    Gut Check! Why I love probiotics for my babies!

    This post is sponsored by Evivo but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Is your baby’s gut healthy? How do you know? Ever wondered how you could easily tell if your baby’s gut was suffering? Since our babies can’t express themselves in words, we are left playing the guessing game or looking for certain signs. Thankfully there is a simple 3-Question Baby Gut Check Quiz you can take that will help you identify whether or not your baby is one of the 9 out of 10 infants missing B. infantitis (the good bacteria in your baby’s gut) Question 1: Were you OR your baby born via C-section?…

    Snack Time with Quinn

    This post is sponsored by Quinn Snacks but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Through a series of elimination diets for myself and my eldest daughter, we discovered that gluten was not on our list of “friendly food” items. Not kidding, it took over a year to figure out that gluten, and also too much pasteurized dairy products, were at the root of my daughters horrible case of eczema. And when I mean horrible, I mean, whole body eczema. Not only did she have discolored rough patches in all of the “typical” locations eczema tends to appear, her whole body felt like sandpaper. She had patches on her…

    Your Child’s Feeding Questions – ANSWERED!

    This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Ever wish parenting came with a user manual? Yep, me too. Sometimes I wish it was as black and white as text in a book. But then again, I do love how every day brings something new and exciting. Your child’s nutrition, along with sleep, seems to be one of the most challenging aspects for us new parents. Can I just tell you how much time i’ve spent trying to figure out both?! As far as feeding goes, I think that the #fedisbest movement is always key to remember – no matter…

    Your Health At Your Fingertips – I took an At-Home Food Sensitivity Test and here’s what I thought

    Disclaimer – I was given the Food Sensitivity Test by Everlywell in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own.  Let me tell you a little story…. I grew up playing soccer, riding horses, eating what every other normal person ate, with no issues. I was healthy. When I was 19, I had a sports related knee injury, requiring surgery. A week post surgery, I found myself back in the hospital with a severe infection, requiring a PICC line in my arm for daily rounds of IV antibiotics. I recovered just fine, so I thought. In the months and years that followed, I had…

    A Romantic Floral Nursery

    My sweet little Evie spent her first 8 months of life living out of a pack and play, so her nursery is special to both of us! She arrived just weeks before selling our home, moving temporarily in with my parents, and then moving to our new (fixer upper) home in Florida. When we finally were able to put together her room I was beyond thrilled!! I mean, it’s still not completely finished, but I was too excited not to share! 🙂

    Why Your Baby’s Gut Health Matters

    This post is sponsored by Evivo but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. My personal whole health journey began when I ended up on months of IV of antibiotics after getting a secondary infection after my knee surgery. The antibiotics completely destroyed my gut health, resulting in various ailments, intolerances and sensitivities in the years that followed. Now as a mother of two, I am very conscious of the importance of gut health and the vital role it plays in our immune systems and the overall well-being of our bodies. I’ve recently spent some time researching probiotic use in babies, and how it can strengthen the immune…

    Travel Approved: The Perfect Day Trip Diaper Bag

    This post is sponsored by JJ Cole but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. We’ve been lucky enough to go to Disney twice so far this year. The first time was completely on a whim, so absolutely no preplanning, crazy I know. The second time I had a bit more time to plan ahead and bring everything I wish I had the first go round. We are an active family and I travel with the kids pretty frequently, but I have to say a trip to Disney is a great gauge for the durability and versatility of any kid product!   One of the things I wish I…

    Easy Toddler Meals for Busy Families

    This post is sponsored by Happy Family Brands but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. I can’t believe I am sharing my little Evie girl eating big girl food! I mean, I basically just brought her home from the hospital! Eating healthy has always been a priority for me, especially now that I have kids. We try to eat organic and non-GMO whenever possible – I follow the Dirty Dozen List on items we try to always get organic. But, we are also really busy. We all know that eating healthy can be a real challenge for busy families – especially when you have kids sensitive to…
