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!
Baby Showers can be an expensive proposition especially for the people hosting the shower. In order to keep the budget manageable I recommend throwing the shower at one of the host’s homes and following the three Cs of baby showers: Cupcakes, Candy & Cocktails
I often joke that we are the Pope Traveling Family circus because I have to travel extensively for my work and I often take my children (and my husband) with me. Airplanes and hotels can actually be a lot of fun even on a work trip because all the usual rules (well some at least) can go out the window and instead the kids can splash water all over the bathrooms, have chicken fingers for every meal, go on adventures with Mommy around the hotel room corridors and even come with mommy to work!
Finding childcare for your children is both one of the most important decisions you will have to make as well as one of the hardest. Whether you work out of the home or in the home (I believe stay at home moms work too, we are all working moms in one way or another) and you decide a Nanny is the right childcare choice for your family, I have compiled a list of thoughts I hope will help you navigate through the interview process as well as help you deal with any potentially difficult situations and ultimately find the best Nanny for you and your children.
This blog was inspired by a question from one of my Twitter followers @sweetcaron. Let me start by saying the very first bag I packed to go to the hospital to deliver my oldest son was by no means a standard to live by. I have come a long way since then and I am pleased to say my bag this time around was packed perfectly. The first time I had some great crime books (I kid you not, I thought I would have time to catch up on some much needed beach reading) and Skinny Jeans (yes feel free to mock me, I thought I’d be able to wear them home from the hospital).
Being a Maternity Concierge I am often asked how to solve many of the problems and concerns that come up every day as a parent. While I pride myself on the fact that I often have a pretty good idea of how to help, and if I don't I will certainly help figure it out with the experts I have at my finger tips and the amazing resources I know are out there but can often be hard to navigate. I want to reassure you all that I still worry just as much as all of you.
With the plethora of amazing equipment, gadgets and toys available it is often very difficult to navigate through the baby registry landscape. Many future parents ask me what I think are the best things to register for and what things can simply wait until your baby is no longer a newborn. I have compiled a general list of ten things I think are must haves for any baby registry as well as some don’ts.
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.
