My Solo Mama Routine w/ an Infant & Three Year Old

The scariest thing about having a second baby for me is taking care of that baby and my three year old while my husband is away. I lost a lot of sleep while pregnant thinking about how there was no possible way I could care for another baby alone. And then when Baby Brother Stroller […]

Belly Binders: Bellefit v. Belly Bandit

When I was pregnant with my first baby, Little Stroller, I purchased an abdominal binder, the Bamboo Belly Bandit, after reading about the benefits of binding the midsection after delivery.

Playroom for a Big Brother

Over the summer once the reality of our unexpected addition started to sink in, we started to really put some thought into how we’d use the rooms in our house since we put an addition on last year. When we first moved into the new family room I sectioned off a 5′ area behind a sectional […]
