Product Review: Upspring Lactation Cookies

 Product Review: Upspring Lactation Cookies   This is a tenuous time for me and my LO. I feel that my milk supply is going down because he is nursing in intervals further apart as he gets older. We aren't quite ready for weaning but it is really hard for my body to figure out what to do, how to act. I love that right now I'm no longer getting engorged when my son doesn't nurse but then I feel that my supply is dwindling more and more. I recently tried Upspring Milk Flow Double Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies.  I love that I can take them with me to work and it not only helps with my milk flow but it's...

Prepping and recovering from pregnancy and labor

New moms are often confused, scared, and just don't know what to make of the state of affairs under the belt when they go into labor. You hear horror stories and...well, ladies, sometimes the stories do have some truth to them. What happens below the belt during labor can be much more than you would have anticipated. Having been through three labors and having witnessed two natural births of plus 9 pounders, I'm here to give you the run down on the topic.  When you are going through labor, you are dilating your cervix and the contractions are pushing the baby down the birth canal. As this happens, it causes the head of the baby to crown and the whole...

If I can be a WAHM, should I?

I've had the opportunity to be a WAHM (a work at home mom) and I've also seen all three of my kids go to a day care as infants. I've done the tough commute into the city, leaving super early, and coming home as soon as possible to spend time with them. I've also had the opportunity to work from home or work remotely and also I've worked for myself from home as well.  Having run the gamut of experiences I can give my personal experience and advice to you. First of all, when I had my first child, it was after 5 yrs of deliberate thought and consideration of what I was going to lose out on by having...

Postpartum Hair Loss

So, everyone, I'm in the throes of this problem right now. 4 mos postpartum and my hair.....shedding everywhere. In all of baby's cracks, in my bra, on my arms, in the shower, just everywhere. When I comb it more comes out and when I pull it back or when I shampoo more comes out. It's an unfortunate side effect of postpartum life for me. How about you, did you experience postpartum hair loss too? When I went to visit one of my OB/GYNs during my second pregnancy I had experienced it with my first and was trying to avoid it happening again. He had told me that even without baby I would have had the same hair loss. For that...

Overwhelmed but happy - chronicles of a mompreneur

-Overwhelmed but happy- These words describe me to a T these days. The more I've become involved in my online business and with another baby and figuring out how to keep three children alive, the more I've had to divide my time between two paying jobs and 1 unpaid. The unpaid of course is taking care of my children and the two paying are my online business and then the freelance work that I do to supplement. It can be challenging balancing them all and I just can't get it all done and also be with my kids and care for them and also try to be healthy. It was overwhelming before getting pregnant and was overwhelming while being pregnant...
