The benefits of babywearing for a new mama are endless, from helping you bond with your babe, to enabling you to go hands-free, to making it easier to simply get out and about...when getting out and about seems like an impossible feat. But while we do love babywearing, we also know it can do a number on your wardrobe, since whatever wrap you choose, well, basically becomes your wardrobe. But now that Solly Baby has partnered with Rifle Paper Co. on a wrap, that's not such a bad thing. The Rifle x Solly Baby Wrap will be your fall fashion accessory of choice. The beautiful, whimsical black tapestry pattern, featuring goldenrod, petal, and teal floral, is as bold as it is neutral...we can't imagine an outfit it wouldn't make better! It's as cozy as it is chic, made from Solly Baby's signature 100% Certified Lenzing Modal, sourced from the pulp of Austrian Beechwood trees. And it's light and luxurious, making it a go-to day after day after day....from baby's Day 1 right up through 25 lbs. We're not the only ones who think so; the Rifle x Solly Baby Wrap sold out in just one day! But we saved one just for you! Enter below to win it.
Sleep is possible, mama.
They say necessity is the mother of invention—and nothing makes you more inventive than motherhood.
Sometimes that means fashioning a diaper out of paper towels and your older child's underpants (true story). Sometimes that means creating an innovative and life-changing weighted baby sleep sack and totally crushing it on Shark Tank. Tara Williams is the latter.
And I'm never going back to lotion.
For all the sweating and swimming I do in the summer, it seems illogical for my skin to be as parched as ever. But your mid-thirties (and 2020 in general) don't really seem to follow any rule book, so here we are.
A couple of months ago, I was on the lookout for a moisturizer that would not only keep my legs from looking like an ashy mess, but also truly nourish and benefit my skin. I've developed a deep interest in skin care for my face over the past few years and decided it's high time to extend that degree of consideration to the rest of my body. (After all, there's more of it, right?)
It's not that I'm too concerned with aging, but let's be real. If there's something that can be done to slow the Wrinkle Express, I'm going to give it a go. I also wanted to find something natural that wouldn't turn into a goopy mess the second I started sweating.
Enter: Esker's Firming Body Oil.
4. Exhaustion is real.
Two weeks. I cannot believe that it has been two weeks since my second son was brought into this world. Two weeks since my husband and I welcomed baby Simon, the final piece of our little family.
But, here is the whopper: It has been two weeks since I have been the mom of a toddler and a newborn. I am now responsible for taking care of two tiny humans.
It absolutely blows my mind how much my life has changed in the last two weeks. It's definitely not all rainbows and unicorns around here, but things are going pretty well. This is me being cautiously optimistic.
