Get Ready for Back To School with these Tips

Get Ready for Back To School with these Tips

With summer starting to wind down, back to school is on people’s minds. For me, back to school means my commute time gets a ton worse. But it is also important to remember that the back to school commute comes with added traffic hazards, and we need to remember these back to school driving safety tips. My toddler’s daycare schedule doesn’t really change, though he is approaching preschool (once we get that heinie of his potty trained). But I’m sure kindergarten will be here before we know it, and many of my readers are doing the back to school shuffle […]

Why breastfeeding moms need a lactation consultant

Why breastfeeding moms need a lactation consultant

Breastfeeding did not come easy for me with my son. It was a constant struggle and gave me an immense amount of guilt before I accepted my low supply and decided to continue doing my best despite the problems. I could not get my baby to latch – he simply would refuse to even try. He was more than happy to take a bottle, but the moment I brought him to my chest, the screaming would commence. If it wasn’t for the help I received from a lactation consultant, I’m sure I would have given up. What is a lactation […]

Tips to take your Toddler to his First Movie Theater

Tips to take your Toddler to his First Movie Theater

Toddlers can’t sit still; I think wiggling is pretty much part of their whole existence. But how do you make a toddler sit still and enjoy a movie in a movie theater? The struggle is completely different than say going to a drive-in movie and sitting in the privacy of your car. Here you actually have to keep the child from disturbing other moviegoers and keep him from running off. My husband likes to text me ideas during the day while we’re at work. You know the texts, the ones that don’t have enough details and are not at a time […]

Help Your Baby or Toddler Learn to Sleep with Tips from The Baby Sleep Site

Help Your Baby or Toddler Learn to Sleep with Tips from The Baby Sleep Site

Thanks to The Baby Sleep Site for sponsoring this conversation and providing helpful tips!   When you have a brand new baby, you expect sleep to become non-existent. Newborns are not born knowing how to sleep; they eat often and sleep for short periods. But as your baby gets older, you start being able to get longer stretches between wakings. Older babies can learn to fall asleep on their own, but they do go through periods of sleep regression and may continue to have sleep problems. I have been a subscriber to The Baby Sleep Site since becoming a Mom and […]
