Being More Than a Mom: How to Keep Your Individual Identity

Being a mom is one of the most magical and rewarding things that you can do. However, just because you’re a parent, it doesn’t mean that it’s all you want to be. Being a mom can be all-consuming, especially in the beginning, but you also want to have a life outside of your role as a mom. You should be able to have friends and take part in activities that you enjoy. All of the things that make you who you are extend beyond being a parent. However, doing things outside of being a mom doesn’t always mean doing them without your kids. There are plenty of ways to have your own life while also maintaining your role as a loving and present mom.

Why Probiotics Are Essential in the First 6 Months of Life

Why Probiotics Are Essential in the First 6 Months of Life

Did you know that the first 6 months of a babies life is the crucial time for implementing good digestive health?

I won’t lie, I have to take an iron supplement because I am anemic which messes up the digestive system. Constipation from the overload of iron is unreal, which is why I take probiotics. But did you know that probiotics can be passed onto the baby in the womb too? I HIGHLY recommend that ALL pregnant women take not only probiotics but digestive enzymes as well.

The Importance of Free Play Outside

The Importance of Free Play Outside

Did you know that kids nowadays spend 35% less time playing outside than we did when we were kids? I remember going out and making mud pies, swinging on the tire swing, swimming in the pool, and just creating an imaginary world where everything was fun and what I believed to be perfect.

I admit, it’s sometimes easier to get a break now and then by allowing my toddler to watch videos or play learning games on the tablet while I am trying to take care of things in the house or with baby sis, but I do try to make it a priority to get her outside for free play at least once a day.
