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'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>
I am thrilled I was invited to host an evening to celebrate the book "The Super Adventures of Sophie and the City-All in a Day’s Work" written by Kelly Florio Kasouf (in the pic with me). The evening and the book were a perfect marriage between fashion and parenting (two things you all know I hold near and dear) and so I couldn't be happier to tell you more about this fabulous children's book.
Ever Felt Bullied Over Breastfeeding?
Breastfeeding advocates love to tell everyone breast is best, but some moms need to use formula. Here's why moms who don't breast feed shouldn't be vilified.
