I’ve shared quite a bit about my motherhood experience both here on my blog and over in my instagram feed (and these days on Snapchat as well). I try to be pretty honest without constantly oversharing. I try to be encouraging so other moms find a…
After breastfeeding three babies I feel like I've discovered a few nuggets of wisdom that I wish I could have told myself the first time around.

Living in Los Angeles, I know how lucky I am to be a mom in a city with great weather 95% of the time. And with great weather come lots of cool places to visit that are mostly outdoors. I posted these a while ago but many of you are new to reading so I […]

A huge thank you to Molly Sims for including Oh Lovely Day as one of her top 10 Mommy Blogs to Follow! I'm honored that she found help and comfort as a new mom from my stories, tips and recommendations, because that is exactly why I share my momma related posts on Oh Lovely Day. Motherhood really does take a village, and sometimes the virtual village you find can help as much as your real life one. I love knowing that I might be a small part of some of your support villages too :) Check out all of her picks here: http://www.mollysims.com/parenting/10-mommy-blogs-to-follow-now/

You’ve heard the phrase “always a bridesmaid” — well, I’m the boy mom version of that. Always a boy mom, never a girl. And I’m ok with that, really I am (maybe 10% of me still dreams of a baby girl…) But as a blogger who gets to work with and learn about…

If you follow me on instagram, you have probably seen me share a lot about our struggles with colic and infant reflux with my third son Quincy. I spent a lot of time researching online and looking for answers and tips when we were in the thick of it, so I thought I would share our experience -- what symptoms Quincy had, what worked for us to help him, and 7 tips and products that made a big difference. Maybe one of you is going through the same thing and maybe this could bring some help to you. If you have a super fussy or screamy baby and you don't know why, this might be what is going on with you too. http://www.ohlovelyday.com/2016/06/tips-dealing-infant-acid-reflux.html #momtips   #infantreflux   #colic

Embracing Your Postpartum Body

It’s sooooo hard for most of us to like our bodies (or not totally hate our bodies) after we have a baby. Even those blessed with amazing genes and tiny postpartum bodies are probably not loving them right after having a baby. Things aren’t the same.…
