April Baby Shower at TodaysMama

What if you took all the best of baby showers, the great advice, birth stories, generational bonding, the low down on the must-haves, and yes, even a debate over midwives vs. OBs, without having to play the "smell the diaper" game? We're so excited to feature a really great month of editorials that has all the stuff girlfriends talk about at baby showers, but sharing it with all of you.

April Baby Showers

And this is where you come in! If you have a crazy birth story, if your grandmother's birth stories would blow our minds, we want to hear about it! If you have a piece of advice that you always give at a baby shower, we want to hear from you. If you went to a disastrous baby shower (or maybe you were more than an hour late for your own shower for no good reason...*ahem*,) write it down! Have an opinion about midwives or OBs? Even though Rachael and I think we got the spread on that covered, you might have something even better to say.

Whatever it is, this is your chance to be featured on TodaysMama's national stage. Drop an email to editor@todaysmama.com with your submission. We can't wait to read your stories, advice, and maybe about the worst piece of baby gear ever invented.

The 14 Minute Baby

Three and a half weeks early with my oldest, 10 days late with my second, I had no idea when my third baby would arrive. And I really had no idea that she'd arrive in 14 minutes.

April Showers Bring May Diets©

I don’t know what all the hoopla is about spring finally arriving. Not that I’m a big fan of the winter and weather so cold that your nostrils stick together when you inhale, but at least in winter, nobody can tell if you gained any weight because you’re covered up in thick sweaters and bulky jackets. But then spring rolls around and suddenly its panic time because you know that summer is just around the corner and you’ll have to put on a bathing suit and the truth will come out that you did not spend every breathing minute at the gym as you said you did and did not survive on protein bars but instead ate more than your fair share of Krispy Kremes for about six months running.
