Baby/ Health/ Home Page

This post is sponsored by Baby Orajel™. All opinions are mine alone and should not be considered medical advice.

Teething is one of the scariest times for new and veteran parents — when you don’t know what to do or how to help your little one feel better and get some rest it can be exhausting (emotionally and physically).

There are a few useful ways to help baby stay cool & calm safely though, and I’m sharing my favorites! Seriously, we just used these to reduce teething pain while on baby’s first flight and for our ceremony to renew our vows and my little Nora was a cool happy baby the whole time! Read more

It really came together nicely and is one of my favorite rooms in the house.
