    6 Moments I Wish Never Happened During The Newborn Stage (Part 2)

    (Read the first part of this article HERE.) Like every other mom, I would like to relive a lot of moments during that crazy yet very precious time. Then again, I would definitely wish for my time machine to skip a few moments during my baby’s newborn stage. Heck, I wouldn’t mind if they were erased, even. You know what I mean, moms. There are those times when you simply wish things happened differently, as they didn’t quite live up to […]

    6 Moments I Wish Never Happened During The Newborn Stage (Part 1)

    “They grow up fast,” they all say, and I couldn’t agree more. I’m a stay-at-home mom to my toddler and I feel like his baby stage flew by too fast, despite being with him almost every minute of his life. If I could have my way, like a gazillion other moms, I would like to relive a lot of moments during that crazy yet very precious time. Then again, there are also those moments that I wish my time machine […]

  • Real Parents’ Most Embarrassing Boo-Boos While Caring For A Newborn (Part 2)

    (Check out the first part of this article HERE.) The truth is, caring for a newborn is hard, add the fact that being a parent turned your entire life around in one quick, dizzying motion. And perhaps what makes it a lot more difficult is that having a baby hardly comes with operating instructions, so any new parent is bound to stumble and encounter terribly embarrassing and horrific humps on an almost daily basis. From projectile vomiting to forgetting the kid […]

    Real Parents’ Most Embarrassing Boo-Boos While Caring For A Newborn (Part 1)

    I may be feeling a little tired from running after a toddler now, but I can honestly say that I’ve gotten a whole lot better at this whole parenting thing (so has my husband, who was admittedly an even bigger baby during the time our son was born). I’m sure you feel the same way and can even relate to how I sometimes look at new parents with a little pity for what they’re surely going through. The truth is, […]

    11 Useful Toys For A Baby’s First Year Of Life (Part 2)

    (Read the first part of this article HERE.) As a full-time mother, I now realize I was kind of wrong about my plan to only get “educational” toys for my baby. The thing is, every toy can be somehow educational and not all of them are as effective as they claim to be. And in most cases, I’ve learned from real moms and research articles, that they’re really usually not. If you’re a parent looking for toys that won’t prove to be such […]

    11 Useful Toys For A Baby’s First Year Of Life (Part 1)

    Toys, toys and more toys. When I was younger, I admit we had all sorts of them. My parents had an entire room filled with them and now years later, I admit I can’t even remember a single one that was in there. I knew it was wrong to spoil me with toys. I grew up determined to only get my future child more “educational” toys–only a few in total, in order for him or her to learn about valuing things […]

    5 Things To Keep In Mind When Getting A Gift For A Baby’s 1st Birthday

    Surprise! You’ve gotten an invitation to a close friend’s kid’s 1st birthday party. You’re probably excited and committed to go, and yet there’s one problem: What do you get the kid? Many moms resort to buying clothes because they’re the easier choice, but then you realize that the child will already probably be getting a whole pile of clothes from his family members alone and you just want to get something that the child could actually enjoy and play with—like […]

    5 Oral Care Tips For Healthy Baby Teeth

    Proper dental care starts as early as under one year. This might come as a surprise for some parents, especially those who don’t know how important milk teeth are. To put it simply, baby teeth and healthy gums have a lot to do with the spacing between permanent teeth that come out later on during childhood, so caring for baby teeth is crucial for having healthy and (hopefully) better aligned permanent teeth. Having a good set of teeth is actually pretty easy. […]

    7 Annoying Mother And Child Breastfeeding Habits (Part 2)

    Breastfeeding is truly a wonderful thing that is shared between a mother and child. As a mother of a 14-month-old, I can definitely agree with all the complimentary descriptions and relate with many sentimental experiences that come with nursing. But as with all good things, there are also the quite annoying downsides, many of which I wish didn’t exist but wouldn’t necessarily say ruins the experience in any way. If anything, it only adds to the entire short-lived experience that makes the early childhood […]
