Baby's Day Out

Make your outings with Baby fun and easy with these inspired ideas. From a short trip to the coffee shop to a stroll around the block, each small excursion offers a world of possibilities.

Find Your Perfect Stroller

My husband sometimes makes fun of me for having so many strollers packed away in our garage.

But with four children six and under, strollers are an important part of my life–and along every walk of life, there’s a different kind of stroller to push.

Tips & Tricks for Successful Babywearing

It’s no secret that I L-O-V-E babywearing. Sure, I loved it with my first. But once my second baby (and even my third) were born, babywearing became a lifestyle. We all know the perks of wearing your baby. Less crying, free hands, amazing bonding, strangers can’t touch them, easing breastfeeding, etc. You don’t have to lug around a carseat or stroller, either! And with other kids in tow, babywearing is a huge lifesaver. I can take my older girls to the park or to the library or to the store with my baby strapped to my chest the entire time. Margot (4 months) LOVES to be worn in a wrap or carrier. She is happy as a clam and would be perfectly content hanging out on me all day long if I let her.

5 On-the-Go Essentials for Your Breastfed Babe

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers for free.

Little Miss Margot is exclusively breastfed at this point. We’ve worked really hard and overcome a lot, so I’m happy that I am able to nurse her. With two other children, we are frequently out of the house and on the go. Babies are usually known for needing everything but the kitchen sink when they are away from home, but the truth is, a breastfed babe (who isn’t yet eating solid foods) doesn’t need much. It’s a perk of breastfeeding, for sure! In fact, Little Margot needs so little that I usually don’t take a diaper bag with me. Instead, I just put a few necessities in my purse and off we go!

Here are 5 on-the-go essentials for your breastfed baby…

5 Ways to Handle the Back-to-School Season with Baby

It’s hard to believe that back-to-school season is upon us, and for me, this fall has one extra layer of crazy thrown into it with the addition of a days-old newborn. 

Maybe we didn’t think that one through fully, huh?

My daughters go to a small school that doesn’t have bus services or drop-off/pick-up, so parents walk their young children into class. And because my girls are only in preschool and first grade, I will be there pretty much all day, every day. We’re talking thrice-a-day pick-ups or drop-offs.

To say I was a little nervous would be an understatement. After months of dreading it, I’ve reached a state of happy denial–I’m refusing to worry about it and instead, taking a positive approach and prepping myself for some ways that I can make it all work.

 

6 End-of-Summer Activities to Do with Your Little One

Summer is quickly coming to an end (in fact, in our town, school started three weeks ago!), so now is the time to take advantage of these last sunny days.

In June, it seems like there is so much summer ahead, but with it winding down, it’s the perfect opportunity to squeeze in a few more warm weather activities with your family.
