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…

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…

10 Tips for New Breastfeeding Mothers



The first few weeks can be the toughest and rockiest part to developing your breastfeeding relationship with your baby.  I knew it’d be work, but didn’t realize justhow overwhelming it could be!Here are my 10 tips (in no particular order) so you can focus on you and baby: 1 – Arrange for someone else to do chores and cook. You need this time to focus on establishing nursing and your milk supply.  It’s work in the beginning because newborns are demanding.  It’s true! It’s not their fault… Continue

White Poison

When we are home I do not feed my children any white bread, flour, pasta, or rice. Since there is little nutritional value in enriched products, (it is enriched because everything nutritional was stripped then vitamins were added) I fail to see the point in feeding it to my family. I strive on giving them the finest whole grain organic fresh ingredients. Considering I don’t feed my family the above-mentioned food, why would I feed white rice cereal to my baby? I didn’t feed Baby Girl #1…

Frozen Breast Milk to the Rescue

Two months ago I was sick with the flu including a high fever for several days. Although weak and not eating very much, I was still able to breastfeed my five month old twice a day and then I supplemented the rest of her feedings with milk I had stored in the freezer.

10 Things I've learned to do while breastfeeding

As moms we have a lot of responsibilities to handle. Luckily we are naturally adept at being kick-ass multi-taskers (sorry guys, you got the "I don't need to ask for directions" gene instead). I had no idea becoming a mother would equip me to juggle my duties like a well-trained circus clown. Add breastfeeding to the mix of daily activities and I've either created a masterful circus of wonder or road-side freak show.… Continue

Breast is Best, But Not For Everyone

When I think of women and our relationship with each other it seems to be love/hate. In our competitive society it seems that woman longs for that friendship and understanding that only another woman can offer. Yet we give in to judgment of that same kin. This kind of relationship spreads beyond being a woman and translates into all female roles, including and especially motherhood. It seems that truly…

Creating a Positive, Empowering & Mother-Friendly Breastfeeding Community

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.

So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding





As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?

And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign…

The Breast is Best Campaign in Nova Scotia- Is It Working?

I used to believe that breast is always best. I gave the stink eye to bottlefeeding moms, I towed the Breast is Best partyline.

I was wrong.

I passionately believe that breastmilk is the optimal food for your baby. That part is based on science and economics, not opinion. But is feeding your babe at the breast really best for every woman?

For me, as a sexual abuse survivor, breastfeeding was amazingly therapeutic. Breastfeeding my sons transformed my relationship with my…

Can Mommy Pee in Private, Please! ~ Mom Blog ~

Yesterday I was telling my husband that I don't ever remember our other two kids being so connected to me as a baby, as in connected at the hip. Of course they loved their 'Mommy' still do as teenagers, but have funny ways of showing it and wanted to be with me, but this is a bit different.



With Hudson, if I stand up and attempt to walk out of the room, I have a whining combat crawler right behind me. It's quite pitiful, to say the least.… Continue

Breast-Feeding: Not Just for Women?

http://healthland.time.com/2010/10/08/breastfeeding-not-just-for-women/#more-11922



I grew up hearing from my dad that a woman can do anything a man can do. Now, as a parent, I try to impart that same wisdom to my own two girls. Still, biologically, there are some things gals can do that guys can't — breast-feed, for one.… Continue

A Tribute to my breasts! Funny really I promise!

So Wednesday the north country of AZ was hit hard by severe thunderstorms and 27 tornado warnings. Four that touched down where I live, and one that was just 6 miles from my house heading right for us. One tornado knocked a freight train off the tracks and picked up and moved diesels off the road! It made national headlines here. So glad we were spared!...… Continue
