So, you started your career—got pregnant—went on maternity leave—and six weeks after your baby was born you had to return to work. What is a mom to do when she is faced with the responsibility of having to work, but she feels guilty about leaving her baby for 8 hours a day? If you are a mom that is experiencing “working mom guilt”, then rest assure that you are among millions. There is good news about working moms—according to the experts, working moms, on average, are said to be healthier than stay-at-home moms. Researchers have found that stay-at-home moms are more likely to become depressed than a mother who works outside of the home. So, when you are driving on your way to work tomorrow morning, don’t feel guilty! Remember, whether you are a stay-at-home mom or a working mom, you deserve to pamper yourself!

Most parents complain about their baby’s sleeping habits. While some babies have trouble sleeping through the night, others have trouble sleeping soundly in their crib. According to the experts, there are many factors that contribute to a child’s inability to sleep at night—lacking a sense of security is one of them. One suggestion given by Family Education is to place a stationary object in the baby’s crib to give him a sense of security. A Personalized Plush Teddy Bear such as the one sold by Bliss Living just might be the answer to your baby’s sleeping needs—and yours too!

It is perfectly normal for a new mother to be confused about what to include in her diaper bag for a day out with her baby.

Some of the major items that every mother should include in an infants diaper bag are: diapers, wipes, milk, bottles, cloth diapers, pacifiers, rattle/toy, spare baby clothes, baby food, eating utensils, diaper rash cream, sunblock, changing pad, plastic bags, water, and Tylenol. There are many more items that would be helpful to carry, but this is a condensed list to get any mom started on her day out with her baby.
