My Journey through Colic, GERD, and Acid Reflux

Colic GERD and Acid Reflux

Colic, GERD, and Acid Reflux. The words you dread hearing when you have a newborn.  You know how horrible heartburn, acid reflux from a greasy meal, and a tummy ache feel yourself? Imagine what your baby feels when her underdevelopment organs aren’t functioning properly. It’s the worst feeling in the world hearing your baby suffer in pain. All you can do is try to soothe.

Kansas City Mompreneur

The Mommy Wrap was definitely inspired by motherhood.  I would have never thought up this idea if my sweet little babies hadn’t suffered from colic.  Lindsay Shively, news anchor for KSHB 41 Action News of Kansas City, in her ninth month of pregnancy, did a story on the creation of The Mommy Wrap, along with the creation and story on local “mompreneuer,” Egreis Gjergjani of Itty Bitty Toes.  Egreis and I went through two pregnancies together, our youngest children just weeks apart.

Breastfeeding & Sleep: Yes, You Can Have Both!

Breastfeeding and Sleep

Many expectant moms fear that if they choose to breastfeed their baby, then that means they won’t see a decent night’s sleep for a few years. This is simply not true!

Feeding your baby is relaxing, and it definitely makes them sleepy, especially at night. Breast milk contains melatonin at night, so your body is actually helping to make your newborn sleepy during the night, so everyone can get back to sleep quickly! Almost all babies will fall asleep during …

The Truth About Age Regressions

Sleep Regression

The Truth About Age “Regressions”: Guest Post As a mom of 4 and a pediatric sleep consultant, I have heard parents complain about “regressions” with practically every month of their child’s first few years (ie 4mo, 6mo, 9mo, 18mo regression, etc). Many parents believe that because their child’s sleep seems to change every couple of months that it must be due to a sleep regression of some sort, as they are often not clear as to why the change is occurring. defines regression as the reversion to a chronologically earlier or less adapted pattern of behavior and feeling. Personally, I …
