  • My favorite part of Peyton’s bedroom refresh is her art from @sheisthisdesigns! I need to order more for Harper’s room and my new office space. I dreamed of having a room like Peyton’s when I was growing up (sometimes now 😆). She’s also has a closet to die for.  I always tell her if she can’t keep it clean, I’m putting my stuff in there.  We’ll be cleaning that out soon! Paint color is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore.  More room pics on the blog. Link in profile. #heytrinashome
  • Picture of my girls actually fighting against doing any school work.  This homeschooling thing is a full time job! Mr has locked himself in my old office leaving me to fend for myself. I’ve decided to give the girls and myself grace (and 🍷). Not that I’m letting them win, after hours of going back and fourth I have to know when to call it a day.  One night I was up with Peyton till almost 10 helping her finish her work and I knew this can’t be life.  So we’re working about 2-3 hrs a day on school plus reading.  That’s all i got.  Just praying  she passes 4th grade 😩. How’s it going for you guys? #graceandmercy shirts fine @pintsizefaith
  • Another project under my quarantine belt! Peyton’s pre-tween bedroom refresh is done! It looks so good and matches the vibe of the rest of the house. Peyton wanted to kick the bright pinks to the curb. Now Harper wants her room update 😒. Her only update will be a good cleaning 😩. Spent less than $100. Swipe to see the before that was already cute.

  • Spring is here but no spring break 😓. Just over here washing my hands, trying to stay positive and plotting where I’m going when this is all over. Homeschool was a fail this week but I did finish my new Supermomculture.com site, set up my new workspace and deep cleaned my kitchen.  Currently happy hour at the crib. Can’t wait to rock this @suakokobetty outfit again.
  • My 2nd quarantine project is complete! So y’all remember that cute office I had.... well Mr stole it a few years ago even though it has pink accents 😒. My pictures are still on the wall an everything.  Since then, my main office has been the kitchen counter with my laptop. How am I supposed to run a multi-thousand dollar business from the counter? Being a blogger is one thing but having a retail business is another beast. I have a computer in my guest room where I package orders but it was on a small writers desk with no room for papers or anything.  It was getting too hectic. So I switched the room around to make more space to fulfill orders and work. I shopped my basement to put it together. I super excited to have a new space where I can leave my papers and planners. My desk is the Linnmon desk from Ikea. I already had 2 of these tables that are on the other side of the printer for @supermomculture orders. PS: while I’m being productive my kids aren’t 🤷🏾‍♀️
  • Trying not to come out of this self quarantine 50lbs heavier.  The girls and I did a 30 min Tabata and they are now doing hip hop routines on YT.  I wrote a post last year sharing my favorite free home workouts.  Visit the blog and search workouts or watch my stories for swipe up.  Doing my best to stay busy and being productive cuz after cleaning my kitchen, I haven’t done anything else 😩. Outfit from @jdowfitness #homeworkouts
  • Speed kitchen deep clean! Taking this time to get my home in order. I used several products including my favorite stainless steel wipes. I used a mixture of warm water and vinegar to clean the floors by hand. There are a lot of ways you can disinfect with what you have at home since everyone finally decided to clean up now. I’m also counting this as my home workout 🏋🏾‍♀️
  • Let’s play a game! Since 2020 is turning out to be the “Ghetto” I want to know what you do that would be considered “Ghetto”. I know we act all bougie on the internets but I know there’s something we do that we know would be frowned upon. Set yourself free and tell me in the comments.  I may pick a winner who makes me clutch my pearls... maybe a @supermomculture tee 🤔. I’ll leave mine in the comments 😆 📷 @kaynjames
  • Channeling my inner Supermom powers during this time to clean this house from top to bottom. I’m starting with a kitchen deep clean. Then it’s on to bathrooms, the girl’s rooms, closets and my workspace.  I’ve ordered Mr to paint the guest room, y’all know how that goes 🙄. It’s the last room in the house that hasn’t been painted. Get ready for a lot of home content since I’m stuck here. Let me know what y’all want to see. #springcleaning #heytrinashome
  • Working for yourself can be overwhelming during tax time.  #AD Instead of being stressed out, I headed to @HRblock to meet with one of their tax experts.  My tax pro Darshna was awesome.  She answered all of my questions and gave me some great tips for my personal and business taxes. I plan to use my refund to invest back into my business (and maybe a few pairs of shoes). Save time with convenient hours and get upfront pricing.  Use code 69539 to save on your tax preparation fees at @hrblock . #betterwithblock
  • It's our 1 year anniversary of Supermom Culture.  One year ago I pushed post with a slight panic attack to share a tee and a hoodie that I didn't know if anyone would like, let alone buy.  When they say you have to do it scared, it’s true! I've always wanted to create something fun, cool and comfortable that represents what I stand for.  Thousands of shirts sold and we’re just getting started! I want to thank you guys for all the support via likes, follows, tags and photo shoots.  This movement wouldn't be what it is if it wasn't for you guys. There is more to come for Supermom Culture to celebrate you guys!  Be on the lookout for new drops and live events! Black on Black is now back in stock!  To celebrate I have a special deal when you buy one, get a tee 25% off! If you don’t have one, go ahead and save on the black and white tee. No code needed!

Caring for a Sick Newborn Baby

March 1, 2016

*This post is sponsored by Pedialyte however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.

Happy March!  I’m so excited that spring is on the way.  I’m so ready for cold and flu season to be over.  You do your best to try and protect you newborn baby from germs but they still manage to sneak in to your home.  My newborn baby Harper has been hit twice with a cold and infection this winter. There is nothing worse than seeing your tiny little baby not feeling well.  After taking Harper to the pediatrician, the doctor’s recovery plan included Pedialyte.small-37

  • Cancel everything.  You’re not going to get anything done when you have a sick baby.  Folks are just going to have to deal with it.
  • Monitor your babies temperature.  I love my forehead themometer because you don’t have to wake them up to take their temperature.  If they have a fever, call the doctor or head to urgent care immediately.
  • Don’t force your baby to eat.  If your baby does not want to eat, don’t force it.  You’ll only make them more frustrated.  Offer the bottle, but if the baby won’t take it, just wait.
  • Use an aspirator often.  Babies can’t blow their nose so make sure you have a good aspirator to get out the mucus.  Use it every chance you can to clear the passage.
  • Position baby on an incline.  You’re probably going to have to hold the baby a lot or set them in a bouncer. This will help to drain the mucus in their head.
  • Hydrate baby with Pedialyte.  Hydration helps the body to function correctly. Non-flavored Pedialyte was recommended by Harper’s pediatrician to restore her electrolytes.
  • Use you mother’s intuition.  If baby has a fever take them to the doctor or to urgent care.  I knew something wasn’t right with Harper just a month ago and it turned out she had an infection.  I’m glad I took her in.  Again, her doctor recommended Pedialyte along with her antibiotics to help in her with a speedy recovery.pedialyte 1

We lose vital fluids when we are sick.  I try to keep Pedialyte in the pantry for Peyton as well.  Anytime she is sick or throws up, Pedialyte is my go to product to help get hydration levels back up.  Pedialyte is available at Walmart and easy to find in the baby care section.  Most Walmart stores are open 24 hours so your child doesn’t have to suffer through the night to wait for the stores to open. pedialyte 2

Save $2 off any (2) one liters using Ibotta

We hate for our little ones to be sick.  The best thing we can do is be prepared.  Have you had to deal with a sick newborn?  Please share some of your tips.

    I’m so glad she is feeling better. Nothing worse than a sick baby. When Addison is sick I still give her Pedialyte.

    I like how you mentioned that when taking care of a sick baby, you need to monitor their temperature, and if they have a fever you need to call a doctor or take them to an emergency room right away. My newborn baby is sick, and I want to make sure I take good care of her, but this is my first child and have no idea what to do. I will definitely keep all of your great tips in mind when trying to properly take care of my sick baby.
