This month Mamalode is honored to partner with Hyland’s—a company that has been providing safe and natural homeopathic medicines to families for over a century—to bring you a series of stories about GENERATIONS of moms. Your stories. And we can’t think of a better sponsor for this theme. Hyland’s products have been passed down from great grandmothers to grandmothers to mothers and daughters to help first-time parents provide natural relief to common ailments during baby’s first years. Moms breathe a sigh of relief with Hyland’s gentle baby medicines.
This month, your words fill our hearts with joy, bring tears to our eyes and give us an opportunity to share in our collective past and present. For this, we thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
