The snack struggle is real…

Having an infant. Constant bottle feeds. Every two hours (sometimes more). Cluster feeding. It’s all such a mess. But in all reality, I didn’t realize how easy it was when I just had one thing to do: feed my child. As my toddler son has grown, I’ve introduced more and more foods into his diet. However,…

SmartGames Puzzle Games {Review}

Before Candy Crush and other popular games you can play on cell phones and tablets, kids played regular old board games. When I was little, Monopoly Junior, Shoots and Ladders, and Candyland were some of my favorites (Monopoly is still my favorite as an adult). And now that my daughter is old enough to understand…

NurturMe Baby Food {Review}

I was recently asked to sample and review NurturMe blended dry cereal meals with my 8 month old and I was thrilled for the opportunity. Have you strolled down the baby food aisle lately?! As a new mom walking down the baby food aisle, it can be overwhelming with all the options for your little one. I…

ergoPouch Summer Baby Sleeping Bag {Review}

My little ones never stay covered at night, especially my youngest! He is constantly tossing, turning, and throwing things out of his crib. In the winter, we used a Halo Sleepsack. But for summer, I could not find one that would keep him at the right temperature. More times than I would like, he would wake up soaked…

Feeling Green: A Guide to Morning Sickness

What is the mantra? “It will all be worth it in the end.” Instead of puking, you’re getting puked on. Seems like a fair trade. **I am not a doctor, nor will any of this solve morning sickness entirely. If you feel your morning sickness is not able to be managed, contact your doctor.** Statistics say…

Should I Ask For Help When Trying to Conceive?

How long is too long to TTC without a doctor’s help? Obviously I am no doctor, but if you’re asking yourself this question, maybe my opinion will help ease your mind! A simple Google search will probably lead you to an answer like these: 1 year of trying if you’re under the age of 35 6…

Learning Phonics with Letterland

With the school year starting, some schools have already started (where the heck did summer go?!), kids are getting back into the swing of things with homework, field trips,  and learning lots of new things. My oldest is starting her second year of preschool next month and I have to admit, we slacked off this…

The Amber Monkey

Let me preface this article: I am generally not someone who utilizes holistic approaches to medicine. In addition, this article is in no way written by a medical expert. Please consult your pediatrician prior to utilizing Baltic Amber. My son started teething pretty early. Now, at 18 months old, he’s still teething. At around 7…

A Perfect Alternative to Plastic Tableware: Brinware

When shopping for tableware for children, you’re bombarded with plastic everything. Plastic plates, plastic cups, plastic silverware. It’s all plastic. But you don’t know what’s in that plastic. Most of it is now BPA free, which I’m guessing makes it safer but you still can’t microwave it and I personally wouldn’t put hot food on a…

Family Vacation. What is “vacation”?!?!

Merriam Webster defines vacation as “a period of time that a person spends away from home, school, or business usually in order to relax or travel.” Okay, so we have the first part down. Definitely away from home and business, but definitely not the last few words,”relax”? Not sure I have even figured out what that…

Sophie la girafe: A must for little ones

Teething babies are the worst. Plan and simple, teething sucks. Sometimes you get lucky and have a baby that doesn’t show he or she is in pain, so you’d never even know they’re teething at all. My first daughter was like that; you’d never know she was cutting a tooth because she was still happy-go-lucky…

Egg Retrieval Tips and Tricks

My husband and I recently went through our first round of IVF. Eventually I will be writing about the whole process more thoroughly, but I had a good friend have her egg retrieval surgery today, and as I was giving her some advice, I realized I should write all this down while I’m thinking about…

First Look and Find Books {Review}

As I’ve written before, my almost four year old loves books. I love that she got her love of reading and books from my mom (she would read 2-3 thick books a week!). My daughter also loves seek and find books! A few months ago, I was going through a box of my old belongings and…

Sashka Co. Bracelet {Review}

Five of the Burrito Buzz Moms received an awesome offer for us each to review a bracelet from Sashka Co. I connected with the company via Twitter because I was intrigued by their adorable bracelets that appeared to be perfect for moms. I personally am not a big jewelry wearer. I have a few nice…

Freshly Picked Moccasins: The perfect shoe for little feet

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with shoes. I vividly remember getting a pair of The Little Mermaid velcro tennis shoes for Christmas when I was almost four years old. I was in love with those shoes and literally wore them until my toes popped through the front. There are pictures of me…

Putting my Career on Hold

Parenting requires sacrifice, that’s a given. Most often, our sacrifices are merely based on how we prioritize our lives. In my own, the health, happiness, and general well-being of my son is first, followed closely by the health of my relationship with my husband. After those two priorities, my list becomes a little jumbled and…

8 Annoying Toys for Babies & Toddlers

When you become a parent, you also become an expert on all things that are annoying. It just comes with the territory. I think toy companies create the most annoying toys for babies and toddlers to drive their parents insane. Literally. Whether or not you buy these annoying toys, or if you try to keep…

Educational & Parent Approved Shows On Netflix For Toddlers

When BK#1 was tiny, I was set in my ways that she would never be glued to the TV and that I wouldn’t allow her to watch TV all the time. All the flipping time. Little did I know, I was in a for a rude awakening! Toddlerhood quickly kicked in! Shortly after she turned one, her…

Made by Mary: Personalized Jewelry {Review}

Like most moms and grandmothers, I love showing off my little ones and the fact that I am a mother. I want the whole world to know that I am the mom of two of the sweetest, most beautiful girls on the planet. Of course I plaster their cute little faces all over my Instagram…

Stop trying to one-up the struggle…

  The comparison of struggle. Sometimes, it seems like parents are wanting to complain in a way that makes it seem like one person has it worse than the other. Like, “oh, your baby doesn’t sleep? Well, my baby is teething horribly which is so much worse.” But I’ve said it before, where’s the empathy?…

Seventh Generation Coconut Care Diaper Cream {Review}

I have always used coconut oil when my babies have gotten a diaper rash. I don’t always start with it, but if I can’t kick a rash with other creams, then I always slather it on before calling the doctor. Both my littles have always had really sensitive skin and they get a rash anytime…

The Cibo Placemat {Product Review}

I never thought I would be so thrilled about a placemat but this product is awesome! Free of Phthalates, BPA and harmful dyes catch-all placemat comes in four adorable colors and sticks to virtually every hard surface, making it versatile for at home and for travel. I first asked myself how in the heck this thing…

How To Be There For Your Infertile Friend

So your friend opened up to you and shared that she’s having problems getting pregnant. (And if you’re a good friend, this will happen. Infertility is way more common than you probably think). Your first instinct is probably, ‘Crap! What do I say? What do I do to help her?’ As a member of the infertility club, I’m…
