To be or not to be...a stay at home parent.

It is a hard decision for some and an easy one for others.  There are many factors that come in to play when deciding whether you will become a stay at home parent.  For some it all comes down to finances.  For others, it is about maintaining and furthering their career.  And still for some, they just couldn't imagine going back to work after the baby is born.  There is no right or wrong choice.  We found some great articles about this very personal decision.

Nursing in Style and Comfort!

Nursing covers don't have to be ugly or frumpy stiff pieces of fabric.  Consider wearing a simple nursing wrap or a nursing scarf.  These look just like your regular clothes but are big enough to help you breastfeed discreetly.   The nursing wrap shown features a cool "One Lucky Mother" tattoo inspired design on the back.  See...not frumpy at all!
