For today’s installment of Real Mom Talk, we’re trying something new. Today will be the voices of real moms, sharing their tips and experience. We’ve all had rough, difficult or just plain bad days. It seems that once you add another life into the mix, the chances of things not going as planned seem to multiply exponentially. So what do you do when you recognize things aren’t going so well and how do you change it?   Yesterday, we asked our Facebook fans: Did your mother ever tell you “Turn that frown upside down”? How do you turn around a

How to Make New Friends
April 27, 2011 5:03 am | by

“Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other’s gold.” – Author unknown Life is full of changes, and arguably, none is more life altering than having a baby. It can be difficult if your friends aren’t having babies at the same time you are. Maybe their children are older, maybe you are the first within your social circle to have children. You may have found, like I have, that it’s difficult to have social outings, especially with those who don’t have similarly aged children. So, if you need new friends that are parents, how do

Postpartum Depression
October 27, 2010 2:11 pm | by

This week, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended that pediatricians screen mothers of newborns for postpartum depression. According to the AAP, “Estimated rates of depression among pregnant and postpartum women can range between 5 percent and 25 percent.”   Cotton Babies currently has more than 10,000 fans on our Facebook page.

Creating a Yes Environment
April 29, 2008 10:29 pm | by

We’ve all heard it. The child yelling “No!” at the top of their lungs. It often seems like that is the first word that children learn to use on a regular basis. I hear it in restaurants, in stores, in church, and at the park. Children love to use that word to separate themselves as individuals. But it doesn’t have to be something you hear day in and day out in your own home, from your own child.
