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!
I have to make a confession but when it comes to feeding my children I have been known to go completely batty. It is one of the common factors between me, my clients and all my mom friends and that is that being totally obsessed with the amount of weight our babies are gaining and how much food they are consuming. It is some crazy instinctual thing and I cannot tell you the number of hours I have stressed over trying to figure out how many ounces were coming out of each boob, how many table spoons of rice cereal I think were consumed, whether I packed in enough fruits and vegetables into a day and trying to justify a hot dog as qualifying as legitimate meat.
I have the great pleasure to be working with Pampers and recently was invited to their Cincinnati headquarters for Bloggers Day. My work with them so far has entailed supporting the new Limited Edition Prints that Pampers launched for this summer and they had invited a group of top 14 mommy (and dad) bloggers to design their own prints for diapers for me to judge and to possibly be used on diapers in the future.
One of my goals for the months ahead is to bring MomPrep to as many parents and parents–to-be as possible. I have the privilege to work with so many amazing experts helping me to provide my clients with the education and support they want in the months leading up to having a baby.
I think it is a great thing that mothers want to be more educated about their health during pregnancy and about how to have healthy pregnancies. We are no longer throwing back espressos and puffing on the old cigarettes during those nine months, but are instead eating better, staying active and becoming more educated than ever before. However, pregnancy is also not the time to take the health focus to an extreme by going on a juice cleanse or training for a marathon. Balance and moderation are key!
So there is no denying it, I am officially addicted to sugar. I love it, I love anything made with it -- chocolate, jelly beans, cookies -- I love the way it looks, and I just love it. The whole office is addicted. I’m sitting at the airport waiting on my flight and everywhere I look is sugar.
I know it goes without saying that having a baby certainly creates change in a couple’s lives. One of the most major changes is also one of the least comfortable to discuss: how you spend and save money, or your finances. It is estimated that the average cost to raise a child from zero to 18 is just over $225,000 (with obvious variations depending on geographic and social situation).
