Momming ain’t easy, and being tired is fo’ real. Moms spend so much of their days taking care of someone else, hardly thinking of themselves. Cutting up fruit to the precise angle in which your child will eat it.

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.

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!

Raising a family with a Spouse suffering from a Chronic Disease

As I sat breastfeeding my infant while entertaining my toddler, half-listening to a doctor (a gastroenterologist to be exact) tell myself and my husband that he was being diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease, I was overwhelmed to say the least. This made no sense. How was my 29 year old, strong, healthy, weight lifting, food-loving husband being diagnosed with a disease neither of us had ever heard of? A disease that in the middle of a cold night in January 2012 crippled my husband, sent him to the hospital, and resulted in him being admitted for over a week. A disease that would change the course of our lives forever.
