Life as a brand new mom can be overwhelming.
So many new adjustments all at once.
Healing your postpartum body, caring for a new baby and figuring out if ‘You’ still exist somewhere in there.
By the way, even though your a new mom, ‘You’ still exists.
You may just have to redefine what that means.
Here are our favorite ways to make life easier as a new mom.
If you’re going back to work soon from maternity leave (or have recently re-entered the workforce) and are planning to continue breastfeeding, you’re going to face a bit of an adjustment period.
Today I’m tackling one of the most challenging aspects of breastfeeding for many working women.
This post provides actionable tips to help you reach your breastfeeding goals – even if you’re away from baby at work.
Mirror mirror on the wall…new moms are prettiest of them all.
After nine months of solid wait your baby has finally arrived in your life.
You are absolutely smitten by those chubby cheeks, tiny hands and toes.
What’s the ideal age space between two babies?
This is a question I never really asked myself because I wanted to enjoy every single moment with my daughter. All my friends were planning their second baby by the time the first was going to pre-school.
I couldn’t settle myself to this common idea of a 3-year gap between babies. Having close pregnancies were not something I was very appealed to either.
Have you ever wondered, how the HECK am I supposed to find the time to take care of myself when I have a baby who demands ALL of my attention?
Am I being selfish for wanting to feel good about myself again after I’ve had a baby?
Believe me, I can totally relate to these thoughts and feelings!
Breastfeeding vs bottle feeding (or formula feeding) is such a hot topic.

So you’re in the doctor’s room, being poked and prodded in a most undignified way.
I guess you have to accept that it’s par for the course when you’re pregnant.
All your dignity goes out the window. But finally the grainy image appears on the screen and you feel all gooey because you see your little bean in there.
Until the doc says with a delighted giggle: “Oh wait, there are two.”
Finding out you are having twins is pretty shocking.
So your BFF is becoming a new mom! Whether you are a mom or not, you might be wondering what you can do to help.
Becoming a mom for the first time is one of the most life-changing events. No amount of organizing or cleaning can really prepare you for how life is about to change.
It can be overwhelming, anxiety-inducing, and just plain hard at times.
Okay mamas! You have done the hardest job of all.
You delivered a precious baby after carrying for 10 whole months. You’ve endured morning sickness, night sweats, and heartburn.
You haven’t had a good night’s sleep, a shower, or a good meal in DAYS! You have put all of your energy into taking care of this brand new baby.
