'That Latch Looks Fine': Breastfeeding Through Lip and Tongue Tie Scepticism. by Andrea Nielsen-Vold OurMudyBoots.com

There's one issue that I don't think many can appreciate without having been through it, and that is trying to breastfeed a tongue and lip tied baby. Although there are many levels of what ties look and act like, one thing they all generally have to overcome is scepticism that they A) are actually something that exists, and that B) they actually … Continue Reading...

Flight Safety Speech Anything But Boring!

Must Watch: 24 Job Applicants See Parenthood Differently

Must Watch: 24 Job Applicants See parenthood Differently  by Jennifer Andersen OurMuddyBoots.com

Watch first, then I'll share my thoughts. What I Do not Like: I wish it referenced "parent", instead of "mother", because this applies to dads, too (not just my kids' dad, but LOADS of dads) I wish the hashtag was #worldsbestjob, to set us up for success, instead of #worldstoughestjob, which is negative, and in my experience, not … Continue Reading...

A Road Trip Through My Daughter’s Eyes

It is tempting to tell our children what they see, but it is beautiful to listen to them tell us.

It is tempting to tell our children what they see, but it is beautiful to listen to them tell us. A family road trip reminded me of this.

We have moved through ever changing scenery; desert turned to forest, cacti … Continue Reading...

The Business of Baby Book Giveaway! OurMuddyBoots.com

Receiving the news that we will soon become a parent is powerful. We have visions of what life with our new baby will look like. We picture our baby's entrance to the world- it is filled with love, beauty, and joy. For most families in the US though, these visions are quickly stolen from us.
