Be Thankful for Free eBooks!

It’s Thanksgiving week! And here at Real Simple Mama, what better way to give back to my parenting community than with free ebooks!

Be Thankful... For Free eBooks! - Real Simple Mama

I’ve made all of my parenting ebooks free to download from November 20-24; that’s right, you can pick and choose one, some, or all of my ebook titles:

  • Real Simple Motherhood: The Fourth Trimester (compilation of most of the other books below)
  • What Do I Really Need for a Baby? A Real Simple Guide to Newborn Gear
  • What Happens to my Baby After Birth? A Real Simple Guide to Newborn Medical Procedures
  • Happy Healthy Baby: A Real Simple Guide to Newborn and Infant Care
  • An Introduction to Healthy Baby Sleep
  • What is Babywearing?
  • Disposables or Cloth?
  • Breastfeeding or Formula?
  • Weaning Your Breastfed, Bedsharing Child

That’s nine ebooks! All for those who are expecting, or who have a baby to care for.

I don’t make any money off of my books this week, even though they’ve taken hundreds of hours to research and compile. These are the books I wish I’d had when I was first pregnant and raising my babies!

So please share this article, or the link to my amazon author page, so that together we can help as many parents as possible! My goal is to make all moms and dads feel encouraged, confident, and educated in everything from newborn care to weaning.

Thank you for your support, and Happy Thanksgiving!

What is a Balance Bike?

Our son had no interest in learning how to pedal a bike. We tried to encourage him but he just didn’t care! So when we heard about the concept of a balance bike, we wondered if it might be a better fit for him than a traditional bicycle. Read on for information about the pros and cons of a balance bike, plus photos and a demo video with Kiddo and I! Continue reading

Book Review: Confessions of a Domestic Failure by Bunmi Laditan

Guys, I finally did it! I read an entire grown-up book, all by myself! This is the first novel I’ve completed since my four year old was a newborn and I binge-read the Game of Thrones series on my iPad while midnight nursing. And since Bunmi Laditan’s book, Confessions of a Domestic Failure, just happens to be about a stay-at-home mom who tries to be everything and succeeds at nothing, I knew I had to write an honest review for you all.

What’s the Fuss with Amber Teething Necklaces?

Many moms swear by amber teething necklaces for their toddlers, claiming that the amber drastically reduces fussiness and pain associated with teething. Others say that the concept of amber makes no sense and that the jewelry is a waste of money. So what’s the fuss with amber teething necklaces, anyway?

I’ve been secretly dying to get my daughter a teething necklace and I finally did it! Now I’m here to share everything I’ve learned and observed. Continue reading

Review: All-In-One Cloth Diaper Comparison!

Cloth diapering is fantastic, especially when you can afford all-in-ones, or AIOs. They’re the most convenient of all the fluff options, but that means that they’re also the most expensive. I’ve gotten some as gifts and I’ve purchased some “more affordable” AIOs from Amazon, and I wanted to give you a fair and honest all-in-one diaper comparison!

Does it really pay to buy a “cheaper” AIO, or are they a waste of money? Continue reading

Review: Nursing Bra and Tank Comparison!

Breastfeeding is incredible: it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life, and yet I adore it. I’ve been nursing now for over three years, which means I’ve gone through a lot of breastfeeding gear!

This article will show you the honest truth about all the various bras and nursing tanks I’ve used over the years. I’ll also give you some general advice if you’ll be in the market for this stuff any time soon. I tell you about comfort, sizing, pricing, and how easy it is to nurse in these damn things. Bonus points if I can easily get my boob out with one hand! Photos included, of course. On we go! Continue reading

Write An eBook: How to Get Started

I have eight ebooks currently published on Amazon. It’s been an extremely long, tedious process. But I’ve survived! – and I’m actually looking forward to writing more.

I figured that I could offer some free advice to anyone who’s thinking about writing ebooks. Not everything went according to plan, and it often seemed like I’d answer one of my questions only to have three more. But at least now I can share my experience with you! Continue reading

“Real Simple Motherhood” has arrived!

Seven months of work. Countless hours of writing, research, editing, formatting, and meditating. Sleepless nights. Stress and changes plans and stomping over my comfort zone.

It’s here. It’s finally here!

I am so proud to announce that my first major book, Real Simple Motherhood: The Fourth Trimester, is now available on Amazon KDP. Continue reading
