Since becoming a mom, I have strived to feed my son the healthiest foods. This does not mean that I always feed him organic, or that I have a zero sugar diet for him. It means that I try to avoid [as much as I can] “bad” food or drinks at his early age in order to instill a healthy diet down the road. Being a working mom, however, means I don’t always have the say about what my little one intakes. A few months back I began to notice that my son wouldn’t take plain water in his sippy cups anymore. I later found out that grandma had been giving him watered down lemonade. Of course my little one did not want plain water anymore as he had already tasted sweet lemonade. And I’m not going to argue with him, grandma’s lemonade is amazing, but possibly not the healthiest.
The only way my son would take plain water was if it was straight from a water bottle. Unfortunately, this meant spilled water all over his clothes and the house. Luckily, I came across Sippy Nipple, the “World’s First Leakproof Water Bottle Baby Nipple.” These nipples turn [almost] any water bottle into a baby bottle. The nipples come in three different sizes: 3+ Month, 6+ Month, and Toddler. Curious? Keep reading and be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win your very own Sippy Nipple.
The first weekend of April my boys and I ventured off to meet up with some friends at Smorgasburg LA. I should disclose that even though our house is about 17 miles from Downtown Los Angeles we hardly make it out there. During the week my husband and I spend countless hours in the traffic and crowds of the city, so on the weekends we like to stay away from all of that. With that being said, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to spend time with close friends and enjoy delicious food.
Last December as we were heading out of town for a holiday celebration with some friends, my little one got car sick. We found ourselves in middle of a crowded freeway, no exit in sight, and throw up all over my son, his car seat, and I think even Sheriff Woody got some of it. By the time we were able to get out of the car it was a lost cause. Truth be told, I wanted to get rid of the car seat and the car and start fresh haha.
Luckily, my husband didn’t let me throw either one away. I did, however, learn a lot about safely cleaning a car seat. Today I share with you a guest post by Harry Carr. He’s been in the cleaning business for several years and is a parent himself. Harry shares with us some tips and tricks to cleaning those car seats and keeping them smelling fresh and clean. If you have any tips or tricks, let me know in the comments below.
I had that motherly instinct since the very beginning. I knew even before I took a pregnancy test that I was expecting. Something inside of me felt different. And you know what else felt different? My breasts. I was definitely surprised that at the outset of my pregnancy my breasts were already changing. At about four weeks of pregnancy, they felt tender, swollen, and full.
Even after my son was born those feelings did not go away. In fact, new “complications” arose such as engorgement. Sadly, during my breastfeeding journey of over fourteen months I was never able to find a bra that both made it easy for me to nurse my son and was comfortable. Most of the bras I tried were bulky and made me feel claustrophobic. Others lack any type of support and left my breasts feeling even more tender. The truth of the matter is that as a mom, you have a lot on your plate. I know I did. The last thing you want to have to worry about is trying your luck with nursing bras. Today I’m giving you a quick review on the nursing bras from Hotmilk Lingerie.
