Leave it to the power of social media to discover new and innovative products. With my first child I had no idea that there were commodities on the market such as co-sleepers or loungers. With my son, a friend gifted me a sleeper nest but I found it a bit rigid and intrusive for our, at the time, queen sized bed. Fast forward five years to my now third child, and Instagram is inundated with sleep loungers! They have different names such as dockers, loungers, lounge beds, co-sleepers but all have the same purpose.

According to The Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, avocados are a healthful fat that can help women achieve a balanced diet and have a healthy pregnancy. While pregnant with my son I ate so many avocados in all of its possible forms, and then again while on my fitness journey to lose the pregnancy weight after his birth. Now that I am 2 months postpartum with my third and nursing, I have included more avocados into my diet. Because let's face it, as a Dominicana aguacates are already a household staple.

Okay, so maybe a girdle alone will not help you snapback like these Instamodels that come across your explore feed. But they really do help you, and not just with getting your tummy a little flatter. Here's how...

I used to call myself Chica Fashion but whenever I am expecting or up a few pounds I am at a complete loss on how to look cute while feeling comfortable. This time around I tried a couple of items from Pink Blush Maternity and it was amazing, the two tops I picked out were on heavy rotation during the last few weeks of my pregnancy.

Not too long ago I posted about my colic woes, and although I do not want to rush time, because that would mean my sweet baby girl is growing out of her newborn stage and maternity leave will quickly be coming to an end, I am very much looking forward to this phase ending. We all hate it — the baby, my husband, the older kids, and me.

Like always Spring Break is a week away, here in Essex County, NJ and I have yet to plan anything to keep my children busy. lt could be part procrastination, part improper budgeting so I am relying on my go-to, affordable kid friendly activity planner - Groupon (and/or Livingsocial).
I simply search for nearby activities within a 10 mile radius for less than $15 per person. In most occasions I participate and need to purchase Groupon's for myself as well but this time around since I have the baby I will sit on the sidelines and watch, which will save additional costs. Here are the Groupon's I purchased for my kids...

As many of you may already know I recently had a baby girl, unfortunately just as with my other two she also suffers from colic. If you are unfamiliar with colic, as per WebMD - The term applies to any healthy, well-fed infant who cries more than 3 hours a day, more than 3 days a week, for more than 3 weeks. It is severe, often fluctuating pain in the abdomen caused by intestinal gas or obstruction in the intestines. Because of my other two children, I was already familiar and had some items in my colic arsenal but recently discovered a few more to help remedy this work of the devil.

Some women are blessed in the collagen and elasticity department when it comes to dealing with stretch marks. Unfortunately, I am not one of them. I have the typical stretch marks that occur with growth spurts, puberty and weight gain/loss. But then there are a special kind of stretch marks, pregnancy stretch marks.
This is my third pregnancy and apart from the stretch marks that occured while carrying my first born, I do not think I have added any new ones. Here is how I avoided adding additional stretch marks with this last pregnancy.
