Maternity and Nursing Fashion - Through a Monthly Rental Service Called Bella Gravida

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Bella Gravida
I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Being pregnant is exciting for so many reasons, but man is it hard to find clothing to not only flatters you, but also fits a belly with a bump!  I just learned about an AWESOME new website called Bella Gravida which allows you to rent maternity wardrobe.

That's amazing right?

I mean, even if I have another baby in a few years, who's to say that I'll even be pregnant during the same seasons? Some of my maternity wardrobe might not even work at all.

Play Stow and Go Playskool Toys Review - Toddler and Baby Toys

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Playskool. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Traveling with two kids two and under takes a lot of work and planning. There are diapers, outfits, change of outfits, pajamas, special soap, sleeping arrangements, snacks, and toys. But we were able to save a ton of space in our car in a recent trip to Maine, thanks to some pretty cool new toys.

Fall Activities in Rhode Island That You Can Do With a Toddler

I've heard it said time and time again, that Fall is the best season to be in Rhode Island. Most would think that Summer would reign supreme in the Ocean State, but if you want to really spend some time in the outdoors, and you don't like the sweltering heat, then autumn is truly the time to be in Little Rhody.

I've compiled some of my favorite activities to do in Rhode Island - especially if you have kids, babies, or a toddler. But mind you, I enjoyed all of these fun things before I even had children - so really the list is universal!

How to Soothe A Baby With Colic - 10 Steps to Helping A Colicky Baby

This blog post about soothing a crying baby with colic has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions and advice are mine alone. #MyLittleRemedies #CollectiveBias
I have two adorable lovely children. They are my sun and moon. (Thank you Daenerys Targaryen) There is nothing better in this world than knowing that they are happy and healthy.

But as great as they can be, there is nothing worse than hearing them cry, and knowing that there is very little that I can do to stop it.  In fact, it's terrible.  Nope, it's torture.  I wouldn't be surprised if they had the sounds of babies crying playing on a constant loop at Guantanamo during it's heyday - that's how awful it is.

Here's the rub though - when your kid has colic, there really is NOTHING you can do to fix it.  Your kid will cry, and cry, and cry, and CRY for hours on end.  You will be sleepless.  You will be tired. You might even fall into depression.  Your only option is to just wait and let it sort itself out. Only time fixes colic. But there are things you can do to help ease the crying, and at least soothe your colicky baby.  My new go-to solution is to use the brand new Little Remedies® Colic Relief and Gas Relief drops from Target.  But more on that in a bit....

Happy 150th Birthday, Carter's !

I participated in a Blog Blast Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s
I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

They say it's your birthday --- okay so it may not be YOUR birthday, and it surely isn't MY birthday (mine's cinco de mayo!) but it is CARTER'S birthday. And I'm not talking about a person named Carter, I'm talking about one of my most favorite brands of baby and kid's clothing - Carter's. 

It's actually the company's 150th birthday this year, and to celebrate, Carter's is hosting a 150th Birthday Sweepstakes where 150 winners will be selected to win two $150 Carter's Gift Cards.
