From what's happening in maternity fashion to what's happening in the world of motherhood. Here's where you can get updates info and insights - all straight from Rosie!
This week on Pregnant in Heels I make the rather adventurous decision to take 2 client couples for a baby moon couples retreat to the Dominican Republic. I found myself thinking a lot on this retreat why on earth was I leading a couples retreat when my main focus is always pregnancy and parenting? Since when did "couples" become part of that mix?
Almost every day I receive questions from moms who are dealing with sleep issues with their children. This is a topic that I take very seriously because if a child is having sleep issues it is likely affecting the entire household. So for parents that are frustrated and exhausted I have a great blog for you today by MomPrep Expert Dr. Whitney Roban with an introduction to sleep training.
This week's episode of pregnant in heels featured the very emotionally charged subject of vaccinations. I have to admit I often hesitate to write about the subject for fear of upsetting people and as you all know that's just not my usual style! I know those that are anti-vaccination come from a very good place but as you saw from the show I completely disagree with them and stand firm on the fact that with the evidence we have today, the only right choice is to go ahead with vaccinations.
This week’s episode brings to light a topic that I know a lot of parents struggle with - selecting godparents/guardians for your kids. It is a topic that is emotional and stressful on many families and can be the source of heated discussions and debates. I think it is oh so important to face difficult tasks like this as parents for the sake of our kids. It’s not easy to imagine not being around for them but we must make sure we have a plan because as parents it is our responsibility to take care of our children even if the worst happens and we aren’t there to take care of them ourselves. I have asked Jacoba Urist, Esq, MomPrep expert, lawyer & family finance writer to share with you her thoughts on selecting a guardian.
As a mom of three I know how long it has taken for me to find the brands I love and trust for the most important things in the world to me - my kids. I am very critical when it comes to the products we bring into our home. I read the research; discuss with friends and experts before I try something new. I bring this same critical eye to the companies I choose to work with.
So Pregnant in Heels Season 2 has kicked off with some controversial topics. From home birth to placenta eating, elimination communication and pregnancy Kama Sutra, I certainly have everything covered in this season it's crazy town!
I am also pregnant during this season (though I had our baby girl Vivienne Madison Pope on Sunday May 13) and while I may not request placenta smoothies, I have to admit I had the same anxiety as the rest of my clients. We all want to be the best parents we can be and sometimes this anxiety makes us do or request crazy things....
<p>As we are preparing for the arrival of our new baby girl, I thought it was a great time to discuss with Dr. Jen Canter how she managed the big transition of a new sibling with her kids. She was able to provide some great bits of advice for parents who are adding to their family.</p>
What I Didn't Know About Co-Sleeping Safety
Families who swear by attachment parenting think co-sleeping is the best for mom and baby, but research shows the risks of SIDS may outweigh the potential benefits.
