What I Learned During the Last 6-Months of Breastfeeding Bobby

We just passed six solid months of breastfeeding, with the addition of solids in the past three weeks to help Bobby gain weight.

Speaking of which, I really struggle with those growth charts that the MCHN has. We are all made so differently! All four of my boys have been on the petite side of the charts, which, apparently, is a cause for concern. Read More

Happy Father’s Day! Thanks for Being Such a Great Dad, Joseph!

Joseph and I have always had a strong teamwork mentality when it comes to breastfeeding. We are both very pro-the-melon and both believe in my “anytime, anywhere” view.

Obviously, he can’t psychically breastfeed, but, he always tries to assist me where ever possible. This has been especially true in those first few months when it feels like all you do is feed. Read More

Come on Guys, We Can Do More to Normalize Breastfeeding

Where do I start? Well, the truth of the matter is that we shouldn’t have to talk about breastfeeding to raise awareness.

I hope that many of you reading this support all mums and make them feel empowered in their decisions when it comes to feeding and nourishing the little humans we are responsible for keeping alive. Unless we keep talking about breastfeeding, it will never become normal and people will never change their attitudes. Read More

Mum’s Journey: An Open Letter to My Incredible Breasts

My dearest Boobies,

Can you believe that we have been together for eighteen years?

I was about fourteen when you started to make your appearance. Most of the girls at school were wearing sports bras or push up bras, but, not us. You lived in little white singlets with cotton like lace shoulder straps. Read More

Mum’s Journey: Where Has the Time Gone?

I sit here staring at Bobby sleeping. As I sit, I inhale that newborn scent and I realise that he is five months old. Five months old! I honestly feel like it was yesterday that we were whisked away for a caesarean section! Read More

Mum’s Journey: Is it Brave to Breastfeed in Public?

Someone asked me the other day, “How do you have the confidence to breastfeed your baby in public?”

My response was, “Do I need confidence to make my family toast in the morning?” Their face was perfect… tongue hanging out of the side of their mouth, head tilted in thought. Then, they responded, “No…” Read More

Mum’s Journey: Coby is 6 Months Old (4 Months Corrected)

Coby is 6 months old and he will be one before I know it. I want to make an extra effort to take in every moment (well maybe just the good ones!) I will be back at work before I know it.

We have had several “firsts” the last few weeks… both good and bad. There are so many little milestones and I’m trying to remember them all. Read More
