Little Pea is now 18 months old, and we are still continuing on our breastfeeding journey. The Princess had decided she had had enough of my milk by the time she was 12 months, which devastated me and left me feeling empty and redundant, yet also meant I could take the medication which successfully controlled my anxiety and depression. Swings and roundabouts and all that, eh?
Anyway… Continue reading
I was recently sent the Nursing Bra Fast Food by Swedish nursing wear company, Boob. Hands down, this is the most comfortable piece of underwear I have ever worn. Ever. And really, that’s all you need to know.
OK, so this review would be a little short if I were to… Continue reading
Breastfeeding, for me, has always been a very simple, cheap experience. The only things I have ever had to buy to make the experience more comfortable have been nursing bras and breast-pads. Even these things are not necessities for everyone – those mums who are lucky enough to be able to pull a regular bra down in order to feed, and not have a milk supply so fast and furious… Continue reading
When Babyhuddle asked if any of their Elite Bloggers were interested in hosting a carnival, I jumped at the chance to showcase some excellent bloggers, and the topic of breastfeeding was one I was naturally drawn to. I have had a great response from the other Babyhuddle bloggers, so I suggest you snuggle down on the sofa… Continue reading
A few months ago I became a breastfeeding peer supporter. The course was fascinating for many reasons, it provided facts and information I didn’t previously know, and it put into clear words things that I had just taken for granted.
One thing that was clear, and that is blatantly clear nationwide given the figures of mothers who breastfeed their babies to 6 months and beyond, is that… Continue reading
That title is not meant to be judgemental in any way, it is a reference to the fact that a health visitor told me that I had “gone wrong” with The Princess by spoon-feeding her. It made me feel awful. We had started her on solids at 19 weeks, just a spoonful of baby porridge in an evening for the first few weeks, mainly because she was an… Continue reading
This morning Little Pea and I took a trip out to our local breastfeeding group. Given that I breastfed The Princess and am fairly passionate about the whole subject, it may come as a surprise that this was my first visit to the group.
After The Princess was born, anxiety and depression kept me indoors and socially detached for a long time. As I started to get… Continue reading
So this is nearly a week late – I honestly don’t know where the time goes these days. I think by the time I actually get chance to sit down and write in an evening, I’m so tired my brain won’t switch on properly and all I’m fit for is a cuppa and mindless trash TV in bed.
Anyway. Last Thursday at the peer supporter group we learned all… Continue reading
Today was an exciting day for me. I started a Breastfeeding Peer Supporter course. This was a fairly big deal for two reasons. 1 You may have noticed I’m fairly passionate about breastfeeding and 2 When The Princess was born I had a difficult time with anxiety and depression. I rarely left the house by myself, and the only group I really took part in was a six-week baby… Continue reading
