The Reflux Rundown

 – 20 minutes elevated after a feeding is 20 minutes. Not 15, not 19, but TWENTY WHOLE MINUTES.  Don’t think you can cheat on this.  You will be sorely mistaken.  – Don’t you dare move that baby at all during those 20 minutes so that their head drops below their body level unless you want […]

When Heaven Knocks

  I lost my maternal grandfather 6 weeks before I married my husband in 2012, on the day I was supposed to have my bridal portraits taken. To say that we were close was an understatement. My granddad was unable to work due to a heart condition, so he was my babysitter from the time […]

My Baby Is Growing Up

I can’t recall the exact moment where I first noticed the difference. But today, while you were falling asleep for your nap, the nap where you asked me to lay down with you, I looked at your peaceful face and saw a child. Not a baby. Yes, you have the same curly hair and thick, […]

I Don’t Like Babies

I don’t like babies. There. I said it. Grab your pitchforks and light the torches. Pelt me with adorable, tiny bows and little shoes and run over me with your trendy, overpriced strollers. Ban me from your playgroups and revoke my “Best Mom Ever” coffee mug. I don’t care. Because I don’t like babies. Or […]

I’m Not a “Crunchy” Mom Anymore

When I had my first son, I was such a warrior of truth. I researched–to the bone–all things related to childbirth, pregnancy, and baby. I had my cloth diapers ready. I was committed to a 100% natural delivery and breastfeeding. I  only allowed my baby to have organic food. I only used handmade and clean […]

Mommy Mantra: I Am

We’ve all had these days (or weeks, or months,) where in the midst of changing diapers, sick babies, cleaning up the house for the ten thousandth time that day, incessant whining, and the everyday, sometimes mundane, tasks, that we begin to say to ourselves “I’m just a mom.” But momma, hear me out: You are SO […]
