Every new mom knows they need a diaper bag, but what exactly should you put in it?

Babywearing – Stretchy Baby Wrap Review: Moby, Boba, and Baby Beluga

2020-02-17T23:49:18-08:00May 30th, 2018|Babies, Family|8 Comments

Babywearing is a great way to bond with your baby and a stretchy baby wrap offers the cuddly closeness that other baby carriers don’t. I personally love stretchy baby wraps, and they were lifesavers in the earlier days while dealing with a colicky baby and trying to get him to sleep. You can do skin to skin, breastfeed, hike, or have your hands free while doing things around the house all while having your baby [...]

As I mentioned in my previous post about dealing with colic during the first 3 months of motherhood, I want to share about my overall experience with new motherhood during those early months, but had so much to say that I wasn't quite sure how to organize it all. The reason I share about these things is to let other soon to be moms get a sneak peek of what may be in [...]

The First 3 Months of Motherhood – The Battle For Sleep

2020-02-17T23:49:43-08:00May 9th, 2018|Babies, Family|4 Comments

As with most parents sleep was a big struggle for us, and something I became quite controlling about. In the really early days, it could take hours to get him to go down to sleep at night only for him to wake up 2-3 hours later and be inconsolable with bad gas which would take a few more hours to settle him down again. It became exhausting and I felt so defeated [...]

The First 3 Months of Motherhood – Breastfeeding is Hard

2020-02-17T23:50:05-08:00May 8th, 2018|Babies, Breatfeeding, Family|4 Comments

The secret thing that no one tells you about until you're very late in your pregnancy or starting to struggle with it yourself, is that breastfeeding is really hard. It's extremely rare that a newborn baby will squirm up to your boob, pop themselves on, and began to drink back that delicious milk with little to no effort. In reality, newborn babies are barely aware, have super tiny mouths and need to be [...]

This Friday marks Logan's 3 month birthday, and wow does time fly fast! These past 3 months have been filled with love, joy, exhaustion, amazement, anxiety, pride, self-doubt, curiosity, overwhelm, closeness, alienation, accomplishment, failure, and a million other feelings at both ends of the spectrum.
