Don't compare yourself or your baby with anyone! Seriously! I have seen moms post pictures of their babies "sitting up unsupported" at three months. And I will tell you what: it is a huge, fat lie. First, lady, the baby is propped up in their crib against pillows! Everyone can see that. Secondly, did you give birth to Superman? No. What I am saying is, social media can be awesome for mom support groups...but it can be the devil for comparing. Don't fall into the trap and don't let it bother you if someone else's child reaches a milestone before yours. Chances are they will both be wearing a cap and gown leaving the house in 18 years, and both of you moms will really have something to cry about.

I realize the importance of saving money, but sadly, and shockingly, the two sizes are actually very different, for very specific and well thought out reasons:  TUMMY TIME The Deluxe is distinctly made...

Being pregnant with my second kiddo, I have decided to hire a professional photographer to do newborn pictures of the new addition, as well as the rest of our family with her. While having a new little one can already be expensive, I was wondering if the cost is worth it... so I took to Facebook to see what other parents thought of their worth and experiences!  After an hour, I have had 18 responses and 17 of them are YES! The one comment that read no, thought you could try to do them yourself for free. Here is my...

I’m all for normalizing breastfeeding and whipping out my lovely milk makers whenever and wherever necessary but it’s soooo nice when businesses take the time to dedicate special areas for feeding! Recently, I had the marvelous experience of breastfeeding my child in one of Baby Logic's Nursing Rooms. The store has two rooms that are dedicated to parents for feeding and diaper changing (with extra diapers and wipes)!  I was excited to see how beautiful the rooms were but as soon as I sat down and prepared baby and myself for our feeding, I realized that this snack time was...
