Babywearing with Multiple Children
May 1, 2017 7:40 am | by
Babywearing with multiple children - Simplify your big family life!

To many parents, the idea of having more children than hands strikes fear into their hearts. How do I hold the baby? What if they run off in a public place? How will I ever get anything done again? Never fear – parents have been working, traveling, and living with multiple children for thousands of years. And across the span of cultures and times, there has been one common strategy that helps moms and dads stay sane: babywearing. To “wear” a baby simply means to carry him or her on your person by the means of some sort of carrier.

Real Mom Talk: How We Will Introduce Baby #3
July 27, 2015 7:28 pm | by

It’s been over three years since there has been a new baby in the house. In a little over three months, baby #3 will born! I would be lying if I didn’t say that I’m nervous to bring a tiny human into our home again. We’ll be starting all over — breastfeeding, cloth diapers, baby wearing. Literally everything. But the thing I’m actually most worried about is how the girls will take to this new family member. Aubrey was only 18 months old when her sister arrived, so it didn’t really change anything. We weren’t into a groove or anything yet for her life

Adding a new child or additional children to our family has stretched us in a lot of ways, but primarily financially. One of the biggest expenses we all face is clothing. Today I’d like to share a few ways we’ve saved on clothing for our kids in the past few years. Say “yes” to hand-me-downs When you first find out the gender of your baby, whether that is before birth or after, you’ll probably get offers from family and friends to pass on their same-gendered children’s outgrown clothing. It’s easy to brush these offers off, thinking that you want to

Cloth Diapering Baby #2

Cloth Diaper Creams

I’m a few months into this mom-of-two gig, and I feel like I’m starting to know what I’m doing. (Well, as much as any of us know what we’re doing.) I went into this knowing I’d cloth diaper Luke from the start, and would continue to cloth diaper Vicki until she’s potty trained. I seriously underestimated the amount of diaper laundry I would have. When Vicki was a newborn, we rented 24 newborn diapers because we weren’t sure if we would stick with cloth diapering. This time around, we purchased our newborn diapers so we would have them for future

Family Camping
June 27, 2012 2:23 pm | by

This week is National Camping Week and to celebrate, our family went camping last weekend for the first time since we’ve become parents. I love being outdoors and since my husband and I both work in tech-related fields, it’s very difficult for us to completely disconnect and take a break as long as there is cell service available. There’s nothing quite like going deep into the woods to render your smartphone useless. At first, our kids seemed to be annoyed at the amount of effort required to do anything, especially the hike to the outhouse. There was a great deal

Going From One Child to Two
May 23, 2012 9:37 am | by

Being pregnant with your second child brings up a lot of worries for some moms- Will I love this baby as much as I love my first? Will they get along? Is this the best or worst idea I’ve ever had? How will I figure out which kid to respond to first? Will it be more than I can handle? Let me first assure you that it most likely won’t be more than you can handle. Here’s a secret about the second time around- it’s much easier. It’s not the first time you’re changing your baby’s diaper. It’s not the
