Daily Mom

We are a team of fun loving, web combing, baby wearing moms and dads who saw a need for a website where we could share all the useful tips we come across daily. Modern mothers need one place where they can learn how to raise a baby, cook a meal, build a fire, save some money and then spend it, and do it all while looking perfect and being green. Ok, who are we kidding? It would be impossible, but we still try. Daily Mom will bring to you everything that can be of use to any mom and mom-to-be. We are here to educate, laugh with you, and make your lives easier (or harder depending on how many crafts you decide to do).

A Cure for Postpartum Incontinence

This sponsored post was written by Daily Mom on behalf of InControl Medical. All thoughts and opinions are our own.

One in three women experience bladder leakage. Urinary incontinence can happen for a number of reasons. Pregnancy and child birth are the top two reasons why one may experience urinary incontinence. We all expect to pee more than usual when we are pregnant with our baby kicking our bladder, but once you are holding that future soccer star in your arms, you expect the leaking to stop. Sometimes, bladder leakage does not stop after you deliver. Postpartum bladder leakage is common, but it is frustrating, inconvenient and embarrassing. Let’s take a look at this “mommy problem” and explore a way to stop the leaking and cure incontinence for good!

FOREO ISSA mikro Reviewed: Swedish-designed Sonic Baby Toothbrush

ISSA mikro baby electric toothbrush in use by my toddler

We all know how important oral hygiene is for our little ones, and the earlier we start taking care of our babies’ gums and teeth, the better the chance we have of building healthy dental habits when they’re bigger. Even before those first tiny teeth break through the gums, dentists encourage parents to clean baby’s gums after each feeding. Our only options for doing so have been a wet washcloth or one of those silicone infant toothbrushes that you wear on your fingertip, and once teeth start breaking through, finding a super soft toothbrush that cleans gently enough not to irritate those sensitive gums can be quite the task. But FOREO from Sweden wants to make it easy on us parents with their ISSA mikro sonic baby toothbrush, specifically designed for the smallest of brushers, from infancy to four years of age.

What You Do Not Know About Coil Spring Mattresses

As it’s estimated, we spend a colossal 26 years of our lives sleeping; it’s surprising most of us don’t take sleep as seriously as we perhaps should. In fact, few of us make a conscious effort to keep our bedding and mattress up-to-date and to optimum quality, simply because we forget! But a bad mattress can have hugely detrimental effects on your sleeping pattern and overall quality of sleep, which can result in serious symptoms throughout the body over time if not rectified. But luckily, there is one universal mattress renowned for its variety and composition, and that’s the coil spring.

Due to the various sizes of springs available when manufacturing a range of mattresses, coil spring forms can offer different degrees of support dependent on your preference.

A Letter to my (older) Adopted Child…

It is not your fault. It is not always your fault that you are all alone. It is the nature of the beast. It is the way you were raised, it is inherent in you, and sadly, you cannot change it because you are a teenager and you simply don’t have the ability to do so. Your brain is not fully developed, your hormones are raging, and you are angry. I know. And I have failed you. I have failed you because I am so often at a loss as to how to help you. You tell me I don’t understand, and you are right. I was not there for 9 years of your life, 9 of the most formative years of your life. I do not know what you went through, I do not know what happened to you, I do not know how to manage all the feelings and emotions you try so hard to suppress.
