My Acid Reflux Baby and What Works for Her (That No Doctor Told Me About)

My Acid Reflux Baby, Colic, Reflux Remedy

My Daughter’s Experience with Baby Acid Reflux and What Is Working for Her Now As you can tell from my post, What I Wish I Knew Before Having a Second Child, my second baby has not exactly been an easy experience for me. I believe the main reason for this is because she is a reflux baby and figuring out what was wrong and what eventually helped her took months.

I wanted to write him this letter to make sure he knows that what he does for me and our girls doesn’t go unnoticed. To My Best Friend, I remember being in the operating room, when they were performing the C-section on me to deliver our first …

How a Little Goes a Long Way (An Important Lesson I Learned from My Toddler)

I remember the days before my first daughter was born when I’d be out at a restaurant and see a family at a table with their kids glued to a phone or tablet and I found myself judging them. How can that be good for them? Shouldn’t the dinner table, at the very least, be free from electronics? I remember many occasions where I vowed that when I had children, they would not be allowed on phones or tablets until an older age. I would find alternative ways of playing with them and teaching them. We would sing songs and …
