Newborn night wakings and Mommy Sleep – the 4-7-8 method

Sleep has never been my strong suit. Pregnancy insomnia hit me hard with both of my boys, and after Colin was born, the combination of night wakings, hormones, a nearly complete inability to nap during the day and being lousy at sleeping in general left me feeling exhausted all the time. I couldn’t take any […]


Asher: One Month Update

I’m so excited to begin sharing monthly updates about our Asher bug with the hive. This little guy has stolen our hearts and is growing like a weed already! Since this is month one, we have to start from the very beginning! Stats/Feeding: At the beginning of the month, when he was fresh out of […]

Taking the E out of EBF

Before Colin was born, I did everything I could to prepare. I read books. I joined Facebook moms groups. I read mommy blogs, surfed the internet and took a breastfeeding class.

A few weeks ago, already growing impatient with my lumbering pregnant form.  I've only gotten bigger since then.

To Induce or Not to Induce – That is the Question

It’s official – I am ready to pop.  Days shy of 40 weeks pregnant, I am feeling pretty over it. As much as I know that welcoming baby to the outside world is a game changer – it gets harder before it gets easier. At this point, I don’t even care. I am swollen, waddling, aching, not […]
