A new mom’s secret: I’m jealous of my baby

Lauren (not her real name) was blissfully pregnant with her first child, enjoying her growing bump and attention from well wishers. But right after her daughter Emma was born, Lauren began to feel an overwhelming sense of jealousy towards her daughter. Friends and family who used to dote on her were now cooing over baby Emma. People stopped asking Lauren how she was and focused on the latest baby news. When her husband came home from work,...

Tanner was always happy and smiling but something...

This condition is called Diastasis Recti, or in...

Oh, the explosive outbursts that shatter the peace of our homes! For many parents, it’s the dreaded tantrum that keeps them walking on eggshells all day long. Or keeps them from having company or arranging playdates for their child. Sometimes your kid just goes off for no apparent reason. You made macaroni and he wanted a hot dog.

Your baby and the common cold

As your baby get’s older and starts to become mobile, she will start putting things in her mouth or touching new things that may not pass your ‘clean’ test. Those curious little fingers will almost always end up in her mouth before you get a chance to wash them. Don’t panic. This exposure to germs will likely make her immune system stronger – but the bad news is, there will be quite a few sniffles and upset tummies along the...

Every night we (my husband and I take turns) snuggle up with both kids in my daughter’s bed (it’s the bigger one for...
