I’ve probably said it 209890845 time by now – being a parent is hard. Suddenly everything that you do has the added challenge of taking care of another little human while you do it. When you decide to be a parent, you are warned and probably feel ready to accept the responsibility that comes along with having a baby. You can read blog posts, read parenting books, ask other parents, watch movies, do all of the research in the world, but there are somethings that are just unexpectedly hard when you have a baby.

When you have a sick or fussy little one, nothing feels longer than the time that it takes for a thermometer to check his or her temperature. Getting your child to even sit still for that long can be agonizing for you both. Forehead thermometers got a bad rap at first for being inaccurate, but recently it seems that studies are finding them reliable enough for home use. They are definitely the most convenient, and this Clinical Ear and Forehead Thermometer by Generation Guard offers the convenience of a forehead thermometer and ear thermometer in one device.
One of the biggest decisions for a family to make when having a baby is if both parents go back to work after baby comes. For some, the choice is obvious. Some moms and dads love their careers and wouldn’t think of leaving them. For some, especially us mom, the choice really comes down to our current financial situation.
Happy Friday All! I have a little bonus post for you this week to share some special savings brought to you by Groupon.
When I first started looking into how to create a money-making blog, there seemed to be endless amounts of resources available! There are so many pieces of advice and places to go to monetize a blog with just a quick Pinterest search. Sometimes it seems like there are more blogs out there about blogging than any other writing niche. What I didn’t really seem to find was a selection of posts about what the process of getting a blog going would actually be like.

The reality is that many of us fall in between the high-traffic/high-income blogs and the ones that are struggling to find any readers at all. Here is what you can really expect when you want to grow a business and get paid to blog.

These companies allow families to have one parent work from home, watch the children, and still provide an addition to the family income. Some of them do it full time, and some of them are working in addition to another job.
Registering for baby items can be entirely overwhelming! There are way too many items that you can buy for baby, and everyone has a different opinion on what is a want versus what is a need. I suggest customizing your own new baby checklist to keep track of the items that you plan to buy or borrow before baby arrives. As far as knowing what is worth splurging on and what items you can skip, that one will depend on your lifestyle. There are, however, some must-haves that all mamas tend to agree on. Here 40 moms share their favorite items from their baby registry.
One thing that all new parents expect to spend plenty of time doing is changing baby’s diaper!

For the most part, changing a baby’s diaper is a no-brainer, repetitive activity. There are a few things, however, that all of the advice givers tend to leave out. Keep reading for 10 things that no one tells you about changing baby’s diaper.
