r e f l u x is for the birds

We’ve gotten a couple emails recently asking about reflux & updates on how Nora is doing with hers. It’s been a rough road for us, and unfortunately it’s one that has not come to an end yet. There have been a lot of ups & downs with reflux and seeing your baby in pain & not being able to do anything about it is just the worst feeling as a mother.

bears turns t w o ||

Let me just start by asking the typical ‘mom question’- HOW is my baby bears now two? Officially a toddler, and boy, does he act like it. We always call him our sour patch kid because he can be so sweet, and turn so sour in an instant.

I hope you all know my intentions are not to write this as a “how to”, but how we are trying to manage life with two kids under two. What’s working for us, and what isn’t.

my favorites// baby wraps

Since having Nora, I have been utilizing my baby wraps & carriers MUCH more than I did with Cam. Likely because I am having to chase around a toddler, keep the house clean and laundry (semi) caught up- so I need free hands as much as possible. In documenting all my time spent in baby wraps, I have received so many questions about which ones are my favorite, where to get them, etc so I decided to do a post for you all! Read More
