Why Moms Love Sam’s Club and Why You Should Join Today

Let’s list some ubiquitous things moms love: stretchy pants, coffee, sleeping babies, online shopping. Hard to argue with these, right? And what do they all have in common? They either save moms time or they make mom’s life easier, and we’re alllllll about that.

I have endless childhood memories of going to Sam’s Club to stock up on cases of fruit snacks and gatorade. And when we had the opportunity to partner with Sam’s Club, I thought to myself “oh my gosh yessss buying in bulk!” But I’ve learned, there is so. much. more. Sam’s Club has expanded and modernized since I was a kid. They have listened to the moms of the world, and the services, products, and customer service they provide is beyond compare. At Sam’s Club, you’ll be left with a bit more pocket change, your time, and (most importantly) your sanity–leaving you with more energy to snuggle those little sleepy babies.

Now its time for your 6-week postpartum check up. 🏥  So much of life after delivery is focused on your new bundle of joy that you can sometimes forget to care for yourself. This is exactly why I believe the postpartum appointment is so important to you as a new momma – because it’s all about you! 💗⁠

An amazing story from a determined mom to breastfe An amazing story from a determined mom to breastfeed her #triplets. 💗 With hard work, determination, help and support, anything is possible.
Words & 📷: @triplets_and_toddler
.
“I breastfed my first child so I knew I wanted to #breastfeed again. People were skeptical about me #breastfeeding triplets, and this drove my determination! 💪 My boys were born at 29+3 and therefore it was so important for them to have #breastmilk! 🤱
.
After having an emergency C-section, I knew there was no time to rest, so I started hand expressing within the first hour. I set an alarm to ensure that I expressed every 2 hours during the day and every 3 hours overnight. ⏰
.
Being separated from my boys was hard so having pictures/video links helped whilst I expressed. Seeing my teeny, vulnerable babies in their little incubators drove my determination to provide them with my milk! I also rotated muslin squares between us so that I could smell them and vice versa. This also helped me whilst I expressed during the night away from my boys. Their smell on the swaddles kept me focused! 💙
.
Twice during our #NICU journey my boys were split between hospitals over an hour apart! This was the hardest time and meant I was separated from 2 of my boys for a couple of days. During this time I kept up with expressing and ensured that all three of them had enough milk to take with them until we were all reunited.
.
Looking back I feel it is my sheer determination that has really enabled me to successfully breastfeed my triplet boys! Not once have they needed donor or formula milk. It required a massive commitment both physically and emotionally but I am so proud of my achievement! My boys are now 11 months and are still breastfeeding." ❤️
.
*This story is not to bring any mothers down that choose to formula feed. (I, personally, had to give my son formula at 7 months old!) We share this mother's story to inspire mothers and celebrate our victories! ✨
If you are having breastfeeding struggles and want to succeed, contact a good local IBCLC and receive support. Find new mom friends who are also breastfeeding who can encourage you. And if you choose to formula feed, we honor you too. 💕 #mommychick

🧠 4 Ways to Promote Your Child's Mental Health 🧠 4 Ways to Promote Your Child's Mental Health 🧠⁠
.⁠
Your child’s mental health is fairly complicated. It's also critical to their overall health and wellness. We often think of mental health as it pertains to adults, but just like growth and physical development, research shows that mental health is something that should be considered starting at birth. ❤️⁠
.⁠
When children are very young, their brains are extremely sensitive to environmental stress. Toxic stress, defined as high levels of prolonged stress, can have life-long effects on children. Limiting stress for young children is critical for their early mental health. One of the most fundamental ways we can help eliminate toxic stress is by building a strong relationship foundation from the very beginning of their lives. Your relationship with your baby is an integral part of their sense of self-esteem, independence, and confidence; three key factors in mental health.⁠
.⁠
Building that relationship with your child can be broken down into four key concepts . . . {Click 🔗 in bio to find out what they are!}⁠

💤 Good Bedtime Routines for Babies of Every Age 💤 Good Bedtime Routines for Babies of Every Age 💤⁠
.⁠
If you’ve ever typed into Google, “Why won’t my baby sleep?” you’re not alone. In fact, you’re among thousands of other parents/caregivers who are likely as tired as you are. Chances are, if you have gone down the Google rabbit hole at 2:00 a.m. (or just asked your pediatrician for sleep advice), then you’ve most likely been introduced to the concept of a bedtime routine.⁠
.⁠
A bedtime routine can be an incredibly helpful tool in establishing healthy sleep habits and good sleep hygiene. Infants and young children thrive on routine; in fact, they are comforted by predictability (spoiler alert: most adults are this way, too!). Plus, a young mind is exposed to so much new information every day that it’s reassuring for a child to know that they can depend on certain events to have a predictable structure.⁠
.⁠
Bedtime routines are also a cue to their brains and bodies that sleep is coming. With a predictable bedtime routine, your little one will start to recognize the order of the routine and begin to anticipate what comes next. With enough repetition, this process happens automatically in a very Pavlovian way. A calm and successive routine will also make the onset of sleep come more easily. Can you imagine if you walked out of your workout and immediately someone told you that you had to lay down and fall asleep? This would be nearly impossible, and the same is true for our little ones. By allowing them some time to unwind, you are making the falling asleep process that much easier. Here are some tips on what to do for your little one's bedtime. ❤️⁠ {Click 🔗 in bio to read more!}⁠

.⁠
Parenting is hard. And ever so important. But sometimes it feels like we need to have a special degree in “Managing Toddler Mood Swings” to navigate some of the unexpected scenarios that come with raising secure and happy children.⁠
.⁠
Like how do we handle a child that likes to scream instead of talk?⁠
“Please, child, just lower your voice while we’re in Target.”⁠
Or what are we supposed to do when a child prefers to strip down every time we get them dressed or only eat foods that are the color blue?! (In case you’re wondering, there aren’t many blue foods.)⁠
.⁠
It can feel tricky and tiring to try and do it all right and then sometimes still feel like you’re at a loss. But the truth is, there’s never any way to make everything perfect. But there are things we can do that set our children up to feel secure and happy. And here are seven of my favorite tips. {Click 🔗 in bio to read more!}⁠

Cesarean mamas--this one's for you. I hope you know that you are worthy. That you are such a warrior. That you are brave and powerful and strong as f✨ck. I hope you know that birthing your baby on an operating table makes you no less of a mother. No less of a goddess. Your birth story is holy and that beautiful scar on your belly is sacred as sh✨t. You are worthy of praise and celebration, honor and  admiration.⁠
.⁠
I hope that you know it was worth it. Knowing this does NOT mean you can't mourn your dream. It does NOT mean "you and your baby are safe--that's all that matters!" It does NOT mean you can't wish things had gone differently. But I hope that underneath it all, you can find beauty in what was. What is. Your baby. Your birth. Your strength. Your healing. Your story.⁠
.⁠
Your journey wasn't easy. Perhaps it unfolded much differently than you had hoped--perhaps it shook you to your core and left you feeling the immense weight of a "what if" and why".⁠
.⁠
Perhaps you're still wading through the heavy emotions of disappointment, anger, and grief. Perhaps you always will. But whatever feelings you hold in your heart and in your womb, I hope that you can look at your scar and say "Hell yes, it was worth it. And hell ya, I am worthy."⁠

*This post was written for mamas who might be struggling with an unexpected or undesired cesarean birth. I recognize that there are mamas that choose to have planned/elective cesarean births who might not resonate with the message in this post.

When you announcement to the kids that you're expe When you announcement to the kids that you're expecting another little one and one of your children asks where babies come from. 😳 This is when you starting thinking about when and how you need to start talking about the "birds and the bees" with your kids.⁠
.⁠
Talking about sex with anyone can be weird. But having the sex talk with your kid . . . well, that's a whole new level of weird. Some parents try to avoid having "the talk" for as long as humanly possible. While other parents jump right in at the first hint of their child's curiosity. Some parents find the topic relatively easy to discuss, while others are humiliated just thinking about it. 🙈 No matter where you fall on this wide spectrum, one fact remains: someone has to teach your child about sex. And it should probably be you.⁠
.⁠
So where do you start? How do you talk about it? And when? Of course, there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. Each parent will broach this subject in they way they feel is best. But if you're like me and need a bit of guidance, here are some tips for teaching your kids about the birds and the bees. {Click 🔗 in bio to read more!}⁠

Mindful Eating Tips After Baby - Podcast Episode 2 Mindful Eating Tips After Baby - Podcast Episode 23⁠
.⁠
The holidays can be a hectic and stressful time for many (especially moms). And on top of that, this time of year can be loaded with diet talk. 🤦‍♀️ You're not alone if all this talk about weight loss/gain, New Year's diet plans & the justification/shaming of eating XYZ is getting to you! It is to me too. Another time in life when women feel like they should shred some weight . . . after they have a baby. 🤰 While I'm not about women feeling they should change their postpartum bodies--our bodies have done so much for us and our babies and we are beautiful exactly the way we are--I am supportive of women wanting to nurture and take care of their bodies and living more mindfully. ❤️⁠
.⁠
I had the chance to chat with @drsusanalbers on our podcast about mindful eating, what it is, and how (and why) new mothers might want to incorporate this practice into their lives. Let's combat the diet culture this time of year and focus more on living and eating mindfully. {Click 🔗 in bio to listen to the episode!}⁠

Motherhood and The Enneagram: Parenting Tips by Ty Motherhood and The Enneagram: Parenting Tips by Type⁠
.⁠
Knowing your Enneagram type is a lot of fun and can really bring some insight into how you act and react to other types and situations. The Enneagram differs from other personality typing systems because it encourages growth and identifies healthy and unhealthy behaviors within each of the nine types. Learning about yourself in this way is also a really great way to grow (or perhaps change for the better) as a parent. And we all could use good growth and change, right?⁠

If you know your Enneagram type, we're sharing the parenting advice you probably need to hear. ❤️ {Click on 🔗 to continue reading!}⁠
