Bad Day

Never quit on a bad day.

Instead, do these two things first.

Where are we now? – 20 Months

I have mostly done posts about what I think new moms might be needing help with so I thought, this time, I’d let you into my little world for a second.  I did the same in a more general way over here, but here, I thought I’d dive deeper into our nursing relationship and what…

Tip of the Day – Preventing Clogs

Feeling a little hard in a spot on your breast?  Feel like you might have a clog coming on? Nurse your babe with their chin pointing to the clog.  It will assist in loosening the clog, or wanna-be-clog before it becomes a clog.  The direction in which their chin points is where they have the…

Now That’s Hilarious

10 Hilarious things about breastfeeding: 1. Milk Face There will be a time when your milk is flowing and for whatever reason they decide to unlatch and by consequence get a face full of milk.  It’s in the eye, it’s in their nose, in their hair.. just everywhere, and it will be the cutest funniest…

“Comfort Nursing”

Comfort nursing is always said with a negative connotation.  As if our baby nursing for comfort is a bad thing. But put a binky in a baby’s mouth and it’s just, “Yup, they have a binky.” Mother’s are often warned against being a pacifier to their babies.  This doesn’t sit well with me for some…

Nursing to Sleep

We’re made for it, we’re good at it,and our babes love it.  So I don’t buy the whole, “you’re spoiling them if you breastfeed them to sleep” idea. The fact is, breastfeeding is actually meant to relax our babe and ourselves!  If you ever notice a wave come over you as you’re nursing that feels…
