#VaccinesWork

November 13, 2016. The day my entire life changed. I gave birth to sweetest little human being. He was 7lbs and 11 ounces. He definitely made his grand entrance into the world. Shortly after getting settled in our room, doctor’s began coming and going, wheeling him in and out, bringing him back each time sound asleep. He was constantly being measured, poked, and prodded, having all kinds of test ran that they do for newborns. I’m still getting the bills for all those tests too! However, before we left the hospital, I was asked if I wanted him to be vaccinated for Hepatitis B. I did not know exactly what that was and did not know if it was beneficial for my newborn. Upon taking the time out to think about it, and research it on the internet, I decided that I would go for any vaccinations we were offered because I wanted the healthiest baby possible. He has now grown into a drooly, happy-feet, cheesy, 5 month, ball of cuteness. Every couple of months, we go to the Pediatrician and we sit there while he gets his routine vaccinations.

Jaxon’s First Flight: Tips on Traveling with Infants

On March 17th, I boarded an airplane for the first time with my 4-month-old. I knew nothing about traveling with infants.

I shuffled down the aisle in a single file line along with the other parents traveling with infants and children. The passengers already sitting watched with awe and annoyance as the parade of babies and children that they would be traveling with for the next two hours passed by.
