As we return today from our first RV camping vacation in the Colorado mountains, I struggle to put into words what it has meant to us. (Luckily, I had about seven hours to think about it during the drive back.) The kids thrived in the outdoors with so much freedom to explore and let loose. […]

FOODS FOR NURSING MOMS TO AVOID
48 HOURS BEFORE NEWBORN SESSION:
Acidic food/drinks such as:
Cranberries Pineapple Grapefruit
Oranges Lemons Berries
Tomatos Chocolate Nuts
Pizza Chili Mexican food Ketchup
Gassy vegetables such as:
Asparagus Onions Pickles
Cucumbers Broccoli Cauliflower
Brussels Sprouts Cabbage
Restrict soda, coffee, tea, wine, and beer.
Sometimes dairy, depending on the baby.
I know this seems like a long list, but you only have your newborn's portraits taken once! It's not worth it to risk having a gassy or fussy baby who just can't settle. And in the event that your baby is still gassy, I always recommend keeping Gripe Water on hand. I know it was a lifesaver for me when my two were babies.
