Until about two minutes ago, I didn't know who Chrissy Teigen was. I still probably wouldn't be able to pick her out of a lineup, unless of course the lineup was comprised of normal people, because she's surely taller, more bronzed,...
We all do it. We read the books and watch our friends and somehow unintentionally internalize everything the internet has to say on everything you should/shouldn't do as a parent (so that it sits there on our shoulder, passing...
In the beginning (the beginning before the beginning), breastfeeding is a holy thing. A sweet, perfect ideal. We're talking Madonnas with halos, black and white photography with blurred edges. It is cast in gold with amber glowing light. It's...
After breastfeeding my first son for 14 months, I was pretty sure I'd mastered the whole breastfeeding gig. Plugged ducts? Bad latches? Pumping? Teeth? Check, check, check, check. I was a pro. Ha. My younger son is going on 22 months...

A few weeks ago my son turned 4 months old. A day later, I started a new job — and I entered a new stage of motherhood that centers around pumping. I should say that from the outset, my...
As we count down the weeks until baby number two joins us, my husband and I have been reminiscing about the newborn days. You know, that cute, squishy phase where all they do is eat, sleep, poop, pee, repeat? No toys,...
A few days after I moved to Massachusetts, my in-laws brought my 6-month-old son and me into Boston to play tourist in our new city. As is the case with many babies, my son needed to nurse several times throughout...
In my journey to motherhood, I first had to let go of the ideal of getting pregnant “naturally” through a beautiful and romantic interaction with the love of my life. You marry another woman, that’s part of the deal....
Yesterday I went to buy baby gifts for a dear friend who is due with her first baby this summer. While I wistfully passed by rows of cute baby blankets, clothes, and toys, I knowingly restrained myself to get...
Trying to feed our kids healthy foods is a conversation that never seems to end — in my family, with our pediatrician, with our friends. I have found myself having many, many conversations through the years about ensuring my kids are eating...
