Shari Criso: VBAC

I know I posted this on All in One but this is really important to me that you all hear about it:

Every week I love to get on and watch Shari Criso, so is a midwife a mother of two and owner of a great store called The Birth Boutique. And every week I have leaned something new about cloth diapering,  breastfeeding, new and great products and many more things. She has a show that you can go watch… LIVE every Tuesday night where you can ask her questions, get answers, meet other great moms out there, and even win prizes.

TrueWomb swaddle reviews

Have you ever notice that once your baby is born the doctors swaddle your little one? It's a great way to clam your baby, and make them feel comfortable. Think about it they just spent the last 9 months in a warm small space. Swaddle can help clam a baby down or even help them sleep better. We swaddled Aiden all the time when he was first born. And let me tell you it was not easy as a first time mom trying to get the folds right. 

I could never get it to stay nice and tight. He would somehow kick his way out at the bottom. I really wish I had known about TrueWomb before he was born.

Babies do the funnest things

Aiden loves to look at himself in the mirror like most babies. Well today as I was putting on my makeup I sat him in front of my closet mirror. This way he is where I can see him but I can still get ready. So he found a friend.... and a red forehead!!

Hashimoto's disease

So some of you have read last week that I had hypothyroidism. I was surprised at how many of you have it to. Seams to be common with women. Well I TriCare (army) insurance and they make you go see their Dr. before you can go see a specialist. To make sure your not full of it lol. He thinks I have something called Hashimoto's disease. Which I love to say... ha she mo toe. In a nut shell its saying that I have both hypo and hyper thyroidism. 

Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder, meaning the body’s immune system attacks its own healthy cells and tissues. In Hashimoto’s disease, the immune system makes antibodies that attack cells in the thyroid and interfere with their ability to produce thyroid hormone. Large numbers of white blood cells called lymphocytes accumulate in the thyroid. Lymphocytes make the antibodies that drive the autoimmune process.

Wordless Wednesday: Little Randy

This is a really old photo of my nephew but I thought it was so cute that I had to share it. He will be turning 4 this week so Happy Birthday little Randy. (he was 2 at the time, I think here)

Banana Brush review and giveaway 6/30

HI all Katie here again. Well as you might know by now Aiden has his two bottom teeth in and is working on a few more. So I am always looking for great new teething product for him to chew on. However I have also been looking for a tooth brush so we can clean the gums and his two teeth. I have heard about a product called Baby Banana Brush and was really excited to try them out. So I entered some giveaways, and lost. But luckily for me the company was looking for someone to do a review on it. So I jumped on that one and got the brush I wanted!

Mobbed the TV show

So there is this great new TV show that is on Fox that I just HAVE to share with you. Its called Mobbed. Howie Mandel puts a hidden-camera spin on the "flash mob" concept. I really can't tell you more then that because you have to watch this. It WILL make you cry. Best 15 minutes of my life!!!

Hypothyroidism and my struggle with it

Hi there every one I am going to take you on a trip of what hypothyroidism is and how I have been dealing with it and what is next to come. I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism for over four years now.  When I first found out that I had it the Dr. really did not do much, did not tell me what is was or how bad it was. They just put me on some meds for a month and that was the end of it.  Lets start off with telling you what a thyroid is, where it is and what it does.

Luau games

Hey all Katie here. Did you get a chance to download that free Luau eBook yet? I hope so cause I am going to be talking to a little about some of the game you can buy with it. Like "Lei it on me."

And the Winner is......

And the winner is.......

Facebook giveaway rules NEW please read this

All Blogger PLEASE READ THIS......

I just wanted to post this really fast. I am not sure how many of you know whats going on or how this effects us bloggers. But Facebook is no longer allowing giveaways on there unless its administered within Apps on, either on a Canvas Page or an app on a Page Tab.

They are also making it sound as if we blogger have a giveaway in witch we ask as an entry to go like a page on Facebook. We must now have a disclaimer about Facebook on the giveaway. 

I can not stress to you all enough to go read this and add a disclaimer at the end of your giveaway post. Facebook has already started to close pages down and the last thing we need is for them to do that!

To read more about the new Facebook "guild lines" just click on the link HERE

If you have read different or know something more please let me know.

MoBoleez Giveaway June 24

Over the past few month there has been a lot of controversy about breastfeed babies in public. I am a nursing mom and I know it made me mad. However I don't nurse in public, I am VERY VERY self consciences and I feel weird doing it. Aiden loves to move and I am always worried that he is going to move and I will flash the world. However when I am at friends or family I do nurse there and still need something to cover me up. Most of the time I have been using a big cover that he gets hot in. But thank to MoBoleez I have been able to try this cute nursing hat.
