    How To Treat Baby Eczema – Help Your Baby’s Skin

    As a first time mom, I panicked over everything. I’m not kidding when I say that I had her pediatrician’s number on speed dial. When I noticed Hayvn beginning to develop a rough and patchy rash that was spreading all over her skin, this was no exception. I called the pediatrician and they told me to monitor her temperature and to watch it closely and recommended I schedule an appointment to bring her in. Upon scheduling the appointment, I watched as her poor skin flared up and thought maybe her diapers were bothering her, seeing as the most severe spot, where the rash had started was her legs and her…

    Is It Teething Time? – Signs That A Baby Is Teething

    Teething is the dreaded period of parenting known for making parents, and babies I’m sure, want to pull their hair out. Though it’s not always a challenging process, for most families it is. It’s easy to imagine, it’s probably very unpleasant to cut a sharp tooth through sore and swollen gums, so it’s understandable that most of our babies experience pain and discomfort when it comes to teething. For this reason, it’s easy to see why they may act out and throw tantrums and fits that can be difficult for parents to deal with. However, like I said, for some babies, they break teeth like its nothing, and all of…

    Baby Shower Game Ideas – Fun Ideas For A Co-ed Baby Shower

    Traditionally, baby showers were originally intended for women to gather and celebrate the pregnancy of another woman and welcome her into motherhood. Today, the more popular idea is to have co-ed baby showers that allow both mom and dad to celebrate with all their friends and spouses. Cue the groans and eye rolls from all the husbands at this point. This is typically the reaction you would expect from a man as his wife drags him to her friend’s baby shower. Am I right? Now I know, a baby shower isn’t top pick over watching a sports game, but don’t worry husbands, because I have provided the ultimate list of…

    Kelty Journey PerfectFit Child Carrier – Review

    Alright, this post is for my outdoorsy mommas, or the mommas who simply want to carry their child on their back comfortably. We all know how straining it can be to carry our babies on our hips. Let’s be honest it’s a workout all on its own, so when it comes to hiking or even navigating through a big crowd at the summer fair, carrying your child on your back, hands free is obviously a much better option. But that leads us to another question, which carrier is going to be the most comfortable for me and my baby? And which carrier will lend the most support to my back…

    Stay Home Date Night Ideas – For After The Kids Go To Bed

    We hear it all the time and you see it everywhere: “Never stop dating your spouse.” There is so much truth and power to this statement, because it’s so easy to get caught up in the mundane routine of life, that we forget to take a breather and reconnect with our spouse. We are so busy living life and raising our families, that we lose touch with the butterflies and sparks we craved while in the dating phase. It’s so crucial to date your partner for so many reasons. It keeps intimacy in the relationship and helps you check in with the other person, not to mention it can be…

    Teether Easers – The Best Toys For Teething

      Momma’s, I’m about to get into one of the hardest aspects of being a parent, teething. Unfortunately, most parents can agree with me when I say the most I’ve ever struggled with being a momma (besides the month I went without sleep) is when Hayvn is teething. So if you’re a first-time mom, don’t let this scare you, but take heed and prepare yourself now, for when that time comes. When Hayvn first started teething, it took me by surprise. My once happy, quiet, and smiley little girl had all of a sudden turned into a stage 5 clinger, full of inconsolable crying/screaming spells and was just an overall…

    Will I Ever Sleep Again? Tips For Getting A Baby To Sleep Through The Night

      Do your new baby’s sleep habits have you feeling like you need an I.V. with coffee through a drip line? Mommas, this is what I like to call the zombie flu. It’s a flu that almost every new parent catches when they first bring their newborn home. Personally, I caught this flu and it hit me hard, and to be honest, it lasted way too long. In the wee hours of the night, I would find myself desperately searching for answers on getting a baby to sleep through the night. In my search, I found that for most babies, it is typical to start sleeping longer stretches once they…
