Often, for those without firsthand experience, breastfeeding can appear to be a natural, and sometimes even easy, part of motherhood. All mammals do it, after all. The reality, though, is that often breastfeeding is a difficult part of the early period of parenting. There are a seemingly endless barrage of things that can happen that can make the process tough for mom and baby alike.
You don’t have to look far at all to see evidence of … Keep Reading!!!

Jamie’s blog inspires some of the most colorful commenters. Recently, in response to an article that featured a breastfeeding five year-old, one very articulate individual commented, “This is how serial killers are made.” Well, this happens to be an area that has lately been of great interest among child psychologists, sociologists, and pediatric anthropologists. But let me start with extended breastfeeding itself, then I’ll talk about how serial killers are made. (When a mommy serial … Keep Reading!!!

I’m sitting here in the middle of the rainforest in Uganda writing this. I’ll talk more about the adventure of actually getting here but first we need to discuss white water rafting because I just did it and I was not prepared!
As some of you know, I’ve been working with Joel Lambert on a new project that focuses on adventure travel from two very different perspectives. We selected Uganda as our first destination, gorilla trekking, but what I didn’t … Keep Reading!!!
I asked my friend “Rasheed” (from the most recent live stream) if he was dressed in his own clothes. He looked at me and said, “No, mine were too wet.” Later in the day, he stopped and pointed out where his clothes were drying, so I snapped a photo. I wanted to show this because there was a dignity element to this part of the story that I didn’t understand until I came the Lesvos. I spent the entire … Keep Reading!!!
I believe my passion to connect and help mothers partly comes from a past experience from when I delivered my child and needed help (in this case it was a medical emergency), but the focus was solely on my child who was born early but healthy. No one discussed my condition (which was severe) or even knew how to treat it after delivery. I felt completely isolated, abandoned, and scared that I would die and no medical professional would notice … Keep Reading!!!
Brushes are an important part of make-up application that I have been neglecting. I’ve decided to start investing in more high-end brushes, but since I don’t have a ton of money to spend buying all new make-up brushes, I’ve decided to start taking better care of the ones I have.
Did you know you should be cleaning your make-up brushes once a month, but preferably once a week?
Clean makeup brushes prevent infection from the bacteria that can build up … Keep Reading!!!
