Avie has struggled with eczema for what seems like her entire life.  I know she isn't yet 2 years old- but that statement's drama is adequate.  Especially after I've felt utterly hopeless while watching Avie claw at her own skin, well after it's already bleeding from h...

When it comes to eating healthy, I think we've all heard the old adage; "eat colorful foods". Finding those colors every day can be tough, we all know that green veggies are good for you- but, where do we find orange, yellow, red and even purple?

Or black?

I can't take credit for this activity... but I WILL take credit for sharing the information with you.

You're welcome.

I had read about this on but didn't put it to use until the other day.  Then I kicked myself for not trying it sooner.

We used to call these Avie-cados, when Avie was first starting to eat beca...

Not only is it hard just being a parent, but some of us get the added complication of having a child with special needs.  These needs can be anything from medical to behavioral and all that is in between.  While I can only speak for the medical needs category, I think...

Babies with Cystic Fibrosis need extra salt.  Your CF doctor (probably the dietitian) will tell you how much salt, per 24 hr period, to put in the baby's formula.

Salt the formula?!  As if it doesn't already taste disgusting!

It can seem overwhelming when you are require...

When Avalyn was in the NICU, a nurse told me that sleep was important to growth.  She said that without proper sleep, my baby wouldn't grow like she should.  From that moment on, it became my mission to make sure my daughter got the sleep she needed. It's also importan...
