How Babywearing Saved My Sanity

How Babywearing Saved My Sanity

I recently had my fourth baby, and my older children are five, seven, and nine. I quickly realized that our “on the go” lifestyle wasn’t going to slow down simply because we added a new baby. Our calendar was filled with sports and extra curricular activities, and field trips and class parties. Toting around a bulky stroller would rarely be an option.The easiest way for me to keep up with my big kids while caring for my baby was wearing him. I fell in love with two carriers, and I alternate between the two of them depending on the situation.Ring...

Caring for Your Tula Carrier

Picking a baby carrier can be a hard decision. For me, I have discovered that I am a bit finicky with my choices. I’ve had 2 kinds of wraps, a mei tai, and two soft-structured carriers through my 2 small children. When I think about having more babies, I think about getting a new carrier. So far, however, my favorite carrier has been my Tula. Tula carriers come in Standard and Toddler sizes. I purchased a Standard in a blue chevron print, and I have loved it. I also have the infant insert to use before baby hits the 15 lb....

When Your Fur Babies are No Longer the Baby

One thing that I can take off of my “never going to happen to me” list is that my dog has become more of, well, a dog after our daughter was born.

Smart, well trained, loving, energetic, and housebroken from the start, he was always a little neurotic and anxious, which can be typical of many older rescue dogs.

How to Manage Cluster Feeding So You Don’t Go Insane

One of the things about being a new mom I was most excited about was breastfeeding. I thought it was just amazing that women can naturally provide everything their baby needs. I am the first woman in my family to breastfeed and because of that, I had very little exposure or knowledge of it apart from advice given by friends.The day after delivery my doctor checked in to see how we were doing, and that is where I first heard the term cluster feeding. I should have had some indication of what it meant when he slightly chuckled while he...

Got Nursing Neck? Try Hot Stone Therapy!

I never had great posture to begin with, and when you add in nursing and carrying around toddlers on one hip for eight years, it exacerbates the whole problem. Finally, after weaning and losing the baby weight and doing everything I could to recover from producing and sustaining life, I decided to do something about it. Part of the reason I decided to do something about it stemmed from constant neck pain. I would get pinched nerves and tension knots that impeded my ability to turn or flex my neck and it made life miserable. I began doing back and shoulder...
