Hayley Hubbard, mom to three, and wife to a country music star, and Jessica Diamond, registered dietitian nutritionist and mom to one are here to make parenthood a little easier and a lot less lonely.

Parenting is hard. And the thousands of decisions we’re forced to make everyday can feel daunting. Should I listen to my pediatrician, my mother, this website? Will other moms judge me for doing it this way? While we’ve never had access to so much information, it’s never been harder to find the simple, practical knowledge and vulnerable real life experiences we need to feel confident in the choices we make as parents. Every Monday, we break it down, sharing the real side of parenting through simple expert information and candid, personal experiences, because when you remove the doubt, fear, and stress from everyday parenting decisions, you create more time for the meaning full moments. It takes a village we’re so excited to share ours with you.

    36: Help! What do I feed my sick kid?

    Cold and flu season is here! So, we’re sharing all the easy and practical tips for feeding and supporting our little ones during the inevitable coughs, colds, and stomach viruses. So much information on this topic is outdated, so we’re breaking it all down — how and what to feed your child when they have no appetite or can’t keep anything down, our favorite natural over-the-counter remedies to help alleviate symptoms and reduce the duration of illness, and what we can do when we see them start to experience symptoms. We can all relate to the helpless and overwhelmed feeling of just wanting to make sure our kids are hydrated and okay, and we promise this episode will leave you feeling empowered, confident, and ready to tackle colds and flus when they hit your home!

    35: How not to lose your mind over Halloween candy

    With Halloween around the corner and the holidays close behind, Hayley and Jess are breaking down what to do, and what not to do, when it comes to treat season. Jess shares her successful approach and practical tips for handling your kid’s candy haul, why too many restrictions can just make them eat more, and how making them “earn” their treats puts sweets on a pedestal that leads to more power struggles. If the stress of managing your kids’ sugar intake this Halloween has you wishing it was January already, this episode is a must-listen for keeping the season joyful and treat neutral!
