#Momming101: Breastfeeding for beginners

Mar 7, 2019
Breastfeeding for beginners

This post is not about doing breastfeed “right” or a list of ways to make it work best. Neither is it a breastmilk vs. formula debate. It is however about my experience as a mama of three breastfed babies. All of which differed significantly when it came to nursing.

10 Easy self-care tips for moms

As woman and especially as moms we tend to care for and shower others with love but somehow we forget to take care of ourselves. We serve everyone and give till we feel there’s nothing left to give, then somehow we give even more… We get worse the more kids we have, the more responsibilities we take on and before you know it self-care seems impossible. A luxury we simply can’t afford. We judge ourselves harshly, feel guilty and worry…

Just A Mamma Disney Be Amazing

Disney Princesses… Don’t we all have a favourite? That one princess that blew you away with her strength, charm and beauty. Someone you could look up to and aspire to be. For me it was (and will always be) Princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The opening scene with her reading a book and dreaming of exploring the world described me to a tee – a little girl, stuck in a small town, always reading and plotting her way…

We all know mom life is hard but it can also be hard on your skin. An unexpected keepsake from pregnancy has been pigmentation. Every time I fall pregnant we don’t just grow our family but I also get an added pigmentation spot. Always on the left side of my face, around my eyes and upper cheek. The pigmentation gets darker and the spots bigger and more. They tend to lighten up after breastfeeding but never disappear. We are suppose…
