I started work last week and wasnt pumping as much as I should’ve been and noticed a big drop in my supply. I spent my entire 3 day weekend freaking out and trying everything possible, instead of taking advantage of being home with my sweet boy. I stressed myself out which probably didn’t help my supply either. My husband is actually the one who helped calm me down. He let me see the brighter side of things. I wasn’t completely dry, Baby Z was still eating and still his happy talkative self, and we still had plenty of diaper changes. Sometimes we freak out and stress so much over our little ones even though everything is just fine. ⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ .⁣⁣ So to all the moms out there, whether your pumping 2oz or 20oz at a time you are doing a phenomenal job ❤️ and remember FED IS BEST!!! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #newmomslife #mom #momlife #postpartum #3monthsold #pumpingmom #pumpingmilk #pumpingatwork #pumping #pumpingmama #exclusivelypumping #exclusivepumping #pumpingmomma #breastpumping #breastpump #medelabreastpump #medela #breastfeeding #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingproblems #breastfedbaby #fedisbest #breastmilk #breastfeedingweek #postpregnancy #baby #babyboy #babyZ at Gretna, Louisiana

Loosing weight while breastfeeding isn't fact and I really feel that as women we need to stop stating it as if it is . Some women do lose weight, some women put on weight, some women hold their weight (like me), some women loose too much weight, some women the weight just falls off them without even trying. That's amazing for them, and for so many years I was jealous on the inside of that type of women wasn't me. I felt like there was something wrong with me. Why couldn't I too just loose the baby weight . But since having my last baby I'm totally ok with the kg's not falling off. My body has served me and my baby so magically, perfectly and naturally that I feel no shame in the weight I carry due to breastfeeding . I have pretty much been breastfeeding for almost 6 years straight. My body holds every bit of weight while breastfeeding and I have to be ridiculously strict with what I eat and exercise to move that weight. It doesn't come easy but my body has not failed me. It never has. Mama's who bodies don't loose the baby weight or loose too much weight while breastfeeding your body has not failed you! . I declare a new mindset over you. A mindset that loves your body and who you were created to be and are. You created and grew life and breastfeeding is a continued path along the way . When talking to other mum's, women, mum's to be, our daughters let's use language like "in my experience this is how my body reacted to breastfeeding" Let's not set each other up for "failure" in the mind (which isn't true) that they aren't normal or they have failed or their bodies have failed them . Again this is just another aspect of setting women up for a positive postpartum and years beyond postpartum

Reposting for a concerned follower... 😔 I've been wanting to post about this for while... . So so many mommas throw about the word GUILT when describing how they feel about exclusively pumping. Sure, 'mom guilt' is a very real experience, (and all too common, in my opinion!) but there's a chance you might be feeling GRIEF instead. 😔 . We all think we know how this whole motherhood thing is gonna go- we'd follow our birth plan, breastfeeding will come naturally, yada yada... 🙄 But when breastfeeding DOESN'T look like we imagined it would, when we wind up pumping instead of nursing, we feel like we are failing somehow, which can feel like guilt. 😖 What you may be feeling is GRIEF.Mourning the breastfeeding relationship you assumed you'd have. 😞 . By more accurately naming the emotion, you can allow yourself to mourn your expectations, allow yourself to feel GRIEF. You aren't failing, you aren't letting anyone down.. So there's no reason to feel guilty, momma. 😌 . . So have grace with yourself. Many things surrounding pregnancy, childbirth, and new motherhood are beyond your control. Have grace with yourself and with your baby. Do what you have to do, and find gratitude in that which you are able to control, like pumping when you assumed you'd be nursing. 💛 . . . . #grieving #exclusivepumpingmom #pumping #epmom #pumpingexclusively #exclusivepumping #exclusivelypumping #lactation #breastpumping #breastfeeding #epingmom #epingmama #lactationconsultant #breastfedbaby #breastfeedingweek #normalizebreastfeeding #normalizepumping #pumplifechoseme

Is it bizarre that I love the rear of my labels more than the front?! 🤷🏻‍♀️😂 I’m so chuffed with how they look. @lemonandbirch is the wonderful lady responsible for all of my original logo / branding. Cannot recommend Meg enough - she’s the most responsive, lovely creative power house ✨ When hunting for someone who could meet my slightly out of the normal parameters for printing all of the new packaging and labels I stumbled across @aboutthatday and thank god I did 🙏🏼 She produced everything so perfectly & then I blitzed through her website and all the fab stationary offers she has in a heart beat 🖤 So you can now all anticipate your parcels adorned with lovely new stickers, new business cards and discount cards too ✨🖤

Following yesterday’s post, Breastfeeding besides feeding gives comfort and love to our babies, sometimes, our babies will need to nurse just because they need to know we are there for them. They are not playing or controlling us, they just want to be loved. So love love love them ❤️ ! at Boston, Massachusetts

It’s valentines week, and I have been wondering what should I post about? It kept me thinking, why should we just celebrate love this day? Honestly, I am not the best at celebrating this day, and I just wonder what can I do to share more love, I mean motherhood is sharing love is it not? But still I think I can always do more, give more, like telling my daughter “I love being your mom”, it’s s nice to feel someone is happy to “marry you” to “date you” so I think giving appreciation and value to our children is an amazing thing. Creating confidence in who they are, will built self-steem, and self-steem, in my opinion, can do wonders... To be continued. at Boston, Massachusetts

Lots of new mothers feel that they don’t have enough milk to feed their baby or even that their milk is too “weak” or of poor quality. . Nursing, then, becomes difficult and can cause frustration or even feelings of helplessness. . But we want to make sure that we are providing the best nutrition possible for our babies. . Perhaps, our bodies need a little help? . @zandustriveda is a safe and natural ayurvedic supplement that is created, using Satavari - a herb that helps in producing milk in postnatal women. . Zandu is one of India's earliest and trusted health and personal care brand. And as a breastfeeding mom, I rely on it to provide a complete nursing support. . Afterall, nothing is better than a happy, healthy mum and baby well-fed 😊 . PS - Being a lactating mother I highly recommend @zandustriveda to all new Mummas as it helps in increasing the breast milk in mothers. . . #Zandustriveda #striveda #mummamoments #increasingbreastmilk #breastfeedingweek #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeed #breastfeedingmama #breastmilk #breastisbest #breast #feeding #feedingwithlove #feedinstagram

To feed on demand, to sleep train, to sleep, what should I do? Is it normal that my baby keeps waking every 3-4 hours? 🤱🏼Well, to be honest, by my experience I was too lazy to sleep train my baby, so I just co-slept (or still do 🤣), so I was close to her and able to feed her without going into her room etc. 🤱🏼But that didn’t make me still wonder if it was normal? And of course is normal for babies and TODDLERS to keep waking in the middle of the night. 🤱🏼Have you ever been sleeping and all of the sudden you wake up and it’s hard for you to go back to sleep, that you end up reading a book, or using your phone? Well your baby/toddler goes into to the same, they have sleep cycles. 🤱🏼They will learn to go back to sleep, and nursing them to sleep won’t harm them, it’s a tool, use it. 🤱🏼 Breastfeeding your baby brings comfort as much as it nourishes them. 🤱🏼And of course they will be able to go back to sleep on their own, soon, trust me, they won’t go to college needing you 😬. 🤱🏼 But again always do what’s best for your family. at Massachusetts

2 lata i 1 miesiąc. Czyli 25 miesięcy karmienia piersią. Powoli kończymy. 💦💦💦 pewnie dobijemy do 2.5 roku, bo chcę odstawiać powoli i jak najmniej stresowo. Na razie ograniczamy jedzenie w dzień. 🤱🏼👶🏼 Zostawiam na razie 2 karmienia. Postaram się jeszcze w tym miesiącu, lub w marcu przejść na jedno karmienie w dzień, a na żądanie tylko w nocy. 🌜✨ noce Staszek powoli przesypia, wiec mam nadzieję, że pójdzie gładko. 💧💧💧 jestem z siebie dumna, że udało się tym razem karmić mimo tylu przeciwności! ❤️ Będzie mi tego brakowało. #breastfeeding #breastfeed #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedingweek #karmieniepiersią #mlekomamy #mamaisyn

#Repost from @littlelatches ( • )( • ) Boobin’ around the clock? In those early newborn weeks, you definitely are! So how many times a day should you breastfeed your newborn? ▫️ ▶️ Every 2-3 hours ▶️ 8-12 times in 24 hours ▫️ Newborns have little stomachs and breast milk is easily digested, so you should breastfeed your baby often. Keep in mind, some babies breastfeed every 2-3 hours like clockwork while others want to breastfeed many times in a short period. Every baby is different so be sure to learn your baby’s cues. #breastfeedingwhole30 #breastfeedingmomma #normalisebreastfeeding #breastfeedingclothes #breastfeedingireland #breastfeedingwear #breastfeedingphotography #breastfeedingtwins #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeedingsupport #breastfeedingmommies #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingjourney #breastfeedingproblems #breastfeedingatoddler #breastfeedingdiet #breastfeedingfriendly #worldbreastfeedingweek #breastfeeding #breastfeedingmom #breastfeeding #breastfeedingweek #extendedbreastfeeding #breastfeedingart #breastfeedingawareness #breastfeedingisbeautiful #breastfeedingtoddler #breastfeedingmum #breastfeedingtips

pasti tahu kan soal ASI booster? Ya, beberapa bahan yang dipercaya bisa membantu meningkatkan produksi ASI. Namun, tahukah Bunda bahwa dukungan suami bisa jadi ASI booster alami buat seorang ibu menyusui. . "ASI booster alami itu support suami. Beneran lho. Ada pasien saya yang dibantu suaminya ketika memerah ASI, itu deras lho ASI-nya," kata konselor laktasi dari Mayapada Hospital Jakarta Selatan (MHJS) dr Ameetha Drupadi dalam Live Instagram 'Menguak Fakta dan Mitos Menyusui', Senin (6/8/2018). . Atau sesimpel memijat punggung istri aja udah bisa jadi bentuk dukungan suami buat istri yang sedang menyusui lho, Bun. Soalnya, ketika dipijat oleh suami, ibu menyusui bisa bikin happy. Nah, ketika happy akan dirilis hormon oksitosin yang berperan penting dalam lancarnya ASI. . Dukungan suami, lanjut dr Ameetha bisa diwujudkan lewat hal-hal simpel. Misalnya, membantu menuangkan ASI perah ke wadah atau bahkan membantu menuliskan tanggal ASI perah. Dengan kata lain, suami nih, Bun, yang me-manage penyimpanan ASI perah. . "Membantu ibu menyelesaikan urusan rumah tangga, membantu mengasuh si kecil, membantu menyendawakan bayi setelah nyusu, memberi ASI perah, itu juga udah jadi bentuk dukungan dari suami. Ketika suami melakukan hal itu, istri merasa disayang kan ya jadi merasa happy," tambah dr Ameetha. . Nah, buat Bunda dukungan simpel apa nih dari suami yang bisa jadi ASI Booster alami? Ceritain ya di kolom komentar, atau boleh tag si Ayah biar tau 😆 . Baca artikel lengkap di .

Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for babies starting from 0 months. Women go through a lot after delivery and need a support system to help them breastfeed successfully. A husband's support makes it possible for her to succeed at breastfeeding.

When my daughter was just born, I remember a few moms with newborns telling me they didn’t want to hold their babies for too long because the baby will get used to it. This wasn’t the worst part, it gets worse, people actually recommended them using a pillow, placing the baby on the pillow and holding her baby with the pillow beneath the baby, so they wouldn’t have instant contact with the baby. This for me was so so sad, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing, and then I thought to myself, what do they think about breastfeeding if they think holding her will make the baby create bad habits? ❤️ holding your baby won’t harm them!!! It is the other way around!! Your newborn was 9 month inside of you, how can we think they will be ok to be place by themselves on day one? They need instant contact with their parents. ❤️ breastfeeding your baby to sleep won’t harm them! It is actually what breatsmilk does, it helps the baby to get sleepy and when moms are bf they get sleepy too, so both can rest! ❤️ if this works for you, don’t feel guilty about doing it, they will grow out of it! ❤️ and if it doesn’t work for you, do what works for your family, EVERY single baby is different and every parent too!

I couldn't get the proper repost sticker on this image because it covered the words, but OMG this is so true 😂 Many a day/night have been spent online shopping... Amazon, Disney, Etsy, Asda, you name it, I probably have a full online shopping basket ready and waiting 😂 In my defence, I have tried to stop spending... I am now on level 700 and something on Candy Crush 😂 because I can't just sit there and breastfeed for hours at night without doing something or I'd nod off! Thank goodness Arthur is now sleeping a little longer 😁😂 . . Once we had a package of nappies delivered and my hubby and I were confused for ages, neither of us thinking we'd ordered anything until I realised I'd signed up to a free Aldi sample at 3am 😂 he obviously wasn't mad about that but when the Amazon packages started arriving multiple times a day in the run up to Christmas, he did start to get palpitations... . . . #Repost @stylish_mum1 • • • This did make me chuckle. Anyone else guilty of late night feeding shops?? I'm thinking of joining a support group! . . . . #breastfeedingatoddler #breastfeedingwear #breastfeedingwhole30 #breastfeedingart #breastfed #tribemumchat #mummlovex #breastfeedingph #breastfeedwithoutfear #breastfeedingsupport #breastfeedingphotography #breastfedtoddler #breastfeedingjourney #tlshappynewsquad #breastfeedingproblems #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeeling #breastfeedingmama #tribemumlove #breastfeed #breastfeedingweek #breastfedbabies #breastfeeding #breastfeedingtoddler #breastfeedingtips #breastfeedingisbeautiful #mumtribe

A busy day today driving about meeting new mum's and helping them on their breastfeeding journey. 💕💕💕 One of the biggest concerns I come across is the worry of "is my baby getting enough" and contrary to what some might have you believe there is very little with regards to breast size that acts as an indicator as to whether or not your baby will be satisfied. If this is your worry I always irge you to seek the professional help of your local lactation consultant. Sometimes only one visit is all you will need. Check out the ACLI website to find your nearest available IBCLC. #birthbabybeyond #breastfeedingtips #breastfeed #breastfeedingisbeautiful #breastfeedingatoddler #breastfeedingfriendly #breastfeedingtoddler #normalisebreastfeeding #breastfeeding #breastfeedingawareness #breastfeedingbaby #breastfeedingmommies #brea #extendedbreastfeeding #breastfeedingwear #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeedingph #breastfeeding #breastfeedingtwins #breastfeedingclothes #breastfeedingphotography #breastfeedingmomma #breastfeedingart #breastfeedinginpublic #breastfeedingproblems #prilaga #worldbreastfeedingweek #breastfeedingmom #breastfeedingmama #breastfeedingweek #breastfeeding #breastfeedingsupport

Breastfeeding is like a marriage or partnership. You have to remember that just because your baby cannot communicate their needs with words you understand, it doesn't mean that they don't have needs and it doesn't mean that they're not communicating them with you. They're communicating with you all the time. 🕐 * Through their cries. * Head movements. * Mouth Movements. * Hand Movements... * and everything in conjunction. The question is, are you tuned in and paying attention? * When is your child more at peace? * Less cranky? * More content? It's when you are tuned in... and when you're with them, right? Their contentment is their way of telling you that you are loving them enough. Their response to your love and attention is the happy baby that you desire. And when you're breastfeeding, you're tuned in, connected, in sync, together, cuddling the baby. It doesn't get much better than this. Babies are 100% dependent on you (for the time being) and they're letting you know this, make sure that you're listening and responding to their requests for nurturing, cuddles and love, so that they start life with a strong loving foundation. They deserve YOUR best.

Oh my gosh, what an incredible mama share from the beautiful @danithedoula_ Seriously, your works & photos are just DIVINE! PS if you love all things birth, Dani is a Doula, go mama!! ・・・ BEYOND OBSESSED 💫💖 @beyondthewillowtree you did an absolutely amazing job on my rings! These rings contain Myahs umbilical cord and my breast milk. Both extremely hard journeys for me (getting pregnant and breastfeeding) both the hardest things I have ever had to go through in my life and with patience, love and perseverance I achieved both 💖💖seriously thank you so much for these beauties! They are so super special to me! The setting of the rings remind me of a universe! A universe is all of time, space and their contents. including planets, stars, galaxies and all other forms of matter and energy! I feel as though all those dark days I endured those horrid feelings of woe, I knew deep down I could always count on the universe eventually to align and bring my life happiness, peace and tranquillity. That day finally came when I gave birth to my gorgeous daughter. If I died tomorrow I would die the happiest woman on the plant. I have my beautiful family that is full of love and that is all I ever wanted! I feel complete and I feel now everything else that happens in life is just a bonus. Little piece of interesting knowledge: The word galaxy is derived from Greek word galaxias which means “milky” which fits perfectly with my milk ring (as I feel they look like planets in a universe) • • • #breastfeeding #brestmilk #galaxy #universe #love #hope #faith #patience #journey #baby #babies #motherhoodunplugged #motherhood #positive #minimalist #birthing #photography #photooftheday #born #breastmilkjewelry #simplychildren #breastfeedingweek #simplychildren #natural #live #thehappynow #mylife #myfavorite #doula #adelaidedoula
