I Found The Best Nursing Pillow for Plus Size Mamas!

It’s really no secret that I’m not *gasp* skinny. The only time I ever was thin was when I was a preschooler. Even in high school I was curvier even if I wasn’t actually fat like I thought at the time. It can be very frustrating to be a bigger woman in our

This Time I’m Cloth Diapering a Newborn! #clothdiapers

Finding the Balance of Being Soft and Strong as a Mom

When I was little I distinctly remember thinking I wouldn’t do this, that or the other thing the way my parents did. I’d understand my kids better! I’d be the best mother in the world because I wouldn’t have to yell or punish them and they’d never be mad at me over

Pregnancy Journal: 28 Weeks

The baby bump is becoming more obvious. And in the way. I can’t tell you how many times a day I run into something with it! I’ve only gained a pound and a half, but baby boy weighs around 2lbs according to recent ultrasound measurements. With my daughter I gained a total
