To moms like me, seeing women complain about motherhood can be frustrating. Are their husbands home for dinner? Can they help with bath time?

I'm going to start with this...Do. Not. Rush. It. Also, what works for one child may not work for others. Many children are not developmentally ready to begin potty training until the age of 2. Their brains have a hard time identifying when they need to go potty until they are actually going. This is… Continue reading no stress potty training
Finding a good monitor for my kids was really important to me. Summer Infant has never let me down, but this new monitor is the best one I've had from them.

I have tried probably all of the cups out there and I have finally found one that DOESN'T leak. I am not making this up. Even… Continue reading Nuby Cup Review
