I get asked all the time — How do I have time to get ready or do my hair with four little’s everyday? So let me just clear something up…I don’t get ready EVERY day. haha. And if you know me personally you know my huge trick is not washing my hair but once a week!! This is the biggest game changer EVER!!

We have read every comment and email and we have felt the love full circle.
Feeding time is such a fun time at our house. Whether I was nursing Houston or when we would let the little people bottle feed him, the whole family wanted to be in on it. With August being Breast Feeding awareness month I’m sharing a bit our my experience. Nursing has been one of my most favorite parts of motherhood, but it did not come easy for me at all! Nursing Hunter (my oldest) was one of the most painful experiences ever — I think I cried every time she needed to nurse, but I stuck it out and within two weeks the pain was gone. I ended up going back to work TWO weeks after I had her (crazy) so bottle feeding was a must! We went through so many different bottle and nipples until she would finally take one. Let’s just say the process was not fun.
After that we tried lots of different brands that worked with Hudson and Hayden. This time I was bound and determined to find a bottle that Houston would love from the beginning. I’ve alway used Munchkin spoons and sippy cups, but until a friend recommended the Munchkin Latch bottle we had not tried their bottles. I’m convinced their smart design with the soft, flexible plastic nipple and round shape is what did it for Houston + I was totally impressed. He has used other bottles in the past —but he will not hold them by himself. So this time around was a cinch with the Munchkin LATCH bottle to get him to hold his bottle on his own.
Tell me how nursing was for you in the comments! Did it get better or easier with each baby? Or did you learn any tips and tricks along the way?!!
