I love my boys! I do have to admit that looking at Carter's Bodysuit:


Makes me want to have a girl. It's so cute!

Mom Spotted is giving away a $50 Gift Card to Carter's. I never realized that Carter's sells things for kids going up to size 7! I thought it was just a company for babies. Such a great company!


Shoes for Toddlers

I liked soft soled shoes for my babies. Robeez stayed on their feet really well. When they get a little older and walk around more, you need shoes that can withstand rocks, sticks and cracks in the sidewalk.

UMI Shoes are durable and high quality! I didn't hesitate money wise with my oldest child; because I know the shoes I bought would be used twice. Now they are being used a third time with my nephew and they still withstand wear.

Mom Spotted is giving away a $60 Umi gift card!!!

Breastfeeding Campaign

I just love these ads found here. They are not in your face, but get the point across: Breastfeeding really helps.

Economic Stimulus Packages - June/July 2009 Fit Pregnancy

The ad relates to the economic stresses.

The ad copy reads:  “Breastfeeding boosts your bank account and your baby’s immune system, saving you on hospital visits, doctor’s bills, medicine and missed days of work.  It could also save billions on health care costs.  Is your hospital, physician, employer and insurer doing their part to help you succeed?  Let us help you find out at bestforbabes.org.” 

August 2009 "Life Saving Devices"
Life Saving Devices - August 2009 Mom & Baby Magazine
The value of breastfeeding and donor milk. In the hospitals they refer to breastmilk as liquid gold. It is preferred for infant emergencies.
 
The ad copy reads:  "Every day and in emergencies, breastfeeding saves lives. Planning on nursing? The night crew can make for smoother sailing. Get a support group. Get expert lactation help. Make sure your hospital, physician, employer and insurer are doing their part to help you succeed. We'll show you how at bestforbabies.org"

Guest Post - Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog

Hi! I’m Heather. I am a mesothelioma cancer survivor (one of the 2%). I guest blog on the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance Blog

 

When my daughter Lily was just 3 ½ months old, I was diagnosed with mesothelioma.  As any mother would, I knew I needed to fight to be part of the 2% of people who survive this disease. I did everything it took, including having the most extensive treatments, and even having to miss the 6th month of Lily’s life while I was in Boston for surgery.

The reason I blog about my experience is to help other moms who may be going through a similar situation to my own.  I want my blog to serve as a means of inspiration and hope to those who need it.  In this way, I hope to help as many people as possible!

I hope that if you ever need some inspiration, you will check out my blog!
