Mornings with a Two-Year-Old Rebel

Baby Juliza is 2 and a half years old now. Old enough that I may have to stop referring to her as “baby” Juliza soon. You would think that sometime during that period, she would have learned how to sleep. As in all the way through the night. Not halfway. Not a quarter.

What’s in My Baby Bag, Toddler Edition

Breastfeeding is magical. OK. Maybe not magical. But there are quite a few perks, one of which is not having to make bottles of formula, and another of which is never having to take said bottles of formula with me when leaving the house. As a result, baby Juliza’s baby bag has always been free… Continue reading What’s in My Baby Bag, Toddler Edition

Affordable Nursing Bras and Basics that are Actually Comfy

By some miracle, Juliza and I have made it 22 — almost 23 — months strong on our breastfeeding adventure. And though I had all these grand plans to be done with nursing by the time she turned 2, it seems my little one has other plans. I’ve decided to practice child-led weaning with her, so… Continue reading Affordable Nursing Bras and Basics that are Actually Comfy

Our Favorite Diapers + Toddler Snacking

A few weeks ago, we bought a potty for my 18-month-old. And she promptly refused to sit on it. Unless she’s wearing clothes, of course. She has a great time lounging in the bathroom when she’s fully dressed, but when we take off her diaper and try to get her to sit on it, she’s… Continue reading Our Favorite Diapers + Toddler Snacking
