We’ve been traveling with Piper since she was 4 months old and despite sleeping in small hotel rooms, unfamiliar bedrooms and most recently in a tent in Maine, Piper has rarely had any issues sleeping through the night on our trips.
I’ll admit I was pretty overwhelmed with the thought of packing for 10 days on the road with Piper for our recent trip to Maine. I started packing for us all about a week before we left and made a big checklist to ensure we wouldn’t forget anything (which we did).
Last week we ran out of diapers, which isn’t an uncommon thing around here — but we had not a single diaper in the house after Piper took her bedtime bath. So, I got out of my sweats and ran up the street to get diapers, not exactly what I feel like doing after a […]
I feel fortunate that Piper has always loved bath time from a very young age. She really looks forward to it and I can barely get her out of the tub these days, she pretends to fall asleep and says night-night until I turn off the lights to make her get out! We have a […]
Lately I’ve been on a clean beauty kick and I’ve spent countless hours researching natural beauty products to use for myself and Piper. After our recent trip to the beach I realized we really need a great sunscreen that lacks harsh chemicals but also works. I did a lot of research and these are the […]
Knock on wood, Piper hasn’t been sick too much in her 20 months of life so far. I attribute this mainly to a year of breastfeeding and being at home with a nanny and not in daycare around as many germs. Next year when she goes to school we are in for big changes! I […]
Piper has always suffered from bad diaper rash, it’s become more manageable with time (especially when we changed her wipes) but I’m always curious about what we could be doing differently — and what other moms do to prevent and treat diaper rash. I recently asked in The Mama Notes Private Facebook Community (are you […]
I’m particularly excited about today’s post with Jessica who pens the Clean beauty blog, Bare Beauty. Not only is Jessica a gem in real life — but I love her mission. I attempted to only use Clean products while pregnant and have been trying to do the same for Piper now (but I know I […]
As a blogger I have the (fortunate) opportunity to try a ton of beauty products — for both myself and Piper. Piper has really sensitive and dry skin – there are a few patches that I swear are eczema so I’m pretty particular about what I use on her. I’ve been trying to find something […]
I got a rude awakening at the doctor’s office the other day that Piper’s skin is super dry and that I should be moisturizing much more than I am. It’s funny how obsessed I am with my own skincare that I’ve failed Piper in this department! I’m a product junkie and have a ton of different […]
Image by Olive Juice Photography I decided that I’ll try to post monthly updates on Piper here on my blog — if you’re not into babies than I apologize in advance :) I can’t believe that Piper is already 5 weeks old, I know that everyone says time flies but I didn’t expect it to […]
