As a new mom, I appreciate every little moment with my baby – but it can become all to easy to forget all the first moments between sleep deprivation and all the hundred other things on my plate. Having heard rave reviews of the baby memory books by Lucy Darling, I was so excited to check them out and begin documenting special moments. READ MORE

Mom & Kidsaden + anais layette

adenI’m so excited to break the news that aden + anais, my fave brand for baby swaddles, blankets, bibs, and more has finally launched a line of layette clothing (available on the 27th)! The only thing better than being all wrapped up in the sweet cotton muslin is wearing it all day. I’m absolutely in love with the adorable shapes and prints for both tiny boys and girls. I’ve trusted both my babies with aden + anais products, which are uber-soft and absorbent, and hold up amazingly well to constant washing and drying. They only get softer with time and use!

Books, Mom & KidsBook Review: When Lyla Got Lost

lyla

It’s hard to think about my little girl growing up sometimes, and realizing that loving her so much also makes me want to protect her as much as possible. Now that she’s becoming more independent, I absolutely want her to know what to do if she ever finds herself separated from us. The new book launching today, When Lyla Got Lost (and Found) is a perfect way to introduce precautionary measure to a child without scaring them. The book is simple enough for a 3-year-old to understand, but the message is pertinent for older children as well. The watercolor illustrations are endearing and cute- and they certainly engaged my munchkin. Moms can all relate to that split second where something shiny or bouncy takes the attention of a little one, and suddenly they are out of sight! Lyla’s experience provides peace of mind for both parents and children, so a happy (and relieved) reunion can take place.
