I shared my medical situation and here is the emotional side. Diastasis Recti Surgery For those of you who read the birth story of […]

Others smile at you in the elevator and ask when you are due. I […]

TinyLove Butterfly Stroll Arch Video Review

The TinyLove Tiny Princess Butterfly Stroll (or the gender neutral Sunny Stroll) is probably one of the best $20 you can spend.

How to Pick Pacifiers and Bottles

There is nothing like walking into a big baby store when registering for your baby shower and seeing a wall, yes a wall, that is 10 feet long by 10 feet high filled with baby bottles and pacifiers. Talk about overwhelming. And your baby hasn’t even arrived yet! The problem with this fact is that […]

TinyLove 3-in-1 Rocker Napper Review

The TinyLove 3 in 1 Rocker Napper is one of my favorite baby gear items this time around with my second child. I love, love, love the style (clean lines) and the design (neutral colors with no characters or fluffy things). But even more so, I heart the functionality of the product. It replaces the […]

Sharing Details of Your Pregnancy or Birth Story Online

This has been a very interesting pregnancy in that my experience of it has been more public. When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a share site that I only used for family. While it was also a personal pregnancy journal, one could only access it by a password. At the time, […]

Preparing a Toddler for a New Sibling

There has been a lot I’ve been doing to prepare for baby #2: reinstalling the infant car seat, dusting off the pack-in-play, and pulling baby clothes out of storage. But the one thing I didn’t have to do the first time around is to prepare a toddler for baby #2. So we have been in […]

Baby Style at BlogHer

I’m really bummed I cannot attend Reviewers Retreat this year because of my pregnancy airline restrictions. Since my due date got moved up, I can’t fly after 37 weeks. Thus, I’m hoping to be able to pull off Blog World a few days later, since it only requires a train ride and no evil TSA […]
