• 1. You do not need to supplement with formula at the hospital just because your milk hasn’t come in yet. Your baby’s stomach is tiny and all t needs to fill it is the little bit of nutrient-rich colostrum that your body is making. 2. How much you pump has no correlation to how much your baby is getting when he or she is on your boob. As moms, we[...]

  • We’re all looking for an easy answer, some handbook to tell us all how we’re supposed to do it. How you avoid raising the kids on scared straight, and how to keep your sanity in the process. The secret? It’s not about YOU. Something I notice about new moms and especially moms of young kids, is that it’s all about what they’re doing for their child. Whether or not they’re[...]

  • If you’re a mom and you’ve hung out with other moms or perused an online forum or Facebook group dedicated to pregnancy and parenthood, you’re probably aware that motherhood is in contention to become the next full-contact Olympic sport. Motherhood has become a knock down drag out fight about who does it right, who does it the best, and how many fingers can be pointed at everyone doing it “wrong”.[...]

  • I always envy those women all done up with fake eyelashes applied perfectly….so I tried it. After successfully gluing one eye shut and putting the other lash on completely crooked, I realized that….no normal person has time for this ****. So a mom friend of mine turned me on to “fiber lashes”. Of course my reaction was, “ain’t nobody got time for that.” But she told me that it’s applied[...]

  • Today, when a breastfeeding mother asked Delta Airlines (via twitter) what their breastfeeding policy was, she was stunned when this was their response. “Unfortunately, you are not able to breast feed if you don’t have a cover up. I’m sorry.” was their response. Then when the customer told them that she needed to feed her baby on her 6 hour flight, they suggested that she pump and bring it on[...]

  • No one wants to have to explain to their child that breasts aren’t just for sex. (But we can explain heads, shoulders, knees, and toes, hell we’ll even make a song about it!) “Heaaaad, shoulders knees, and toes, knees, and toes. Boobies, boobies are made for feeding, made for feeding.” @TheRealHeatherC

  • Being an ERF (Extended Rear Facing) mom is becoming more and more popular. Most moms ultimately decided to do it after doing research on the benefits to the child in the case of an accident, but now, even state legislatures are beginning to catch on and many have actually required or extended the period of time that a child needs to be rear facing while in a car seat. Below[...]

  • GRACO is voluntarily recalling a bunch of car seats after finding that food and dried liquids that get into the buckle, can make it hard to unbuckle. NOTE: GRACO says that it doesn’t effect the ability of the buckle to restrain the child. They suspect that 3.7 people are going to be effected by this recall. Here are the effected toddler covertible models. They were manufactured between 2009 and 2013.[...]

  • I decided that I wanted to cloth diaper my son while I was pregnant, but upon some research, I came to the conclusion that I was not about to shell out $500 on diapers, inserts, covers, yada yada yada. it just seemed like I wasn’t going to be saving any money and would be spending more time on it. It was just a lose lose, in my opinion. I started[...]
