Babywearing with a Ring Sling (Snuggy Baby giveaway)

I’ve been babywearing for nearly 5 years, since our first was born. One of my carriers way back then was a ring sling—I really WANTED to love it, the ease of use, the comfy pouch for baby, and the beautiful fabric hanging from the rings that could be used as a nursing cover or burp cloth… but I really struggled babywearing with a ring sling.

When you have a newborn baby—especially your first!—you will be in a panic to make them comfortable and stop crying. For me, that meant quickly ditching my ring

Bumbleride’s NEW Indie 4 stroller: ready. explore. uniquely you.

Last fall I tried out the wonderful Bumbleride Indie stroller and still LOVE it! It moves like a dream. If you remember, I had that video of my then 3-year-old pushing his little sister in it because it IS so easy and he even commented about how “fast” it goes.

So when I heard Bumbleride was introducing a NEW version of the Indie stroller… one with FOUR wheels (instead of three), I had to try it! I first encountered it at the

the first refrigerated organic yogurt pouches

I participated in a Blogger Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stonyfield. I received coupons to facilitate my shopping trip and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

There are three things my kids love and will eat anytime: yogurt, fruit, and “pouches.” There are three things I love as their mom: the ease of those pouches, healthier eating, and organic, pure food for my babies.

You’re doing OK, mom! (raise money for Save the Children)

When you’re going to have a baby you do so much research on caring for them, right?

You will start to question every decision you make, you’ll feel pressures from society that will make you wonder if you’re a terrible mother, and you’ll wonder if your kid is developing at the “right” speed.

5 OTHER uses for diaper rash cream

~This post was written in a partnership with Pinxav. Any opinions are my own.

Okay, moms, we’ve all been there. We all have some sort of diaper rash cream or ointment on hand, we’ve all wiped it on the baby’s bottom. Did you know 75% of babies will develop diaper rash at least once every six months? Eeek. We try to prevent it and when it comes, we treat it.
