When I first became a mom (circa 1997), we had a dial-up internet connection that worked really, really slow. My husband had a pager. I don’t think I even had a cell phone.

A lot has changed in the last 16 years! Back then it was a little bit harder to get information and a little more costly. If I wanted a book on natural child birth, I’d have to buy it from Borders (does Borders even exist anymore?!) or hope that a friend or the library could loan it to me.

Nowadays, I can download a book from the library or Amazon in a few clicks of a mouse. They aren’t kidding when they say we live in the information age!

As a prenatal patient, I was always on the crunchy side. No, I don’t want an epidural, thank you. No, I don’t want to lie in bed. Yes, I do want to walk around. Yes, I do want to breast feed.

Books for Healthy Babies and Kids

Currently all these books are available in The Ultimate Healthy Living bundle. The sum total of these books is $70.42. The bundle includes 86 ebooks for $29.97 this week. That’s a lot of books, and it can seem overwhelming. That’s why I wanted to break it down for you a bit so you can see the forest for the trees.

There is nothing More precious than having your newborn baby all snuggled in a blanket laying on your chest sleeping. It feels like they melt into you andyou become one. Love it!!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
