Tummy Trouble in Breastfed Babies

Posted by Stacey on 11/27/2012 to Breast Feeding

Tummy Pain in baby is usually pretty obvious. The arching back, the tooting, the excessive burping/spitting up and the high pitched scream are all good indications that something is amiss. Breastfeeding moms have the daunting task of wondering about too little milk, too much let-down and that extra cup of coffee. In most cases, gas is the culprit but before you put down that broccoli, consider all of the possibilities.

Product Review: The AMAZING CJ's BUTTer Spritz

Posted by Stacey on 11/25/2012 to Cloth Diaper Accessories

Everyone is shopping away so I thought it would be the perfect time to review one of the great natural baby care products on sale this weekend here at Diaper Junction. CJ's BUTTer Spritz is the liquid version of the popular CJ's BuTTer Diaper Cream and this little bottle is full of AMAZING.

Skin, particularly baby skin, is most likely to become irritated when its either missing an essential component or being exposed to things that remove essential components. New baby skin is protected from amniotic fluid by vernix but once its exposed to dry air, changes occur on the molecular level that makes it vulnerable. This is the root of most baby skin conditions like baby acne, cradle cap and diaper rash. If skin is the problem, CJ's is the solution - read here to find out why.

Raising Thankful Children

Posted by Stacey on 11/20/2012 to Mom Madness

As I am preparing for Thanksgiving and all of the chaos associated with it, I am also thinking about whether or not my boys really understand what it is to be thankful. Sure, "please and thank you" manners are easy but have I actually gotten through to them with lessons about thankfulness and gratitude? Am I setting a good example, as I grumble about the logistics of the holiday? My house, in addition to be being a loving and comforting environment, is a training facility.

Surviving the First Night Out

Posted by Stacey on 11/19/2012 to Mom Madness

If there is one truth about having children, it’s that you will never know how much your life will change until it happens. No one can explain the joy and no one can explain the fear. Leaving a baby for the first time is no different.

Confessions of a Former Control Freak

Posted by Stacey on 11/18/2012 to Mom Madness
I am a recovering control freak. Over the last few years, I have slowly stopped letting my need to be in charge wreak havoc on my life.

My ability to let things go has improved with every unexpected event, and I've learned more about my husband in the last year than our first 9 years of marriage. Now, he makes the cupcakes...read more to find out why.
