The Perfect Diaper for Little Movers

Posted by on Nov 8, 2017 in Family, New Baby, Parenting | 0 comments

 Sponsored I recently decided to try Huggies Little Movers Diapers to try out on my daughter. These new diapers feature their new moving baby system that gives the diapers 30% more flex. I ordered a size four for my 17-pound 10-month-old daughter. I could have gone with a size three but decided to size up just in case, because it was my first time using the brand. The diapers are very soft. On the outer diaper, they have an adorable Mickey and Minnie Mouse print. Down the middle, there is a Huggies wetness strip that changes color to indicate a wet/soiled diaper – I really love that feature. The Huggies wetness strip saves my daughter from the dreaded diaper checks that she dislikes. Another great addition to these diapers is the Double Grip Strips. They hold the diapers tabs...

We Almost Lost our Baby to RSV

Posted by on Oct 15, 2017 in Family, Health, Hot Topics, New Baby | 0 comments

 This post was sponsored as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. After my third son was born, I thought that I was a pro at being a mom. I knew how to manage fevers, colic, and every possible hiccup that I could face when caring for a newborn. When my son was three months old, he came down with a terrible fever. He wasn’t nursing and had a terrible cough. Within 24 hours we were in the emergency room with him on oxygen. I didn’t know what was happening to my precious baby as the doctors worked frantically to care for him. That night, I sat by his crib in the hospital and didn’t know if he would survive the night. He had contracted RSV. I had...

How to Know Your Child is Ready for Preschool

Posted by on Sep 25, 2017 in Education, Family, New Baby, Parenting | 0 comments

 Sponsored Have you been thinking of transitioning your toddler to preschool but aren’t sure if your child is ready? Even though you are your toddler’s first and most important teacher, it may be time for your little learner to explore the world, meet new friends, and gain knowledge that will be with your child forever. Why is Preschool Important? Preschoolers must explore, experiment, and make discoveries for themselves through playful interactions with the environment as well as with other people in order to make sense of their world. A preschool that promotes STEM and STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math) curriculums, allows children to engage in fun hands-on activities at a very young age. With an early start, your little one will be well prepared for the many years of learning to come. Here is a checklist to see if your little one...

Hands-Free Pumping with Freemie Collection Cups

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Family, Health, New Baby, Parenting | 0 comments

 Sample received I just had my fourth child and now my days are jam packed with kids activities, homework and play dates. All while juggling my newborn’s needs it leaves little time for pumping after nursing to have a decent supply of breast milk in my freezer. I looked online to find something to help me with this problem. I tried a hands-free nursing bras which never held up my pump part enough, so I still had to use my hands which defeated the purpose of being hands-free. I was recently given Freemie Collection Cups by Nuk to review along with a Simply Natural Newborn Gift Set, and it changed my pumping routine for the better. With the Freemie Collection Cups, they say that you can pump discreetly anywhere with these cups, so I gave it a shot. I...
