I’m four months pregnant with my third baby and my one-year-old daughter WILL.NOT.SLEEP. I’ve tried it all: diffusing essential oils and lavender baths, dark room, sound machine, magic merlin suit, sleep sack. It seems like no matter what I do, she still wakes up every 30-90 minutes ready to play, all night long. Multiple days of sleepless nights can quite literally drive you insane. Combine the lack of sleep with the pregnancy exhaustion and I feel like a walking zombie. I sleep-trained my son just fine and he’s a great sleeper. But my daughter is a force to be reckoned with and has decided she doesn’t need beauty sleep because she’s already beautiful. I decided to enlist the help of...
I still cannot believe I had TWINS roughly two months ago, but here I am knee-deep in diapers (I should also mention that I have a 2.5-year-old still in diapers) and bottles. Literally, there are diapers everywhere! And I keep buying more bottles because I feel like I’m constantly washing them. There have been days that noon rolls around, and I have yet to wash my face or brush my teeth. There’s definitely been at least one day where my husband came home from work and I was still wearing my pajamas from the night before and never even managed to put on a bra. One day he came home and asked me if I watered the ferns, and...
“Babies are a blessing” is a phrase that always rings true, but I have to say, especially true during a pandemic. As we approach the anniversary of the pandemic, we also start to celebrate the lives of all the babies born during these “unprecedented times,” as they say. And although there were some things we grieved about giving birth during the pandemic, like not seeing most friends and families up close, drive-by baby showers, and challenging hospital regulations, many mamas agree that there have been beautiful and precious things about giving birth in the past year, besides the obvious beauty and wonder of having a baby in general. Time slowed down Our pandemic baby is our third. I feel like generally...
Summer is quickly approaching and since I’ll be welcoming two new babes in the next four weeks, I’ve been trying to get as much done as possible in terms of scheduling summer camps and more importantly (in my humble opinion), swim lessons, for my big boys. When my first son was about a year old, we decided to enroll him in ISR or Infant Swim Resource lessons. Just to provide a little background information … ISR was founded in 1966 and since then, it has delivered more than 8,000,000 lessons to children worldwide. According to their website, ISR’s primary focus is to teach your child to become a productive swimmer or floater in any depth of water. They teach children...
Before my personal experience as a NICU mom, I knew other moms who had been through a NICU stay. My sister and sister-in-law had both been there. I visited my nephew in the NICU. I saw what was on the surface: they left the hospital without their baby, the strict NICU rules, scrubbing in. Still, I had no clue what they were experiencing on a personal level, at least not until I had my son at 24 weeks, weighing 1 lb. 11 oz. and 12 inches long. From September 1, 2017, to June 25, 2018, Junior was in the NICU in critical condition. One of the toughest parts of his 10-month stay was the fact that not a single person knew...
