7 Great Books for Preparing a Toddler for a New Sibling

My first daughter was 13 months old when my husband and I learned that we were expecting,. Along with feelings of joy and happiness, we were nervous wrecks.

Space and Wallet Saving Alternatives to High Chairs

Not Your Grandma’s Swing

Like most new parents, I added a swing to my baby registry as a first-time mom because I thought it would be the perfect addition to ensure that I could, in spite of becoming a mom, carry on with my “normal” life. Before even meeting my baby, I got a swing at eight months pregnant. […]


Tips for Packing One Diaper Bag for Two Small Kids
