• We’re Still Breastfeeding and My Daughter is 16 Months

    We’re Still Breastfeeding and My Daughter is 16 Months. I didn’t have any real expectations in regards to how long we’d do this thing. My goal was to make it to a year simply because I didn’t want to pay for formula. I know the benefits and I’m cool with the convenience. My Doctor has backed me up and encouraged me to continue til she’s at least two.

    It’s come sooner than I thought, but I think it’s time to wean our one year old. I’m a Mom who loves to nurse! I’ve done so with all three of my babies, each for a different period of time.

  • 5 Funny Signs You’re a Breastfeeding Mom

    As wonderful as being a breastfeeding Mom is, it’s not all bonding and baby smiles. Some days I find it really hard to have a child attached to me 24/7! In an effort to deflect my frustrations, I bring you humor. If you’re a breastfeeding Mom too, perhaps you can relate? Here are 5 signs you’re a breastfeeding Mom. You change your clothes multiple times a day. Oh no, not because of baby puke (though that’s a factor too.) No, you’re changing multiple times a day because your body can’t seem to figure out whether it’s hot or cold. Over the course of approximately 8 hours, you’ll go from a heavy sweater, to…
