    Episode 039 - What is Kabrita USA Goat Milk Formula with Dr. Annie Salsberg

    Episode 039 - What is Kabrita USA Goat Milk Formula with Dr. Annie Salsberg

    At MommyCon, my son had the pleasure of tasting KABRITA USA toddler formula and he loved it. 

    I almost cried watching my breastmilk snob actually enjoy something other than mama's liquid gold but it was also reassuring to know that there are quality products out there that my baby boo likes. 

    I had the opportunity to sit down and interview Dr. Annie Salsberg, ND, Senior Manager for Medical Engagement & Education for the brand.

    Episode 038 - "Surviving Colic"

    Episode 038 - "Surviving Colic"

    Colic is so short lived that I feel like we forget how hard it is. For the mom that's in the thick of it,however, it feels like an eternity.

    In this episode, I explain colic, share my empathy and survival tips and give you some comfort from a mom on the other side. We survived. You will too.

    If you're in the midst of it now, I understand your pain. If you're pregnant, listen. Don't be afraid. 1 in 5 children are said to have colic. If you're child does, you will survive it. If you had a child that was colic-free, listen to offer a consoling ear to a friend in the future.
    Quick reminder!

    Episode 037 - "Encouraging Your Partner To Be More Involved"

    Episode 037 - "Encouraging Your Partner To Be More Involved"

    As the primary caretaker for my son, I found myself taking on all the parenting responsibilities. It wasn't because my husband didn't want to but because I felt I had to. Turns out I was excluding him and taking away his opportunities to learn how to parent. In this episode, I go over some of the steps we took to make both of us happier.

Absolute magic.

I started listening to this podcast last June and I was so shocked by how little I had heard about childbirth and the stories women have shared. I don’t have children of my own yet but I feel like since listening to mamàhood I feel more educated and clear on resources! Such a great show!
