baby allergic to breastmilk

Have you ever wondered, can a baby be allergic to breastmilk? I understand that mothers choose how to feed their children based on their beliefs, and I’ve chosen to breastfeed. I feel that it is the only option for us. It gives Smalls the best possible start (what formula can guarantee that your kid will…

My Kid Is An Escape Artist {+ $3 Off Huggies!}

So. Diapers. They’re generally the bane of  my existence. Mostly because The Baby has figured out how to take them off. He’s very, very recently turned 2, going on 20. He’s suddenly talking up a storm, jumping off the furniture, removing his diaper, and opening up doors (with locks). You read that right. He knows how to take…

I am so excited to welcome Kim Spaetti of The Lavender Ladies! I’m writing this at 27 weeks pregnant, so I’m nowhere near the end of my pregnancy. I decided that it would be a good time to “freeze” my membership at my local cardio class last week before another month worth of dues was…

Is your baby ready to start solids? If so, consider baby led weaning. It's safe, fun, and your baby gets to experience real food right away!

I’m feeling slightly sentimental since The Baby’s first birthday. Yup. He’s not a baby anymore…. So rather than cry about it (I’ve done enough of that this month!), I figured I’d reminisce. Because…well, he’s my last baby! *sniff* I have had a lot of moms ask me about starting solids, and many are surprised to…

ultimate bundle

Do you sometimes feel like you’re a zookeeper? Maybe you feel this way all.the.time? I get it. I’m sure you’ve heard “not my circus, not my monkeys”…except this is your circus. And if you’re like me, you’re the “ring mommy”. And what a job it is! I didn’t have illusions of glamor, but all the laundry, diapers, stretch…

Earlier this week, I talked about how I realized I was fast becoming the dreaded martyr mom. Sure, I wear the Mombie badge with pride…but since The Baby has started sleeping, I’ve had some time to work on, well, me! Let me tell you, it’s been eye opening. I love to organize, make lists, and I…

make your own play dough

So. Today Smalls really wanted to play Playdough. Fine…except for one small problem: our homemade dough had completely dried out. Thankfully, I have an amazing salt dough recipe that is quick, easy, and will only cause minor burns on your hands while you knead it. A bonus? We got to do some kitchen fun, learn…

Happy Monday, everyone! Did you miss me? I certainly missed y’all. In case you didn’t notice, I’ve been sick. It sucks. What sucks worse is that Smalls has been sick. He had a horrible virus that knocked my superhero out for nearly a WEEK! And now he’s teething. Poor little guy is getting all 4…
