Hi there! I’d love to hear from you—feel free to ask me anything, to say “hi”, or to get in touch about possible collaboration opportunities. Below are some guidelines to hopefully help with your inquiries.

Interested in having one of your articles published on Mama Lovejoy (submission guidelines)?

Great! Do you have a story about overcoming parenting challenges? Our tagline is “what no one tells you about parenting”… so we love humorous or touching stories or lists! Bring on the surprises, obstacles, and things you wish you’d known sooner. Our favorite articles are on topics many parents will relate to and primarily focus on infants and toddlers.

Alternatively, are you, or is someone you’ve interviewed a Physician, Psychologist, Sleep Consultant, Lactation Consultant or other well-credentialed expert on pediatric or postpartum health? We’d love your tips! We prefer articles that include tips that the medical community would generally agree offer the highest standard of care, rather than niche opinions.

Last, do you have a highly relevant and impactful news release on a parenting topic (like mandatory vaccinations or nationally funded maternity leave)?

Send it on over! I would love to publish or republish your work (and a link to your blog, of course), if it’s a fit.  Head over to Facebook and private message me with your name, website, a proposed headline, and a final draft of your proposed article (<1000 words), and a bio (1 to 3 sentences, including a link to your blog).

Interested in a product review, and you’d like Mama Lovejoy to consider reviewing your product?

Thanks for reaching out. Please PM me on Facebook. Please include a description of your product.

    i think it’s fantastic that you are doing this blog. As a new mom I really get a lot out of your site. I read you sleep training article. I have a question. I hired a sleep consultant for my then 5 month old. Theo had been on a strict ruteen ever since. We did the cio extinction version because Ferber was not working. His room is blacked out with a noise machine. My question is we are going on two months and he still cries for 5-10 minutes 2-4 times a night. I think we have had 1 night where he hasn’t made a peep. Have you run across this. Does it ever go away. My two will have to start sharing a room next month and I just am nervous. Thanks for any input. All the best christina

    Hi Cary!
    I saw you on Tyra Banks’ new show today! You must be so excited :) I just looked at your Facebook and website and would love to collaborate with you! I am a doTERRA essential oil educator (3 years) and love to work with other moms and empower them to find natural solutions with essential oils. I travel all around teaching classes, do one on one consults over the phone and host online classes. I also send out sample packs for anyone interested in experiencing the oils before they purchase. Have you used essential oils before? Would you like to try them and collaborate on a giveaway or educational series? I look forward to hearing from you!
    All the best,
