Down one more....

Down one more.... I know that I can not breastfeed forever, I know that Kitkat can not be a teenager and still be breastfeeding. But why is it that I have such mixed feelings about weaning her down?! Now when I say weaning down... I do not mean weaning off...... As you might remember I am a scheduled nurser. I nurse my babies on a schedule..... same times every day.

10 Things I've learned to do while breastfeeding

As moms we have a lot of responsibilities to handle. Luckily we are naturally adept at being kick-ass multi-taskers (sorry guys, you got the "I don't need to ask for directions" gene instead). I had no idea becoming a mother would equip me to juggle my duties like a well-trained circus clown. Add breastfeeding to the mix of daily activities and I've either created a masterful circus of wonder or road-side freak show. You be the judge.......more

I'm a formula-feeding pariah... but at least my nipples aren't bleeding!

When I was pregnant with Em, I was all like, I am going to friggin' breastfeed. Period. No ifs. No ands. No buts.  To me, there was no other choice; I knew that breastfeeding was the very best thing for her and I would have rather died (not really) than give her disgusting, artificial, sub-par baby formula....more
