Mommy Time Out

Hi! I'm Angela Hickman and I'm a Milton mom to a beautiful girl and handsome boy! Yep I have the "Million Dollar" family:) I love being a mom and my wish is to one day be a stay at home mom. It's tough being a full time employee, mom to highly energetic kids and wife to a wonderful husband. There isn't much time for a Mommy Time Out but I always try to find a little time. I love to shop and find new things that help make life easier and sometimes even more fun. My blog is all about the joys and frustrations of being a mom and hopefully helping other parents find products that will help make their life easier.

Tips for Traveling with Baby

Try to keep the sleep environment as consistent as possible. If your child has familiar things (and smells) around them, they are more likely to sleep a little better. Take the crib sheet from the crib with you, don't wash it. We want it straight from the crib. Take the pajamas your child wore the night before, again don't wash them. We want these things to smell the same as at home. Making it easier for your child to feel comfortable in the...

Breastfeeding in Portugal

I just spent nearly three weeks in Portugal and quite a bit of time visiting its beautiful beaches. I couldn’t help but notice how many women were breastfeeding babies of all ages.

Women openly breastfeeding their babies. No covering up. No embarrassed looks from them....
