Baby Feeding Tips
Posted by Janssen Bradshaw
One thing I take for granted as an adult is that spilling on my clothing while I eat is an exception, rather than a rule. Even messy foods, like soup and tomato sauce, I can generally manage to keep off my shirt or lap.
Fortunately, I have a baby around to remind that this is a learned skill. She is NOT so successful at coming away from the table still looking clean. Sometimes, when I’m wiping her off, I marvel a little at how she managed to make such a mess while eating!
With Thanksgiving coming up next week, I’m scoping out these cute bibs to keep her outfit clean while we feast on sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce (both of which are inclined to leave their marks on uncovered clothing):

With Hanukkah beginning just three weeks from tonight, my husband and I are in hardcore gift-buying mode… the holiday has really snuck up on us this year. We’re especially excited since this is Judah’s first Hanukkah and we can’t wait to build wonderful holiday memories each year. Since Judah will only be six months old for the holiday, it’s not like he needs a ton of presents.
I recently discovered a gift giving wishlist guide that features four main gifts: Something I Want, Something I Need, Something I’ll Wear, Something I’ll Read. Since Hanukkah is eight days long, I decided to expand it out to include four more categories: Something I’ll Make, Something I’ll Do, Something I’ll Share, Something I’ll Feed.
Take a peek at Judah’s Hanukkah wish list (really, his Mommy & Daddy’s wish list for him) to see how we’re taking a new spin with gift giving for our baby’s first holiday… and get inspired for your own holiday baby wish list!

Last night I held my baby close and nursed her before bed. The past few weeks have been lovely. The fall season has brought with it a host of new adventures, milestones and excitement for what is to come. But it has also brought with it a more strong willed baby eager to explore and educate her mama when it comes to her wants and needs. See, despite having done the parenting thing before, Lola quickly taught me that she was her own person and as a result she would dance to the beat of her own drum, a beat quite different than the one her big sister danced to.

As much as I think that sugar is the devil, I’m surely not going to keep my little ones from enjoying Halloween! I’ve been reading some of the thoughts of some from my favourite health-food and traditional food bloggers, and while I respect them for all of their knowledge and kindness in sharing of that vast knowledge with their readers, I can’t get behind the Halloween candy boycott.

The fun dressing up part is over and you’ve maxed out your memory card with pictures. The costume is off, your little one is fast asleep, and you’re left with a plastic Jack O’ Lantern full of sweet treats. Now what? At such a young age, your little one probably isn’t too keen on candy anyways. Besides, eating too many sweets is not be the best option for your little trick-or-treater’s delicate little chompers. Below are listed some great options to put that sugar stash to use without sacrificing any of the fun.
