Savvy Moms Baby Planning

You're pregnant, yay, now what? Do you have a never ending to do list and a 9 month deadline that is creeping up on you? Is your head spinning because it is on overload with what baby products and gear are the best? There are so many options out there for the mommy to be and the new baby. That is good but it makes decision time that much harder. You can spend hours researching strollers, bottles, cribs, birthing classes, delivery…

Check, Please! Tips for Dining Out with Children

Before my husband and I had our daughters, we enjoyed dining out at least 3 to 4 times per week. When our first daughter was born, fear set in. We spent months eating at home until we finally worked up the courage to take our baby to a restaurant. And when we eventually ventured out for our first time in a restaurant, I feared fussing, ear splitting shrieks, and our abandoning dinner and running for the door.


Sound familiar? Most parents know that taking babies and children…

Step Away from the Games and Get Active

When I was younger, I had rarely picked up a video game. Growing up we had an Atari 2600, a Sega Genesis, and finally a Nintendo system. But it wasn't something that my sisters or I did on a daily basis.

When my husband and I started dating, we would spend a large chunk of our time playing various games on multiple systems. I found I loved playing and so did he. So it comes to no surprise that the kiddo inherited our love of video games.…

Traveling with Baby Doesn't Have to be Hard

In today’s world, traveling to visit family and friends is common, especially around the holidays. And, if you love travel as much as I do, introduce your baby to it, as soon as possible, to get them accustomed to the sites and sounds of airports, train stations, and perhaps long car drives. I had both of my babies on a plane by the time they were 3 months old. It’s all doable and can be quite fun. Here are some recommendations for organizing travel with baby.

Will We Ever Eat Out Again?

I'm beginning to think I should change my profile to "food mom" on this site as it seems I only post about eating. I swear I do more than just eat and feed my kids. I need to choose different topics to share. Oh well, I'll set my reputation aside today because I wanted to address one of those new-parent mysteries:kids in restaurants. I know, not exactly a heavy topic for a hospital website, but if you're anything like we were as new parents, getting out is very important.

I remember when I… Continue

Simple Concepts on How To Be Fit Before, During and After Pregnancy

I have lots of new moms joining our programs after baby. The constant theme is, “I need to get back into shape after baby.” This is SO important not only for mom, because she feels better about herself,decreases her chances of post partum depression, and heals much quicker, but

also for baby and family! She will be able to run and play with the kids, get up and down off the floor 1000 times a day, and purely enjoy life with her babies. But I think it is…
