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...

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.

He had told me that even without baby I would have had the same hair loss. For that...

The Kiinde system is a well thought out system that comes with the dongles to be able to attach the storage bag directly to a manual or an electric breast pump without having to transfer the milk from a bottle or other storage bag. This is the main benefit of this system because​ typically with a different set up, you would...

Cosleeping with multiple children

Cosleeping with more than one child definitely becomes a 2 bears in the bed and the little one says "i'm crowded, roll over" type of situation. I'm a self proclaimed attachment parent, not in all aspects but definitely in cosleeping. I just find that sleeping with your children is a way to literally hang on to every ounce of their being such amazing sweet things. When I can't relish every cute thing they say, like my 3 yo saying 'pinching' instead of punching, I like to hold them as they sleep. I love seeing their restful faces at peace.  Not to say that I don't need my space or that hubs does either. But, I guess we picked our battles...
