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!

This Is Why I Baby Wear

As a babywearing mama, I get a lot of different comments from people when I am out and about. Some mention how happy and cozy my baby looks, while others ask questions. It’s a challenge to answer them in a way which really explains and glorifies babywearing like it deserves. There are so many reasons why I enjoy wearing my baby, it would be impossible to explain them all to a complete stranger (although I’ve thought about making a pamphlet that I could just pass out as I walk away).

Here is a very honest list which hopefully will do justice to how wonderful it is to babywear! Continue reading

Raising a Toddler the AP Way

Attachment parenting doesn’t stop when your kid learns to walk. The concept of AP grows as your child does, and you adapt it over time. My oldest is now two and a half, and I’ve put pen to paper in an attempt to show you what AP looks like from a toddler mom’s perspective.
