Kid-O-Bunk My kids seem to have sleepovers every week.  The tornado of linen and pillows and stuffed animals that they take to bed seems to explode out of the room.  In fact, I find the cleanup of the sleepovers far worse than having the

A few months ago I attended the BlogHer Conference in NYC. Upon registering, I spoke with a lovely older woman who whispered to me, "the Trojan table is giving away 'TOYS'. Make sure you go there first". After heeding her sage advice, I walked around the various conference exhibits. Throughout the day women were commenting about the toys, some were horrified. I thought, really? In this day and age of "50 Shades of Gray", its obvious that there is not only a market, but a need/want/desire t [...]

Diastasis Recti Repair - Diastasis Rehab® vs. Mombodfitness
October 25 2012, 0 Comments

For years women have been told that they needed to have abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery) in order to correct transverse muscle separation in their abdominal region. It wasn't until Julie Tupler came up with a technique that focuses on approximating the muscles that things start to change. Since then, other products have come on the market targeted towards the correction of diastasis recti. Some are just compression garments, which hold the belly in, but do nothing towards correction.

I have a relationship with the local NBC affiliate. When they need a parent's perspective, I sometimes get a call to come in and chat on camera. So when I learned the news of the tragic disappearance and murder of a local 12-year old girl, with a heavy heart, I was happy to lend a voice. Tracy Davidson does an amazing job covering these stories because she always bring in an expert and it allows me to ask questions of my own. View more videos at: http://nbcphiladelphia.com. [...]

There are days where I barely make it out of the door to take my youngest to daycare. Some mornings there are tantrums. Other mornings he decides that he needs to sit on the toilet for 15 minutes while I wait in the living room with my coat on. But on hectic mornings, after dropping him off, I find myself heading to McDonald's for a hot tea and Egg McMuffin, just so that I can have some semblance of nourishment. One particular morning, I noticed that McDonald's Monopoly had started. Now [...]

I have been hemming and hawing about doing this, but I finally relented and decided to open up my product offering to men. Diastasis Recti - What is it? Diastasis Recti is the separation of the outer most abdominal muscles, causing the thin connective tissue to stretch across your stomach and support your internal organs. This tissue was not designed to do this, so what happening is that your belly squeezes your internal organs creating a vertical bulge. Women who have it call it a "Mumm [...]

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of being a speaker at the Pennsylvania Women's Conference in Philadelphia. Many years ago, I was an attendee at this same conference and was inspired enough to forge ahead and start my online business BellyButtonBoutique.com. Speaking definitely brought the experience full circle for me, but I was also able to attend various sessions and walk away once again inspired. Here are my 3 takeaways from the day. 1. Sometimes your life pushes you in the direc [...]

We receive some excellent questions via email and our blog, so we decided to post the answers to the ones that are most frequently asked. Our hope is to provide clarity so that you can make and informed decision regarding your purchases. 1. Regarding the Diastasis Rehab products, can I just buy the splint? The splint is a tool to help hold your abdominal muscles together while you are doing the Tupler Technique. Its not like Spanx, where the garment does all of the work. You must d [...]
