I love my babies. Having them is a truly wonderful addition to my family, and I would never want to go back to life before Fuzz and Shnook entered the scene.
Baby Yoga, to me, is really postpartum yoga for moms. You bring your baby and all the babies just kinda roll around on the floor and explore their new abilities, while the moms get some much needed stretching and strengthening between feedings.

I’m approaching four months postpartum. With my last child, around four months was when I thought I was going insane from sleep deprivation.
