Hi!
My name is Lauren and I'm young mom to a wild little boy named Brody, and a sweet angel girl named Blair that we lost at 22 weeks. On my channel I talk about a variety of things ranging from motherhood and navigating life after pregnancy loss, to vlogs, recipes, and other lifestyle videos. I'd love if you subscribed and stuck around!
xox,
Lauren

  • So does everyone gain a lot of weight? I have a high metabolism and I’m pretty tiny haha.

  • You looked extra gorgeous here! (Before the tinted moisturizer) Are you doing anything different? Or is it the vitamins?

  • Just commenting so you can come back to this video and see how far you have come. Congratulations on having a very healthy, beautiful baby girl ♡ you did such a great job Lauren and God will continue to bless you and your family.

  • What program do you use to edit your videos?

  • Found your channel just now and I adore you for being such a caring mom whilst taking the time for the tube. 😊💗

  • Thanks for sharing xx

  • 🤰❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • What a belly! You were ready to pop!🤰❤️

  • I normally have my periods on the same day every month but for the past two months its been irregular. Last month i had my periods 9 days late (yeah false alarm) so now idk when my ovulation date is. How xan u tell when is ur ovulation date? I really wanna take a pregnancy test but its way too early.

  • Hello there, have you considered Custokebon Secrets yet? Simply just do a google search. On there you will find a great guidelines about how you can lost a lot of fat. Why not give it a shot? maybe it will work for you too.

  • It’s so hard to find moms on here now that are realistic for a lot of moms! It’s not always glitz and glam. I used to be able to be glam and makeup everyday but now with two littles I’m lucky to have my hair nice lol. Love your channel it’s REAL💙💙💙

  • Ahhh..Lauren..I love your videos and how you are honest about your struggles, I am now 60 and my 3 sons are now 36,35,&34.. there were some really hard days..but today... I sure do miss those days when the boys were little and so innocent.. I will tell you are doing a a great job plus videos...

  • Love your robe! Looks soooo comfy! Where is it from?

  • I hope you really do know you're doing a fantastic job. Your kids are healthy and happy, a testimony to the care of a good, loving mother. Keep being real, we really do appreciate it. This is a hard season and there's many of us in it!

  • ...MAMA GOTTA HAVE HER 🍷TOO LOL NOOO JOKE 🤪 LOVE YA GIRL YOURE SO AWESOME!

  • I get excited when i drop off my daughter at the gym daycare 🤣 lol he will have fun making new friends!! I’m a military wife too.. & it is SO HARD doing it ALL alone! I feel you mama!! 💞

  • You are beautiful

  • Babygirl’s smile melted my heart. ♥️ and the kids snuggling 😍😭

  • Is there mint in the supplement? I've tried to stay away from mint since that can reduce milk supply. Have you noticed a difference?

    • Lauren Self good to know! Thank you!

    • It’s not in the supplement, but there is a mint tab inside the bottle! I haven’t noticed a drop in supply

  • Cutie baby 😍 we also bedshare & it’s the only way I would ever get any sleep. Loved seeing your routine! My baby girl will be 12 weeks in a few days so it’s fun to see other mamas with daughters so close in age!

  • Aww how adorable Brody and Darcy sitting on the couch beside each other. Your so Beautiful Lauren. And such a great Momma. I Love Y'all !! ❤😘

  • I’m going to be a new mom and I don’t want to overpack so this was really helpful to me.

  • Im 190lbs and 5'10 I'm 14th week. I Wonder how much I Will be when im very pregnant and after pregnancy.

  • I'd love to see a cleaning video. I know you've talked about it not being realistic to do all the time but I'd love to see a realistic cleaning routine video from you. Love your videos and love seeing your insta stories as well.

  • You are 100% right about the transition from 1 to 2 not being talked about enough! Omg it is SO hard. I thought I had mom life in the bag until I had my second🤣 then reality slapped me in the face! Haha! It's nothing but survival mode now😖😂 My first will be 2 on the 20th and my 2nd will be 5 months on the 27th.

  • I recently moved to the same area in Florida! Do you have a recommendation for a good hair salon? Thanks in advance! :)

  • Love that we can relate! My husband is Navy and we’re in Florida. I have a 2 year old and a 5 month old❤️ you’re doing a great job☺️

  • Portraying a perfect life online is a trend that will never go away and always remember is not reality . Your doing great

  • I can only imagine this is a private clinic/hospital? Man, here in Spain (public hospital) you will be, before actual labor), in a shared room with other 3 women, having contractions. Either some screaming because of the pain, others calmly walking around, 1 shared bathroom.... Then you go have your baby in the private room, and back to this shared room. With doctors and people passing you 😂😔😪 no intimacy at all.

    • Nope, this is a public hospital! I’ve only ever heard of people getting private rooms the whole time here in the states. This is in a large metropolitan city so it’s a bit nicer, they see more high risk and international patients but it’s the norm to have a private room here. I could not imagine having to share a room during such an intimate time!

  • My temps have been nice and high. Currently 6-7 dpo. Been so hungry and today nauseous and hungry at the same time. Man alive.

  • You are so relatable, I love your videos. What diaper bag do you have? Super cute!

    • Paige Benny thank you! It’s from Luli Bebe! LAURENSELFBLOGS25 gets you 25% off!

  • Awe Darcy's smile when she woke up.. so cute! 💕

  • Hi Beautiful! 🥰Loved this video! You are a great mom! Your children are so adorable! Your coffee cup is cute! You are right.... when ya feel tired get some rest!😁 I try to get more when I need it! Thanks for all the healthy product advice! You have a positive, calm and warm energy! 💕Always, Carol

  • I love that you cosleep!!

    • I always love to see cosleeping mamas too. It’s a beautiful bond. I filmed a night time routine on my channel awhile back and I thought a year later it wouldn’t be so similar still but I am still cosleeping with my toddler lol and it’s special for sure ♥️

    • Christine Ohara thank you!!

  • Loved seeing your morning routine! And congrats on the ritual partnership ❤️ they seem like such a great company with really great products! Ps. What tinted moisturizer do you use? Makes your skin look amazing!

    • Thank you! I love that you know exactly what’s in them, I didn’t realize how many additives were in lots of vitamins! And I use the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation! It’s seriously sooooo good for everyday, plus it has SPF in it 🙌🏼

  • I can hear the sound of hiccups your baby is having and the poor baby must fill very uncomfortable.how would you fill if you had that lying flat on your back? Didn't you think of picking the poor baby up until it goes away? How would you fill lying down win that situation?

    • Get out of here. She is a great mom. You're obviously a troll who has never had children or you would understand it is a common occurence.. also apparently you have never had hiccups either. Idiot. Her babies are well taken care of and perfectly healthy. Unlike you apparently.

    • Last time I checked hiccups weren’t painful and if she was uncomfortable then she would cry. 99% of the time I pat her back when she has them, the 30 second clip of 10 minutes of my day where I didn’t do that is what you’re seeing.

    • Leave her alone. Who are you to tell her what to do. If you had to say what you did, you could’ve said is in a way that wasn’t rude and condescending. Not your baby, not your problem, so don’t make it your problem

    • There’s always one. Take a seat and step away from the screen for a bit. Your extra is showing. 🙄

  • Can you do a video for new nursing mamas? I’m due in June and have no idea what I’m doing, what products are a must have and the best clothes to wear during nursing. I noticed you wear regular clothes. This would be so helpful!

    • Mandy Welch such a good idea to do this video! I was so lost with my first when I was breastfeeding!

    • Congrats!!😆I’m due in June as well (the 23rd) with my second son. I’m a 26 years old Christian married momma. If you want a mom friend you’re welcome to add me on Snapchat and I can help with any tips or tricks! If not I completely understand! [snapchat: kaykamay]

    • Mandy Welch that’s a great idea! I’ll try to film one!

  • Girl it’s a game changer when they start school. No shame in being excited to have a little break during the day!

    • Ashley Jenkins that’s so true!!

  • I look forward to your videos! :)

  • Loving the inspiration! I am working on my baby girl nursery now!

  • That robe looks SO comfy lol. Thanks for sharing! I needed some healthy food ideas that don't restrict me.

  • Why does three quarters of all videos have to be about things we don't care about? Get to the point.

  • What is DPO?

  • Love your point about added sugar. Sugar is detrimental for breastfeeding..especially refined sugar. That is exactly how I make my oats as well! So funny.

  • Our symptoms are the exact same!!! I’m at 8dpo now

  • Love it! Some women unfortunately are always trying to keep up with the Joneses and look up to those perfect mamas on social media. Love that you’re open with your subscribers about the reality of motherhood.

    • Christy Gior very true! 💙

  • So sorry you’re going through this, but relieved that I’m not alone in feeling this way. I have a 4 year old daughter that I plan to homeschool beginning in September, and I’m expecting my son in May. I’m really nervous because I stopped working a month ago and my husband started a new job so I can be home with the kids which we both feel is best for our family, but I’m already feeling unmotivated and blah like I did when I was home with my daughter all the time before. Having my husband stay home with her while I worked for 3 hours 3 days a week was keeping me sane. And I hate to say that because I love my daughter and I want to be home with her and I live spending time with her, but at the same time it’s so hard to have no independence. She literally won’t play without me and I don’t want her to watch tv every time I feel like relaxing and I don’t always feel like getting her out to play. We live in an apartment complex with no play area so I have to take her to the park or mall or something and I don’t always feel like doing our hair and getting us dressed and packing bags for her to get some fresh air. I’m rambling here because I feel like I would be judged if people who actually know me knew this. But anyway, thanks for sharing. I’m really nervous about adding a 2nd child in the mix, which I really wanted and I already love him, I’m just scared I’m going to fall apart. But I’m praying and trusting God. Praying for you too.

  • She does so good with tummy time! Literally doing it every day with my baby girl and she’s just not there yet!

  • You can make a batch of french toast ( like 6 slices), cool & cut them in strips & freeze them in serving size bags & simply microwave whenever you want them, much cheaper & healthier & really their not much time at all to make & they actually go further than the ones you buy!. ...Smoothies are great for your snacks & good for Brody too!... Water is great for you, I add water to my big bottle at night, add some fruit or cucumber chunks, pineapple chunks, whatever you like & boom in the morning or afternoon when you want it you have amazingly fresh, healthy & yummy water for the day!..I roast my chicken breasts with my fav veggies, so much easier to have both at once & both cooked & ready when I'm ready to eat....You look great & seem to be managing wonderfully!! :)

  • I’m having all these symptoms, but the dreams didn’t start until week 7 and I’m on week 8 now. I found out at week 3 and 5 days that I’m pregnant. My first symptoms were heightened thirst and frequent urination that made me curious

  • You’re such a good mom! I love this video, definitely going to refer back to this once I’ve popped out baby #3 🤣

  • I love these kinds of videos! Especially because I’m also a breastfeeding mom who needs new food ideas. 🙌🏻 also I loved what you said about “being that mom” in a few months. I’m in the same boat. Have a almost two year old and a new baby. I’ve been keeping food simple, same for activities, etc. But like you said, in a few months when we are sleeping again and have a routine I can go back to doing more!

  • Lauren " when i see someone trying to touch my baby in the store, dont touch my baby " 😂 yesss thats me everywhere i go 😂

  • You should try overnight oats, it’s easy and something different if you want to mix it up💜

  • Love how relatable you are! 💕

  • When you say 40 lbs, do you mean including the baby inside you or was that 40 lbs after having the baby?

  • This makes me want to do a wedding photo shoot with my husband!!!

  • Hey beautiful momma, Just wanted to say you are doing such an amazing job!! You are so inspiring and such a strong person, You are much stronger than you think girl. I am a new follower, i started following after I came across your vlog regarding your loss of your beautiful firstborn❤️❤️ just wanted to say how inspiring you are, I recently loss by beautiful boy born at 22 weeks also and you have given me so much hope and strength✨so glad I came across your channel 🙏 Much love and strength to you and your beautiful family here from Australia

  • I love these kind of videos. I was wondering if you would be willing to make an all about breastfeeding video.

  • That protein shake dance 😂😂😂

  • Darcy is so tan lol Has she had been tanning. So cute

  • Omg, don't feel bad about the French toast sticks. I practically ate those things for breakfast every day when I was a kid. Then again, it was mostly about the syrup all over my plate.

  • Yes this is real life!! Mixed matched socks, slippers, poop and delayed meals!! Thank you for this!!!

  • You are too funny.... GREAT Healthy food... Darci is getting so Big already & looks like her Daddy.... GBY ALL 🙏❤💙💙💖🤗

  • Thank you for posting - I love these videos! I am 2.5yrs postpartum but still struggling with an extra 15lbs and not sure how to mean plan and always running out of ideas 🙄 I took some notes and am excited to prep for the week! Next up is getting more consistent with exercise!

  • Aww.... You are so Beautiful and such a sweetheart! Thanks for the advice about the reusable coffee pods!😁 I didn’t even know they had those! I just told my daughter! Orange juice helps pick me up! I love oatmeal w/ fruit and cinnamon. You have a beautiful home! Bless you and your family! 💕Always, Carol

  • ❤️❤️❤️

  • I love seeing the lighter side of you as well! Life is hard girl and you gotta laugh. Thanks for the tips!

  • You’ve got this girl! You’re strong 💘

  • Love this video and would love to see more!

  • Love these kind of videos! You’re babes are so cute and getting big!!

  • Great video. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and on my channel I shared a What I Eay in A Day pregnancy edition video. Thanks for the meal ideas and for sharing😊

  • “Actually I don’t think this is organic... I usually by organic quinoa” and it says organic tri color quinoa right on the bag💀🤣

  • The kcup tip you gave is something I have thought about too. I think I have to start doing that. 🤔 and I love the haakaa!

    • Loren Ashley Vlogs Yas the Haaka is the best

  • I love these kinds of videos and love the day in life style of it

  • lovely <3

  • 8:23 he’s so not interested in the bebe, typical man! 😹😹😹

  • 12:03 looks like the dad was smoking 😹😹😹

  • Thank you so much for this video! It’s so informative and I loved all the information/explanations.

  • I have a daughter that’s a few months younger than Brody and a son a month younger than Darcy and some days r just hard! You are doing amazing! I was away from my husband for like 3 days about a week ago and it made it so much harder, I can’t imagine doing it for so long!! Ur doing amazing with making urself such a healthy breakfast, I want to start doing that too cuz I only make myself oatmeal so thanks for that inspiration!😊

  • You’re beautiful

  • I also just wanted to say don’t beat yourself up about the feeding my goal was to feed my son for a year and I was totally beyond shocked at seven months when I woke up one day with literally no milk in my boobs because I got my period and it never came back we put so much pressure on feeding our babies and you are doing the same thing as me calling it a priority, which is going to really hurt if you don’t reach that goal ..please try to focus on feeding her as long as your body can and don’t put an end date on it mama ❤️

  • I found you through a day in the life video with just your toddler and immediately went to subscribe and now you have 3 babies!! ❤️😝 so happy for you I have one 23 month old son Carter and I love watching these while I have my coffee xoxox

  • Ugh these hormones of mine girl you’ve got me tearing up

  • Idk how you do it girl, I have one newborn and am scared of my husband just going back to work in a week... that’s depressing to me and I cry about it a lot ... therapy is always the way to go tho I’m like you and have it in my family and also hate being on medication for it

  • This was me EXACTLY after I had my second, and honestly, this is still how my anxiety manifests itself. I’m so nervous about having my third and going through this again. I also feel the same way about the gym. I have a hard time getting motivated to do workouts outside of the gym, and I need to go for my mental health, but it is so damn hard when you’re a busy mom.

  • YES!!! I feel this so much! Thank you for being so real and genuine ❤❤❤

  • I love how raw you are 😭

  • I freaking love you 😭😭

  • I'm due with my first (a girl) in May. It's so helpful to see what I'm *really* in for - thank you for keeping it real + relatable! <3

  • I think I am pregnant , I have varicose veins before even taking a test their every where on my body , vivid dreams for 5-6 days , lots of saliva in my mouth , very emotional and or very moody , I had itchy boobs for like 2 days and been so exhausted ! Hopefully I am💕

  • Just found your channel. I also lost my daughter to Triploidy in 2016. I definitely get emotional over my daughters loss to. Our story seems to be actually pretty similar. After Lorelei (Triploidy baby) I had another daughter named Harper in 2017. Then 4 back to back chemical pregnancies. Currently pregnant again (5 weeks) also a military family! Hugs mama this journey is definitely hard. I never heard of the place you donated to. That’s seriously amazing that they have places like that.

  • Ik I'm gonna cry my son start this month. 😔

  • What is the app you use called
