Hip Dysplasia: Our Pavlik Harness Journey

  June is Hip Dysplasia Awareness month, so I figured it was time to get this post up! When Baby Joe was diagnosed with hip dysplasia, there was a ton of medical information out there, but there wasn't really anything practical - like what can he wear, how do I hold him, what products can I use? I really wanted to share our story, and all of the things that helped us along the way.

Is the Snoo Worth the Money?

When I first found out I was pregnant, I began researching ALL the things. I had seen the Snoo all over Instagram, and had some friends that raved about it. Since I was a first-time mom, I had nothing to compare it to and was a little hesitant spending that much money on a bassinet. Then I read Dr. Harvey Karp's book, The Happiest Baby on the Block, and listened to a few podcast interviews with him, and I knew I wanted to take the leap and buy the Snoo. So now that I've been using it for almost two months, is the Snoo worth the money?

The Easiest Easter Basket – Social Distancing Friendly

Obviously with everything going on in the world, Easter is going to be a little different this year. No church, no extended family, no Easter brunch out with friends. It's just going to be different.  Initially, it made me sad. However... when I actually got to thinking about it... nothing about Easter itself is changing. We're still celebrating Jesus, we're still with the people we love most, and our kids will still know the meaning of the day. Read More

Bath Time with Baby Joe

Thank you so much to Walmart Baby for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. Something that I had huge anxiety about, has quickly become one of my favorite activities to do with Baby Joe. As most of you know, I suffer from anxiety pretty bad. And becoming a mom has changed me so much already, I am more calm, grounded and patient. I don't have anxiety over big things as much anymore. But I did have anxiety about a few "firsts" - baby's first bath, leaving the house alone with him for the first time, first diaper change in public, first time taking the car seat off the stroller etc. Luckily sweet boy takes after mama and loves bath time. Today I am going to share all of our favorite bath products! Read More
