3 Healthy Foods for Kids on the Go

If you’re reading this, you probably have kids, or maybe do a lot of care taking. So, you know how the days can go. Sometimes you get errands done, make it home in time to prepare a healthy lunch, and all is well. Other times, everyone has a diaper blow out at the grocery store, your dentist appointment runs an hour late, and you still have to pick up some essentials at the store. The morning has passed you by and it’s time to eat again, so you look for a quick fix. What do you do?

7 Great Tips for New Moms

This post has been compensated by iHerb.com, however all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Now that I’ve been doing this “mom thing” for over a year now, I’m finally beginning to find a little bit of a groove. Don’t get me wrong, things are ever-changing, but accepting that has been part of transitioning into parenthood! There are still days that seem completely insane and my house becomes a mess within 2 seconds of cleaning it, but I’m good with it. As a first time mom, I wanted to share a few pieces of advice that helped me care for my babies this past year. Maybe it will help someone out, or make your

10 Tips for Running with a Stroller

Now that spring is in full swing (for the most part), the twins have finally been able to accompany me for  some outdoor workouts. Many of you know that weightlifting is my preferred method of working out, but believe it or not, I’m always game for a good run. Running and I are like old friends. We were close, then we hadn’t talked for awhile, but when we reunited, things fell back into place. Part of the reason I began running again, was because

How to Stay Healthy as a New Mom

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Hyperbiotics, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #HealthiestDaysAhead   http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH.

If you’ve ever been sick while your little ones are sick, then this post is for you! After going through not one, but TWO bouts of the stomach bug, I was exhausted. On two occassions this past winter, one twin developed a stomach bug, and passed it to the other, then passed it to me. Lovely, right? This meant that amidst my own vomiting, I had to clean up theirs’, as well as change butts and do a billion loads of laundry!  Eventually, my husband had to take a day off of work to help all of us, because we were a complete disaster.  This whole fiasco made me realize

Eco-Friendly Toys and Activities with First Edventures

*Disclosure: I received a complimentary product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.

Unless you’ve been living under a gigantic rock, you’ve probably noticed that monthly subscription boxes are all the hype these days. I know, some of you might be thinking, “Oh great, another way to accumulate more crap in my house!” While I often think the same thing, not all of these boxes are full of useless items. We recently had the opportunity to check out a box from First Edventures, who recently launched their monthly boxes of

My Journey of Exclusively Pumping For Twins

On March 16, 2017, I took a huge sigh of relief and gained a little bit of my freedom back. After 405 days of pumping, I was finally done. For just over a year of my twins’ lives, I spent at least 3.5 hours per day being milked by a machine. That’s 1,417 hours and 30 minutes. To put things into perspective, those hours equal just over 59 days, or about 2 months. While I am eternally grateful for the ability to produce ample milk for my babies, I’m not sure that I would do it all again. We often hear the amazing feeding stories, but we rarely discuss the downfalls. I’m not sharing this because I believe any particular method of feeding is best (I believe everyone is doing their own version of their “best”), instead I just want to

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Spring is oh so close, my friends! If you’re anything like my little family, a tease of nice weather might inspire you to plan a getaway. Maybe you’re looking forward to a day trip to the beach, a visit to family for Easter, or a full blown vacation. If you have little ones, you might also be stressing about what to pack, and how to make sure they’re happy during your travels.

Well, stress no more! I’m here to share

What I Love Most About Being a New Mom

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

This past year was my first year of motherhood, and boy was it trying. I’m sleep deprived, drowning in laundry, and I’ve spent more time with my breast pump than I have with my husband (who is also exhausted). Almost every new mom that I’ve met has found her life to be similar to mine, which made me realize something. When we chat, we often bring up the downsides of being new parents. I get it, we need to vent and ease our minds a little. However, what about

5 Tips to Soothe a Crying or Colicky Baby

Bringing a newborn home for the first time is an overwhelming feeling. Parents are usually over the moon, and want to spend quality time with their new arrivals. Occasionally, plans for “family time” get interrupted and we find ourselves helpless, with a crying baby (or babies!) in our arms. We’ll ask ourselves questions such as: Is baby hungry? Is he too hot or too cold? Does he need a diaper change? Does he have colic? How about
