A few years ago, when my husband Brian and I started Tubby Todd, we saw it as a solution for our little ones’ sensitive skin and a fun way to work together. But it has grown into something more powerful than we could have ever imagined. To our surprise, these all-natural skin care products have facilitated the creation of a beautiful community where mamas can connect on how to care for their little ones and themselves.
After starting Tubby Todd we noticed the need for a space on the internet for open, honest connection. From that came The Mama Blog- an editorial site that shares content to support all stages of motherhood. The Tubby Todd Mamas have a private group on Facebook, multiple events nationwide and now a book!
From this online community we’ve seen the need for a more supportive, nonjudgemental place for women to share their concerns. As Mamas we know that we will not ever be able to fully care for our little ones until we are first caring for ourselves, but sometimes
it is difficult to make self-care a priority. So in order to support our Tubby Todd Mama community, we’ve collected the best advice from experts into a personal guide that will shed new light on the mysterious world of self-care as a mother. This guide provides exercises, tools, and personal anecdotes to help busy moms find the mental, emotional, and physical strength they need. Our goal is to leave our Mamas energized and more capable of caring for their families and themselves.
You Mamas are sincere and committed to providing the best care for your little ones.
I love and honor that in each of you. Between work, social media, housework, spit up, caring for your partner, and health challenges, life can be ROUGH. We need a little reminder that we got this—and, we’re actually doing a freaking good job! Because we are, right? Right!
