Why you need to take nursing postnatal vitamins

Vitamins

Vitamins

I received these product for free in exchange for writing my honest review. Although the product was free, all opinions are of my own.

Breastfeeding can be very rewarding but it can have risks if you don’t take care of yourself. When my son was 13 months old I decided to go to the doctor. I hadn’t been taking any of my vitamins as I should have been. I was weak, exhausted constantly, didn’t feel well, etc. I found out I was malnourished from breastfeeding and not properly taking care of myself.  Continue Reading →

First Time breastfeeding

When you’re a first-time mom you don’t know what you actually need to breastfeed. I know I had no idea what was needed. After scouring the internet but I  could never find a list. I had to play a guessing game as to what I needed. I have been breastfeeding 11 months now that no way makes me a pro but I do know the essentials I used. To me, these are products I couldn’t live without and it makes life so much easier.

Breastfeeding at the airport is just something a lot of people don’t think about. There is a lot of other things we are already having to think about.

I wasn’t near any of the breastfeeding locations.  Continue Reading →

One way to solve biting while breastfeeding

Breastfeeding and biting

When I first thought about breastfeeding one of my concerns was when my son got teeth. What would I do then? I did not want to become a chew toy. Yikes, the thought of him biting me was terrifying and painful. I was worried that I would not be able to continue to breastfeed once those first teeth came in. I knew I wanted to breastfeed as long as I possibly could; just didn’t know how that would be feasible. It really didn’t help that everyone (people who had never even breastfed themselves) would tell me he was going to bite me really hard. They would also tell me how I should start weaning him before he got teeth for that exact reason.

Breastfeeding for the very first time

Breastfeeding

When I first found out I was pregnant I always knew I wanted to breastfeed my son. I thought it would be the easiest thing just put him to my breast and he would latch on. It seems simple, right? After all, I had no one to really tell me differently. I didn’t know anyone who breastfed and you don’t read about the first time they latch. It just seems like a subject no one is really comfortable talking about.
