The irony of motherhood is that kids live 100% in the present and yet because they do I have always had this voice in my head telling me that: because they are, I can’t. Am I alone in this? How can we live our lives in a way that plans for the future needs of our families while also actually living in all of those moments as they happen? How can we trade living in a rushed blur, running from one thing to the next, hurrying everyone and ourselves, for connection and memories, with our feet firmly rooted in the present? Well, I definitely don’t have all the answers but I have spent a ridiculous amount of time studying this idea of “presence” over the past year and I am excited to be able to share all I’ve learned over this next month with you!

“The key is to do what you can, when you can, and give yourself props for it all.” —Andrea Faulkner Williams

I’m so excited about this month’s book, you guys, and not just bc my BFF Andrea wrote it (would have picked it even if she hadn’t!). It’s seriously such a relatable read + incredible resource for navigating the postpartum period (and beyond). It’s down to earth, funny, and full of quizzes + journal prompts to help evaluate how motherhood is going for you and figure out what you can do to make it even better. If you’ve never joined in #sollybabybookclub before, now’s a good time—after all, you’re going to need something to read while you’re pinned to the sofa by a sleeping baby. Download this guide and read along!

Ever wonder who made your wrap? Maria. Janette. Irma. Socorro. Elda. Francisco. Maggie. Everything about your wrap (and swaddles )—from the fabric to the packaging—is made right here in the USA and dyed with environmentally-friendly dyes by workers who are paid fair wages.

We’re joining in Fashion Revolution Week bc we’re proud of the impact Solly has on both people + the planet. #imadeyourclothes

“True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.” – Brené Brown

April’s Book Club book is Braving the Wilderness by Brené Brown, PhD, LMSW. It’s about finding true belonging + self-worth, and I don’t know about you, but when I became a mom, those things became more important than ever. If you’re new to the #sollybabybookclub here’s what you need to know:
1) All you have to do to “join” is buy or borrow the book (or audiobook!) and read (or listen!) along.
2) We’ll share our favorite quotes + reflections from the book throughout the month and look forward to hearing yours, too.
So, are you in? Download our nifty book guide above to start the discussion and… let’s do this, mamas!
