How to instantly connect with moms on-the-go

This post is sponsored by PeckApp – all opinions and experiences are my own!

Searching phone contacts:
– Isla’s mom
– Park mom red shirt
– Hailey (?) school picnic

Do any other moms have random entries in their contact lists like I do? It happens all the time – you’re out and about at the park, library, or school function – you watch your kids play so sweet with the other kids and even strike up a friendly conversation with the mom. You briefly exchange names during your pleasantries, but of course, you forget – or maybe you know a first name, but is that enough to stalk find her on social media so you can connect?

Enter every mom’s new best friend – PeckApp. PeckApp is a way to share contact information, from your phone number and email to social channels and Venmo, in one simple app.

How to combat baby gas — tips from a third time mom

Thank you, Mommy’s Bliss, for sponsoring this post. All opinions about these products are my own.

As a mom to three little girls each exactly two years apart, you’d think I’d have the whole newborn thing down to a perfect science.

But alas, I did not. My 2-month-old slept like a dream the first six weeks but then started getting really gassy and fussy at night.

We’ve all been there, right? Your always smiling, sweet, happy , and cooing marshmallow of a babe flips a switch and becomes, at best, sad and crying and at worst, completely inconsolable for hours on end. The culprit? Gas.

I tried all the old tricks; I used gas drops; nothing was working. While I don’t love the idea of medication, especially for my new baby, my neighbor friend came to the rescue when she offered me a brand new bottle of some miracle gas drops. After giving them a try when my husband was out of town, I was hooked. Then when Mommy’s Bliss reached out about working together, I knew it was a match made in gassy baby heaven.
