michelogo

One of my favorite accessories is a purse. There are so many styles and colors available that you can make a statement with just a purse. Before I had little ones I was always the one to match my clothes and my purse. It was just something I enjoyed doing. It was a lot of work though having to change purses every time one didn't match what I wanted to wear. If this sounds similar to your situation, wait til you hear about Miche Bags!After I had … [Read more...]

First, there are the nagging questions, such as: "Is she getting enough to eat?" or "Is she getting too much?"With our baby girl who is just over three months old now I have exclusively breastfed her. I always wonder when breastfeeding, as most mamas do I am sure, is she getting enough? She is gaining weight and … [Read more...]

The best time to review your nutritional status to make appropriate changes is prior to conception. A very important time of fetal development is during the first several weeks of pregnancy.

Action Baby Carrier Review and Giveaway

IMG_3847

When my oldest was born I didn't hear or see anything about babywearing. I never knew about it so I never wore him. Fast forward 14 years to when I was pregnant with LA in 2010 and I heard a lot about it. I was curious and read up on it. After some research I knew I wanted to wear LA. Shortly after he was born I wore him in a wrap and loved it. As he got older I used structured carriers but my back often hurt so I didn't do it as much as I … [Read more...]
