This post is sponsored by Philips Avent in support of the Philips Avent Anti-colic BPA-free Bottle. All thoughts and opinions are my own. As an exclusive formula-feeding mama, I was excited that Philips AVENT released its Anti-colic bottles in time for my baby to test it out. My second son has been very colicky in his […]
Getting used to having a new baby in the house takes time. Take some baby steps and build your confidence.
This post was sponsored by Playtex Baby. All opinions, experiences, and photos are my own. When the Playtex brand asked for real moms to review the new Diaper Genie Expressions diaper pail, Whitney and Heather knew that with two little dudes in diapers, I would not only be excited to try a new Diaper Genie […]

My friend Samantha (mom of twins) said to me, “The valuable mom is the one who is six to eight months ahead of you in parenthood; any bigger gap than that and they’ve forgotten what you’re going through.” As a new mom of a little wobbly baby, I woulda thought 2 to 3 weeks max. […]
Why these challenges? Outings with a baby? Our own experience with unstructured time and a small baby tells us that having an activity planned or a project for the day is tremendously helpful in passing the time.
