Getting Fit – Good For You & Baby!

Getting Fit – Good For You & Baby!

While I was pregnant, I walked nearly every day after dinner. It was a great way for me to get exercise even as Rissa developed in the womb, making my belly expand. After having her at the end of October, it didn't take long before we were pretty much holed up in the house due to winter. Now that it's nice again, we are enjoying walks. It's not easy to get in shape after baby comes. Sure, you are busy, but it's not the same as a cardio workout. It can be difficult to schedule that kind of time in. Cryo-Cell knows that it is hard for moms to find time to exercise after baby's arrival.

Fluff Brain

I used to have a sharp memory. Then I got pregnant. I then had pregnancy brain.  After giving birth, I developed mommy brain. Now, I occasionally suffer from fluff brain. What’s fluff brain? It’s forgetting crucial steps and/or parts while using cloth diapers. For...

Trying to Organize My #ClothDiapers ~ Storage Caddy Review from Baby Bedding Zone

No More Plate Throwing! Boon Inc Saucer Review

Rissa has started solids, so that means she needs her own baby sized dishes!  Okay, so I don’t always give her dishes.  Often let her just eat off her tray, but that requires a lot more clean up between...
