Welcome to the new MyBrownBaby, the blog for parents who love their brown babies, by moms who do the same!

In the short time since its launch last month, MyBrownBaby has grown exponentially, with a wonderful following of moms (and dads!) who've enjoyed the content posted here. And I figured it was high time to step up MyBrownBaby's game by giving the site a funky, fly, fresh new look you know, to keep up with all of MyBrownBaby's funky, fly, fresh readers.

The new design was created by the ever-brilliant Jennisa at Once Upon A Blog. I'm convinced that while I was dreaming up the new look for MyBrownBaby, Jennisa stepped into my mind, and snapped a picture of what I was envisioning a testament to her ability to listen to her clients and deliver big time on her promises. Jennisa? You. Rock.

MyBrownBaby is the brainchild of me, Denene Millner, a veteran author, journalist, and parenting expert who has written 14 books, is the Reality Check columnist and contributing editor at Parenting magazine, a contributing editor at Essence magazine, associate editor at Odyssey Couleur magazine, and a freelance writer who has written for a plethora of publications, including Health, Entertainment Weekly, Money, Heart & Soul, Ebony, the New York Daily News, The Associated Press, and a host of others. I'm also the mom of two beautiful daughters, and a ridiculously handsome stepson, and married to a wonderful (and super hot!) husband and writing partner, Nick Chiles.

Writing is my first love; my family is my passion. And MyBrownBaby taps into the two things I love most: Family, and intelligent, thoughtful prose about parenting issues. MyBrownBaby will look at current events through the lens of black moms a critical voice that all-too-often is missing from the parenting debate. It’ll be irreverent. And funny. And make you think. Maybe even say, “Amen,” because it reminds you of what’s going behind your closed door, with your family.

I invite you to enjoy the posts written by me on MyBrownBaby. I also invite my writer friends who are moms (or have something to say about moms!) to contribute to MyBrownBaby. If you’ve got some interesting fodder about parenting, relationships, pregnancy, politics, work, etc., as it relates to being or knowing a parent of color, I want to hear it and run it on MyBrownBaby. Send me an email with your ideas here.

Together, we'll raise the bar when it comes to raising our beautiful brown babies, one MyBrownBaby post at a time!

Welcome to MyBrownBaby.
