5 Tips for a Cool & Calm Teething Baby

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). Everyone has an opinion about what you should do too, but safety information is updated so frequently that you can’t always do what your friend, aunt or sister did. 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

Holiday Gifts for Babies Ages 6-12 Months

Baby/ Christmas/ Home Page

It’s amazing how much babies change from birth to their first birthday, not just in the full year, but with each month! So what might be a great gift for a newborn or 2-month-old isn’t really the best fit for babies ages 6-12 months who are already crawling and possibly toddling around. At this age, the best gifts for babies foster security and development as they become their own little independent person.

Bohemian Wilderness Themed Baby & Toddler Shared Room

Baby/ Home/ Home Page/ Kiddos/ Tot


While nesting in preparation for Nora’s Birth, I decided to convert my office into a shared room for Nora and River. Though it’s a fairly small room, the long layout allows each kiddo to have their own side, as well as a shared space to play in. River’s side of the room is all about adventure in the mountain wilderness while Nora’s side of the room is airy bohemian florals. It really came together nicely and is one of my favorite rooms in the house.

Organizing the heaps of baby clothes you inevitably get from friends and family is one of the bigger pre-baby chores. I advise against washing everything you’re given but am a huge fan of hanging up what you have by size so that you can see what’s available and which sizes you’ll need more of. To do this, you’ll need some great clothing dividers!

3 things About Cloth Diapering You Need to Know

Baby/ Home Page/ Kiddos/ Pregnancy


This cloth diapering post is sponsored by P&G and Tide but all opinions are honest and my own.

Have you ever thought about trying cloth diapers? I was determined to cloth diaper when I had my first baby and even tried a cloth diaper delivery service! But with little information and a high delivery bill, my time with cloth diapers didn’t last very long. With my second kiddo, I had more information about the types of cloth diapers and how to clean them myself so I’ve learned a lot about cloth diapering and how to make it work for my family. Here are a few things about cloth diapering that I’ve learned over the years that you should know. Read more
