The months have changed to days in the countdown to meet our second daughter, I’m feeling a mix of emotions, mostly excitement and anxiety as one can expect! There are a few infant essentials that I’ve stocked up on that I’m excited to share today.
I’ve officially switched gears from maternity clothes to nursing-friendly tops and sweaters I can wear all winter long. I have a few already I’m looking forward to wearing: This Cuyana wrap and this Ingrid & Isabel wrap are perfect for covering up and wearing over a nursing tank. I have one of these Target nursing […]
If you’re a breastfeeding mother who works, returning to the office after your maternity leave can be one of the most overwhelming and stressful thoughts.
Today I thought I’d share my running list of products to get before our baby arrives in December- items I need to re-stock and loved using with Piper and new products that I really want to try this time around. Do you have any suggestions?
Now that we are more than halfway through the year, Nameberry has released the top baby names of 2017 so far. This isn’t exactly new news – it came out at the end of June, but I’ve recently become obsessed with baby names considering we have NONE that we agree upon! Next week I’ll share […]

In conversation the other day my friend brought up a really great topic for a blog post – so I though I’d expand upon it! She’s a new mom with an adorable baby and is struggling to find clean skincare to use while breastfeeding. I remember the feeling – my skin glowed my entire pregnancy, […]
It’s pretty easy to look up information on pregnancy, nursing and labor & delivery…. but then what? It’s not something as frequently talked about by any means and for many it’s when the hard part starts :) Today I’m sharing an honest and hilarious post by Melissa Nuñez who is giving us her tips on making […]
