Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that. I started breastfeeding in June 2013 when our first baby was born. The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

A look at the DockATot Grand

**I received this product free for review. All opinions expressed are my own.** When discussing something as controversial as sleeping space for your new baby, and even your toddlers, I feel it important to say upfront that I am not a pediatrician or any other kind of doctor. I’m just a mom, trying out a product that I feel comfortable putting our daughter in. She is over a year old and perfectly capable of moving […]

Raising Zola Breastfeeding Shirt — Part Two ((Tank Top))

I’m going to keep this post pretty short, but for more details on this amazing mama-owned company see my first post Raising Zola Part One! Now, as we move towards spring/summer, tank tops and shorts are the way to go here in San Antonio. In fact, the tank top has also been super valuable as a layering piece. I have this shirt in grey as well and wore it on Christmas with just a scarf when […]

Raising Zola Breastfeeding Shirt — Part One ((The Serena))

Finding cute clothes to breastfeed in is always a pet peeve of mine. I need to be able to get dressed quickly feel good about myself & have the ability to breastfeed in public because I’m a mom of two tiny humans. It’s a tall order, and when our son was little, one I often could not fill. I ended up sacrificing fashion for function and I hated it because I didn’t like the way […]

A Breastfeeding Kind of Mama ((Jasmet Tee & Cover Review))

*I received these products for review. All opinions expressed are my own.* To say that breastfeeding is a huge part of my identity as a mother would be underselling the impact it has had on my life. Since our first baby was born back in 2013, breastfeeding has influenced so much of my world. Truly even before he was born since my body decided to start producing liquid gold at 30ish weeks. It was…interesting. Haha  […]

Simple & Sweet Outfits for Mamas #mamaoutfit #OOTD

My outfits are designed to be easy to put together and perfectly tailored for breastfeeding moms (since I am one). They’ll give you the ability to get on the floor with kids, but still feel cute while you’re doing it. You’ll see that I find brands/styles that I love and then use the same pieces over & over again in different outfits. I’ve shared my brand rep/enthusiast codes with you below for some of the […]

A Mama’s Body Image Series: Body After ((TWO)) Babies

The beauty of growing as you get older is our capacity for change. I can say with absolute honesty that I love myself more now than I ever did before having children or even following the birth of our son. You can read my postpartum thoughts from 2014. I re-read that post and was surprised by some of how I felt, but the post-labor waddle I described, I have to say, is completely spot on. It is […]

Bye, Dairy, Bye

Both my kids have Milk Protein Intolerance (MPI), so while I ate as much cheese, ice cream, and whole milk as I could get my hands on prior to their births, I had to give up dairy if I wanted to keep breastfeeding; which, of course, I did. With my son, I went back to dairy as quickly as possible, but with my daughter I’ve been off dairy for 6 months now and I’ve made […]

Eba Totes ((Review)) #ebatotes #ecomama #sustainablefashion

*I received this product at a discount. All opinions expressed are my own. * I’m noticing a huge trend in my life right now. I love beautiful things, but if that said thing isn’t also functional, it has no place in my world. As a mom, I need function, but for myself, I crave something fashion forward. The Eba Tote’s self proclaimed, “where style and versatility meet,” could not be more accurate. The bag is […]
