​Can a baby get a sore throat? The answer is yes, they can. Babies can get a sore or red throat, but can’t tell you it hurts.

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a mom more than anything. Before settling down, I yearned for a stable relationship, a cozy home, and a big family. For the chance to nurture, raise, and love my babies. While I never lost faith in that dream, I certainly questioned what the future had in store at times. If I could return to my pre-motherhood days, I’d encourage myself to enjoy the journey and trust in the process. Even more, I’d plead with the woman I was before I had kids to have compassion and grace for myself. To the Woman I Was Before I Had Kids This one’s for you, my former ..read more

Our babies seem to grow up in the blink of an eye. One day, they are a tiny, snuggly little infant relying on us for everything, and then suddenly, they turn into a big kid who can navigate the world independently.

Many parents want to keep a close eye on or monitor their child’s social-emotional development to ensure they are on track. Some key milestones are easy to observe, like watching your child learn to roll over and then building on this skill until they crawl and eventually walk. Other ar ..read more

When I sat down to think about the best 3-year-old toys my daughter Adley would like, it didn’t take me long to come up with a long list. There are some usual suspects you will likely recognize.

Package of toilet paper? We turned it into a fort and got more than an hour of entertainment. When playing with a toddler, your imagination is the only thing you are limited by. It allows for countless ad ..read more

After having my two kids, I wasn’t as prepared for the amount of hair loss I would experience.
