I am a back sleeper and the only way I can get comfortable during the later weeks of pregnancy is by using a high quality pregnancy pillow, specifically the Snoogle. I like to prop it right behind my back, and place the top and bottom parts of the “C” under my head and between my […]
Emily Siegel was a guest on Episode 40 of the Growing Our Family Parenting Podcast. I like to end each episode with a product recommendation from my guests for something that they personally LOVED during the first few years of parenting. Emily recommended the Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat. My posts may contain affiliate links, […]
The Best Sound Machine for Babies! You might have been told once or twice (or 1,000 times) how amazing white noise is for sleeping babies. It seems like there is almost an infinite number of white noise machines out there, and if you’re like me, you might find yourself wondering which one is the best? […]

Starting at the new year, we will no longer be able to send regular bottles to daycare with my son. Once he moves up to the 12-18 month classroom, all milk, water, or juice has to be sent in a sippy cup. This started a mass search to find a sippy cup. As you might […]
The Jia and Jumbo swaddle blankets are my favorite out of the 5-6 different brands we own. My son is no longer swaddled at night, but I wish I had these when he was. Our biggest problem with some of the other blankets was that they are not big enough to get a really tight […]
As we head into fall, now is the perfect time to try out a pair of compression socks with your cute fall boots. As you get further along in pregnancy, most women experience edema (or swelling) in parts of their body. You should chat with your doctor about it, but if this is normal swelling […]
