The holiday season is finally upon us, and I couldn’t be more excited! This will be Margot’s very first Christmas, which is always super special. I love the holiday season and try to make the very most of it, especially now that I’m a mom. Even before Thanksgiving, we’re listening to holiday music and doing Christmas crafts.

If You Could Put Anything on Your Registry, What Would It Be?

“A dream is a wish your heart makes when you’re fast asleep.” – Cinderella

Every mother dreams of creating a warm, comfortable nest for her baby. Of showering her baby with essentials — love and support and yes, diapers! — prior to her arrival. Of giving her future child the moon and the stars, whether that means a lovely, calming nursery or a college fund legacy.

But sometimes, our wildest dreams need a boost. A helping hand. A fairy godmother, if you will.

My Top 12 At-Home Cold Remedies for Babies & Toddlers

Cold and flu season is upon us. As a mother of three little ones, I know just how rough this time of year can be. From coughs and colds to fevers and flu, kiddos get sick pretty often.

Like most mamas, I prefer to do things the all-natural way to keep my baby healthy and safe. Yes, sometimes medicine is necessary, but there are many natural ways to soothe colds at home! As always, ask your doctor what’s best for your little one.

When Baby Is Sick

This past weekend, Margot was sick for the very first time. We were lucky she made it to 7 months old before she ever got a bug. But oh my goodness, there is nothing worse than a sick baby. She wasn’t even THAT sick, not really. She didn’t have a fever or an infection. She just had a really bad cold. She couldn’t sleep because she couldn’t breathe. She wouldn’t nurse because she couldn’t breathe. Instead, she just wanted to cry and be held in our arms. It was heartbreaking.
