Mama, you’ve got things under control.
You’re doing your best for your baby every day and taking pretty good care of yourself, too. Being a parent has changed your life—no question. But there’s so much joy to be found in #momlife and you’re good at finding it. Whether you’re navigating the postpartum period and learning how to breastfeed or having fun finding your own style and rhythm as a mom, I’m giving you the same advice I give my closest friends.
These articles are all about helping you feel confident and prepared in these delightful but demanding days.
If you have breastfeeding goals, I’d love to help you meet them.
It’s definitely worth discussing ways to make breastfeeding easier for moms, whether it’s through simple breastfeeding education or how to get partners more involved in what can feel like an all-consuming activity. I’ve tried many breastfeeding products in my personal search for things that would make me feel more comfortable and more like myself while breastfeeding. I want you to feel more comfortable too!

You’re a smart shopper with excellent taste.
You love curating the perfect wardrobe and decorating a comfortable family home. You’re not afraid to invest in quality items and love it when you find a really good deal—the kind you can’t help bragging about.

Postpartum doesn’t have to be scary.
The days following birth are a different adventure for every family. There’s a new baby to get to know and a lot on your mind. You may be more tired than you ever imagined (I was!) or sore from near-constant breastfeeding (I was)! You may be disappointed that your pre-pregnancy jeans still won’t fit for a few more months or, let’s be honest, surprised that none of your pre-pregnancy clothes will ever really work again. (I can kind of laugh about it now.) But there are sweet moments too: singing your baby’s first lullabies, holding her tiny hand, watching her sleep peacefully on your chest.
I write about the challenges I faced during postpartum (like cleaning my house) to give you some ideas that can help during this big transition.
Smart moms can be stylish and practical.
They wear shoes that allow them to chase their busy toddlers, nursing bras that don’t make them feel frumpy, and diaper bags that keep them organized and prepared on the go. It does take a little more effort to check all of these boxes as a new mom. Good news: I’ve done the legwork for you.
