I'm A Baby Wearing Mom, And Proud Of It

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting my darling colicky Itty Bitty, I’ll fill you in on a little secret… My tiny baby has some serious pipes. Like: I’m-going-to-be-the-lead-singer-of-a-rock-band sized pipes. Even the many years of being a music teacher (i.e.: listening to squeaking clarinets, booming bass drums, and pre-pubescent boys trying to muscle out the high notes of the Star Spangled Banner) didn’t prepare me for the screaming roars my tiny baby emits. “Go…

Swaddling helps your baby feel like they are back in womb – they’re tight, warm, confined, and restricted.

Mary Larsen Cohosts The Rhode Show {behind the scenes video}

I visited The Rhode Show set last Friday to cohost on the last day of Baby Week!  We talked about several fun baby topics, like Alicia Silverstone’s breastmilk share program, and made pureed baby food with our friends from Whole Foods on Waterman Street in Providence.  I don’t need to tell you how much fun I had – I can SHOW YOU!  The talented Corey Welch made this quick and fun behind the scenes video!   Take a look at…
