With Easter coming up, we wanted to create an alternate to the typical Easter basket. I never had Easter baskets growing up—it was just not something that culturally my parents did or even knew about. So it's kind of a... Continue reading

Hi Marit! We transitioned Coco out of her swaddle around 4 months. Some people go cold turkey but that didn’t work for us and instead we did one arm out for a few days, them both arms out. It took about a week for her to totally get used to it but it worked! Joy

Thanks so much Julianne! That means a lot! For this series, we really wanted to concentrate on those I could meet in person and really get a sense of who they are and what they do! Joy Sent from my iPhone

Hello! No taping is needed as the edge is formed from the dipping. And the nail polish dries super fast so it won’t drip. Best! Joy

Hi! We just used the cheap nail polish at the drug store that’s $1.00. And you don’t even use a whole bottle for each pot. Joy

Hey Jessica, Yes, I can just pull it down. That might not work for everyone depending on the length of of your torso because it’s not a stretchy dress, but I’m able to pull it low enough. Joy

Lately, I've been all about dresses that are comfy and easy-to-wear, yet still flattering. With that extra softness around my waist post-baby, I'm still avoiding tight (muffin-top-forming) jeans whenever possible. So I love it when I can throw on an... Continue reading

Hey Caroline, So interesting to hear about how different all your kids were! As for Coco with tapering off the feedings, if you do it gradually, they shouldn’t notice. For example, I normally nurse for 30 mins. So I went from 30 to 25 to 20, etc. until I got down to 5 minutes and then I did it one minute less per night. If you do it gradually, they’ll start to make up for it in the day little by little. I did it over the course of a couple weeks. The main change that happened is that sometimes she wouldn’t be as lulled back to sleep as the feedings got less and less (ie. sometimes she’d be more awake when I put her back down for bed after shorter feedings), but if your baby is pretty good at going back to sleep on her own, she should do okay.

Hi Alex, Trying pouring the nail polish into the water closer to the surface. If you pour it up too high, that might be causing the bubbles. Thanks! Joy

Hey Melinda! Her awake time ranges from 90min to 2 hours now. And we never changed her day feeding beyond every 3 hours purposely but there are times she can go four hours between feedings if she’s sleeping or we’re out and need to push a feeding back a little. Once we got down to her waking up just once at night and she turned four months, I started night weaning that one feeding and tapering the time feeding a little every night. That made the transition of sleeping through the night more seamless because she slowly got used to eating less and less at night and eating more in the day to make up for it. -Joy
