One of the big stresses on the mind of a pregnant woman is how she's going to find time and energy to put together the nursery for her baby.

Colic is mean. And if you've never had to deal with the thick of it before, consider yourself lucky. I thought I was one of those lucky people who never had to deal with the crazy phase of a baby crying for apparently no reason. My three older kids, while not what I would call calm babies, weren't ones who would scream for hours at a time every ...

When I was pregnant with my youngest child, I was worried about how the newest member of the family was going to change the dynamic with my older children. I was not new to having a new baby in the family, but this was the first time there was such a big age gap. I worried. ...
