Hi Internet peeps!
I’m probably super late to the party, but I discovered a new (new for me) sleep sack! It’s called the Zen Sack by The Nested Bean and it’s awesome! It has a weighted chest that mimics a parents’ touch to soothe your baby to sleep. If you have a tummy sleeper, you can put the sack on with the weight in the back and put your baby to sleep that way. There’s a two way zipper for easy diaper changes and adjustable shoulder straps for your fast growing baby!
They also have a Zen Swaddle for babies 0-6 months old and you can swaddle with arms in or out.

I’ve been looking for the perfect Tee Pee for Olivia’s room, basically since she was born. I loved the thought of having a space for her to play and imagine in her room and for some reason having a tee pee was always in my mind. Well, the search is over y’all! I found the perfect tee pee over at Tnee’s Tpees and I wanted to share it with you!
This company is owned and operated by a husband and wife team that make unique, functional and stylish tee pees that can really go anywhere in your house!
The tee pees are easy to set up and don’t have any extra strings or attachments, which was a plus for me! They are so pretty and Pinterest worthy, that you can just leave them up all year long!

Hello! I’ve been getting questions from different people about starting my babies on solid foods recently, so I wanted to write a post about it!
Baby Led Weaning is my go to! It’s basically starting your 6 month old babies on whole foods as opposed to smooth foods, this way they learn how to chew before they learn to swallow as opposed to the other way around when you start them on store bought baby food. It will expose your babies to different textures and different flavors, and it will also teach your baby how to feed herself. Yes, even without teeth. 🙂
Olivia (now 2 years old) started on cucumber sticks and purple potatoes and now Avery (6 months) is on the same track! I might start a little slower with Avery though, because she’s a different baby and doesn’t seem THAT interested in food right now.
BLW is great because you can just give your baby what you are eating at the dinner table, assuming you’re not eating McDonald’s every night, and they are then a part of your dinner routine. It was fun seeing Olivia discover foods and develop her sensory and motor skills.
Also, just because it says “weaning” in the title, doesn’t mean that they will wean from nursing. Olivia nursed for 20 months (she self weaned) and she started solids at 6 months.
Here are the few items I started off with :
- Baby Led Weaning Cookbook – They have another book that tells what BLW really is and how to do it step by step, however I found that the cookbook says the same things PLUS it gives you recipes to try.
- OXO Bibs – These bibs are AMAZING to catch the fall out 🙂
- Baby Led Weaning Book – This is the original book that I was talking about… just in case you’re interested.
- Baby Led Weaning for Vegans – This is for my vegan friends 🙂
- Bumbo – We love using this as a high chair alternative and it’s very versatile.
**I’m not expert, I’m just writing from my personal experience. Remember that every baby is different and will reach different milestones at their own pace and time.
I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions! How did you start your babies on solids???
Hi! Do you have a toddler or a child that has nightmares or night terrors?? This video is for you! My oldest (2 yrs) was waking up screaming a few months ago and I found an oil that helped her with her nightmares! Check it out!
Hiya! So I’ve been getting questions about where I got Olivia’s unicorn cake from so I wanted to share it with you! Being both gluten free and vegan, we also raise our girls the same way so finding a vegan bakery that also has gluten free options is key for us. We found Dulce Vegan Bakery in Atlanta and we could not have been happier! Apparently this unicorn cake is one of their specialties and they do an amazing job decorating it! You can customize the colors, of course and they have a variety of flavors to choose from. We chose vanilla cake with vanilla frosting (Olivia is allergic to chocolate) and it was delicious! If you’re in the Atlanta area and looking for an awesome bakery, Dulce is the way to go!!
