  • Orgasms and Pregnancy

    Gone are the days when sex was a taboo topic of discussion.  The orgasm has been blogged about and (hopefully) experienced by women everywhere, but a pregnant woman?  So many adults refuse to discuss the sex life of a pregnant woman. Continue reading

  • The 12 Worst Ingredients In Your Toddler’s Foods

    Everyone has heard of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ – You know, the list of 12 foods that you should be avoiding unless they are organic.  But did you know that there are specific ingredients we need to be looking out for?  Common sense tells us that the ingredient labels should be easy to read (containing actual foods), but our wallets and cravings steer us directly toward the opposite.  We like to say ‘Everything in Moderation’ but the reality is that we are just addicted to it all.  What’s worse? Our children are following in our footsteps. Continue reading

  • How To Detox A Child From The Holidays

    There is no denying just how irregular the holiday season is for children.  There is sugar served by the bowl-full, grandparents and extended family behind every door, and interrupted schedules with crazy sleep hours.  The immune systems are sent into overdrive as the body intakes ample amounts of non-nutrient dense foods, less sleep, and increased germ exposure.  You combine this with ample gift-giving and increased screen time and your child may be in need of a detox.

  • Why Rear Facing Matters: Car Seat Safety

    Hi there! It’s me, your friendly know-it-all mom-friend about to jump up on her soap box (again).  Hey, we all have our platforms; I just happen to have a few of them. <Understatement of the year>

    I want to start this article off with a bit of science.  You see, I typically just start ranting passionately about car seat safety, and for most uninformed mothers, that backfires rather quickly.  They tend to think I’m just on a high-horse and become utterly defensive, believing me to be judging them. This couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Most mothers who have researched about car seat safety will all agree that sharing this information comes from a place of love – a love for their own children, your children, and all children.  You see, a simple unknown mistake of improper installation, buckle placement, or premature forward facing of a car seat can end with life-long injury or death to the child.

  • Winter Coats and Car Seats Do NOT Mix

    It’s cold outside, and the car is no warm shelter from the temperature before it is running for about 10 minutes.  It is easy to think that there is nothing wrong with bundling a baby or toddler up in their winter gear before bucking them into the car seat.  Perhaps you even think that is the exact right thing to do.  You are, after all, keeping them warm – and it is much easier than undressing them before buckling and then redressing them when you arrive at your destination… Continue reading

  • Pregnancy Leads to Long-Lasting Changes in the Mother’s Brain

    We go from “normal” to “Mommy Brain” in 9 months, but it seems to only be a joke that most women blame for leaving their keys in the freezer.  We are not crazy!  Mothers across the worlds can rejoice because science has now proven that we are not making it all up. Continue reading
