This fashionable Jellystone Teething Necklace has been my go-to from breastfeeding through teething. It was perfect to keep Baby Austin's attention while nursing, and now it's perfect for his teething stage. I receive compliments on it all the time, and when people find out that it's actually a teething necklace they are shocked! I'm not going to lie, I've actually worn this necklace out on the town (without my kids) because it's so cute!
There's nothing like the day of love with a newborn. Sure, your significant other is one reason this holiday is so special to you, but there's something about a mother's love for her children that makes Valentine's Day so special. As a new mom, it's important to cherish all of these memories before they grow up in a blink of an eye. Here are 3 crafts for Baby's First Valentine's Day that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
It's that time of year... time to set those New Year's Resolutions. So, what's it going to be for 2016 – and do you think you'll stick to them? Sadly, most people don't actually keep to their resolutions, but it's not all their fault. Typically, we jot down some very broad resolutions without a game plan. This year, we're all about scaling back and focusing on smaller daily changes. Here are 5 resolutions every new mom can handle:
1. Stop comparing.
Just stop it already. You're new at this mom thing, and hey, we've all been there! You will never parent exactly like someone else, not even your own mother. It's a complete waste of energy, and worse, it causes you to feel down on yourself. Being a mom is no easy feat. We wake up wanting to be awesome every day, but some days we have to settle for just being okay. That's reality.
2. Return that call.
Even if it is just a 30 second phone call, call your family and friends back! It's so easy to get wrapped up in baby (and we can't blame you!), but it's also important to keep your social life healthy. Eventually, all your kids will move out and you're going to need those people.
3. Enjoy the mess.
Listen, it's never going to be clean until you're retired and the mess makers leave the nest. Yes, dirty clothes and a sink full of dishes drives us bonkers, but it's going to get worse before it gets better. Insider tip: You'll miss the days of toys strewn all over the house. You might even miss stepping on a lego from time to time.
4. Put down the phone.
It's so easy to be sitting on the couch with your husband and children with your head in your phone. Put it down. These are precious times and you're missing out on creating precious memories. Resolve to not check your phone until you've had a Barbie play date, or taken baby for a stroll around the neighborhood. This will be hard, but we promise, it is so worth it!
5. Schedule "me" time.
We know you just laughed... but this is the single most important resolution you could ever make for yourself. Take 5 minutes to call your girlfriend, schedule a night out once a month with your hubs, close the door and pee alone... whatever it takes just to have a few minutes of solitude for yourself. You need to recharge your batteries if you want to operate at optimal performance all of the time. Spoil yourself every once in a while... you deserve it! Shop at-home health & beauty supplies here.
Be present. Put your phone down. Be patient with yourself. Have "me" time everyday. Most importantly, have a Happy New Year! Oh, and repeat after us...
