How To Transition Your Nursing Baby to Solid Foods

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and Gerber® Pure®. All opinions are mine alone. #GerberPureWater #CollectiveBias This may seem like a simple topic, but with my first baby, I had no idea when to give him anything solid to eat. I mean, he was already so chubby. But, as he hit about 9 months or so, he was wanting to eat everything we were eating. My natural instincts told me that if he wanted some, give it to him. But, as a first-time mom, I was concerned my instincts were not instincts, but just guesses. If you are ever unsure on your mom instincts, trust your pediatrician for any advice! Fast-forward to baby number three, and now I am confident on transitioning babies from nursing to solid foods. I’m in the transition as we speak with my 10-month-old. He literally screams if he doesn’t get to eat…

5 Ways To Eat Healthier On The Go

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and the Coca-Cola Company. All opinions are mine alone. #NourishOnTheGo #CollectiveBias As moms, we are always on the go. Even in our own home we are running from dishes to wiping bottoms, to emails and back to dishes again. There’s a rare and sweet opportunity when we sneak off to our favorite hiding place, which lasts about 1 minute before we hear a disaster brewing. Eating healthy is difficult being so busy, so here are: 5 ways to eat healthier on the go: Focus on What You Can Grab: Fill your fridge with healthy items you can grab. These are things like fresh-cut fruit, protein shakes and juices, apples or cheese sticks. I personally love these Odwalla Juices, the Groovin Greens Fruite and Veggie drink because its straight up clean and pure. Drinking vitamins is one of your best choices for…

The Question I Wish I Knew I’d Have to Answer in The Delivery Room

*this post is sponsored by CBR. As always, my opinions are all my own! I’m three babies deep now, so the delivery process isn’t as mysterious and foreign to me now, as it was with my first baby. I remember staying up late and watching A Baby Story (apparently they are bringing it back!) at 2am on TLC. I was trying to mentally prepare myself for this unknown, magical experience that was going to happen to my body. Of course my hospital bag was packed three months too early (my first baby was a week late), and I was packed for a week stay at a hotel. My new baby had five outfits and seven hats. All were way too big. I prepared for my first labor by spending hours and hours on Pinterest, reading everything I could. Making sure I knew about every car seat and high chair on…

What I Missed On My First Registry

Well, I am a mom of three now, and boy were there some things I totally and utterly missed out on because I didn’t put them on my registry. Do you know how many clothes I got? Blankets and cute things that were to die for at the time, but totally not that useful? I literally had a Boppy Pillow sitting in my closet for three years until I gave it to my sister. I just thought I needed it. PS, if you sign up for Amazon’s Baby Registry, you get $100 dollars towards diapers and wipes. Believe me, you need it, and everyone uses Amazon! I recently did my first few months with the diaper subscription. I am so mad I never did that before. Totally worth it. I’ll be reviewing it here soon.
