Sweet Peas, Pods & Papas: All About Birth, B@@bs & Babies
Happy holidays to all of our readers! In order to spend a mindful, intentional holiday season with our four sweet peas, new posts are suspended for the rest of the month. We will be back in 2016 with more fresh and timely posts about
pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.
would love to hear what is on your mind – please leave me a comment with
content you would like to see addressed or updated, or any questions you would
like to see answered on our VLOG series, Q&A with SPB.
Since this is the season of sun and surf, I
want to share a couple of finds that have served us well to keep our Sweet Peas
from getting sun burned. Nothing makes
me feel less adequate as a mother than the indictment of burnt pink skin on my Sweet
Pea. The worst is a burn that happens on
a cloudy day! Keep in mind that the clouds only block out the light from the sun – the
ultraviolet rays that cause sun burn can still travel through the cloud
cover. I hope this info can help you
avoid that feeling of utter and complete Mom Fail.
HAPPY First week of summer! I wish you lots of shade and cool breezes...we are loving our mister tube that Coach Bruss bought from Lowe's Home Improvement - it makes sitting outside while the kids play bearable!!

Welcome to the weekend, AZ Families!! For those of you that are expecting *please* stay hydrated - take water with you everywhere! If you are breastfeeding a nursling, take care of you and your Sweet Pea by staying hydrated - dress in loose layers of light colored, breathable clothing so that you can add or subtract layers depending on whether or not you are in air conditioning.
All the farmer's markets are starting and ending earlier - have fun and stay in the shade if you are out and about :)
of the treasures I brought home for the kiddos from the amazing Club MomMe
Spring Family Fest was a homemade, hand-crafted lotion bar from the Estella Grace
display. I got to visit with Amy’s
assistant, Jenelle, at the event; Amy was chatting with another customer when I stopped by. Amy was kind enough to do a
virtual interview with me and share these beautiful images of her products, all
of them hand-crafted and made with love in the USA.
SPB readers will want to consider using her handmade lotion bars as part of, "avoiding harmful substances" during pregnancy, or maybe the aromatherapy candles for use during relaxation practice, labor, or the postpartum period to add a little lift to your days.
Welcome to the week - hope you have a great one!!
