In July I hosted the BlogHer Baby Shower in San Jose, CA, as one of The Baby Ladies (with Christa from Little Us). We partnered with two amazing non-profits, the Save Babies Through Screening Foundation and Baby’s First Test. They both work tirelessly to bring awareness to the life-saving newborn screenings. September is Newborn Screening Awareness Month so I thought I’d share a bit more because… #themoreyouknow!
What is Newborn Screening?
Newborn Screening is a series of simple
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 ABC Kids Expo last fall. I
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.

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

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.

Creating a baby registry is sooooo much fun, but also soooo overwhelming. I remember walking into the store the first time with my husband to create our registry. Rows and rows of products, 5 (or 30!) different types of the same thing, what do we REALLY need and what can we do without? I had read about products but still felt unprepared! We asked for help, then we went home and changed the baby registry online—again and again (thank goodness
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Zarbee’s Naturals (#ZarbeesCough). I received product samples and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Did you know that about 10,000 kids every year are sent to the emergency room from accidental cough syrup overdoses? In 2007 the FDA stated these products were not safe for young children and many were then removed from store shelves or were labeled for ages 4 and up. So when you have little ones that need relief, where do you find it? It
