How to Feed a Picky Eater

How to Feed a Picky Eater

This post has been sponsored by Go & Grow by Similac®. As a baby, Hudson was the BEST eater!  I mean he’d eat any and everything I put in front of him.  He LOVED broccoli, for crying out loud.  Then he hit two years old and it all went down the drain.  Vegetables were “yucky”, […]

Must Follow Mommy Bloggers

Must Follow Mommy Bloggers

  Let me preface this by saying I strongly dislike the term “mommy blogger”.  Once you look at the amazing women I’m about to introduce you to, you’ll understand why.  We blog about so much more than motherhood!  I’d really like to change the title to “badass bloggers who are also mothers” but I think […]

Sleep Training Tips: What You Need

how-to sleep train baby - Sleep Training Tips: What You Need by popular Atlanta lifestyle blogger Happily Hughes

We all need sleep.  I’m one of those who needs it more than most.  If I don’t get a good solid 4 hours at least it’s end game for me.  Seriously, I can’t function.  With Hudson it wasn’t a problem.  He slept through the night at 6 weeks and never looked back.  Henley, on the […]

Figure 8 Maternity Nursing Wear

Figure 8 Maternity Nursing Wear

Just like I enjoyed pregnancy fashion, I am having a grand ol’ time finding fun nursing wear.  When I had Hudson there DEFINITELY weren’t this many cute options!  I feel like most of the shirts were big billowy things that made me look 10-15 pounds heavier.  Nowadays there are so many fun options!  A company […]

LÍLLÉbaby Review and a Giveaway

Lillebaby Carrier Review

I never used a carrier with Hudson.  I bought a couple but just preferred carrying him around in my arms.  With two kids that’s just not possible.  Plus, I never realized how much easier life is with a baby carrier!  I’ve had the opportunity to try many different brands and I absolutely love the LÍLLÉbaby!  I love […]

My little love is one month old!!  If time flys with the first child, it’s at warp speed with the second!  I swear I just gave birth to her yesterday.  She is such an alert and snuggly baby.  She certainly sleeps less than her brother did, and wants to be laying on my chest or […]

Bottle Feeding a Breastfed Baby

Bottle Feeding a Breastfed Baby

Bottle feeding a breastfed baby can be a whole new exercise in frustration.  They can absolutely refuse to take a bottle, and I’m sure you’ve heard many moms complain about this exact thing.  For Henley we had to try lots of different bottles before we found one or two that would actually work.  One of the […]

Breastfeeding Essentials with buybuy BABY

Breastfeeding Essentials

My breastfeeding essentials!  So let me preface this by saying: I had a very hard time breastfeeding Hudson.  Because of the trauma I experienced with his birth, my milk supply ran out at around 6 weeks.  And it was six weeks of fighting tooth and nail to make it work.  Hudson couldn’t latch, I constantly […]

Breastfeeding Must-Haves: Boob Butter

Breastfeeding Must-Have Boob Butter

As discussed in yesterday’s Postpartum SUCKS post, I had a HARD time with breastfeeding.  My boobs were so engorged I looked like a science fiction pornstar, and my nipples were cracked and bleeding from bad latches.  Those first few days the pain almost brought me to my knees.  My one saving grace was a fantastic nipple […]
