Life-Changing Self-Care Tips For New Moms

Being a mom means sacrificing a lot of your free time for the sake of, well, being a mom! When you become a parent, your child becomes your main focus, your biggest passion, and your number one priority (sorry, hubby). While this is good, this can also be extremely rough on a busy working mom. For my first child, I was a stay-at-home mom, and my husband was at work all day paying the bills. We made this work for a while, but because of various money issues, I’ve had to pick up a job as well and have grandma help out […]

Baby Fun in the Sun: What are the Safest Baby Sunscreens for Your Baby & Toddler?

WARNING – not all ‘sunscreens’ with ‘baby’ labeled on them are safe for your children! My fellow moms, yes, that time of the year is here — summer.

At some point in every parent’s life, they wish their child would just sleep one night through but will they grant you that few hours of pure happiness? No they won’t. Probably not even when they are teenagers…. I can already hear “Mom, did you see my silver shoes?!” What is up with children? I know they don’t always need their sleep but parents do too! I noticed that one day my toddler will go to bed when I say it is bedtime now and everything will go smooth, but then the next day it is chaos to put him […]

But a lot of the time we may not realize that the products we buy to promote a healthy lifestyle for them may actually make it worse!
