The New Mama's Guide To Breastfeeding (50 Resources & FREE Checklist!)

       I definitely want to start making these New Mama's Guides a regular thing on the blog. As a new mom, there was so much information I was gathering AFTER the fact - I wish I would have had a comprehensive guideline to refer back to, before I was in the midst of the struggle, frantically researching online. I am obviously a new mom with only one child, so needless to say I don't know EVERY thing or have EVERY resource. But I wanted to create these in hopes of providing some helpful information to other new moms who might be feeling lost or unsure. The New Mama's Guide to Breastfeeding includes a list of 40+ online breastfeeding resources of all types (including anecdotal posts by other moms), plus a checklist of items that you'll want to have on hand from the get-go.

Weekly Meal Plan 2/19 - 2/25

weekly meal plan february


      I took a little break from the weekly meal plan last week & asked you guys on Instagram if you'd rather read the weekly meal plan posts on the blog, or have them directly delivered to your inbox. The majority of you said you'd rather read them on the blog, so here it is! Not going to lie, I worry that these posts are redundant, so I try to spruce them up by adding in some different topics here and there - next month I have a series planned focusing on weekly meal plans for different budgets. So, stay tuned for that! Also, for those of you that DO wish you had something delivered right to your inbox, click the link in the sidebar to sign up for my newsletter! It's so much more than an RSS feed...I have so many fun & exclusive things to share only with my subscribers, you don't want to miss out.

How To Survive Your 9-5 As A Work At Home Mom #wahm #homeoffice 

     A while back, a reader requested I do a "day in the life" type post about what I do on an average day as a work-at-home mom. As most of you probably know, blogging is not a full-time gig for me - more like my favorite hobby! I work 30 hours/week from home while also being Ezra's sole caretaker during that time. Today I wanted to walk through my day with you, and share some of my organizational and time management tips for balancing work life and mom life at the same time.
