Audrey Smit, recently published a children’s book called THE ADVENTURES OF LILY HUCKLEBERRY IN SCANDINAVIA, the first in a series (next stop is Japan), providing a strong female role model who encourages children to be brave and adventurous.

Time is flying and Niko is already 3 months old!

I am so looking forward to letting my son try food in the coming months. Some suggest 4-6 months is a good time.

“food before one is just for fun!”

To prepare for the next step in Niko’s eating, I got a few things already.

One of the products I have ready is the teetherpop™, a brand new line of USA-made fillable, freezable teethers designed to hold water, purees, homemade smoothies, freshly juiced fruits and veggies, Mother’s milk or baby’s favorite drink. You can freeze them for an added treat. Plus, they’re made from U.S.-sourced, FDA-approved, medical grade materials so they’re BPA, PVC, latex and phthalate free. www.teetherpop.com

NEW Dove’s First-Ever Customized Conditioner Collection

Your hair is unique. Shouldn’t your conditioner be, too? I wanted to be one of the first to tell you about Dove’s NEW UltraCare collection, the brand’s first-ever customized conditioner series.

Available in three different formats (a foam, milk gel and crème!) and formulated with our patented Micro-Conditioning Complex, it’s designed to deliver the right level of nourishment that truly gets your hair. Providing a whole new way to choose the right levels of nourishment for your hair type, it’ll leave your hair nourishedhealthy looking and cared for.

Postpartum hair loss is real! I have been finding my hair everywhere – in the shower, on the ground, in the car and all over the house. Using Dove Milk Gel Conditioner has helped get most of it out in the shower before I put my hair into mom braids. Excited to try the foam and creme next!

As a new mom, I just want to look presentable – and showers are between naps, feeding and diaper changes have to be fast and effective before the baby wonders where you are and starts crying again!
