter’s shoes. Here’s why… Carter’s Every Step Shoes are available in three convenient stages: Crawl (1), Stand (2), and…

It’s basically…

You’ve successfully survived the first 24-hours of baby’s life. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean you’re out of the woods just yet. Welcome to “Baby’s Second Night.” And yes, that’s a real thing.

Cold and flu season is just around the corner. It’s easy to forget that Germs. Are. Everywhere. As parents, it is our sworn duty to protect our precious snowflakes from anything that could cause them unnecessary harm. This includes all the bad germs. Most of us realize that allowing our children to eat candy off of the floor of a public bathroom is a really bad idea. But did you know that some viruses, such…

Many parents can tell you that colic is the absolute worst. Having a baby that’s teething, gassy, constipated or just plain unhappy is not fun — especially when you think you’ve tried everything to help soothe them and nothing works. A big part of the problem is that it can be difficult to determine what it is that your baby needs to help make him or her happy. We all know that there isn’t a magical remedy that guarantees to stop…

I received this product as a trial in exchange for an honest review. Read our policies page for more information. You know, I don’t love to exercise. It’s really the motivation that’s lacking in my life. Objectively, I am aware of the benefits. And when I actually do it I can see them, but it’s just not enough to get me to crave working out the way that some people seem to. But, you know what would motivate me to work out? If I knew that the results would help with my lower back pain, lift and hold my core, and (most importantly) improve my…


Beyond the Breast: 5 Other Uses for Your Boppy Nursing Pillow

boppy nursing pillow, other uses for your boppy

Everyone knows that the Boppy Nursing Pillow is basically THE golden standard when it comes to baby feeding essentials. You’ve even seen Nina use it in that past when demonstrating how to get the best latch when breastfeeding baby. It’s a must-have item for all new families! Whether we’re talking breast or bottle, it really makes no difference. If you’re feeding a newborn, you’re going to want a Boppy. I personally love mine so much that I have TWO — one for upstairs, and one for downstairs. You may think that this is pure laziness — needing two Boppys — but when you’re…


Babies are Stinky

babies are stinky, how to remove the bad smell around babies

Babies are ADORABLE. They can also be quite STINKY. Just #speakingthetruthhere. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE babies. (I better! I’m about to give birth to baby number three. Literally, I could go into labor at any moment.) However, there are some aspects of parenting that are slightly unpleasant, and stinky babies just happen to be one of them. It doesn’t have to be that way though! I’ve gathered a list of some things that can really stink and some tips on how to make your home (and baby) smell fresh and clean! 1. Baby diapers are stinky. Diaper pails and cloth…
