Yesterday I talked briefly about bedtime routines and I got some messages asking for advice! If your bedtime routine feels more like a battle than a thing of beauty here are some things to take take stock of. - ⭐️How old is baby? And are you following age appropriate wake windows and number of naps per day? ⭐️Could baby be under or overtired for bed? ⭐️Has bedtime always been an issue or is this a recent development? ⭐️Is there any chance a developmental milestone could be going on? (I'm thinking 4 month sleep regression vibes ) ⭐️Have you started allowing baby to fall asleep independently? ⭐️Is baby's room dark enough? ⭐️Are there any outside distractions you can eliminate? - Taking your bedtime routine from dreadful to delightful can be done!! Asking yourself some of these questions is a good place to start. DM me to see if I can help 🌙😴🌙 . . . . . . #calmdownbabysleep #bedtimeroutine #bedtimeroutinetips #babyroutine #babysleeptips #sleepregressionsucks #babysleepexpert #babysleeptraining #sleeptracker #naptrapped #sleeptrainingsuccess #naptimenow #motherhoodjourney #momlifestruggles #sleepbetter #unitedmotherhood #wakewindows #naptimehustle #naptimeisthebesttime #naptimenow #naptimes #eatplaysleep #eatplaysleeprepeat #parentingtalk #parentinginfo #overtired #realparenthood #overtiredbaby #parenthoodlife #dailyparenthood

‘My baby is only sleeping 10 hours across naps and night time. Is this Normal?' . . The answer is that if they are generally happy in the day, and appear healthy and are gaining weight, then they are probably absolutely fine. They just have low sleep needs. . . However, there may be something else going on if any of these things are true: ⁣ ✔️ they are consistently sleeping less than 10 hours across naps and nights combined AND ✔️ they are crying and irritable for more than 2 hours each day ✔️they are not gaining weight ⁣ If any or all of these are true it may be worth investigating further as there could be an underlying issue that is causing their poor sleep and irritability. . . Here are some of the common things that could be happening: . . ⭐️ Feeding problems such as supply problems, shallow latch, poor bottle feeding technique or tongue tie. If any of these things are affecting your baby it can have a negative affect on their behaviour and worsen sleep. . . ⭐️ Reflux. This is where a weak lower oesophageal sphincter means that the stomach contents travel back up the oesophagus, and can sometimes cause pain and vomiting. The amount to which a baby is affected differs, but if you suspect your little one has this you should seek help. . . ⭐️ Cows Milk Protein Allergy or Intolerance. Allergy to cows milk seems to be on the rise, and can cause unsettledness in babies. The treatment is total exclusion of dairy products but most babies grow out of it in time. . . ⭐️ Functional Lactose Overload. This is when a mother has a generous supply of breast milk and the baby is getting too much of the sugary milk and not enough cream. A local breastfeeding support group or IBCLC can help you with breastfeeding strategies that dial down the milk supply in line with your babies needs. ⁣ Please do make sure that you reach out for support if you suspect your little one has any of these or any other underlying medical condition. Quite often the issue can be resolved quickly once diagnosed and you can get on with enjoying your baby. ⁣ Enjoy these tips?

Not everyone’s struggles are front and center. It’s easy to scroll through social media and think everyone has it easier than you. Perception is deceiving. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Welcome to my reality. Welcome to my daily struggles. I have several autoimmune disorders. I’m Anemic. I have Raynauds. And they’re looking into my Thyroid right now. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I also struggle with Sciatica & Scoliosis - if I don’t take care of these things through proper care, liquid collagen, supplementation, and exercises I will be in pretty intense chronic pain. Klinton has been my rock assisting in proper care and treatments, sitting up at night when intense pain is present and helping me get comfortable enough to sleep. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Weekly I go for B12 injections - last week I went for several tests and today in addition to my routine injections I had multiple injections in my neck due to very constricted muscles and swelling that have lead to consistent headaches and a list of other struggles. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today’s pain from injections was off the charts. I cried instantly upon injection and took it easy the rest of the day. Over the year I’ve increased how I take care of my body and become even more serious about being healthy. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I don’t miss taking my vitamins. I focus on the foods I eat and what I don’t eat. And for those who see someone who is tiny, please don’t shout “eat a cheeseburger.” Don’t make comments that they look unhealthy or that they are too skinny. Don’t insist they eat sweets or if they excuse themself from eating certain foods don’t say things like “you can afford to eat it.” “Come on eat it you won’t get fat.” ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ There are reasons a person with autoimmune disorders don’t eat certain foods or limit their in taking, because of the effect it has on their body. How it minimizes the absorption of their medications or how tired it can cause them to become. For most food rich in iron, iodine, omegas, probiotics, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, high quality proteins etc are the best for them. Sugar, alcohol, gluten, wheat, soy etc can do a number on how they feel. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’ve learned to appreciate my body. Whether I’m thin or too thin for others, whether I‘m more fit and muscular (cont 👇🏻 )

Some Monday evening motivation...🤔 Being a mom has its perks at times right?🤱🏻🥰 You get all of those smiles, snuggles, and looks of pure love from your kids. 💕 But with that comes fears too, am I right? With everything going on in the world; the anxiety, fear, and stress comes barreling toward you. “Oh, my gosh he pulled his mask down again while we’re in the store, I hope no one saw.” “Do I send her back to school, if schools even open up? What are we going to do if they don’t?” “Am I doing the right thing?” 🤷‍♀️ But you are strong momma, you will always make the best decision concerning your child. Those fears will always come up, Take a deep breathe and follow your heart and show some kindness to another momma because her struggle may not be yours❤️ #momlifestruggles #mommasofinstagram #mommaofboys #fears #strength #worry #school #craftymomsofinstagram #decisions #yourchildyourchoice #doyouforyou

We are a lot of things, we are anxious about everything that evolves our children, we're already thinking about tomorrow's lunch and tonight laundry loads. We are tired, exausted and we secretly wish for a relaxing bath somewhen but the Baby comes first, then the House and it's cleaning chorses, then the meals and the dishes with it, our husbands and yes our work life. We have bad days and good days, we might cry because sometimes it's too much to handle, and sometimes we feel the happiest in the world when surrounded whith our little family, we are like i said, a lot of things. We are the HAPPY BUSY MOMS ❤️. . . . . . #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog #dailyplanner #planner #plannercommunity #momsplanner #stayathomeplanner #cleaningplanner #gratitudejournal #journal #morninggratitude #morningaffirmation #goodmorning #grateful #workingmom #workingmomslife #busymoms #momlife #organizedmom #busyhappymoms #momlifestruggles #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog

To the exhausted mother who is running on empty It’s okay to say you need a break. It’s okay to cry. It’s okay to feel overwhelmed. It’s okay to not have your shit together every minute of everyday. It’s okay to have your house look like a tornado went through. It’s OKAY! Being a parent is HARD. It’s messy and it’s a whole lot of uncertainty and surprises. How many have planed out their day and then have it go to shit, and automatically write it off as a shitty day and let it bring you down 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️ We NEED to give ourselves grace. We need to STOP with the expectation we put on ourselves and the expectations society puts on us. And for the love of God STOP the fucken comparison game PLEASE. The only thing your doing there is hurting yourself. Now I’m not perfect I do ALL those things. I STRUGGLE hard. Some weeks are great and then BAM the flood of emotions comes hitting me like a wave and I feel paralyzed, my patients is at zero and the mean mommy comes out. What I have learned is when I start feeling those feels I need to STOP and ASK for help. I need to throw my hands up and say I NEED A BREAK. That doesn’t make me a bad mom. That makes me a human being. NO ONE can run at 100% I don’t have who you are. We ALL need breaks some times. So moms (parents ) give yourself grace, give yourself time, give yourself a break. And remember YOU ARE AMAZING! 💕

We are wrapping up our week spent focussed on using our TIME on purpose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your relationship with time? Do you think there is a lot? There is never enough? Is time a frenemy, can you trust it? Do you enjoy it? Do you pressure it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One thing that has helped me have a better relationship to time is to view it as a RESOURCE. Time is a resource I can allocate and be a good steward of. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✳️ When I do this, time SERVES ME, not the other way around. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last summer I released the How to Simplify Your Life Series (start at episode 30 on the Simple on Purpose Podcast ), and I shared this notion there. ➡️ If we want to be women who live ON PURPOSE, then we need to use our resources with purpose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This means our money, our energy, our time, our space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some of these resources are renewable, time is not one of them. We can't 'get more' time, we need to be very mindful about how we are using it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If this is something you want coaching on, feel free to DM for a 15$ Master Your Time Mini-Session. ➔ We will spend 30 minutes pinpointing your relationships to time and strategizing some tools you can use to be more proactive with your time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

He wakes up early from naps when I'm on calls, bangs on my keyboard any time I try to use the computer in front of him, smears peanut butter all over me when I attempt to wear anything but a t-shirt, and always keeps me on my toes.

Someone asked me why there are no recent pictures of Ivaan with me 🙊. Please see the ( swipe ) above pictures. You will get the reason 😆. . . What I understood, Ivaan is not photo friendly. Not every kids are same. Some are really amazing in front of camera, whereas some are like Ivaan 🙊.He is a super active kid, for him sitting in a place for 5 minutes is a big task. ( only when he plays with blocks, color pencils or pens he remains calm for a while😁 ). But we don't force him now rather let him do whatever he enjoys the most❤️❤️❤️. . #momlife #momlifebalance #momlifestruggles #kolkatabloggers #kolkatamomblogger #dallasmoms #indianmomblogger #instamemes #momespresso #kidsofinstagram #kidstopress #delhibloggers #memes #behindthescenes 🎬

I cherish every bedtime routine. The time is so special for us to connect and strengthen our bond.

The time is so precious and I'm so grateful we get to enjoy it together. - What are some of your favorite parts about bedtime routines?

#savepost . Today in office, one of my colleague asked me ‘Are you not well?’. Reason- My puffy face & dark circles beneath eyes. All thanks to my Toddler as currently we are dealing with “Toddler Sleep Regression”. . Although google par sab information available hai, but I thought to share what is this sleep regression? How it affects you & your kid? How I am dealing with it? Totally based on personal experience... Please do give it a read♥️ . My kid is 2.5 year old. Sleep struggles are result of developmental changes. It is their way of showing newfound independence in any way they can- and that includes controlling their own bedtime. . He not only refuses to sleep at night but for nap time in day too. The moment I start bedtime routine (which he is very well aware of ) he starts cribbing and shouts “no good night, no good night”. He simply runs away from bedroom. 🙈 After lots of struggle I manage to make him sleep somewhere in between 1 to 2AM that too without any nap time🙄. He wakes every 2 hours or so during night and takes effort to go back to sleep. As a result I am badly sleep deprived & tired.😞 . How I am dealing with it? Read below pointers: . 👉🏻No nap time. I try to keep him engaged in some physical activity like dancing on rhymes or playing with ball or playing hide & seek in house to make him feel tired. . 👉🏻At night I try to offer him dinner before 8:00PM. Some more playtime after that. In short try to make him feel tired. . 👉🏻Following bedtime routine as usual. Even though he refuses and gets cranky, shouts at top of his voice. But, I just try to calm him down by talking as much as I can. . 👉🏻Reading book of his choice. Even if he wants to read same book daily I happily repeats same words and expressions for him. . 👉🏻Playing with toy of his choice. Even if he demands to play with sand, dough or blocks by spreading them all over during bed time, I have no choice but to obey. So that he remains calm and I can ask him to sleep. #dontjudgemeplease . 👉🏻Finally singing his favourite rhyme by rocking him in my lap. Wait... mission may be or may not be accomplished yet😞. Continued in comments...

This is my reality... I’m posting this because I think there’s a stigma where a mom has to be perfect and have this perfect clean home, clean kid, clean pets, etc. Let me tell you something this not my reality. As much as I clean everyday I try to maintain everything organized, let’s face it it just doesn’t stay that way! I have a toddler, 2 kittens and 2 dogs! It’s like impossible to have a clean house. This obviously gets cleaned up and doesn’t stay the whole day like this ( most of the time ) but for whatever reason tomorrow will probably look like this again in some point of the day lmao Man though if you are a person who can keep it clean 24/7 I applaud you, and you need to tell me your secrets! Please! . . . . #messylife #realmomlife #momminainteasy #momlifestruggles #sahm #momlife #goodvibes #flashesofdelight #picoftheday #boymom #motherhoodunplugged #inspiration #lifestyleblogger #motivation #liveauthentic #candidchildhood #mommylife #honestmotherhood #joyfulmamas #motherhood #inbeautyandchaos #dailyparenting #momblogger #parenthood #acupofmotherhood #thehappynow #justmomlife #motherhoodintheraw #honestlymothering

👉🏼 CLIENT BRAG!!! 👈🏼⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ I had a client ask me recently, "How do I quit falling into these unhealthy behaviors...what can I do to stop them?"⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ My heart could sing at that question. 😍⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ I love my clients because they're HUNGRY. ⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ They're hungry for change.⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ They're hungry for freedom.⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ They're hungry for health and happiness in their families, friendships, and partnerships. ⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ And when my clients are hungry, they get RESULTS. And the results are the best part!!⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ This particular client is working on setting healthy boundaries for herself and for her kids. She's choosing to walk away from years of back-to-back boyfriends and quick "fixes" of emotional attachment, and to focus on building community that is encouraging and life-giving. 👏🏻⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ What she's really doing is this: choosing to go through the difficulty or rewriting old patterns so she can ditch the torment of living in unhealthy, dysfunctional relationships. ⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ And that's no joke!!!⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ She's DOING it. And I'm so proud to call her my client.⁣⁠⠀ ⁣⁠⠀ If you're wanting change like this but aren't sure how to get it, DM me and we'll figure out your path together. ⁣⁠⠀ ❤️⁠⠀

It's strange to think about it, but we are more than we think we are, our little children depend so much on us, we are more than "regular mom". We are HOME to their laughs and cries, their imaginary stories, and their deepest fears. I'm amazed every time my son comes to my arms without any reason and stays there for a moment, as he finds something else BEYOND LOVE and PROTECTION. WE ARE OUR FAMILIES HOME ❤️ . . . . . #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog #dailyplanner #planner #plannercommunity #momsplanner #stayathomeplanner #cleaningplanner #gratitudejournal #journal #morninggratitude #morningaffirmation #goodmorning #grateful #workingmom #workingmomslife #busymoms #momlife #organizedmom #busyhappymoms #momlifestruggles #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog

Sunday in bed with my baby 💜👼🏼💙Thought I would share a little personal story about our journey with sleep so far. - When we brought Wally home from the hospital I thought we'll swaddle him and he'll sleep in his bassinet. But, that didn't end up going as planned. Night 1 he was in bed with us. It felt so natural to me. I was in heaven with my newborn and I knew he needed to be close to me at all times. - The next morning I researched co-sleeping and found out how to do it as safely as possible and lots of positive information in support of it. I was 100% confident we had found our solution for sleep. I even bought an expensive co-sleeper to give Wally his own little space in our bed. - The arrangement worked great at first. It made nursing throughout the night so much easier. I felt an extreme sense of peace and happiness with our little family sharing a bed. - About 2 weeks after our co-sleeping journey began things started to change. I started suffering the effects of sleep deprivation due to the normal feeding needs of a newborn but also because when he was sleeping I was up a lot worrying/making sure he was OK in our bed. - During the day it was the same story, naps on me or next to me. I had completely given up on swaddling. Suddenly the whole situation wasn't as blissful and I knew we couldn't sustain co-sleeping for the long haul. - I support any mamas choice to co-sleep. It's something I can totally relate to and understand! It just wasn't a path that worked for us. - We ended up working with a sleep consultant who provided us with the knowledge and confidence we needed. Wally still napped on me a ton, I still nursed him to sleep every day. But, I was also able to use his bassinet and sleep without worry in my own bed. - Ultimately, what we needed was balance! If you do too, DM me and let's talk about it 💙💤🛌

I think it's time to go back to the gym again. I love exercising, it makes me feel good and therefore I am happier and more optimistic. And also it's great to get back to that pre-pregnancy body too . . . . . #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog #dailyplanner #planner #plannercommunity #momsplanner #stayathomeplanner #cleaningplanner #gratitudejournal #journal #morninggratitude #morningaffirmation #goodmorning #grateful #workingmom #workingmomslife #busymoms #momlife #organizedmom #busyhappymoms #momlifestruggles #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog

To us mothers, breastfeeding is not only simply feeding our babies time to time. It is a bonding between a mother and her child which moms cherish forever, no matter how hard the journey was 🥰💖 Before I became a mom, I used to think that it is a natural transition which always runs smooth. There is nothing to prepare ahead✨✨ But the reality is different. May be to some mothers it is butter smooth, most moms at some point find breastfeeding hard. I am also one of them 😓 On top of that, I had some additional issues. Almost 10% moms have flat nipples, some have inverted. I really didn't have any idea about their existence before I found myself to be one of them right when I started to breastfeed my daughter. Oh! Those were damn tough days🙆. But we overcome it, not smoothly, but we did!🦾 If you are also one of them, don't feel stressed out💆. It is possible to breastfeed with flat nipples. In my recent post, I have shared some basic know-hows and tips regarding breastfeeding your baby with flat nipples💕💕 Head over ↗️ to my bio to learn more. I hope it helps you with your journey ❤️ #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingtips #flatnipples #feedingwithflatnipples #mommyonarollercoaster #momlifestruggles #momlifeishard #instamomy #momsofinstagram #momblogger #momlife #motherhood #girlmom #momblogger #indianmombloggercommunity #indianmomblogger #newmomtips #momblog

Being a parent is HARD, sometimes I feel insecure about my mother skills: I'm I doing it right, what if I'm doing it all wrong. Our anxiety and our fears can influence our children without even knowing that we teach them to be anxious, angry, and insecure. Managing ourselves is the first step to raise confident and independent children ❤️ . . . . . #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog #dailyplanner #planner #plannercommunity #momsplanner #stayathomeplanner #cleaningplanner #gratitudejournal #journal #morninggratitude #morningaffirmation #goodmorning #grateful #workingmom #workingmomslife #busymoms #momlife #organizedmom #busyhappymoms #momlifestruggles #blog #blogger #mombloggers #momblog #momwhoblog https://bit.ly/3gOkhVg

It was a very emotional week getting the house ready to be put on the market today, but yesterday was by far the hardest. My mom, sister and I took the four kiddos to see our childhood house for the first and last time, to say goodbye to the place where our mom and us endured a lot of pain in our lives. I took a photo with my littles in my old room to remind myself how hard I’ve worked to be where I am today along with my mom and sister. Luckily us three girls ended our Mother’s Day in a very specific spot eating ice cream and day dreaming of what’s to come! There is some crazy news coming guys! Keep your eyes and ears open 🥰😘 . #motherhoodintheraw #thisismotherhood #realmotherhood #lifeasmama #theeverydaymom #motherhoodthroughig #messy_motherhood #honestmom #honestmama #motherhoodunveiled #parenthood_unveiled #momswhoblog #ohheymamas #theeverymom #magicofmotherhood #embraceyourmotherhood #mommymode #momswhowork #honestmommin #honestlymothering #momminainteasy #themommydiary #hotmessmama #honestmommin #themommydiary #mynameismama #lifeasmama #mommylifestyle #momhood #mommymoments #momlifestruggles #momlifestyle #mamalifestyle

🇺🇸Only picture with baby Eladia in my uniform, and my last! (She was not sleeping here, just taking a rest inbetween cries 😅 ) . 🇺🇸I was very lucky to be retired with enough maternity leave and regular leave that I rolled straight into being a stay at home mom for 18 months until I went back to school/work. .🇺🇸But I was NOT prepared emotionally or financially for being a stay at home mom. .🇺🇸I was someone who was used to life on the go, literally just go back from Japan 5 months prior to giving birth. And then all of a sudden I had this crying, inconsolable infant and could never leave my home. . 🇺🇸Needless to say I was bored. And my boredom fueled my spending. And spent I did. Thousands and thousands of useless shit to entertain myself and try to make life feel a little less miserable. (Read: It did not work ) .🇺🇸If I knew what I knew now (wouldn’t that solve all our problems ?! ) I would have done things SO differently . . 🇺🇸Check out my new blog post to some of my insights on saving money while being a SAHM!

I’m sitting on the bus. Tears are running down my cheeks. I long for the weekend we had. I long for the smiles, the laughs. I long for it all. This past weekend was incredible. It was incredible for many many reasons but mainly because Luna was happy and didn’t throw a single tantrum. I’m not entirely sure why this weekend was tantrum-free but I suspect it’s because Luna was with us, her parents. She was surrounded by love, calmness and just a lot of positive energy. And not that she’s not surrounded by love when she’s at daycare, but it must be stressful for her when she’s there all day from 7:30am until 4:45pm. Oh gosh. I feel ashamed for sharing how long she’s at daycare. I feel like her tantrums are her way of telling me, “Mom, you left me there all day. I’ve missed you”. Maybe it sounds silly but that’s just how I view it and my heart is broken. . . . . . . #workingmom #workingmoms #workingmomlife #workingmomproblems #workingmomkind #montrealmom #canadianmom #canadianmoms #canadianmama #momlifeishard #myhonestmotherhood #toddlermomlife #honestmommin #honestmom #beingamomisthebest #momlifestruggles #motherhoodisdarling #motherhoodintheraw
