Is your baby breaking out of the swaddle? New moms need as much sleep as possible and studies show that when babies are swaddled they sleep much better. When my babies started breaking out of their swaddle I freaked out because they weren’t sleeping as well. This is when I learned how to double swaddle.
Congratulations! There is a new baby in the family. Everyone is thrilled and even your first-born is showing signs of loving the new baby. You are doing everything to prevent new sibling resentment and it seems to be working until you hear “Why do we always have to do everything for the baby?”.
I was at a park one day with several friends and heard a mother tell her son, “Come on, Brian, we need to leave so I can get Katie home for a nap.” When I saw that kids face when he looked at his little sister I knew exactly what was going on in his little head….resentment. I made it my mission to avoid those looks from my sons as much as possible.

Are you one of the millions of consumers that makes most of your purchases online? I sure am. I do my best to avoid stores and love being able to do most of my gift shopping from my couch while watching a show. What makes this great is that now most stores offer free shipping.
If I make a purchase and I notice the store does not offer free shipping I go to Groupon Coupons for coupon codes. They have hundreds of stores that have coupon codes to save you money or offer free shipping on your orders.
Panic! The pacifier just fell on the gross floor and it is our only one!
Haven’t we all been in this same situation? Well, lucky for us there are now 5 different ways to sterilize a pacifier without boiling water. I had thought there were only 2, boil and microwave. I recently learned about some new products that are fantastic for when you are on-the-go and I just had to share them with you.
If you have a soccer lover to buy for than I have a great list of gift ideas. All 3 of my kids play the sport so you can imagine we spend our weekends at multiple games.
This list will make boys and girls shout for joy when they open their gift. I have ordered a bunch for my own kids.
Have you noticed how many babies now wear helmets to fix their flat heads? We all want our babies to avoid the whole hassle of those helmets. I have had 3 babies with perfectly round heads and my sister used these same tips and she has 3 kids that all avoided having flat head syndrome. (Did you know there is an official name for it? I didn’t.) Here are our 3 easy tips to keep your baby’s head from getting flat in the back.

My kids have way too many toys. It is getting ridiculous and they don’t even play with half of them. They are also getting a little bit older where they aren’t interested in as many toys. I am making the change this year to give the gift of experiences.
Just think…no clutter, no mess to clean up and something your child will remember. As you know by now, I love sharing fun tips I discover. Here’s another for you: A quick glance at the Groupon site leads to a ton of great gift ideas. The great thing is how much money I save with their discount versus purchasing the tickets through the normal ticket office.
Parenting can be such a roller coaster. One minute you are enjoying your kids having a great time and then the smallest thing triggers a fight and….great moment is over! When I find myself super frustrated with my kids and feeling like our family life is out of control is when I know it is time to read another parenting book. I need the best books on parenting on my nightstand.
Learning a new tip to try out in our house can sometimes help smooth out the latest difficult situation. Such as getting out the door on time, sibling rivalry or picky eating. I feel like when I am trying out a new tip from a book I have a glimmer of hope that things are going to get better. The great thing is that usually they do! Every new tip I put into my parenting toolbox is helping my family.

Don’t you love when you can get most of the presents done in one shopping trip? Here is the best idea I have seen for this year’s Christmas gifts for the whole family. Personalized fleece pullovers from NYFifth Apparel !
You can have each person’s initials embroidered onto them but I think it would be even more exciting and fun to come up with a family logo or crest. Everyone could have the same fun logo. You can design it on your computer and just send them the file. My husband has come up with this as an idea for us.
I am always needing a fleece for running around town and to the soccer fields. I live in my fleece and jeans during these soccer days. It is a great price point for a personalized gift for everyone. They have a hooded option too for my boys since they must have a “cool” hoodie.
My husband would want the Nike Golf version. NYFifth has Nike Golf and Adidas too for those who like a certain brand and want to spend a little more money.
You can purchase the blank apparel at wholesale prices and then add the customization (silk screening or embroidery) for a low competitive price.
There are so many ways to use these for more than Christmas gifts. They can be great for small businesses and sports teams to have as uniforms. My boy’s soccer team also does an indoor season during the winter and we have to come up with our own shirts. Having a cool emblem that we design will be awesome.
Like it. Pin it!
Isn’t Thanksgiving the best holiday? No expectations other than sitting around visiting with friends and family. We have tried to make it all about bonding with family by starting some fun family Thanksgiving traditions.
Thanksgiving is my favorite especially because it isn’t about gifts. It is about being with the people we love and eating some delicious food. My mom and aunt cook us a delicious meal while the rest of the extended family play on the beach. The other nights during our weekend together, the rest of the families all take turns cooking.
