Online Breast Milk Sharing

We speak with Kayce Pearson from the Facebook Utah chapter of Eats on Feets about online breast milk sharing communities.  She explains how the ages old custom of wet nursing has taken a modern form and how moms are reaching out to provide a healthy start for their babies.

Sensory Challenges: Part 2

This is Part 2 of a two part show. Part 1 is available on our site.

Lindsay and Nancy speak with Dr. Sarah Schoen, the Assistant Director of Research at the Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) Foundation about SPD.  This is a very personal discussion for both hosts as they each have a child with sensory challenges.

Dr. Schoen explains this disorder and the various ways it can affect an individual.  We share some of the challenges of having a child with SPD, the pain of feeling unable to help your child, the freedom that comes with knowledge and a few lessons we’ve learned along the way. We also discuss how Autism Spectrum Disorders and ADHD relate to and are different from SPD.

If you feel that your child’s “quirks” are interfering with his daily life and happiness; if you find yourself creating exhausting routines and work-arounds just to keep the peace in your home; if your heart is telling you that your child’s behavioral and discipline struggles are not typical; if your child seems overwhelmed or even underwhelmed by sensory input, then please listen to the information Dr. Schoen has to share.

Bamboletta Waldorf Dolls

We are in love with the beautiful hand-crafted Waldorf dolls from Bamboletta Dolls.  These one of a kind dolls are made with natural materials and are designed to encourage creative and imaginative play in your child.  Even Hadley could not resist cuddling the sweet doll Lindsay brought in during the show.  Find out about these lovely dolls and this inspiring company from Bamboletta owner/founder, Christina Platt.  These dolls are not just toys but they become a part of the family!

Fair Warning: If you decided you need to have one of these dolls for your little one, be prepared to exercise great patience as they are limited in quantity and high in demand.  However, almost every “Mama” will tell you that they are worth the wait!
