Breastfeeding & Bottle Feeding

Breastfeeding, bottle feeding, pumping, and weaning. Fed is best, mama!

Ah, motherhood.  The things we give up for these little human beings. When you're pregnant, there are a multitude of things you aren't supposed to consume - goodbye alcohol, deli meats, and most medicines. While nursing gives you a little break, you're...
You read that title correctly! My baby got someone else's breastmilk at daycare. I don't know if I'd ever had this fear before it happened... Some moms may fear their breastfed babies getting formula. Either way, when it happens, you...

Well, we are fully submerged into the holiday season! Whether you are hosting this year or are an eager visiting guest, the holidays are usually full of lots of food, fun, laughter, and, of course, a side of stress! If...
"Oh no," I thought as I looked down at the scale. It was 10 months after I had given birth. I hadn't even been curious to step on a scale since my 6 week postpartum checkup. I didn't care if...
It’s true, after an almost 4-year hiatus, my very own Breastaurant is set to re-open this month. I’ll likely be hosting a soft opening sometime in the next week. And while I have no doubt the Breastaurant will be busy...
