AD As a first-time mom it took me months to even think of developing a nighttime routine for McKenna. I thought I could just lay her in her bassinet at bedtime and she would magically fall asleep. If I could only redo one thing from her first year I would definitely incorporate a bedtime routine from the start. Since we've started using this tried and true nighttime routine McKenna falls asleep faster and stays asleep longer! Of course, a tried and true nighttime routine isn't complete without using tried and true gentle products from JOHNSON'S®! #GetJohnsonsBaby #ChooseGentle #babybedtimeroutine #nighttimeroutine #babynighttimeroutine @Target @JohnsonsBaby

Why Baby's Gut Health Matters

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

This post is sponsored by Evivo but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

It's been a while since our last chat about  Evivo. We didn't get a chance to fully reap the benefits of our first box of Evivo probiotics thanks to our fridge quitting on us. I'm so glad we were able get a second chance at improving her gut health. As I mentioned in my previous Evivo post the first 6 months of a baby's life are critical for immune and metabolic development.  Even though McKenna just turned 1 we're still using Evivo to help get rid of her eczema and reduce the bad bacteria in her gut. #Evivo #SmartAsAMother @EvivoHealth #AD

Did you know 9 out of 10 babies are missing the good bacteria needed to protect their gut? The good bacteria, B. infantis, has disappeared over generations and babies in the U.S. no longer receive B. infantis at birth due to the unintended consequences of modern medical practices like C-sections, antibiotics, and formula feeding.

Preparing for Christmas in July with Basic Invite

It's no secret that I love taking photos of McKenna and her 1st birthday cake smash photos were no exception. If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don't, what are you doing?!) you've probably already seen a few of these pictures. I thought I would share a few more here and how I plan on using these photos for our photo holiday cards with Basic Invite. Even though its July it's never too late to get started on this year's Christmas cards using these gorgeous pics!

What I Wish I Packed in Our Hospital Bags

Wednesday, July 18, 2018

This time last year I was on day 2 of labor after being induced to give birth to McKenna. Time has really flown by since then! I only found out I was being induced a few days before, so I was beyond nervous and not at all prepared. I had hospital bags packed for the baby and I weeks earlier (I didn't even get around to packing one for my boyfriend!), but I still forgot a few things. A year later and I'm still thinking of things that would have made a great addition to our hospital bags!

Tomorrow marks one year since I was induced to give birth to McKenna. I only found out I was being induced a few days before, so I was beyond nervous and not at all prepared. I had hospital bags packed for the baby and I weeks earlier (I didn't even get around to packing one for my boyfriend!), but I still forgot a few things.
