You know you’re living the #MomLife if you rang in the New Year by changing a dirty diaper while wearing a shirt with spit-up on it and trying to soothe your cranky baby to sleep thanks to your neighbors who launched fireworks at midnight.

January is National Bath Safety Month, and was established to help spread awareness about possible risks associated with bath time. While baths can be relaxing and fun for your little one, there are plenty of hazards in the bathroom which can make it one of the most dangerous rooms in your house.
From the moment you find out you’re expecting, you embark on one of the most exciting journeys in your life – parenthood! And as soon as you announce your pregnancy, you’ll find that everyone has plenty of advice for new parents and they’re happy to share it.

As a mom, you are equipped with all sorts of awesome instinctive tools for soothing a fussy baby. Did you know your voice alone is extremely comforting for your baby? If you think about it, your little peanut has been listening to your voice long before she arrived.
