The perfect pillow for the kid who won’t leave your bed…and also for those who sleep alone.

*I received these products free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* We’re still cosleeping. I’m saying this with a mixture of defeat, acceptance, & general I don’t give a flying…well, you know. This reaction comes from four years of trying to boot this kid outta our bed, and eventually it got to the point where we were all, “Let’s just let it happen and move on.” So, we cosleep. With two kids in […]

All you need from birth to potty training is flats & wool

I want to talk to you a little bit today about a small, family owned company called Truly Charis (TC). This company, and it’s creator Destani, are near & dear to my heart. If you know them already you know they have the best wool on the market. I’ve tried a lot of cloth diapers in the 4 years we’ve been at it; Prefolds, Pockets, AIOs. Seriously, you name it, we’ve used it. So, I […]

A look at the DockATot Grand

**I received this product free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.** When discussing something as controversial as sleeping space for your new baby, and even your toddlers, I feel it important to say upfront that I am not a pediatrician or any other kind of doctor. I’m just a mom, trying out a product that I feel comfortable putting our daughter in. She is over a year old and perfectly capable of moving […]

Happy Baby, Happy Mama (A Round Up of Gear for your First Year & Beyond)

*This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Single Edition Media. I received these products for review, but all opinions expressed are my own.*  We’ve all heard it, sleep when baby sleeps, as if somehow that will erase the nonsleep you’re getting at night. It doesn’t. Especially  for non-nappers like myself, and in all honesty when the baby and toddler sleep, all I want to do is my own thing. Like really  magical stuff: […]

Cariloha King Sheet Set ((Review))

*I received this sheet set at a discount in exchange for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* We desperately needed sheets. I had it up to here with washing our sheets every night after one of the children inevitably peed, pooped, spilled breast milk, or spit up on them. Having only one set of sheets as a parent is a HUGE mistake. A time-consuming, soul-sucking mistake. Man, I hate doing laundry. With that in […]

The Baby Sleep Site Review+Giveaway

*I received this e-book free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* I cannot believe we have less two months to go until the newest addition to our family arrives! This pregnancy has flown by, and as I think about what it was like to have a newborn in the house just three short years ago, I’m a tad nervous to brave the sleepless nights all over again–especially now with a toddler, too. However, […]

Calla Toddler Pillow ((Review))

*This product was sent to me for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* ***Update 09/08/16: We no longer use this on little man’s bed as he has transitioned to an adult pillow, but instead it lives in our book nook, the green tent, or comes along for long car trips. While we’ve never tested it, I bet it’d be great for traveling on planes with kiddos, too.*** While I love all products of bedtime comfort: […]

The Montessori Bedroom for the Independent Toddler

Logan’s new room is all about simplicity and accessibility. My main goal was for him to be able to direct where he goes, and why. I also wanted a space where he didn’t have to constantly hear the word “no.” Obviously throughout our house there are many places where Logan can’t have access to cabinets and draws, but his room shouldn’t be one of them. The main snag I hit when putting the room together […]

Sleep Training: For the honest parent who has absolutely no idea how to get their kid sleeping thru the night.

Logan has NEVER slept an entire night in his own bed. Ever. He will be two at the end of June. Some of you may remember my post about co-sleeping, something I didn’t intend to do, fell in love with, and have continued to do to this very day. Even when he sleeps in our bed, he doesn’t sleep thru the night. There are a few reasons for this; firstly, he still breastfeeds and wants […]

Life with a High Needs Baby (And Why I’m Not Okay with CIO)

I worked with kids a lot. When I was a teenager, I taught Vacation Bible School. My first job was in an elementary school and so was my second. I have worked with all ages and with a variety of disabilities. I had the patience and I loved my students, so I always figured I’d make a good mom. My last job before I became pregnant was in a daycare. I remember sitting in the […]

Cosleeping: Why We Think It’s The Best

I feel like it’s important to start with we NEVER planned on cosleeping. It just happened. And it was the best thing that could’ve happened to two parents (especially me) so frazzled and sleep deprived. That being said, I think if you’re going to cosleep it should be a planned thing so that it’s safe for baby. Do as I say, not as I do, right? You’ve waited ten months to see your perfect baby […]
