Our food journey-starting solids

Mama don’t fear-meal time tricks are here!

Starting solids was…lets just say different. My babes HATED IT and I am sure I am not alone on this. He would gag and turn his head in refusal. It was quite hilarious but also very frustrating. Our doctor recommended to us that we should start with a green veggie, so we did, we choose to start with broccoli. He loved it until he didn’t. One day he was so into it, then the next, he would cry like no ones business. It left us extremely confused. Continue reading Our food journey-starting solids

The joy of motherhood is something that cannot be explained in words, but there are also times where all you want to do is pull out your hair and be left alone to get some actually SLEEP! My son was a great sleeper and eater until one day we noticed he was arching his back and refusing to eat and never seemed to settle when I placed him on his back to sleep. After a few days of struggle, I took to the internet and figured out he was suffering from silent reflux. This is the reason why he wouldn’t want eat, especially be nursed in the traditional cradle hold and never seemed to want to nap, let alone sleep at night. He was in pain! Seeing him in so much pain was just terrible, I cant even begin to describe it. Continue reading How I cured my babies silent reflux naturally!

Lactation cookies to increase milk supply

When my son was born, I made a commitment to myself to try my best to breastfeed him for a least a year. In the beginning, it was really hard. We had a few latching issues, along with super sore and bleeding nipples, but I carried on through it until it became easier (we are going 3 months strong now)!

So, if you are a breastfeeding/pumping mom like me, then you know it’s all about what you eat. Continue reading Lactation cookies to increase milk supply
