The Last Firsts...

I nursed both of my boys for a year each. Now I have weaned my sweet Baby B and its a little bittersweet.

At around 10 months of age, I decided to slowly over the two month span work toward using a bottle regularly. I thought it was because of B's extreme love of nursing and cuddling, that was the reason I couldn't sleep at night anymore. Some people sleep really well with their little ones and co-sleeping is a magical bonding time. For me it meant lying awake the whole night counting…

Learn How to Properly Hand Express Breast Milk

Sally is a stay at home mom to her newborn infant. She planned on exclusively breastfeeding her baby; however, one day Jacob decided to skip a feeding. When Sally was pregnant, she never researched breast pumps or what to do in case she ended up with engorged breasts. She wasn’t prepared when her breasts became engorged and they began hurting.

Silver Lining

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

It was a dark and stormy night.

No it wasn’t. It was a fine night as far as the weather goes, but as we sat our two daughters down in the living room to tell them that I had breast cancer, the storm raging inside my brain was pretty harrowing. I attempted a brave face while my husband told the…

My Afterlife Series - The Wakeup Call

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

Greetings from my after life.

I’m not dead yet, by the way, but I had a glimpse of my death recently and I realized, upon considering it, that I was completely unprepared to have it arrive so soon. Why is it that sometimes we need a good kick in the teeth every so often to get us to sit up…

I'm Worried about my health

Worriedface

Being that my daughter depends on me fully and I have to be not only her mother I have to be a her doctor and nurse her counselor and a good example of a mom and woman. I have neglected myself through the years. Being a parent means there will be times that your wants and needs will be put aside.

Why Death has made me want to Live

The most awkward question a person can ask me is a simple, common question you ask someone you don’t know. “Do you have any brothers or sisters?” This can put the person I just met in an uncomfortable position because I have to say “yes, but he died toward the end of my 6th grade year, he had cerebral…

The Pink Invasion

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are turning, the temperature is falling, and the over commercialization of the pink ribbon has started.

Yes…it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that time of year when every product in Walmart, Target, and the grocery stores decorate their packaging with a pink ribbon.  I…

The Breast Milk Doll: Ick

There's a Spanish-made doll out there that helps little girls simulate nursing. It's called "The Breast Milk Baby". There's bra type 'bib' girls put over their shirts which has little flower-shaped petals the baby doll can suckle. And suckle it does. There's an audible "sloop sloop sloop" sound the doll makes; and then mommy (in this case a 4 year-old mommy) can burp her fed baby.

Boob job after having kids?

I'm amazed how many moms would opt for breast implants if they had the opportunity.

And I'm amazed how many moms believe the myth that breastfeeding was the cause for their sagging breasts. Pregnancy and factors like smoking causes breasts to sag, not breastfeeding.

As a breastfeeding advocate, I don't want that myth to be the…

Breast Feeding and Business Travel

I’m on a business trip in Colorado all this week. I can tell you that this trip is a heck of lot easier than it was just six months ago. Back then, I was still nursing D2 and the thought of how I was going to continue my milk supply while on a week long business trip turned my stomach into knots. Unless you can travel with your LO, business travel and breastfeeding…

Swirling Parallels

It always seems to start with a phone call.

 

This time the call came during dinner preparation, a pot roast simmering in the oven with a pile of carrots and potatoes to peel.  As the phone rang, I glanced distractedly at the caller ID.  I didn’t want to answer.  I didn’t want to answer because I had carrot juice on my hands.  I didn’t want to answer because I knew who was calling.

The Big Weanie

I gave myself a deadline, if you will, for weaning Aidan from breastfeeding.  I did this because I am a planner and I like to do things in a well thought out and calculated manner.  Giving myself the deadline of Memorial Day Weekend planted a seed in my mind that said in March and April I needed to pump pump pump and freeze as much breast milk as possible so that he could still have breast milk, just not from the “tap.”  Then, in May, I’d start replacing one breastfeeding with a bottle in a…

Makin' News Monday: Breastmilk Icecream is Dangerous??

Surviving Time

Time has a funny way of fixing things. Over time, pain is forgotten, the bad times of the past are blurred, fear evaporates leaving only residue, and only the fading scars are left.

January 31, 1996 was a Wednesday and as I look back and remember the day, there wasn’t much on the world radar screen. A lot of things blew up around the world on this day, especially in Sri Lanka with bombs planted by the Tamil Tigers and trucks filled with explosives being rammed into the Central Bank.…
