As a mom, or just as a parent, have you heard "oh he/she needs to stop eating" or "wow, they're so tiny" or any statements aimed at your child's weight? I know I have, and I am tired of it. .... It honestly makes me doubt my motherhood when I hear my baby is fat for his age or will be overweight as a toddler. It causes me to second guess his hunger cues and my mothers intuition, become insecure about whether I'm fit to be his mom, and other insecure thoughts.
A little about this weeks guest blogger: Hi, I’m Sarah! I am a mother, a wife, a middle sister, an aunt, a daughter and poodle mom. I am a certified professional life coach, owner of Blessings and Lessons Coaching, host of the Homework to Happiness Podcast and now, founder of Mommy Real. As a life coach, I have made it my mission to create a space for moms, where self love is rediscovered by simply keepin’ it real. Mommy Real.
This last month has been a rollercoaster of emotions and milestones (even "almost" milestones"). Drew (now 7 months old) has been growing and developing, and me (and baby Doss) have been doing the same.
Recently, I got a chance to collaborate with fellow blogger mama Jo Funderbunk (@momslikeher). We decided to produce point and counterpoint blog entries detailing our married vs. single motherhood experiences thus far. Jo is a newly single mama of a one-and-a-half-year-old son and she's trying to master the art of co-parenting. I, on the other hand, have been married for two years and am the mama of a seven-month-old son and expecting my second! Our experiences have been vastly different but when it comes down to the love of our family, we share a common bond. Click the link in my bio to read both of our stories; they’re posted sequentially. We’d love to hear your thoughts!
For this special feature and guest blog, I want to introduce Jo Funderbunk, founder and creator of Moms Like Her. Check out my piece on her site, as well as featured here Confessions of a Married Mama.

Sleep training commonly refers to methods to teach baby to "soothe" self to sleep. Some methods are: cry it out, check and console then put down, and the chair method. All of these involve patience and the ability to be "okay" with letting your baby cry.. all of which, I ain't with. so, in the voice of Randy Jackson, "it's a no for me dawg!"

I realized that I talk a lot about motherhood and my life as a mommy now; however, I never talk much about how I got here. A lot of people ask me individually how my labor and delivery went, so I want to take this blog post to share with everyone. Enjoy 💞
