I love me some yoga! I really enjoyed yoga at the end of my pregnancy. It truly helped to calm me and allow me to focus on staying grounded before giving birth.
I strongly recommend doing some prenatal yoga at the end of pregnancy when preparing to bring new life into your home. It helped me focus on eating right and getting my head in the right space.
I also started doing some yoga after giving birth as well to help heal my body.
Sleeping is such a popular topic amongst all new mommies.
People always ask how are they sleeping? Are you getting any sleep? Every baby is different. I personally love sleeping with my babies. I love having that extra time with them at night and love how easy it makes breast feeding. For the first few months, I do get up and sit in my glider to nurse, and have those special precious moments at night. You only live once and I love to cherish every precious moment while I can, which is why I adore sleeping with my children.
There are a lot of tips that I strongly recommend for co-sleeping safely if you are going to try it. Watch the video for my tips!
I also recently discovered Sleepyhead, (which I don’t believe is available yet in the US). It is very similar to the Snuggle Nest, which I used last time. This time I have been loving the Sleepyhead. Amazing for sleeping in different beds (traveling), etc… I also am using the Arm’s Reach co-sleeper this time around, which is wonderful! I love the safety aspect of it and also the accessibility and closeness it provides.
I recently have been reading some of Dr. Sears books (The Attachment Parenting Book and The Baby Sleep Book,) which offer lots of tips and advice on co-sleeping as well as many benefits (helps prevent SIDS and lots more!) Dr. Sears’ website also lists some quick safety rules as well if you don’t have time to read an entire book.
Happy cuddle sessions and sweet dreams!
As a parent, I always try to do the best I can for my children.
Babyproofing our homes is an important step to take to help keep our children safe.

My roommate from college at Southern Methodist University has the most chic little blog all about children’s style! What mommy doesn’t love the topic of kids fashion? It’s always fun to get inspired by what other people put together. Being a stylist herself, it only makes sense that Alexis has a blog on the topic of fashion. And being such an amazing mommy, it makes perfect sense that she chooses children’s fashion to blog about. Make sure and check out www.minialamode.com
