My name is Cassandra, and I am a 25 year old mother to two beautiful boys, Thomas (5) and my rainbow baby Bastion (15 months). When my husband and I got married in 2016, we wanted to have another baby. We never considered the possibility that a few short months later, we would be sitting in a doctor’s office being told that I was experiencing an incomplete miscarriage. After 8 weeks, my precious second child was no longer with me. What followed was the hardest journey that I have been through. I was shocked the most by the feeling of loneliness. My husband didn't understand why I was spiraling into such a deep depression, and so few people even knew we were pregnant to begin with. I became a member of a small mommies group on Facebook, and it was there that I sought comfort and understanding - someone to reach out and help me come to terms with this loss. I was surprised to see how many others had also suffered a loss and felt exactly the same. Knowing that I was not alone was lifesaving. Eight months later, we were expecting again. I remember struggling - fighting between excitement and anxiety. I would hold my breath during every appointment, just waiting for the heartbeat. The sound was so beautiful, so strong! I tried to cherish every moment of my pregnancy, even through the morning sickness. It was my lifeline to my baby in the early days, a way for my body to tell me he was still with me. I talked to him every day and told him to hold on for me. The day he was born was pure magic. I remember trying to memorize the feeling of his heart beating against my chest, as he looked up at me with curious eyes. His tiny hand grasped onto my finger. "We did it, buddy. You did it. Thank you for staying strong." He has always been my second chance, my gift. Seeing him with his brother for the first time, smiling, crawling and now walking. In everything he does he is a bright light, and truly a rainbow. And that is what I learned - that even in hardship, no matter what it may be - there are blessings hidden there, just waiting to shine. Waiting for you to meet them there, at the end of your storm. - @cassie.taasevigen for @mamalode #MamalodeMandayTakeover

Hi! I’m Jeanie, and I’m excited to be taking over Hyland’s again for #MamalodeMonday! I’m a mom to two little boys, a newly-turned 3 year old and a 1 year old. Watching your children grow up is so exciting and amazing, but I’m coming to learn it’s also heartbreaking. It feels weird to say that because it’s a wonderful thing to watch, but they are little for such a short time. Before you know it, they aren’t a baby anymore. Sam, our older son, just turned THREE! It’s been fun few days of celebrating him and the joy he brings to our lives. He’s so full of love and adventure, and playing outside is his number one favorite thing to do. Stick around to see some of the fun activities we did for his birthday and let me know how you feel watching your kids grow up in the comments. - @jeanie_anne for @mamalode

Winter weather means being stuck indoors, which can be very hard when you're trapped with a sick kid or two. Lucky you, Hyland's makes medicines specifically for kids! We help you soothe their symptoms and get them on the road to recovery. @becky.palmieri
