Planning to hit up Walt Disney World with your baby and preschooler? Curious as to what you’ll need in the park every day and what you can leave behind? Well, I just got back from a week long trip to Disney World with my husband, 3 year old daughter and infant son and I can totally help you! I’ll clue you in on the items that we were SO grateful to bring with us every day, to the ones we liked having just in case, and which ones you can just leave behind (either at home or in the hotel). And as an extra bonus? EVERYTHING can be bought on Amazon TODAY (and don’t forget to click through and become an Amazon Prime member with free two day shipping!):
When it comes to a daily routine with babies, it’s the little details that make a huge difference. And when it comes to nursing and pumping, it can be those small things that make feeding your baby easier for everyone. That’s why Philips Avent is committed to fine-tuning their products. They genuinely want to improve the lives of parents across Canada and the States. I especially love how the Comfort Breast Pump is designed to allow me to nurse my son on one side and pump on the other with complete ease. It’s such a time-saver and I love the efficiency of it. I really appreciate how Philips Avent is supportive of parents who nurse and parents who pump – all they want to is to assist you in feeding your baby in the way that is best for you and your family.
Valentine’s Day is coming and I’m sure that you’re thinking up wonderful ways to celebrate with your partner, spouse, or friends but have you considered using the holiday to encourage your children to embrace all their loving relationships? From the time I was a toddler, my father would carefully pick out a card to give to each of his daughters on Valentine’s Day. They always featured a poem and were signed “Love, Dad”. I received one of these cards every year without fail, even after I moved out, went to college, and got engaged. The simple action of giving me a card on Valentine’s Day was my father way of showing me that I didn’t “need a man” on this holiday. Yes, a romantic Valentine’s with the one you love is fantastic, but so is knowing that a lot of people out there love you and think you’re great.
The first year with your baby is a lot of little moments and big milestones. It can be overwhelming, frustrating, exhilarating, and amazing. It can also be a complete sucker of time. Time spent nursing, time spent rocking the baby, time spent doing extra laundry, and time spent shopping for baby necessities. Like diapers. OMG. The number of diapers you will buy and the time you spend buying them! It’s unbelievable to me how it always seemed like we needed to run to the store and get more diapers. No matter how hard I tried and planned… it seemed like we’re always loading up in the car to buy more. So guess how excited I was to discover that Sam’s Club is now offering a 2 month bulk supply of diapers (ON SALE). It’s amazing how the Huggies® Little Movers 2 month supply gave me back time to spend with my baby!

I hate teething. It is SERIOUSLY the worse. I joke that teething is nature’s birth control. It’s awful for the baby (they are in such pain and completely confused about what’s happening), it’s awful for you (you can’t get them to stop screaming), and it’s awful for anything located within 4″ of the baby (everything will end up in their mouth and gnawed on). But you know one thing that doesn’t have to be awful when it comes to teething? The tools you use to help sooth it. From teething necklaces to teething toys, I’ve found 12 totally cool and unique teething necklaces and toys for you and your baby to enjoy.
Every other year, my little family and I spend the Christmas holidays in Texas with The Boy’s family. Those years are super fun because we’re not stressing about travel and my mother-in-law throws one FABULOUS Christmas Eve party. Tons of people show up and there’s always lots of food, music, and talking. The dress code is nice but casual so this year, I thought I’d toss the littles in some cute jeans and make adorable graphic tops for them with my Cricut Explore Air. Check out this “Merry Everything” graphic T-shirt and onesie (featuring Cricut)!

Are you a new mom or dad with a baby in diapers? Are you having a rough time getting any kind of sleep at night? I know, I know – sleep deprivation is the worst! And the reality is, with a new baby, you’re just not going to sleep through the night for a while. However, you can make the sleep that you do get a little better with my top 5 ways to sleep easier with a new baby (featuring Walgreens Well Beginnings).
One of the things no one told me about when I became a mom was the amount of time that I would spend thinking about my kid’s gut. I want to encourage them to “go with their gut” during their life and to do that – I’ve got to make sure that they’re well taken care of. And, after a particularly scary ER visit for an out-of-whack gut issue when Melanie was little, you bet your sweet buns that I’m vocal about making sure everyone is aware it. So, allow me to pass along my knowledge to you. Here’s my top five tips for toddler wellness with SmartyPants Kids Probiotic Complete.
