So Thankful

Posted by savannahkase on December 1, 2013 in Personal |

I try to live with an attitude of gratitude (cheesy though it sounds, it is the true secret to happiness) and every year on Thanksgiving I feel overwhelmed by more blessings than I can count. Even so, spending this first Thanksgiving with my husband and son was truly something special. Unfortunately, although Thanksgiving is – […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Posted by savannahkase on November 12, 2013 in Advice, Parenting |

It’s mid-November and my nine-month-old has his first case of the sniffles.  I know a runny nose is nothing to worry about, but I hate seeing my little one struggling to breathe (especially at night).  I’ve done everything the books recommend – putting a humidifier in the bedroom, using saline spray and an aspirator, elevating […]

Nurturing Norms

Posted by savannahkase on August 7, 2013 in Current Events, Parenting, Personal |

It’s the last day of World Breastfeeding Week, and the theme this year is “Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers” with an emphasis on peer counseling, so it seems like a good time to address this all-important topic. World Breastfeeding Week commemorates the WHO/UNICEF Innocenti Declaration of August 1990 to protect, promote and support breastfeeding. I applaud the […]

Best Advice for “Back to Work”

Posted by savannahkase on July 31, 2013 in Working Mom |

  When my (Family and Medical Leave Act unpaid twelve-week) maternity leave ended sixteen weeks ago (but who’s counting?!?), I looked everywhere for advice on how to cope with this major transition. I culled books, blogs (a great one is Nicola’s Life After Maternity Leave site) friends, and doctors (the Breastfeeding Center for Greater Washington offers […]
