I am struggling today. I would really love to close my laptop, put my pj’s back on, and veg out with Netflix. But I can’t.

Breastfeeding Month 14: Yes, It’s Still Beneficial!

Yesterday, I was that one weird mom trying to inconspicuously nurse her acrobatic toddler in the corner of the science museum. My toddler was squirmy, fussy, overstimulated, and overtired. Breastfeeding is the only way to help him when he’s in this state – so that’s what I did. Maybe I wasn’t that “weird mom,” but […]

Questions to Ask if Buying A Used Car Seat

Today, I had a really weird experience. My baby outgrew his infant car seat a few months ago and I wasn’t sure what to do with it, as none of my friends/family are pregnant right now or in need of one, so I decided to post it for sale on the LetGo app. It took […]

Breastfeeding Month 11: Sleepy Snuggles

I started writing this post last night, as I lay on my side in bed with my little dumpling snuggled up in the crook of my arm, and firmly latched onto my boob. My free hand was strategically trying to keep hold of my phone, while tapping out a post with one thumb. I quickly realized that this was not only a bad idea because of how uncomfortable it was, but also because the phone almost slipped out of my hand and onto my baby’s head.

Hi, I’m New Here!

I can’t believe I’m finally taking this first step of starting a blog, and writing a post. I feel like an explorer of some vast unknown land. Super excited, but super intimidated. There is so much I have to learn! Between the widgets, the plug-ins, the hosts, and all the other techy stuff – not […]
