I am currently tandem breastfeeding by two daughters, who are two and four-years-old, while 9 months pregnant. Am I the only one a little surprised by that statement? I’m in a place in my parenthood journey that I never thought I would be, a niche I didn’t even realize existed, much less was possible just a few years ago. So, because it is … Keep Reading!!!

I am currently breastfeeding my sweet 16 month old… 2 times a day, and as I lookback on the past 16 months, I sometimes think “how the heck did I survive this???”… for my journey isn’t the typical one. I know each breastfeeding story is different, especially because I’ve done it with 3 kids and it’s amazing, yet frustrating at the same time at how different it can be with each child.
With my first, I was … Keep Reading!!!

There have been many scientific revelations about ketosis. But what is ketosis and how does it identify with the health risks for your body? Ketosis is often associated with diabetes or weight loss. It is a metabolic process that your body uses to keep working, when it does not have enough carbohydrates from foods, for your cells to use for energy. The body begins to burn fat instead of the needed carbohydrates and forms what are called ‘ketones.’

I am nursing Tristan as I am writing this. He’s three years old and watching TV. He loves to nurse while watching a show. He will ask for it as soon as we get home from dropping big brother Tyler off at school. He no longer naps and I think it’s how he recharges.
Before Tristan was born, I was hoping that I would be able to breastfeed him, but I wasn’t sure whether it would work … Keep Reading!!!

My breastfeeding story is still being written. When I was pregnant with my first, I was nervous about breastfeeding, and my mother, who had successfully breastfed both me and my brother without issue, told me it was not a big deal. I listened to a lot of mainstream wisdom with my first born and ended up supplementing and subsequently fighting for my supply and in the end my daughter weaned herself at 9 months.
With my second … Keep Reading!!!
