When my husband and I decided to move forward and add a fourth child to our family, we knew it wasn't going to be easy. We had thought long and hard about the decision, taking a year before we felt comfortable with the stress that comes with trying to conceive. With our history of miscarriage, we thought we understood how difficult the process ...

I love baby names. It's one of my favorite first-things to do during pregnancy, and often I have a name chosen for my next baby before I am even pregnant. I have a love for the unusual names and especially the names that have some sort of meaning to the parents. I take into consideration ...

Toddlers love to push our buttons. They're at that perfect age where they want to do what they want when they want, but they don't really have the communication skills or brainstorming abilities to make their wishes known. ...

It's a lot to do, but did you know that you don't have ...

As your pregnant body begins to take shape and your due date draws closer, you'll probably find yourself wondering what labor and contractions are going to feel like.

Breastfeeding, while natural, is not as easy as one may think. Sure, breasts are made to feed babies, and our babies are made to feed, but when it comes to getting the hang of it all and getting through the tough beginnings, it's far from easy. I was able to breastfeed my third child until just before her third birthday and currently going ...

Breastfeeding has been one of my favorite moments in parenting for many reasons. It has always been a desire of mine to feel the close bond that others talk about throughout breastfeeding and when I made it a big goal of mine to breastfeed my 3rd child until she self-weaned – something I was unable ...

I have a confession for you: I am not really a big fan of summer. I know, this season seems to be the favorite for so many, but heat and sun are not my friend. There are a lot of activities and happenings that make the summer fun, but if we could have spring-type weather with the summer fun, I'd be one happy lady. ...
