Jun 20, 2019
Weaning-our-toddler

There is so much information, tips and advice on breastfeeding, especially regarding milk supply, establishing a routine, facing challenges and more. Kicking-off your breastfeeding journey can be difficult but so can deciding to stop. It took me weeks to feel okay about weaning our toddler.

Becoming-a-mother

Becoming a mother is life changing, redefining, challenging, overwhelming, exciting, tiring, the biggest blessing any woman can imagine… every single time. Our girls may share a gene pool but they were all born with their own needs, personality and preferences. Becoming a mother, 3 times over has meant redefining motherhood, 3 times over. Yes, our values and parenting goals are the same for all our kids but my approach to mothering them isn’t. Eliana is driven, independent and self-critical by…

How to breastfeed 43

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. I’m sharing all that I’ve learnt in the hopes that it will help another mama that might be struggling or feeling lost because I sure could have used a “breastfeeding for…

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 BATH TIME WITH BABY7358

Remember when you were pregnant (maybe you are) and you went to prenatal classes… They would have that one class – demonstration day. The nurse would show you how to hold baby, nurse baby, sooth baby, change a diaper and even how to bath and dress baby. Viola! You know it all because obviously figuring out the basics would be the hardest part of parenting… What if we left the demos to YouTube and rather focused on the more challenging…
