As a mom who has survived colic, I wanted to pass along a website that I found really helpful during our colic days. It was frustrating, exhausting, draining, and emotionally overwhelming for me. On days where I felt like I would lose my mind, I would call my husband, a friend, and I would also visit www.colicsupport.com.…Continue

I remember thinking, “what the heck would I do with all of these things?” Well now I get it!! I…Continue

My daughter will let you know when she doesn’t approve of what is being served for dinner. She’ll first look at what is on her plate with a strong frown.

Last week, I made the decision to start weaning Colin, my 11-month old baby boy. The process has been anything but easy. My main goal was to eliminate nursing him to sleep, since most of his nursing sessions were revolved around naps and bedtime. Over the past two months, his nursing sessions went from every 3 hours to every 4-5 hours during the day. Nighttime was a different story, he was waking up…Continue

Towards the end of my first pregnancy, I was getting a little impatient, more tired and VERY big! I couldn’t imagine going through 40 weeks and then adding another 2 if my daughter was late.

The Squirt baby food dispensing spoon is the most convenient feeding tool I've used for on-the-go feedings. I purchased The Squirt last week and my son absolutly loves it! He never wants to eat pureed baby food and with this tool I've been able to give him almost anything!!
The bulb holds up to 3 ounces of baby food and is easy to fill. To use The Squirt, all you have to do is simply squeeze the bulb to…Continue
