A Moms Guide to Thermometers

Why are there so many different types of thermometers? No, seriously. There is. There are ear (tympanic), forehead (temporal), or multi-use thermometers (for oral, rectal, or digital – but make sure to buy a separate one for rectal… 🙂). Is one better than the other? Are some more accurate? Lets take a look at the […]

The 411 On White Noise and Baby Sleep

I honestly never thought a lot about white noise before having a baby. I have always been a pretty heavy sleeper who never really struggled to fall asleep, so sleep aids weren’t something I’d put much thought into. When I saw a ton of people recommending white noise machines as a must have item for […]

Maggie’s Picks: Bath Time

I don’t know about your babies, but in this house we love baths. I loved them when I was pregnant (still do but in pregnancy I was taking a bath almost daily in third trimester) and Maggie has pretty much loved them since she was a newborn. A bath is often one of those first […]

Unfortunately, I do not have 120$+ to spend on toys every 2 months and I have yet to find something reasonable/affordable in […]

Our Most Used Items From Our Amazon Baby Registry

If you’ve read any of my product recommendation lists before, you know I hate using the term “essential” simply because I think that what I might deem essential for me, may not be essential for you. That’s why I always use “faves” – because these are my favourite items, and ones I got the most […]

Maggie’s Beach Bag Faves For 0-6 Months!

I don’t love using the word “essential” when it’s not actually something that is necessary – you can take a baby to the beach basically with just a towel. They can go in the water naked, you really don’t even require swim diapers if you don’t want. “Needs” and “wants” are so different for every […]
