So far, we have taken a look at how to help new parents, tips and resources for taking care of babies, and feeding baby during the first year.

Baby’s First Big Moments

Newborn Picture with Siblings

From the birth of your baby to your baby’s first words, your baby is constantly changing. Your baby is constantly experiencing new milestones and developing new parts of his/her brain and body. As new parents, we are excited to watch them grow and develop and document the process along the way. Together, with posts my good friends and the most popular posts on the internet, I hope to provide you with resources and tips that will help you during your baby’s first year.

Learning and understanding your baby’s milestones can feel overwhelming and if you are like me, can feel like  a daunting process to weed out the “good” information out there.
