Recently, I was approached by TheMotherhood.com to co-host a great discussion giving “words of wisdom” to expecting and new moms. Maybe they asked me because my website threw them off, “MommyB Knows Best.” While I admit I don’t know it all, (shhh don’t tell anyone, it may ruin my reputation!), I sure do love giving new moms some of the advice that helped me along the way, including, “Listen to the advice that everyone gives you, but only use what you feel is best for your family.”
Whether you’re not a mom yet, a mom-to-be, or a seasoned mommy, this chat is for everyone. Participants of the chat will automatically be entered in an Avent giftbasket giveaway so be sure to tell your friends and family to come chat with me too.
Join me tomorrow, at 12:00 noon eastern standard time for this great LIVE text chat and Avent giveaway. Here’s how to make sure you get a chance to chat: go to http://www.themotherhood.com and sign up for your free account (no strings attached) today or tomorrow morning before the chat begins so you don’t miss out on any of the fun! Then tomorrow at 12:00 noon, Eastern Standard time go to this link: http://www.themotherhood.com/talk/show/id/62065 and sign in using your username and password and chat away!
Hope you get a chance to jump in on this fun discussion and help me kick off my first co-hosting “gig” with a big bang!
What is your “best” piece of mommy advice???
Before I even gave birth to Miss A I received sample products in the mail from Lansinoh, a great company that focuses on real moms and providing products to meet their nursing needs.
I absolutely love Lansinoh’s Lanolin cream (nipp
You go, I go, ERGO. Sorry that’s the first thing that popped into my head. Seriously though, everyone needs to get an ERGO Baby Carrier. I was very fortunate to be able to try this baby carrier out and I’ll tell you why in a minute.
Let me first start by saying I’ve tried a number of baby carriers including Infantino’s Eurorider, BabyBjorn classic, and Wrap ‘n Wear to name a few. So, since I’m a baby carrier floosie I know a thing or two about ERGO’s competitors. I think for the most part ERGO really stands out from the crowd. While there are a lot of different carriers structured like ERGO and some big name companies are making their own versions of the ERGO, ERGO seems to have all their pieces in place. Read More
Chef, author, reality TV star, entrepreneur, mommy, and now workout buddy, Bethenny Frankel shows that no matter how busy you are you still have time to work out with her Body By Bethenny workout DVD.
Bethenny is joined by celebrity instructor Kristin McGee for this 40-minute yoga program. The purpose of the DVD is to stretch and strengthen your entire body following up with a 10-minute strength-training segment.
My thoughts on the introduction are that it is a sweet personal message from Bethenny; it’s a little scripted, but seems like her personality and own thoughts are behind it. She talks about how the workout is for everyone at every fitness stage, and that being a “Skinnygirl” isn’t about what size you are, it’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin. Read More

Yep, you guessed it, I’m one of those mommas or at least pretending to be one. A coupon lady. I’ve always had a small coupon book that I carried with me, but after hearing from friends that they walked out of grocery stores with hundreds of dollars in savings or that the store paid them after their shopping trip, I just couldn’t resist.
The only problem was that I didn’t know where to start. So I found The Couponizer and founder, wife, and mother, Amy Bergin and began my couponing ways. When I opened up my package I spread everything out so you can see what The Couponizer comes with. Here’s a picture of my Couponizer goodies: Read More
Kind of like my mommy journey, the book The Mommy Files: Secrets Every New Mom Should know presented by SheKnows.com and written by Jen Klein started off within a mom group. This is a great book for brand-new, first-time moms, but don’t expect to get much out of it if you’ve already been through motherhood.
When I first became a mom, no amount of babysitting or nannying prepared me quite enough for the responsibility and blessings that motherhood would bring. Just like all the other moms we were figuring it out as we went. That’s where this book comes in, if you want a little insight to motherhood, author Jen Klein has survived it all, changing diapers in not-so-quaint places to finding baby food in the most unlikely places.
The Mommy Files features quotes from both famous and real moms and adds some She Knows secrets from SheKnows.com, a site for women that covers many topics including parenting. This book reminds me a lot of what a girlfriend’s Cliff Notes for the book, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. From morning sickness to potty training and beyond The Mommy Files cover the details of having a baby, but it also covers the “nitty gritty,” that most books don’t touch on. Read More
Looking for those beachy locks? I have to say with my hair type it’s a hit or miss trying to get “surfer strands.” I’ve got wavy hair, so not quite straight, not quite curly so some would say I’ve got the best of both worlds, but in my curly world my hair just wants to be a frizzy mess, especially now that my hair has changed after giving birth to my girls. (If you’ve never had children often times hair falls out and texture, thickness, changes sometimes to the point where you find yourself asking if this is really your hair.)
I thought I would try a product from Blow, a new haircare line sold by my favorite hair product site Lock & Mane. Blow haircare line was created by the experts at Blow, the award winning New York Blow Dry Bar. The collection of products was specifically designed to give you better blow dry results at home. Free of sulfates and parabens that deplete hair and limit the life of your blow out. Never tested on animals. Read More
