My One Month Postpartum Body

It's been over a month after the birth of my baby and I've managed to lose a bit of weight. My prenatal weight was 57 kg and three days before I put to bed I weighed 74 kg. Now, a month after delivering my baby, I’m just a little over 62 kg. So yay me!

It's well known that mothers who breastfeed burn about 500 calories a day, so its very important to top by eating, albeit eating healthy.…

My Love-Hate Relationship with Breastfeeding (on demand)

O.K., I admit it, sometimes I HATE breastfeeding. There, I said it. At three a.m. when I am awakened for the third time by my sweet eleven month old nuzzling up against my shirt and crying, I have to say that I have bottle-feeding baby envy. I want nothing more than to hand my baby over to my soundly…

Milk Boosting Lactation Smoothie Recipe

Lactation Smoothie

When I decided to breastfeed my baby, I assumed my body would produce an ample amount of milk. I mean it's hereditary, right? My older sister overflowed! She stocked her freezer with the plastic packets of breast milk. When she went back to work, my nephew didn't transition to formula. He sipped his mom's milk for many months. I on the other hand didn't live in the land of milk and honey. My…

From the Mouths of Nurses: CHILDBIRTH 101

1327_765762693897_1869915688_n

Childbirth is this big black hole of unknown to an expecting Mom. You can read books, seek advice from women who have experienced it, and prepare in every way possible. Yet, no one can actually tell you what is going to happen in there. It's a crap shoot.

For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…

Baby Led Weaning: How to Start Feeding Your Baby Finger Foods

When my first child was just a baby three years ago I was at a loss at how to start giving baby foods. What do you start with? Jars or homemade? How often and how much should I give? This topic is not something that is thoroughly discussed often in doctor’s offices and I found it difficult to find answers when looking online. My doctor just suggested that I could start rice cereals at around four months and start introducing other puree’s slowly from there. So that is exactly what I did. At…

Breastfeeding In Public Helps Increase Awareness and Boosts Confidence For Other Mom’s Who Plan On Breastfeeding Her Baby

I couldn’t believe some of the posts that I have seen where people were bashing nursing mothers for choosing to breastfeed her baby in public.  Most of the posts that I saw said that breastfeeding was gross and they were complaining that they were offended because they saw a mother breastfeeding her baby in public (mostly in restaurants).  When we were created,…

National Breastfeeding Awareness Month: My Breastfeeding Journey

Droppin' Feeds!

For the past few nights, Squeaker has slept in 5+ hour stretches!  Pre-baby, I did not understand how this could possibly be a good thing, but after months of uncomfortable pregnancy sleep and 10 weeks of being in various states of consciousness–I feel like I’ve won the lottery!  I have found sleep to be one of the most contentious topics in new mom land.  Where does he sleep?  Where do I sleep?  Where does dad sleep?  Is it okay for him to sleep in a chair?  Can he sleep swaddled?  Is he…

Story of My Final Pregnancy - My Birth Story

I was super excited and nervous when I found out that I was expecting in September of 2010.  Just a few weeks before I found out, I was watching my mother struggle with her battle with Pick’s disease.  Pick’s disease is a rare form of Alzheimer’s that affects the frontal lobe of the brain.  In August of 2010, she was in the final stages and was admitted to the ICU with severe case of pneumonia.  My dad was out of town, so I spent the last few days with her at her bed side along with my…

The Last Firsts...

I nursed both of my boys for a year each. Now I have weaned my sweet Baby B and its a little bittersweet.

At around 10 months of age, I decided to slowly over the two month span work toward using a bottle regularly. I thought it was because of B's extreme love of nursing and cuddling, that was the reason I couldn't sleep at night anymore. Some people sleep really well with their little ones and co-sleeping is a magical bonding time. For me it meant lying awake the whole night counting…

Supplementing to Exclusive Breastfeeding

 After approximately 2 weeks after delivering my daughter I started having breastfeeding complications. I was in so much pain that I just couldn't have her on my breasts, I had to start giving her the bottle. Following the recommendation I received from a lactation consultant, I rented a hospital grade breast pump to keep my supply until I was ready to breastfeed again.…

The Breast Milk Doll: Ick

There's a Spanish-made doll out there that helps little girls simulate nursing. It's called "The Breast Milk Baby". There's bra type 'bib' girls put over their shirts which has little flower-shaped petals the baby doll can suckle. And suckle it does. There's an audible "sloop sloop sloop" sound the doll makes; and then mommy (in this case a 4 year-old mommy) can burp her fed baby.
