Natural Ways to Ease Baby Gas Pain!

    Thank you Mommy’s Bliss for sponsoring this post! All opinions are 100% my own!     Your baby is crying and you can’t figure out why. You’ve ruled out a dirty diaper, she’s been fed, and she’s not sleepy… It could be her tummy. Leighton recently went through this. She would finish her bottle but would be uneasy. She’d cry for a minute and then stop. I could just tell her little tummy was hurting her. After I fed…

Nutrition on-the-go!

Breakfast is something I don’t eat very often. Actually never during the week. I wake up and feed Leighton and then I make my coffee. I start my work day pretty early. I actually start it when I am feeding Leighton around 2 a.m. I respond to emails and reply to comments on social media during that time. I usually don’t put any food into my stomach until lunch! I know I should eat breakfast but I get so consumed…

Don’t get me wrong I love pool days with the kids BUT I do not like packing for the pool. I always seem to forget something.

Summer staples after BABY!

This post contains affiliate links. Having a baby right before Summer has it’s pros and cons. Pro/ I am not carrying a child in the heat of the Texas summer. Con/ I may not have that “perfect” beach body. I know I want to be comfortable in whatever I wear this Summer. I won’t be wearing daisy dukes or a string bikini that’s for sure. I still will be looking stylish in something more conservative and simple. I’ve rounded up…

A huge thank you to all of the brands that contributed to Leighton’s nursery! They are listed at the bottom. This post also contains affiliate links.

My go to pumping accessories!

This post contains affiliate links. You may or may not know this but breastfeeding did not come easy the third time around like I thought. With Oakland and Ainsley I wasn’t able to breastfeed either and exclusively pumped for 11 months with Oak and 10 months with Ainsley. I could not believe I pumped so long with them because I worked full time as a 1st grade teacher! I would pump in my classroom, the bathroom that was in between…

This post is sponsored by Dreft Purtouch. All of the opinions and thoughts stated are 100% my own.     You are preparing for your little one’s arrival. The nursery is complete, the car seat is installed, and your bags are packed, maybe? What’s next? One thing I always did before the baby came was wash their newborn clothes! Something about that baby scent and holding those tiny clothes in my hands made it all seem so real. With my first two…

Mornings look a little different now.

Thank you Playtexbaby for sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% my own. My mornings are very different now after adding another baby into the mix. Our precious Leighton joined our family on May 4th! Before two kids I wasn’t a morning person and I’m still not. Thankfully I have a ton of help from my amazing husband! On top of the help I am getting I am using some amazing Playtexbaby products! Leighton is waking up every 3 hours and I am…
