Hi friends! It’s Tamara here! Something you may not know about me is that before I became a Mother, I was a Nanny!

In my 12 years in the Childcare Profession I cared for children varying in age from 0-9 years, with the majority of my charges were between the ages of 0-4 years old. So it goes without saying that I have helped to potty train my fair share of young children.  I am here today to share my best Potty Training Tips with you!

Hey y’all! It’s Jess again and I’m here to talk about something near and dear to my heart: breastfeeding.

Let’s clear up one thing

Breastfeeding has come a long way. It isn’t just baby to breast anymore. I’m talking about anyone who feeds their baby human milk whether it be via donor milk, pumping, or nursing.

As soon as my daughter turned 1, everyone had an opinion about getting her off the breast. My favorites were “she doesn’t get anything from your milk anymore,” “she doesn’t need it,” “she’s too old for it now.”

My daughter still breastfeeds on demand. Wakes up about 3-8 times (it varies greatly night to night) to nurse and I am comfortable with that. We have no plans of stopping anytime soon.  

Why do people always seem to have an opinion on feeding children?

Hey y’all! Jess here!

Last week Ariel wrote an AMAZING article about traditional weaning for your babies. I’m going to share something a little different- baby led weaning.

Before I begin, I will reiterate what Ariel stated. Every baby is different, and every family is different. I urge you to take all the information but also do your own research and consult your pediatrician to find what will be the best fit for your family.  

What does it even mean?

If you’ve never heard of baby led weaning before, you are probably thinking what in the heck is that? Don’t worry! I’ve got your back! Read More
