Little Bear is 3 months old. It’s funny how difficult it is to remember a time without her.

Though she hasn’t been with us for very long so far it feels like a lifetime, in a good way. I mean, clearly, if I think about it I can remember before her and…

Even babies need a bedtime

When my son was a baby he slept all the time. (Mostly while laying on me.) I remember having to wake him up to feed him and all the times he fell asleep while still breastfeeding. When I asked our doctor about all this, she asked some questions about family history and determined that everything was fine. She added that we were lucky because our son slept so well.…

Why I Look Forward to Baby Number Two

6 Things I Miss (3).jpg

Once you’ve had your first child, the second baby conversation starts to happen… often.

You think about timing, age difference, and things like “is our home big enough?” or “can we really handle two kids?”

But let’s be honest: now that the hard part is over, you just wonder how in the world you can go through the first six months all over again (lack of sleep and raw nipples especially), but, at the same time, you don’t think it’s humanly…

Your little sister, the entrepreneur

Before I begin today, I understand that there have been a lot of studies debunking the idea that birth order is something that influences people's behaviors.



But I am still fascinated by birth order and how often it works out. It may one day be designated as "the modern-day astrology," but I am…

Letter to My Clingy, Cranky, Teething Child

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.28.24 PM

knew I shouldn’t have gotten used to the great night sleep, perfect, clockwork naps, and how amazing you were doing with independent play the past few months… I knew that.

But I did… I sort of took it all for granted. That’s how well you were doing!

Until, of course, that nasty molar popped in a few months early.

This week has been rough on Mommy, you know. Between your ravenous appetite (most days you almost eat…

In need of a lactation boost?

As a breastfeeding mom, I understand the frustration when it comes to your milk supply. I mean c'mon! Breastmilk is liquid gold in our eyes. Like many moms, I would spend so much time online looking up how to increase my milk production. We all remember the first time our milk comes in. We are full, engorged, and our bed seems to be like a 'milk puddle'. I came across many products online but one that stuck out to me that I was able to order was Mrs. Patel's. Mrs. Patel's is a growing company… Continue

Teething Essentials

My little man is four months old already. How the heck is that possible? I swear last month was February. We can't possibly be nearing the end of June right now, can we?! I've learned a lot the last four months about my little guy. He is quite a bit fussier than his big sister. He does NOT like his carseat. He's not crazy about the swing. He is chubby and pudgy in all the right places. He loves to be held...all the time. I call him my little hot tamale because he puts off…

There has been a radical drop in exclusive breastfeeding in the last few decades. Out of the 90% mothers who initially opt for exclusive breast feeding, only few manage to successfully breastfeed their babies.

Getting sick at daycare

My son started daycare at 6 weeks old. I remember the heartbreak of leaving him (he was so little!) and the relief of picking him up on that first day (he had gotten bigger!). I did love that facility - the nurturing attitude, the brightly lit rooms, the web cameras for me to check in on him throughout the day.…

Focusing your attention on the important things

My son is six now, but I vividly remember the oh-so-brief period when he was a baby. He would sit on the floor with toys scattered all around him and either his Daddy or I would be on the floor nearby, watching him play and sometimes joining in to help him with his blocks or trucks. I never wondered if we were playing with our son in the "right" way or even if there was a "right" way to play with him.…

At University with a Baby

When I was about two weeks into my pregnancy with Bobby, I was made redundant from a job that I had been in for nearly three years. Believing (perhaps wrongly) that I wouldn't be able to get another job in my current condition, I didn't look for anything else, deciding instead to look…

A Perfect Technique of Burping your baby

If your baby burps quickly after you pat her back, you are a lucky mom. Many babies like to play with poor new mumma by keeping her up for long for burping.

Burping may seem easy and fun at beginning but when you have to do it daily 10-15 times, its no more fun. My babies' doctor used to remind…

Parenting Standards… Lowered. | Anna Lane on MomCave LIVE

Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,

Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.

I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…

Black Bean Superfood Fingers

So far (knock on wood), my 9 month old will eat anything I give her.  So, I try and give her healthy choices as much as possible.  If everything tasted good, wouldn't you eat the healthiest stuff all the time too!?  I read an article on superfoods for babies and decided to try and pack as many of those as possible into one french fry shaped "finger" that she could easily feed herself.  I found a winning recipe!  I made them over the weekend and they will probably last all week - plus they…

A Mom's Musings

Welcome to my life. Well, I should say a part of my life. I’ve been thinking about blogging and because I love to write and I have a few interests in certain areas, I decided to put it all together and start a blog. Where’s the drum roll? So if you’re a mom, you know exactly what somedays look like. For example, have you ever looked around the house and asked yourself “Good gosh, what the heck did I even do today?” But really, you did a lot there just isn’t much to show for it! Been there,…
