One of the not so fond memories I have from being the Mom of a newborn, the second time around, is that my poor little baby had to deal with “thrush.” What is that you may ask… According to KidsHealth: “Oral thrush is a very common infection in infants that causes irritation in and around a baby’s mouth. It is caused by the overgrowth of a yeast (a type of fungus) called Candida albicans.” I remember when I first noticed that my baby son had something that didn’t look quite right going on in his...

I enjoyed a really wonderful Christmas and New Year holiday week, with my family on the West Coast recently…and while it’s back to work and back to reality, I can’t help but continue to bask and smile at how awesome it all turned out! I mean the term “holidays” often conjure up visions of stress, fatigue and even panic – especially as parents, along with all the warm, fuzzy notions of the magic of the season. Well, this time around we decided to pack it up and fly west for a week to be with my side...

The time has come… I kept telling myself we’d wait until after Christmas vacation and for the new year before I’d “make” my baby give up the pacifier. Now is the perfect time, right? We got him off the bottle months ago, he’s graduated to a sippy cup, so the natural progression should be to break his binkie habit! I haven’t been really pressed to force the issue, I mean up to this point he only “officially” has 5 teeth! Yup, 5 teeth on the brink of being 18 months, but over the weekend,...

This fall I took on the daunting task of putting together holiday gift guides for everyone and everything on your list… and presented them on my show. Shopping may seem fun and easy, but it’s actually pretty tough to select items and make suggestions to make sure you cover all the demographics and range of tastes for all kinds of individuals! All that being said, I think I did a pretty good job to help someone out with some “bright” gift ideas…. All the video clips and list links are below… Angela...

When I became pregnant and we invested in a body pillow designed for an expecting mother… I fell in LOVE! The “Snoozer” Dreamweaver pillow was truly heaven sent. It’s a 100% Goose Down Hypoallergenic full body pillow, shaped like a candy cane. And since many pregnant women have trouble finding a peaceful nights sleep due to the rapid ongoing body changes on the inside and out, this can definitely help…I remember thinking it’s THE BEST and totally worth it! Here’s the official description: The...
