October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and it's good timing, because I have boobs on the brain. Namely, my own boobs. (Although I'm sure yours are quite nice.) Considering their utility alone, my boobs have served me well over...
Moms everywhere agree: Pumping sucks! It can be painful at first, it's time-consuming, and it can be hard to find a comfortable, discreet place to do it. And the cleaning — there are so many parts to clean! When my...
I exclusively breastfed both of my children. It was a commitment I made, and I'm proud of myself for doing it. But if anyone asks, I downplay it. I joke that it's cheaper than formula, or that I'm just...

Have you ever noticed that lazy people are the most tired? I should know, because I am one (a lazy, tired person). But I have a theory. Lazy people are actually not lazy at all in the long term....
I have a 3-year-old and a 3-month-old. As I'm sure all you moms know, my days consist of running around after the former while trying to keep the latter clean and well fed. Snacks are a key part of...
Pregnancy presents many challenges, one of which is getting dressed each day. Dressing a growing baby bump isn't easy. But the wardrobe challenges don't end when your baby is born. When you're nursing, getting dressed means your breasts must be accessible any time,...
We’re in the midst of one of my favorite times of the year — wedding season. And as someone who absolutely loves attending weddings, I’m beyond excited for three family members and friends who are getting hitched this year! Over the past...
