Sorry I have been MIA this past week. My little one hasn't been feeling too great so she has been taking up most of my time. I wanted to write a little something since its been a while since my last post. I still need to post about the homemade rice and oat infant cereal, so Rachel if you are reading this, please know that I haven't forgotten!
Ok, so something that I use almost every day is coconut oil. I use the Better Body Foods Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
