Ultimate Blog Party 2014

Ultimate Blog Party 2014

If you are visiting from the Ultimate Blog party, welcome! Thank you for stopping by our website, dedicated to helping new families as they transition to parenthood.

As Registered Nurses and Lactation Consultants, we have had the privilege of working with over 20,000 new families. New parents struggle to determine which sources of health information can be trusted. We created this website and our app, NuuNest, to provide accurate, researched based information.


We love our jobs and our families, but not necessarily in that order! When we are not working, we are dreaming and planning our next family vacations. Jana’s dream vacation is tropical with lots of sunshine and sand! Cindy’s dream vacation is camping in a National Park with great weather and hiking trails.


Please take a minute to look around our website.

      Thanks for stopping by! After seeing your beautiful photos of Stockholm, we will be dreaming of family trips to Sweden.

  3. This is a wonderful resource site. I wish I had it when my 2 girls were infants. Thank you for making the time for “touchstone” style help.

    Thanks Kristin. We do love what we do. Checking out your site right now. Loving your adventurous family!

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog for the UBP14. :) I’m totally with Jana on the dream vacation- I would definitely want to go somewhere tropical!

  6. Greetings! I’m sending your link to my daughter who has a new baby. I think that she’ll enjoy reading your posts. All new moms need reassurance. Stopping by from the UBP14. Nice to meet you!

    Hi–thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your site, and I wish I would have had something like this when my kids were babies. Keep up the awesome work! :)

  8. Hi Cindy and Jana, nice to meet you! I’m following you from the UBP14 and look forward to seeing your posts here at Cindy and Jana.com.

    I am so glad to have found your blog and looking forward to staying in touch. I love the idea of your blog, and I don’t think I have seen a similar blog elsewhere, so unique! I started blogging with a similar idea, to use my knowledge and help people, even though my area is very different.
    The health system can be very confusing these days and you can help so many families and individual people. I will make sure I share your blog with people and on social media!

    I am so glad you stopped by my blog and that we were brought together through UBP14. Your site is great for newbie Moms, I wish I had found it when I had first had my son. I will definitely pass it along to my friends – especially those that are BF’ding! I realized I also forgot to tell you in my reply that the reasons my son took long to feed was because he has a severe lip tie. Everyone checked him for a tongue tie and said he was fine…even when I asked his pediatrician to check for a lip tie she said he didn’t have one… turns out that he has a severe one! I think lip ties are not nearly has talked about so people don’t even think to check for them. I only checked for one because it turns out my niece has one, too! Anyway – thank you so much for putting together such a great site for Mom’s!

      Very interesting! We are struggling to find some diagnostic criteria and specialists in our area for this very thing.

  11. Stopping by from #UBP14! I wish I had known about your site when my kids were babies. Such a great resource. Nice to meet both of you!

  12. I love this entire concept!! I am so passionate about breastfeeding & encouraging other moms as they try to work it out. Certain websites were my saving grace during those first few years of motherhood, and I still find myself going there now when I’m wondering about some childhood ailment. Glad to have found you all through UBP!

      Thanks for stopping by Gabby. We love meeting moms who are passionate about their role as mothers.

  13. Hello Jana and Cindy – nice to meet you both. Stopping by from #UBP14

  14. Abigail says:

    I’m passing your blog along to newly pregnant friends. Dropping by for some UBP fun.

  15. Dawn says:

    Seems like two opposite people can bring so much and make another great mark in life. Love the Blog. I only saw to following and tweeting away.

  16. Hi Cindy & Jana- Just stopping by from #UBP14. Nice page…love your service. I breastfed my child & I think its so important. I am also a mom and have my own business. Check out my Blog (http://spaglo.blogspot.com/2014/04/join-me-for-this-years-ultimate-blog.html) and Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/spaglo) and website (http://www.spaglo.com) if you get a chance.

  17. So nice to meet you!

    I’d have to say my dream vacation includes a beach and beautiful sunsets…

    • cindyandjana says:

      Thanks so much for dropping by! So far that’s 2 for team Jana (beach vacations). Surely there are some campers out there???

  18. Hi, nice to “meet” you both! Love the info your blog provides, would have been handy years ago when I was just starting out as a new mom. :) I am a big supporter of breastfeeding (currently nursing my 7th baby and had even nursed my twins!) so I can appreciate what you share!
