The last time I did a post about nursing and troubleshooting your breast pump (see here), I got a lot of great feedback and even MORE questions. I decided I would compose some of the most frequently asked mama questions following my last post. These questions have everything to do with mommin’, nursing, biting, tantrums, etc. And I promise, I will keep them coming, as long as you all keep those questions coming!
As you all know, I got my hair cut. This may not seem like a big deal, but it was HUGE for me. I have had long hair for as long as I can remember (I’m serious, like kindergarten). After having Cam my hair was falling out, dead, annoying, and being yanked constantly. I was over it. I never thought I would be brave enough, but I went in and told my hairdresser “just cut it off, I’m done”. So she did! Now, styling it has been so much fun!
Mark and I knew we were having a boy from the time I was about 15 weeks pregnant. However, we didn’t want to tell anyone until this shower, so it was super important to me to have a neutral baby shower. I cannot begin to explain how perfect my baby shower was. It was simple, neutral, and just plain perfect. My sisters-in-law totally nailed it. Read More
Ok, so we all know that there are gifts people register for when they have their first baby that make you scratch your head>> is this really necessary? I’ve had my own baby shower, but I’ve also been an attendee at plenty of them as well. I have gathered a list of things that make me say “ohmygosh, yes! I need these!” and a list that makes me think “um, really? “. Of course, we’re not listing off diapers + wipes + carseats (the essentials); these are items a lot of people don’t think of right off the bat. I think this would be great to look at before registering for your own baby shower, or buying a gift for another mama-to-be.Read More
Oh, what a whirlwind nursing can be. As a previous mother/baby nurse, and now a full-time mama, I have gained a lot of experience with breastfeeding, pumping, etc. I am, by no means, an expert; but I thought I would answer some of the most commonly asked questions about this topic.Read More
We absolutely love our Henry+Bros blanket! This thing has been such a lifesaver. Everywhere we go, we absolutely have to bring it “just in case”- and always end up using it! There are so many reasons that we can’t live without this HUGE blanket…Read More
So, the question I feel like I am constantly asked is: “how do you always keep your tennis shoes so clean?”. I love love love wearing tennis shoes. I think they’re cute + comfortable, plus I figured out how to style them with distressed denim and not look like a dweeb! Read More
There is just something about a baby in pajamas. I think it’s the cutest thing ever when Cam is freshly bathed in his favorite cozy pjs>>he absolutely LOVES them. I always get so many questions about Cam’s pajamas when I post pictures of them, so I decided to do a little roundup of our favorite baby pajamas! Read More
I cannot begin to tell you how obsessed I am with these milk snob car seat covers. Not only can you use them on baby’s car seat + stroller, but they can be used as nursing covers + shopping cart covers too- so versatile!Read More
After going through a lot of trial and error with pumping, I would love to let you mamas in on a couple tips I’ve learned. I went back to work at 12 weeks postpartum and it was rough. Cam rarely had bottles before my return to work, and I was nervous about not nursing him constantly #momguilt.Read More
