My breastfeeding journey started out ahead of the curve.  My husband and I met with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) one-on-one weeks before giving birth.  We took a prenatal breastfeeding class, practiced feeding holds, learned about latches,...
When I married my husband, I expected, and received a partner. Someone who would run the house as my equal and when it came to it, take care of our children. Sometimes we can't be 50/50 and that's ok...

Hello, my name is Danika and I’m super excited to be a new contributor of the Flagstaff Moms Blog!  Here’s a little bit more about me. Family: I grew up in south central Wisconsin and south central Pennsylvania with one...
Hi, my name is Jill, and I’m a travel ball mom. Honestly, I tried hard not to be. My husband and I had five little girls in six years, and a wise friend coached me early on to be...
