Gaslighting women, especially Mamas, needs to end!

I am fiercely protective of the Mamas that I work with, especially when they tell me that their concerns were disregarded/dismissed and were told that there’s nothing wrong by their primary healthcare provider.

Pink Shirt day is nothing more than virtue signaling

Yesterday was Pink Shirt day… and my son refused to wear one. He said: 1 “what’s the point, if the bullies are also wearing them?” 2 “nothing has changed!” And here’s the big elephant in the room that we are not talking about, just how rampant bullying really is! It is worse now than ever!…

Why won't my baby stay asleep?

Why does my child wake up 20 mins after they fall asleep?

Does your baby/child fall asleep quickly, only to wake 20 mins later? ⠀ This is very common. This is a sign that your baby/child is overtired.
