Carseat Safety by Christine Lee-McNaughton

Car seats terrified me because I was always worried that my car seat wasn’t good enough or Little One wasn’t positioned properly. Some sources said that there should not be any “rolls” or anything in the car seat except for the baby, lest the baby get smothered. Other sources said because she was a preemie and less than 5 lbs, it was okay to stick rolled up towels or rolled up blankets on either side of her. So many conflicting rules!

Um….yes we did. But it was more based on dining experiences.

Toddlers & Hitting: What To Do?

Have you ever gone to a play date, play group, birthday party, dinner party, or other kind of social gathering where you have noticed a child pushing, hitting, or biting other kids?

Birthday Parties for Toddlers by Christine Lee-McNaughton

Circus clowns, magicians, bouncy gyms, and inflatable castles…That’s what I’m all about! Just kidding. I am deathly afraid of clowns, too cheap to hire a magician, and bouncy gyms and inflatable castles scare me because I see “DISASTER” written all over them.

Homemade Baby Food by Christine Lee-McNaughton

With Little One being my first baby, I wanted to do everything “right” for her. I wanted to nurse her for as long as I could or until she self-weaned. I wanted to give her wholesome, healthy, unprocessed food.
