Mommy Talk Tuesday {Breastfeeding}



The Not So Secret
Confessions of a Second Time Mom

This week's topic Breastfeeding!  

Did/do you breastfeed? If you do/did what was your biggest challenge during breastfeeding? What was/is your favorite part of breastfeeding? Do you think it's ok to nurse in public, covered or not? Do/did you ever nurse in public? Do you have any tips for moms struggling with breastfeeding or expectant moms who plan to breastfeed?
------------------------------
 
I love this topic because it seems it has been in the media so much more lately. It is a hot topic for many families and don't even remember if I was asked when I had my first two children. With my first I wanted to BF but with complications and my little knowledge back then (and me being drugged up) I didn't even try to BF. Heck, I wasn't even able to see my baby until about two days later! With my second born I tried for about three weeks but I guess my downfall was tired-ness and also being on meds I wasn't sure if I could BF. She ended up just wanted her bottle. 
 
I am now on week 24 of our third baby (girl) and am firm on breastfeeding! I have always known, as do many mothers, that it is healthy for both mom and baby, and I'm just so excited to have a good birth so I can be ready to feed my child during her first hours of life!
 
Nursing in Public
I know there will be some instances where I know others or I would feel uncomfortable so I don't think I would do it. But if we're in a restaurant and everyone is minding their own business then I would definitely show some boob! BUT, I wish it wasn't like that. Maybe with all the publicity it will get better....

If you have any tips for me this time around please share!!!

  1. That's so great you are planning to breastfeed your baby girl! One thing I swear helped our breastfeeding get off to a good start is skin to skin and nursing right away! Ask the doctors to put her on your chest right away (they'll clean her up and all that right there) and then start nursing her. With my oldest we didn't do that and nursing was really hard for us and I ended up giving up at 4 months. But with my youngest he layed on my chest for about an hour and nursed right away and breastfeeding has come so natural and easy for us! Good luck! Thanks for linking up! :)

  2. I think breast feeding is much better for the baby. I didn't do it but then, years ago we all used a bottle.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
