So this year, I’m going through all our baby clothes and donating ones that are worn, out-dated, or ones […]

New Moms: Do You Need a Baby Monitor?

New Moms: Do You Need a Baby Monitor?

This is one of those trick questions, because the answer will be different for every family. I vaguely remember getting a very basic, cheap audio baby monitor. It worked for letting me know when our daughter awoke right away, rather than waiting until I could hear her crying and screaming. But, because it was cheap, […]

Babywearing: Bonding with Baby (through the Toddler Years) #freedomtogether

Babywearing: Bonding with Baby (through the Toddler Years) #freedomtogether

With my first child, I was young and uneducated. I didn’t know anything about breastfeeding, attachment parenting, baby wearing, and was so very eager to get her doing things on her own, like sleeping in the crib. Things happen way too quickly. Moms, don’t rush it! You really have to take the time to swallow […]

When Changing Diapers is a Workout Itself #FirstFit

When Changing Diapers is a Workout Itself #FirstFit

No one despises changing diapers more than myself. And it doesn’t help that changing my one year old is like trying to wrangle a fish into a beer bottle – it’s not happening. I’ve been so tempted to just let her run around naked, if it weren’t for the fact I’d have to then clean […]
